Stretching from the QEW south to Lake Ontario, South Oakville is a mature and diverse community. From the prestige of South East Oakville and its multi-million dollar estates, to the rich history preserved in the heritage districts, to the modest post-war bungalows and family homes built in the 60’s and 70’s... South Oakville offers something for everyone.
Whatever the price point, lot sizes here are typically generous, brimming with mature greenery and located on meandering streets. Lifestyle choices abound, with luxury condominium apartments, urban style townhomes close to the downtown core, and detached family homes on beautiful lots.
Some of the most expensive real estate in Canada is located here, including breathtaking, private lakefront residences. Happily, the waterfront can be enjoyed by all by way of public parks and promenades. South Oakville residents also thoroughly enjoy the boutique style shops and fine restaurants of Downtown Oakville. All in all, this is a truly wonderful place to live.
Olde Oakville exudes class and charm with its mix of historic heritage homes and new custom built residences. Some of Oakville’s most prestigious streets are located here - including Balsam Drive, Chartwell Road and Gloucester Drive - with estates valued in the range of $5 million to $15 million. Though half acre lots are not uncommon, there are also a number of townhome and condominium developments close to the downtown core.
Arguably the most desirable location for custom home building in Oakville, this area is lush with 100 year old trees, large lots offering loads of privacy, and a tranquil, Muskoka-like feel to the community. Typical lots are 100 ft wide by 150 ft in depth, though ¾ of an acre is not uncommon. Builders and individuals looking to construct their dream homes can expect to pay between $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 on these prime plots of land.
The Ford community encompasses the Southeast corner of Oakville. Minutes to the QEW, commuters love the easy access to Downtown Toronto (25 minutes by car or GO train). At the end of the day, they enjoy returning home to a neighbourhood rich in wooded areas and parks.
With the QEW running right through the centre, and sprawling across the full east/west expanse of Oakville, the district known as Queen Elizabeth was previously designated as employment lands. Now, the first residential projects are being developed here. Two condominium projects will be built near Kerr St. and Speers Rd. Rain Condominiums by Empire Communities will boast two towers, soaring to 19 and 21 storeys. Close by, Neilas Inc. will be building an urban-style lofted community within two, 10-storey towers, known as OpArt Lofts.
An Oakville address with a Mississauga flavour, this community offers a combination of house styles for families at every stage - affordable towns and semis for young families, as well as larger 3 and 4 bedroom detached homes to grow into. Lot sizes for these homes are quite decent, averaging 50 ft width by 100 ft depth.
In south Oakville, just west of Sixteen Mile Creek, lays the small yet trendy district of Central Oakville. Residents in the south part of this community love the proximity to the Lake, and the short walk to Downtown Oakville with all the quaint shops and fine restaurants it has to offer.
A desirable locale, this community is situated within walking distance of Lake Ontario. Originally developed in the 60’s and 70’s, South West Oakville is undergoing growth and rejuvenation by way of new custom home development and renovation of existing homes.
Modest, 3 bedroom split-levels and post-war bungalows abound in this mature and pleasant community. Generous lot sizes (60’ x 120’ being very typical) are attracting some new custom built homes and major renovations.
This community is made up of the Village of Bronte as well as the neighbourhoods that have been developed to the west of the village in the past 30 years. Waterfront properties and others south of Lakeshore are significantly more expensive than the average home in the area.
