House of the Week: $8 million for an Etobicoke home with the vibe (and square footage) of a country estate
ADDRESS: 57 Edenbrook Hill
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Edenbridge-Humber Valley
AGENT: Bev Jones and Steve Broadhurst, Re/Max Professionals
THE PLACE: With its long, gated driveway and regal appointments, this five-bedroom manor on a 1.4-acre property in Etobicoke feels more like a country estate than a city pad.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The home is located just off the 11th green at the storied St. George’s Golf and Country Club, which has hosted five Canadian Opens. Buying here may not nab you a membership at the private club, but it will let you watch world-class golf from your bedroom.
BIG SELLING POINT: Once the sweltering summer hits, you’ll appreciate the back yard, with its stone patio, lush gardens and what is less a pool than a full saltwater lagoon—complete with waterfall.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: With approximately 4,599 square feet on the main floor and another 4,599 on the lower level, plus 1,719 upstairs, that’s a whole lot of space to dust and vacuum. Better hire a cleaning service.
BY THE NUMBERS:
•1 garage with a hydraulic car lift
•1 wine cellar
•1 outdoor pool with waterfall
