If you want everything within easy walking distance, than there truly is no other neighbourhood in South Guelph with an offering quite like Campus Estates. A variety of shopping plazas, grocery stores, restaurants and family services are all accessible on foot. Residents spend their weekends and evenings congregating in parks, in cul-de-sac's and on backyard decks, enjoying the quiet company of their family and neighbours.
The neighbourhood was designed and developed mostly in the 80’s and 90’s when spacious lots, wide open parklands and sidewalks down both sides of the street were still a major priority in urban planning. If you want an affordable family home in a great neighbourhood and have aspirations of putting in a pool, Campus Estates is one of the best bets in the city.
Home construction is mainly centred around family living, with an abundance of design options. Tree lined, with large setbacks from the streets, combined with mature landscaping and big backyards sets the common theme. Most homes are being purchased and updated to lend to a more modern interior as families rediscover this gem of a location. This neighbourhood is positioned around St. Michael’s Catholic Elementary School, Jean Little Public Elementary School and three good sized parks.
Home values have been historically stable, realizing significant increases year over year. Younger families are re-discovering the neighbourhood and re-investing into the homes and properties as many consider the migration from more recently built peripheral subdivisions. With large property sizes, solid construction and many crescents and courts, Campus Estates should continue to be a safe haven for an investment into your home and your family's lifestyle.
Make sure to put Campus Estates on your list if you are searching for that idyllic, quiet, walkable and friendly South Guelph neighbourhood.
