Why Should You Downsize to a Condo in Ancaster?

Share This Post:

As an affluent suburb of Hamilton, Ancaster is primarily associated with high-end real estate and a luxurious lifestyle. Quiet streets are lined with stunning, custom-built homes beautiful enough to be magazine-worthy. The downtown core boasts unique shopping boutiques, incredible restaurants, and anything you need to enjoy an elevated lifestyle. 

As exquisite as it sounds, downsizing in Ancaster may be more attainable than many people realize. This small, friendly town is welcoming to those from all backgrounds and at every stage in life! 

The condo market is especially fitting for anyone who wants the benefits of a smaller space while still enjoying a high quality of life and convenient amenities. Should you consider buying a condo in Ancaster? Let’s take a look at some of our favourite developments for downsizers and empty nesters.

The Bungalows of Ancaster South

When you think of downsizing to a condo, an image likely pops up of a small unit with cramped living space on a high floor where you can’t get anywhere without taking the elevator. But what if you don’t want to give up living on the main level, where you can get outside just by opening the back door? 

Enter a condo bungalow or bungaloft, where you truly get the best of all possible worlds. And at the Bungalows of Ancaster South, you can enjoy either floor plan with a condo-style service that means no lawn care or snow removal to worry about. The complex’s grounds are meticulously maintained, with a private driveway that results in primarily local traffic on the peaceful streets. With attractive stone, stucco, and brick exteriors, these beautiful residences will fill you with pride every time you come home. 

The Bungalows of Ancaster South provide peaceful parquettes for residents to enjoy and adequate visitor parking, making it easy to entertain guests. You will also have quick access to Hwy 403, the Meadowlands Shopping Centre, and numerous restaurants. Currently, this development includes homes located on Belfort Terrace, Menton Drive, Montpellier Trail, Toulon Avenue, and Burgundy Grove. 

Dundas is another beautiful community for many people looking to downsize. Learn more in our post Why Should Empty-Nesters Consider Dundas?

The Towne Manors

Downsizing is a fantastic way to simplify your life, but it does not mean downgrading. In fact, the spacious, beautiful suites of the Towne Manors at 71 Sulphur Springs Road just might feel like an upgrade. Technically, you are “downsizing” in terms of convenience since all exterior maintenance is covered. However, you will never feel as though you are sacrificing on living space.

These two-storey units offer generous square footage and can feel very luxurious and upscale. Some even back onto the woodlands, where it’s not uncommon for deer and other wildlife to make an appearance. Features include a cozy fireplace, hardwood floors, large patio doors, ample cupboard space and modern kitchen appliances, outdoor balconies and tons of natural light. 

Though surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty, The Town Manors is a short walk to the downtown core, where you’ll find a world of convenience, shopping, and dining opportunities.

Castle Ridge Town Villas of West Ancaster

What do you get when you cross the spaciousness of a bungalow with the convenience of a condo and the character of a loft? You get the bungalofts and bungalows at Castle Ridge Town Villas of West Ancaster, located at 40 Wesleyan Court. 

Both bungalow and bungaloft floor plans are available, where executive suites offer open-concept layouts, vaulted ceilings, gas fireplaces, and plenty of storage space. Some units back onto the woodlands, which provides a spectacular view from the comfort of your living space.

The development is close to the Dundas Valley Conservation Area, where you can spend hours communing with nature and revelling in the beauty of trees, foliage, and wildlife. But your downsizing lifestyle isn’t just about relaxation and the great outdoors. You’re also minutes away from Old Ancaster, where you can while away an afternoon at the many bustling shops, the farmer’s market, and various restaurants.

Landscapes by Starward Homes

With various addresses on either Landscapes Trail or Carmichael Trail, you will be close to green spaces like Meadowlands Community Park, while the shops, restaurants, and amenities at Golf Links Road are just a few blocks away.
