House of the week: 225 Forest Hill Road

This Toronto home designed by Richard Wengle is, according to the listing, Versaille inspired. I'm not sure I really see a resemblance but the house is definitely luxurious and a bit more ornate than your regular abode. 225 forest hill road toronto

The main level has the principal rooms – living room, dining room, family room and kitchen.

225 forest hill road torontoThe rooms are spacious and bright, but for $6 million and with almost 9,000-square-feet of living space I expect nothing less. 

225 forest hill road torontoThe interior design is classic and fairly monochromatic, adding a heightened sense of luxury to the spaces. 

225 forest hill road torontoThe kitchen is gorgeous with the dark wood European style cabinetry. There's also plenty of light thanks to the walk-out to the backyard. 

225 forest hill road torontoThe home boasts six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. 

225 forest hill road torontoOn the second floor is the master bedroom. It's probably the room that has the most "Versaille" influence to it with the chandeliers and carved fireplace. 

225 forest hill road torontoThe walk-in closets and the all white marble bathroom with a deep-soaker clawfoot tub add to the royal Parisian vibe. 

225 forest hill road torontoThe basement is filled with your mansion requisites such as a gym, wine cellar and steam room. The only thing this house doesn't have is a swimming pool.

225 forest hill road torontoThe backyard is kind of hard to appraise since it's covered in a blanket of snow but the listing assures it's professionally landscaped. 225 forest hill road toronto
