House of the Week: $3.3 million for an antique mansion across the street from High Park

(Image: Birdhouse Media)

Address: 54 High Park Boulevard
Neighbourhood: High Park
Agent: Monte Walls Burris and Greg Makin, Keller Williams Referred Urban Realty, Brokerage
Price: $3,300,000

The Place: A massive six-bedroom, six-bathroom brick manse located five doors away from the east gate of High Park.

The History: The sellers, only the fourth family to own the home since it was built, believe it to be about 100 years old. The house still has some original features, like a (sadly non-functional) “sherry” button to the right of the living room fireplace, which originally would have rung a bell in the third-floor servants’ quarters when the owners wanted a drink. There’s also an original coal chute, now bricked over inside. The interior has been modernized, within reason: the kitchen, bathrooms and basement have all had updates during the past decade.

Big Selling Point: The quiet reading room, complete with mosaic-tiled fireplace, has a bay window overlooking the front porch, quarter-sawn oak flooring and space for enough books to last a hundred rainy days.
