House of the Week: $5.5 million for an Oakville landmark with its own old-timey elevator
The Place: A beautifully restored seven-bedroom house in Oakville that dates back to 1880.
Bragging Rights: This local landmark was built for Cecil G. Marlatt, an Oakville bigwig who owned a large tannery and was a big booster of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club.
Big Selling Point: Living in the ‘burbs doesn’t mean having to drive everywhere. This house is walking distance from both the water and downtown Oakville.
Possible Deal Breaker: A heritage property designation means any exterior adjustments must follow Ontario Heritage Act guidelines.
