Idlewood Area in Kitchener
Nestled next to the slopes of noble Chicopee, Kitchener-Waterloo’s very own mountain and ski/snowboard/summer resort, is the neighbourhood of Idlewood. Located in the east of Kitchener, a stone’s throw away from both the Grand River, let me assure you of one thing: Idlewood residents are never idle, if they don’t want to be.
Let’s dive in.
Idlewood’s boundaries are made up by Ottawa Street North in the north; Lackner Boulevard in the east; Fairway Road North in the south (that North bit’s a bit of a misnomer in this instance); and Old Chicopee Drive in the west.
Two advantages of Idlewood are its proximity to some of Kitchener-Waterloo’s most renowned natural attractions, and its ease of access to the rest of Kitchener-Waterloo (through the Conestoga Parkway, primarily, but also arterial roads such as Fairway and King).
Idlewood is a calm, quiet suburb, perfect for people (whether individuals, couples, or families) looking primarily for a place to call home. Prices for detached homes here tend to range between $450 000 to over $1 million, but occasionally semi-detached homes will enter the market for a lower price.
