Resting peacefully atop a hillside overlooking Lake Ontario, this striking brick residence with Queen Anne Victorian architectural elements is on the market for $3.2 million CAD. This is a unique offering as it appears to have originally been built as a carriage house of sorts for a much larger Queen Anne Victorian style residence right next door. Both homes are on the market separately. The main house for $6.3 million CAD and this carriage-style house for $3.2 million CAD. The private backyard is the perfect sanctuary with its architectural stone walls, outdoor kitchen, English rose gardens surrounding the welcoming pool and a stone colonnade temple perched on the edge of the bank. There is no better vantage point to enjoy the incredible sunsets and Toronto skyline. Easily accessed open-aired terraces and a covered balcony further enhance the ground’s charm and enjoyment of relaxing at home in absolute privacy.
The stone stairway to the beach & lake provides access to endless water activities and a resort-type atmosphere. This fabulous home’s interiors are full of notable details and craftsmanship including magnificent windows and doors, heated limestone flooring, 12″ baseboards and 6″ trim. Hand-hewn white oak beams support the vaulted 31-foot high ceiling above the finely crafted French Oak kitchen full of all the best appliances, and 24-foot tall windows provide breathtaking views of the lake, making cooking and dining an extravagance. French antique lighting mixed with novel up-to-date light fixtures add to the striking decor. The antique tin ceiling and lighted lantern plus custom wall treatments in concert with the clavos adorned hand-craft white oak doors are additional details to support the 1st place awarded in the Provincial Home Builders Awards and 3rd place in the Nationals. Access to the three levels is via a 1/4 sawn white oak spiral staircase with brushed steel & brass spindles, as well as an elevator. This one of a kind home is truly a piece of art and makes the perfect place to call home. This Lake Ontario retreat is on the market for $3.2 million CAD with Nancy Bailey of Engel & Völkers Oakville, Brokerage. The main house is also on the market for $6.3 million CAD.
