Gracious, architecturally significant estate home in one of the most desired locations in southeast Oakville. Spectacular "Gren Weis" renovation/addition. Tremendous attention to details to preserve the historical character of this home. This is a wonderful family home offering room for pool, tennis court, gazebo etc. all just steps from downtown and the lake.
In 1860 William Wass purchased a 100AC farm on the east edge of Oakville. He then contracted William Lee to erect a large and impressive home that would better reflect his successes. During the 1870's, a house of this magnitude was invariably fashioned of brick or at least of stucco with ashlar block markings as described, but for some reason Wass changed his mind and had the structure sheathed in a finely milled cove siding. An Oakville Landmark.
The "William Wass House" is situated on a near 1 AC lot at the corner of Lakeshore Rd & Balsam Dr. The home underwent a Gren Weis renovation and addition in 94-95. Over $1.2 mill spent on all new windows, exterior cladding, all new electrical, heating, roof, insulation, foundation, and basement slab. Totally restored throughout including all new doors, refinished flooring, baseboards, crown moldings, all millwork, and the original fireplaces have been lovingly restored. All work is in keeping with the Heritage Character of the home. An incredible opportunity to own one of Oakville's most recognizable homes.
