Story of the Avon

AVON is a vibrant fusion of urban and rural cultures. Located in the pristine Avon River Valley, the area’s towns and hamlets are built around the plentiful food supply rising from the rich soil bed, and a splendid sun belt that shines brightly.

Avonites are connected to the land and connected to each other. They are distinct, interesting individuals with a world view.

Rooted in history, pioneers and adventurers across the centuries have found, lost and reclaimed this nourishing land of plenty. Today’s residents are diverse, multifaceted and have come to AVON from many walks of life, bringing their experiences to the district, and finding welcoming hands and hearts to shepherd them into their new community.

Avonites are sometimes city folk looking for a better way. They work in Metro but want to live in a culturally interesting and stimulating environment, that doesn’t say “suburb.” In the AVON, they enjoy a close-knit, vibrant lifestyle that offers boutique shopping, a strong “buy-local” culture, a cool arts scene, old-world architecture, and massive value for their real estate dollar.

Fresh, local food and wine is de rigueur for Avonites. Newcomers are happily shown the ways of the land by their neighbours and new friends. From hobby gardens to small commercial farms, to award winning wineries, Avonites enjoy access to the bounty this scenic, pastoral land offers. And when home cooking takes a break, Avonites enjoy a myriad of bistros and dining rooms that stimulate the palette with locally sourced, worldly cuisine.

Fueled by nature’s goodness, residents take full advantage of the “ultimate weekend” right at their doorstep. Horse breeding is popular in the AVON, giving residents plenty of access to equestrian culture, from owning and caring for their own horses, to enjoying local ranch hospitality. The perfect ski day can happen in a moment’s notice, with residents on the slopes before the first snowflake hits the ground. With brilliant day skies and true dark, starry nights, outdoor recreation is well developed and limitless.

Avonites are connected to the land and connected to each other. They are distinct, interesting individuals with a world view. They value healthy, balanced, stimulating lifestyles, and are willing to travel the extra mile for something unique, special and plentiful rather than settling on the expected city suburban lifestyle. If this sounds like you, welcome to the AVON.
