In the southeast corner of Oakville, Ford offers a mix of traditional family homes and new construction. Many of today’s buyers choose to tear down the original homes (dating back to the 60s) and custom-build new, contemporary residences. Some of Oakville’s most beautiful and luxurious lakefront estates are in the Ford community. There’s good news though: those with more moderate price ranges can still find bungalows, side splits, and larger family homes in the northern section of this community, one of Oakville’s most affordable neighbourhoods.
Minutes away from the QEW, commuters can reach downtown Toronto by car or transit, often in less than 30 minutes. Shoppers enjoy convenient access to all the amenities of downtown Oakville and shopping at Maple Grove Village Shopping Centre. Residents are proud of their community’s many excellent schools (including the top-ranked Oakville Trafalgar High School) and proximity to the town’s parks, ice rinks, and gorgeous Gairloch Gardens.
