Rare opportunity to own the most prestigious home in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Spectacular family estate in Old Towne boasts over 15,000 sq ft of living space, sumptuous interiors and stunning grounds

This stately home, located in the picturesque and historic town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, is a study in unparalleled luxury, with impeccable craftsmanship and the finest details on display at every turn. 

472 Gage Street is a classic, Georgian-style residence that has been featured in Canadian House and Home. It offers 6 bedrooms, 10 baths and 15,700 sq ft of living space. The most prestigious property in Niagara-on-the-Lake, it sits on nearly an acre of land, just steps to the lake. It is a gorgeous home, warm and inviting, custom designed with exquisite attention to detail—at once a true family home and an entertainer’s dream. 


The main floor features an array of thoughtfully conceived spaces, including an office, a formal living room with coffered ceilings, a fireplace and walkouts, a dining room with a bay window and fireplace, and a magnificent games room with a wet bar and fireplace, panelled in rich mahogany. The chef's kitchen includes a large island, Miele professional-grade appliances and a butler’s pantry. Walkouts lead to a four-season sunporch and a custom greenhouse and conservatory, which in turn lead to an outdoor fireplace, manicured gardens, lighted stone pathways and iron gates, all very private. The home’s grounds unfold in the most intuitive way. 




Upstairs, the stunning, large, mahogany-panelled office includes a fireplace and a private two-piece bath. The luxurious and airy primary suite has a sitting room, sunroom, panelled walk-in closet and six-piece ensuite. Each of the five bedrooms include ensuites. Enjoy the oversized fitness room and the convenient second floor laundry.  

The lower level offers additional living space for the family and features a craft room with built-in cabinetry, a sunken family room with a gas fireplace and 10’ ceilings, a billiards room and a breathtaking, temperature-controlled, 1000-bottle custom wine cellar. One spectacular feature of this home is the indoor pool house with an 18’x40’ saltwater pool enclosed in imported Jerusalem limestone; this space boasts a copper roof and skylights, soaring 13’ arched windows, a hot tub, his/her change rooms each with a three-piece bath, speakers, wet bar, fridge, dishwasher, and mahogany windows and doors that open to the garden and patio. 





Outdoors, the 40’x80’ rink easily converts to a paddle ball court for seasonal use. The brick Field House has a change room, three-piece bath, wood-burning fireplace and a studio upstairs. Enjoy the heated four-car garage with two sinks and floor drains.  

The home features the very latest technology, including extensive A/C systems, multiple LED screens, smart home lighting and sound, TV and cameras.
