House of the Week: $1 million for a roomy Oakville home with a backyard nicer than some resorts

For those who don’t mind suburban living and a commute, $1M gets a lot more house in Oakville…

ADDRESS: 1328 Stanbury Road


PRICE: $1,000,000

THE PLACE: A five-bedroom home located on a pie-shaped lot in Oakville with a pool and plenty of trees.

BRAGGING RIGHTS: The master bedroom has a bright walk-in closet and expansive windows to the backyard, and did we mention the oversized tub with golden faucets right in the bedroom? No need to trek to Niagara Falls for a honeymoon suite.

BIG SELLING POINT: The grand entertaining area, which encompasses the kitchen, the dining room and a sunken living room with a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows. Expect to host a lot of holiday dinners.

POSSIBLE DEAL BREAKER: Your money definitely goes further in the suburbs, but those currently living and working in Toronto proper may find it tough to adjust to a daily commute. Better buy that Presto card now.
