House of the Week: $4.9 million for a Georgian-style family home with a manicured backyard and a pool
: ADDRESS 1 Glen Edyth Place
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Casa Loma
AGENT: , Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage Elise S. Kalles
THE PLACE: Surrounded by mini-mansions and a grove of black locust trees (apparently the largest in Toronto), this spacious family home has four massive bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bath.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Some swimming pools look as if they were just plopped down in the backyard, but expert landscaping makes this pool feel both logical and luxurious (the hot tub and lion’s-head fountain also help with the latter).
BIG SELLING POINT: Since it’s located at the end of a tiny cul-de-sac, you won’t have to worry about noisy traffic, and the kids can play in the front yard.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The slanted walls on the upper level could make decorating tricky, though thankfully the height of the ceiling means bumped heads shouldn’t be an issue. BY THE NUMBERS:
• $31,027.04 in property taxes (2011)
• 7 bathrooms
• 4 bedrooms
• 2 fireplaces
• 2-car garage
• 2 loft spaces
• 1 sauna
• 1 swimming pool
• 1 hot tub

Not sure what the back story is but this seems to be another classic example of a contractor driven renovation that’s big on ‘features’ but lacks overall design coherence and style. A wasted opportunity.
Must be the first house with a reasonable property tax bill. The foyer opens up to what ? I wish TL would show it – the straircase or this blank space that leads to the formal dining room with that door ? The wood pannelling in the kitchen is the same as the bathroom and the basement- yuk. Can someone tell me again, 4 bedroom and 7 bathrooms.. bizarre… TL should show us the 7 bathrooms so i can see if really these people shower or pooh in a different one each day.
7 photos of beds; 0 photos of bathrooms. Thanks, TL.
@Suzy-> go the RA’s site there are more pics of the house (57 in total)including your foyer. As for the other three bathrooms, two or three are likely powder rooms.
@Vlad-> either you need to see an optometrist or you have an uncommon definition of what a bathroom is.
The pool is lovely. The “formal” living room and the basement are hideous. The flooring in the basement needs to go. Seriously, why wouldn’t people with this much money decorate better? At the very least redo that floor and get some rental furniture in there before selling no?
Please stop with the stucco, it looks like crap
The price is to high for of what you get in this estate, eh !
totally overpriced for quality of finishings that even from 20 paces from a photo are obviously sub par for house listed at this price. Either the lot is truly huge, or something’s not computing.
