Toronto Life House of the Week: $6.3 million for a red-brick Georgian mansion in Casa Loma

This one has both a wine cellar and a soda fountain.

ADDRESS: 60 Dunvegan Road

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Casa Loma

PRICE: $6,295,000

THE PLACE: A red-brick Georgian mansion grand enough to stand out in a neighbourhood full of Georgian mansions.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: There’s a soda fountain and an ice cream bar in the games room, meaning you basically have your own Pop Tate’s Chok’lit Shoppe.

BIG SELLING POINT: The interior design covers just about every aesthetic era, so when you want to feel like a medieval English lord, you can retire to the wood-panelled study; when you want to feel like Delta Burke circa Designing Women, there’s the spectacularly ’80s front hall; and when you’re planning a Boogy Nights–style party, the glam, mirror-filled, ’70s basement room will surely do the trick.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: That said, having a faux leopard-print rug on the stairs might not be cruel to animals, but it’s cruel to anyone with a sense of style.

BY THE NUMBERS:
• $6,295,000
• $31,046.86 (2011 taxes)
• 8 bedrooms
