Perfect lifestyle home in Old Oakville, one home from the lake. This much photographed cottage, originally a sea captain's home, is very deceiving, with cozy street charm giving way to a much larger home than you might imagine. There are three stories at the rear, with lake views & private terraces overlooking the in-ground pool. 3364 sq ft of finished living space; 1911 on the main & second floors, & 1453 on the above-grade lower level. Wonderful renovations have created a home with real character, while adding true stylish flair. Great for down-sizers - nice separation between the master bedroom & separate living space for guests, in-laws or older kids. High quality finishes, wonderful feel & flow, great entertainment spaces indoors & out. The living room belongs in Architectural Digest, with soaring beamed ceiling, large open gas fireplace, wonderful natural light & high-quality built-ins. Lovely chef's kitchen, with lots of counter space, beautiful garden views & cozy breakfast area with gas fireplace. The dining room can seat a crowd! You will not want to leave the incredible master retreat! The spacious secondary living area offers 2 bedrooms & 2 baths, television area, dining area, entertainment bar, & walkout to pool. Renovations in the last year include new gas fireplace insert & built-ins in the living room, all new decks with glass railings, & some exterior building improvements that are not visible. Not to be missed. Call today for a viewing.
