Slower sales impacting the 905 more than central Toronto
A modern Thornhill mansion perched above an exclusive golf course versus a sprawling Richmond Hill château backed onto a ravine with views from every room. Both have been sitting pretty for just over 100 days as a slower market impacts the 905 more than central Toronto. CASTLE IN THE WOODS Seemingly emerging from a fairy tale, this $6,980,000 French château backs directly onto conservation lands, offering privacy and stunning views from each of its 17 rooms. French doors open into a dining room wrapped with floor-to-ceiling windows. In fact, giant windows follow you from room to room, from the spacious lower-level games room to the spa-like master ensuite. Outdoors, there’s extensive nightscape lighting to guide visitors into the three-car garage, an intimate upper balcony and a larger back deck, primed for entertaining. The property is also decked out with an elevator, built-in speakers, a gourmet kitchen and service kitchen and a gym. At press time, this property has been on the market for 105 days with Avenue Realty Inc., Brokerage. THOROUGHLY MODERN MANSION Make a splash in a real millionaire’s pad: This gleaming jewel of Thornhill on Fairway Heights Drive overlooks the manicured grounds of the Bayview Golf and Country Club and offers a sleek pool with a pond and waterfalls. This impeccably designed property offers clean lines and contemporary features, including wood and glass accents, hardwood floor, a tubular wood-panelled fireplace and a second living room overlooking the expansive backyard. Each of the three floors has a balcony, and back windows extend from first-floor to second-floor ceiling, offering no shortage of glorious natural light. This property has been on the market for 101 days at press time and is listed for $8,280,000 with Hammond International Properties Limited, Brokerage.
