Brant Hills Real Estate Listings and Information
Northwest Burlington offers its residents a hard to beat combination of natural beauty and sights. 2 quiet popular family residential subdivisions who border each other are the Brant Hills and Tyandaga subdivisions. The area they occupy traces its history back to Joseph Brant a famous warrior Mohawk chief from the late 1700 and early 1800’s and its envious proximity to the Escarpment . It was also the location of a well known local family who farmed this area and on whose property these subdivision were developed from. If you would like to see how its descendants lived in the late 1800’s you can visit Ireland House an original historical farm museum preserved for all to visit just off Upper Middle Road and Guelph Line. The Fishers were descendants of the pioneer “Ireland “ family. Pat Quinn of the Toronto Maple Leafs is a relation to the Irelands as well. The original Quinn farmhouse is located on Dundas Rd just west of Guelph Line.
One of the best local sights I believe is the view of the surrounding area from the corner of Brant Street and Dundas Road . To the east you can see Toronto and all its vast area. The CN tower, Lake Ontario and more. To the South you can see beautiful Lake Ontario and downtown Burlington. Just minutes from where you stand you can reach the lake or within a short drive Toronto. Streets in Brant Hills are wide with tall mature 30 ft + trees lining both sides of the street. Recreation and sports facilities are within walking distance. Like to jog? Trying running up or down Brant Street or Upper Middle Rd. The elevation is quite challenging. Like nature trails? Try Rambo Creek which meanders behind residential properties and along a lovely creek bed. Play baseball, soccer or tennis try the Brant Hills Community Centre. Library? Same location. Schools? Six schools both public and catholic separate are within easy walking distance. Shopping? Banks, drug, grocery stores are in most cases less than a 10 minute walk from most of the community.
