Casa Loma (From Spanish: House on the Hill) is a bourgeois house on the hill of Davenport in Toronto, Canada. It was built for Sir Henry Pellatt who lived there from 1914 to 1923. The latter was forced in 1923 to abandon his home for financial reasons.
Built between 1911 and 1914, this residence was designed and built by architect Edward James Lennox in a mix of architectural styles specific to the eclectic spirit of the time. It thus meets including Norman styles, Gothic, late Romanesque and Scottish baronial. The architect Lennox defined the architecture of Casa Loma as “French Baronial,” a term coined by him.
