Shoreacres Neighbourhood

A quiet-by-design, residential neighbourhood for those seeking luxury and privacy.

The Vibe

Together, roomy detached homes, expansive secluded lots, and gracious tree canopied streets have created some of the most expensive, interesting, and coveted real estate in Burlington. The Shoreacres neighbourhood is beautiful, charming, and historied – with claim to its own haunted mansion.

An excellent school district, residents are typically affluent young and mature professional families, or empty nesters and retirees that have lived in their homes for decades.

What is Burlington's Shoreacres Neighbourhood all About

Homes of every detached style line the streets of Shoreacres. Architectural wonders, generous in space and amenities dominate the landscape closest to the Lake, and modern, newly built infill homes can only be described as stately. Traditional, raised, or ranch style bungalows, split levels and two storey residences are found in the more northern section of the community. Attached properties and condos are non-existent.

The Paletta Lakefront Park and Mansion is divided into formal landscaped estate lands and the natural state of Shoreacres Creek. The park, with suspended iron bridges, fragrant floral gardens, nature trails, wildlife, and waterfront vistas is popular for family outings and photographs. And then … there’s the 11,000 square foot mansion. A three storey masterpiece, it includes a gatehouse, a children’s dollhouse, and stables. Rich in historic value dating back to the land’s first owner, Laura Secord (c.1809), the property changed hands many times until in 1930 Edythe Merriam Mackay built the mansion itself, resplendent in luxurious furnishings and fixtures. There are numerous ghost stories attached to the main house, and third-party paranormal events have been held, but the mansion primarily accommodates private social gatherings and weddings.

The Burlington Centre Mall or the Burloak RioCan Centre are conveniently close, and the Appleby Village Mall is a quick drive away for groceries, retail and professional services. North of New Street, plazas and free standing businesses are abundant and fulfill everyday shopping requirements and dining options.

Lakefront access, breathtaking properties with homes for the discerning, or sheltered lots awaiting their dream house, Shoreacres is a pleasantly walkable and affluent pocket of Burlington. A quiet-by-design, residential neighbourhood for those seeking luxury and privacy.
