O riginally completed in 2006, following five years of careful contemplation, planning and construction, Chelster Hall is evocative of the great country castles of England. Built to look over 100 years old, this impressive estate is truly classic and timeless with no detail left to chance. This magnificent 43,850 square foot English country mansion is set on 10 acres of country club lawns and four season gardens, directly on Lake Ontario waterfront.
Located in a prestigious East Oakville neighbourhood, this property includes a completely independent housekeeper’s residence, a hidden 12-car underground parking facility and has the ability to land a helicopter on the grounds. After a long day, relax in the 2-storey library and private study, take a dip in either of the indoor or outdoor pools, unwind in the hot tub and sauna or work on your fitness in the superb home gym or play tennis at the west end of the property.
Paul Maranger and Christian Vermast, the real estate agents selling this spectacular home, explained that the properties gem would have to be the view from the covered veranda overlooking the lake. Set back far enough so that there are no cold lake front winds, you can enjoy the unparalleled view as you watch the sailboats float by.
“Our first reaction as we entered the long driveway, left us breathless. Just being on the property is an experience it itself. Although the residence is grand, the atmosphere is extremely calming.” - Paul Maranger and Christian Vermast, Real Estate agents
Another unique addition to this property is the private chapel for family weddings. Dedicated to St. Francis of Assissi, this chapel is a very peaceful place for people of all religions to meditate, contemplate, or pray. Located in a separate building on the property, the chapel also includes a full basement.
When asked if they were able to only show one aspect of this home, Paul Maranger and Christian Vermast explained that it would have to be the billiards room with its hotel grade bar. Filled with elegance, this room is a great place to relax, have a cocktail, or play a game of pool. While perfectly reflecting the theme of the home, it is also a space begging to be filled with conversation and laughter from friends.
Employing a multi-faceted marketing campaign to target mainly international buyers, Paul Maranger and Christian Vermast are in search of a buyer who is looking to celebrate their successful life accomplishments while truly appreciating every stunning feature of this home. Chelster Hall is a world-class residence to celebrate the very best that life has to offer.
