House of the Week: $6.3 million for a King City fortress with six bedrooms, seven parking spots and eight bathrooms
The 7,000-square-foot home also has a heated driveway, 22-foot ceilings, a floating staircase and a glowing pool
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.
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.
This reverse angle shows off the picture-frame archway leading to the open-concept dining area and kitchen.
Walk down the hallway to find a temperature-controlled wine cellar at one end of the living area.
Here’s a closer look at that wine cellar.
In the living area: moulded ceilings, European three-turn windows and a gas fireplace.
This is the view from 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 servery is attached to the open-concept space and comes with plenty of storage, a fridge and a dishwasher.
Here’s a view of the dining room. That’s the servery on the right.
The patio is its own living and dining space.
This second patio, right next to the pool, has custom wood panelling, recessed lighting, a TV and a fireplace.
And here’s the backyard at dusk. The pool is underlit and comes with a waterfall.
Back inside and up the stairs: each of the five bedrooms on the second floor has an ensuite bathroom.
Here’s one of them.
And here’s its ensuite.
The main suite is equipped with vaulted ceilings, wall-to-wall windows and another porcelain feature wall.
The view from the bed showcases the fireplace and the secret door to the first walk-in closet.
Sneaker wall, anyone?
A soaker tub, corner windows and a massive rainfall shower with a built-in bench define the luxurious ensuite bathroom.
And through the bathroom sits the other walk-in closet.
The basement, with its own entrance, is large enough to be a family unit.
There’s a kitchenette down here as well as a bathroom, a bedroom, a gym, a lounge and, yes, 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.
