Driving along Lakeshore Rd through South East Oakville within the Platinum Belt, you will mainly see large scale, single family estate styled homes. However, recently the Edgemere Private Residences have become the latest and most unique addition to this highly coveted locale. The Edgemere Private Residences are a collection of condominiums nestled along the coastline within Oakville’s most exclusive neighbourhood. The styling follows a modern trend with hints of Muskoka inspired cottage accentuation and inspirations from the surrounding palatial homes. This contemporary combination fosters an architectural flow that blends within the surrounding nature seamlessly while still affording all the benefits of current time period designs. The large portion of land upon which the Edgemere Private Residences have been built was previously owned by Peter Gilgan of Mattamy Homes prior to the sale to Niche Developments. Rather than following the trend of segmenting the space into a subdivision, Niche Developments intelligently decided to create a luxury condo complex that had all the characteristics of the single family residences which are prevalent within the area. This technique also allowed for the formation of a unique product that takes advantage of the lakeside location.
