In Oakville luxury homes can be found in all corners of the town and there are many of them too, in many towns luxury homes are confined to just one neighbourhood! A fabulous quality of life, a location right on the shores of Lake Ontario, and an easy commute into Toronto has made Oakville, Ontario one of the country’s favourite towns to live in. It attracts families, seniors, and young professionals, but it also attracts a large proportion of Canada’s wealthiest people – this is, after all, said to be one of the wealthiest – if not the wealthiest – towns in the whole of Canada, so it only follows that there are numerous luxury homes here too.
Most Expensive Real Estate
Oakville isn't the most expensive place to buy real estate in Canada though it is one of the most expensive. Comparing raw data on house prices the three most expensive places in the country are actually in the west, in the Vancouver area, but Oakville isn't too far behind. It comes in ranked as the eighth most expensive place to buy a home, according to average house prices, with the average being $563,900 (in March 2012). This figure alone doesn't actually sound too bad but remember it’s an average – if you do want to look at Oakville luxury homes you’re going to need a budget of at least double that amount.

What Do You Consider Luxurious?
What one home buyer considers to be luxurious can be quite
different to the next. For some, owning a home that backs onto a golf course as popular as Glen Abbey Golf course, is living a life of luxury. For others, being close to some an Oakville Private School is their ideal lifestyle. Some even go as far as seeking out a specific builder like Ashley Oak Homes. We all have our own personal tastes but when spending
millions of dollars nobody wants to compromise on their property choice. For
this reason, sometimes the best luxury homes are those that have been
custom built and if you go down this route you know you’ll be getting exactly
what you want!
