House of the Week: $6.5 million for a contemporary estate that looks out on St. George’s Golf Club

House of the Week: 421 The Kingsway Address: 421 The Kingsway
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.
