Glen Abbey Homes For Sale

Glen Abbey is a prestigious Oakville neighbourhood and Glen Abbey homes for sale do not tend to stay on the market for very long, they are in high demand.  In the middle of Glen Abbey is the famous Glen Abbey Golf Course which has hosted the Canadian Open Golf Tournament many, many times.

Glen Abbey is bordered by the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) to the south, Upper Middle Road to the north, Bronte Road to the west and the 16 Mile Creek to the east.  The 16 Mile Creek winds its way through the Glen Abbey Golf Course and leads to Lake Ontario and the Oakville Harbour.

One reason Glen Abbey homes for sale are in such high demand is that it is an excellent place to raise a family.  It’s very safe, has excellent schools and many beautiful homes on quieter streets.  The homes are newer relative to most homes in the southern areas of Oakville with homes being built in quantities beginning in the 1980’s and into the 1990’s.
