Pieces of historical French panache

Relaxed elegance abounds at One Eleven Forsythe in Oakville.

Located at the edge of Sixteen Mile Creek and near to Lake Ontario in downtown Oakville, the breathtaking condominium residence features classic architecture melded with contemporary sensibilities to create an elegant look that doesn’t feel constricting.

Styling accents take their cue from a sense of historical French panache, particularly Louis XV, though made contemporary through choice of modern fabrics and materials.

“It’s more modern than traditional. Everything has that touch of traditional but it’s been cleaned up and contemporized,” said Eva Beeckman, senior designer at the Art Shoppe for One Eleven Forsythe.

A touch of English Regency styling can also be felt throughout, from the gorgeous marble main hallway to the ornate, gold-highlighted desk and empire chair in the den area. Sleek-lined sofas and wing chairs highlight the living room’s sense of understated luxury.

“We wanted to show a less cluttered approach. We didn’t go with large, super-upholstered sofas — everything is very sleek and elegant,” Beeckman said.

The expansive master bedroom shows off the benefits of elegantly outfitted wide space and the tastefully finished kitchen, with rich granite throughout, takes the open-concept approach to create a space that is equal parts elegant and inviting.

“The kitchen is really open and airy. It’s got that relaxed elegance that’s not totally formal, it’s dressed down,” Beeckman said.

With landscaped paths snaking throughout the extensive grounds and leading to the creek and a fully equipped gym that includes yoga and stretching areas, One Eleven Forsythe’s elegance extends to fitness and fun.

One Eleven Forsythe is aiming squarely at an upscale clientele, especially more mature Oakville residents who want to enjoy the simplicity of a condominium without compromising on luxury and sophistication. “It is a home on a different level but it is still a home. There is still a sense of community here,” Beeckman said.
