House of the Week: $6.2 million for a Forest Hill brick home a few doors down from the Rogers and Westons

ADDRESS: 93 Dunvegan Road

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Forest Hill South

AGENT: Leeanne Weld, Royal LePage J&D Division

PRICE: $6,200,000

THE PLACE: A recently renovated three-storey brick home in the south end of Forest Hill.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: With famous neighbours like Suzanne and Ed Rogers, Loretta Rogers, and Hilary and Galen Weston only a few doors away, borrowing a cup of sugar just got a whole lot more glamorous.

BIG SELLING POINT: A spectacular two-storey atrium sets this house apart from the rest of the spacious and stately brick homes in Forest Hill. The glass and steel wall gives the space an airy feel, and provides views of the garden from the hallways, kitchen and even the master bedroom.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: We hope you like Lou Reed, otherwise you’ll probably want to paint over that mural in the billiards room. May we suggest a Mick Jagger mosaic?

    nicely done.
    no pool?

  • A.

    Very nice.

    Although there is a lot of really hideous furniture in that house.

  • Paul

    Agree, Tony. I need a pool with all that big backyard & price tag. A… the furniture is not bad me thinks especially for the living room and dining table set.

  • Mike

    Really well done–love everything (even the Lou Reed!)

  • Methinks

    Beautiful home. Maybe the new owners will get a pool put in. The Lou Reed pic is EPIC…

  • Rose

    @A: You clearly don’t know what you’re talking about. Those are modern classics – some of the most iconic furniture from the past century.

  • A.

    Doesn’t mean it’s not ugly, Rose.

  • Roy

    Nice house. Only complaint is the second floor landing! Please – remove those chairs – when is the last time three people sat there? Not a good use of that space. Oh and for a house that expensive – the backyard furniture needs a face lift. Good luck.

  • Ping

    Nice house although I don’t particularly like the front exterior. Why all the criticisms of the furniture when its not part of the sale?

  • peachy

    modern extension bit great but overall still waaaay to conservative / yester-year. should have chunked out the rooms a bit, played around with layout more.

    garden quite nice somehow

  • peachy

    ps. for petes sake leave the lou reed

    This house is outstanding, the 3rd floor bedroom is a bit ugly but the space is huge. The furniture is mod and classic. If I had the money I would buy this house fully furnished.
