House of the Week: $4 million for a sprawling family home in Rosedale

House of the Week: 18 McKenzie Avenue

Address: 18 McKenzie Avenue
Neighbourhood: Rosedale-Moore Park
Agent: Jacqueline A. Yaffe, Forest Hill Real Estate Inc., Brokerage
Price: $3,950,000

The Place: A sprawling five-bedroom family home on a tree-lined street in Rosedale, just north of Castle Frank Station.

Bragging Rights: Featured back in 2010 as one of our Great Spaces, this house has a little bit of a reputation. The current owners are known for their “raucous parties.”

Big Selling Point: Natural light floods the main-floor rooms through a private, inner courtyard.

Possible Deal Breaker: At about 7000 square feet, it’s a large place. The new owner is going to need some big furniture—or, at least, a lot of normal-sized furniture—to fill all the spacious rooms.

By The Numbers:

• $3,950,000
• $24,960.75 in property taxes (2013)
• 7,000 square feet, give or take
• 6 parking spots
• 6 bathrooms
• 5 bedrooms
• 5 fireplaces
• 3 storeys
• 1 private courtyard
• 1 balcony
