The Imperial South neighbourhood has long been a safe haven in the city for families looking to truly find it all. Affordable housing with plenty of style options, coupled with mature lots on beautiful winding tree-lined streets set the stage for an ideal location to call home. Since the 1970’s the neighbourhood has been highly sought after, and the recent development of some of the best family services and amenities in the city has only served to fuel the demand. Big or small, new or resale, West Guelph has all of your options covered.
It is all about value for your housing dollar here in Imperial South. Square footages that are far from reach in other areas of the city are suddenly available to most budgets. Median sale prices fall below the city averages, at the proximity to all of your daily needs, highway access, public transit, great schools and an abundance of public parks that make the total living experience the true value of the neighbourhood.
A wide variety of housing styles exists, anywhere from entry-level town homes to estate-sized family homes and everything in between. Many homes back onto parks and school grounds, and usually don't last long when they head to public market. The area around Deerpath Park provides some larger footprints with homes typically constructed in the past few decades. In Parkwood Gardens to the west, the homes are a little more modest in size and very friendly to walk through the leafy crescents and courts.
Convenience is a major reason to consider Imperial South. The proximity to the everyday shopping and the West End Recreation Centre are a huge initial draw to the area for many families. Those needing to travel west towards K/W for work, love the short access to Highway 7 and the reduced travel time every day. Short walking distances to most schools only helps to continue the trend of convenience.
If easy and affordable living without compromise is the name of the game, then Imperial South should rise to the top of your search.
