Sale of the Week: The $3.8-million coach house that shows the allure of a unique property

Listed At
$3,750,000
Sold For
$3,810,000

Address: 1 Chestnut Park Road

Neighbourhood: Rosedale

Agent: Kate Ryley, Blue Elephant Realty


The property: One of four units in a restored Rosedale mansion. This renovated coach house—which is physically separate from the main building, but still part of the same condo corporation—has four private terraces, two master bedrooms and a private elevator.


The history: The selling agent says her client bought the coach house in 2013 because he couldn’t turn down such a unique property. The space ended up being too large for just himself.


The fate: The buyers have the opposite problem: they’re a couple with grown children looking to downsize to a smaller property in the neighbourhood. They fell in love with the coach house because it felt like the perfect compromise between a house and a condo.


The sale: The buyers made a bully offer for $60,000 over asking, which the seller accepted.

  • $3,810,000
