When we first became aware that this glass house went on the market, I quickly dispatched my friend Laurie Lee to investigate and confirm it was not a dream. Listings pictures are flawless of course, but we had to see for ourselves. Laurie works in Toronto as a talent scout for Universal Music. Hanging out with future rock stars all day, she perfectly gets the sense of what a house needs to entertain guests and throw a party. This house also kinda reminds me of the Ferris Bueller friend’s pad!

Luckily for us, listing agent Janice Williams at Sotheby’s Toronto gladly agreed to take us inside this beauty for a private tour. She’s been in business for more than 17 years and ensures us that this is the state of the art in term of luxury and leisure living :

The Glass House is located in Oakville, 40 minutes oustide of Toronto. It enjoys the reputation of a prestigious neighborhood and is literally steps from the Lake Ontario waterfront, where the breeze is cool and time stops during hot summer days.

The intimate backyard is private and serene, and look at this oasis.

Among other features, the central living room with its double-sided fireplace is stunning and open. The glass 10+ foot windows allow the whole house to blend perfectly with nature outside and ensure privacy for hosting a diner party.

The whole basement is actually a huge man cave.
This wine cellar is enormous and can hold up to 1000 bottles. Air exhaust plus ventilation have been installed in order for guests to enjoy cigars inside. You will also notice the bar, pinball machine and table games. This also connects to the 4 cars garage where the bat mobile is secured.
