House of the Week: $6 million for a Casa Loma home with a groovy backyard gazebo

House of the Week: $6 million for a Casa Loma home with a groovy backyard gazebo

Address: 59 Warren Road
Neighbourhood: Casa Loma Agent: Leeanne Weld and George Chisholm, Johnston & Daniel, a division of Royal LePage Real Estate Services Ltd., Brokerage Price: $5,788,000 Previously sold for: $2,500,000, in 2010

The place

A five-bed, six-bath detached, located just a 15-minute walk from the historic Casa Loma castle. Out front, the place has a secluded front courtyard and charming flagstone walkways. On the inside, at 4,700-square-feet across three-storeys, it’s got an eclectic mix of features, both old and new, including original wood-burning fireplaces and reclaimed barnwood floors. 

The history

This place was built back in 1926. The current owners (a couple of lawyers) bought it in 2010, for $2.5 million. They spent the next year doing renovations, including rebuilding the kitchen and installing new flooring. Warm interior colours were used during the redesign to give the place a family-friendly vibe. The owners are planning to downsize because all of their children have moved out of the house.

The tour

In the foyer, there’s crown moulding, wainscotting and a wood-burning fireplace. The sellers imported that Obermeier piano from Berlin. Sometimes, they would hire pianists to play it during receptions (it’s not for sale, though):
