Welcome to 1525 Warren Drive, a magnificent French Chateau-inspired custom home in the coveted Morrison neighbourhood of southeast Oakville.
Nestled on a 100’ x 150’ lot, gorgeous perennial gardens and meticulously trimmed hedges accentuate its rounded natural stone front courtyard and fountain, as well as the arched portico - while a triple wide concrete driveway has declining access to the oversized underground double garage.

A recessed centre dome at the top of its soaring 17’ ceiling is illuminated by perimeter lighting and an exquisite chandelier, while ornate custom plaster mouldings separate the main and upper levels.
On either side of the foyer are arched entries into the formal entertaining spaces. The elegant living room showcases a waffled ceiling with custom plaster moldings, as well as a rough-in for a gas fireplace - while arched display niches complement the archways to both of the formal rooms.

Cabinetry and arched art niches with accent lighting frame a built-in pre-cast fireplace in the sunken Great Room, which is wired for a plasma TV, security system, and internet.
