Old Oakville is the original settlement of the area dating back to the 1800’s, and the historic buildings and grandiose waterfront mansions create an impressive visual punch. This is luxury at its finest, and this is probably Oakville’s most expensive and most desirable area.
Not for those on a budget, an Old Oakville address will cost you. Townhomes go for well over a million, and your average detached home is about 1.5 - 2 million. Some of the most prestigious streets in Oakville are in this pocket, and those large detached homes sit on enormous plots of land, often commanding a whopping 5 to 15 million dollar price tag There’s an interesting mix of both older historic buildings, and newer luxury builds. The proximity to downtown Oakville has also led to newer townhome and condominium homes.
There is plenty of old money in Old Oakville, and you’ll find lots of affluent families with kids, as well as many empty nesters and seniors. There’s also an influx of young professionals populating those condos and town homes. This is a very popular area, and those who can afford it absolutely adore it.
As with most of Oakville, there’s a beautiful waterfront and refreshing greenery at every turn. What’s unique about this area, however, is that historic feel throughout much of it—something noticeably different from the newer areas in Oakville. There’s a unique charm that continues to appeal to people. Go for a stroll and you’ll see for yourself!
