Massive, multimillion dollar mansions may seem de rigueur in Toronto’s tony Bridle Path neighborhood, but there are firsts among equals. A prime example of the top-tier estates for sale in the North York enclave is this 18,276-square-foot mansion and detached coach house set on two manicured acres.
Iron gates open to a circular motor court at the front of the stone-clad residence. Four tall columns mark the wide portico entrance.
An elegant reception hall with soaring cathedral ceilings and marble tiled floors create a dramatic first impression while dual staircases flank either side of the room. A second set of stairs lead to the lower level.
Glass-paned doors off the hall open to grand formal spaces such as a dining room adorned with crown molding, wainscotting and a carved fireplace.
Doors off the two-story tall living room open to a terrace. Wood-clad walls and built-in shelves line the library/office, which has herringbone-patterned parquet floors. An intimate family room as well as a media room and a billiards room are among other living spaces.
The kitchen, outfitted with Wolf appliances, centers on an island with bar seating, a sink, a cooktop and a quartz countertop. An informal dining area sits off the kitchen.
Among the second floor bedrooms is a primary suite with a sitting room, a dressing room and 7-piece ensuite bathroom with heated floors. The third floor has a rec room, storage and two more bedrooms for a total of 9 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
Staff quarters, a spa and a gym are on the lower level.
A swimming pool with a diving board, a cabana and tennis court complete the grounds.
