House of the Week: $2 million for a revamped modernist bungalow (with before and after shots)

House of the Week: $2 million for a revamped modernist bungalow (with before and after shots)

ADDRESS: 805 Glenleven Crescent

NEIGHBOURHOOD: Clarkson, Mississauga

AGENTS: Scott Sheehey, Right At Home Realty Inc., Brokerage

PRICE: $1,999,900 As of August 25, the price has been reduced to $1,899,000

THE PLACE: This long and low bungalow, first designed in the 1960s, underwent a massive revamp by interior designer Rob Hockley. The six-bedroom home sits on a half-acre in the quiet Clarkson neighbourhood and borders on the Rattray Marsh Conservation Area.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: Though the home has a contemporary aesthetic, many of the most arresting 1960s details, including a Hollywood staircase and a sunken living room with cathedral ceilings, have been maintained and highlighted.

BIG SELLING POINT: Thanks to a year of extensive renovations, this house is move in-ready. The kitchen, washrooms, flooring, electrical, furnace, air conditioning, decks and concrete saltwater pool overlooking the marsh are all brand new.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Some may cringe at the idea of moving to the 905, but finding this much green space in the city for under $2 million is unheard of.

BY THE NUMBERS: • $1,999,900 • $9,676.60 in taxes (2011) • 3,600 square feet of living space • 15-foot-high stained glass window • 6 bedrooms • 3 bathrooms • 2 fireplaces • 2 skylights • 1 Hollywood staircase • 1 saltwater swimming pool [gallery]
