You can find almost every style of home in Streetsville, since it has grown and developed over 200 years. There are the historic homes all over the village centre of Queens Street, which truly adds to the local charm. Many of these original homes have been converted into businesses. The next development was a large area of post war homes in the 1950’s and 1960’s found north and west of the village. Where the lots were small, these homes still remain. Where the lots were big, ,any of the homes have been torn down into custom new builds, especially around Streetsville Secondary School. Then in the 70’s and 80’s, many more sub-division areas were built further north and south along the Credit River, offering the more common two storey, double car garage homes. Infill consists of town homes and low rise condos.
Although most of the historic homes have been converted into businesses along Queen St., there are still a small pocket that continue to be residential. Owning a historic home is truly a labour of love, and is well suited to the person intent on preserving history. But given the role these homes have in giving Streetsville it’s charm and history, it’s worth including them in the list, even though the remaining quantity if these homes is relatively small.
Much of “new” Streetsville was built in the 1950’s – 1970’s, and Vista Heights and Riverview were main developments of this era. A good number of these homes are bungalows and don’t have basements, which is rare in our climate. Homes in Vista Heights are popular with investors and renovators because of the good sized lots, and a wave of renovation continues today; tearing these old homes down and replacing with custom new builds.
in the 1970’s and 1980’s, massive amounts of development happened north and south along the credit river, creating sub-divsion pockets of large two storey homes, many of which back onto the river. This includes the Riverview and Creditview neighbourhoods. These homes range from large to executive, and have very high value due to their location.
Streetsville has a number of town house complexes located in the Historic Village, Vista Heights and Riverwood. Town homes range from entry level 1970’s homes to new build executive town houses, and most are condo town homes, which is the reason most complexes are meticulously maintained and landscaped. This is a great opportunity for a home buyer with a lower budget to get onto the property ladder in Streetsville.
