These three districts are all located in the real estate area called Old Oakville. Each individual neighbourhood is situated within walking distance of Oakville's vibrant downtown core, Lake Ontario and the Oakville Harbour. Many homes on Trafalgar Road back onto the 16 Mile Creek.
All three very desireable neighbourhoods are located on leafy tree lined streets. Stately century old homes sit amongst new custom built homes and upscale townhomes and condos. Some of the newer townhomes even offer elevators. Many of the historic homes have been updated carefully to retain it's original charm and integrity. Many proudly display historic plaques with the date and original owner's name. The Oakville Historical Society is a wonderful source of information not only for homeowners who purchase historical homes but also for anyone interested in Oakville's rich history, all stemming from our beautiful harbour at the mouth of the 16 Mile Creek.
Living in Old Oakville has it's benefits. Upscale Restaurants, Cafes, Boutique Shopping, Performing Arts Centre, Library, Lakefront walking trails, Oakville Club, Curling Club, Tennis Clubs, Boating Clubs and more are all within walking distance of the Heritage Districts.
Century old Churches also grace the downtown core. The Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital has resided on Reynolds Street for over 60 years. Construction has begun on the new hospital on Third Line and Dundas Street in North Oakville and it will open it's doors in 2015. Other medical arts buildings and many other professional offices are located on and near Lakeshore Road.
Residents in the heritage areas are in close proximity to Fortinos on Lakeshore Road and Whole Foods on Cornwall and Trafalgar for all their shopping needs. Many area residents walk to the GO Station daily to ride the commuter train to Toronto to work.
Old Oakville and the heritage districts are not generally known as first time buyer areas. Smaller starter homes in these areas rarely come on the market for under $600,000. Some buyers are paying up to $1,000,000. for properties, only to demolish the present home and build large custom estates. Some townhomes sell for over $1,000,000. Estates on Lakeshore Road or fronting on to Lake Ontario sell for well into the millions.
You don't have to live in the historical districts of Oakville to enjoy what this area has to offer. The Towne Square in the middle of Oakville's downtown is a gathering place for those out with their kids or dogs, or those looking for a great spot to enjoy a coffee or ice cream cone.
Oakville really is a wonderful community to call home.
