Asking price drops by massive amount for former Mississauga mayor Hazel McCallion’s house

Those interested in buying the Streetsville-area home where former Mississauga mayor and Canadian political icon Hazel McCallion lived for nearly four decades won’t have to dig into their pockets as deeply to do so now that the asking price has dropped by nearly $400,000.
Initially listed on April 17 at just under $3 million ($2.99 million), the Charnwood Cres. home described as a “once in a lifetime signature property” can now be had for $2,599,800.
The price of the home, which has now been on the market for 53 days, was dropped last week.
Fittingly, the two-storey detached home offers a stunning backyard view of the impressive Mississauga skyline “Hurricane Hazel” helped create during her 36 years at the helm.
Prior to her death on Jan. 29 at the age of 101, McCallion had lived in the house for some 36 years, part of that time spent with her husband, Sam, who died in 1997.
The listing by Hodgins Realty Group, which appears on Realtor.ca, notes that it’s a stunning, iconic, four-bedroom, three-bathroom home with an in-ground pool and cherished gardens “befitting our beloved Hurricane Hazel,” a reference to the former mayor’s widely known moniker.

Referring to the near-half-acre, well-manicured property as “breathtaking,” the listing goes on to describe the home as featuring a “dignitary-worthy vaulted great room” and a six-car driveway.
Within a short stroll of river trails, schools, shops and dining, the home is updated throughout and “move-in ready.”
