The place

A mansion in South Oakville, built in 2018 and designed by Brian Gluckstein.

The history

This stucco-and-stone castle on Maple Grove Road, within walking distance of the lake, was built in 2018 as a Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation lottery home, with its proceeds going toward cancer research. The lottery winners immediately chose to list their prize on the market instead of making it their own. It was then purchased by a new buyer who, along with his wife and two children, was looking to move close to the water. While he didn’t touch the interior, which was immaculate, he upgraded the exterior and landscaping soon after his family’s move in 2019. He also installed an in-ground pool and a hot tub as well as a cabana with an outdoor fireplace and TV.

The tour

Asphalt shingles and grey stucco dominate the understated façade. A three-car garage hides around back.

Large windows and doors illuminate the TV room and accentuate its white palette, which contrasts against the granite fireplace.

The current residents preserved the putting green, which becomes a hockey rink during the winter.

But, for the new owners, summers will likely be spent in and around the 18-by-40-foot in-ground swimming pool.
