The place 

A five-bedroom, six-bathroom faux château in Mineola, one of Mississauga’s oldest neighbourhoods. Outside, there is room for 13 vehicles, a large stone patio and a swimming pool. Inside, there’s a sauna, a jumbo wine cellar and a full bar. It’s within walking distance of half a dozen parks, and motorists are a short drive from the QEW.

The history 

The house was constructed in 2006. It was designed with a mixture of old world (turrets), contemporary (heated floor, sparkling appliances and super-large window) and contemporary (two-story vaulted roofs). In 2021, current owners purchased the home and kept the majority of it intact. Now, they’re moving to a new kingdom and have listed the property.
