House of the Week: $3.7 million for a Forest Hill family home with a tricked-out backyard


I have to admit, this home is pretty spectacular – even the nanny suite looks good. The real selling point is the backyard with the pool and hot tub.

Address: 43 Glenayr Road

Neighbourhood: Forest Hill South

Price: $3,679,900

The Place: A five-bedroom family home with a large backyard pool located near two top private schools and Forest Hill Village.

Bragging Rights: With a wet bar, a butler’s pantry, marble counters and a chandelier, that is one classy kitchen.

Big Selling Point: The interior decorator who owns the home gutted it in 2011, but wisely kept the original façade so that it would continue to mesh with the style of the neighbourhood.

Possible Deal Breaker: The tile flooring spelling out “boys” and “girls” in the kids’ bathrooms is adorable—unless your children are all the same sex.

By the Numbers:
• $3,679,900
• $13,123 in property taxes (estimated)
• 4,320 square feet of living space
• 2,145-square-foot finished basement
• 6 bathrooms
• 5 bedrooms
• 4 skylights
• 3 storeys
• 2 wood burning fireplaces
• 1 kidney-shaped pool
