A little more about Headon Forest

As we mentioned, Headon Forest gives you a Millcroft feel, without the Millcroft prices. Most of the homes in Headon Forest were built in the late 1980s and early 90’s, so they are established, but not old. Trees are mature, but not so big they are likely to split in a wind storm and drop a massive branch on your car. The vast majority of properties you will find in Headon Forest are spacious 4 bedroom, 2-storey, detached brick houses with double-car garages. Again, screw tandem parking or brushing snow off your car every winter morning.

The homes in Headon Forest are likely to appeal to families who are finding their present property is bursting at the seams. If you can’t sit in your living room without your eyes being assaulted by primary colours, and blinking plastic toys, or park a single car in your garage because the whole thing is filled with bikes and wagons and strollers, then you might be ready to consider buying a home in Headon Forest. You may also want to consider a home in Headon Forest if you have always dreamed of having your own swimming pool. In Headon Forest the lots are typically 50ft x 100ft, making them perfect for building that backyard oasis, or finding one already established.

Given that the homes are now around 30 years old, you will find that most have been recently updated with new roofs and windows. That being said, there are a few fixer-upper opportunities for the DIYers out there.

Headon Forest families love being close to amazing parks, hockey rinks, soccer pitches and football fields. They’re also walking distance from the little necessities like grocery stores, drug stores, and coffee shops. Living in Headon Forest also means having access to great schools such as:

  • C H Norton Public Elementary School
