Sale of the Week: The 25-acre King estate that sold for the price of a mid-sized Rosedale house
A 5,000-square-foot stone home on 25 acres of land.
The sellers bought the land eight years ago and tore down the existing structures, an old barn and a 1960s bungalow, before building this custom home and drive-in workshop over the last three years. They recently sold their businesses, and now they’re relocating.

The buyer is a young entrepreneur who was looking for a seasonal residence within an hour of Toronto. He intends to transform the property into a private retreat with an elaborate pool area. He may also seek out a tenant farmer for a portion of the land.
The sellers bought the land for relatively little money—about half of what it would cost today, according to the agent—so they were able to list the property at a competitive price. There was one offer, for $50,000 under asking.
