149 Lytton Boulevard Toronto

Toronto home just sold for $1.5 million under initial asking price

The effects of Toronto's cooling housing market are having a marked effect on luxury real estate in the city, with properties now regularly changing hands for far less than the listed price.

The latest example is 149 Lytton Boulevard.

The home was originally listed for $7,395,000 in June, but the price was dropped to $6,795,000 in September and $6,499,000 in October after no buyer materialized.

The home finally sold on November 20 for $5,900,000, or $1,495,000 under the initial asking price.

The exquisite home was custom designed for the current owner by Toronto-based architectural firm Lorne Rose. It offers functional design and premium finishes within a rare, ravine-like setting.
