The place 

A four-bedroom, six-bathroom house in Mineola. The place comes with an attached two-car garage and a long driveway with space for four more cars. It’s within walking distance of several parks as well as the lake, and it’s a short drive from the Port Credit GO station and the QEW.

The history

In 2019, the current owners—a family of four—bought the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house that once stood on this plot for $1.1 million. They tore it down immediately to build a luxurious custom home, with work completing in 2023. The family’s eldest son has left the nest to study in another city, so they felt it was a good time to put their place on the market and downsize.

The house was initially listed in July 2023 for $4.2 million, and again in October 2023 for $4,168,000, before its current price drop.
