Homes in Ajax
Ajax has a large amount of executive housing located along its waterfront. The houses on Lake Driveway enjoy spectacular waterfront views. The landmark Breakers condominiums at the west end of Lake Driveway includes many suites with waterfront exposures. As you travel north through downtown Ajax you will find a large selection of townhouses and apartment buildings, built during the 1970s and 80s.
In the middle of Ajax you will come upon ‘Veterans Villages’ that date back to the 1940s. The style of house found here is referred to as ‘Victory Houses’. These simple but functional houses were built during the 1940s, by the government of Canada to provide affordable housing for workers employed at military manufacturing plants. Ajax has the largest number of Victory Houses in the Greater Toronto Area. This is not surprising when you consider the contribution the Town of Ajax made to the war effort.
North of Highway 2, Ajax is still a predominantly rural town, however this is quickly changing as new home subdivisions seem to be popping up everywhere in the expansive open spaces of the countryside. Pickering Village, centred at Church Street and Kingston Road, contains a sizeable collection of well preserved heritage homes that date back to the mid 1800s.
