Weston Downs Neighbourhood Information
As far as Vaughan real estate is concerned, Weston Downs (in the heart of Woodbridge) is one of the most sought after neighbourhoods in this particular area. Similar in scope and appeal to Toronto neighbourhoods such as Leaside and Forrest Hill, Weston Downs is a hidden gem that is often overlooked and undervalued by inexperienced real estate agents.
Known primarily as a traditional and spacious Woodbridge subdivision with plenty of history behind it, Weston Downs appeals mainly to homeowners who are looking for an upscale, luxury detached property with generous lot sizes and family-friendly neighbourhood amenities and attractions. The majority of homes in Weston Downs are equal to or larger than 3,000 square feet and offer lot frontages of a minimum of sixty feet. These homes offer up incredible curb appeal with tastefully manicured, landscaped lawns and mature trees and foliage lining each winding avenue.
Weston Downs residents often lovingly refer to their neighbourhood as the area behind “The Wall,” thanks to the entire subdivision being tucked away behind a classical red brick enclosure. This gives the area a feeling of seclusion and remoteness; a private oasis cordoned off from the noiser city streets and thoroughfares.
Homes for sale in Weston Downs show a variety of styles typical of late 20th-century Canadian suburban architecture. Accented face brick exteriors, raised entryways, tall windows, soft arches with keystone details, and forward-facing double garages. Other common features are cornice returns, Palladian windows, and staggered roofline.
Backyards are generously sized, such that in-ground pools even feature on some properties.
