Real Estate


House of the Week: $8 million for an Etobicoke home with the vibe (and square footage) of a country estate

ADDRESS: 57 Edenbrook Hill

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Edenbridge-Humber Valley

AGENT: Bev Jones and Steve Broadhurst, Re/Max Professionals

PRICE: $7,987,000

THE PLACE: With its long, gated driveway and regal appointments, this five-bedroom manor on a 1.4-acre property in Etobicoke feels more like a country estate than a city pad.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The home is located just off the 11th green at the storied St. George’s Golf and Country Club, which has hosted five Canadian Opens. Buying here may not nab you a membership at the private club, but it will let you watch world-class golf from your bedroom.

BIG SELLING POINT: Once the sweltering summer hits, you’ll appreciate the back yard, with its stone patio, lush gardens and what is less a pool than a full saltwater lagoon—complete with waterfall.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: With approximately 4,599 square feet on the main floor and another 4,599 on the lower level, plus 1,719 upstairs, that’s a whole lot of space to dust and vacuum. Better hire a cleaning service.
