With lake views and lake breezes this Olde Oakville character home has been renovated with taste and consideration for its intrinsic character. It is just a few steps to the lake and on a private treed lot with great parking and a large double car garage both rare for this area. This in-town home will appeal to families and those who like to entertain. The spacious formal living room has lake views and beside it is the separate dining room which can accommodate a very large dining table for big family celebrations. Walk through to the gourmet kitchen and be amazed by the unique and stunning zinc topped 25' x 18' centre island. Quality cabinetry with stone countertops and high end appliances. Off the kitchen is the eat-in area, great for a harvest table. Walkout from the kitchen to the limestone patio which has a fire pit and seating. A year round sun room is perfect for morning coffee and cozy around the fireplace in winter. There is also a separate family room for the television with bookshelves for the bibliophile.
There are three bedrooms on the second level and probably Oakville's best laundry room view of the lake! The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and separate his and hers fitted walk-in closets. The walkout from the master bedroom leads to a private balcony with views of the lake and garden. The other two bedrooms share a five piece bathroom with heated flooring. The front bedroom has lovely lake views.
The lower level has been totally professionally renovated. Wood laminate flooring, great storage, office or craft room and best of all a recreation room that will also sleep overflow guests on custom built-ins. All hardware is imported from the UK. The unique windows are made from custom ship’s port holes.
This home is close to the lake. You may stroll downtown or take leisurely walks along the shore line to parks and marina, the Oakville Club for tennis or to the Library. There is easy access to major highways for travellers to airports or commuters to Toronto or Hamilton.
Parents of school age children will appreciate the accessibility to the excellent private schools in the area plus those of the Halton School Board for which many choose to locate in this area.
