Are you curious to see what the ultimate Toronto luxury property looks like? This $35,000,000 mansion is currently the city's most expensive home for sale!
68 The Bridle Path is one of the many oppulent homes that make up Toronto's Bridle Path, a notorious wealthy enclave that was once home to Conrad Black and is soon to be home to Canadian rapper Drake!
This particular slice of "Millionaire's Row" encompasses a gated four acre plot, with the house itself spanning around 40,000 square feet!
Ever dream of what life would be like if you lived in a place like this? We do - all the time!
Imagine, for a moment, that you're the new owner of this gilded home, and you're about to play host to a gaggle of visiting friends and family. No problem! With 10 bedrooms and 40 parking spaces, you'll surely be able to squeeze everyone in somewhere.
And since we're pretending, why not greet your guests by dramtically sweeping down the grand staircase in the front hall, channeling ostentatious old-Hollywood flare!?
Once they're settled, you could treat everyone to a splash and a soak in the full-sized indoor swimming pool. Or, if your guests are fans of topiary, take them on a stroll through the expansive manicured gardens, reminiscent of a 17th century French villa.
Feeling peckish? Serve the first four courses in style in the grand dining room, with cocktails in the salon afterward! (And when it comes to washing up, if you're loathe to mix china with glassware, don't worry - the luxe eat-in chef's kitchen has multiple dishwashers!)
The unfortunate truth is that, whether it costs $2M or $35M, the majority of Torontonians (particularly Millennials) will never be able to afford a detached home in the city.
But it's certainly fun to dream!
While 68 The Bridle Path is the most expensive detached home on the market right now, this Sky-High Penthouse In The Four Seasons that we wrote about earlier this year is still a pricier property by about a million bucks.
Do you think 'Gentrification' is purely the limited to the middle class moving into working class neighbourhoods? Here's my real estate 'culture war' piece about a $4million tear down which became a $15million mansion in Toronto's Forest Hill Neighbourhood to the consternation of the monied old guard!
