= marks the location of this home
We are situated in a mature urban neighbourhood on the edge of the Niagara Escarpment bordering the Bruce Trail (a 700 km. nature trail fom Niagara Falls to Tobermory Geogian Bay). There is a panoramic view of the city of Hamilton(which is a hot bed for music, art, and culture) from the front windows. Situated on the bus route and only a ten minute walk to downtown and its shops, churches, museums, bus depot, and restaurants. We are a 15 minute drive from Hamilton International airport and about an hour's drive from Toronto's Pearson International Airport. Hamilton is central to the Golden Horseshoe which stretches from Niagara Falls (60 km.) to Toronto (60km.) on the Western end of Lake Ontario. Many hiking and cycling trails are easily accessible from the back door. Wine tours are a very popular activity in the Niagara region.
