House of the Week: a $14-million, Versailles-like estate in the Bridle Path that’s up for auction
Address: 40 Park Lane Circle
Neighbourhood: Bridle Path-Sunnybrook-York Mills
Agent: Concierge Auctions in conjunction with Barry Cohen, Re/Max Realtron Realty Inc., Brokerage
Price: Depends. It’s due to be sold at auction on November 26. The last list price was $23,000,000, but the house is currently on MLS for $13,980,000.
The Place: A not-quite-finished, Louis XIV-inspired compound in the Bridle Path that will be sold at auction on November 26 (register to bid here).
Bragging Rights: If the Versailles of Vaughan didn’t impress you, this place may just do the trick. With indoor and outdoor pools, a tennis court, a grand ballroom, eight bedrooms, fourteen bathrooms and a theatre, this house personifies opulence.
Big Selling Point: A ton of room. The house is on 2.4 acres of land and has 27,000 square feet of indoor space.
Possible Deal Breaker: For all its grandeur, this Xanadu isn’t actually finished. Given that you’re going to have to endure some construction, you may prefer to start from scratch (and a similar-sized plot nearby is priced at a mere $8.75 million).
