Masonville is a thriving neighbourhood in the north end of London, Ontario. It falls within the borders of Fanshawe Park Road West (north), King’s University College (south), Adelaide Street (east) and Medway Valley Heritage Forest (west). It is regarded as one of the finest neighbourhoods in the city and has a fantastic reputation amongst Londoners. Because the location is at the north end of town, it is about fifteen minutes from the city centre. There are plenty of LTC bus stops throughout the neighbourhood, connecting it to Western University and the rest of the city. Masonville is a significant shopping district in the city, making it an ideal location for many demographics, from students all the way to large families.
Before urbanisation in 1961, the neighbourhood was mostly farmland. Housing development began in the 1980s, and this area of town has since developed with new residential and commercial phases underway.
Small apartments, large single-family homes (with and without pools), one-floor condominiums, townhouses and ranches make up a majority of the properties for sale in Masonville. Compared to other neighbourhoods in the north end, the residential areas here are more mature. The result of this is fully developed foliage and towering trees lining most streets. Buyers will be pleasantly surprised to see residential streets complete with unique housing, veering away from the ‘cookie cutter’ style of many new residential neighbourhoods.
Medway Valley Heritage Forest makes up the eastern part of this area. It is a beautiful woodland full of spectacular walking trails, perfect for jogging or taking the dog for a walk. Residents can also head to Carriage Hill Park for a day outdoors, complete with accessible pathways, play structures, basketball court and multi-use pads.
There are a few elementary and secondary options for students living in this area. In addition to these options, London is home to two renowned post-secondary institutions, Western University and Fanshawe College. Masonville is ideal for students attending Western University as it is only a quick bus ride or four-minute drive to campus. From kindergarten to Master’s degree, London is an ideal location with education opportunities that are second to none.
CF Masonville Place and surrounding commercial developments make up one of the largest shopping districts in the city. The amenities here are endless with plenty of retail stores, dining and entertainment within a two-kilometre radius. Head to the mall for essential shopping at stores such as Sport Chek, Michael Kors, American Eagle, The Bay, Lululemon, Roots, Shoppers Drug Mart etc. Also in the area are restaurants such as The Keg Steakhouse & Bar, Swiss Chalet Rotisserie & Grill, Beertown Public House, Jack Astors etc.
