32 Holyrood Ave. is a sensational home located on a remarkably private, lushly landscaped, 1.2 acre riparian lakefront estate.
Stone-pillared gates shrouded in flowering cherry blossoms are all one detects from the street. Upon entering the gates, the meandering driveway opens to a magnificent, yet tastefully understated residence. The vast width of the cedar-roofed home integrates seamlessly into the sprawling and attentively landscaped grounds.
This home features 6 bedrooms and 6 full baths, plus 3 powder rooms. It provides over 7,600 sq ft above grade. There is an additional 4,200 sq ft in the lower level, which is drenched in natural light courtesy of a breadth of full sized windows and French doors. Out front you’ll find an automobile courtyard with a detached 2-car garage in addition to the attached 3-car garage.
Renowned architect Bill Hicks designed the home, taking advantage of the property’s ample width in order to provide principal rooms with panoramic views of the lake. Warm, traditional interiors by Jill Kantelberg blend to create both elegance and a welcoming, family feel.
All of the “I want” lifestyle features are offered here. A truly phenomenal, climate controlled wine cellar features a glass wall overlooking the billiards and recreation rooms. There’s an exceptional theatre room, plus exercise room and sauna. A self contained nanny suite with its own kitchen is discreetly located above the garage.
A massive stone porch runs along the rear elevation. From here, watch the sun setting over the lake while dining al fresco. One of the more unique features of the home is the location of the hot tub, pool and waterfall, all perched out on the water’s edge.
Located only a few short blocks from Oakville’s quaint downtown core and positioned between the town’s 2 marinas, this exceptional home together with the private, riparian lot combine to create the ultimate Oakville lakefront experience.
A desirable location, this smaller pocket is situated within walking distance of Lake Ontario. Originally developed in the 60’s and 70’s, Southwest Oakville is undergoing growth and rejuvenation by way of new custom home development and renovation of existing homes.
