Lakefront Living, Mature Trees, and Great Schools

This area still maintains a small-town feel while offering amazing access to Toronto, Hamilton & Niagara regions. South Burlington contains 10 of its own uniquely beautiful neighbourhoods. 

Central & Maple

The highlight of this area is definitely Burlington’s bustling downtown. A bustling area filled with small shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, it’s retained many of its historic buildings and small-town feel. The location only steps away from the waterfront, which, aside from its visual appeal, offers great walking and bike paths as well as open parkland – host of the famous Sound of Music festival that draws thousands from the region. Affluent, mature neighbourhoods and condos surround the downtown area, making this a very walkable location – appealing to everyone from the young professional to the empty-nesters. Plus, it’s only steps away from the Burlington GO station, where regular trains are headed to Union Station; some in as little as 40 minutes.

Aldershot & Plains

Situated directly between Hamilton and Burlington, Aldershot is in a unique setting that makes it highly connected, while still feeling somewhat removed. Its proximity and access to the Royal Botanical Gardens on its eastern border offers a stunning escape within minutes of virtually anywhere in the former village. Established neighbourhoods and parks run along the shore of Lake Ontario; old-growth mature trees are prevalent in these highly sought-after areas. Just north of these older neighbourhoods are areas that have undergone significant transition. New developments, hi-rise condominiums and walkable, street-level retail have changed the landscape, reflecting the significant growth the area has recently experienced. For the commuter, Aldershot is a keenly strategic location. It is home to a GO Station and borders both the QEW and 403; making Toronto, Hamilton, and the Niagara Peninsula accessible options.

Roseland & Shoreacres

Undoubtedly the most coveted areas of South Burlington with homes ranging in age from the 1960s to new construction on large treed lots. Neighbourhoods with a canopy of the old-growth tree are a frequent sight in this area; making this a popular choice among young families. Fantastic schools, parks and proximity to the lake. Plus, this is an accessible area from all directions. Minutes to downtown Burlington while convenient highway access puts the amenities of downtown Hamilton a short drive away. Residents of this area have the luxury of being either right within, or in close proximity, to wooded areas – a valuable feature for walks, hikes or a jog. Both the Aldershot and Burlington GO stations are viable, convenient options for the Toronto commuter.

Elizabeth Gardens & Pinedale

This area offers a diverse range of options to suit just about any lifestyle. Here you can find the established, older neighbourhoods with nicely treed lots and larger backyards. Mere blocks away, newer developments have taken shape. Plenty of parkland and green spaces are mixed into the Burlington East landscape. And when you’re looking for a deeper, natural escape, this area is bordered by Bronte Provincial Park. With its proximity to community centres and arenas, this is certainly an area that families flock to. For the commuters, there is easy access to the 403 and the Appleby GO Station.

Longmoor & Dynes

Situated north of New Street and South of the QEW this area has seen a drastic increase in prices over the last year. Side-splits, back-splits, raised ranches and bungalows dominate the style of the home here. Lots of original homes waiting for a fantastic renovation! This area has lots of walking paths, parks and great schools. Mature trees and large yards with some creeks winding through. Close to the major highway access, shopping and restaurants. Ideal location for young families looking to get into a mature area.
