House of the week: $8.9 million for the Rolling Stones’ Erindale crash pad

House of the week: $8.9 million for the Rolling Stones' Erindale crash pad

PLAY WITH FIRE

ADDRESS: 2350 Doulton Drive NEIGHBOURHOOD: Erindale, Mississauga AGENT: Candice Leigh Chilton and Michael P.J. Parsons, RE/MAX Realty Enterprises Inc. PRICE: $8.9 million THE PLACE: Built as a tribute to Frank Lloyd Wright, this jagged house is the dream hideout for introverted musicians. Not only are there six fireplaces (those vertical pillars are chimneys) to strum beside, there are nine “walkouts” (one for each of the five bedrooms) for direct access to natural inspiration. BRAGGING RIGHTS: We’re not kidding about the musicians: the Rolling Stones were so charmed by the musical allure of this house that they were willing to pay a whooping $40,000 a week to stay here during SARS-stock. BIG SELLING POINT: The Acoustic Room has 20-foot-high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and octagonal ceiling treatment with rosewood panels. POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Buying a house with an excess of erect chimneys makes you a classic case for Freudian psychoanalysis.

POSH BY THE NUMBERS: • 10,000 square feet (finished space) • 9 walkouts • 6 fireplaces • 5 bedrooms • 5 bathrooms • 4.99 acres • 1 indoor pool • 1 wine cellar
