$18 million Ontario mansion has hosted a queen and looks like it's out of a fairytale

Looking like an English countryside Tudor home, this 160-acre Caledon mansion belongs in the pages of a fairytale... or at least in Downtown Abbey. Yet, it's only 20 minutes north of Pearson Airport.

The main sitting room offers sweeping views of the rolling hills of Caledon.
