House of the Week: $2.9 million for architectural elegance in the middle of Mississauga (no, really)

January 11, 2012
By

ADDRESS: 1420 Birchview Drive

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Lorne Park, Mississauga

AGENT: Jennifer Rebecca Labrecque, Royal LePage Credit Valley Real Estate, Brokerage

PRICE: $2,950,000

THE PLACE: A massive, contemporary stunner in Mississauga’s ritzy Lorne Park neighbourhood (an area so Beemer- and Botox-filled it has its own housewives reality show).

BRAGGING RIGHTS: Architectural exceptionalism. Mississauga is well known for its cookie-cutter subdivisions, but this place breaks the mould: the sharp, clean-lined design was inspired by modern American (Frank Lloyd Wright) and cutting-edge Japanese (Tadao Ando) design, and brings together unique materials like Brazilian Ipe wood, weathering Corten steel and Cleveland sandstone.

BIG SELLING POINT: The wraparound rooftop terrace overlooking the leafy lot. At 1,800 square feet, it’s larger than most downtown condos and can host summertime barbecues for you, your friends, your kids’ little league teams and everyone else in the neighbourhood all at the same time.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: The large, flat, pool-perfect backyard sadly lacks a pool! Which, in this part of Mississauga, is as conspicuous as not driving an SUV.

BY THE NUMBERS:
• $2,950,000
• $23,858 in property taxes
• 5,700 square feet (not including the 3,400-square-foot basement)
• 1,800-square-foot wraparound rooftop terrace
• 5 bedrooms
• 5 bathrooms
• 3 fireplaces
• 2 skylights
