Oakville Neighbourhoods

South Oakville

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

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.

Residents here enjoy taking advantage of the proximity to Downtown Oakville, strolling to the quaint shops and fine restaurants along Lakeshore Road. Nestled south of Lakeshore Road are private lakefront properties, public walkways and parks. This vibrant community boasts annual events such as the Oakville Jazz Festival, Midnight Madness, and various Arts and Craft shows.

Olde Oakville possesses distinct Heritage districts just to the north of downtown, as well as south of Lakeshore Road. Protected by the Ontario Heritage Act, modification of homes with historic significance is regulated to maintain and preserve the distinct charm of the era in which they were built.

Morrison

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 spend an average of $1 million on these prime plots of land.

Reputed as one of the most affluent communities in Canada, estate homes in Morrison have sold for as much as $37 million. Located in one of the best school districts in Ontario, teenagers here have the privilege of attending one of Ontario’s top rated public high schools for academics - Oakville Trafalgar High School. Families opting for private schooling don’t have to send their daughters far to provide them with the finest quality education, as offered by the acclaimed St. Mildreds-Lightbourn School for Girls.

A drive along Lakeshore Rd. E. reveals homes of the grandest scale, where private, gated entrances and acreage abound. Although much of the waterfront is privately owned by these estates, all Morrison residents can enjoy Lake Ontario at Gairloch Gardens, with its lavish gardens, walking trails and art gallery.

Ford

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.

Ford offers a blend of traditional family homes as well as newly constructed custom residences. Much of the residential development took place in the 1960’s & 1970’s, with many homes refreshed over the years through renovations. Many buyers now seek to tear down older houses and construct new custom residences. Generally, smaller homes are located in subdivisions in the northern section of the community, where lot sizes are not conducive to building new. As one heads South to the Lake, properties increase in house size, lot size and in value. In fact, this stretch of Lakeshore Rd. boasts some of Oakville’s most beautiful lakefront and estate homes.

A variety of very affordable housing exists in the north end of this district, with luxury homes and lakefront estates located further south.

The south end of Central Oakville boasts one of Oakville’s finest condominium apartment buildings, known as One Eleven Forsythe.

Bronte

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.

There are three distinct areas within Bronte: The Village itself, which is home to many condo and townhome developments which many seniors find desirable; numerous older, detached homes surrounding the village (between Third Line and Burloak and south of Rebecca to Lake Ontario); and the newest development of Lakeshore Woods (located at the most westerly point of Oakville, stretching from Rebecca Street to Lakeshore Road West). Lakeshore Woods is a trendy newer development of single family homes and townhomes.

Bronte also offers high rise condos. The prestigious Ennisclare condominiums are made up of 4 buildings, and attract a large senior population. They enjoy the lake views, short walking distance to the shops and amenities in the village, and the walking trails along Lake Ontario.

Two new condo developments are in the works in the Bronte area. Fernbrook’s “The Shores” has just commenced development, and the Pemberton Group’s “Bluwater Condominiums” is to commence development in 2011/2012. Both are large projects with multi story buildings and impeccable views of Lake Ontario. Bronte is known for some great restaurants and parks.

North Oakville

The lands above the QEW highway are by and large planned communities. Redevelopment essentially began in the 80’s and continues today with massive tracts of land just now commencing development north of Hwy 5 (Dundas Street).

The Town of Oakville has been very diligent in planning these neighbourhoods to ensure that the communities are well served by public gathering places, transit systems and a web of scenic nature trails. Community Centres abound, offering swimming, gymnasiums, fitness centres, ice hockey and more. Sports fields, playgrounds and splash pads are also abundant and well situated within the various family oriented neighbourhoods. North Oakville is also home to a world class indoor soccer stadium, appropriate for a town that has one of the largest soccer associations in North America.

Many of the homes built in the 80’s and even early 90’s are being renewed as homeowners renovate to keep up with current trends. Newer homes in North Oakville boast design features such as open concept rooms and higher ceiling heights, and are generally situated on smaller lots than those built in previous decades. In addition to single family homes, more condominium apartment buildings are being erected to keep up with the demands of the growing population. Plenty of “big box” stores and other large shopping plazas currently exist and continue to be built to service the needs of the populace.

Pride of ownership is evident in all neighbourhoods in North Oakville. Each distinctive neighbourhood has its own look and feel and offers unique advantages to its residents.

Joshua Creek

One of the newer subdivisions in Oakville, Joshua Creek is an upscale community of luxury homes. One of the many elements residents find appealing is its proximity to Toronto and Mississauga, and easy access to highways.

For those who prefer public transit, it is only a 25 minute train ride to Union Station (the heart of downtown Toronto) from nearby Clarkson GO Station.

This neighbourhood is located close to excellent shopping (big box stores) and is next to the White Oaks Golf Course. Ravine properties and larger homes with premium lots sell above $1 million. A typical town home sells in the $500,000 range.

The Joshua Creek development was essentially built in two phases. The first phase began construction in the mid to late 90’s, then began to expand north around 2004. New builds continue today. They boast newer designs with luxury finishes. The primary home builders in Joshua Creek are Dawn Victoria, Ballantry, Sundial, Mattamy, National and Fernbrook - all enjoy reputations as good quality home builders.

A wide variety of housing is available overall, including detached (bungalows, split-levels and 2-stories), semi-detached and townhomes.

In addition to the moderately priced homes available, College Park offers some beautiful lots backing onto Sixteen Mile Creek, many of which are in a desirable area known as “The Enclaves”. “The Enclaves” is a collection of quiet cul-de-sacs where some of the largest homes in the area are located.

This area is known as a wonderful family community with fantastic walking trails nestled throughout the neighbourhood, as well as plenty of playgrounds and splash pads. It is centrally located within North Oakville, making it close to shopping and access to major highways (407, 403 and QEW).

This is one of Oakville’s newest communities, with the last of the development occurring in 2011. Some of the most luxurious homes here are valued at well over $1,000,000. Typically, these are the larger homes loaded with upgrades and custom features which also back onto the Provincial Park or boast other ravine exposure.

This community can be considered the west-end counterpart to Joshua Creek, as the two developments are quite similar. Interestingly, there tends to be a location premium of approximately 14% from North West Oakville towards North East Oakville, as buyers in the east end are willing to pay more for the benefit of a shorter commute to downtown Toronto.
