House of the Week: $5.7 million for a neighbour-free home on two acres in Forest Hill
ADDRESS: 1 Peregrine Way
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Forest Hill South
AGENT: Elise Kalles, Harvey Kalles Real Estate
THE PLACE: Tucked away at the end of a brick road, this Forest Hill house is the picture of solitude. Even the neighbours are silent, as the massive Cedarvale Ravine abuts the property. The façade and extensive gardens may look like an English manor, but the interior is all-American luxury: expansive foyer with an inlaid marble centrepiece, indoor spa, and acoustically isolated screening room with a 120-inch projector screen.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: 1 Peregrine was built by Peter Kellner, the legendary Toronto renovator who, over his four decades in the business, has been featured in Canadian House and Home and been approved by Peter and Melanie Munk.
BIG SELLING POINT: The indoor pool offers a great place to work on any weight loss–related New Year’s resolutions.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Only three bedrooms in Forest Hill is tantamount to only six bedrooms in Muskoka. If there were neighbours, what would they think?
BY THE NUMBERS:
$36,997.75 in taxes
120-inch projector screen
6 parking spaces
1.99 acres of land
