Andover Trails

Let’s be honest here for a moment, your location and the community that you live in is equally just as important as the house that you chose to be your home. You can have an absolutely gorgeous home that has every modern convenience you could want, but if it’s in a poor location for your daily routine or if its community doesn’t jive with the kind of lifestyle that you and your family live, then it’s not your dream home, is it?

When Sifton Properties Limited choses land to develop into a community, they put a lot of thought and care into it. They carefully consider what London has to offer in those areas, and examine what the lifestyles of potential clients in that area would be. Once they’ve carefully selected the land, they then have to design a community that would be the best fit possible and decide what builders would be best suited to bring these kinds of homes into fruition. All of this care and consideration went into the making of Andover Trails by Sifton.

Andover Trails is located in the Andover neighborhood, which is near Southdale, in between Wonderland and Wharncliffe. It offer a diverse range of multi-bedroom houses, perfect for families, with a wide variety of price points. Andover Trails is filled with stunning new home builds that are full of curb appeal and gorgeous exteriors.

When it comes to location, this place pretty much has it all. It’s an incredible location for people who are looking to raise a family in London Ontario. Check out everything that Andover Trails by Sifton Properties Limited has to offer!

Location

London Ontario is an incredible city to live in. We have so many green spaces, parks, and nature trails sprinkled throughout our city. We have multiple shopping districts, great restaurants, and getting from one side of the city to the other is relatively quick (unless it’s the dreaded construction season, which we all loath). It’s a great city to live in. This means that the biggest factor into deciding where to live is more about what area suits your lifestyle the best.
