Steps from Lake Ontario in Mississauga’s Rattray Park Estates, this Georgian style two-storey features spacious formal rooms with French doors and crown moulding.
“My favourite memories of my family home were our many social gatherings. It was also an important meeting place for members of the numerous organizations my parents were involved with. The house was designed to accommodate these gatherings and the kitchen was always busy,” says home seller Pam Lewis.
“The Rattray Marsh community has strong volunteer organizations for those that choose to get involved in this way, such as Credit Valley Conservation Foundation and Friends of the Museums. Nearby clubs, such as the Ontario Racquet Club, provide a large selection of tennis and squash programs for all ages, excellent gym facilities, pool and dining facilities,” added Lewis.
As well as the area park and conservation area, the house is also near a museum, schools, restaurants and shopping along Lakeshore Rd. W.
“The home is in a community of rolling lawns and gardens, only a five-minute drive to the Clarkson GO station … Its inground pool is centrally placed in the reverse pie-shaped backyard. When the foliage is out, the half acre lot is private and has a large stone patio, gardens, and lots of lawn area for children to play,” says listing agent Christian Vermast.
Featuring a centre hall entrance, this stately all-brick home features window shutters and a built-in double car garage.
Inside, the front foyer has a ceramic-tile floor, crown moulding and a double closet. The hallway has a hardwood floor, wainscotting and two-piece bathroom.
Double French doors open to the large living room that includes crown moulding, a chair rail and a wood-burning fireplace with a marble surround.
The dining room is outfitted with double French entry doors, two windows, crown moulding, a chair rail, a ceiling medallion and crystal chandelier.
