As all of Ontario is indoors under the current province-wide lockdown, there’s no doubt that most are minding their time by binge-watching the latest flicks on Netflix. One of which happens to be filmed at a beautiful home in Etobicoke that recently hit the market for a cool $5.5 million.
Located at 7 Ashley Park Road in Humber Valley Village, you’ll find this contemporary five-bedroom home that’s situated in a private forested ravine setting, and just so happens to be one of the main film locations for the popular film A Simple Favor — starring Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, and Henry Golding.
While the film is set in Connecticut, it was filmed in Toronto, with the 7 Ashley Park Road digs serving as Lively’s onscreen home.
The home boasts no shortage of shiny surfaces and is decked out with sleek flooring, soaring ceilings, bold accent walls, and glass-panelled staircases — making it ideal for someone who loves contemporary design.
Spanning 7,300 square feet, the luxury home is equipped with an impressive stackable four-car garage, a saltwater pool, a sauna, and a swanky wet bar and wine wall that can hold hundreds of bottles.
As you could imagine, the home is bursting with flashy finishes, like Gaggeneau appliances, California Closets storage areas (which can be spotted in a number of the film’s scenes), luxe light fixtures, and a sprawling marble kitchen island — where Lively and Kendrick’s characters can be spotted enjoying a few martinis… made with Lively’s husband’s gin brand no less (talk about a great ad placement!).
Diana Oachis, a sales representative for Keller Willams told Toronto Storeys it’s a challenge, to sum up, the entire home in a few sentences.
“But it’s definitely a very unique home, and it checks all the boxes,” said Oachis. “No expense was spared by renowned custom home builder Rose Barroso. It’s a rare opportunity to own a modern home in the centrally-located prestigious neighbourhood of Humber Valley.” Barroso is also the listing agent of the luxury home.

Plus, getting to say Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick once had a few drinks in your kitchen is definitely a fun conversation starter.
