Many people do not realize that you can live more closely with nature and still be part of Canada's Business & Entertainment Capital.
Let me share with you the beauty and wonder of living in this part of the GTA!
Many of my home sellers have raised their children and are ready to downsize. They are looking forward to seeing a new family take over the stewardship of their beloved home & raise their children in a safe, friendly environment where they can play hockey on the front street or walk by themselves (!) to their friend's house.
What is really tells the story, however, are the number of people that buy a home to get into Caledon and then move within the same neighbourhood as their needs or budgets allow.
Take your time to wander through my website.
Of course you'll find homes for sale & real estate tips, but you will also find information on the unique personality of each community within Caledon and Cool Things to Do each month in our Community of Communities.
Please give me call or send me an email if I can help you buy or sell a home in Caledon.
Caledon East is Caledon's largest centre outside of Bolton. It is also where you will find the Caledon Town Hall. Caledon East is about 10 minutes north of Brampton along Airport Road.
Caledon East is one of the three communities slated to get much of the growth in Caledon over the next 20 years. Consequently, you will find that it is a very well-serviced, vibrant centre. The main streets in Caledon East are lined with the expected variety of stores, including a grocery store, butcher, pharmacy, liquor store, hair & beauty salons etc. Caledon East is also home to many unexpected shops including: an automotive shop, an art gallery, a dog-grooming shop and many, many more. Eating in Caledon East almost seems to be an obsession when you look at the number of restaurants, specialty food stores and caterers who also offer take-home frozen gourmet dinners. It is the perfect area for the busy person who still enjoys good food or likes to entertain!
