REAL ESTATE INSIGHTS

East Gwillimbury is currently experiencing some of the largest housing growth in the Greater Toronto Area. This town is booming with over 7000 houses to be built between 2016 and 2026. The widening of many municipal and regional roads over the past few years has created full access to prime real estate areas.  With nature and farming still highly appreciated in growth plans, it’s no wonder families are relocating to one of the gorgeous communities it has to offer. With price points slightly below Newmarket and Aurora, East Gwillimbury will be sought after for years to come. Once you move to this town, you likely will never move again.

PEOPLE & LIFESTYLE

East Gwillimbury is a collection of close-knit neighbourhoods dedicated to their families and community. Residents enjoy living in a country setting with its scenic landscapes and breathtaking views. The Holland River winds its way through the township connecting small communities, working farms, subdivisions and dense conservation areas. Hiking and bicycle trails, waterways, marinas and country markets are only moments away from your front door. East Gwillimbury gives you the chance to get involved in the community with a variety of town charity events, music festivals, sporting activities, town fairs or the always-popular neighbourhood street barbeques.

COMMUNITIES

Holland Landing

This community was once a post for the Northwest Fur Company and a canoe-launching site for Indigenous Peoples for centuries. Holland Landing was viewed as a potential shipping and defense point between York (Toronto) and Georgian Bay. The community has seen steady and gradual growth over the years with the establishment of local businesses, stores and library while keeping its cottage-country charm.

Mount Albert

Quakers originally settled in this small village in 1821. Over the years, the village grew slowly with farms, houses, wool and lumber mills, shops and two hotels. Recently, the village has experienced more growth with the construction of new subdivisions. This area promises to see significant growth for business and new neighbourhoods. The Highway 404 extension and upgrades to Woodbine Avenue make travelling in and out of the area much easier for commuters.

Queensville

Originally a village found along concession roads used by Quaker settlers, Queensville was built in 1843. This cute and charming town has an original rural town feel that is usually only found in remote Ontario communities.  This community will be home to significant growth over the next few years with the construction of new homes and schools.

Sharon

Settled by United Empire Loyalists and Quakers, Sharon was first known as “Hope” in the early 1800’s. In 1801, David Wilson and his family moved to the area to create a new community. He decided to separate from the Quakers and start a new congregation called The Children of Peace. Wilson created a local meeting place now famously known as the Sharon Temple.

Green Lane Corridor

East Gwillimbury recently expanded the Green Lane Corridor to attract more businesses and jobs whilst building new homes and transit options in the area. The town has also seen Highway 404 open an exit/entrance at Green Lane and Queensville Side Road leading all the way to Georgina. A Secondary Plan for future expansion is already in the planning stages and it is expected to rival that of Ontario’s greatest towns.

Rural Areas

East Gwillimbury’s rural area includes the protected lands of the Oak Ridges Moraine and Provincial Greenbelt. The region is home to agriculture and aggregate resources, protected green space, rural commercial and industrial areas, recreational areas and a few residential developments.
