House of the Week: $6 million for a Bridle Path home with "cottage in the city" energy

Address: 1 Big Pine Road
Neighbourhood: Bridle Path-Sunnybrook-York Mills Agent: Barry Cohen, broker, and Tyler Cohen, sales representative, RE/MAX Realtron Barry Cohen Homes Inc., Brokerage Price: $6,380,000 Previously sold for: $2,500,000, in 2013

The place

A four-bed, four-bath detached located just off The Bridle Path. The house is nestled in a private cul-de-sac, on a 19,000 square foot lot, with a backyard playset, two patios and plenty of pine trees. On the inside, at 3,445 square feet across two storeys, the place gets a bunch of sunlight through oversized windows. The open-concept main floor and large basement rec room make this a great spot for a growing family.

The history

In 2004, a previous owner rebuilt the home, trying to create a “cottage in the city” feel. Natural materials like oak, slate and stone were used inside and out. In 2013, the current owner, who works in the travel industry, bought the place for $2.5 million. The owner is moving to a new house nearby.

The tour

There’s a 250-square-foot terrace outside the front entrance:
