Oakville real estate guide & listings for sale
The character of Oakville is exemplified by its slower-paced ambience. Most locations in the town have fairly good access to parks, such as The Parkway and Fourteen Mile Creek Trail, since there are over 350 of them nearby for residents to discover and getting to the closest park from most properties for sale is easy. This part of the Toronto metropolitan area is reasonably quiet overall, as the streets are usually tranquil - although there are still several louder sections, especially closer to Highway 403, Highway 407 or the railway line.
Travelling by car is very easy in Oakville. It is very convenient to park, and nearby highways, such as Highway 403, are easy to reach from anywhere in Oakville. However, the public transit service in this part of the Toronto metropolitan area is not very frequent. Nonetheless, property owners benefit from the Oakville Station and Bronte Station on the Lakeshore West Line. Homeowners have access to approximately 40 bus lines, and the nearest bus stop is generally just around the corner. Oakville is not very appropriate for cycling as the terrain is not particularly flat, and the bicycling network is not very well-developed. This town is also not very convenient for those who travel by foot because most daily needs are challenging to carry out without the use of a vehicle.
The predominant housing types in Oakville are single detached homes and townhouses. This town is primarily composed of three bedroom and four or more bedroom homes. About 80% of the dwellings in the town are occupied by homeowners while renters occupy the remainder.

Getting to one of over 50 supermarkets on foot is an option for some, but not all, house buyers in Oakville. A limited number of restaurants and cafes can be found as well. With respect to education, primary schools are convenient to get to on foot from anywhere in this part of the Toronto metropolitan area. However, parents may find it challenging for their schoolchildren to reach high schools as a pedestrian. Along with public schools, there are private primary and high schools.
