Home is more than just the space between four walls. It's also about community, and choosing the right one can make for a happier and more fulfilling family life. Fortunately, those of us who are lucky enough to live in Vaughan have some pretty amazing options.
If you're looking for a family home in 2020, here are three communities where you should consider putting down roots...
1) Vellore Village
Once you visit Vellore Village, it's bound to be high on the list of neighbourhoods you'd like to call home. This idyllic corner of Woodbridge is perfectly planned—from its schools and parks to its beautiful residential properties. Whether you're looking for a townhouse or single-family home, you'll find a living space that meets your needs here. Think high-end, newer-build options in a community that couldn't be friendlier.
One of the highlights of Vellore Village is the local community centre. With its state-of-the-art fitness equipment, swimming pools, and skating rink, this facility has it all. Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre is also located nearby, along with the pristine, nature-lover's paradise known as Kortright Centre for Conservation.
2) Sonoma Heights
Searching for the perfect place to raise kids? Look no further than Sonoma Heights. This newer west-end subdivision is full of charming townhomes and spacious houses—plus it has all the conveniences a family could ask for. If you visit the area, take note of the popular grocery stores, restaurant chains, and nearby reference library (perfect if you have readers in the family).
Then there's the schools. In Sonoma Heights, you won't have to shuttle the kids halfway across town to ensure they get a quality education. There are plenty of options right in the community, including Catholic and French Immersion schools.
3) Weston Downs
Looking for luxury—and plenty of room to spread out? If you're comfortable with the higher price tag that goes along with it, Weston Downs just might be the right place for you! This peaceful subdivision, which sits behind a stately brick gate, offers spacious lots and sprawling single-family homes. Along with its beautiful living spaces, Weston Downs provides an abundance of family-friendly amenities.
The local shopping centre is home to a handful of ultra-convenient businesses (including an Italian sandwich spot, barber shop, and dental centre, among others). The National Golf Club of Canada is also located in the community, for those who like to hit the links. Lastly, at Weston Downs Park, you'll find a children's playground, baseball diamond, tennis courts, and more.
Whether you grew up in Vaughan, have lived here for a decade, or have just decided to move to the city, you'll find a family-friendly community that meets your needs here. Vellore Village, Sonoma Heights, and Weston Downs are all great options to explore in 2020. Having said that, there's a wide variety of communities in the city to meet any budget and set of preferences. To find your perfect place, get in touch today!
