Oakville’s Established Neighbourhoods

What town in southwestern Ontario is home to the Weather Network and the headquarters of everyone’s favourite doughnut chain, Tim Hortons, has the major highways of the QEW, 407 and 403 running through it and is also part of the Greater Toronto Area? If you answered the town of Oakville then give yourself a pat on the back. This town is full of different homes, apartment buildings, mixed use buildings, retail and industrial outlets and that means there are a lot of roofs and roofing options available for the residents of this ever changing town.

Some of Oakville’s older neighbourhoods like the downtown area allow residents easy access to the major roads not to mention all the amenities like fine restaurants and stores. This area also includes many different homes, some are fixer-uppers that surely could use a new roof in with those industrious renovation plans, and other are sprawling lakefront mansions and custom built estates that of course have beautiful roofs that only enhance the beauty of their abodes. Residents in the downtown area can walk to the lake and take in the marina and harbour areas in what has been declared the ‘heart of the city’ itself.

Not far from downtown is the neighbourhood of Bronte, home to a Go Station for easy access to the big cities of the GTA, and also home to many restaurants and pubs, not to mention the new marina complete with a new eatery that overlooks the beautiful lake. This area includes townhomes and condo developments south of Lakeshore Road and new custom built beauties north of it. Bronte is also a popular tourist area thanks to its proximity to the lakeshore and the amenities it boasts.

East of Sixteen Mile Creek, South of Upper Middle Road, West of Trafalgar Road and North of the QEW lies the Oakville neighbourhood of College Park. This mature area features tree lined streets and a mix of residential housing like townhomes, detached single family homes, apartments and condominiums. It is also home to Oakville Place Mall, Oakville Golf Club, Sheridan College and Oakdale Park. Similar in tone is the community of Falgarwood, also with a nice mix of places to live, all which at some point in time will need that new roof!

Historical homes and architecturally significant homes in Oakville are found in the neighbourhood of Old Oakville. You will also find luxury waterfront condos and trend live/work homes alone with high rise condos and luxury waterfront estates in this area of town.
