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.
