House of the Week: 16 Donino Avenue

Toronto is not, in fact, all shoeboxes in the sky. Indeed, there are some city residences that actually touch ground, flourishing from it with granite finishes, indoor pools, and frankly frivolous numbers of bathrooms. This is the start of a weekly look at some of the latest and greatest homes for sale in Toronto, which will probably confirm to most of us that we have chosen the wrong careers.

So, here's a reason to send your headshot over to Millionaire Matchmaker's headquarters. A newly built, $5.5 million home in heart of Hogg's Hollow. Forget using those legs — take the elevator to your bedroom. Heated floors? Try heated marble floors. There's even a built-in dog bath in the three-car garage, and a seven-speaker built-in system throughout the home. Because it's hard to yell "Dinner's Ready!" over 7,000 square feet, after all.

GOOD FOR:

People with big furniture, a dog (specifically, one that needs washing), and knee issues. Perfect for those who like to shop at Costco but hate that they can't fit all of their food buys in the fridge. And, there's an amazing master wardrobe and bathroom that will surely help to ensure (at least a few months of) marital bliss.

MOVE ON IF:

You don't have $5.5 million. You don't want to be accused of sucking the "charm" out of the area. You need a full-sized swimming pool, not a puny exercise pool. Oh, and you call that a wine cellar?
