Tansley, or “Tansley Woods” as you’ll often hear residents call it, is an unpretentious suburb tucked into the central Burlington with plenty of personality. This neighbourhood offers plenty of convenient businesses directly within its boundaries, and has a strong and proud sense of community. Take a look and all the live/work townhouses and local businesses that have sprouted up over the years as an example.
A relatively new suburb, development began in the late 1990’s and finished around the mid-2000s. There’s a wide range of detached, semi-detached, town homes, and condos, giving buyers plenty of choice. Detached homes are well-constructed and are usually 2-story builds with decent sized lots. After all, if you’ve got a growing family, there’s nothing better than a backyard! Compared to other areas of Burlington, this is definitely an affordable area. Homes that back onto the forest are stunning and in serious demand. They usually sell pretty quickly, so if that’s what you’re after make sure to let us know!
Families definitely rule this safe and quiet suburb. You’ll often see entire families—and their furry friends—strolling through sections of the beautiful walking trails that wind through the forest. Because there are some lovely seniors’ residences and plenty of condos, you’ll also see a mix of everybody.
Those walking trails are just the tip of the iceberg. Like most of Burlington, the quick access to those pristine outdoor areas and the “2-minutes from everything” convenience are hard to beat.
There aren’t actually any schools directly within Tansley’s borders, but there are plenty of options a quick bus ride away. These include:
Dr. Charles Best Public School (JK-grade 5)
Sir Ernest MacMillan Public School (JK-grade 8)
Canadian Martyrs Catholic Elementary School (JK-grade 8)
Trinity Christian School (JK-grade 12)
Lester B. Pearson High School
