What would you spend it on, if you had a spare $12 million lying around? A luxury trip around the world? A private island in an exotic location? A sizeable donation to all of your favourite charities? Or perhaps a York Mills mansion that's a 90s kid's paradise, with seven bedrooms, twelve bathrooms, a gym, a pool, and a collection of the weirdest, wackiest playrooms you have ever seen?
For anyone who does have around $12,800,000 to spare, a Toronto mansion that will unleash your inner child and take you straight back to the 90s has just come on to the property market, and it is a pretty quirky house! The crazy mansion has approximately 15,000 square feet of living space and comprises seven bedrooms, twelve bathrooms, thirteen indoor parking spaces, a sauna, an indoor pool, several living rooms and two gigantic retro playrooms.
While the property may be far too big and expensive for most ordinary people, the previous owners have spared no expenses to create a wacky and wonderful family home that is like something that most of us can only dream of!
The 1994 home is located in the desirable area of Bayview and York Mills. According to the real estate website that it is listed on, the property is “a true retreat, great for entertaining and offering world class recreational options which include, spa/fitness room, indoor pool with retractable roof, arcade/games room, home theatre, 13 car garage and so much more.”
Speaking to the Toronto Star, the owner of the property confirmed that the home was designed with family in mind. He described the mansion as “A home that has a wonderful flow to it and a layout that’s conducive to family living and entertaining — a place to make you feel relaxed.”
The residence is not only designed to be beautiful, but practical too. The modern touch-screen system that controls the whole house is enough to make tech-fanatics envious. Everything from lighting, heating, music and security is controlled electronically.
The retractable roof over the pool is particularly brilliant, rendering the pool absolutely practical and temperature-perfect all year round.
Perhaps the most magnificent aspect of the whole house, however, is the vast collection of retro toys and vintage art in the two playrooms. The incredible dedication to fun and family can be seen most vividly in these parts of the house, where the 80s and 90s memorabilia makes the space an awesome place to feel like a child again.
The home is as gorgeous as it is expensive, so it won’t be for everyone! That said, whoever ends up lucky enough to buy this funky and unusual house is in for a real treat. Invite us over for a pool party sometime?
