Housing Options

Hamilton is no stranger to historic housing or large estates, but also has a large selection of housing at any price, including an influx of new condominiums. Click here to see a full list of new homes/condos for sale.

Leisure Pursuits

The award-winning Royal Botanical Gardens is a 2,422-acre nature sanctuary considered the plant biodiversity hotspot of Canada. It is also a part of the Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve. The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum houses over 40 historical aircraft and an extensive aviation gift shop and gallery.

Also located in Hamilton is the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, the Hamilton Military Museum, the Museum of Steam and Technology, and the Whitehern Historic House and Gardens. Dundurn Castle is an 18,000-square-foot neoclassical mansion that was completed in 1835 by architect Robert Charles Wetherell.

Hamilton is also home to the Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League and the Bulldogs of the Ontario Hockey League; their main rivals are the Toronto Marlies.

Parks & Rec

If you are an active hiker, this is the area for you. The Bruce Trail, Canada’s oldest and longest marked footpath and a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, runs 890 kilometres along the Escarpment from Tobermory in the north to Niagara in the south. The section of the trail from Milton to Grimsby runs along the ancient shoreline of Lake Iroquois.

The Hamilton Conservation Authority operates several parks, including Westfield Heritage Village, Dundas Valley (home to the Hermitage Ruins), Fifty Point on Lake Ontario, Spencer Gorge/ Webster’s Falls, Christie Lake, Confederation Park, Eramosa Karst (filled with underground caves and streams) and Valens Lake campground.

Retail Therapy

Hamilton has a lively downtown with a large selection of boutiques, restaurants, cafés and salons. Jackson Square is Hamilton’s largest downtown shopping mall, which is also connected to FirstOntario Centre (formerly Copps Coliseum). The City Centre Mall and Lime Ridge Mall, Hamilton’s largest shopping destination with over 200 shops and services, round out the large shopping districts. And, of course, big box outlets are handily located.

Easy Access

Transit is a viable option in Hamilton. The HSR (Hamilton Street Railway) runs throughout the city and connects with Burlington. Its name is a legacy of the days when most of public transit vehicles were streetcars. The area is served well by highways, including the QEW and Highways 403, 6, 8 and 20, the Lincoln M. Alexander Parkway and the Red Hill Valley Parkway, making commutes into the Niagara Region or the GTA simple. GO Transit also goes in and out of Hamilton daily.

DiCenzo’s new project offers an exciting collection of modern towns and a contemporary midrise condominium

Monterey Heights in Charming Ancaster

An exciting new community Grand Opening is on its way to Ancaster from the renowned builder DiCenzo Homes. Their inspired new Monterey Heights community at 1034 Garner Road West and and Shaver Road will offer a collection of Modern Townes and a contemporary Midrise condominium. Set in desirable Ancaster in the GTA’s hottest market of Hamilton, Monterey Heights will bring more than just exquisite homes, but also more choice, more life, more Ancaster.

More Choice

The Modern Townes will feature a selection of two- and three-storey designs, with flexible two-bedroom plus den and three-bedroom, three-bathroom plans with garage, priced from the low $400,000s. DiCenzo understands that buyers’ needs vary so the designs offer choices. Maybe a family needs an extra bedroom, whereas another buyer dreams of a private study. For another, their list starts with an ensuite or a huge walk-in closet; it’s up to the purchaser’s preference.

Monterey Heights also offers stunning Midrise condominium residences. A selection of one-bedroom, one-bedroom plus den and two-bedroom suites are available, starting from the high $200,000s, with a select number of ground floor patio suites being offered.

More Ancaster

The community has done a great job in preserving the authenticity of the neighbourhood. The many museums are well attended and supported. Ancasterites treasure their iconic Ancaster Old Mill with fine dining restaurant, a favourite destination that captures the timeless character of this desirable setting. On a typical Sunday afternoon, you’ll find the community out enjoying their picture postcard streetscapes, heritage village shops, fine gardens and magnificent natural scenery. Eateries, cafes and restaurants along Wilson Street are always a perennial choice. Residents get together to explore artistic pursuits and discover hidden talents in local theatre troupes and arts groups that hold shows and performances throughout the year. The seasonal Farmer’s Market in the Ancaster Heritage Village is a popular place for fresh produce as well as to meet and chat with neighbours. Charming Ancaster continues to be one of the most desirable neighbourhoods in the GTA.

More Life

Active families looking for the perfect blend of outdoor pursuits, urban convenience and hometown welcome discover it all in Ancaster. Ask any longtime resident of the area and they will know that the Escarpment has over a hundred incredible waterfalls and cascades to discover. But incredibly, this fact is almost the neighbourhood’s little secret. This means that there are miles of relatively quiet hiking and biking trails to be enjoyed, and enough parks to have families finding new picnic spots for years to come. If golfing takes you out in all weathers, there are plenty of courses to try nearby. The exclusive Hamilton Golf and Country Club is in Ancaster as well as a number of other private and public courses in the vicinity. Ancaster is a splendid setting for active living.

More Amenities

The west Ancaster neighbourhood is undergoing a major revitalization that is bringing more amenities. Just steps from the door is all the Big Box shopping that Monterey residents could want: Walmart Supercentre, Longos, Canadian Tire, Lowes and Ancaster SmartCentre, featuring Costco, as well as financial, medical, eateries, coffee shops and more.

More Access

It’s hard to find a location that offers more convenient access to wherever your life is going. Living so close to the Lincoln M. Alexander Parkway/Hwy 403 and the QEW offers easy connections to Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville and the GTA as well the Niagara Region.

Not surprisingly, demand is high for these stunning contemporary Townes at Monterey Heights priced from the low $400,000s and luxury MidRise Condo residences starting from the high $200,000s. More Style, More Choice, More Ancaster.
