House of the Week: $3.5 million for a Provençal-inspired home nestled in Gordon Woods

ADDRESS: 195 Harborn Trail

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Cooksville, Mississauga

AGENT: Hamish John Gordon, RE/MAX Realty Enterprises Inc., Brokerage

PRICE: $3,499,000

THE PLACE: Located in the heart of Mississauga, the luxurious Provençal-inspired house is a custom built by Hallmark Homes and designed by Oakville’s Gren Weis Architect and Associates.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: Equipped with the latest in entertaining extras, this home is all about the spectacle—there’s even a wine cave that can house up to 3,000 bottles of vintage vino. Rounding out the amenities are a tennis court, two pools, a gym, a bar and a games room that will make you feel like you’re in the hull of the Belafonte.

BIG SELLING POINT: The place is move-in ready after undergoing $500,000 worth of upgrades since 2004, both inside and out.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Despite being close to Hurontario, the QEW and the Queensway, commuting into the city will be a nightmare (but the opposite is true for weekends—the home is steps from the Credit River, Mississauga Golf and Country Club and Port Credit’s trendy restaurants and boutiques).
