A Mississauga mansion that’s fit for the one per cent can’t seem to find its way off the market.
The majestic home located at 2290 Saxony Ct. is going to a second auction after a winning $6.2-million bid for the home (less than it cost to build) in January fell apart after the buyer couldn’t secure financing, reported The Toronto Star.
It had previously been listed for $11 million.Check out photos of 2290 Saxony Ct. and 2346 Doulton Dr.:
“Saxony Manor” is a 23-room, 18,000-sq.-ft., four-story home with an eight-car garage, wine cellar and games room.
The bidder, who has not been named, apparently has money tied up in overseas banks, and could lose $100,000 in deposits if someone else bids successfully at the next auction, The Star reported.

The home is listed on the Multiple Listing Service for $1 and has sat there unsold for eight months.

Some people say that your wedding day is supposed to be the happiest day of your life. It turns out, the “Big Day” falls short of expectations for many couples.
We were reminded of this once again on Wednesday when Jimmy Fallon shared a wedding disaster he witnessed firsthand using the hashtag #weddingfail and got the topic trending on Twitter.

It’s time to start truly living life and defining success beyond the metrics of money and power — and it’s never too late to start, no matter your age or circumstances.
Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, and Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, opened the Thrive conference in New York City on Thursday, April 24, with the message that it’s time for people to start redefining success beyond money and power.
“If we define success by money and power, it’s like sitting on a two-legged stool — you’ll topple over,” Arianna said. “And more and more people are toppling over.”
The Thrive conference is built around conversations on how to redefine success to include a third metric of success — based on the four pillars of well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving, Arianna said.
Arianna shared her own wake-up call — when she collapsed in 2007 from sleep deprivation and burnout, breaking her cheekbone in the process. “That was the beginning of my re-evaluating my life,” she said. “By any sane definition of success, if you’re lying in a pool of blood in your office –”
“That’s a bad sign,” Mika chimed in.
Mika shared her own story, including her reliance on pills to get sleep here and there. She said she had had enough when she realized how unsustainable her life was becoming — and Arianna approached her about it.
“It was lonely, and it wasn’t a healthy way to live,” Mika said. “It was beginning to impact my health on the outside as well … I was trying to be all things to all people, but I was burning out fast. And Arianna told me, in her accent, that it was time to pause. So we paused.”
The Thrive conference, held at the New York City Center in Manhattan, grew out of last year’s women’s conference, which had a more intimate setting — Arianna’s apartment. At that event, titled “The Third Metric: Redefining Success Beyond Money & Power,” hundreds of influencers in media, entertainment, business and politics gathered to discuss how to redefine success beyond money and power. Also co-hosted by Arianna and Mika, the 2013 conference featured speakers including Jill Abramson, Katie Couric, Adrian Grenier, John Mackey, Joe Scarborough, Valerie Jarrett, Erica Hill, and George Stephanopoulos.
“The way we define success isn’t working,” Arianna said at last year’s conference, as reported in the New York Times. “More, bigger, better — we can’t do that anymore.”
