92 Manitou Drive

This mansion near Toronto with a glass tube elevator sold for nearly $900K under asking

Luxurious mansions across Toronto have slashed their prices as home sales in the region tumble. Such is the case with a cube-like King City abode, which just sold for close to $900,000 under asking.

Located at 92 Manitou Drive, the custom home was, according to the listing, imagined by an award-winning architectural firm.

The exterior is composed of a series of cube-like structures and expansive windows, making for a unique, modern mansion.

The home has been on the market since February, with an unwavering asking price of $9,198,000. It finally sold nine months later for $8,300,000.

Despite its colossal size - it offers more than 7,400 square feet of living space - the home offers peace and privacy.92 Manitou DriveHidden behind a set of gates and situated at the end of a long driveway, the home sits on two acres of ravine-like property and backs onto the Humber River.
