A six-bedroom, eight-bathroom fortress in Mimico with six parking spots and a buffet of amenities for hosting. The home is within walking distance of the Mimico GO station and half a dozen parks. It’s also a 30-minute bike ride from downtown and a quick drive from the Gardiner and Lake Shore Boulevard.
The house was built from scratch in 2016. The current owners purchased it in June 2022, when the market was in a lull, for $3.175 million. Now they’re relocating to New York for a job opportunity and putting the place on the market.
The façade is brick and stone, with a double garage and a four-car driveway.
Inside, the foyer leads to the dining room and the main living space.
This opposite angle reveals the ornate glass and wrought iron door, marble tiling, and cathedral ceilings.
The dining room has hardwood floors, a swinging door to the kitchen and four large windows with a view of the neighbourhood.
Here’s the kitchen, equipped with granite counters, a Wolf gas stove, a Sub-Zero fridge, a double oven, custom cabinets and a pot filler.
Another angle of the kitchen highlights the French-door walkout to the pool.
The living room is adjacent to the kitchen.
There’s also this office and powder room on the main floor.
And here’s the main bedroom, with vaulted ceilings and remote-controlled blinds.
It comes with an ensuite bathroom and matching walk-in closets.
Now for the ensuite, which has ceramic tiling, a multi-head glass shower, heated floors and a jet tub.
Taking a quick detour outside, the huge backyard has a separate entrance to the basement, a saltwater pool with patio surround and a full kitchen with plenty of space to dine alfresco.
Here’s the kitchen set-up. It even has a wine fridge.
Turn around and you’re in the dining area. That’s a wood-burning fireplace in the background.
Don’t forget the pool house, which comes with a wine fridge and a powder room.
Back inside and up the stairs, there’s a secondary bedroom with a balcony overlooking the pool.
This bedroom has an ensuite too.
But the party really starts in the basement.
Beyond the ping-pong table is another wood-burning fireplace and a quirky bar.
And how about a third kitchen?
There’s also a gym down here.
These two bedrooms are tucked away around the corner.
The theatre is the basement’s centrepiece.
It has a popcorn machine and an old-school Pac-Man arcade game.
And any cash leftover from the home’s purchase can be stashed in the safe room.
