House of the Week: $3.5 million for a country manor on 37 acres
ADDRESS: 14,650 7th Concession
NEIGHBOURHOOD: King City
AGENT: Carolyn Scime, Chestnut Park Realty, Brokerage and Diana Dunlap, Laceby Real Estate.
THE PLACE: The stone-and-stucco façade, soaring great hall, and thickly forested lot suggests a baronial manor from the Middle Ages, but the giant walk-in closets, fully loaded kitchen and enormous master bath (complete with copper tub) makes this the opposite of medieval living.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: A staggering 37-acre property with digs designed by architect Stephen Mccasey (a favourite of Frank Stronach).
BIG SELLING POINT: The great hall is a perfect spot to imagine your life as Henry VIII. The space has a two-storey beamed cathedral ceiling, wood burning fireplace and wrought iron detailing throughout.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: This place is only a 45-minute drive from Toronto, but if your idea of a good night is less about cocoa and more about cosmos around a bar table, this home may not be for you.
