Centrally located and close to TONS of amenities are the houses for sale in the Downtown & Terrace Hill neighbourhoods of Brantford! This is an amazing spot for investors and first time homebuyers!

OVERVIEW:

Being so close to the centre of Brantford means you’re close to all the action. Festivals, shopping, restaurants and shows make this a bustling and energetic part of the city.  The downtown core and Terrace Hill areas are ripe with newly remodelled century homes, quaint Brantford cottages, loads of student housing and family friendly neighbourhoods all nestled within walking distance of shops, restaurants and parks.

This is a phenomenal place for real estate investors to purchase as there are many families, students and single executives looking to lease a property.  Because this is one of the older parts of Brantford, there are so many character homes of different sizes, you’re sure to find something you’ll love!  Brantford boasts several pretty parks downtown with mature trees to enjoy. And the Terrace Hill area offers meandering streets on different elevations so you can often find a gorgeous view of the city during sunset!

HOMES:

You’ll find quite a variety of homes in this part of the city. Savvy investors love this location for their rental properties, and with the nearby University there’s no shortage of tenants. Many larger homes can and have been split into multi-family residences making this an investor’s dream.  This is one of the more mature parts of Brantford so you’ll find historic homes of all sizes, many of which are being remodelled to today’s modern standards.

Tidy Brantford Cottages, one and 1.5 storey homes are found dotted along these streets, but you can also find incredible century homes with all the character and charm you’d expect: wide baseboards & casings, high ceilings, plaster detail work and more.
