This mansion in Baden, Ontario offers a unique experience for all visitors. A tour through this magnificent 1877 « Castle » is a step back into the lavish Victorian era. The painted Trompe l’oeil (French for “Fools the eye”) murals have been designated of national significance. The home presents an arcade of illusionary columns and alcoves. Are they real…or not? We offer a unique ‘snapshot’ of life in Victorian Canada.

Castle Kilbride is not exactly a castle as you would imagine it to be. Although this 10,000 square foot home is the size of a small castle, James Livingston built his home and named his castle affectionally after his birthplace of East Kilbride, Scotland.
