Serving equal parts luxury and comfort at Avenue and Lawrence, 496 Fairlawn Avenue makes for the ultimate family home.

(But buyer beware: you might have trouble getting your kids' friends to leave the decked-out backyard.)

Located in the peaceful north Toronto neighbourhood of Bedford Park and crafted by Madison Homes, this bespoke masterpiece offers an exquisite blend of spaciousness and opulence, featuring grand designs, modern touches, and high-end amenities. At the same time, its cozy and welcoming atmosphere makes it a home you can easily unwind in.

Among this Toronto gem’s long list of selling points are a newly lined saltwater pool, a hot tub, a home office, and multiple fireplaces, complemented by hardwood floors and lofty 10-ft ceilings throughout the main level.

Park your car in the home’s six-car driveway and gaze up at its striking stone facade, climbing nearly three storeys. Inside, you’re greeted by a stately entrance punctuated by an ornate chandelier.

Immediately, the home’s sophisticated grandeur is clear. The front sitting room and formal dining room flow into one another, and lead to the light-filled kitchen and living room. In the kitchen, the chef of the house gets to chop veggies on the jumbo island’s quartz countertop, and then cook up a storm with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances.

Upstairs, the elegant primary bedroom looks out over the lush backyard — and enjoys a sleek-yet-charming seven-piece spa bathroom, complete with a steam shower, and two walk-in closets. The kids get in on the luxury too, with all three secondary bedrooms also enjoying their own walk-in closets and ensuites.

(You get an ensuite, you get an ensuite, everybody gets an ensuite!)


On the lower level, join family and friends for a drink at the wet bar, or indulge in a movie night using the built-in overhead projector. Then, escape the city (without sitting in 401 traffic) by heading to the professionally landscaped backyard, which includes a saltwater pool, in-ground hot tub, and multiple lounging areas.

Our Favourite Thing

We can't get over the backyard. It's got all the fun perks you would want in an outdoor space: a massive saltwater pool, hot tub, and outdoor eating area with a BBQ. But it's also beautifully landscaped, with the perfect amount of greenery to boot. Like the rest of the home, the backyard just feels like one big invitation to sit back and relax. (And maybe do a cannonball.)

Though tucked into a quiet neighbourhood, 496 Fairlawn Avenue is a short drive to the 401, and is within walking distance of the shops and restaurants of Avenue Road. Plus, the property backs onto a community park complete with a public skating rink and swimming pool.

At this Bedford Park abode, location, comfort, and luxury combine to create a top-tier lifestyle offering.
