House of the Week: 98 Old Colony Road
Secret passageways, a rolling ladder, indoor-everything, and premium finishes. But what is this — no golf simulation studio?! Well, I suppose prospective tenants of 98 Old Colony Road will have to make due with just an indoor pool, games room, sauna, squash court, wet bar, drums room, and more. Sacrifices, you know? While you can get the whole package for just shy of $8 million, I'd be happy with the winding bookcase and hidden built-in passageway. If only expired TTC tickets counted as legal currency.

Insatiable readers, Dewey Decimal loyalists, anyone who gets excited by the phrase "hidden doorway" (guilty). Good for those who don't want to have to share anything with their partners (including toilet seats), as well as impassioned drummers/squash-players/pool sharks/swimmers, especially those who don't want to leave home to practice.
MOVE ON IF:
You're a struggling recluse and you fear never leaving your home. You get lost easily. You'd rather spend your money on eight $1 million homes, rather than one $8 million home.
