Toronto neighbourhoods like the Bridle Path and Rosedale are often associated with the region’s wealthiest residents. But beyond the city proper’s borders there are a number of high-priced estates, including the GTA’s most expensive home. Just check out this list of the most expensive homes on the market in the GTA to see where — and what — they are.
10. 20 High Point Road, Toronto — $15,000,000
The first of two mansions on Toronto’s High Point Road in the exclusive Bridle Path neighbourhood, where Drake is building his new abode, is a hulking red-brick affair. Those who loath yard work will probably appreciate the “gardener’s apartment,” ideal for the groundskeeper. And the owner would have good reason to have one — there are about two acres to maintain here.
9. 14760 11th Concession Road, King — $15,888,800
Billed as an “enchanting equestrian estate befitting royalty,” whoever wrote the listing description isn’t kidding. Note: it has a 38-stall horse stable and private racetrack. At about 22,000 square feet of living area, the five-bedroom dwelling has a lot of space for people to roam around, too.
8. 1865 Davis Drive, King — $15,980,000
Also in King, this stone chateaux was recently reno’d, so the new owners shouldn’t have to worry about an update anytime soon. The architect took inspiration from French architecture, according to the listing, making use of “European craftsmanship” and “ultra-high-end materials.” It’s positioned way up atop a hill, and the total property equals 23 acres.
7. 229 Dunvegan Road, Toronto — $16,000,000
This house in southern Forest Hill offers considerably less space to roam around — still, a 50-foot lot is quite something for a home in Toronto proper — but it’s chock full of amenities: a saltwater pool, home theatre, wine cellar, gym and an underground eight-car garage are among them.
6. 46 Forest Hill Road, Toronto — $16,800,000
The dark decor may not appeal to everyone, but that’s not something a little paint can’t change. Interior-design choices aside, the bones of this steel-and-concrete build are solid and house a gym, wine room and games room. It’s also a home for all ages — an elevator provides access to each level.
5. 1092 Argyle Drive, Oakville — $16,988,000
A lakeside tennis match on a private hardcourt, a glass of vintage wine from the cellar enjoyed on the deck above, or an intimate screening in a plush theatre: these are just a few of the options available to the future owner of the approximately 14,000-square-foot 1092 Argyle Drive.
4. 61 The Bridle Path, Toronto — $17,880,000
At its current list price, it’s tough to imagine a more expensive bungalow in the GTA. What 61 The Bridle Path lacks in height it more than makes up for in other ways — fitting, considering it’s late pop star Prince’s former Toronto pad. “A majestic ambience for entertaining on a global level,” is one of the qualities the listing highlights. Its very own hair salon is another.
3. 16 High Point Road, Toronto — $19,380,000
Nothing like having a ballroom in your very own home. This 33,650-square-foot Bridle Path stucco-clad freehold has that, and a lot more geared towards entertaining. For example, there’s an indoor pool, spa, theatre, and catering kitchen. Outside, you’ll find a tea house, sport court and garden “oasis” with a pond.
2. 10 Highland Avenue, Toronto — $22,000,000
A timeless stately home, the 17,000-square-foot 10 Highland Avenue in Rosedale-Moore has classic touches including marble fireplaces, antique mantels, and a billiard room with a wet bar, as well as a wood-panelled library, to name a few.
1. 15350 Bathurst Street, King — $24,950,000
For those who love the Great Outdoors, this country estate north of Toronto could be the one. “Foxley Estate” (as it’s being called) in King sits on a roughly 80-acre corner lot. For scale, that’s larger than CityPlace, Hogtown’s largest ever residential development. This massive property is traced with hiking trails and features a cold-water stream and pond. It even has a private 13-stall stable.
