This $10 million mansion in Toronto comes with an indoor pool and retro interior design
There are a lot of really nice houses in Forest Hill in Toronto but something about this one just hits different.
The home, located at 39 Burton Road, sits on 17,000 square-feet of land and has this odd combo of modern, yet retro interiors.
For example, the teak entry hall is a throw back to the peak of mid-century design but somehow doesn't feel dated.
That being said, the brown and yellow shag carpeting in one of the bedrooms definitely does. It gives me flashbacks to my grandparent's home that hasn't been renovated since the 70's.
The house is listed for $9,788,000 and has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
There's also tons of natural light thanks to the expansive windows, French doors and skylights featured throughout.
The main rooms are spacious and quirky with interesting choices of wallpaper or wood panelling to give it that extra oomph of character.
You can totally see what the realtor meant by the "contemporary home defined by its eclectic style."
The kitchen is large but doesn't really live up to the almost $10 million price tag. It has outdated tile, cabinetry and the appliances aren't what you'd expect in a home like this. And while I'm sure it's all very functional, I was expecting something a bit more impressive.
One thing that is impressive though is the spa.
There's a hot tub, indoor pool and an al fresco dining area that creates a posh four-season recreational area.
And if that wasn't enough spa-like features the primary bedroom has a sauna in the bathroom! How fun is that?
This house definitely isn't most people's style or taste but for those who are into it there's a lot to love and even if you're not in love with the interiors you gotta admit an indoor pool would be pretty awesome.
