This home highlights the best of bungaloft living: soaring ceilings and an abundance of natural light. Situated on a corner lot in an established Oakville neighbourhood, the Lshaped footprint creates an intimate backyard oasis, complete with a pool, hot tub, eating and sitting areas. The backyard is accessible from the kitchen, mudroom and master bedroom.
The standout feature of the home is the great room. The kitchen opens up into a casual dining area and living room, with the office on one side and the master bedroom at the end. The vaulted ceilings (some reaching over 18 ft) create an open, airy interior.
A key element of a bungaloft design is the location of master bedroom on the ground floor, with the other bedrooms located in the loft space. This creates a distinct division of living space and accommodates a variety of lifestyles, from downsizing retirees with room for house guests to a young family with room for a nanny. In this case, the bungaloft was an ideal design for a couple with children who no longer live at home, but want them to always feel welcome.
