Ancaster is a fast-growing community within the City of Hamilton, Ontario with a population of over 33,000 people. An estimated 7 percent of the City of Hamilton residents live in Ancaster. Known for its gorgeous trails, parks, escarpment views, and historic buildings, it’s no surprise Ancaster is an attractive place to call home for many growing families. With the Bruce Trail and Niagara Escarpment running through the community, Ancaster has a comfortable and relaxing vibe while maintaining its strategic position to central Hamilton and access to Highway 403 and Lincoln Alexander Parkway. Ancaster is about an hour drive to both Niagara Falls and Toronto. Because of Ancaster’s more distinguished location, neighbourhoods are usually built to a higher standard. Homes even in the same neighbourhoods tend to vary more in size and architectural design in comparison to other locations giving Ancaster a more custom and welcoming feel. It’s not uncommon to see developers leave buyers with a very limited supply of options to choose from in many new developments; and thankfully, Ancaster sets the bar for builders to produce more high-quality custom homes, avoiding many of the cookie-cutter developments that are far too common in other locations across Ontario. Not only are the residential properties loaded with character, but many of the locally owned and operated business and restaurants have traditional look and feel to them. There’s no shortage of shopping to be done in Ancaster with the big box stores in the Meadowlands and charming shops on Wilson Street. There’s something for people of all ages! Piecing together all of Ancaster’s amazing features makes it easy to understand why it continues to grow and develop into one of the most sought after locations in Ontario.
