House of the Week: $3 million for a Princess Margaret Lottery show home in Oakville

House of the Week: $3 million for a Princess Margaret Lottery show home in Oakville

Address: 220 Pinehurst Drive
Neighbourhood: Eastlake, Oakville
Agent: Kim Saxton and Ruth Anne Winter, Sotheby’s International Realty Canada
Price: $2,995,000

The Place: A 7,000-square-foot Oakville house that was the grand prize in last year’s Princess Margaret Home lottery.

Bragging Rights: Canadian House and Home’s Lynda Reeves designed the  polished interior, which includes a droolworthy Aga Cooker and a long glass hallway that opens up to the backyard.

Big Selling Point: The home was valued at $4.3 million (including furnishings and accessories), which makes the list price a relative bargain.

Possible Deal Breaker: Though there’s a yoga room and a craft centre, you’re out of luck if swimming’s your hobby. This dream home doesn’t have a  pool.

By The Numbers:
• $2,995,000
• 7,000 square feet of living space
• 5 bathrooms
• 4 fireplaces
• 3 bedrooms
• 2-car garage
• 1 craft room
• 1 yoga room
• 1 NanaWall folding door system

    The Good – love the modern update on the farmhouse but was expecting more in terms of architectural details. Finally a tasteful practical kitchen.
    The Bad – meh on the location
    The Ugly – massive glass entrance doors gives no privacy at all

    The Realtors – kudos for an excellent presentation, only quibble with the zoning map, lack of legend to explain the codes

    Wouldn’t want a place where I have to use a car as the only option to get around. Winning it is fine, if you’ll sell it. The property taxes, heating, and cooling the place would be big tickets to pay. I don’t see a sidewalk, just a walkway to the street!

    As it is a corner lot, having no sidewalks is a positive thing. Another thing to be concerned about is the industrial section just east of that location.

    Haha I remember this home, it’s not a surprise they put it up for sale. How could you maintain a 7,000 sqft home with an average income?If their was a cash option I would have takem it instead of the home, even though it may seems tempting. It gonna take a while to sale this home.

    “Wouldn’t want a place where I have to use a car as the only option to get around.” I’m pretty sure that’s how 80%+ of Canadians live. Not everyone lives in Toronto where their is public transit….
