House of the week: 6 The Bridle Path

This isn’t so much a house as it is an estate. Located on the Bridle Path it's obviously an impressive home but it's also, obviously, very very expensive.

6 the bridle path toronto

The house is listed for over $13 million to be exact but it was only 4 months ago that this place was on the market for over $14 million ... guess the luxury housing market really is taking a turn.  

6 the bridle path torontoThe home sits behind the cast-iron bars of the gate, keeping out any riff-raff. The lawn and surrounding shrubbery are impeccably manicured and the house is Georgian-style.

6 the bridle path torontoIt looks like a place Meghan Markle and Prince Harry might live in if they were to have a home in Toronto.

6 the bridle path torontoWhen you walk into the home you enter the foyer that opens into the great hall. It reminds me of a hotel lobby and a shopping mall at the same time. I think it’s the staircase.

6 the bridle path torontoThe main floor has the library, family room, dining room, kitchen, living room, a breakfast nook and a butler's pantry.

6 the bridle path torontoThe interior is modern, spacious and bright. Each room flows easily from one to another and the kitchen is complete with state of the art appliances.

6 the bridle path torontoUpstairs there are five bedrooms, all with their own walk-in closets and ensuite bathrooms.

6 the bridle path torontoThe master bedroom is gigantic. It has his and hers walk-in closets and a sitting room, which opens up onto a balcony.

6 the bridle path torontoThe ensuite bathroom has spa-like features and oddly enough a fireplace.

6 the bridle path torontoThe finished basement is kitted out with a home theatre, an open concept rec room and billiard room with a wet bar off to the side.

6 the bridle path torontoThere’s also a wine cellar, nanny suite and in-law suite. Guess the Prince Charles and Camilla could stay down there if they visit?

6 the bridle path torontoAnd if you thought the inside was breathtaking the backyard is really a sight to behold. The sprawling lawn and swimming pool complete with a cabana and change rooms means this place is perfect for summer.

6 the bridle path torontoThere’s also a jungle gym and sports court for those who want to participate in non-aquatic activities.6 the bridle path toronto

6 the bridle path torontoGood For

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Who else but royalty needs a butler pantry? I could see it being a nice summer home for them. There’s enough room to house their staff and there are even some rooms leftover for a kid or two. Anyone who has their email feel free to pass along this listing.

6 the bridle path torontoMove On If

You don’t want your house to look like a hotel. While the interior is contemporary and by no means unattractive, I just can’t help but feel that the person who designs the Hilton hotels also had a hand in this house’s creation.
