227 Burgundy Drive Oakville

This $8 million estate in Oakville is a finalist for home of the year

When I first saw this listing I genuinely thought it was just pulled straight for an issue of House and Home or Architectural Digest. 

Turns out I'm not that far off from the truth. 227 Burgundy Drive Oakville

The foyer with a spiral staircase and shiplap walls. 

This luxurious Hamptons-style six-bedroom home was featured in the House and Home magazine earlier this year and is the current finalist of House and Home's Home of the Year Award for 2021.

The temperature-controlled wine cellar is next to the dining room.

The home, listed for $8,200,000, was designed by architect Gren Weis and built by Whitehall Homes with interior designer Hali MacDonald

The hockey room. 

Hali, is the current owner of the home, along with her former NHL player husband Andrew MacDonald, which explains why this home has a hockey room with synthetic ice.

The family room where Hali used tongue-and-groove panelling and wooden beams to add warmth to the family room.

The home interiors blend contemporary design with touches of an old world country property – which, according to Hali's interview with House and Home, is exactly what she was going for.

The breakfast nook and kitchen featuring a custom vent hood. 

This is especially evident in the kitchen, which incorporates wooden beams and antiqued brass hardware with vintage Calacatta marble counters and light cabinets.

The living room and dining area. 

Every fit and finish of the home was picked out by Hali to create a feeling of warmth and welcoming.

The den is warm and moody. 

The abundance of natural materials like wood, stone and metal and lots of character and warmth to the spaces.

The gym. 

The basement was all Andrew though.

The sauna. 

With an infrared sauna and fully equipped gym, it's clear a professional athlete was behind it.

The bedrooms are spacious, bright, and airy.

The primary bedroom also features a fireplace. 

The primary bedroom has the most divine walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom that is the definition of luxury.

The primary bedroom ensuite. 

It's outfitted with a deep soaker tub and the Calacatta marble and travertine flooring are very elegant.

The in-ground pool surrounded by perfectly landscaped gardens. 

The backyard has a large swimming pool, outdoor dining area and vegetable garden.

Another bedroom. 

And although the home is definitely magazine worthy it's not so pretentious that you're scared to touch anything.

“We built this house to be lived in,” Hali told House and Home. “The dings and marks that happen along the way add to the story of our time in the house and the wonderful memories we’ve made.”
