ADDRESSS: 14 Cluny Drive
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Rosedale–Moore Park
AGENT: Dorothy Mason and Sandra Mason-Grossi, Royal LePage Your Community Realty, Brokerage
THE PLACE: This Rosedale mansion is equal parts old-world villa (with its stone, wood and iron accents) and modern spa (with its marble floors, a deep soaker tub in the master bedroom and indoor pool).
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The downstairs pool features a soothing waterfall, a skylight and yoga space.
BIG SELLING POINT: The backyard has the rugged beauty of a Group of Seven painting (that is, with the luxury additions of a terraced garden, stone patio and koi pond).
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: If you don’t respect wood as much as, say, Larry David does, then the wood moulding throughout the home may turn you off.

• 10,000 square feet
• 9 bathrooms
