Cedarwood Community

Introduction to Cedarwood Community

Cedarwood is a vibrant, relatively new community in South Markham. It is close to community links, shopping, and community centres. The real estate varies from newer condo buildings to detached homes and there is a diverse demographic, which adds to its appeal.


Cedarwood community is bordered by Steeles Avenue in the south, Markham Road in the West and to the East, it is hugged by the CN railway tracks. The tracks taper from the southeast corner to the northwest corner – giving it a pie-shaped appearance. 

The Homes in Cedarwood Community

The Cedarwood neighbourhood comprises a mixture of detached homes, semi-detached homes, towns, and link homes, with the detached homes typically having 3-4 bedrooms ranging in size from 1700 square feet and up.

This makes Cedarwood a great choice for families. Recently, new apartment buildings and condominiums have been built in the west of the neighbourhood. This has made it more attractive to younger people, couples, and smaller families. The number of rentals has increased, but the majority of homes are owner-occupied.

The neighbourhood has a livability score of 78, meaning it is marked as a good place to live and is ranked as the #25 best place to live in Markham.

Transport & Commuting

Cedarwood is a 10 to 14min drive to most GO stations in Markham, which makes commuting downtown very easy. It is a 5min drive to the ON-407 toll road and 15 mins to the ON-401. If you want to skip the GO train, the TTC at Scarborough Town Centre is a 19min drive. Markham Road is a major bus route and so getting to other parts of Markham is not a problem for this neighbourhood. Also, there are stores and restaurants within walking and cycling distance

Adil Esmail

Hey there! I'm Adil. I work in Markham with Century 21 Percy Fulton with home sellers and home buyers. With my experience of 29 years and over 1,100 properties sold, I have helped many clients find their dream home or sell their home for more than they expected. The best praise I've ever received from a client was: "Our experience with Adil has been fantastic. He is so diligent in what he does. There was always instant communication from him. We feel we made the right decision in hiring him. I would recommend him to anyone. In fact, we had friends who were looking and we recommended him to them - amazing.” I don’t think of selling homes as a job, I think of it as a responsibility. Whether you’re selling and need a specific amount of money out of the sale or you’re buying and you have specific needs, I will not rest until you’re happy. What drives me is the smile on my clients faces when they get what they want. If you're looking for a Realtor who you can trust with your most valuable asset, I'd love to work with you. I'm humbled to have been recognized as one of the top teams in Canada for Century 21 for 13 consecutive years. When I'm not helping people, I love spending time with my kids and I also love sports.
