“We have been in our home for almost 30 years and have enjoyed every minute of living in this friendly, scenic neighbourhood,” says homeowner Genny Iannucci. “What struck us first about our home was its curb appeal with its unique roof line, many trees and the lot size that features 100 feet of frontage.
“Inside, with its high ceilings, large windows and open layout, our home has been ideal for entertaining friends and family. Our backyard has been professionally landscaped … our favourite part is the small pond with a waterfall feature that is just off our upper lounge area,” says Iannucci.
“We often see families out for walks as well as cyclists enjoying Mississauga Rd. with its gorgeous tall trees and beautiful homes. At the end of our street, there is a walking path leading into the Sawmill Creek Trail which links to so many other well-maintained trails within the area,” Iannucci adds.
The sophisticated two-storey sloping roofline, an all-brick façade, window shutters, a copper awning over the front bay window, interlocking stone walkways, a circular drive and a side driveway leading to the attached double-car garage.
“This property makes the most of its large corner lot with landscaped front and back yards garden beds and trees, multiple walkouts, and a beautiful stone patio retreat with carved stone benches in the front side yards,” says listing agent Frank Leo.
The front door opens to the foyer with a two-storey ceiling and wainscotting.
The living room features a large bay window, a fireplace with marble surround and detailed wood mantel.
Double French doors are a highlight of the office that also has a double garden-door walkout to the side yard.
