Sold! Toronto home goes for $260k under asking
This home is like an old English inn or French country home transported into inner Toronto. It would be quaint if it wasn’t a mansion.Ray Murakami is the architect behind this house and it was decorated by decor celeb Sarah Richardson. It’s no surprise the home got some press, given its stunning architecture and design.
A few things have changed since 2013. A noticeable difference is the pool area, which is now like a hotel spa with an L-shaped pool, complete with waterfalls, a swim lane and a whirlpool.
While I preferred the staging back in 2013, the bones of the house are still good.
There’s definitely a modern-meets-country vibe going on throughout the house.
The main floor is bright and airy. I particularly like the kitchen with the exposed wood beams and the big fireplace.
The bedrooms look cozy and comfortable.
The lower level is stacked with the mansion necessities like the home theater, which looks like it could actually have a proper screening.
My favourite part of the house is the grounds. The landscaping is intricate and downright European. Probably a nightmare to maintain, but what are gardeners for, right?
It’s a gorgeous home filled with luxurious perks, from a dog bath to a wine cellar.
In 2013, it sold for just over $4.5 million. Considering they renovated parts of it and addition of some new amenities, I’d say it sold for a reasonable price six years later.
