The neighbourhood of Ford is bounded by Cornwall Road to the North, lake Ontario to the South, maple Grove Drive to the West, and Winston Churchill Boulevard to the East. The neighbourhood is home to some of Oakville’s most picturesque lakefront estates and most sought after properties. It is also home to one of the most consistently top ranked school in Oakville, the Oakville Trafalgar High School.

House Styles and the Ford Community
The Ford area has been developed as a traditional family oriented neighbourhood in the 60’s and 70’s. Initially, homes which were constructed were of a slightly smaller scale than what is available now and this is still evident at the smaller home sites which are mostly found at the North of the community. For bigger lots and home sizes, the South has plenty of those as well as custom built estate homes which seems to keep growing in size. Traditional homes are also being renovated to accommodate the ‘larger’ luxury home styles prevailing today.
Home styles are mostly detached 2 storey homes which comes with an average of 3 to 4 bedrooms. Double garages are the norm and so are lots which measures about 60 feet by 110 feet. You can expect to shell out about $700,000 up to more than $3 million for a detached home, especially if it is a lakefront one.
Streets are lined with mature trees and makes for a charming neighbourhood backdrop which is perfect for raising a family or simply for those who wants a quiet haven which is near main thoroughfares. And before we forgot to mention, the community has excellent reputation for schools as well.
The Ford neighbourhood is frequented by sports aficionados mainly because it is the home of the Canlan Ice Sports Arena as well as the Maple Grove Arena. Walking paths and lookouts are also easily accessible to pedestrians. Small parks dot the neighbourhood and is a welcome stop when coming home from shopping at nearby shops.
