94 Cortleigh Blvd. Toronto

This private $9 million Toronto manor has been in the same family since the 1950s

"I think it’s fair to say that the property is unlike anything else in midtown Toronto and truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that needs to be seen and experienced to be fully appreciated," realtor Cailey Heaps told blogTO.

Built by architect A. D. Vidler in 1914, 94 Cortleigh Blvd. is a Tudor-style old manor that offers a unique design of grey natural stone and rustic red brick.

"This property is incredibly special for so many reasons but the acreage and size of the house itself are particularly impactful," noted Heaps.

The foyer. 

This property is one of the largest and most private lots in North Toronto.

The backyard with evergreen and maple trees. 

Sitting on 1.8 acres, there is nothing similar to this parcel of land in coveted Lytton Park.

The living room with an original wood-burning fireplace and plaster festoons above the doorways.

"To refer to a property’s 'acres' is not something we get to say very often at any price point, anywhere in the city – let alone in the heart of midtown."

A study. 

The home itself is set back from the street and offers timeless curb appeal, surrounded by mature trees and lush gardens.

It's been with the same family for over 65 years and as a result, they've managed to preserve the home's most impressive characteristics while adding some modern updates over the years.

All of it reminds us of something out of Downton Abbey.

The rec room in the basement. 

The basement, when originally built, was meant for storage so you'll find lots of dedicated space for food storage and even an original wine cellar.

The backyard. 

The backyard, which extends into the private ravine, has a stone terrace, a shaded patio, and an in-ground pool.

"We think of all the properties we have seen in our time and there really hasn't been anything like it. The land can't be recreated, which is what makes this property so special and unique," said Heaps.

The kitchen. 

"With that said, it is not just a big piece of land. It's a beautiful inlet, privately tucked away, sitting on a ravine with huge tableland. That's unheard of in this city and what's truly incredible is that it's within a few blocks of Yonge Street. "

The home is currently listed for $8,850,000 – nearly $1 million less than its May 2022 listing price of $9,800,000.
