Living In The North End of Cornwall
Cornwall’s north end includes several distinct subdivisions such as Eamer’s Corners, Rosedale Terrace and Northwoods Estates. The area is primarily residential, with a few businesses along the main Pitt Street and Cornwall Centre Road lines. In recent years the region has enjoyed a bit of a resurgence, mixing new builds with older homes to create a unique living experience.
Subdivisions here are perfect for raising a family, and indeed, a majority of the homes here are single family units surrounded by nice parks, schools and churches. In many ways, this region of Cornwall is a typical urban landscape for raising a family, but without that ‘urban sprawl’ feel you would get in larger metropolitan areas.
Working in the downtown of Cornwall is a simple 3 minute drive south on the main artery of Pitt St., so although you are on the outskirts of town, you are never more than a few minutes away from everything.
Although technically in South Stormont, Rosedale Terrace has long been a favourite place for larger single family homes with large lots. The area still has some expansion space and building lots are still available. The wide streets do not feature sidewalks, however the small neighbourhood is very kid, and family friendly.
Cornwall’s true north end subdivision is situated just north of the 401 overpass and features a school, a few hundred homes, several parks and wooded areas as well as direct access to Highway 138. The homes here are a bit older and range in size and value.
Almost entirely a single family home subdivision built by J.F. Markell homes, this vibrant subdivision is divided into two sections, with some homes in the older section being 15 years old or so, and the newer section, to the South East, mainly homes built in the past 5 years. Wide streets, rolling hills, sidewalks and parkland are all features of this beautiful neighbourhood. Only a few more building lots are available however purchasing a home in this neighbourhood is common with several listings appearing each year.
Living in the north end of Cornwall is a very family-friendly choice. Ideal for growing families, children and adults alike, the area really does offer a lot of safe spaces to play, parks, churches and a newly renovated school (English Public). Never more than 5 minutes from restaurants, shopping and groceries, Cornwall’s north end truly offers the best of both space and convenience.
There are currently some building lots in this area of town and several listings on the market at any given period.
