    Ha! People were saying that the home in The Sanctuary a couple days ago was situated on a terrible lot!

    This is ridiculous. You can babble all day long that this is an exclusive part of Toronto (if there is such a thing) and homes sell for this price. The fact of the matter is it looks like a North Korean gingerbread house from the outside, and a dark, depressing prison on the inside. Please tell me why the room in photo 7 is that huge.
    Only nice part of the house is the kitchen and master bath. $5 million…HA!

      I’ve decided I’m going to find something nice to say about every house on this blog. Its just the way I am.

      I like the fact that it has an 8 car garage.

        Agreed. Having an 8-car garage enviable.

      Ha HA Ha,

      You have said everything I was going to say about this house and then some.

      To me nowhere that does not have a beach and is essentially winter for most of the year should ever be called exclusive.

      In summation, this house is exceedingly boring zzzzzzzzzz

    Blah, I had no idea Toronto was so expensive. This would sell for around 800k in my neck of the woods. It does nothing for me.

    Mak, you really are so sweet! I used to live in Toronto, and wouldn’t care to again. But now I live on the “wet coast” where you can pay 18million-plus for a mansion. And it’s still rainy and cool 10 months out of the year…go figure. I want to win the lottery and move to (perhaps) Panama. I’m sick to death of cold-climates. And I’m jealous of Daniel, living, it seems, in Florida.
    So, rob, you think Toronto is expensive…try Vancouver…pffft 😉

    Even if i had an 8 car garage i probably would still need more storage space.

    I suppose i dont need 8 bathrooms though.

    Gah…another bland, boring, unimaginative, middle of the road, multi-million dollar spec house that’s designed to appeal to a large market and ends up appealing to very few people because of its banality.

    I think the inspiration for the room in picture 7 was the endless hallway scene in the movie Poltergeist.

    I will follow Mak’s lead and attempt to say something nice about the house. Let’s see…the 8-car garage has already been mentioned so I won’t use that. Actually, I can think of a couple of things. First, if you live here and want to borrow a cup of sugar from your neighbors, you don’t have to bother going outside; you can just open the window and have it passed between the houses. Second, and this is really the best thing I can think of about this house: I don’t have to live in it.

    In between looking at the pics and looking at other people’s comments, I was seriously saying aloud to myself “Is this SERIOUSLY the going rate of a less-than-mediocre home in Toronto??”. Judging by others’ comments, I’m not alone. There is just nothing here that rises above boring, and most of it falls somewhere below. TINY lot, uninspired design. This is just gross. Grrrowler said it best with the comment about trying to appeal to everyone and ending up appealing to no one.

    Why the hell does a 5,000 sq ft home need an 8-car garage?

    I think the reference to 8 car garage is a typo. The listings says 3 car garage, and that’s what the listing pictures show.

    More, and better pictures can be found here: http://m.agentshowing.com/IBnQSt

    Given current pricing in the area the house is probably a bit over priced. Similar sized and styled homes in the same area have recently been listed closer to $4M than $5M. Having said that, depending on the finishes it might not be that over priced. As for the big room in picture number 7, that’s in the basement. A large open floor plan “party room/games room” in the basement is fairly common in large new homes in Toronto (and the picture probably makes it seem bigger than it really is – likely the listing agent trying to make it look huge)

    I realize that compared to elsewhere the home might seem extremely expensive, but keep in mind that the builder likely paid somewhere between $2.5M – $3M just for the ‘land’.

    I live around the area so I’m quite familiar with the market condition. Bayview/Yorkmill is one of the most exclusive neighbourhood.

    However, I do believe 5-million asking price is a little bit over-the-top. $4 million is about right.

    p.s. 8-car garage is a typo because there is no way this house will have an 8 car garage.
