The ability to just walk downstairs to work is a luxury offered at The W, a collection of five townhouses in Oakville designed with work space at street level and residential space on the top two floors.

The live-work townhouses are ideal for small commercial operations, such as a chiropractic office, hair salon or art gallery.

The W, located on Wilson Street, is being built by Matas Homes. There are three live-work units and two residential-only townhouses. All have stone and stucco exteriors with copper accents and a rooftop cupola.

Each unit has more than 4,000 square feet of space and is priced at $829,900. Features include an elevator, rooftop garden, back deck, two-car garage and finished basement.

At the back of the home is a third parking space for clients. "The space will have a gate that can be locked for night-time security," she adds.

Closing dates are scheduled for late 2005 and early 2006.
