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.

$35 MIL ON THE BRIDLE PATH
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.  

VS.

$1 IN YORK MILLS
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.
