House of the Week: $8.8 million for a Caledon country home once owned by the inventor of Trivial Pursuit

ADDRESS: 18696 The Gore Road

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Caledon

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

PRICE: $8,800,000

THE PLACE: A 15,000-square-foot West Coast–inspired home with panoramic views across a 24-acre property in Caledon, a popular woodsy escape for the wealthy (members of the Eaton family, Norman Jewison, Shania Twain and Elton John are all rumoured to have country homes in the area).

BRAGGING RIGHTS: Past owners include celebrity author and clean-eating guru Tosca Reno and Trivial Pursuit inventor Chris Haney.

BIG SELLING POINT: The staggering beauty of the acreage, with its heritage log cabin, horse stables, swimming pool and pond, will make you feel like you’ve gone on a permanent vacation.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: This is not Toronto. However, in exchange for an hour’s commute, you’ll get 10 times the space you could ever wrangle within city limits.

BY THE NUMBERS: • $8, 800,000 • $20,496.88 in property taxes • 24-acre lot • 15,000 square feet of living space • 20-car private drive • 10 bathrooms • 6 bedrooms • 6 fireplaces • 5-car garage • 4-stable barn • 2-bedroom guest house • 1 outdoor swimming pool • 1 pond in backyard
