House of the Week: $6.3 million for a King City fortress with six bedrooms, seven parking spots and eight bathrooms

Neighbourhood: Clearview Heights, King City Price: $6,288,000 Size: 7,000 square feet Bedrooms: 6 Bathrooms: 8 Parking spots: 7 Real estate agents: Tara McCarthy and Niusha Walker


The place

A newly built six-bedroom, eight-bathroom mansion with a wine cellar, a finished basement and a fully insulated underground garage. Constructed by JMG Custom Homes, the place is a 10-minute walk from downtown King City and a short drive from the area’s many farms and stables. Realtors Tara McCarthy and Niusha Walker say it’s ideal for a multi-generational family with a taste for luxury.

The tour

One hundred feet of heated driveway (no shovelling required) give way to the glass and stone façade. The manicured front yard, meanwhile, is marked by oxer fencing—a nod to King City’s equestrian community.

The foyer features 22-foot ceilings, porcelain slab flooring and a glass-railed, LED-lit floating staircase.

Walk down the hallway to find a temperature-controlled wine cellar at one end of the living area.

The wine cellar is temperature controlled.

Here’s a closer look at that wine cellar.

In the living area: moulded ceilings, European three-turn windows and a gas fireplace.

Note the gold-trimmed feature wall in the living area.

This is the view from the kitchen. 

The giant island anchors the kitchen.

A closer look reveals high-gloss cabinetry, a porcelain backsplash and countertop, Miele appliances, and a wine fridge hidden within the island. That stainless steel stove hood is custom-clad in wainscoting, and all the lighting is sourced from Eurofase. 

The kitchen is full of Miele appliances.

The servery is attached to the open-concept space and comes with plenty of storage, a fridge and a dishwasher.

The pantry is ideal for dinner parties.

Here’s a view of the dining room. That’s the servery on the right.

The dining room has a view of the front yard.

The patio is its own living and dining space.

This outdoor lounge overlooks the pool.

This second patio, right next to the pool, has custom wood panelling, recessed lighting, a TV and a fireplace.

Don't forget the outdoor TV and gas fireplace.

And here’s the backyard at dusk. The pool is underlit and comes with a waterfall. 

This scene wouldn't be out of place in Miami.

Back inside and up the stairs: each of the five bedrooms on the second floor has an ensuite bathroom.

There are six bedrooms on the second floor.

Here’s one of them.

More TVs in the secondary bedrooms.

And here’s its ensuite.

This ensuite has marble all over.

The main suite is equipped with vaulted ceilings, wall-to-wall windows and another porcelain feature wall. 

The main suite is large and luxurious.

The view from the bed showcases the fireplace and the secret door to the first walk-in closet. 

Blink and you'll miss the hidden walk-in closet.

Sneaker wall, anyone?

The walk-in doubles as a sneaker gallery.

A soaker tub, corner windows and a massive rainfall shower with a built-in bench define the luxurious ensuite bathroom. 

The main ensuite bathroom has a soaker tub with a killer view.

And through the bathroom sits the other walk-in closet.

This is the second walk-in closet.

The basement, with its own entrance, is large enough to be a family unit. 

The finished basement is huge.

There’s a kitchenette down here as well as a bathroom, a bedroom, a gym, a lounge and, yes, another fireplace.

In the basement: a gym, a bar, a lounge and another fireplace.

Residents can admire the underground garage fishbowl-style from the kitchenette. The garage could be converted into more living space if future owners aren’t gearheads.

The underground garage has room for seven cars.
