House of the Week: $7.8 million for a souped-up stone manor in the Humber Valley
ADDRESS: 164 Edenbridge Drive
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Edenbridge–Humber Valley
AGENT: Michael Raso, Homelife/Realty One
THE PLACE: A four-bedroom stone manor on a wooded ravine lot (complete with a private creek) near Royal York Road.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Get lazy in style with your own personal elevator servicing all two and a half floors. And if you decide the sedentary life isn’t for you, the house is across the street from some top-notch walking trails in James Gardens and along the Humber River.
BIG SELLING POINT: This house is made for living large—the wine cellar holds over 1,250 bottles, the foyer boasts a fireplace (in case the hallway gets cold, we guess), the outdoor pool has an actual waterfall, and the laundry room has to be the largest we’ve ever seen (whole apartments could fit in that space).
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: If clean, contemporary light fixtures are your thing, you’ll have a lot electrical work to do—this place is crammed with elaborate chandeliers.
BY THE NUMBERS:
• 1,250-bottle wine cellar
• 7 parking spaces
• 6 bathrooms
• 5 bedrooms
• 1 outdoor pool
• 1 elevator
• Just under 0.5 acres of land
