Tags: ANcaster, living in Ancaster, Ancaster properties and homes

Located on the Niagara Escarpment, west of Hamilton, the community of Ancaster is flourishing in its full glow. Ancaster, just like its neighboring towns, has also benefited from the market shift which led buyers to look around for properties in the smaller GTA towns instead of aiming for overcrowded downtown centers. Since Ancaster comes with all the conveniences busy GTA residents need, many homebuyers are exclusively looking to buy a home here. Master-planned neighborhoods have become an integral part of Ancaster which launches the community into the high-end category. Here is what you can expect if you relocate to Ancaster.
Housing Affordability And Variety
Ancaster is mostly known for homes built in a casually elegant fashion that offer comfort but yet have an extravagant touch. Whether it’s a detached or new freehold townhouse condoS (which became highly popular), somehow all homes seem to have the upscale look. With the new master-planned communities, the architecture and functionality have been taken to yet another level offering very spacious housing units that allow a lot of light and are optimized to speak to the masses. With family-friendly streets and showing great respect for the beautiful nature it is surrounded by, Ancaster makes sure to offer a level of comfort that cannot be found on every corner. Even if known as a high-end community, the average home price is currently somewhere around $750,000 which is also one of the reasons why the area is sought-after. Homebuyers want good value for their money, and it seems, in Ancaster, they get even more. With a fast appreciation rate, the Ancaster real estate market will certainly go up and the homes will be worth much more in the years to come.

What Makes Ancaster A Great Place To Live?
Ancaster residents feel blessed living near the Niagara Escarpment and they appreciate this unique gift from nature which immensely adds to the value of their town. Nature is a great part of the community as it is well integrated into everyday life with the many ponds, hiking and cycling trails, golf courses, green corridors and conservation areas, like the Tiffany Falls or Dundas Valley Conservation Areas. Rural Ancaster also features apple orchards which further contribute to the serene and tranquil setting.

The Ancaster downtown area is where people can pursue their daily activities like shopping, fine dining, exploring stores, spending time with family and friends, etc.  Everything is available at hand, and if you need to hop to Hamilton, take Highway 403 or 406 and you will be there in 15 minutes. Toronto is also just an hour away, and such fast access to the biggest city in Canada is yet another perk. 

Known as a family place, Ancaster also offers great parks and reputable schools, including public and private, with excellent academic programs and extracurricular activities to give your little ones the perfect opportunity to prepare for the future.
