Willow West

Guelph real estate: Willow West/Sugarbush/West Acres

Willow West (AKA West Willow Woods) was Ryan’s stomping grounds in his younger years, so he knows it well! In fact, in the early 1980’s much of this area was still farmers field- but that’s changed a lot!

Where is West Acres?

Geographically, this is a large area made up of 3 distinct neighbourhoods: Willow West, Sugarbush and WestAcres, all with unique differences.

If you like the style of 1980’s homes, you may want to consider the Sugarbush and WestAcres sections, if you’re looking for slightly older and more options besides detached homes, you may want to consider Willow West.

Amenities in West Acres

West Willow Woods in northwest Guelph continues to expand outwards and as it does, many new amenities keep popping up. This area is home to Guelph’s only Costco, as well as the West End Community Centre (City managed ice rinks, pools and more).

Demand for this area is increasing as young families move out of their first time home and into a larger home. Willow West (AKA West Willow Woods) features a wide variety of home styles and sizes- from bungalow detached houses to a variety of newer townhouses.

Good examples of this area can be found on Suzanna Dr, Sugarbush Pl and Meadow Cres.

We’re now starting to see a lot of condos being build in this area.
