House of the Week: $4.9 million for a St. Clair West home with all the luxuries
The Place: A contemporary four-bedroom home near St. Clair West.
Bragging Rights: This place is made for all-season entertaining. The owner can spend summers in the swanky backyard pool (with outdoor kitchen). In winter, meanwhile, the basement movie theatre and 300-bottle wine cellar will keep everyone occupied.
Big Selling Point: This house has one of the best locations in the city: it’s right next to the subway, shopping and top schools like Bishop Strachan and Upper Canada College.
Possible Deal Breaker: Anyone in search of a home that conforms with the historical charm of the neighbourhood might want to look elsewhere.
