House of the Week: $2.7 million for a contemporary cube in Mississauga’s glitzy Lorne Park

ADDRESS: 1287 Birchview Drive

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Lorne Park, Mississauga

AGENT: Richard F. Vieira, RE/MAX Realty Enterprises Inc., Brokerage

PRICE: $2,699,000

THE PLACE: A dominating presence on an otherwise quiet street dotted with traditional family homes, this glass, wood and stone structure isn’t what you would expect to find in trendy Lorne Park.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The tricked-out gourmet kitchen is at the centre of the main-floor living area; it’s stocked with the latest appliances from Wolf and Sub-Zero. Entertaining will be an excuse to play with your massive side-by-side fridge, double-oven with warming drawer and two—that’s right, two—dishwashers.

BIG SELLING POINT: No expense has been spared on the interior, which boasts marble floors, spa-like bathrooms, high-end appliances and carefully thought-out millwork that makes the home feel move-in ready.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: With all those floor-to-ceiling glass walls, you may feel like you live in a fish bowl. Alternatively, you’ll be in a prime position to stay on top of everything that’s happening in your ’hood.
