What I Love
From the beautiful waterfront sunsets to the local history to the amenities and community, I love Oakville for its ability to maintain a sense of character while catering to the modern family.
Oakville Real Estate
The Oakville real estate market is top-tier, mainly comprising freehold homes and some townhomes. The average home price is approximately $1.4 million to $1.6 million. Since Oakville is home to Sheridan College, many of the surrounding apartment buildings and homes are tenanted by students.
Your New Neighbours
Overall the majority of Oakville residents are seniors and families, as the cost of living in Oakville is quite high. There are a number of highly-rated private schools here, including St. Mildred’s Lightbourn School and Appleby College. This draws many families to the area who wish to offer their children quality education and opportunities for travel.
Did You Know: The Oakville Lighthouse, located next to the marina, was first built in 1836. After damage from a storm, the lighthouse was rebuilt in 1889 and is considered a heritage structure.
What to See & Do
Take a walk through downtown Oakville and find a new favourite shop, cafe, or restaurant—or all three! There are plenty of fantastic, locally-owned options here. Take a relaxing stroll through Gairloch Gardens or one of the many beautiful parks in town. If you’re lucky enough to be in Oakville for one of their community events—including Midnight Madness, Ribfest, or the annual Downtown Oakville Jazz Festival—be sure to attend!
