Property Details

With Wood Accents, Cozy Bedrooms, Carriage House Garage Doors and Bright Red Shutters, One Could Easily Dub This the Best Luxury Cottage in the City!

The house was built in 1938 as the home of W.M. Magwood, one of the first mayors of the York region (later to be annexed into Toronto). The area dates back to the 1600s, when the Seneca tribe lived here in a village known as Teiaiagon, near the Humber River. It’s now one of the city’s most charming little pockets.

The Baby Point Club provides a focal point that helps make life in the Baby Point area what some describe as like living in a small village in the heart of the city. Unlike most community clubs, the Baby Point Club is private, owned by its members and pays taxes on the Club's property. The Club's tennis courts, lawn bowling greens and clubhouse signal that this is a unique neighbourhood. It says that this is a distinct community, where people live and play together. That's just what the Club is - and does. "It acts as a catalyst to bring people together."

The home's great appeal comes from the way it is nestled into its hillside setting. An old stone wall and a majestic tree add to the beauty at the front. At the rear, the architect tried to have as little impact as possible on the ravine, which slopes down to Humber River parkland below. A stone terrace sits on the edge of the precipice. "With that view over the Humber River, facing the setting sun, there are just not very many properties like this," - Peter Higgins, Architect
