Milton, Acton & Georgetown all have the small town charm, and are close to the city

Like so many other areas surrounding Toronto, Halton Hills – including Milton, Acton and Georgetown – is seeing its own spate of new development, as buyers head out of the city in search of larger homes and lower prices.

And in these areas, the predominant new housing type is still lowrise, though, also like other areas, new developments typically offer a mix of singles, semis and townhomes.

Small-town charm

Despite their proximity Toronto, these areas still boast much of their small-town charm, however. Established estate properties and historic neighbourhoods are now being joined by new masterplanned communities, including homes for young families.

Milton, the largest and fastest growing town in the area, features newer amenities such as the Mattamy National Cycling Centre and Milton Centre for the Arts to complement Kelso Conservation Area and Rattlesnake Point. And don’t forget the prized golf courses in the area, including Royal Ontario, Rattlesnake Point, Greystone, Granite Ridge, Piper’s Heath, Georgetown, Halton Country Club and Hornby Glen.

Georgetown has a notable cultural vibe, with live theatres and art galleries, including the Williams Mill Visual Arts Centre in the historical village of Glen Williams, The Gallery at the Halton Hills Library and Cultural Centre, Beaumont Mill, also in Glen Williams, and many private studios.

And who could forget Acton, perhaps most well-known for the Olde Hide House, Canada’s largest leather store? This famous leather goods retailer isn’t just a shopping opportunity, however – though it is worth the drive to Acton. Indeed, the tanning industry has been an important part of the local history since the mid 1800s, thus this heritage and the Olde Hide House are forever woven together.

For those looking for more tradition retailers, Milton, Acton and Georgetown are all a short drive from Toronto Premium Outlets, located just off Hwy. 401 at Steeles Avenue and Trafalgar Road, which opened in 2013.

Nature’s doorstep

Perhaps one of the most appealing attractions to Halton Hills is its location at nature’s doorstep – alongside the Niagara Escarpment. Besides Kelso, the area also has some of the most beautiful parks and trails in the province, including the Crawford Lake Conservation Area, the Glen Eden Ski & Snowboard Centre and the Mount Nemo Conservation Area.

If all that isn’t enough, Milton, Acton and Georgetown are all also blessed with easy highway access. Hwy. 7, connecting Acton and Georgetown; Regional Road 8 (Steeles Avenue) between Milton and Brampton; Regional Road 25 connects Acton and Milton; and Hwy. 25 connects with Hwys. 401 and 407.
