This unfinished mansion in Toronto for $9 million will be a bargain for someone

An unfinished Toronto mansion in need of some love and a load of cash is now up for sale.

The 17,000 square-foot "French chateau" at 76 North Drive in Etobicoke is for sale for nearly $9 million.

The image above was digitally enhanced by the sellers to show what the place might look like with some more investment.

The home is located on a wooded ravine lot with a lot of privacy.

The home was mostly built in 2010 but has fallen into disrepair, listing agent Angela Del Vecchio of Re/Max Professionals Inc. tells blogTO. 

"The architecture in and out is stunning, but the grand old dame has fallen into disrepair and needs the right buyers," Del Vecchio says.

The property is has a good deal of privacy and is in an area littered with multi-million dollar homes.  

Renderings show how the mansion could look with some landscaping. But in reality, the exterior needs some work.

The inside of the home looks brand new.

The home has been on the market a few times, and in keeping with Toronto real estate prices, the price has gone up by a couple of million. Back in 2017, the home was for sale for $6.9 million.

The foyer is bare, with marble flooring.

The home sits on a two-acre lot in the Humber Valley ravine overlooking a stream. It is surrounded by other multi-million dollar homes

Wood panelling is the main feature of the dining room.  

The large foyer opens up to an upper mezzanine and comes with shiny marble floors.

There are plenty of rooms on the main floor including a library/office, and there are wood or gas fireplaces in almost every room.

Wood also features heavily in the kitchen.  

The yew wood kitchen cabinets and a row of windows in the kitchen reflect a French style.

The primary bedroom is spacious with beautiful floors.

Upstairs the bedrooms are sparse — there are six bedrooms over two storeys.

The tub and shower look pretty opulent.   

The primary bathroom is spacious with a jet bathtub. This home comes with eight bathrooms in total.

The basement needs work but there is potential.

Downstairs, the walkout basement is unfinished, but with some furniture, this could be a nice rec room or games area.

The home also has a coach house with a theatre room below and an elevator. An unfinished area is provisioned for an underground garage. There is parking space for 10 vehicles.

With a little more cash perhaps the backyard could look like this photo illustration of the property. 

So if you are in the market for an expensive fixer-upper, this could be your place.

"This is a true bargain of potential for the right buyer," Del Vecchio says.
