We love seeing luxury properties with our clients and we thought we’d take you on a tour of the highest priced properties in each of the areas in the GTA as of October 5, 2023.
These are the homes that are for sale at the top price point in their area and while they vary considerably in features and style, they are all sitting at the top of their real estate market.
Let’s start the tour!
The most expensive home for sale in Dufferin is located in Mulmer, listed at $8,500,000.
It’s a detached house with three bedrooms above grade, three below grade and seven washrooms. If that doesn’t sound like a lot of house for that price, it is over 7,600 sf and it comes on a country estate of 159 acres! Throw in the pool, tennis and basketball courts and miles of paths through your own property and you start to see the reason behind the list price.
The most expensive home for sale in Durham is located in Uxbridge, listed at $9,025,000.
We say home, but it seems like the real value in this property is not so much the home itself, but the equestrian and boarding centre located on the property. That and the property itself, which spans 139 acres! There are two heated barns, 35 stalls, a tuck shop, two indoor arenas, facility kitchen with locker room for staff and two cottages on the property. The house itself is a big one, with 8 bedrooms and 9 washrooms, but the list price is definitely based on the land and the equestrian centre.
The most expensive home for sale in Halton is located in Oakville on the shore of Lake Ontario, listed at $22,999,0000.
The home is a lake facing villa with 5 bedrooms above grade and one below grade and 8 washrooms. With over 12,000 sf of living space, six walkouts, two patios, a garden, tennis court and a 2,500 sf terrace facing the water, it is a home where the location, view and the finishes account for the list price.
The most expensive home for sale in Peel is located in Mississauga, listed at $29,900,000.
The home is over 26,000 sf of living space, with imported marble heated floors, intricate ceilings, 14 carat gold details, mirror inlay, fireplaces and much more. With six bedrooms above grade and one below grade as well as 14 washrooms, you will have no shortage of space to live and entertain. The list price is the highest so far, but with the great room with 25 foot ceilings, the indoor pool, the theatre with Lamborghini leather seating, the nightclub, the gym, the salon and more, it feels like it’s worth a premium price!
The most expensive home for sale in Simcoe is located in Oro-Medonte, listed at $37,000,000.
This is a waterfront estate on Kempenfelt Bay of Lake Simcoe, with 10 acres of land, five bedrooms above grade and three below grade, plus 11 washrooms. If you like entertaining or just love cars, there is plenty of parking for visitors or your car collection, with garage space for 8 cars and exterior parking for 40 vehicles. On the non-vehicular side, there is an indoor pool and spa, an outdoor pool and tennis courts, a boathouse, 385 feet of shoreline and a private pier. The size and finishes of the home as well as the views and location are the basis for the list price.
The most expensive home for sale in Toronto is located in the Bridle Path, listed at $28,000,000.
The home has eight bedrooms, 12 washrooms and is nestled on over two acres of land in the prestigious Bridle Path area of Toronto. Described as a mid-century masterpiece by architect John Parkin, the concrete building is integrated into the landscape, offering privacy and exclusion to the owners. It has both indoor as well as outdoor pools, two indoor garage facilities, a circular driveway, a mediation garden and more. The interior is over 26,000 sf across all levels and it is the combination of size, location and design that the list price is based upon.
The most expensive home for sale in York is located in Richmond Hill, listed at $22,000,000.
This is a smaller lot than some of those we’ve seen in other parts of the GTA, but with over 22,000 sf of interior living space, five bedrooms above grade and two below grade, plus 10 washrooms, it is not a small house by any means! The lot is quite private, with forest surrounding it and the exterior has gated circular parking with heated driveway and four garages. The interior features a soaring grand foyer with double staircases, a two-storey antique fireplace in the living room and hardwood and marble floors throughout. Add in a gym with a sauna, an arcade, stage space, indoor pool and staff quarters and you start to see why they’re asking the price they are for the home!
It’s fascinating to see the highest priced listings in different parts of the GTA and to see how they range both in price (from a low of $8.5M in Dufferin to a high of $37M in Simcoe) as well as the features and attributes that contribute to their list prices.
If you’re considering buying a home, whether luxury or just a bit below these price points, then get in touch and we’ll help make it happen!
