Scrub Your Pup in This Rosedale Mansion's Dog Shower

Curbed Toronto's Monday Mansion feature examines the most interesting mega homes on the market around Toronto. Have a listing in mind that we're missing? Send it to the tipline at toronto@curbed.com.


This six-bedroom, seven-bathroom Rosedale mansion's decor is a weird mix of traditional, tribal and contemporary, like a Restoration Hardware catalogue showroom. The kitchen isn't huge, but there's a professional-sized range, and multiple built-in refrigerators practically guarantee you'll never find the milk on the first try. The main floor also has a family room, a maple-panelled study, and the master suite, with a separate dressing room and a walk-out to the lush gardens and the pool area. In the basement there's a media room, the gym, and that rarest of amenities, a doggy shower (you never knew you needed one, but now you must have one). The house is listed for $12,880,000.

In addition to the tastefully-neutral wing chairs and slipcovered sofas there are African sculptures, Kilim cushions, Brazilian hardwood floors, and what appears to be a console table made from pair of elephant tusks (really? are those even legal?). The home's centrepiece is the two-storey rotunda, which would be the perfect setting for a James-Bond-style fight; it would of course end with the bad guy speared on the tusks below.
