House of the Week: $8.4 million for a Bridle Path mansion that’s the ultimate in modern luxury
ADDRESS: 65 Highland Crescent
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Bridle Path – Sunnybrook – York Mills
AGENT: Robert S. Greenberg and Andre S. Kutyan, Harvey Kalles Real Estate Ltd. Brokerage.
THE PLACE: This massive marble and glass home situated on an equally massive 107-by-358-foot tract of land provides a window into what it might be like to live in the not-too-distant future. With a Crestron automated interior, everything from the blinds to the temperature can be controlled with nothing more than the click of a button. Every extra imaginable is here—radiant floor heating, an eight-car garage, an in-house elevator, a dog-washing station in the mud room and even a saltwater aquarium to play spot the Finding Nemo character.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The two-storey waterfall. Right behind the front door, it not only looks impressive but also helps regulate humidity in the house.
BIG SELLING POINT: The house maintains both a sense of extravagance and a refined air of tasteful style. Kirkor Architect’s Mario Gumushdjian’s exquisite attention to detail shows everywhere—from the quartz countertops to the walnut flooring.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: This is not a house for anti-social introverts. Your friends, family and colleagues will all expect an endless string of invitations to help make the most of the main floor party space—equipped with both a striking blue bar and a handsome built-in bench.
