LISTING OF THE DAY
Location: Oakville, Ontario, Canada
Price: C$5.888 million (US$4.5 million)
In a possible new design trend in this Covid-19 pandemic, this brand-new modern spec house offers a garage-adjacent mudroom with an ultraviolet-light closet for disinfecting clothing and other items as you enter the house.
The UV closet has six light bulbs with high-intensity UV light, listing agent Peter Torkan said. “It disinfects everything in a matter of 15 minutes.”
To better handle Toronto’s bitterly cold winters, the property has a heated driveway and a heated porch/patio in back, and all of the floors throughout the house are heated, he said.

The house is in the Eastlake residential community of southeast Oakville, a “very, very desirable neighborhood,” Mr. Torkan said. “It’s very posh with great schools and very close to the water.”
“It’s an extremely high-end neighborhood, with large parcels of land, and there is a lot of new construction,” he said. It’s about 30 minutes from downtown Toronto.
