Custom-Built Home with Star Power in Humber Valley asks $5.5M
A modern and contemporary home with serious star power in Toronto’s Edenbridge Humber Valley community is now on the market for a cool $5.5 million.
Located at 20 Taylorwood Drive, the home is nestled in a family-friendly neighbourhood and is in close proximity to schools and parks, St. Georges Golf Club, and picturesque James Gardens.
As soon as you see the property, you’ll notice its Scandinavian-esque appearance, with a facade comprised of concrete and wood. Inside, the 3-storey home boasts an open concept layout and floor-to-ceiling windows that make the home feel even more spacious.
Designed by Urbanscape Architects and built by award-winning Barroso Homes, the 5-bedroom, 7-bathroom home offers over 7,400-sq.ft of exceptional above grade finished space and overlooks a ravine near the Humber River.
The home features in-floor heating throughout, a heated two-car garage, and a driveway with a built-in snow-melting system, making the humble abode a dream during the winter months.
As you might imagine, the home is bursting with luxe finishes, including 10-foot ceilings and white oak floors throughout the main floor.
On the main level, you’ll find the gourmet eat-in kitchen, dining room, living room, family room, an office, and a powder room. The kitchen is an entertainer’s dream and boasts VIKING Designer series appliances, including a full refrigerator and freezer, a wine cooler, dishwasher, two fully independent wall ovens, a microwave, a wall hood, and a 21-foot quartz island.
There’s a double-sided gas fireplace in the living room, while the floor-to-ceiling windows in the family room overlook the ravine.
Head upstairs and you’ll find the four bedrooms, which include the master retreat that has a wood-burning fireplace, a swoon-w0rthy his and hers walk-in closet with custom cabinetry, and a spacious ensuite bathroom.
Below is the basement, which is comprised of a bedroom, an entertainment area, a home gym that overlooks the ravine, and a glass wine cellar that can hold up to 200 bottles. There’s also a cedar sauna with spa-like LED lighting, which would undoubtedly make quarantine somewhat endurable.
There’s also a private underground bunker that’s accessible through the basement and is hidden under the floor and doubles as a mechanical room for the home.

Plus, the home was once used as a party venue by Lebron James, Dr Dre, and Drake and was also a set for Transporter: The Series, which would definitely be a fun story for the future homeowners to tell at parties.
