Apartment buildings, new builds, row housing, townhouses and single-detached family homes comprise the majority of properties in this area. Because construction began in the 1960’s, buyers will see a definite maturity throughout the neighbourhoods. This is beneficial for those who prefer to live in a more natural looking environment. The maturity also means the “cookie-cutter” style housing is less apparent throughout the subdivisions.
The western side of Westmount is relatively new and full of beautiful single detached homes. Price-points vary and can climb up to almost $1m asking price. Buyers, don’t let these prices intimidate you! Westmount is a revered area of town but also full of affordable and beautiful homes for sale. From $100k immaculately maintained three bedroom duplexes and beautiful side splits starting at $300k to seven bedroom estates starting at $1.1m there is something for families and varying incomes.
A walk in the park with the dog or a picnic with the family is always an option for residents of Westmount (weather dependent, of course!) – no matter where in the neighbourhood they live. Basil Grover, Jesse Davidson, and Southwest Optimist Park are the vast green spaces in the area. Here, residents can make use of the accessible skateboard park, soccer fields, baseball diamonds and spray pads. For additional parkland, residents can make their way to Rose Cliff, Westmount Lions, Cresthaven, St. Lawrence and Westmount Parks.
Springbank Park is about two minutes away and has been a favourite London attraction since the 1940’s. Residents have been taking advantage of the 140-hectare park along the Thames River with over 30km of trails since its opening.
