10 most expensive homes for sale in Oakville, Ontario

(Source: www.winecountry.com)

Residents of Oakville, Ontario are accustomed to being surrounded by money and lavish luxury. That’s because A-list artists and sports stars tend to gravitate to the mansions and manors in this lakefront city. For instance, pop icon Prince once lived in a massive 14,000+ square foot home (which went on the market for $17.8-million in April 2016). Ron McLean, the famous Hockey Night in Canada host, calls Oakville home as does Philadelphia Flyers’ goalie Steve Mason.
