The Fairmont Neighbourhood
This area is a mix of residential and industrial construction. Situated west of Highbury Avenue and north of the Thames River, the Fairmont area straddles Hale to the east of Highbury and Hamilton and Gore roads to the north of the river. The residential mix is an established neighbourhood that is part of the 1961 annexation, composed mostly of small ranches, bungalows and story and a half style properties. Generally the houses are smaller than average, but are located on large lots. With prices that are slightly below the city average, combined with an extensive park network running through the middle of the area and easy access to the highways, this neighbourhood is often very attractive as starter homes for young families.
