Northwest of Oakville at Highway #5 (Dundas Street) and extending to Highway 401 towards Highway 6 are two communities offering convenient access to Toronto and Pearson Airport, as well as the natural beauty of undeveloped rural property.
The towns of Carlisle and Kilbride are perched atop an escarpment and surrounded by conservation lands, the world-famous Bruce Trail, and panoramic views of Lake Ontario. Homebuyers are drawn to the custom built estates on large parcels of land, as well as the smaller properties on 1-2 acres that offer more of a neighbourhood vibe.
With access to excellent public schools and forested walking trails, the small village of Kilbride is the go-to for families looking to put down roots in the country. Its local fire station and old-time general store are reminders of simpler times. The neighbouring Mount Nemo adds to the ambience of rural living.
Larger than Kilbride, the village of Carlisle is attractive for its first-class golf courses and community centres. Tuckawye and Palomino are two sought-after residential developments in Carlisle that allow residents the advantage of neighbours close by, while still retaining the privacy they seek from rural life.
