Downtown Oakville

Downtown Oakville

Downtown Oakville is an extremely recognizable location imbued with a historic and luxurious atmosphere. Similar to Port Credit village, this stretch of Lakeshore Rd and the surrounding streets provides local businesses ranging from clothing, food, drink and everything in between. The surrounding Downtown Oakville real estate is mainly composed of classic historic homes and a mix of modern condominium styled residences. Luxury is the primary guiding principle here with the entire neighbourhood having a very similar vibe and rhythm to Beverly Hills. With the prestigious South East Oakville neighbourhood along the east border, many residents and people who enjoy the village atmosphere reside in one of Canada’s most expensive neighbourhoods. Tourists and visitors are quite common as they come to enjoy the retail strip and lakeside park trails.

Downtown Oakville consists of several distinct sections that when combined form the multi-faceted composition of this luxury district. The main and most notable stretch is the shopping district that runs along Lakeshore Rd. Here you will find many of the fantastic restaurants Downtown Oakville has to offer. Some of the great food and entertainment spots areColossus Greek Taverna, the luxurious Oliver’s Of OakvilleMalucaSeasonsBru Restaurant and Marble Slab Ice Cream . There are also many notable coffee shops such as Starbucks and Aroma Espresso Bar. These are just some of the countless culinary experiences to be explored in Downtown Oakville. For residents all these shops and more are a short stroll away. Just past the main shopping stretch south of Lakeshore Rd you’ll find the historic area of old heritage homes and the popular and beautiful Lakeside Park as well as an assortment of connected walking trails. One must also not forget the distinguished Oakville Harbour Marina around which the town was originally founded.

In addition to the restaurants and local businesses, Downtown Oakville is also home to many famous clothing brands and commercial retail shops. There are several art galleries, churches and just a generally broad mix of niche interest suppliers. Downtown Oakville is also host to several different events and celebrations that occur throughout the year. The Downtown Oakville Midnight Madness event is one of the most popular where all the local shops and restaurants open their doors late and hold a large exhibition of great shopping and amazing food for everyone to enjoy. The central square offers a skating rink throughout the winter months and there are many holiday oriented celebrations. This amazing focus on community events helps make Downtown Oakville a truly unique community that is close knit and offers an amazing lifestyle. Those looking to enjoy both the finer things, a safe and family oriented neighbourhood with all the bells and whistles of deep history and modern charm, Downtown Oakville is the place to be.

Community: West Harbour / Kerr Village

The West Harbour area within Downtown Oakville is an interesting section that has gone through a luxury imbued transformation in recent years. The area just west of Sixteen Mile Creek is considered West Harbour proper while the stretch of restaurants and shops along Kerr St heading north to south is regarded as Kerr Village. Previously this area was not as thriving but in recent years it has become the more younger focused and artistic portion of Downtown Oakville. Real estate price points are slightly lower than the main Old Oakville section and combined with the renovations for the Kerr Village shops it has brought in a fresh demographic.

Community: Old Oakville

Old Oakville, sometimes spelled as Olde Oakville is Downtown Oakville’s most recognizable area. Here you will find the historic heritage homes and a predominantly high end selection of real estate. This is also the most premium portion of Downtown Oakville given its proximity to the central shopping strip along Lakeshore Rd. The Old Oakville real estate is distinguished by the narrow streets, some of which lack sidewalks and the mature trees that embody the classical architecture throughout. Strolling the streets and parks you will come across many plaques depicting the historical significance of some of Old Oakville’s beautiful homes.

Real estate has a very strong human element. Aside from value appreciation, build quality and location based analysis, there is the lifestyle factor. As an example, certain real estate works better for seniors, while other locations and products are better for young professionals. Our lifestyles categories allow for people to take a more human approach to finding properties.
