Oakville is home to some of the most impressive real estate in Canada, and now, you could be the proud owner of one of the most outstanding new residences in town. Oakville is pleased once again to be the chosen site for the Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes Showhome. Located at 1259 Braeside Drive, off of Morrison Road, this Grand Prize is valued at just under $4 million.

Kevin Shea, Manager of Public Relations for The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation explains why the area continues to be the ideal site. “Southeast Oakville has been our location of choice for The Welcome Home Sweepstakes Showhome since 2007, and it continues to draw big crowds to see the amazing work of House & Home and PCM Construction.”

Designed by the renowned Lynda Reeves and her House & Home design team, the Showhome exudes luxury and comfort. A beautifully landscaped 111 x 148 foot lot designed by Ronald Holbrook & Associates and completed by Coivic Contracting Inc., provides a lush setting for this lavish home. With working shutters gracing the windows and natural wooden doors, the exterior reflects the elegant yet casual style created by architectural firm Gordon Ridgely and Associates. One of Oakville’s premier builders, PCM Construction has yet again the distinct honour of being chosen to build the house.

Carlos Jardino, President of PCM and Oakville resident, understands why Oakville is the perfect choice for the Showhome. “Southeast Oakville is the best place to live. And this is the best location, the best lot, with an extremely well-built custom home – it really doesn’t get any better than this.”

This year, Lynda Reeves evoked a “European farmhouse” feel to the Showhome, echoing the charm and history of wine country. Upon entering the foyer, with a stunning wood chandelier and intriguing herringbone hardwood floor, the inspiration behind the design gives the house a traditional and stately atmosphere, but plays upon the warmth of stucco walls, earthy woods and abundant natural light.

With 6,800 square feet of living space on three levels, the house is spacious and inviting, with all the features and conveniences that the Showhome has become known for. Fully furnished, the house is an eclectic mix of country-chic and modern convenience. With furnishings and finishings from a wide array of popular product manufacturers, the house showcases the best of interior and exterior design and allows viewers to gather creative ideas to put to use in their own homes.

The magnificent great room is airy and welcoming. An impressive limestone fireplace anchors the space and large wooden mirrors reflect the light from the beautiful French doors that open to the gardens. The kitchen has a rustic flavour, with heated Travertine tile floors and plenty of cupboards, and a salvaged wood island made from reclaimed pine timber. Perfect for entertaining, the dining room hosts wall décor comprised of romantic and colourful dishes and a vintage-style table with plenty of chairs. The library boasts floor to ceiling glass cabinets and another cozy fireplace, ideal for quiet reading.

The sumptuous principle bedroom features a magnificent carved wood French Empire-style bed, and leads to a master ensuite with a double-glass marble shower and freestanding oval tub. A second bedroom has charming twin beds and another ensuite, and a third guest bedroom with an antique-style bed and luxurious linens, again with an ensuite, completes the second floor.

The media room in the basement will be perfect for family movie or game nights, complete with surround sound and a fireplace. The adjoining lounge area is outstanding, with built-in wine fridges perfect for hosting a wine-tasting. A comfortable guest suite on the lower level with ensuite is adjacent to yet another bathroom featuring a sauna. The laundry room is absolutely incredible, with plenty of built-ins from IKEA and sturdy polished concrete countertops, and a marvelous work area for crafts and organizing.

Come and see for yourself how Lynda Reeves and the House & Home team have outdone themselves yet again on behalf of such a worthy and respected cause.
