The place

A modern, custom-built mansion on the Bridle Path.

The history

The home was designed and built by TAS about 15 years ago, making it one of the newer residences in the neighbourhood. The property has been used to host many events, including an NBA All-Star party attended by Drake and LeBron James, during which it was known as the “House of Tings.” The current owners bought the place a few years ago and want to rent it out as a residence. They’ve recently updated the bathrooms, paint and flooring. They also added a commercial exhaust to the kitchen and frosted glass walls to prevent food smells from wafting into other parts of the home. The home was originally listed in July for $55,000 per month, but was re-listed earlier this month for $6,000 less.

The living area has a two-sided fireplace:

Major perks

The bedrooms and living areas are in separate wings, so tenants can host large parties without worrying about guests wandering into private areas.

Possible deal breaker

Practically every room in the house is lined with large windows. And you know what they say about people who live in glass houses.
