House of the Week: $2.8 million for a Thornhill mansion backing onto Oakbank Pond
ADDRESS: 12 Erica Road
THE PLACE: Built by Dominic Meffe, founder of the southern Ontario hotel chain Monte Carlo Inn, this large family home is set in the exclusive Uplands Community of Thornhill.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: With soaring ceilings and a large open concept living area, the house has an art gallery aesthetic (there’s even a catwalk dividing the home’s two wings).
BIG SELLING POINT: A three-bedroom kid’s wing and proximity to some of the best schools in Thornhill make it ideal for raising a family.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Your home may have the chic feel of an art gallery, but tucked away in Thornhill, you’re a long way from the AGO and MOCCA.
