Huge Toronto mansion costs almost seven times more than the last purchase price

Toronto's real estate market is known for its mind-numbing home prices, but a palatial mansion that just went up for sale shows a side of the market that is truly incomprehensible to most.

Introducing 52 Fifeshire Road in the St. Andrew-Windfields neighbourhood near the ultra-exclusive Bridle Path, a two-storey, six-bedroom and nine-bathroom beast of a mansion.

fifeshireListed at a tear-inducing $13,888,000, the home costs a pretty penny more than the last time this property sold was in 2010 at a shocking $2 million.

Yes, just $2 million. That is almost a 700 per cent increase in just over 12 years.

For comparison, the average ten-year price increase for a single-family home in Toronto was roughly 125 per cent, but in this market, no price increase is shocking anymore. 

Despite its hefty price tag, there is no doubt that 52 Fifeshire, which backs onto a ravine in Saint Andrews Park, is an absolutely beautiful gem of a property.

Check out the realtor's video for this spot, oddly featuring a ballerina prancing around the mansion, looking for potential buyers.

The island or breakfast buffet is enormous and can easily fit an army with space for more, finished with gold hardware stools.

And the house also comes with a private chef's kitchen perfect for soirees and extravagant parties.

The most impressive aspect of this bedroom is the "Chanel"-inspired dressing room, which will make you feel like a Kardashian as you showcase your clothes - not just store them.

It has specialty glass-jewelry cases to display your many watches, diamonds and earrings.

Twirling into the basement, you'll see a full-size laundry room with two washers and dries and a folding table.

The sink in the suite is extra convenient for rinsing out pesky stains. 52-fifeshire-roadAdjacent to the laundry suite is a theatre, game room, fitness studio and even a luxurious champagne cellar. Finished with golden pegs, you'll be able to store enough bottles of bubbly to have 20 champagne baths. Or enough for one gigantic New Year's party.52-fifeshire-roadBoutique fitness studio vibes are ample in the home gym, with floor-to-ceiling mirrors so you can check yourself out flexing those killer biceps.

With a total of six parking spots and annual property taxes of $40,000, this mansion is sure to attract only the most exclusive of buyers.
