The Manor was constructed around 1921-1922 as a dream project for Phillip Reginald Morris, a prominent lawyer, and investor in the stock market. His dream was to build his own private “castle” as a testament to his financial success. However, the construction was halted after the 1929 stock market crash which eroded Philips's investments causing him to file for bankruptcy.
For nearly two decades the house remained an empty shell of unfinished walls, symbolizing one of the hardships of the Great Depression. But by 1948, things began to look promising as Alan Morris, the son of Phillip Morris, had completed his schooling in engineering and was seeking to become a builder and renovator. Alan decided to continue the construction of the mansion and it was completed in 1956.
The castle was fully restored in the summer of 1996 and the Trajkovski family, who had acquired a long tradition of fine dining success with their name, converted it into one of the finest dining and event spaces in the GTA, naming it Edgewater Manor .
