If "stunning outdoor space that can be enjoyed all year round" is on the top of your new-home-hunting list, this Forest Hill estate fits the bill.
Recently renovated and made for gathering in with family and friends alike, the sprawling space stands on a 40 x 130-foot lot and is asking $4,295,000. Featuring a sunken living room with extensive millwork and warm, glowy light, this home is hitting the market at the perfect time -- it looks like the ideal spot for getting cozy with layers of blankets by the fire, dimming the lights, and setting up a Christmas tree.
Cold-season cooking, too, will be all the more inviting in a kitchen such as the one at this property. Complete with a six-burner gas stove, a warming drawer, a Miele coffee machine, and a subzero fridge, whipping up a meal for the whole family in this space won't just be a breeze, but a pleasure.
Upstairs, each bedroom is vast and sun-soaked, while the master is complete with a fireplace, a walk-in closet, and an enchanting five-piece ensuite. Any chambers not needed for sleeping can be reconfigured into home-office spaces or remote school settings, making the at-home experience of These Strange Times a little (read: a lot) more comfortable.
Down below, a finished basement is ready for anything, providing a cozy space for movie-binging as well as a separate area, ideal for a children's play space, a home gym, or an additional office setup.
And finally, out back, paradise awaits. The spectacular, landscaped backyard features a saltwater pool with a waterfall -- just imagine, basking out here, when summer days return -- as well as a hot tub, and a stone island with an outdoor cooking setup. The area is finished with a barbecue, cooktop, stove, fridge, and bar... and that's not all.
On the adjacent side of the pool, a covered lounge space features a gas fireplace, TV, and overhead lighting. Nothing sounds dreamier than bringing stacks of blankets out to the lounge and enjoying a holiday film while sipping mulled wine or warm cider, as the fire crackles beneath the television screen.
Sure, the pool won't be in commission until warmer days return, but with a hot tub on-site and all the other amenities this backyard includes, there's no excuse for not spending plenty of time outside this winter.
Meanwhile, location-wise, this property stands among the best of them.
Tucked into Forest Hill South, the address sees Cedarvale Park past Bathurst to the west, schools past Spadina to the east, and the Eglinton and St. Clair West strips to the north and south, respectively. Whether it's a nice meal or a local bakery you seek, a delicious destination is always just around the corner.
