Last week saw Ancroft Place [map] host a special preview event and the BuzzBuzzHome team were one of the lucky few to be invited along (pictured below).
A lovely evening was spent in the gorgeous grounds of this unique plot of land just North of Bloor on Sherbourne.
We were treated to a tour of the grounds while sipping on champagne and pomegranate (or champagranate as I like to call it), some Pimms, and delectable finger foods, cheeses and fresh fruit to beat the band.
All very…….’English’, which suited the evening perfectly considering we were in a place that is a direct throwback to an English countryside manor.

Vernon Croft, President of Canlight Realty was the gracious host of the evening and spoke about his love for Ancroft Place, and the tender care that has gone into building it, and will continue to go into it, as well as providing some insight into how the project all came about.
We went to visit Ancroft Place a few weeks back and reported about it here. In the meantime, there has been great work put into updating and renovating the units and the place is really starting to take shape.

Check out the below video to get a feel for how it looks and to hear Mr. Shaw talk about a project that he obviously holds dear to his heart.
