The big sell: According to listing agent Pasquale Sasso, a record was set with the sale of this Sherbrooke Estates property for the style and size of home in this neighbourhood. Built in 1990, the executive family home has a quiet setting with the fully fenced private garden backing on to a greenbelt. The interior features more than 4,600 square feet, incorporating a spacious living/dining area, a refurbished kitchen with updated cabinetry, slate flooring and new countertops, a home office and an oversized family room with french doors that lead to a large sundeck. The three-level floor plan features five generously sized bedrooms upstairs, including the master, which enjoys a cosy fireplace and an ensuite bathroom. The basement provides entertaining options, with a 39-by-11-foot recreation room, as well as an additional bedroom and bathroom for family and friends. For peace of mind, the premium steel roof comes with a lifetime warranty.
