It would be quaint if it wasn’t a mansion.31 alderbrook drive torontoRay 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.

Why it sold for what it did?

It’s a gorgeous home filled with luxurious perks, from a dog bath to a wine cellar.   31 alderbrook drive toronto

Was it worth it?

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.31 alderbrook drive toronto
