The place

A new-ish build in High Park, near the Junction’s increasingly trendy Dundas Street strip.

The history

The sellers knocked down a smaller family home and built this mini-mansion in its place. The new home was completed in 2018.

The living area has doors to the backyard:

Big selling point

The downstairs bar area comes with two wine fridges (with a total 388 bottle capacity), a cooktop, a dishwasher and a fridge. Plus there’s a fireplace, a table tennis area—and the whole thing has heated floors. It’s the perfect setting for a man (or woman) cave.

Possible deal breaker

Some buyers in this price range will want a backyard pool, especially in a yard this size, but there’s none to be found here. What the home lacks in aquatic adventure, it makes up for in veranda: the covered patio has built-in speakers, lights and fans:
