89 Forest Grove Drive Toronto

House of the Week: 89 Forest Grove Drive

Recently reduced in price to a palatable (right?) $3,788,000, this Bayview Village home is nestled among the East Don green. And just as long as you bring a little green of your own, you'll be privy to its private tennis court, imported Italian staircase, and 24kt gold-plated fixtures. Because polished chrome is for chumps, after all. And while this home isn't exactly walking distance to shops and restaurants, it does have room for seven cars — you can probably find a ride.

GOOD FOR:

89 Forest Grove Avenue


Standing naked by the window (without fear of reproach from neighbours). Exercising in the gym, the tennis court, by walking to the kitchen to the second bedroom ensuite. Good for owners of multiple vehicles and children. Good for those who love natural light and loathe climbing stairs to retire for the evening.

MOVE ON IF:

89 Forest Grove Drive


You worry about getting globs of toothpaste on your gold-plated faucet in your six-piece master ensuite. You are allergic to trees. You own pets that can't walk properly on polished floors. Your children have dreams of running a successful lemonade stand.
