20 Cluny Drive

House of the Week: 20 Cluny Drive

This house at 20 Cluny Dr. has the potential to be an urban oasis with serious steeze. The Rosedale mansion is nearly fit for Beyonce, if you ask me. The bones of the place are stunning, and they have true class. But there are perfectly tacky touches, like the spangly chandeliers in the dining room. They're the giant hoop earrings of home decor, but they just look kind of great and retro anyway.

Aside from the surface glitziness, this home is also endowed with a practical edge. The basement is set up like an independent apartment, with its own kitchen and washroom, so owners can either rent it to outside tenants, or have family live down there. Overall, as other writers have pointed out, the footprint and feel of this house make it seem very much like a hotel. Whether that sounds good or bad to you, here's a long list of undeniable perks to this property, too:

GOOD FOR

This home is ideal for families who have either an elderly parent or codependent young adult child who need a place to stay that's close by. It would also work well for someone looking to make a little extra income by renting out the basement apartment to a poor university student (or someone). And, naturally, it's perfect for people who love having lovely outdoor cocktail parties like the ones in The Great Gatsby.

MOVE ON IF

Move on if you're a traveler, a wanderer. This is not the place for you, and none of this opulence will make you happy. Move on if you don't really appreciate wine cellars and inground pools overlooking ravines and robust Roman columns in your hallways. Just move on.
