In the market for a family home in an upper middle class community with nature right outside your front door and a quick commute to Toronto? Lucky for you, there’s a hidden gem in north Oakville called Joshua Creek where you really can have it all.
This relatively new community boasts excellent schools, great food and plenty of shopping. If you want to raise an active, outdoorsy family, you’ll love that Joshua Creek is set amongst lush ravines and green spaces, says top RE/MAX broker Riaz Ghani who has been helping clients find their dream homes in the area for more than 10 years.
You can head outside and be greeted by a golf course, soccer fields, baseball diamonds and hockey rinks. Or perhaps take a walk or ride your bike along stunning trails.
“You have ravines and trails all around. That’s very common in Oakville, especially in this community,” says Riaz Ghani.
The affluent community is also very commutable with easy access to the 403, 407 and QEW. Trafalgar GO is just 10-15 minutes away . One major advantage is Oakville Go Station (Lake Shoreline) which operates seven days a week with express service on weekdays to Toronto and the East end of GTA. Commuters can even reach Union Station in less than half an hour — something even Toronto subway commuters can’t always do.
“In the morning, you have the faster train service (from Trafalgar Go to Union Station),” says Riaz Ghani. “It’s a fast track south train.”
To top it off, your kids will receive a high quality education at the incredible schools in the area — Joshua Creek is also well known for its schools. Both Joshua Creek Public School (public) and Iroquois Ridge High School consistently rank high in academic performance. The community also has two great private schools in close proximity: Fern Hill School and Glenburnie School.
When it comes to the homes in this community, they’re generally new, in great condition and a sight to behold with elegant upgrades and beautiful yards. Most newer homes in Joshua Creek, built after 2004, are modern with luxury finishes.
“The style of the homes is also very upbeat, modern — a stucco and stone combination,” says Riaz Ghani.
Though most homes are large two storey detached (with an average price of $1.86M), the community does have a small offering of luxury townhomes as well (with an average price of $1.28M)
Whether you’re looking for a newer executive townhome, a custom-built home with elegant finishes or a premium ravine lot with a three car garage and salt water pool, Riaz Riaz Ghani can help you find the home of your dreams.
