Neighbourhood: Edenbridge – Humber Valley
Agent: Bev Jones and Steve Broadhurst. RE/MAX Professionals Inc., Brokerage
Price: $6,495,000

The Place: A modern four-bedroom home on a large lot that backs onto the fourth green of the storied St. George’s Golf and Country Club.

Bragging Rights: Not a typical McMansion, this contemporary house was custom designed by Altius Architecture Inc. and has industrial-inspired finishes like board-formed concrete and exposed metal beaming.

Big Selling Point: Don’t be fooled by the home’s urban feel—the sprawling backyard, which has a swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen and a fire pit, offers all the perks of life in the ‘burbs.

Possible Deal Breaker: The purple statement wall that dominates the main floor may be too much for even the most ardent Prince fan.

    The exterior of the house is great! The family room has a
    gas fireplace, the master bedroom has a dressing room, so cool! The office is
    also awesome. So much natural light! I like this place. We recently bought our
    first house, it doesn’t have 3-car
    garage, a swimming pool but neither its cost is $6,495,000. We couldn’t afford
    such a luxury. We found it at
    and we both think it was a very good deal. It’s not some kind of advertising, I
    just want to share with you this single moment of happiness. When you finally
    have the place that you are not renting, that is yours! Wish everyone to feel
    this pleasure.
