Neighbourhoods in London, Ontario
It feels as though for every distinguished school across London Ontario, there is a distinguished neighbourhood. If you prefer being a part of larger ones, you could venture east to Argyle, and just a bit north of that Huron Heights offers ample schools, shopping, and parks. Masonville in Northwest London is one of the city’s largest commercial and residential areas. If you lean more intimate or historic, be sure to consider Blackfriars which runs along the Thames River toward downtown, Broughdale by UWO, or Longwoods which is a recently developed subdivision in South London. Two neighbourhoods in particular are showcasing some exquisite work by custom home builders, Forever Homes. The first is Byron, located in the southwest, where a small-town feel permeates the relatively large yet tremendously friendly community. The average sale price of a home in Byron hovers are $575,000 while condominiums average out to $350,000. Outdoor activities, shopping sprees waiting to happen, and prestigious schools are all within earshot Byron.
The second neighbourhood experiencing growth from numerous projects by Forever Homes, is Creekview. It is a relatively new subdivision belonging to northwest London. It offers a plethora of gorgeous single-family homes nestled between top-tier entertainment, food, and schools. Be sure to peruse the brand new Forever Homes Creekview Phase 2 units! With 30 constructed for this burgeoning community, demand will surely be high. Units start around $600,000 and range from 2400 to 3300 square feet.
