Museum House Condo Toronto

What a $12.8 million Toronto condo looks like

Even if the exercise itself is unhealthy and somewhat depressing, every once in a while I'll indulge my curiosity as to how the other half lives. The last occasion for this was when photos of the interiors of private jets owned by arms dealers and heads of state surfaced on Gawker. But one doesn't need to go international to have a peak at the opulence afforded to the uber-rich.

Case in point: the condo project at 206 Bloor Street West, or as it's more commonly referred to, Museum House. When complete, the 19-storey condo will house just 26 half and full-floor units, not to mention the penthouse. And I thought the Candy Factory lofts were nice.

Some of the features of the units include:

  • Stone terraces with stainless steel flower boxes

  • A hotel-style porte-cochere vehicular drop-off for residents, visitors and limousines

  • 10-foot ceilings on half floors and 11-foot ceilings on full floors

  • Kitchen appliances by Miele and SubZero (including a wine cellar)

  • Master ensuite spas with heated floors

  • A gas fireplace in each half-floor residence and two for each full floor residence

  • Residences are pre-wired for Bang & Olufsen audio video

  • A built-in safe (because the mattress just won't accommodate all the cash)

  • Emergency standby power for the entire building in the event of blackouts (lest bandits pounce when the light is low)

And if you have $12.8 million to spend on the penthouse, you can also look forward to the following:

  • 5618 sq. ft. of space

  • A paltry three bedrooms

  • Four baths

  • A media room

  • A music room

  • Zen garden

  • A circular stairway connecting each floor

  • A sauna and steam room

  • And $4,773.30 in monthly maintenance fees!
