The indoor pool with water features and the gym with performance-designed flooring.

Not only is there more space than some office buildings but according to the listing it's built with some unique materials such as Indiana limestone, a slate roof and Palladian windows.

The family room with an Indiana limestone fireplace. 

Intricate and ornate details are featured throughout the home. From the wrought-iron banisters to the pendant crystal chandeliers and coffered ceilings, everything is clearly well crafted.

The kitchen boasts all the appliances a chef could need including a large three-sided island, two gas ovens, two grillers, a plate warming unit, water filtration system, and more! 

As for rooms the principal ones are all spacious and sun filled and there's more of them than anyone would know what to do with.

The library with wood panelled walls. 

There's a two-storey library with a spiral staircase going to an upper loft that almost makes the library at Trinity College look small.

The entertainment lounge with a wet bar and wine cellar. 

There's also an orchestral-designed theatre, an indoor pool, a gym, a New York inspired entertainment lounge with a temperature controlled 250-bottle wine cellar.

The primary bedroom. 

And yet there are only three bedrooms... well four if you count the one in the basement.

The dressing area off the primary bedroom. 

That being said one of the closets – or "dressing areas" – is 1,100 square feet, which is bigger than many Toronto apartments.

The foyer beneath the domed ceiling. 

And if you were wondering about tech and gadgets, well there's loads of that too!

The home comes with a one-touch security system, HEPA filters, one-touch music streaming in every room, UV lamp particulate removing systems, in-floor heating and the list goes on.
