124 Park Road | Toronto Central - Rosedale-Moore Park
Imagine a home that has real character, is soft, warm and comfortable, without the harsh lines of more modern homes, that speaks to another century, when craftsmanship was paramount and design was unique. Now place this home on close to one acre with a ravine as a backyard, secluded, yet minutes from downtown.

Imagine a home that has real character, is soft, warm and comfortable, without the harsh lines of more modern homes, that speaks to another century, when craftsmanship was paramount and design was unique. Now place this home on close to one acre with a ravine as a backyard, secluded, yet minutes from downtown. Welcome to Rosedale’s Geary house, built before Confederation, in 1857, with a wonderfully interesting layout reflecting the fact that it was once a one storey home and is now three, with a sweeping veranda with a decidedly southern feel to it, that cradles the front and side of the house. The beautifully wood-panelled library could be straight out of a whodunit and the games complex in the basement includes a full spa, a ball hockey court and a wine cellar, for after your workout, of course. One of the fascinating things about this house is the tunnel that meanders from the main house to the coach house at the back, diving under the well appointed backyard and the swimming pool. Wide and zigzagging, well lit and carpeted, it feels more like a linear art gallery than a tunnel. Outside, the secluded backyard drops down into the ravine where there is room for a small soccer pitch, or ice hockey rink in the winter, fully surrounded by trees and privacy. Poolside is no shrinking violet either. The house, at five bedrooms and nine bathrooms is big enough that you can get lost, yet it retains a cosy feel that some of its more modern peers lack – just one of the few things that makes this property unique. Go for it!
Offered at $19,800,000.
