Timeless elegance and fine finishes are at the forefront in this remarkably inviting family home. Tucked back on an incredibly private lot in much desired Old Oakville, the exterior is reminiscent of classic European design. Full perennial gardens frame the natural stone drive and transition to wide limestone steps carrying to the front portico with beautiful mahogany and wrought iron front entryway. Not to be overlooked is the limestone courtyard with stone borders and raised natural pond – an idyllic place to sit and relax.
The interior is bright and offers impressive lush views from expansive windows. Fine book-matched slab granite seamlessly lines the foyer and naturally draws you to the principal living spaces. The formal living features two sets of French doors, both opening to the natural outdoors. And with cast stone open flame gas fireplace, this is a cozy spot to unwind. The formal dining offers ample space for family meals with easy access to the kitchen. A chef’s kitchen with custom full-height cabinetry by Cameo, with full pantry wall, book-matched granite counters and backsplash, commercial grade appliances and a contrasting mahogany island with solid prep surface. The dedicated breakfast area features French doors that open to the rear deck – easily taking indoor dining out. Open to the family room with finely detailed cast stone open flame gas fireplace and custom built-ins, this is the ideal family lounge. With expansive windows and doors, the hub of the home is exceptionally bright and offers lush views of the rear gardens.
With double door entry, the principal bedroom is quite the sunny retreat. Warm hardwood floors, walk-in with built-ins and a spa-like ensuite with deep soaker tub perfectly positioned to enjoy the natural surroundings and glass shower with linear skylight – a tranquil hideaway. The additional three bedrooms are substantially sized and feature floor-to-ceiling windows with wrought iron Juliette balconies and double closets with built-in storage. They share a venetian-style main bath with deep soaker tub, glass shower and custom built-ins.
The living space is extended on the lower level with an extra bedroom and bath and expansive rec room with brick feature wall and cozy wood burning fireplace. The space is exceptionally bright with glass sliders that open to the rear gardens. The rear yard is remarkably private with perennial framing gardens, a mature tree canopy, serene water feature and an expansive platform deck for lounging. An elegant home with tranquil gardens in the heart of Old Oakville.
