Toronto’s country estates in the city

After the sale of Conrad Black’s mansion provided indication of interest in Toronto’s real estate market, The Steeple Times features a similarly spectacular property in nearby Etobicoke

 

Last month, one-time media magnate and ex-jailbird Lord Black pulled off the extraordinary feat of selling his 23,000 square foot Bride Path, Toronto mansion for £9.1 million (CAD $16.5 million, US $12.9 million or €11.4 million) whilst managing to retain residency.

 

Toronto’s country estates in the city – 37 Edgehill Road, Etobicoke, Toronto, Ontario, M9A4N1, Canada – £3.8 million (CAD $7 million, US $5.5 million or €4.8 million) – Lord and Lady Black – Conrad Black and Barbara Amiel – 26 Park Circle Lane, North York – £9.1 million (CAD $16.5 million, US $12.9 million or €11.4 million)
Toronto’s country estates – Conrad Black and Barbara Amiel will remain in their Toronto mansion despite having sold it for £9.1 million in March 2016

 

First listed at £11.7 million (CAD $21.8 million, US $16.7 million or €14.8 million), 26 Park Circle Lane in North York was built by Black’s father, George Montegu Black, in the 1950s and includes a chapel blessed by two cardinals, two two-storey libraries and 6.6 acres of land. Of his arrangement to stay on post the sale, Lord Black told The Star: “It’s a sale and lease-back with a possible buy-back, all on a reasonable basis. I expect we shall remain in the house for some years at least, and perhaps permanently”.

 

Elsewhere nearby and indicative of the boom in interest in luxury real estate in Toronto, Sotheby’s are offering what is being described as a “country estate in the city”, 37 Edgehill Road in Etobicoke at a price of £3.8 million (CAD $7 million, US $5.5 million or €4.8 million).

    1. Keep a copy of Tom Bower’s biography of Lord Black handy to dip into when you feel a little low

      Not only will you die laughing, but it will make you feel a million Canadian dollars – that’s a solemn promise

    2. The Edgehill Road property is a bargain compared to equivalents in say Surrey, England. It has a good balance of accommodation and is plainly well presented.

      Conrad Black’s house, however, is just too large and it is quite unattractive inside. He is lucky to have got the price he did.

    3. Conrad Black and his wife certainly are still living life to the full!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Two libraries and a chapel of their own!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No wonder they didn’t want to leave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    4. The irony of it all is that the end of the day he is really buying he’s own house from himself.?! They are just one big brotherhood anyway. They own the banks so that makes all the money theirs. Read the book called bullshit Britain. Great little book.
