House of the Week: $7 million for a 8,000-square-foot bungalow that has heated parking for 20
ADDRESS: 180 Fenyrose Crescent
NEIGHBOURHOOD: National Estate Golf Course, Vaughan
AGENT: Ralph Oppedisano, Royal LePage Maximum Realty
THE PLACE: Located on a sprawling estate, this 8,000-square-foot bungalow is the picture of suburban opulence.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: From the media room with projector screen and microsuede La-Z-Boys, to the gleaming marble tile, to the outdoor cabana grill, this home could be called many things—party central, cavernous, one-storey wonder—none of which would be “understated.”
BIG SELLING POINT: The 5,000-bottle-capacity cellar is a wino’s—ahem, oenophile’s—dream; it holds enough wine for you to drink a bottle a day for 13 years without replenishing the supply. Just enough time to make it to the top of the waiting list for a new liver.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The games room, with seven arcade machines and a pool table, will probably make your kids (and your house) the most popular ones in school. Better keep the fridge full of Sunny D.
BY THE NUMBERS:
$27,965 in taxes
8,000 square feet
5,000 spots for wine bottles
