14,000 SQUARE FOOT ES­TATE

The elab­o­rate two-storey de­tached house at 21 Thorn­bank Rd. in the heart of old Thorn­hill boasts seven bed­rooms and 12 bath­rooms on a 1.3 acre lot. The home of­fers 14,000 square feet of space on the first floor and 8,000 square feet of liv­ing space on the sec­ond level. The grand gated es­tate was built in 2012, en­vi­sioned and de­signed by fa­mous ar­chi­tect Richard Wen­gle, with fea­tures that in­clude 11-foot cathe­dral ceil­ings and heated floors. The man­sion is an en­ter­tainer’s dream with sell­ing fea­tures that in­clude an in-ground salt­wa­ter pool, in­door spa, home theatre, bil­liards room and a con­nois­seur’s dream wine cel­lar and tast­ing room. It is listed on the mar­ket for $10.95 mil­lion with Alan New­ton Real Es­tate Limited, Bro­ker­age.

11,730 SQUARE FEET OF STYLE

You get more house for your dol­lar with this prop­erty at 17 York Ridge Rd. The six-bed­room, 12-bath­room home of­fers more than 11,730 square feet of space with soar­ing 16-foot ceil­ings. The house has ev­ery­thing from a large home theatre and ball­room to a wine cel­lar, gym, ca­bana and pool. The prop­erty is built for con­ve­nience: the four-car ser­vice garage is ac­ces­si­ble by el­e­va­tor; the drive­way is heated, so shov­el­ling snow won’t be on any to-do lists; and sprin­klers line the prop­erty. Plus the mas­sive tiered cedar deck in the re­sort-like back­yard is an added bonus. The down­side? Po­ten­tial buy­ers should be pre­pared to spend a pretty penny on prop­erty tax and up­keep. It is on of­fer for $8.95 mil­lion with City Plus Realty Inc., Bro­ker­age.

The chef’s kitchen has top-of-the line ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a six-burner gas stove, two ovens, heated stone floors and a cen­tre is­land fea­tur­ing gran­ite coun­ter­tops.

The aerial shot of the 1.3-acre prop­erty shows a two-storey es­tate that is rem­i­nis­cent of a Euro­pean back­coun­try home.

The 17 by 16–square-foot eat-in chef’s kitchen has a vaulted ceiling, white cab­i­netry and a mas­sive cen­tre is­land.
