Toronto Life Home of the Week: Rosedale Mansion for $7.5M

ADDRESS: 136 Glen Road

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Rosedale-Moore Park

PRICE: $7,495,000

THE PLACE: An enormous near-century-old mansion nestled deep within Rosedale’s twisting roads that stands as a reminder of Toronto’s regal past.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: A home with a true sense of local history. Built in 1929 for the Burton family—patriarch Charles was the president of the erstwhile retailer Simpsons before son Edgar took over in 1948—the turn-of-the-century version of the Rogers clan spared no expense (despite the larger market forces of the time).

BIG SELLING POINT: With a reflecting pool, a two-storey coach house, a sun-soaked conservatory and a media room (that used to be an in-house stage), this home would be perfect to host your Great Gatsby society conventions or one epic game of Clue (you could even do your accusing in the actual rooms).

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: With a dining room this spectacular, you just know you’re going to become the go-to family for hosting every family get-together. Better bone up on how to brine a turkey—fast.
