Buying a Home in Caledon
The Niagara Escarpment and the Oak Ridges Moraine meet in Caledon, a scenic community renowned for its many green spaces and scenic roads.
Living in Caledon
Located north and northwest of Toronto, Caledon is one of the GTA’s largest municipalities. While it has developing pockets of urban areas, Caledon remains primarily rural with picturesque country living that’s just a short drive to the city.
Named one of Canada’s safest places to live by Maclean's magazine, eastern and southern Caledon are more developed with Bolton and Caledon East being the largest. One of the most unique parts of Caledon real estate is that the region is made up of many small hamlets that are reminiscent of Gilmour Girls-style living in towns such as Belfountain, Terra Cotta, Cheltenham, Inglewood and Mono Hills, among others.
Nestled between the Niagara Escarpment and the Oak Ridges Moraine, Caledon is known for its natural beauty and conservation lands, which offer many recreational opportunities, including hiking, cycling and horseback riding. The Bruce Trail runs through Caledon with numerous forks and tributaries branching through the countryside, many backing right up to communities and offering runners and cross-country skiers direct access from their homes. When you buy a home in Caledon, you’ll also have easy access to several community centres, sports parks, ice arenas and Belfountain, one of Ontario’s oldest private ski resorts.
A home in Caledon also means being part of a vibrant arts community and having access to several public libraries, renowned country markets and an eclectic mix of restaurants and shopping, including antique and gift shops.
Caledon real estate
You’ll find a mix of housing in the various communities, from bungalows and split-level homes to heritage homes, large country estates and some new home subdivisions. However, while development continues to encroach in the south and the east, with houses being built at record rates, Caledon has held against this trend more so than Mississauga or Brampton.
CALEDON: Natural splendor meets provincial charm
When you buy a home in scenic Caledon, it can feel like going home to a country cottage every night. Quiet streets, starry skies and backyard bonfires on larger lots (with a burn permit, of course) are the norm. Given its vastness and the roads dotted with farms, Caledon does not have a public transportation system. However, there are local taxi services and plenty of ride-share programs along major highways that intersect the area.
