Explore the lush gardens of a historic stone mansion called Maus Park.
Welcome to Maus Park, an imposing stone mansion outside Toronto. We’ve already had a walk through this glorious antique-filled mansion plus a close-up look at an old-house kitchen with its rustic charm. Yet there’s so much more to see — expansive gardens, simply but artfully landscaped and beautifully maintained.
A view of the main house from the extensive lawn shows how intimacy is created in the garden by superbly placed rows of hedges and flower beds with a garnish of antique garden ornaments.
The sculpture of a muse stands against a tiered arrangement of flower bed, hedge and background trees that draws the eye from earth to sky.
A whitewashed, arched trellis inset acts as a screen near a natural-wood bridge with crossbuck rails not far from the pond.
A break in the hedges creates both a pathway and a vista when seen straight on.
Hedges that start and stop create mini-views across the panoramic property.
The staggered arrangement and play of heights creates a sense of mystery as you approach the pond. Who knows exactly what you’ll see around the bend?
Water adds a peaceful, luxurious aspect and another type of garden feature.
The guest quarters and studio building has its own gardens, enclosed by a picket fence.
