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 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.
The Village of Cheltenhamis in the southwest corner of Caledon, Ontario, only 5 minutes to Brampton and 15 minutes to Mississauga and Georgetown.
Cheltenham was founded by Charles Haines in the early 1820's; he named the quaint hamlet after his home in England. Some of the Haines family descendents still live in Cheltenham.
Cheltenham is a quiet village with an all purpose general store and a hair stylist.
