This Glass House Near Toronto is the Ultimate Pad to Entertain Friends

This post is brought to you by TOWER TRIP Magazine.

When we first became aware that this glass house went on the market, I quickly dispatched my friend Laurie Lee to investigate and confirm it was not a dream. Listings pictures are flawless of course, but we had to see for ourselves. Laurie works in Toronto as a talent scout for Universal Music. Hanging out with future rock stars all day, she perfectly gets the sense of what a house needs to entertain guests and throw a party. It doesn’t hurt that this house also kinda reminds me of the Ferris Bueller friend’s pad.


Luckily for us, listing agent Janice Williams at Sotheby’s Toronto gladly agreed to take us inside this beauty for a private tour. She’s been in business for more than 17 years and ensures us that this is state-of-the-art in terms of luxury and leisure living:

Offering 8,300 sq. ft. of total, voluminous interior living space with dramatic, 10+ foot ceilings on all levels. The inspiring main level was designed with entertaining in mind. Art collectors will appreciate the appointed interior wall space to hang their prized masterpieces.

The Glass House is located in Oakville, 40 minutes oustide of Toronto. It enjoys the reputation of a prestigious neighbourhood and is literally steps from the Lake Ontario waterfront, where the breeze is cool and time stops during hot summer days.

While the intimate backyard offers its own serenity – just look at this oasis.

Among other features, the central living room with its double-sided fireplace is stunning and open. The glass 10+ foot windows allow the whole house to blend perfectly with nature outside and ensure privacy for hosting a diner party.

Oh, and the entire basement is actually a huge man cave.

This wine cellar is enormous and can hold up to 1000 bottles. Air exhaust and ventilation have been installed in order for guests to enjoy cigars inside. You will also notice the bar, pinball machine, and table games. This also connects to the 4-car garage where the Batmobile is secured.

Not too shabby.
