House of the Week: $2.5 million for a huge Casa Loma home designed by Eden Smith
The Place: A 1906 mansion near Casa Loma, designed by the famed architect Eden Smith.
Bragging Rights: Eden Smith’s name lends the house some design cachet. He’s responsible for many of the city’s best Arts and Crafts–style homes, including this Rosedale manse.
Big Selling Point: Though the master bedroom has its own bath, the third-floor washroom (and its claw-foot tub) looks like a better place to enjoy a private winter soak.
Possible Deal Breaker: If the new homeowners are looking for more subdued walls, they’ll have to get out the paint and primer (or hire a crew of people to do it for them).
By the Numbers:
• 5 bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 109 years old
• 3 storeys
• 3 parking spaces
• 1 famous architect
• 1 outdoor pool
