Falgarwood is an older neighbourhood in North Oakville that is experiencing a bit of a rebirth. Developed during the 1950’s up to the 1970’s, the charactertistic bungalows and 2-story homes have long been an affordable option for families. This is a noticeably pretty area of Oakville, with greenery aplenty, and leafy streets that are a pleasure to explore.
Falgarwood homes are very much in the style of homes built in the 1950’s to the 1970’s. Bungalows often sit on large lots, so the appeal to families is obvious. In recent years many of the original bungalows have been replaced by larger homes, and there is new tide of families choosing to upgrade those original abodes. For the most part, however, Falgarwood is still an affordable option for families.
This has long been a family friendly stomping ground, and there is a steady flux of them interested in the area. You’ll see a mix of long-term residents with almost adult children, to new families, to even empty-nesters. Even though there are people choosing to rebuild larger, more extravagant homes on those coveted Oakville lots, for the most part it’s a middle-class family ‘hood.
For Oakville, the price is an extremely attractive feature for many—not to mention the proximity to the GO train station and highways. There is plenty of green space, ample box stores and shopping, and tons of great schools within a few minutes drive. I mean really—what’s not to love?
