Inside the dream home: $5.9-million Oakville residence will channel Miami-style luxury

What if snow melted the moment it hit your driveway? Could your home’s temperature adjust itself according to the seven-day weather forecast? How would warm floors feel beneath your feet in every room you walked through?

The 23-foot-high great room sits in the heart of the home's main floor and blends together with the open kitchen.

Those conveniences are among the features of a new home in Oakville that is unsurpassed “from a design and tech perspective” in that market, says broker Steve Bailey of The Agency.

The five-bedroom showstopper, going for just under $6 million, is as smart and smart-looking as they come, said Bob Zamani, property manager for Zamani Homes, which is building the spec home in a prestigious enclave bordering Lake Ontario.

Deep tones contrast with a pale wall and floor palette in the kitchen that will include a bar-style island and built-in wine cellar.

Showcasing the latest technology, it will include lights that dim or brighten by sliding a finger on a pad; a fingerprint scan to unlock the front door; and features such as music and window blinds that respond to spoken or touch commands.

One timely innovation

Kenin advanced to her first French Open final after beating seventh-seeded Petra Kvitova in straight sets of Thursday’s semifinals action.

Kenin, just 21 years old, is seeking her second major title after winning the 2020 Australian Open where she defeated Garbiñe Muguruza.

A kitchen table discussion spurred three women to found their own wine company, and now, the three of them are vying for the final prize of $100,000 seed money on the I Quit show on Discovery Channel this Saturday.
