Armitage Village is located in the centre of Newmarket, bounded by Mulock on the north side and Yonge st. on the west. Then it is bounded on the east and south side by Bailey Ecological park which is the southern boundary of Newmarket.
The area is very defined and self enclosed by its wonderful abundance of greenspace to the east and south and Yonge St to west with Mulock Rd to the north. For this reason it is a low traffic area with lots of cresents and courts used only by the residents.
The Neighbourhood is well laid out with lots of curving crescents and courts. The Neighbourhood sides onto a natural protected ravine on the east and adjoins the northern border of St Andrews valley Golf course, which can be seem from many of the homes backing onto that open ravine. On the west is the hustle and bustle of Yonge St with all the conveniences of large and small stores and businesses, as well as fast food.
This community was a product of the last of the boom years in late 1980’s and as it was being completed it fell prey to the falling market. The early purchasers paid dearly for these homes and the last purchasers reaped the benefit of the falling prices during those bad economic times of the early early 90’s.
The Homes of Armitage Village
Although the area is mostly larger detached homes on extra large, deep lots there is also a mix of both freehold and condominium townhomes on the south and west border, with a small enclave of luxury style semi detached on the far south border overlooking the ravine that forms the border between the Towns of Newmarket and Aurora.
Homes range from $270,000 to Over $800,000. The economy was booming while these homes were introduced to the market, money seemed to be no object so lot sizes we’re very generous with 50 ft frontages and the homes were mostly large models with huge kitchens, ceramics and hardwood, curved staircases and loads of bathrooms.
The homes in this area show definite pride of ownership and most boast many green thumbs, judging by the lovely landscaping that’s evident during the summer months.
