Masonville is a thriving neighbourhood in the north end of London, Ontario.

Back in the 1960s, the neighbourhood was mostly farmland. Housing development began in the 1980s, and this area of town has since developed with new residential and commercial phases underway. Now it’s a desirable neighborhood to live in with so many great amenities close by.
Small apartments, large single-family homes (with and without pools), one-floor condominiums, townhouses and ranches make up a majority of the properties for sale in Masonville.
