At the end of the long laneway is a gorgeous colonial style home believed to be the oldest house in Oakville. Home to some of Oakville’s most mature trees, the incredibly private lot backs onto Wedgewood Creek and offers stunning ravine views.
Built in 1828, this historic home holds fond memories of Oakville’s past. Originally an inn named the Halfway House, as it marked almost exactly halfway between Hamilton and Toronto for those travelling by horse and buggy along Lakeshore Road. Travellers would stop and let their horses rest for the night, obtain refreshments and share stories with fellow guests before continuing their journey. Later, the home became known as the Orchard House renowned for its high-quality fruit. Today, the large estate continues to be one of beauty and activity, with a tennis court, inground pool/hot tub, three ponds, a waterfall, gazebo and golf green outfitted with three tee boxes, two sand bunkers and spectator seating.
The 5-bedroom home provides 4,178 square feet of above ground living and features many modern-day conveniences such as a stunning gas fireplace, heated floors and high-end appliances. The principal rooms are all well-appointed with ceiling heights of 9-feet and ample natural light. The large eat-in kitchen is outfitted with granite countertops, two dishwashers, and three sinks to provide effortless functionality. Stunning ravine views are best enjoyed from the gorgeous sunroom that boasts wall-to-wall windows and heated flagstone floors.
On the second level of the home are four bedrooms and a laundry room that can be converted back to a fifth bedroom, plus 3 full bathrooms. Vaulted ceilings in the primary bedroom as well as a woodburning fireplace create a space that is both elegant and cozy.
The finished lower level includes a second laundry room, sauna and shower, office area and significant storage space.
Although the home is spectacular, the lot is truly breath-taking. Exquisite landscaping, professional hardscaping and numerous perennial plantings add to the allure of the space. Enjoy the trails that meander through the property on foot, snowshoe or on the golf cart. Located steps from the lake, this 3.5-acre property has unmatched potential. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to be a part of Oakville’s vibrant past and robust future.
