This European inspired bungalow is located at 222 Poplar Drive in Oakville, ON. It was built in 2010 and boasts 4,000 square feet of living space with 3 bedrooms, 3 full and 1 half bathrooms, gorgeous foyer with white marble floor and crystal chandelier, exquisite ceiling and wall detail in every room, formal living and dining rooms, family room with fireplace and 3 sets of French doors, dark hardwood floors throughout, sleek and modern gourmet kitchen with breakfast nook and more. It is listed at $4,990,000. While it may not be a mansion, I think this is a very well executed home with great attention to detail.

    I like it too! I think its charming! I could see this being a wonderful canvas for an interior designer with contemporary sensibilities.

      Oh. Wait…it doesn’t appear to have a garage. That’s a huge problem you’ve got there bungalow, especially where the temp is damn cold in the winter. I guess it will sell, but its a big compromise for someone who’s willing to part with that many large ones.

        I believe that the two large arched windows on each end of the front of the house are garages. If look you look at the closer-up pictures, the “windows” go right to ground level and the driveway goes right up to them. Plus, the snow has been cleared up to them, and you can out what appear to be tired tracks going up to them. I think I can also make out the rubber gasket at the bottom of the door.

          Hmmm. I thought that too, but the listing doesn’t mention them at all. Strange.

            I noticed the mention of a garage missing from the listing too. Looking through the interior pictures, I don’t see rooms with windows like that, and you would think they would highlight those from inside.

            Ok…if you go to the listing page, and open up the photo gallery, one of the last images is of a garage bay, and you’re right…its masterfully disguised from the exterior. Haha! Jokers!

    This is a GORGEOUS HOUSE!!! I am surprised that I like it so much. Extremely classy…However I see this as a second home though, not a primary

    I like it. It looks really well done. A little small, but at least the proportions are correct. Damn shame it’s in Canada.

          Ha! I mean, I have nothing against Canada or Canadians (Except when they flood S. Florida roads – WORST drivers ever), but I mean it’s a sort of grey country in my opinion. Very nice scenery, nice people, but its just this big thing that’s there and no one takes seriously.

    It’s beautiful. Some of the details are too formal for me, but with the right decorator who doesn’t go grandma with the interior, it could be stunning. The detailing is beautiful and everything looks like it’s been finished very well. It looks as if the two big windows on each end of the house are the garages; normally I would HATE front-facing garage doors, but these have been disguised so well and support the symmetry of the façade that they actually add to the overall appeal of the house. This is how front-facing garages should be done, not with some tacky aluminum Home Depot door. I think the size is good as well. It’s definitely a livable size, and as I’ve said before, I’d prefer an exquisitely done smaller house over a flimsy behemoth any day.

    I dare say this is a “bungalow” since it is almost twice the size of the average american home.

    I agree with everyone, it’s a super house. I once lived in Oakville, and if you don’t mind super-snowy winters it’s not a bad place to be. Summers are long and hot, so that makes up for the cold winters. I looked hard and long at the interior, and there were so many views of the kitchen that I think it just might appear in my dreams tonight! Am I the only one who wonders about that bathroom sink with the white transverse “crack”? It’s probably just part of the marble, but it bugs me! Overall, a very sweet home for a modest price. And, since the “news” tells me that a severe DEPRESSION is on it’s way…I think Canada is a “safe”place to live 😉

    Oh, and Daniel, the horrible Canadian drivers you see in Florida are all over 80 years old. They’re called “snow-birds”, I think because they are old-folks escaping Canadian winters! And, everybody takes Canada seriously because it didn’t even tremble during the last financial “down-turn” and because, unlike the USA it doesn’t owe 16 TRILLION dollars to CHINA. And because, unlike Australia, it has not sold all it’s mineral rights to CHINA. And because, unlike Europe, it is socially and financially SOLID!

      Not True! The young whipper-snappers (those older than 30) are just as bad. 55 MPH in the carpool lane is their signature move. Granted its mostly Quebec drivers, but still…use the damn bus!!!!

    Okay, Benz, the only good things that Canada has produced are: Insulin, the “Canadarm” for the space-station, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, Justin Bieber (if you’re under 14) Sarah Mclaughlin, (if you’re an adult) Universal health-care (free for all) virtually endless natural resources, Hollywood North, and on and on…just Google it and you’ll be surprised what a country with a fraction of the population of the USA has accomplished!

      I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that Justin Bieber single-handedly cancels out EVERY other thing Canada has offered the world EVER.

      Like others have said, I would keep the talk of Justin Beiber quiet, and don’t even bring up Celine Dione. That said, Vancouver is one of my all-time favorite cities, anywhere in the world. It’s truly beautiful and I would live there in a heartbeat if I could. I’d definitely pick it over all but about 3 cities in the U.S.

    Yes, my name is Richard, and I do live in Vancouver. I hate J. Bieber too, but seriously…most Americans think we live in igloo’s and watch too much hockey. But, I meant the Google comment >>> how many of you know that Canada invented television, radar, artificial hearts (pace-makers) telephones, first commercial air-liner, insulin, etc., etc., just look at what Canadians have done with such a tiny population! And, Chance …we gave the US their choice 49,50 (latitude) or FIGHT. And the Americans ran away!!
    Big tough country you’ve got there eh? 28% unemployment and still fighting a losing war in the Middle East (with money borrowed from CHINA)
    The Taliban out-lasted the Russians, the French, and they will no doubt be there when the US gives in. It’s just another Vietnam! WTF!

      If your just gonna make stuff up, it’s best not to comment. Canada’s unemployment is 7.4%, US is 8.7%; barely a difference. Congrats on Canada being able to invent a few things! Some of what you mentioned weren’t invented in Canada or by Canadians. You also didn’t give the US a choice of 49.50 or fight, not sure where you pulled that one from. Canada has never fought for anything with the US, they aren’t that stupid.

      Canada wasn’t even fully separated from the UK until 1982! Look, Canada is a fine place and all, but stop trying to make it something it isn’t.

    Oh, and I really do like the “bungalow” bit pricey, and could be somewhere warmer than Ontario… but everything, everywhere, will be cheaper when the inevitable DEPRESSION comes 😉

    This is stunning! If this was a mansion i could see this being one of my favourite homes! A little bit expensive for a price tag shy of 5 million, it needs a pool or something. The kitchen too is one of the best ive ever seen.
