Throughout London’s history, Old North (together with Woodfield) has been recognized as the city’s preeminent residential neighbourhood. Nestled between the Downtown and Western University, it has long been home to educators and leading businesspersons.
The predominant form of housing in Old North is the large two-storey brick home, usually with four or more bedrooms, situated on large lots with mature trees.
Old North is a true heritage treasure for the city of London and, indeed, a part of the neighbourhood (the Hellmuth – St. James area) had the honour of being designated as London’s first Heritage Conservation District.
In 2012, the average selling price of homes in Old North was $359.020 on sales of 158 properties, excluding private sales.
