Log Mansion Brampton

This gorgeous Ontario log mansion is located in Brampton. It’s hidden away from the newer housing community just west of it and the entrance to the property is a long driveway tucked in a nestle of trees. The property is just feet away from a newer subdivision.

The history of the log house is that it was built in the 1980’s by Thomas Blake, a Quality Assurance Consultant.

There are three bedrooms on the main floor and two in the basement. There are two interior spiral staircases and one exterior one.

The main fireplace is set into a large stone wall that makes up the majority of the wall and forms an arched doorway. Just beyond the arched doorway is another room with a fireplace. Someone had lit a fire either in the fireplace or on the floor and burned a hole through the floor.

The front doors look as if they belong on a business. Above the doors is a circular stained glass window. In another room is a stained glass window of a unicorn.

This is a view taken from the top of the staircase on the main floor. There’s no railing here, I felt a sense of danger standing here. As of January 2020 the interior has seen even more vandalism beyond what’s shown in these photos.

The kitchen is modern with a fireplace of its own, the other side of the fireplace opens into the dining room. There’s a large exhaust fan set over the stove and a wall unit oven. The ceiling is made up of wooden beams laid out into rectangular shaped sections.

Vandals have torn the counter off and damaged most every pane of glass.

  1. What a damn shame! Just saw this place on YouTube. My wife and I were saying how awesome it would be to own it and fix it back up.

  2. Just watched a YouTube video on it today 4/29/20 and it really saddens me to learn it burned down just a few weeks ago. It could’ve been restored to its original state. Vandals suck.

  3. I just found out about this today. I was one of the carpenters who worked for over a year on this log house in the 80s. My mom and dad have recently moved to a nearby retirement home and since it was a nice day we decided to go for a drive and look for \’uncle Tom\’s cabin\’. To find out that it was no longer there was shocking but to know that such a beautiful piece of craftsmanship was left abandoned and then burned to the ground is almost incomprehensible! At the moment all I can feel is anger at both the developers, whose only interest is in making money rather than preserving such an amazing structure and the the vandals whose purpose seems to be only to destroy what others have built. It\’s sad and a shame.
