House of the week: Bridle Path’s new $23-million mansion from HGTV host
King of the Castle
ADDRESS: 37 High Point Rd.
NEIGHBOURHOOD: Bridle Path–Sunnybrook–York Mills
AGENTS: Sharon Ann Bobkin, Forest Hill Real Estate Inc.
PRICE: $23 million
THE PLACE: Although it’s still a work-in-progress, this massive mansion in the Bridle Path makes neighbouring abodes look wee by comparison—a feat, considering its posh locale. The mega-mansion has been making passersby turn heads since construction started in 2006. After some finishing touches over the next three weeks, the property will be ready for habitation.
BRAGGING RIGHTS: The house is being built by ultra-high-end developer Paul Miklas, who’s better known as the host of HGTV’s Mansions. Plus, the home has often been the most expensive residence on the GTA market and the subject of major curiosity among the press (Metro and the Globe have both written about it).
BIG SELLING POINT: The tennis court is outfitted with underground pipes that allow it to become a skating rink in the winter.
POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The number of onlookers who drive by to marvel at the mansion’s sheer size. It may not house a celebrity, but the house is itself one.

• 30,000 square feet
• 4,500 square foot indoor pool

the pool is bigger than the majority of houses in Toronto
why are they always building such ugly, oldfashioned houses in this town? Anyone realized we are living in the 21st century?
Not everyone has the same taste as you Kerstin.
