Why it sold for what it did?

The house is undeniably beautiful and luxurious but there's nothing really amazing about it. It's a standard mansion, if that's a thing. So I can understand why it took so long to sell, and why it went for below asking.  271 Forest Hill Toronto

Was it worth it?

With houses that are worth multi-millions, a couple million here and there isn't the end of the world. The home sits on a huge double size lot and is completely private thanks to the park it backs onto. So if nothing else the land the home sits on is worth it. 271 Forest Hill Toronto
