You will be hard pressed to find a more tranquil, beautiful and sprawling lot. This is one of the last large undeveloped estates in Oakville, located with utter seclusion in the heart of the southeast on the “street of dreams”.
Live in the enchanting English cottage style home (circa 1943), or custom build a massive estate home on nearly 3 acres in a park-like setting on a true ravine (RL 1-0 zoning). Potential to develop 4 lots with town approval. Approximately 2 acres of developable land plus approximately 1 acre of conservation along the perimeter (2009 survey available). This property is truly one of a kind.
Enter the property via a meandering driveway lined with soaring evergreens, reminiscent of an olde country estate. The sprawling lot is completely secluded and lush with towering trees, colourful gardens and a trickling stream. The long driveway leads to a 4-car garage, complete with a 2-bedroom coach house. In the main house, original leaded windows provide character and charm. The updated kitchen boasts a centre island with granite counter and fine built-in appliances. The vast great room provides a walk-out to a sun porch, bright alcove for your baby grand, and a concealed wet bar.
Two bedrooms upstairs each offer spacious dressing rooms with ensuites and lovely architectural features. Another bedroom with a full ensuite resides on the main level, currently used as a formal living room. The expansive basement provides plenty of versatile spaces, including a library/bedroom with a contemporary ensuite and walk out, an office or games room, and a fully equipped second kitchen.
Located in the heart of Oakville, Old Oakville is known for its mix of heritage and renovated detached homes, urban townhouses and numerous estate residences. Mixed housing styles and mature tree-lined streets create a sense of originality and charm. A relatively small neighbourhood loaded with amenities, schools, and a sought after downtown lifestyle.
