House of the week: 17 & 23 Beechwood Avenue

This unique bungalow about a two minute drive from York Mills Station is on the market for $10 million, which seems insane until you realize it’s on almost an acre of land.23 beechwood avenue torontoThe home itself is stunning and very unique. The sitting room, living room, and family room are all open-concept. The floor-to-ceiling windows provide ample light and the tiered ceiling reminds me of the floors in Roy Thompson Hall.

A high-powered philanthropic family who’s going to host all their charity functions at their home. The current owners are major philanthropists and the place was designed for entertaining, so might as well host a wedding or two here.  

23 beechwood avenue torontoMove On If

You don’t need that much land. Nature is lovely, but you can buy a house and a cottage for $10 million — easy. So if you’re not fussed about having a huge property in the city, maybe invest in a getaway where you won’t be able to hear the sound of traffic.23 beechwood avenue toronto
