Address: 214 Rosemary Road Neighbourhood: Forest Hill South Agent: Faithe Sversky, Forest Hill Real Estate Price: $3,495,000

The Place: A six-bedroom, six-washroom family home located between Forest Hill Public School, Forest Hill Collegiate and Cedarvale Ravine.

Bragging Rights: The architectural details—like arched windows, Douglas fir wood-beam ceilings, white walls and wide-plank reclaimed beechwood floors—bring a touch of Californian cool to the big smoke. Recreate SNL’s The Californians in your own living room. “I said the 400, Stewart!”

Big Selling Point: The massive grotto-like pool in the backyard comes complete with its own waterfall for those sticky, humid summer days when air conditioning just isn’t enough. There’s even a cabana with a two-piece bathroom, so the owner will never need to yell at anyone to dry off before entering the house.

Possible Deal Breaker: With great pool comes great responsibility: all the kids’ friends will want to come over, and that means the owner will need a stocked fridge. Just remember, hip teens eschew purple stuff and go straight for Sunny D.

By the Numbers:

• $3,495,000 • $17,775.17 in taxes (2014) • 6 bedrooms • 6 washrooms • 4 parking spaces • 2 fireplaces • 1 outdoor pool
