Located just south of Kortright East, the north portion of Pineridge is made up of modest, yet picturesque homes and yards on suburban streets. There are many amenities nearby, although you may need to get into your car to access most. The area boasts a mix of single family homes, townhomes and some larger, executive homes as you move further east.
You may notice the wall that claims “Westminster Woods” in gold letters on the side of the road, followed by a clock tower with a roundabout. This is the community of Westminster Woods, just north of Clairfields. as close as a gated community that you’ll find in Guelph. Pride of ownership is evident here and much like Pineridge, you’re near almost everything. A lot of homes here contribute a nominal monthly fee for maintenance of the trails and parks within the area.
This area is a favourite for families for many reasons: many other children in the area, good schools and proximity to the places that young families go including recreation centres, lessons and the University of Guelph.
