When you’re looking for a home, chances are, you’re looking to put down roots in a community you’ll be proud to call your own. Rosehaven Homes features a number of new enclaves located in settings with plenty of small town charm and room to grow.
Here’s a closer look at some of the communities and what makes them great places to live:
One of the oldest villages in the Town of East Gwillimbury, Mount Albert was first settled in the early 1820s. Along Centre Street, you’ll find a distinct downtown core filled with a number of shops and services. The core is currently undergoing revitalization efforts, with plans underway to improve the streetscape and add more greenery along the main commercial strip. Though it’s a quaint community just north of Stouffville, Mount Albert is growing into a place that’s popular among families looking for extra space. Victoria Highlands is nestled into the rolling hills of the open countryside at Ninth Line and Mount Albert Road. The new enclave features detached houses on 50’ lots, many backing onto wooded areas. Residences start from $584,990.
Niagara Falls may be know as a tourist destination, but it’s also a community made up of just under 83,000 residents. Its citizens have great park spaces and golf courses to appreciate, not to mention easy access to plenty of award-winning wineries. There are plenty of hiking and camping opportunities along the Niagara Escarpment. Plus cross-border shopping and trips to the United States are a breeze! Rich in history and home to many important War of 1812 sites, Niagara is so much more than postcard pictures of the falls. Make the community your own by calling Lyon’s Creek in the Chippawa village home. Situated at Sodom Road and Main Street, the enclave is right by the Welland River, which flows down to the Niagara River which separates the United States from Canada. Offering plenty of variety for house-hunters, residences range in size from 1,804 to 3,244-square feet and start from the $320,000s.
Also along the Niagara Escarpment, the little city of Thorold is home to just under 18,000 residents and plenty of history. The Welland Canal, built in the 1830s, passes right through the city, and the Twin Flight Locks are located in the downtown. It’s home to a number of beautiful historic buildings, some dating back all the way to the early 19th century. Home to plenty of parks and the Welland Canal Parkway Trail, which stretches all the way between St. Catharine’s and Port Colborne, there are a wealth of recreational opportunities in the area. When you call Gibson Heights home, you can spend the afternoon strolling along boardwalks or go hiking in the Short Hills Provincial Park, home to an impressive variety of wildlife. Gibson Heights features 237 homes situated at Confederation Drive and Collier Road, not far from the shores of Gibson Lake. Choose between detached houses and townhomes, starting from the $290,000s.
Brampton isn’t a small town, but the thriving GTA municipality does have a number of quiet corners. The city has recently been working on restoring some of the remaining historic gems in the community and the revamped historic CPR station is a showpiece in the middle of Mount Pleasant Village. The neighbourhood is home to plenty of schools, shops and parks, plus wide-open spaces that stretch out to nearby Georgetown, a quaint community with a Main Street made up of Victorian storefronts. If you’re looking for that balance between the suburbs and a small town, be sure to check out the Neighbourhoods of Mount Pleasant (pictured above), made up of a series of detached houses and townhomes at Bovaird Drive West and Mississauga Road. Residences start from $399,990.
