Sale of the Week: The $5.5-million mansion that proves more house doesn’t mean more offers
Address: 5 Berkindale Crescent
Neighbourhood: York Mills
Agent: Abdolreza Khadem, Forest Hill Real Estate Inc., Brokerage
The property: This newly built home, with five bedrooms and a grand total of nine bathrooms, is certainly not lacking in space. It also features a gym, a sauna, a media room and a wine cellar.
The history: The seller purchased several homes in the neighbourhood, tore them down and built large, luxurious houses. This property is just one of four that he owns in the area.
The fate: The home was purchased by a family who plans to leave it largely unchanged—except, presumably, to fill the space out with more furniture.
The sale: The property remained on the market for three months and received three offers during the time, all under asking. The seller accepted the third offer—$468,000 under asking.
By the numbers:
- 75-by-140-foot lot
- 9 bathrooms
- 5 bedrooms
- 4 parking spaces
- 1 wine cellar
- 1 elevator
The foyer is quite imposing.
And off of the foyer is the living room.
Speaking of imposing, check out this study.
Here’s the dining room.
The kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances, like dual Wolf ovens and gas range tops.
Just off of the kitchen is a sitting room.
The house receives a ton of natural light.
A lot of which comes from this domed skylight.
Going down? An elevator reaches all levels of the house.
The master bedroom has a gas fireplace.
And a massive, custom-built walk-in closet.
The new owners might want to consider blinds for the master bathroom.
Here’s another one of the bedrooms.
And its attached bathroom.
The basement has a huge media room.
There’s a wet bar, too.
And another bedroom with an attached bathroom.
Can’t forget about the wine cellar.
There’s a patio off of the kitchen.
Looks like a lawnmower is in order.
