House of the week: 25 Fallingbrook Drive

Posted by Staff / July 8, 2014

25 Fallingbrook DriveThis house located at 25 Fallingbrook Drive in Birchcliffe-Cliffside is a dream come true for those looking for a serene lake view within short commuting distance of downtown Toronto. Even better, the house is located on a lush ravine. You can tan on the deck of the in-ground pool and enjoy a drink at the outdoor bar or take a swim and look out at Lake Ontario. It's just like swimming in the lake but warmer and without the algae!

The interior is nothing to shake your head at either. Large floor to ceiling windows bring tons of light into the spacious living room. The master bedroom isn't lacking for space or light either, and the high ceilings just add to the general openness of the space. Oh, and don't forget about the large walk in closets - plenty of room for your shoe collection to grow too. Next time someone makes a negative barb about Scarborough, send them a link to this gorgeous property.

25 Fallingbrook DriveGOOD FOR

Entertainers. This house is just screaming for people who love to put on parties. If it's the summer, invite friends over for a dip in the pool and a barbeque. Don't let the winter months stop you, though - the living room has plenty of room for quests too. Break out the wine and canap├ęs, and you're good to go.

25 Fallingbrook Drive TorontoMOVE ON IF

You're not willing to shell out the extra dough for large furniture. It may be hard to think of the spacious 5000 square feet of this house as problematic. But the large size of the living room and master bedroom (just for starters) make regular sized furniture look comically undersized. You'll have to put on your design glasses to really make use of all of the space that's available. After all, if you're spending over $2 Million on a home, you have to make the most of it!

You know you're poor when the treehouse is bigger then your apartment.

Holy crap, a room for stuffed ponies and a tree house?
5000 sq feet and $2.2 million but 1 garage?

They only need a 1 car garage to store their $5K bicycles in.

Considering a similar price will get you a closet downtown, not bad.

I will have to add "furniture too small" to the burgeoning "first world problem" list.

Your going to get a pretty grand condo for for 2.2 million dollars. Maye not 5000sq ft around 2500 to 3000 sq ft.

Perhaps. But that's all you get. No view, no private pool, and certainly no treehouse.

I'd live in that tree house. I'm not one for massive furniture anyway.

Clearly you have never heard of MLS try. I find it so humorous when the information people try to pass along without doing internet 101, Google it.

Too big. A waste. Nice autumn leaves outside though!

You'd be chasing yourself around the house replacing all those pot lights as they blew out.

I'm moving to Kensington market. At least the rats are happy there.

Finally a home that is really worth a million dollars. It is even displayed for sale with real human every day items or decoration in a real household. Do not pay more than a million because it will take you years to sell it for the same. There are too many store fronts for rent/lease in every neighbourhood. The bubble is about to pop. If you want to live in this place for decades then buy. If not wait.

holy cow those interiors are hideous!
I think the basic architecture may be interesting but I can't even see it through the awful clash of pattern and colour..
