House of the Week: $2.8 million for a brick-and-stone family home in the heart of Forest Hill

hotwmay23This is a pretty spectacular home – four bedrooms on the upper level, three with en-suites, and a full bedroom and bathroom in the basement. It even comes complete with a pool!

Address: 126 Kilbarry Road
Neighbourhood: Forest Hill South
Price: $2,795,000

The Place: A classy five-bedroom home with a chateau-like exterior in the heart of Forest Hill.

Bragging Rights: Major curb appeal. Passers-by often stop to admire the pretty landscaping and ivy-covered white stone.

Big Selling Point: The house is walking distance from Forest Hill Junior and Senior Public School, Upper Canada College, St. Mike’s and Bishop Strachan School, which means you don’t have to deal with carpooling—or buying teenagers their own car.

Possible Deal Breaker: The three upstairs bedrooms have a bay window, a chalkboard wall and a cheery mural, respectively, and it’s pretty likely your children will fight over who gets which. We suggest flipping a coin, or maybe a no-holds-barred wrestling match.

By the Numbers:
• $2,795,000

• 60-foot lot
• 11-foot ceilings on the main floor
• 5 bedrooms
