This extraordinary riparian lakefront home was designed by renowned architect Gren Weis. With natural light, flow and panoramic lake views in mind, the concept includes several skylights, a plethora of plate glass windows to maximize lake views, and unique architectural details. Circular and wave-like motifs are found throughout the home, in ceiling details, walls, staircase, mirrors and architectural windows. This creates visual interest and the harmony of continuity and flow.
This 4.2 bedroom home with a 3-car garage provides 5,555 sqft above grade, with a further 3,464 sqft in the finished, walk-out lower level. Originally custom built in 1991, it has undergone extensive improvements and renovations in the 2000’s, including an enlarged kitchen, the addition of a rear terrace, and the installation of a pool and hot tub. The sprawling, 0.7 acre lot provides nearly 100 feet of lake frontage, and all the spectacular views that go with it.
On the main level, you’ll find a soaring, 2-storey great room, with windows travelling just as high to envelop the space in lake and sky views. Plate glass walls in the office/library invite the lake views to flow through to that space as well. The kitchen by Irpinia provides fine Miele, Sub-Zero and Thermador Professional appliances, and is drenched in natural light from skylights in the breakfast area and from plate glass windows overlooking the lake.
The large family room boasts a semi-circular wall of windows overlooking the lake. Upstairs, 3 of the 4 bedrooms provide lake views, and they all enjoy ensuite privileges. Two of the secondary bedrooms boast built-in desks, shelving and window benches. The master stretches across the full west end of the home and offers panoramic lake view from the private balcony, a gas fireplace, built-in cabinetry and a fabulous 6-piece ensuite with a jetted soaker tub.
The walk-out lower level provides up to 9-foot ceilings, a sprawling games and recreation room, a bar area with kitchenette, a full bathroom, 2 additional bedrooms, a large exercise room with wall mirrors, a temperature controlled wine storage space, and more.
In the backyard, enjoy the gunite saltwater pool and hot tub by Gibsan, and a covered terrace for lounging or dining al fresco.
Ideally located on a quiet cul-de-sac, close to the fine shoppes and restaurants of downtown Oakville, the Oakville Harbour, and just 2km from Appleby College. Close to the QEW and GO Station for an easy commute into the city.
