House of the week: glassed-in glory on the Bridle Path for $12.9M
DON’T THROW STONES
ADDRESS: 83 The Bridle Path
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Bridle Path–Sunnybrook–York Mills
AGENT: Steven Maislin, Cooper and Company
PRICE: $12.9 million
THE PLACE: Recently featured on MTV Teen Cribs, the modernist glass house is every adolescent boy’s dream. Massive windows encase an indoor basketball court and games area, making it easy to see what’s going on.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: Pontiac’s commercial for the G6 was filmed here, as was Bruce Willis’s Red and Donnie Wahlberg’s Runaway. TIFF followers should remember that George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Jason Bateman, Robert Duvall and Mena Suvari have partied at the mansion.
BIG SELLING POINT: The house is hangover friendly: with the push of a button, shades cover the many windows.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The basketball court converts into a home theatre, but installing the seats means loads of manual labour.
