This $8 million Toronto mansion has a backyard oasis on a ravine

As condos continue to pop up in Toronto, it has become more difficult to find a bit of nature in the city.

For those with extra cash, a property recently listed on the market comes with its own bit of nature — a backyard oasis on the edge of a ravine.17 the kingsway toronto

The mansion at 17 The Kingsway in Etobicoke doesn't come cheap — it's priced at nearly $8 million. But there is a lot of home and backyard for that price.

The approximately 3,844 square foot home comes with four bedrooms (plus two in the basement).

There are plenty of spaces to sit and socialize in this home.

The home is entered through a circular drive past gardens created by Landscape Plus, according to listing agents Joe and Leslie Battle of Battle Real Estate Team / Royal LePage.

Upon entering the home, the interior looks formal and old-world with wood panelling and two gothic-style windows framing the door.

The backyard has views of the Humber Ravine.

Perched on the Humber Ravine, the best feature of this home is the fantastic backyard views. The ravine is a tangle of vegetation, which looks to be far from the city.

There is an outdoor kitchen and a 12-foot long fire pit.

The backyard is totally enclosed with an iron gate. In addition to a patio with an outdoor kitchen, the space has a 12-foot-long built-in fire pit.

It would certainly be a great place for a post-lockdown gathering if it fits your budget.
