Canada is home to many displays of architectural brilliance, but this $28 million Bridle Path mansion for sale is among the most impressive.
Described as “one of Canada’s most architecturally-significant residences,” 30 High Point Road is more than a home — it’s an “iconic contemporary landmark,” according to the Sotheby’s listing.
The home was built in 1973 by director and major share owner of one of Canada’s most successful corporations, Canadian Tire, and was designed by the acclaimed architect John C. Parkin.
Parkin is famous for designing local landmarks you may have heard of, like Toronto City Hall and Pearson International Airport.
“As Canadian Tire is set to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2023, 30 High Point Road is looking for a new owner to appreciate its modernist design for generations to come,” says the listing.
This spectacular home is also one of the largest in Canada, and its design is described as “imposing and elegant at the same time.”
The property features 8 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, and a whopping 22 parking spaces. There are soaring ceilings and sweeping views in every room, plus 2.12 acres of outdoor space and amenities.
Other features include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a 7-car heated garage facility, an atrium, a zen garden, a 1,700-square-foot rec room, an indoor bridge, and special rooms for house staff.
In the dining room, you’ll find a stunning hand-painted oriental mural.
The home is exceptionally well-built, perched high on a hill atop landscaped grounds with each floor allowing for maximum sunlight exposure.
It’s not every day that a home in Toronto’s most prestigious neighbourhood goes up for sale, let alone the “crown jewel of Canadian modern architecture.”
We wonder which prominent individual will be the new proud owner of this majestic estate.
