The slow, lapping waves of Lake Ontario gently drift into shore, softly caressing the private dock extending outwards from 4466 Lakeside Drive. The quiet solitude of the moment is tranquil and pleasurable, stirring up emotions dictated by the delicacy of the visuals. With 225 feet of shoreline (with Riparian Rights), the unobstructed, panoramic visuals of the skyline on display are utterly captivating.
The two-story, 4760 square foot custom home rises up, overlooking the vastness of the Great Lake. Upon initial sight, the house provides feelings of emotional bliss. There is a peacefulness that resides upon the land, a sense of being away from it all. Even though the highway is mere minutes away, the noise is nearly nonexistent. And with only fourteen houses on the Drive, the dwelling rests tranquilly, relishing in the privacy the charming community provides.
The front of the home includes an immense, winding driveway, a luxury car-sized garage that houses 3.5 vehicles, multitudes of landscaped greenery, and an Oakdale stone courtyard.
While in the spacious rear yard, some of the amenities featured are a 10 x 14 greenhouse, a stunning new patio, a sizable swimming pool, a propane-burning fire pit and a fully-serviced outdoor kitchen. Backing the yard is an extensive vineyard with spectacular views of the Niagara Escarpment in the distance.
In 2018, the entire exterior of the house was completely redesigned and renovated (in 2008, the entire interior was remodelled with five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a chef’s kitchen and a basement featuring an In-Law Suite), and it’s clear a lot of time and effort has gone into the design of this home, providing it with a focused, distinct vision. There is a personality to it, and it’s evident in each and every room on display. A great sense of warmth permeates throughout, and though it is large in scale, there is never a sense of being overwhelmed by it all. An intimacy exists within its walls, and it’s only heightened by what surrounds those outside walls.
The picturesque Lakeside Dream Home is escapism at its finest. Far from the congested, chaotic world of the city, this waterfront property is an exercise in calming serenity.
