Homes in Oakville
The entire Oakville downtown core is considered prime real estate. The streetscape is tree-lined, and the lots are big. Many of the homes south of Lakeshore Road enjoy spectacular views of Lake Ontario. Downtown Oakville is known for its excellent selection of heritage homes. Some of these houses date back to the 1830s. These historical homes are denoted by plaques on the front of the house that include: the date the house was built, the name of the original owner of the home, and their vocation, i.e. mariner, shipbuilder, cobbler, etc... The heritage homes south of Lakeshore Road represent fine examples of Georgian and Colonial style architecture, while the Georges Square enclave north of Lakeshore Road has an outstanding mix of late 1800s, and early 1900s: Victorian, Edwardian, Tudor and Regency style homes.
Bronte Village is an enchanting waterfront community situated west of downtown Oakville along scenic Lakeshore Road. The mix of housing in Bronte Village is mostly upper-end, and includes waterfront mansions, luxury townhouse communities and new home subdivisions that are situated on quiet courts and crescents.
At the north end of Oakville, north of the QEW, you will find a myriad of new home subdivisions. The most well known of these is the landmark Glen Abbey subdivision which is built around the prestigious Glen Abbey golf course, the site of many Canadian Open golf championships.
