21 Majestic St, Whitby
21 Majestic St – Renowned for its fine natural harbor, the Town of Whitby is an attractive spot for families looking for the convenience and amenities of a big city along with the quiet and charm of a suburb. Headquartered in the Durham Region, the town has grown rapidly over the last few years and is home to many executive families who have discovered the community’s well-planned and executed neighbourhoods, its easy access to Toronto and the superb services that the town’s authorities ensure are available to every resident.
Named after the seaport town of Whitby, in Yorkshire, England, the town is steeped in history and is rich in culture. In fact, its main shopping area reflects the town’s past through the grand and beautiful Victorian buildings that house the over 400 stores, restaurants and businesses found along the street. Another enduring monument to Whitby’s past is the highly respected Trafalgar Castle private school for girls, which was founded in 1872 and built as an Elizabethan Castle. A weekly farmer’s market operates from May to October while newer shopping districts are being set up to accommodate the emerging areas of the town.
Whitby has one of the best-planned towns in the city. Strict architectural guidelines have been established for new construction and it has meant that every neighbourhood offers a good mix of attractive homes to meet every taste and need. There are also a number of excellent schooling options serving all residents including Catholic, private and Montessori – junior and senior grades. Getting to the city is quick thanks to highways as well as easy access to bus services and the Go Train.
Those who enjoy outdoor activities will be pleased with Whitby’s fine marina as well as its picturesque 5.7km waterfront trail, which is ideally suited to walkers, joggers and cyclists. A sports complex provides challenges for the winter months while two fantastic conservation areas – the Lynde Shores Conservation Area and the Heber Down Conservation area provide birding, hiking and canoeing options to those so inclined.
Whitby is a lovely town perfectly suited to those who want a comfortable lifestyle close to high-end services and plenty of recreational facilities – all within easy commute of the city.
