About

Our cozy but spacious home is perfect for a family looking to stay in the Greater Toronto/Hamilton Area. It is situated on a quiet street, and is located within a 20 minute walk to pubs, groceries, pharmacy etc,. basically everything you need. Outside, lots of fun can be had with our pool and hot tub, Springfree trampoline, large deck, pergola, and bbq. Inside, we have 4 bedrooms upstairs (we use 1 as a large office), along with 2 full bathrooms (1 of them an ensuite to a very large master bedroom). On the main floor, you'll find a fully equipped eat-in kitchen (with Wolf stove, Sub-zero fridge, and wine fridge), which opens up to the main family room, along with a separate dining room and formal living room (with a grand piano), and a powder room and separate main floor laundry room with large washing machine and dryer. The basement includes a finished play area for kids (along with an Xbox One), and a separate office space. We are located within driving distance to many universities: McMaster U. (20 minutes), University of Toronto Mississauga (30 minutes), University of Guelph and Brock University (45 minutes), University of Waterloo (and York U., Ryerson U. and University of Toronto and University of Waterloo (about a hour depending on traffic), and Western University (1 hr 45 min). Most of these universities can be accessed by fantastic public transit (GO train or buses). We are on the direct line into Toronto by commuter train, which brings you to the Toronto downtown core directly in 45 minutes. Burlington is close to major transportation, to the cities of Hamilton and Toronto and to the U.S. border. A short drive away is a UNESCO world biosphere reserve Niagara Escarpment. Lake Ontario is a walk away. More than half of the city is protected rural space. On our doorstep lies Canada's oldest footpath and conservation corridor, the Bruce Trail, with more than 1,200 kilometres (745 miles) of nature. Burlington blooms with greenery, including conservation areas, waterfront parks and trails, the Royal Botanical Gardens and Bronte Creek Provincial Park. It is a perfect place for a family that wants to explore Ontario more widely as well.
