Downtown and Old Oakville Homes

Within a short distance of Toronto, with all its metropolis hustle and bustle, and the rest of the Greater Toronto Area, Oakville seems a world away from the noise of the city. From its beautiful views across Lake Ontario, the town is peaceful, tranquil and charming, growing from a small settlement to one of the most desired places to live in all of Canada. And just a quick stroll around the town can make it very easy to see why. Low crime rates, fantastic restaurants and shops, great school links and all whilst being within easy distance of Toronto by road or convenient public transportation. Add this to the wonderful neighbourhoods of the town, holding elegant modern architecture alongside traditional designed houses, and Oakville’s draw for not just urbanites, but people of all walks of life, becomes clear.

At the heart of the town lies Downtown Oakville and Old Oakville, where the town’s history stands alongside the modern day, perfectly complemented by the other. Old Oakville holds a timeless appeal, often feeling like it is straight out of a storybook with its wonderful charm and aesthetic. Classic architecture from across the centuries can be found on each and every street, all while only being a few minutes from the majestic sight of Lake Ontario. Houses built for local shipyard workers in the mid 19th century, Victorian era styled renovations and Ontario cottage style properties all can be found in Old Oakville and each holds a unique and intriguing story, a slice of history preserved in the wonderful architecture.

A stroll down one of the leafy and tranquil streets will lead you to Downtown Oakville, a center of activity, wonderful restaurants and amazing shops. Like the many luxurious houses in the town, Oakville has the same fantastic quality in its stores and amenities, with Downtown Oakville being the jewel in this crown. It makes it a fantastic place to live, being close to everything you could need, right next to the heartbeat of Oakville and all the entertainment and cultures that comes with it. From the freshly refurbished Lakeshore Road, to the beautiful old Allan Street and Trafalgar Road, the downtown area has plenty to offer.

Charm and character with a modern flair

A wonderful renovated property on Allan Street, this roomy house comes complete with a two-storey coach house, all originally designed by John Willmott with an open concept floor plan, allowing it to easily be suitable for family living or entertaining guests.
