House of the week: 28 Valleyanna Drive
Let's kick off the New Year with some serious 1960s house porn near Bayview and Lawrence. This five bedroom, nine bathroom bungalow is one of Toronto's priciest listings at $16,800,000. Other mega-mansions in the area are even more expensive like this gold-plated estate asking $28,800,000 and a slightly cheaper French Chateau with a two-storey ballroom wanting $25,000,000.
The ranch-style bungalow sits on a massive lot and features many extras that one doesn't often see today. This house is a time capsule to the past with its Brady Bunch living room, heavy broadloom and classic vintage decor.
There's a cozy wood burning fireplace, wood panelling and floral wallpaper throughout. Downstairs, there's a retro indoor swimming pool, a reel-to-reel screening room to watch the classics, and a mini hair salon for a quick curl or beehive. The 12 car garage has surely seen its share of Eldorados, Oldsmobiles and Station Wagons in its day. Check out the photos and travel back in time.
Mad Men fans. Also, people wanting a bungalow in the city and a massive backyard. The landscaped property is huge, to say the least, with its gorgeous manicured gardens and a waterfall. One could get lost just walking the grounds. Bring some breadcrumbs.
MOVE ON IF
You want to renovate. It's a pricey pad that could use a 21st century facelift but gutting the place would be (extremely) costly. Perhaps if you've already spent $16.8 million, what's a few more dollars?
