Charming and Distinguished Neighbourhoods of Canada

Envision a distinctive lifestyle where your neighbourhood is a serene retreat you can call home, and a sincere feeling of community prevails. Imagine living in an inviting character home, surrounded by walkable tree-lined streets that create an atmosphere of comfort and a true sense of place. From the beautifully preserved 19th century rowhouses of Olde Walkerville in Windsor, to the picturesque tree-lined streets of The Crescents in Regina, you can still find places where this old-world romance is cherished and preserved.

Featuring select neighbourhoods that exemplify visionary urban planning, landscape design and architecture, our portfolio represents distinguished places to live in Canada. Many of the districts were developed with a characteristic approach to aesthetics, function and value, during a turn-of-the-century movement to create ‘garden suburbs’. These historical areas gradually became the established centres of the cities that grew up around them. Throughout the years, these neighbourhoods have retained their exclusive allure and elegance, and their proximity to nearby amenities ensures a continuing balance between timeless charm and modern convenience.

The more recent and forthcoming of our featured locales are the exquisite creations of New Urbanism. Through a philosophy which applies the best design concepts of the past, and values place-making and sustainability, this significant planning initiative seeks to improve on our preexisting environments through the creation of more attractive, pedestrian-oriented communities that enrich the spirit and present captivating places worth living in.

As you peruse our notes on the characteristics of each location, our photographic compilations will illustrate the graceful homes and streets unique to these areas. Thank you for visiting us, and enjoy your tour through our Classic Neighbourhoods.
