The place

Located on the outskirts of Toronto, an opulent new build with five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a bevy of luxurious features, including a home theatre and sauna.

The history

The previous owner, a carpenter for a prominent interior design firm, completely rebuilt this home from the ground up. There are luxe finishes throughout, like custom-panelled walnut walls and coffered ceilings.

The foyer has porcelain floors:

Along with a floating walnut shelf:

In the living room, there’s white oak flooring, pot lights and an ethanol fireplace in a marble enclosure:

Here’s a good look at the 1o-foot ceilings on the main level:

Lots of woodwork in the dining room:

That divider wall has pretty walnut panels, but removing it could really open up the space:

This room has a remote-controlled gas fireplace and built-in surround sound speakers:

The kitchen is nearby:

The master bedroom has oak flooring and a coffered ceiling:

Oh, there’s also a fireplace:

The six-piece ensuite bathroom has heated marble floors and an egg-shaped stone resin tub:

The other upstairs bedrooms are kid friendly. Lots of play space here:

A fun bunkbed:

And something a little cutesier:

The five-piece main bathroom also has heated floors and a double vanity sink:

Downstairs, there’s a wine cellar:

And a nice-sized rec room:

Which doubles as a home theatre:

A peek at the sauna:

The home gym has a heated rubber floor:

Here’s the downstairs bedroom:

There’s a Caesarstone sink in the downstairs bathroom:

And finally, the music room, which is perfect for an aspiring rockstar:

Big selling point

This place is basically its own city, with a home gym, sound-proofed music room and a wine cellar. It also has a lovely main floor, with warm wood finishes that complement all of its modern features.

Possible deal-breaker

Potential buyers who work downtown would have to steel themselves for the maddening morning commutes on the Gardiner. The house does have three parking spots, though, which should provide a bit of solace.
