The place

A four-plus-three-bedroom, five-bathroom detached in Mississauga East. The home comes with a three-car garage plus room for 12 more cars on the driveway. It’s a short drive from Pearson airport and a 30-minute haul downtown via the 427 and the QEW.

The history 

In 2017, a family bought the two-bedroom bungalow that once stood on this plot for $801,000. They partnered with Elan Design Studio and tore it down to build this new 7,800-square-foot house, inspired by the ski chalets of Mont-Tremblant.

The tour 

The façade is defined by its Douglas fir front porch. The door on the left leads to the mudroom and garage while the one on the right leads to the main home.

Inside, a skylight illuminates the foyer, which is lined with porcelain tiles.

The foyer has a skylight and Italian porcelain floors.

To the right of the front door is the open-concept living and dining room, fitted with a porcelain-slab gas fireplace and recessed lighting.

Here's the first of four fireplaces spread throughout the home.

The dining area comes with a coffered ceiling. Its current table seats 10, but there’s space for a larger one.

Coffer ceilings add drama and provide the illusion of more height.

The family room features 18-foot ceilings with Douglas fir beams. The stone fireplace is equipped with a reclaimed-wood mantle—formerly a structural beam in the original bungalow. Then there’s the cantilevered staircase, with integrated lighting and glass railings.

The family room's staircase is cantilevered and illuminated by LED lights.

In the kitchen: a quartz island and backsplash, integrated lighting, and storage galore. Those brass-handled bottom panels were designed to look like concrete.

Most of the appliances here—an induction cooktop with a vertical hood, two wall ovens and a built-in coffee maker—are Miele, except for the Thermador fridge.

This is the marine-themed powder room, with funky hexagonal tiles.

Now for that mudroom, which comes with lots of built-in storage and a comfy bench.

Across from the mudroom is the first of three laundry rooms.

Here’s that private balcony—275 square feet, with glass railings and granite flooring. Squint and you can see the Marilyn Monroe towers in the distance.

The main ensuite comes with a double floating vanity, a glass steam shower, a soaker tub, a wall-hung toilet and heated floors.

The basement has been fashioned as a rec room but could be converted into a separate rental unit. It has a walkout to a granite patio and a porcelain-slab gas fireplace.

Here’s the garden office, which uses the same design elements as the main house.

The garden office is like a mini version of the main house.

It comes with three tilt-and-turn European windows and a wooden feature wall.
