House of the Week: $5.8 million for a Humber Valley villa with a golf course in the backyard
The Place: A sprawling five-bedroom, six-bathroom manor on the eighth hole of the prestigious St. George’s Golf and Country Club, which has hosted five Canadian Opens, most recently in 2010.
The History: Painstakingly built over six years in the Georgian style, this place isn’t lacking in luxury finishes, like oak floors (complete with radiant heating), walnut doors, two laundry rooms, a fridge in the master bedroom and oh, did we mention the elevator?
Big Selling Point: The saltwater swimming pool and hot tub are surrounded by glass partitions that can be opened in summer and closed in winter, making the spa-like space a year-round amenity.
Possible Deal Breaker: The home is far enough away from the golf course that most shots shouldn’t land anywhere near the property, but might we suggest a side business re-selling lost balls (or perhaps Coors Lights) to wayward golfers?
