15 Oakley Place - YORK MILLS, TORONTO (1 Comment)
It was an impressive house but I thought they could have sprung for some flowers and maybe some throw pillows or something to add a bit of colour, especially since it had been on and off the market for years with this price history...
May 2009 - $5,500,000
September 2009 - $4,995,000
March 2010 - $4,795,000
April 2011 - $5,550,000
January 2012 - $5,500,000
It is now back on the market.
According to the listing, the house has been extensively renovated and is a 'designer's own.
So, either she moved from Montreal to Toronto, or made this her second home since her business is still located in Montreal, or this is basically a flip.
But because the front hall had these 2 Robert Longo pieces of art...
As the house did back in 2012...
I thought maybe this never sold and was renovated instead since this was the old kitchen...
Which was great with an amazing oven but a little dated...
And was replaced with this kitchen.
Something a little more up-to-date.
But those Robert Longo paintings are not the same and according to this website, this house did finally sell and this is a new owner.
But is the owner Charbonneau?
I suppose it doesn't matter.
What matters is that this place has been updated, and though I still find the house dark and kind of spooky, it is definitely more appealing.
At a 10% increase, assuming it sold around $5.5 in 2012, the asking price would now be $9,745,000.
With an extensive renovation, the actual asking price is now...
I doubt the reno was $4.5 million but that doesn't seem so crazy.
I just wonder if this apartment building can look right into the house in the winter...
That could be a problem. But at least it's not as close to the Swiss Chalet as I thought!
