Palatial Estate Holds Its Own In Bridle Path, Toronto’s Most Popular Celebrity Enclave

Mansion in snowy Toronto
The Bridle Paths most coveted enclave.

Toronto’s Bridle Path neighborhood is known for its lavish mansions and celebrity neighbors. Superstars such as Drake, Celine Dion and Prince have called the sought-after enclave home.

A 26,000-square-foot mega-mansion now for sale is just down the street from a spread Mick Jagger once rented.

Billed as contemporary L.A. style architecture, the palatial design is a timeless mix of classical, traditional and modern. The stately stone and concrete structure, with substantial pillars, strong horizontal lines and arched-topped upper windows, sits on two park-like acres ringed by privacy hedges and mature trees.

When snow graces the copper roof, there’s plenty going on indoors — a central garden to enjoy, an indoor swimming pool and hot tub and an indoor sports court that can be used for basketball or squash. But that just scratches the surface.

The gated entry accesses a circular drive and motor court. Double glass doors with a transom window and decorative metal work open to a coved-ceiling foyer. Gradual steps on three sides of the hall lead to the formal rooms.

The interiors, done by Gluckstein Design, are luxurious and livable. The living room features stone floors, a stone fireplace and wainscoting.

The center island kitchen and breakfast room overlook the indoor swimming pool through a glass wall. The mosaic-bottomed pool, complete with a slide, sits under a glass-domed ceiling.

There are a total of six bedrooms and 14 bathrooms.
