The Location

London Ontario is an incredible city to live in because no matter where you choose to live, you’re always close to beautiful parks and stunning views as well as being so close to shopping centers, restaurants, and community centers. But different areas have different vibes. Depending on where you live, you can either feel like you’re in the middle of a bustling urban center that has everything you could think of within walking distance, or you could feel like you’re far away from the city in a nature dreamland, surrounded by greenspace. If you want to wake up surrounded by the sounds of birds and the rustling of trees, but want to be able to spend your day time shopping and eating at amazing restaurants with only takes a short drive, then behold the wonders of The Avenue.

The Avenue is located just a few short minutes from Byron Village and the Oakridge Area. It’s nestled within this beautiful pocket of nature. It backs onto environmentally significant and protected areas: Warbler Woods and the Hickory Woods. The fact that these woods are protected means that you never have to worry about that beautiful green space being torn down only to have a high rise or other building built there, disrupting your beautiful views.

The Avenue - Location

Warbler Woods spans over 29 hectares and has 3.9kms of trails in it. The trails are well marked and the area drains well, so it’s rarely muddy. Experienced hikers will enjoy the challenging

areas that are steeper but provide amazing views. Birdwatchers will find this a haven for seeing all kinds of incredible species. During the springtime, this trail gets carpeted with the beauty of trilliums and trout lilies.

While parents may not enjoy the idea of sending their kids into the challenging hiking trails to play, there are multiple beautiful parks throughout the area are well suited to keep kids playing in the sunshine and enjoying the great outdoors.

With two beautiful wooded areas on either side, walking trails, environmentally protected areas, parks, and a pond, you’ll feel like you’re immersed in and oasis where you can easily take in the beauty of nature. Science has been finding that there are many health benefits to living near and connect with greenspace. Some of those benefits are physical, such as boosting your immune system and improving your cardiovascular health, but part of those benefits are benefits to your mental health. Since The Avenue is sitting on the highest point of London, so all of that beautiful green space and nature are the stunning views that you get to wake up to and go to bed to every night. Imagine what that can do for your wellbeing.

The Avenue - Location

While being nestled in a nature wonderland, The Avenue is also such a coveted location because it has quick and easy access to downtown and is so close to so many amenities.

The Avenue is just a short distance to the Oakridge area. Homeowners know that Oakridge is pretty much the go-to area for home amenities and groceries. There are also many incredible restaurants in the area to choose from when it comes to ordering in and dining out.

Being just minutes from Byron Village means being close to an amazing part of the city. Byron has the feel of a small town, with friendly people, mature properties, and locally owned shops. It also has one of the most delicious Thai restaurants and one of the best pizza places in London.

The Avenue has it all: it’s in an amazing location that is close to so many shopping, eating and entertainment amenities in nearby neighborhoods, it is in the middle of a nature oasis, it’s close

to the incredible RiverBend golf course, has great elementary schools close by, has easy access to downtown, and is a quiet neighborhood that is a great escape from the busy city. And it sits atop the highest point in London so that you can feel like the king of the castle every single day.

Buying New

When it comes to buying a home, there is the question of if you go with a new home or not. While older homes come with well established neighborhoods, big backyards, and relatively little construction, there are a number of benefits that come with choosing a new home. One of the best, in my opinion, advantages to buying new is the quality of construction. Over time the building industry has changed and standards and safety measures have been upped. New techniques and new technologies have taken the timeless craftsmanship of building a home and made it even better.

New homes are also built to be functional as well as stylish. New homes are created with open concepts, lots of light, well designed kitchens, laundry spaces in convenient locations, and much more usable space. In The Avenue you can work with your builders to customize your home to suit your routines and lifestyle.

With new homes comes, well, new things. Buying a new home means that you don’t have to worry about re-doing the roof or making any major repairs for many years to come. Not only that, but with today’s improved building products and better designs, maintenance is easier. Keeping the inside and outside of your home in good working condition is easier than ever.

The Avenue - Buying New

Advances in the construction industry means energy efficient homes. This translates to saving money on your energy bills. It also means improved air quality within the home.

New homes are also built to a higher standard. They have to be built to the safety codes, which are consistently being reevaluated. New homes are now built with hard-wired smoke detectors, electrical circuit protectors and even safety glass.

Another big advantage is beauty. You can get gorgeous finishes in your new home that are reasonably priced: laminate flooring that looks like hardwood, quartz and concrete countertops can look just as stunning as marble and granite. Builders are paying attention to all of the little details when designing their homes, and are giving customers beautiful homes with lots of curb appeal, and stunning interiors. With these homes, you’ll be working directly with the builder to get a custom design, which means that you get a say in all of those little details.

Well planned communities is another big advantage with new home builds. Whether you’re getting in on the first phase of the construction, or the last, you know that you’re going to be getting a home that is in a well-thought out community, with amenities, shopping, restaurants, and more close by, or soon-to-be close by.

Warbler Woods

Warbler Woods

When choosing where to buy your new home, there are few things that you need to consider, but one of the most important things is location. In order to narrow down your location choices, you need to decide if you’re the kind of person who wants to live in the hustle and bustle of it all, or if you’re the kind of person who wants to be close enough to the action but far enough away to forget that you’re living the city life. For those who prefer to distance themselves from the busy city life, the Riverbend neighbourhood is an ideal location.

Sifton Properties Limited’s Warbler Woods is an incredibly desirable place to live. The location is tucked away from the busyness of the city, while still being close to busy shopping and entertaining districts, and is surrounded by beautiful wooded areas. It’s filled with absolutely beautiful homes that are designed with your lifestyle in mind. These are amazing homes built for families and have plenty of parks close by for kids to explore and play in. It’s a quiet neighborhood, tucked away. It’s also close to great schools, and is an easy commute to downtown.

As for the homes, they’re built with functionality and aesthetics in mind. You really can have it all: entertaining space, room for your family to grow, and a beautiful retreat to call home. And for families that love to stay active together, the hiking trails that surround the neighborhood are a big bonus.

Take a look at everything that Warbler Woods has to offer and see why buying new might be just the thing you’ve been looking for.

One of the best things about buying a home in London Ontario, is that you’re buying into a life in the forest city. Depending on where you live, you can either feel like you’re in the middle of a bustling urban center that has everything you could think of within walking distance, or you could feel like you’re far away from the city in a nature dreamland, surrounded by greenspace. But the great part, is that no matter which area you choose, you’re such a short commute to the other. So if you want to live surrounded by busy streets and fantastic shopping, you can always jump on the bus or a car and within minutes be surrounded by nature. And if you want to wake up surrounded by the sounds of birds and the rustling of trees, but want to be able to spend your day time shopping and eating at amazing restaurants, it only takes a short drive to achieve that. Warbler woods is in the later of those two options.

Warbler Woods - Location

Warbler woods is located just a few short minutes from Byron Village. It’s nestled within this beautiful pocket of nature. It backs onto both the Warbler Woods (which it clearly got its name from) and the Hickory Woods. Warbler woods is an Environmentally Significant area that spans over 29 hectares. It has 3.9kms of trails in it. The trails are well marked and the area drains well, so it’s rarely muddy. There are some challenging areas that are quite steep, so it’s a great trail to take for exercise. You’ll really want to hike this trail during the springtime when it becomes carpeted with beautiful plants like trilliums and trout lilies. It’s an amazing spot for birdwatchers too.

While woods might not be the best place for kids to roam and explore, the multiple beautiful parks that are through out the area are well suited to keep kids playing in the sunshine and enjoying the great outdoors. The storm water pond that is located near the back is a beautiful place to enjoy the views.

With two beautiful wooded areas on either side, walking trails, environmentally protected areas, parks, and a pond, you’ll feel like you’re immersed in and oasis where you can easily take in the beauty of nature.

Besides the nature aspect, which is a big draw for those who love nature, the Warbler Woods homes are in a great location. It’s close to many amenities and even has quick and easy access to downtown.

Warbler Woods is just a short drive to the Oakridge area. Oakridge is pretty much the go-to area for grocery and home amenities. You have a giant Costco, Real Canadian Superstore, and a Sobey’s Extra to make your grocery and home shopping an ease. There are incredible restaurants to choose from such as State and Main, Ozen Korea, Heart Sushi, Crabby Joes, Firehouse Subs, and even The Captain’s Boil.

Being just minutes from Byron Village means being close to an amazing part of the city. Byron has the feel of a small town, with friendly people, mature properties, and locally owned shops. It also has one of the most delicious Thai restaurants in London—Meesai Thai Kitchen. It also is home to one of the best pizza places in London, which is Byron Pizza. Seriously. They only deliver to a small area, but if you’re outside of that area, it is worth the drive to pick it up. It’s that good.

History

Mowbray Sifton actually started the dream that led to RiverBend Golf Community over 50 years ago. His dream was to see a community that was designed for and catered to the golf enthusiast. He wanted to see this community surrounded by the beauty of nature. He wanted a place for those who were approaching retirement that would encourage a healthy active lifestyle. His dream included the finest amenities. Mowbray’s dream became a reality, thanks to the incredible dedication of his sons and Sifton Properties. Today, RiverBend Golf Community is one of the most desirable locations in all of Southwestern Ontario.

Preserving the natural surroundings of the community has been one of the top priorities of Sifton. RiverBend has shown it’s focus of preservation when, in 2006, they were designated as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. This incredible designation is only given to golf courses that show an incredible amount of dedication to natural preservation through: wildlife habitat management, water conservation and management, a significantly reduced amount of chemicals used, and environmental planning.

The Best Winter Activities in London

With the cold and the snow on your doorstep, it’s often the impulse to stay inside, huddled under a blanket with a hot cup of tea, re-watching The Office, Friends, or whatever your sitcom of choice may be. Well, just because the temperature has dropped doesn’t mean the city of London has stopped with fun and exciting activities for you or the family!

With cold weather and blankets of snow covering the ground comes a whole new set of activities that you can’t enjoy any other time of the year. Just around the house, you get to build a snowman in your front yard, adorn every nook and cranny with festive décor, and put out milk and cookies for jolly old Saint Nick.

But there’s so much more to do outside your home and around the city of London. All you’ve got to do is brave the cold, get outside, and enjoy some of these awesome winter activities!

Best Winter Activities - Boler Mountain

Boler Mountain is the destination for outdoor excitement all year round. In the summer, there’s hiking and mountain biking trails, the Treetop Adventure Park, and an 1100-foot zipline! But the fun doesn’t stop when the snow starts to fall, it gets even better. When the mountain transforms from green to white, you know it’s time to break out the skis and snowboards.

Boler Mountain has over a dozen trails for skiing or snowboarding down the mountain. They range from green circle (the easiest) to black diamond (the hardest). You have the opportunity to bring your own equipment, or you can rent a set of theirs. Grab a day pass, or if you’re really dedicated to sliding down hills, a season pass for you or even the whole family!

If you’re new to downhill winter sports and looking to learn, they’ve got programs for everyone from age 5 to adults. Classes are divided by age, but they also offer private lessons if you’re interested in one-on-one attention to really speed up your learning process.

Boler Mountain even offers a freestyle ski and snowboard program for youths aged 8 to 13. Your child can learn how to handle jumps and bumps. To participate, your child should already have strong skiing or snowboarding skills since they jump right into the terrain, and won’t be going over the basics.

Skiing and snowboarding aren’t the only downhill winter activities at Boler Mountain though, there’s also tubing. For the uninitiated, tubing is when you sit in the middle of a big rubber donut and hurtle yourself down a hill. Boler Mountain’s tube runs are 10 stories tall, and you’re able to reach speeds of up to 70 kilometres per hour, which means you’re going nearly double the speed limit of a school zone!

Your $20 (plus tax) tubing ticket lasts for two hours. On average, that means you’ll get to ride down the hill somewhere between 4 and 8 times, depending on how busy it is.

Best Winter Activities - Tree Lane Farms

With winter comes Christmas, and with Christmas comes a Christmas Tree. Sure, you could haul your who-knows-how-many-years-old fake tree out of storage again, or you could pack your family into the car and head out to Tree Lane Farms in Ilderton!

Tree Lane Farms has 110 acres of land that are entirely dedicated to growing Christmas trees. That’s right, they’ve got over 40,000 trees waiting to be taken home by a family such as yours! They’ve got pre-cuts if you’re just looking to grab one and go, but Tree Lane Farms has prepared an amazing Christmas experience if you stay and explore!

Of course, the main goal is to get a tree. If you’ve elected to get a U-Cut tree, you can head out into their forest and peruse the selection, rows upon rows of evergreens. They’ve got white spruce, white pine, and blue spruce to pick from. Bring your own saw or borrow one of theirs, but absolutely no chainsaws are allowed. You and your family cut your selected tree down, and then you can get it shaken and wrapped for easy transport home.

Need some decorations for that tree? Head to their Christmas store for any festive décor that you could ever need. Tree toppers, ornaments, and tree skirts are all available to make your tree even prettier once you get it home. They’ve also got other holiday-themed items like stockings, mugs, pillows, signs, and so much more!

On the grounds, there are even more activities that Tree Lane Farms provides. On weekends, wagon rides take you to and from the tree field. Cozy up to the community campfire, or find one of their smaller, more private firepits to share with friends and family. Grab a hot drink and a Fritter Shop fritter. You can even meet one of Santa’s reindeer, Prancer!

Picking and cutting your own Christmas tree is an awesome winter activity for the entire family, and Tree Lane Farms makes it even sweeter with the added holiday cheer. Want to hear from the owners themselves? Check out our Business of the Week we did with them here!

Best Winter Activities - Circle R Ranch

You may know the Circle R Ranch for their awesome horseback riding lessons and trail rides through the spring and the fall, and sleepaway camps in the summer. But when the temperature drops and the snow falls, Circle R Ranch becomes the place to go in and around London for cross country skiing and snowshoeing!

The ranch offers 13 kilometres of trails that have been groomed and tracked to make for skiing perfection. There are six different paths to choose from, each with their own distance and difficulty level.

The Sugarbush is the easiest trail to take, and is only 1.3 kilometres, perfect for a beginner-level skier or just a nice leisurely ski.

The two most difficult trails are Tuckerman and Skating. Tuckerman is a 5 kilometre loop for classic-style cross country skiing. The Skating trail, however, is designed for skating-style skiing, which requires shorter skis, a skating-like motion of the feet, and no poles. The Skating trail is also 5 kilometres long.

Meanwhile, the snowshoe trail is 4 kilometres long.

For something extra special, sign up for one of the Moonlight Ski & Snowshoe Dinner events! You are treated to a dinner of homemade chili (either con carne or vegetarian), cold and hot beverages, a salad bar, and dessert. After your meal, you head out for either a ski or a snowshoe adventure under the stars. The winter night is peaceful and serene, something that can be hard to come by in the city. Any level of skier or snowshoer is welcome to sign up, and you can even rent equipment there if you don’t have your own!

Circle R Ranch is a reminder that the cold weather doesn’t mean you should stay inside! Cross country skiing and snowshoeing at Circle R Ranch makes for a fun and physical day to keep your activity and spirits high in the winter!

Best Winter Activities - Heeman's Workshops

There’s buying Christmas decorations and then there’s making your own. Head out to Heeman’s in Thorndale to participate in one of their incredible workshops that let you create your own Christmas décor.

The daymakers at Heeman’s will walk you, your friends, and your family through making one of their amazing centerpieces with real plants! Make a wreath, decorate a boxwood tree, or even recreate the tree from the Grinch!

They will provide just about everything required to make your centerpiece. You aren’t required to bring extra materials or equipment in order to make your decoration. However, if you’ve got a favourite pair of pruning shears or gloves, then you are more than welcome to bring them along! If not, they will be provided for you.

Make sure you book yourself a spot ahead of time, because spaces are limited, and you don’t want to get left out in the cold!

Attending a Heeman’s workshop allows you to both celebrate the joys of winter and avoid the horrors of its weather, the best kind of winter activity if you ask me.

Check out their schedule to find out exactly when they’ll be playing at Bud Gardens and grab a ticket for you and some friends or family.

Come winter, Victoria Park transforms into a winter wonderland. Festive lights shine bright through the whole park, washing the white snow in neon colours. It’s a wonder to walk through in the evening (or the afternoon since the sun goes down so early nowadays), and enjoy the holiday spirit and gorgeous lightshow.

In front of the bandshell, a skating rink is installed. It’s absolutely free to skate there anytime from 10 AM to 10 PM every day. The only time you can’t skate during this time is between 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM, when they’re resurfacing the ice. As long as the weather is agreeable, the rink is open from early December all the way through until the end of March Break.

If you don’t have skates of your own, you can rent some for just $7 on weekdays from 5 PM to 10 PM, and noon to 10 PM on weekends. Or if the skates you own need to be sharpened, they’ve got you covered as well for just $6.

Storybook Gardens transforms into Snowybook Village from December 22nd to January 5th. The village offers extra skating hours, special holiday lights and décor, mascot meet and greets, and campfire programming to keep you warm during all of it!

There’s even a New Year’s Eve party, or a “hoopla” as they call it. They do the countdown at 8:30 so your little ones still get to experience the fun and excitement of ringing in the new year, without staying up way past their bed time. The festivities also include crafts, skating, and a campfire. You must pre-register in order to get tickets for this event though, so pick them up soon!

Building Amenities

The condo lifestyle is not just about worry-free home ownership. It’s not just about having the joy of a beautiful home that is landscaped and luxurious without worrying about shoveling, mowing, and raking, or any kind of general home maintenance and upkeep. It’s not just about having the luxury of being able to travel whenever you want for however long you want without the need of finding someone to watch your house while you’re gone. It’s also about the amenities that fit with your lifestyle.

NorthCliff - Building Amenities

The amenities that NorthCliff offers are an extension of your home. They make entertaining a breeze. They’re also great for having an active social lifestyle. The amenity rooms become the “neighborhood” of your building where you can meet and connect with your neighbors. They become another part of your home that you can relax and be entertained in.

NorthCliff’s building amenities include the following:

On-site Management

Full time on-site management are there to keep the place looking amazing and to help you and your guests feel welcomed. They’re also there in case any issues may arise.

Gym

When it comes to your physical health, we all know the stats: we should aim for 30 minutes of physical activity every day. But of course, with our busy lives it can be hard to find the time to hit the gym. Or maybe the idea of going to a busy, public gym is just a major turn off. Luckily, a modern gym is included in the amenities of NorthCliff. You’ll be able to get in some cardio or weight training in the comfort of your own building. Fitting in a quick workout can’t get any easier.

Library

Sometimes you just need a place for peace and quiet. You need a space that is tranquil and elegant with amazing seating so that you can cozy in with a really good book and ease away the stresses of the day and lose yourself into the written words.

Theater Room

A large screen, big comfy chairs, amazing sound system, and ambient lighting: is there anything else that movie buffs need in their lives? I don’t think so. The theater room is a great place to watch your favorites. It’s also a great place to host a movie night with your friends. You can pretend you’re having a night at the movies without ever having to leave home (and without paying an arm and a leg for concession snacks).

Social Room

The social room is a gorgeous space with comfortable steading and great lighting. It’s a space to meet up with your neighbors and have wonderful conversations. It’s also a great additional space to bring guests if you’re hosting a get together and want to get out of your space for a bit.

Patio

A beautiful patio gives a great space to enjoy the sunshine and great weather. Have “backyard” bbqs and summer mixers on the beautiful and well maintained patio. Between the patio and your large balcony, you won’t miss having a backyard at all!

Billiards Room

Pool is a wonderful, social game that can be anywhere from casual to straight up competitive. You can connect with your neighbours over a game of pool. Or you can bring your guests down for a friendly game if you’re hosting. The room is spacious and beautifully decorated.

Northcliff - Features

Underground Parking

Underground parking makes rainy and snowy days that much easier. When you don’t have to scrape off piles of snow and ice off of your car in the early morning, or when you don’t have to make a mad dash to your car to avoid getting soaked in the rain, you’ll be so thankful for underground parking that keeps your car safe from people and from Canadian weather.

Guest Suite

If you’re hosting overnight guests, you’ll be happy to know that NorthCliff has guests suites available to rent. These suites ensure that both you and your guests get a comfortable night’s sleep. You can meet up in the morning at your own time for brunch the next day. It can help you be a responsible host for those who might otherwise drink and drive.

Security

Controlled entry, cameras and a state-of-the-art security system can help you have peace of mind both when you’re at home and away from home.

Storage Locker

The truth of the matter is that most of the time we have more stuff than can fit into our apartments. We have seasonal things that we don’t use all-year round and we just need a space to keep things safe and secure until we need them again. NorthCliff has got you covered there as well. They have storage lockers available for residents to keep your belongings secured, but out of the way, which really beats having to pay for storage units somewhere else in the city.

Location

You know what they say about real estate, the most important factor is location, location, location. Well NorthCliff is in an incredible location. The Hyde Park location is a booming location. While we can all probably remember back when it was a rural area, it has been developed with thriving commercial areas, incredible shopping districts, a ton of delicious restaurant choices, and multiple pockets of new-build neighborhoods.

NorthCliff’s building is tucked away from the busy main roads in an adorable residential area, but is still just very close to Hyde Park road and Gainsburough road so that you have access to the main streams through London. Right around the building is beautiful green spaces and it’s close to multiple parks. Right across from the building is Unger’s Market, which has an incredible bakery, delicious meals, as well as incredible produce and meats. If you have not checked it out yet, you really should.

The Tricar Group is an environmentally responsible builder that understands the importance of not only creating beautiful and luxurious buildings, but also condos that have green features. Those features help to minimize greenhouse gases, reduce the carbon footprint of both the building and the people living in it, as well as save energy and materials, and it provides a comfortable living environment. Creating buildings that cares about the sustainability of our future is just another way that Tricar puts the customer first, and it’s another reason to choose condo living.

The North area of London has been expanding rapidly and people have been flocking to it with good reason. The area has it all. It’s both in the middle of a commercial district, but also feels like it’s in the middle of nature. Golf fans could not find a better location, being so close to Sunningdale golf course. Pebble Creek Park and Heron Haven Park are close by as well, giving you plenty of options for enjoying the great outdoors without needing to travel far at all.
