House of the Week: $3.5 million for a Summerhill townhouse that used to be a church

ADDRESS: 12 MacPherson Avenue, Townhouse 5

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Yorkville

AGENTS: Christian Vermast, Paul Maranger and Fran Bennett, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, Brokerage

PRICE: $3,495,000

THE PLACE: One of just five units in the ultra-exclusive Macpherson Church loft conversion, this three-bedroom townhouse has luxurious touches like heated marble floors, cathedral ceilings and an elegant staircase that spirals through all three floors.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The sprawling back patio is perfect for entertaining large parties—as is the 5,400-bottle wine cellar.

BIG SELLING POINT: Wedged between Rosedale and Summerhill, this home is set in one of Toronto’s most beautiful and stately neighbourhoods. Think tree-lined streets, picturesque homes and trendy shops. The area also has some of the city’s top schools.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Don’t expect to find paraphernalia like pews or stained glass in this swanky conversion. Though the historical architecture of the century-old building is intact, the interior is all high-end finishes such as inlaid marble and herringbone hardwood.

BY THE NUMBERS: • $3,495,000 • $14,783.87 in property taxes (2012) • $2,130.10 per month in maintenance fees • 5,400-bottle wine cellar • 4,300 square feet • 4 bathrooms • 3 bedrooms • 3 storeys • 3 gas fireplaces • 2 skylights • 2 parking spots • 1 outdoor fireplace
