27 Park Avenue Oakville

This $12 million Oakville mansion looks like it belongs in the Hamptons

Park Avenue, named for the horse and buggies that use to park on it when attending the polo matches in the 1800s, is home to some of the most stunning historical houses in Old Oakville. 

Many of them were once cottages for people who visited in the summer to enjoy Orchard Beach on Lake Ontario.

"[27 Park Avenue] was originally a cottage that was built in the early 1900s and had been added on to over the years. We were the fifth family to occupy it," Realtor Deborah Cooper told blogTO.

She and her husband bought this property back in 2005 with plans to tear it down and rebuild it one day.

But the home ended up working just fine for the family until 2017, when Cooper and her husband finally decided to rebuild it.

"We really wanted to do something that had a lakeside feel and fit in with the historical homes in the area," she said.

Working with architect Gus Ricci, the Coopers built a home that looks like it belongs in the Hamptons. 27 Park Avenue Oakville

You'll notice throughout the home the use of classic materials like marble, and wide plank white oak flooring while also keeping everything light and bright to add to that beachy feel they were going for.

The home is definitely a Shangri-La of sorts but it's also in a great location.
