The place: A renovated two-bedroom on a private Thorncrest side road.
The history: Known as the Palermo estate, the property is one of the original homes from Thorncrest’s earliest days, in the mid-1940s. The seller bought the house a little over three years ago. He commissioned a design from architect Rocco Margana and began renovating from the ground up. By the end, he’d converted the former four-bedroom into a two-bedroom home with a luxury office.
Big selling point: The location is perfect for a jet-setter with a strong backswing. It’s fifteen minutes away from Pearson and within a nine iron’s drive of three ritzy golf clubs: St. George’s, Lambton, and Islington. Also, for an extra $750,000, the seller will throw in all the art and furnishings.
