A far cry from the typical Southern Ontario bedroom community, Halton Hills is a vibrant and scenic little town that lays claim to a wide variety of real estate options tailor-made for deep-pocketed and low-budget house hunters alike.

Conveniently situated 40 km west of Toronto, Halton Hills is an ideal stomping grounds for big-city go-getters who like to kick up their feet in more relaxed environs when the working day is done. The city also boasts a slowly growing economy of its own built largely around the agricultural, construction, retail, manufacturing, and nursery industries.

Rather than play host to one demographic only, Halton Hills is a popular residential destination for a variety of age groups. Seniors are continually drawn to the city because it boasts ultra-modern retirement communities and numerous active living centers. Low crime rates and a plethora of highly-esteemed private schools make the Hills a popular choice for families with kids. Many singles and young couples, meanwhile, are drawn to the highly affordable housing structures that have sprouted up in recent years in urbanized areas like Acton and Georgetown. Whether you’re a card-carrying CARP member or part of the Millennial Generation, you’re sure to find a home in Halton Hills that meets your needs and fits your budget.

Somewhat unique among small towns in the Golden Horseshoe, Halton Hills has a landscape that ranges from rural (Norval and Glen Williams) to suburban (the bulk of the city) to urban (Georgetown’s Main Street district, downtown Acton). With an ambiance that fits every mood, Halton Hills has, unsurprisingly, grown from roughly 48,000 residents in the year 2000 to more than 60,000 (and counting) today.

Like any wide-open rural community, Halton Hills is largely car-dependent. Certain areas, however, such as the historic downtown Georgetown and Acton areas, are perfect for sidewalk surfers and bike riders. A GO Train station in Georgetown, meanwhile, connects commuters to Toronto, Mississauga, and the rest of the region.

Halton Hills consists of several different neighbourhoods and hamlets, but for all practical purposes, there are three: Georgetown, Acton, and, for lack of a better term, “the Rural Rest.”

“The Rural Rest” includes the many agricultural clusters like Limehouse, Hornby, Stewarttown, and Norval that dominate much of the landscape. Many homes in these areas are situated on multi-acre plots of private farmland. If quiet country living is your cup of tea, these quaint little hamlets are just what you’re looking for.

Georgetown and Acton are the city’s two main residential hubs and include the bulk of the houses for sale in Halton Hills. Both communities have historic, walker-friendly downtowns surrounded by a mix of both well-established and newly-constructed houses, townhomes, and rentals. If you’re looking for a home in a charming and serene neighbourhood that’s a stone throw from both the hustle and bustle of the big city and the gently rolling hills of the countryside, look no further than Georgetown or Acton.

If you love the Great Outdoors, you’re sure to enjoy Halton Hills, which boasts 4 conservation areas and a seemingly endless string of parks, nature trails (including the epic, picturesque Bruce Trail), public gardens, and scenic views (an inevitability when you have the Niagara Escarpment running diagonally through your core). The city is also home to a pair of skate parks, two leash-free dog parks, 25 baseball fields, 4 tennis courts, 5 golf courses, and 20-plus soccer/rugby fields. Numerous ice pads are dotted throughout the city as well, especially in the Georgetown area, one of the first Canadian communities to implement organized youth hockey leagues (hence, the “Home of the Little NHL” moniker). If living a healthy, active life is a top priority of yours, you’ve come to the right place.

Other popular attractions for locals and tourists alike include a flourishing visual arts centre, a couple Farmers’ Markets, one of the region’s most expansive (and least expensive) outlet malls, and several heritage sites and museums. The charming downtown Georgetown and Acton areas, meanwhile, are the places to be if you’re in the mood for wining, dining, gallery-hopping, or good old-fashioned people watching.
