ADDRESS: 11 Beaumont Rd.
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Rosedale-Moore Park AGENT: Elise S. Kalles, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd., Brokerage
PRICE: $4,998,000 THE PLACE: A sprawling, ‘60s-style grotto with natural light pouring through floor-to-ceiling windows, a glass wall and a skylight hovering above the main stairwell. For summer reading, pick a tome off the two-storey bookshelf and head either to the private deck off the master suite or to the pool, which is nestled in amongst the giant oak trees of the Moore Park Ravine.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The exterior walls were built with stones from the original Canadian Parliament (they were collected after the famous 1916 fire). Plus, the house was designed by architect Eb Zeidler, whose other credits include the redesigned Gladstone Hotel, the Toronto Eaton Centre and the soon-to-come Trump International Hotel and Tower. BIG SELLING POINT: The 1.26 acres of land. Seriously, this is as much a playground as a residence. POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The house has had the same occupants for more than 40 years, so the neighbours may resent the new residents (then again, with all that space, what are the chances of seeing them?).

BY THE NUMBERS:

• $38,188 in taxes • 1.26 acres • 7 bedrooms • 4 bathrooms • 2.5 storeys • 6 parking spaces • 1 fireplace • 1 wine cellar • 1 pool • 1 ravine
