Inside this $8 million Toronto ‘masterpiece’ with a climbing wall
Nestled in the Lytton Park neighborhood, this spacious home with contemporary finishes is luxurious in detail and offers an oasis in the city.
The home, located at 65 Hillhurst Boulevard in the Lawrence Park South neighborhood of Toronto, costs $7,990,000 and has four bedrooms and seven bathrooms. On the market for nearly two weeks, the home features a Scavolini kitchen, a large hall with a skylight, and a library ready to be filled with literature with floor-to-ceiling open shelves and closed cabinets.
Sales agent Justin Cohen says the home was custom built for a family and “appeals to a wide audience”.
With features that can cater to any family dynamic, the 6,957 square feet of living space is furnished with oak hardwood floors, huge custom windows flood the home with plenty of light, there is a driveway and heated walkways and soaring cathedral ceilings.
A more adventurous family will appreciate the sweet surprise of a climbing wall on one of the floors.
“The coolest part is you kind of have to have two basement levels. The underground level has a home theater, a rock climbing wall, a guest room, and a nanny room,” Cohen said. .
According to Cohen, the lower first basement is almost half above ground, echoing a “true living space”, and makes the house appear to be actually three stories above ground.
The open concept living space is very functional with windows and sliding doors overlooking the oasis and rear pool garden, gas fireplace and is connected to the chef-worthy Scanvolini kitchen. The galley includes a prep kitchen in the butler’s pantry and is designed for heavy cooking and entertaining guests.
The house, beautifully bright with light streaming into every corner, also includes a wine cellar, gym and bar.
Located in Lytton Park, and close to East and North York, the “coveted neighborhood,” Cohen said, is located in the Allen Independent School District, “one of the best school districts in the city,” a said Cohen.
The house is between Eglinton Park, Memorial Park and Lytton Sunken Gardens. A five to 10 minute walk will take you to great local restaurants and a 25 minute drive will take you downtown.
