Cool Homes: Who lives in Forest Hill?

Share This Post:

Who lives in Forest Hill?

About a week ago, we were browsing the web in search of new content for you and found out that one of the top searches on Google was: Who lives in Forest Hill?

For those of you that are reading this and are not from Toronto, Forest Hill is a neighbourhood and former village located north of Downtown Toronto. In 1967, it was amalgamated into Toronto, and the area has retained its name as a neighbourhood. It is also one of the richest neighbourhoods in the city!

While browsing, we found numerous beautiful mansions in the hood, but one in particular caught our interest. So, we decided to feature it in our cool homes series!


After tearing down a pre-existing house, the new owners built this fabulous mansion to sell it only 3 years later for almost $7M!!!

The sale put over $4M in the seller’s pocket – minus all the expenses, of course, but still not a bad deal for a 3 year investment.


So, this is how the house looked before.


This is how it looks now.


We know you can’t wait to get a full tour of the interior, so here we go!


The foyer floor is porcelain tile:



A gas fireplace with a marble surround in the living room.



Who’d like to have the thanksgiving dinner here? Look at that chandelier!



Look at that huge island!



Another fireplace in the family room.



And another in the master bedroom!



Have we mentioned the large walk-in closet and the ensuite bathroom with heated floors?




The den has built in storage.



And the basement / rec room comes with a built-in wet bar and… another fire place!




What do you think? Building a house from scratch requires a big commitment, emotional and financial, but have you ever considered buying to renovate? Many of our clients and even ourselves did. We’d love to hear your experience, if you did it too, or to answer all your questions if you’re thinking about it!
