Most of West Oakville was built between the 40s and early-60s, which explains the 3-bedroom split-level homes and post-war bungalows on larger sized lots. Many original homes are being bought to tear down and reconstruct as custom builds. Though West Oakville is generally a moderately priced neighbourhood, custom rebuilt homes now sell in excess of $1,000,000, mostly for the privacy and space offered by the lot sizes. The mature trees and ravines, coupled with the close proximity to both the lake and highways, add to this community’s lasting appeal.
West Oakville residents enjoy close proximity to Lake Ontario and the beautiful parks and walking trails nearby. Parents have their choice of well-respected public and private schools, including French immersion programs. Recently opened are the Queen Elizabeth Park Community Centre and the Bronte Tennis Club, which offers affordable memberships, league play, and lessons for children and adults.
