$6 million Toronto mansion combines farmhouse features with modern aesthetics

Unique houses are the name of the game on the Toronto real estate market, sometimes resulting in over-the-top opulence. One of the city's newest listings, however, serves unique vibes by way of some quirky barn-like finishes.

For a hefty $5 million, 21 Killdeer Crescent in the Leaside area has five bedrooms and bathrooms, on a rare ravine-backed, cul-de-sac lot.

The exterior isn't exactly show-stopping, a combo of black and white colours with a double garage.

Four other bedrooms and matching bathrooms are a little bit small but tastefully decorated, with even more windows for natural light.

21 killdeer crescentWith annual property taxes clocking in at nearly $14,600, this home is definitely one of the most beautiful currently on sale in Toronto.
