(Image: Jordan Dubins)
Listed At
$5,988,000
Sold For
$5,520,000

Address: 5 Berkindale Crescent

Neighbourhood: York Mills

Agent: Abdolreza Khadem, Forest Hill Real Estate Inc., Brokerage


The property: This newly built home, with five bedrooms and a grand total of nine bathrooms, is certainly not lacking in space. It also features a gym, a sauna, a media room and a wine cellar.


The history: The seller purchased several homes in the neighbourhood, tore them down and built large, luxurious houses. This property is just one of four that he owns in the area.


The fate: The home was purchased by a family who plans to leave it largely unchanged—except, presumably, to fill the space out with more furniture.


The sale: The property remained on the market for three months and received three offers during the time, all under asking. The seller accepted the third offer—$468,000 under asking.


By the numbers:

  • $5,520,000
  • 75-by-140-foot lot
  • 9 bathrooms
  • 5 bedrooms
  • 4 parking spaces
  • 1 wine cellar
  • 1 elevator

The house receives a ton of natural light.

A lot of which comes from this domed skylight.

The new owners might want to consider blinds for the master bathroom.
