Inside The 2018 Princess Margaret Showhome By Brian Gluckstein

Brimming with elegant details and luxe amenities, the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Home Lottery Showhomes are never your average abodes, and this year’s house is no exception. Set on a corner lot in a leafy neighborhood in Oakville, Ontario, the 7,050-square-foot showhome boasts floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking manicured gardens, an airy kitchen with a sunny window seat and an intimate dining room ideal for family suppers or cocktail soirées. Even though this is Brian Gluckstein’s sixth time designing the Princess Margaret Showhome, he still pulls out some surprises: a wall-to-wall mural of the Château de Versailles in the living room, a putting green in the backyard and two 10-pin bowling lanes on the lower level, to name a few.

Designed by Toronto architect Richard Wengle, the four-bedroom house was inspired by a 1920s estate Brian spotted during a trip to Long Island, New York. “It’s really a house the whole family will enjoy,” says Brian.
