On stage, Deadmau5 is so flashy and weird with that mouse helmet he wears, but when it comes time to get away from the EDM stage, Deadmau5 apparently prefers a style that’s more closely reminiscent of your super-rich great grandfather.
Joel Zimmerman (Deadmau5’s real name) owns a grandiose $5-millon estate outside of Toronto in a town called Campbellville in the Halton region. Normally, the area is known as a tourist destination for GTA dwellers thanks to its amenities that harken back to the old days, like ice cream parlours, a race track and Mennonite furniture shops. Deadmau5 went along with the theme when he bought his 14,000 square foot castle-like mansion on 118 acres.
The house has a small swimming pool and pool house, a movie theatre, a three-car garage, four bedrooms and six bathrooms. He parks his $1-million McLaren P1 there from time to time.
Inside Deadmau5’s estate are hanging chandeliers, colourful handwoven area rugs, opulent pillows and enormous windows that look out on a very natural, treed landscape. The kitchen has dark wood cabinets and marble countertops
The exterior is covered in stone and the two-storey entranceway is flanked by massive Romanesque columns. The pool area is paved in stone as well and the landscaping is spectacular.
Would you believe that a house like this suits Deadmau5’s style, or did you imagine him in something more modern?
