Inside A Warm And Sophisticated Waterfront Penthouse In Burlington, Ont.

Set against the sparkling backdrop of Lake Ontario, it’s easy to forget you’re a quick seven-minute walk from Burlington’s main drag. Bridgewater Residences on the Lake is an impressive, new two-tower project perched east of Spencer Smith Park, with direct access to Brant Street Pier and the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail, a walking and cycling paradise. Attached to The Pearle Hotel & Spa, where you can enjoy lakeside dining, staycations and spa treatments, the spot attracts downsizers seeking luxury vacation vibes year-round.

“We’ve always loved this part of Burlington,” says Lino Losani, who purchased this penthouse, preconstruction, in 2016 with his wife, Denise. “It’s close to family and has the perfect combination of magnificent views and a vibrant, walkable location.” Having worked on Lino and Denise’s Ancaster, Ont., home more than a decade earlier, Karen Shearim, partner and lead designer at Barnard & Speziale Design was the obvious choice to personalize the couple’s well-appointed, 3,200-square-foot penthouse. “I’ve had a long working history with the design firm,” says Lino, who is the president of Losani Homes, an upscale custom builder. “Karen knew us and knew what we were looking for.”

The two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath unit took three years to complete and has floor-to-ceiling windows, three balconies, guest quarters and two entrances.
