Bordered to the south by Upper Middle Road, to the north by Dundas Street, to the west by Bronte Creek Provincial Park, and to the east by Bronte Road, in less than 10 years the Bronte Creek community has grown from the former Richview Golf Club site into one of Oakville’s most desired addresses.
Goodale Miller Team members and Bronte Creek residents Murray McKeage and Andrew Kaye walk their talk where Bronte Creek Real Estate is concerned. “The thing that’s nice about Bronte Creek is ‘access’ ”, Murray says. “You’re seven minutes from the Bronte GO station, and five minutes to the 407 and 403 (QEW) highways. Our area is serviced by one new public school, called Palermo, which was built 2 years ago. It’s walking distance to everyone in Bronte Creek. They’re building a brand new Catholic elementary school, as we speak, which will be ready for September 2012. A new high school is also being built in nearby West Oak Trails, and it is also set to open in September of this year. It’s just a great family community. Quiet. Our neighbourhood is surrounded by a ravine, with probably 15 kms of walking trails and protected pathways.”
Shopping is convenient too! “We’ve got a lot of east/west shopping possibilities, because of the location”, Murray says. “Our family does our primary shopping at Appleby and Dundas, which is in Burlington. You name it, it’s all right there… from groceries and hardware, to dentists and other professional services.”
Andrew has lived in the community for 5 years, and points out that while he’s “not personally fond of ‘new’ neighbourhoods in general, this particular new neighbourhood is an exception because, when they mapped it out, they left large swaths of forest. In most new neighbourhoods everything’s been razed and there are no big trees anywhere. There’s not really any nature preserve. In Bronte Creek you see trees behind the houses that are taller than the houses. You don’t have to walk far to get hidden in the forest! If you like to exercise and go for walks, you’re not forced to walk around residential streets. You can actually go and enjoy a relatively unspoiled, natural environment, which I think is quite unique for a new community.”
Bronte Creek Provincial Park has your recreational needs covered also, with year-round activities including skating, fishing, swimming, camping and more. In fact, their annual Maple Syrup Festival begins March 3rd.
Resale family homes are currently selling between $550k and $1.5 million, while townhomes sell between $400k and $900k. Monarch and Fernbrook Homes are busy building new inventory for families.
