Welcome to Fairmont! A neighbourhood nestled in the southeast end of London, Ontario. Although this district is farther from the city centre, it provides a safe, comfortable and welcoming feel for all residents. The location is exceptional as its boundaries are defined by two bodies of water – the Thames River and Pottersburg Creek. Residents are away from the hustle and bustle of the city but have quick access to everything via Hamilton Road and the intersection of Highbury Avenue and Trafalgar Street.
The properties available in Fairmont vary, but homes are generally smaller in size. Buyers in this area can expect large lots and row housing, duplexes, side splits, single detached houses and bungalows. There are many cul-de-sacs throughout the neighbourhood which minimise traffic and most yards are fenced; this ensures maximum privacy for most residents.
Families and pet-owners will enjoy this area of town which is surrounded by lush, built up greenery and has a country-living feel. Fairmont Park is centrally located in the neighbourhood and is complete with walking paths surrounded by an extensive oak forest. Residents with dogs also enjoy the Pottersburg Offleash Park, which is near the Thames River and the Meadowlily Trail. Attached to the Meadowlily Trail is East Park London, which is a golf course, and multi-recreational centre. East Park is a favourite London pastime that offers a ton of activities including a water park, go-karting and rock climbing. These activities make it the perfect destination for kids, especially during the summer holidays!
