Falgarwood - Oakville
OAKVILLE is a growing town of approximately 180,000 residents! It is made up of so many different, beautiful and unique family communities! Each day I will be introducing one to you as a way for you to familiarize yourselves with the many possibilities to which to choose from to consider home. The ninth is FALGARWOOD, a community we chose to invest our knowledge in!
The geographical location of Falgarwood stretches north of the QEW, south of Upper Middle Road, east of Trafalgar Road and west of Ninth Line. It is one of the original family neighbourhoods in Oakville, smaller yet picturesque with an abundance of trees, streams, parks and original homes consisting mainly of bungalows, sidesplits and 2 stories. FALGARWOOD is known primarily for its scenic streets with homes located on larger lots which have become very much in demand in Oakville. My favorite appear to be bungalows located on these larger lots, some backing onto protected conservations offering total privacy.
Being an original Oakville community, Falgarwood has much to offer in terms of stability. Most residents are original families with few moving in and out, the beauty of knowing your neighbours and building friendly relationships is evident in this pocket, unlike some of the newer and northern parts of the city. Here you will find good value for properties however, renovation, updating or some additions may be essential to maintain property value and quality of life.
The Oakville Golf Club is also located in the Falgarwood Community at www.oakvillegolfclub.com where many Oakville business host their corporate meetings, luncheons and charity events. Local Oakville residents can plan Christmas parties, cocktail parties and receptions, wedding ceremonies and receptions or just get away for a great round of golf! This scenic recreational landmark is to be enjoyed by Oakville and the surrounding communities.

Schools are smaller and provide excellent academic standards in Oakville, you may investigate more on the Falgarwood Schools at www.fraserinstitute.org to review their Ontario rankings.
