Home of the Week, 1218 Lakeshore Rd. W., Oakville., Ont. ASKING PRICE: $4.5-million. Documentary producer Philip Osborn moved to the Toronto area from Washington in 2000. He and his wife, Carole, a nature lover, settled on Lakeshore Road West in Oakville, where they could be close to the city and still enjoy a lush green setting on Lake Ontario. After renting for a couple of years they bought the property next door – a bungalow on 1.2 heavily-treed acres with riparian rights – tore down the house and built their dream home.
The formal dining room, with a bay window and sitting area can, be closed off with pocket doors or left open to entertain larger groups of guests, while keeping an inviting flow to the space.
The house was built in what the owners describe as classic Old-English style. The gourmet kitchen, with butter-coloured cabinets, light granite counters and a raised centre island, is open to a breakfast area with a view of the lake. The kitchen leads into an elegant great room with cathedral ceilings and a gas fireplace.
A large interior window invites visitors to look into the great room and out through its doors to the yard and the lake.
