NEIGHBOURHOOD: Oakville

AGENTS: Ruben Furtado, Rock Star Real Estate

PRICE: $5,280,000

THE PLACE: This glass and steel estate was designed by Guido Costantino, the firm behind restaurants Buca and Church Aperitivo Bar. Clean lines, floor-to-ceiling windows, modern landscaping and a monochromatic palette make this home a minimalist paradise.
