Globe and Mail publisher Phillip Crawley and his wife Stephanie (director of human resources at Crescent School) recently sold their sophisticated and stylish home in the picturesque Lawrence Park neighbourhood.
This anything-but-humble abode is ideal for elegant large- scale entertaining — with gener- ously proportioned principal rooms, large esthetic windows (each with an exceptional view of the surrounding gardens), and a private outdoor oasis complete with in-ground pool and hot tub, not to mention the home theatre, exercise room and steam room on the lower level.
All of this is located on a pre- mier, family-friendly street, a short distance from midtown and down- town Toronto.
This timeless, yet modern man- sion is definitely fit for a king or, in this case, a publisher. One peek at this private abode will leave you wishing it were you moving in.
