This mansion is located in the Greater Toronto Area. It was built around 1985. I named it the “Wasted Space Mansion” because I find that it has too much room and not enough character. You could fill it with furniture and still have too much empty space left over.
The mansion was purchased in 1985 for $835,000 by a wealthy developer. Today’s value is approximately $4.5 million dollars.
Once you enter inside the main doors, you’re greeted by a security camera on the right wall. It does move, though it didn’t seem to be tracking anything. Just off to your left will be a glass tiled wall and water fountain. If you walk behind that fountain you’ll find a bathroom.
Further inside the house on the left is a large kitchen with patio doors leading to the outside yard and pool. Just off to the right is what would be the living room, with a fireplace. The lighting in this room is extensive, with spotlights and then trim lights that light up just the walls.
Moving down to the left of the main lobby you’ll come to a laundry room and the door to the garage.
Take a right from the main lobby and you’ll come to the bedrooms and walk in closet. There’s a metal gate here which purpose I’m not clear on, unless you want to keep your pets out or something.
Your first stop as you turn right should be the entertainment room. This room has a fabric (not wallpaper) flower pattern on the wall which matches the couch. The couch appears to be part of the wall. The switches to raise and lower the curtains and screen (or light blocking screen?) are just behind the couch. There’s a bar and a fridge in this room. Perfect for movie nights and sports playoffs.
Around the corner is another bathroom with two stalls: one toilet and bidet, one toilet. I guess if you want to listen to one another take a crap this is for you. The bathroom is huge.
There’s a stairway leading to the basement where you’ll find a mini kitchen, a bar area and gym equipment. There’s more wasted space with a large room with a purpose that would seem pointless.
The property is vacant because of alleged fraudulent activity that took place regarding investments for purchasing several homes in the area, including this one.
November 2022 update : The house is now being renovated with plumbing upgrades and new windows.
