Newly Built Estate Stays In Step With Its Established Toronto Neighborhood

The Winfields area of the North York neighborhood of Toronto, Canada, is made up of tree-lined streets, spacious family homes and parkland.

Among the palatial homes there are newly built mansions such as this stone-exterior estate, which looks right in keeping with its neighbors. Steps off the circular driveway lead up to a portico supported by thick columns and protecting an arched double entry door.

Arched windows continue along the ground floor front facade of the two-story plus below-grade level home. Indiana limestone, a slate roof and copper eaves are among other details.

Offering 10,000 square feet of living space, the corner-lot residence combines state-of-the-art technology, Lorne Rose architecture and Nazem interiors.

The chandelier-topped inlaid wood entry hall opens to the living room, which has a fireplace. Finishes include extensive millwork.

A multi-tray ceiling, a fireplace, French doors and wide plank flooring adorn the formal dining room. Another dining area sits between the center-island kitchen and family room, where a marble-clad wall incorporates a modern fireplace and display shelving. A library completes the ground floor.

An elevator and sweeping staircase connects the levels. The five bedrooms on the upper floor include the primary suite, which has a fireplace, an expansive dressing room and a marble bathroom.

An exercise room, a wine cellar, a nanny room, a home theater, an office and a game room make up the lower level. There are a total of nine bathrooms.

A swimming pool, cabana, lawn and landscaping fill the backyard. The three-car garage and driveway can provide parking for 15 vehicles
