Influenced by Louis XIV and the Palladian styles of Europe, the 2.4-Acre estate went under contract to the highest bidder in cooperation with Re/Max Realtron Realty
TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Concierge Auctions is pleased to announce the pending sale of the Bridle Path Estate, a luxury Toronto home featuring eight bedrooms, fourteen bathrooms, a grand ballroom, a theater, indoor and outdoor pools and a tennis court. When closed, the sale will mark the highest price in the greater Toronto area in over two years. Recently designed by architect Jacques Dinel of Dinel Design and situated in the famed Bridle Path area of Toronto, the home went under contract after a live auction in cooperation with Barry Cohen of Re/Max Realtron Realty.
"Initially, I was skeptical of the auction process because it is not something we see much in the Canadian market. But I am now definitely one of the converted," stated Cohen, "It's not that the Canadian mentality isn't ready to embrace the auction process, it just that our market has not yet been exposed and educated about it. Concierge Auctions has it down right. Their reach is incredible, their follow-up is second to none, and their marketing materials are nothing less than awesome. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking into this option."
Concierge Auctions' global marketing campaign generated over 10,000 website visits from 114 countries (led by the US, Canada, UK and France). A total of 1,053 prospects were identified, and five bidders participated in the sale.
The exterior of the Bridle Path Estate features custom-designed cartouches, friezes, emblems, two-story fluted pilasters with projecting Corinthian capitals, ornate brackets and laurel leaf corbels. Elaborate rosette coffers adorn the front portico ceiling, and substantial, 30-foot-tall Corinthian columns support the canopy.
The master bedroom features double doors flanked by two Ionian columns, a fireplace, elegant plaster ceiling, and French doors to a private balcony. The master bathroom includes heated onyx floors, roughed in steam showers and a sunken Ultra whirlpool tub with marble surround. The four additional bedrooms, lower guest suite and nanny quarters, and separate above-grade in-laws suite all boast luxurious amenities. The home also includes an impressive office suite, a billiards room, a theatre and an indoor swimming pool.
"It is exciting to strengthen our international presence by achieving a record price for our first Canadian auction," stated Laura Brady, Managing Director of Concierge Auctions. "With the recent opening of our London office and our successful auction of Rai Ki Wai in Fiji, we are continuing to prove that our method is not only the most effective in the United States, but is a smart choice for selling luxury real estate in the most premier locations worldwide."
