When we first saw this remarkable setting, we knew that this would be a perfect place for families. We call it Brant West. It’s the very best of Brantford, where rolling countryside is over the next hill and downtown amenities are a short drive away. An inspired family-friendly new neighborhood of modern upscale detached homes and townhomes. We think it’s a perfect place to live. Not exactly city, not exactly country, but perfectly in between.
Brantford has more than 70 km of trails running through the largest watershed in southern Ontario. The Gordon Glaves Grand River Loop takes trail users on a 19 km scenic tour that travels along both sides of the river. The trails are ideal for hiking, jogging, cycling, exploring nature, and even crosscountry skiing and snowshoeing. Just half an hour away is Hamilton, called the Waterfall Capital of the World, where you’ll be amazed by dozens of beautiful waterfalls tumbling over rocky cliffs. Brantford is also a golfer’s paradise with everything from beginners’ 9-hole courses to championship links. Beautiful parks such as D’Aubigny Creek Park, Waterworks Park and Brant Conservation Area offer acres of scenic attractions for the whole family. When it comes to outdoor recreation, Brantford is in a class by itself.

We designed Brant West to be a community where kids can have the kind of childhood they deserve. This is a family-friendly neighbourhood with modern upscale designs and gently curving streets set between open space and parkland, with our local school at the heart of the community. With townhomes, singles and custom lots backing onto woods, this is the first of many phases in our Master Plan, including a wide mix of homes for every budget and every family.
