The creme de la creme of Oakville Real Estate

200 year old trees, forests, a lake, acre lots, the best schools in Canada, and some pretty nice houses. Real estate in Eastlake is like a magical mystery tour, every house and every street is so unique and has it’s own character. When I first moved to Oakville with my parents from Toronto (a couple of weeks ago ;)) we landed in Eastlake (which is really called Morrison by us locals and the Toronto Real Estate Board likes to include the Ford neighbourhood in what they call Eastlake as well, so Ford has benefitted immensely from it’s proximity to Morrison). The feel of this neighbourhood is idyllic to say the least, all of these beautiful and unique homes nestled in what seems like a forest of giant Whistler like trees. The Shoppes of Oakville South offers convenient shopping for the residents of Eastlake including Longo’s, L.C.B.O, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Starbuck’s, Whole Foods http://wholefoodsmarket.com, Harper’s Landing http://harperslanding.ca, The Merchant of Tennis http://merchantoftennis.com, to name a few. Building lots in Morrison start near $1,700,000. There are many different lot sizes in this neighbourhood from 60ft x 120ft all the way up to acre lots (very rare).

SCHOOLS AND SPORTS IN EASTLAKE

There is no shortage of school options in Oakville and Eastlake is no exception. Since private schools have no boundaries we have left them out of this report. Eastlake has two high schools, Oakville Trafalgar High School and St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School are 3 elementary schools in Eastlake including E.J. James Public School, Maple Grove Public School, and St. Vincent Catholic Elementary School. Please log on to http://hdsb.ca and select “Schools” then enter whatever address you like and you will be able to see what school catchment the address would fall into. You can also log onto the Halton Catholic School Board to find which schools match up with the address of your choice.

When the bell rings at 3pm and every parent thinks “Wow, 3pm already? How will I keep my kid(s) busy for the rest of the day?”

Don’t worry, this is Oakville, since there are so many schools here and the average household income is quite high in comparison to many other towns or cities, you can be assured that there is no shortage of businesses that cater to families in many industries. There are indoor playgrounds for rainy days, there are sports organizations from soccer, hockey, dance, gymnastics, martial arts, music, community centres, etc.
