A stately mansion at 1775 Ridge Rd. stands out in the township of Oro-Medonte, Ont. 

The arrival of summer in Ontario means lots of things. Patios. Barbecues. Camping. Suntanning. And, for those who live near the water, swimming.

With the sunny days ahead in mind, Wahi perused real estate listings across Ontario to find homes with some serious poolside appeal.  Scroll down to check out the listings.

We put the real back in real estate.

living room

Location: Ancaster, Hamilton
Listed for: $29,000,000

Bathrooms: 13
Bedrooms: 5

After passing through a gated entry, you’ll find what the Hamilton Spectator describes as a “compound fit for Calabasas, Calif.” We don’t disagree.

    It’s got not one but two bodies of water. Opposite the 6,200-square-foot garage that includes its own gas pump is a 17-foot-deep man-made pond, with waterspout. But the show-stopper is a light-up pool beside a pool house that’s bigger than a typical Toronto bungalow.

      living room

      Location: Whitchurch-Stouffville, York

      Listed for: $3,850,000

      Bathrooms: 4

      Bedrooms: 3

      Sitting on one acre of land, this bungaloft’s backyard features a massive cabana, stylish gazebo, and, of course, a salt-water pool. 

        living room

        When the mercury drops, slip into the jacuzzi. It’s got an electronic retractable cover and a fake backdrop to make it look like you’re in the heart of Muskoka. You’ll forget that you’re more than a hundred kilometres away, in York region.

        Your immediate neighbours will probably want to invite themselves over for a swim.

        living room

        Location: Southwest Oakville, Halton

        Listed for: $3,880,000

        Bathrooms: 5

        Bedrooms: 4

        Sure, this home is minutes from Coronation Park’s sandy beaches — but why head to Oakville’s waterfront with everyone else when you’ve got a secluded “oasis” (the listing’s term) in your own backyard?

          living room

          Tucked to the back of the private lot there’s a gazebo for cookouts, intimate seating area to entertain, and garden.   

          living room

          Location: Oro-Medonte, Simcoe County
          Listed for: $37,000,000
          Bathrooms: 15

          Bedrooms: 9

          Here’s an outdoor pool with a view. It overlooks Lake Simcoe, to the east, taking advantage of an impressive 10-acre private property that spans 385 feet of shoreline and boasts a private pier, too

            living room

            For the winter months, one of the palatial home’s wings features an indoor pool.

            living room

            Location: Sheridan Park, Mississauga

            Listed for: $3,698,000

            Bathrooms: 4

            Bedrooms: 5

            Peel region is known for some of the GTA’s more affordable real estate. This Mississauga home is not. 

              living room

              Take a courtside dip. The house’s multi-million-dollar price tag, however high, nets you an impressive backyard, including a side-by-side pool and mini basketball court.

              living room

              Location: Armour Heights, North York

              Listed for: $7,880,000
              Bathrooms: 7

              Bedrooms: 12

              Eclectic tile trim. Glass-block windows. Roman columns. This indoor pool is like something straight out of Miami Vice. Here, contemporary Toronto meets ‘80s Miami.

                living room

                The ‘80s theme continues outside. The 16,000-square-foot home’s exterior design channels a certain type of ostentatious modernism, one that prevalent during the so-called Decade of Greed — and especially in places like the Sunshine State and California.

                living room

                Location: Newmarket, York

                Listed for: $2,390,000
                Bathrooms: 5

                Bedrooms: 5


                It’s modestly priced — at least compared to the other listings in this roundup — but there’s nothing modest about this suburban home’s manicured backyard.

                  living room

                  A big wood deck overlooks a kidney-shaped inground pool surrounded by a rock feature, and a healthy tree canopy provides some shade and added privacy from prying eyes.

                  Location: London

                  Listed for: $3,250,000

                  Bathrooms: 3

                  Bedrooms: 4


                  Usually, the farther you go from Toronto, the lower the house price. That’s not always the case, though, as this multi-million-dollar home — which is roughly a three-hour drive from Ontario’s capital city — demonstrates.

                    Slate and armour stone surround the backyard’s salt water pool, which also features multiple waterfalls.
