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?
