1497 Duncan Rd. Oakville

This $7 million Oakville mansion just shaved $500k off its listing price

It takes a special kind of talent to make a new build home not look like a completely builder-basic suburban house. 

But world-renowned live events producers Allison and Paul Dillett, who own WBFF Entertainment, managed to take this 2016 home in Oakville and turn it into something not completely devoid of soul. WBFF stages live fitness and beauty shows across America in places like Las Vegas and Atlanta.

In the 90s, Paul was a professional bodybuilder and decorated Canadian athlete in his own right.

"Paul is a genius designer himself, " realtor Bob Wang told blogTO, explaining that he designs wth WBFF events and stages in his day job. 

"Paul designed the railing of all stairs and then found [a] supplier to custom make and installed them. [He also] picked all the light fixtures, all very unique but work together so seamlessly," said Wang.

The backyard complete with a pool that has a waterfall feature. 

But perhaps the best part of the house is the backyard, which Paul designed himself. It's absolutely resort-worthy and something you'd expect from this all-star couple.

"With time, money and more importantly, talent, constantly invested in their beloved home, Paul and Allison have brought this brand-new custom build home they purchased six years ago to the next level, to its perfection, to be a family's impeccable nest, and an entertainer's dream heaven," wrote realtors Bob Wang and Elisa Zhang in the listing

The home is currently listed for $7,380,000 – a $500,000 price drop from the original listing price of $7,880,000.
