Polish up the porsche, this is ritzy luxury living at its Oakville finest. Morrison is one of Canada’s wealthiest neighbourhoods, and chock full of those large, custom luxury lots that Oakville is famous for.
Although there has always been a mixture of detached homes, from bungalows to grandiose mansions, Morrison is more and more becoming the go-to Oakville neighbourhood for large, custom-built homes. It’s not surprising that the affluent choose the build here. The tall centurion trees and lakefront views give this close-to-the-city locale a Muskoka sort of feel. Plots of land—just land—can go for several million.
Wealthy families. There’s no way around this one. With the average price of a detached home close to the 2-million mark, this is strictly upper crust. Unsurprisingly, that kind of resident demands top-notch amenities. There’s a stellar art gallery and quick access to high-end shopping. There are also great schools in the area, some of the best rated in Oakville.
If you have the funds to build your dream home, this is the place to do it. Close to downtown Oakville and with easy access to the 403 and QEW, it’s not hard to see why this lakefront locale commands such a hefty price tag.
