Your typical neighbour:
Married couples with children between the ages of 45-64 with an average household income of $323,816 represent the largest demographic in this neighbourhood. Professional business owners, city sophisticates with active lifestyles, white-collar executives in stately homes.
What we love:
Old Oakville’s charm, historic homes, a vibrant downtown core and proximity to the Oakville Go Station tend to draw people to this area. Amazing restaurants, boutique shops, gourmet groceries and walkability to a large lakefront park are all a major plus. We love strolling through the historic district on a warm summer night and sitting watching the waves roll in at Erchless park. Walking distance to top rated private and public schools.
Types of homes:
Homes in this bucolic neighbourhood are typically charming older or renovated homes. South of Lakeshore road some may be historic in nature. North of the Lakeshore Road older homes are being knocked down and new, two-story luxury family homes are being built in their place. Within the last 10 years the area has seen the development of low-rise, luxury boutique condominium buildings.
The bottom line:
Prices in this area can range from $1,000,000 for land upwards of $10,000,000 for lakefront homes. Most homes in this area were built before 1960 and are being renovated, rebuilt or taken down for new construction.
