Guided by authentic European expertise and extraordinary connoisseurship, the exceptionally gorgeous interior design is adorned with an opulent abundance of 24-carat gold leaf, complemented by a treasure trove of priceless antique pieces sourced from various corners of the world. Behind the majestic wrought iron gate, this mansion encompasses a main residence building and a garden pavilion hermitage to the north. Approximately total of 33,003 square feet of finished space with a long list of remarkable amenities abound. Step into the 28-foot elliptical foyer and the soaring 15-foot main floor, where you open the door to a world of timeless elegance and opulence. In every corner, you'll discover a narrative of grandeur and sophistication, where luxury is elevated to the highest level possible.

The premium location also exudes a distinct sense of refinement. This splendidly gilded mansion graces a two-acre expanse of land in Bridle Path, the city's most affluent neighborhood at its heart. Its placement is perfectly aligned with all the resources that families of prominence might require in the urban sphere.

The pleasures of a home.'

Area Description

The Bridle Path has often been referred to as "Millionaires Row". This exclusive enclave of homes is surrounded by the Don River Valley and lush parkland, which provide the perfect backdrop for The Bridle Path's stately homes. The Bridle Path could hardly have been envisioned by Alexander Milne, who settled on what is now Edwards Gardens in 1827. Milne operated woolen and saw mills on the banks of Wilket Creek until 1832 when a dwindling water supply forced Milne to move east to a mill site along the Don River. The Bridle Path inconspicuously spent the rest of the 1800's and early 1900's as farmland. It wasn't until 1929, when the Bayview Bridge was built over the steep Don River Valley, that this area was considered for residential development. Hubert Daniel Bull Page, a Toronto-based land developer was one of the founders of the present day neighbourhood. Page envisioned the Bridle Path as an exclusive enclave of estate homes. In 1929, Page built the Cape Cod Colonial style house at number 2 The Bridle Path, in an effort to spark interest in his subdivision. Early plans for this neighbourhood called for an elaborate system of equestrian Bridle Paths. These Bridle Paths have long since been paved over, however their legacy remains in the Bridle Path's unusually wide streets and in the name of this neighbourhood.
