ONE OF A KIND aptly describes this elegant red brick home constructed circa 1877 in the Gothic Revival style of architecture in southwest Oakville. It is situated on a picturesque, fully-irrigated property surrounded by majestic trees and lovely perennial gardens. The original owner, Benjamin Hagaman, a grain dealer in the area, had ships under charter that carried grain across Lake Ontario to the United States. At one time, the property stretched all the way to Lake Ontario.
The current owners have meticulously maintained the historical elements of this heritage property while seamlessly integrating all the modern amenities necessary for today's lifestyle. The heart of this home is the impressive Chef’s kitchen which features top of the line stainless steel appliances including a 6 burner Wolf gas range, Wolf double wall ovens, 2 Miele dishwashers, a Sub Zero fridge and a wine fridge. The kitchen is open to an inviting sitting room with a gas fireplace. The 12’ kitchen island, with its Cambria quartz countertop is a showstopper and is ideal for breakfast gatherings or completing homework. Double built-in pantries guarantee storage space is never an issue! The home enjoys spacious living and dining rooms that are perfect for entertaining guests. The family room with its cork flooring, cathedral ceiling and walk-out to the back garden is ideal for relaxing, watching TV or simply gazing out the windows at the many songbirds and lush vegetation.
On the second level, the master bedroom with its original refinished wideplank flooring, private staircase to the kitchen and custom built-in closet is set apart from the other 3 bedrooms on the floor, making it very private. No detail has been spared in the 6-piece spa-like marble master ensuite. The BainUltra Chromatherapy extra-large tub with heated backrest, self-cleaning jets and a Grohe freestanding faucet provides the ultimate in relaxation. The oversize shower features Grohe rain showerhead, spray jets and handheld showerhead and a seat along with an illuminated blue light French drain. The custom built cabinets showcase dual Ronbow sinks, Cambria quartz countertop and Grohe taps. An additional luxurious touch are the twin heated towel racks. All bathroom floors in the home are heated.
Outdoors, a saltwater gunite Gib-San pool and the Jacuzzi hot-tub add to the serene quality of the back gardens and patio. The built-in Viking barbecue and quartz countertop make it easy to entertain here as there is plenty of room for alfresco cooking and dining. The cabana contains a Kitchenaid stainless steel fridge and a 2-piece seasonal bathroom.
The owners have installed a "50-year" cedar shake roof (2011), new 200 amp electrical panel (2014), new furnace and air-conditioning unit (2016), new Bosch tankless water heater (2016), new digital pool heater (2015) and new variable-speed pool pump (2015).
Pride of ownership is evident throughout this historical gem. A unique home is both a private retreat and a public statement.
