House of the Week: $14 million for a North York mansion with a pool, tennis court and seven-car garage
An uptown manse with a tennis court and saltwater pool.
Here’s the foyer:
The dining room:
The library, not to be confused with the office, which is on the opposite end of the house:
The family room (there’s a separate living room):
There’s a mini-gym on the first floor, too:
And an elevator:
There’s a wine cellar on the lower level:
As well as a billiards room with a bar:
There’s a den, too (if the TV looks a little small, it’s because there’s a home theatre in the next room):
Out back, there’s a pool and patio fit for high-class get-togethers:
Plus a tennis court and basketball hoop:
The house was built about two decades ago—with the exception of the backyard; the outdoor kitchen and pizza oven were completed last year.
Big selling point
This place is built for entertaining: it has a home theatre, a wet bar, a billiard room and a cigar room.
Possible deal breaker
The property is very secluded, with large trees blocking views on all four sides, so it’s probably not the ideal home for anyone who likes to chit-chat with neighbours. Anyone who values privacy would have a hard time doing better, though.
