Stay Tuned As We Unveil The Houses On The 2017 St. Andrew’s Christmas House Tour!!!
Take A Look At The Houses From The 2015 St. Andrew’s Christmas House Tour
The Trafalgar Home
When Oakville was still a small town on the shores of Lake Ontario in 1950, the Lindt family purchased a rambling 23 room old cottage for $10,000. Plum’s mother, Ann, named the home, “Point O View” after settling in with her family of five children. It has become a landmark in Oakville as the subject of the recent memoir by Plum Johnson, “They Left Us Everything.”
The King Street Home
Church bells are ringing for this classic 1920’s Dutch Colonial house. Situated across the street from St. Andrew’s Church, it is embedded in the quaint neighbourhood of Old Oakville. Throw open the verandah doors at the right moment and you can hear the angelic sounds of the Children’s Choir drift through the rooms.
The Pine Avenue Home
This charming nest features an open kitchen and family room with a wood burning fireplace, marble counters and an outdoor porch with a gas fireplace brim with warmth and comfort. Many fine details and finishes such as the coffered ceiling have been incorporated to add interest. An impressive collection of art work line the walls, all reminders of the owners travels and adventures.
The Gloucester Home
Sleek architectural lines are elegantly complemented by the beautiful craftsmanship of this custom built home. The front door with its double height entrance made from a single plank of African mahogany has a definite ‘wow’ factor. Large glass windows give the impression of a seamless stream of natural light flowing through the space.
The Howard Avenue Home
Don’t let the modern exterior fool you – family tradition and Christmas cheer burst from this Howard Avenue home. Complete with a backyard skating rink, this expansive house has an outdoor area perfect for entertaining and keeping young children active.
The Alexander Drive Home
The house was built in 1867, the year of confederation, the home for a prosperous fruit farmer named Alexander Robinson and his family. The front door and large porch originally faced the Lakeshore. Today, the house faces Alexander, the street named after Alexander Robinson himself.
The Botany Hill Home
After traveling around the world, this family call Botany Hill home. From their travels, they brought with them several unique objects and furniture such as a Murano crystal chandelier miraculously surviving the many moves from country to country as well as a French dining set. All these pieces are incorporated into this contemporary yet warm and inviting home.
The Wedgewood Home
Walking daily through our neighbourhood we often forget that Oakville is a community rich with history. The Wedgewood home is a good reminder of our town’s past. This house was converted in the sixties from its original barn structure. The barn itself was built in 1830 by the original owner John C. Harris who owned the property from 1823 to 1847.
