276 Forest Hill Road

House of the week: 276 Forest Hill Road

276 Forest Hill Road is a four bedroom, six bathroom estate in a private enclave near Spadina Road and Eglinton. First-time buyers might want to shy away from this exclusive listing -- it's going for $6,799,000.

The Art Deco architecture and striking facade is not so common in the Forest Hill neighbourhood, where streets are lined with custom built mansions and Tudor-style homes. This property has been on the market for awhile, seeing a significant price drop in recent months.

The interior at 100 feet wide is spacious with the main foyer resembling an art gallery and a curved staircase to the second level. The current style is a bit retro but could be modernized with a few personal touches to make it your own.

The landscaped backyard offers an urban oasis featuring lush green trees, an outdoor pool and cabanas. Thanks to a milder winter (we hope), barbecue season and backyard parties might arrive earlier this year.

GOOD FOR

A large family or a very wealthy couple. Like the upscale Bridle Path or Yorkville neighbourhoods, Forest Hill has its share of affluent home buyers belonging to the Toronto billionaire club. The almost $6.8 million estate attracts the elite and it's ideal for a homebody who enjoys weekends by the pool and summertime soirees.

MOVE ON IF

You need an ultra modern dwelling. The interior is a throw-back to the '90s with carpeted floors upstairs and banquette seating --charming as it is-- for an eat-in kitchen. Unless you love excessive tile flooring and checkerboard bathrooms, a few minor upgrades might be warranted.
