Glen Ashton Estates by Menkes Developments is a home for everyone to enjoy

Spending a great deal of time in your home these days might have you thinking about what you want to get out of your living space – more storage? Efficiency? Perhaps you want it to feel brighter? It’s amazing how much of an impact our environment can have on our mood, and during these challenging times our home is more important than ever before. It’s also our office, our school, our gym, and so much more.

The Livingston model home in Glen Ashton Estates, Menkes‘ latest residential development in Oakville, can provide inspiration for anyone looking to make their home a place consisting of comfort, functionality and style. Designer Gordana Car produced an awe-inspiring design for this spacious model home. Inspired by a modern farmhouse look – a design which has proved to be appealing to many different types of buyers – the interior design combines the modern and contemporary, with the country chic. With a neutral colour scheme (including a natural stained hardwood and white walls), simplicity in decor was meant to bring serenity to every room, something we all crave these days. To keep the design looking timeless yet on-trend, Car paired clean lines with black metal industrial light fixtures and hardware.

Both the layout and design of the home are functional and suitable for so many types of families. In this particular model, Car added a convenient home office to serve as an efficient workspace. The functionality of every room was integral to the overall design. This included lots of comfortable furniture for lounging around and plenty of storage.

Local Focus - Oakville & Burlington

Oakville & Burlington are on the leading edges of the GTA

Oakville & Burlington are on the leading edges of the GTA

Long gone are the days when Oakville and Burlington, neighbouring locations off the northwestern shores of Lake Ontario, were sleepy suburbs on the outskirts of the GTA. Expansion in highway and transit infrastructure, economic and employment growth and new housing development are all contributing to what today are booming, self-sustaining, destinations.

Such growth and development also mean rising home prices, as these two markets are forecast to be among the hottest in Ontario this year.

Blessed locations

Blessed with strong natural locations close to the lake, the QEW, Dundas Street West and Hwys. 403 and 401, getting to and around Oakville and Burlington has never been a challenge. But recent improvements to transit service and highways have afforded even easier movement for businesses and residents.

Such growth has contributed to increasingly diverse local economies, strong in automotive and manufacturing, but not overly reliant on any one sector.

Besides being close to Lake Ontario to the south, and the Niagara Escarpment to the north, Burlington is also home to the Royal Botanical Gardens. It boasts more than 2,700 acres of gardens and nature sanctuaries, the world’s largest lilac collection and three on-site restaurants.

Down by the lake, the recently renovated Spencer Smith Park hosts an array of annual free festivals, including Canada’s largest Ribfest, the Sound of Music Festival, Children’s Festival and Lakeside Festival of Lights.

Similarly, Oakville boasts 3,500 acres of parkland, more than 300 kilometres of trails and more than 200 parks, gardens, off-leash dog parks, playgrounds, skateboard parks, splash pads, sports fields, tennis courts, two harbours and 31 waterfront parks.

For cultural pursuits, Oakville has the Oakville Centre for the Performing Arts, and the Downtown Oakville Jazz Festival is an annual summer event that features a number of stages along Lakeshore Road East. The Waterfront Festival takes place in Coronation Park, including amusement rides, arts and crafts, food and drinks, concerts and nightly fireworks displays.

With so much development underway, it’s no surprise that more people are moving west – particularly those looking for more affordable homes than in Toronto. Residence here, however, has its price: Oakville is now one of the GTA’s priciest housing markets. Burlington is seeing its own home price growth spurt, though it is notably more affordable.

Burlington, in particular, is undergoing a change of sorts. In the 2018 municipal elections, residents voted in Marianne Meed Ward as new mayor, notably on her promise to address their concerns about over-intensification and development.

Location, location, location

  • Oakville population 192,832; Burlington 185,000, located in Halton Region at the northwestern end of Lake Ontario
  • Oakville distance from Toronto, 38 kms; Burlington, 60 km
