House of the week: 421 The Kingsway

421 The Kingsway is a contemporary glass mansion, with six bathrooms, four bedrooms, three fireplaces, two terraces and one backyard fire pit, all yours for $4,980,000. Built in 2002 and designed by Toronto-based Altius Architecture, the modern multi-level abode is a rare find tucked away in the Edenbridge-Humber Valley neighbourhood near The Kingsway and Islington Avenue.

The house is literally overflowing with bespoke features--almost too many to list--and a backyard oasis overlooking a private golf course. Not too shabby.

The house features a range of purposeful and surprising design--a loud purple entrance way, dining room with exposed metal and wood beam ceilings, concrete floors, Douglas Fir trim and a second floor glass catwalk to complete this love nest. There's multiple fireplaces, heated floors, an upper and lower washer and dryer and two kitchens, because one is never enough. Obviously.

While the interior is stunning, the backyard upstages the rest of the home with its 0.65-plus acre playground and a view of the fourth green. With a pool and multiple outdoor spaces, it would be tempting to spend all day outdoors. Just be mindful of flying golf balls and onlookers. Check out the photos.

GOOD FOR

Movie shoots. This residence offers star power with several movies and commercials filmed inside the home and around the property. One such flick is the TV movie, The House Next Door, (ironic since the mcmansion is far from the home next door) and stars '90s heartthrob Mark-Paul Gosselaar (a.k.a Zack Morris). A major selling feature if you are/were a Saved by the Bell fan.

MOVE ON IF

The high taxes makes you want to jump off the deep end of that exquisite swimming pool. It's not surprising the annual taxes and land transfer fees are hefty, given the lot size of the $5 million estate. The house has been on the market for awhile, originally listed for $6,495,000 with multiple price reductions since then. Perhaps the owners are willing to negotiate and the new buyer will score a (slight) discount.
