B uilt before Confederation, in 1857, this timeless and elegant home is 12,000 square feet of extravagance. 124 Park Road is an inviting property that features unique craftsmanship and design. Originally called Caverhill (now known as “Geary House”), this is one of the oldest properties in South Rosedale and was once home to the former Mayor of Toronto, George Geary, from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. This beautifully proportioned historical facade creates an everlasting masterpiece.
Sitting on an almost one-acre ravine lot, this property is secluded, yet moments away, from the finest shops and restaurants Toronto has to offer. Initially consisting of one storey, the now three storey property includes a sweeping veranda that cradles the front and side of the house.
Featuring a tunnel that meanders from the main house to the coach house at the back, the spacious and beautifully designed passageway feels more like a linear gallery.
Fully surrounded by trees and privacy, the secluded backyard includes a swimming pool and drops down into a ravine where there is room for a small soccer pitch, or ice hockey rink in the winter.
The beautifully wood-panelled library could be straight out of a whodunit, while the games complex in the basement includes a full spa, a ball hockey court and a wine cellar. Despite being made up of five bedrooms and nine bathrooms, this home still retains a cozy feel.
Using a global marketing strategy directed towards international clientele, realtors Richard Silver and Jim Burtnick from Sotheby’s International Realty, believe there are multiple buyers out there who are seeking the ultimate luxurious space and 124 Park Road would be a perfect fit. With a strategic marketing plan in action, they are looking for the perfect family to call this stunning property home.
