Oakville mansion complete with indoor pool and 500-bottle wine room

Spread over manicured grounds near Lake Ontario, the home was designed by Ferris Rafauli — the same builder who's working on Drake's new mansion


One of Canada’s most expensive homes is on the market for $17.9 million in Oakville, Ont. — about 30 minutes from Toronto. Spread over an acre of manicured grounds near Lake Ontario, the 2010 home was designed by Ferris Rafauli — the same builder who is working on Drake’s $6.7 million mansion. The beauty of the Oakville home is in the details: hand-built kitchen cabinetry imported from England, intricate mouldings and ceiling inlays, a 500-bottle temperature-controlled wine room and a hand painted ceiling in the home’s indoor movie theatre. Each of the five bedrooms has its own separate wing in the house, ensuring privacy and a good night’s sleep. Here’s a look:
