Homes in Vaughan
Vaughan’s historic villages have their own distinct look and feel when it comes to housing. Downtown Woodbridge along Woodbridge Avenue, west of Islington Avenue, features a nice mix of heritage properties, as well as newer townhomes and detached houses that have been well designed to fit into this historic community. There are even a few low-rise condominium apartment buildings in the downtown core. On the outskirts of downtown Woodbridge you will find numerous new home subdivisions featuring mostly detached and semi-detached homes.
The Village of Maple, is located north of Rutherford Road and east of Highway 400. Maple’s downtown core has a nice selection of heritage homes. The rural Maple countryside is being transformed into subdivisions of detached and semi-detached homes. Kleinburg’s downtown heritage district features a small number of heritage homes, mixed in with a variety of ranch-style bungalows and infill housing developments. Kleinburg also features a handful of low density new home subdivisions that overlook conservation lands.
Thornhill has the highest density of housing in the City of Vaughan. The older housing stock here closer to Sreeles Avenue consists of modest detached and semi-detached starter homes, as well as townhouses and condominiums. The hugely popular Thornhill Woods new home subdivision is located further north along Bathurst Street. Old Thornhill Village (located at Yonge and Centre Streets) features many heritage homes that are surrounded by contemporary estate homes that are situated on exceptionally large lots in a nicely treed setting.
