House of the week: 249 Old Yonge Street
If this were my house, I would become a bona fide hermit. One of the washrooms alone looks like it's about the size of all of my past apartments combined. There's a full-on gym, none of these treadmill-in-a-basement-room afterthought situations. There's a man cave to keep man-pets and there's a fully outfitted workshop in the basement. Each room appears to have an ensuite bath. I would turn this
house castle into a glorious commune, the likes of which hasn't been seen since the '60s. (Note: it is this very impulse that ensures I will never be able to afford such a home).
Address: 249 Old Yonge St.

Those giant families with 14+ kids and reality TV shows about it. Communes...but for wealthy people? Is that a thing? Rich DIY types (there's a workshop in the basement).
MOVE ON IF
You insist on a more advanced wine cellar â I mean, come on. More seriously, Old Yonge Street ain't the most accessible place transit-wise, but who am I kidding? If you've got this much cash, you're probably driving.
