Dream Homes: 35 million to 1

These days it’s near impossible to find a house listed in Toronto for under $300,000. But lo and behold, there is! Even better? It’s only $1! Could it be a sales tactic? We pit the city’s least expensive listing, a mansion in York Mills, against its most expensive for $35 million.

This gated French chateau at 68 The Bridle Path is on the market for a whopping $35 million. The elaborate home has played host to a fair share of notable persons, including Jane Fonda, Bette Middler and Pierre Trudeau. The expansive property includes more than four acres of manicured grounds to roam, a stately fountain, a circular drive made up of granite cobblestone and a stone patio. The three-storey mansion also boasts nine bedrooms and 14 bathrooms, a spacious indoor pool with high ceilings, a library with built-in bookcases and fireplace, a tennis court and, of course, a golf cart to get around in. The property is on offer with Re/Max Realtron Barry Cohen Homes Inc., Brokerage.  


This palatial home at 30 Fifeshire Rd. has been on the market for more than 100 days and is currently on offer for the modest price of $1. Safe to say the price is probably too good to be true, since it appears as though no expense was spared in its construction. The 24,000-square-foot residence is teeming with luxurious details, such as custom-designed slab marble flooring, panelled walls, carved marble fireplaces and a grand marble staircase. Plus there is a frescoed ceiling reminiscent of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel masterpiece in the grand foyer. The three-storey home also includes a banquet hall that can accommodate 150 guests, an indoor pool, computerized golf simulator, wine cellar, and sauna. It is listed with HomeLife/Romano Realty, Ltd. Brokerage.
