Homeowners can take advantage of a comprehensive list of activities that rival any all-inclusive vacation destination.

A king-size bed can easily be accommodated in the master bedroom, which includes a private ensuite with a soaker tub. A main floor laundry room and an open-concept kitchen with a large granite island and a pantry are perfectly convenient. A partially covered deck is the ideal space for entertaining and everyday living.

Bradford West Gwillimbury and New Tecumseth ripe for growth

Bradford West Gwillimbury and New Tecumseth ripe for growth

If you’ve ever driven north on Hwy. 400 heading towards cottage country, perhaps you stopped off, the outlet mall at Cookstown. On summer weekends, anyway, the area might not boast the lightest traffic, but head off the beaten trail and into surrounding communities such as Bradford and New Tecumseth, and you’ll find a lot more than a few bargains to keep you coming back.

Maybe even permanently.

Bradford West Gwillimbury

Indeed, Bradford, which in 1991 amalgamated with the former Townships of West Gwillimbury and Tecumseth to form the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury, is beloved for its fertile lands and rich soil. Resplendent with lush farmland, including the Holland Marsh – “the carrot capital of Canada” – forests and rivers, this area is an agricultural hotbed in Ontario.

The Marsh, itself, comprises about 21,000 acres. Development in this area centres around sensitivity to such natural wonders.

With financial and social responsibility in mind, Bradford West Gwillimbury says its administration encourages public participation in the decision-making process for development, to make the area a desirable place to live, work and play.

And, it appears to be happening.

This area, believe it or not, is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Ontario of at least 5,000 residents. According to the 2016 Census, the population of Bradford West Gwillimbury grew 25.8 per cent to 35,325 from 28,077 in 2011 – good enough for 11th in the province.

New Tecumseth

Located in Simcoe County, New Tecumseth comprises the communities of Alliston, Tottenham and Beeton.

These three vibrant urban centres enjoy prosperous activity in agriculture, honey production, manufacturing, transportation and warehousing. Proximity to the 400 series highways and Hwy. 50 affords easy access to the GTA to the south and Kitchener-Waterloo to the west, among other areas, which is all conducive to business growth.

Given such prosperity, people are moving here to live and to do business. According to the town’s economic development office, 35 per cent of residents have moved here within the last five years. Housing development naturally follows, and several builders have projects underway here.

Local Focus: Bradford West Gwillimbury & New Tecumseth

by Gale Beeby

A slower pace of life, lots of countryside, quality produce and fresh air are the main attractions

HOUSING OPTIONS

Primarily an agriculture area with a rich history of grist and lumber mills, the area has seen a recent growth spurt, mainly because of the province’s restrictions for building on the greenbelt. All the towns and villages have wonderful heritage homes, and the new offerings run the gamut from condos and townhouses to detached master-planned communities and large estate homes. To see a list of new homes for sale in these two communities please click on the links below.

LEISURE PURSUITS

One of Bradford West Gwillimbury‘s most famous historical landmarks is the Village Inn Hotel, which opened in the 1900s. It was designed by E.J. Lennox, one of Toronto’s foremost architects, who also built Toronto’s Old City Hall, the West Wing of the Ontario Legislature and the King Edward Hotel.

In New Tecumseth, the Museum on the Boyne features a 1914 Agricultural Fair building, an 1851 log cabin and a 1858 English barn. The Gibson Centre in Alliston offers a variety of live performances throughout the year. The restoration of the birthplace of Sir Frederick Banting (who co-won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1928) at the 107-acre farm at what is now 5116 Sir Frederick Banting Road, has been undertaken by the town with private donations.

EASY ACCESS

The area is serviced by many double-lane highways which connect to Highway 400 to the west and Highway 404 to the east. Public transit, however, is very limited. GO Transit runs bus and train service through the area, taking commuters north to Barrie and south to Toronto.

PARKS & REC

Parks, waterways and recreational facilities abound in the region. The Scanlon Creek Conservation Area allows visitors to explore forests, marshlands and glacial erratics via its 10-kilometre trail system that winds its way through the 750-acre property. The region also boasts several golf courses, cycling trails, skiing, fishing and snowmobiling.

In Bradford West Gwillimbury, there are 20 parks totalling 100 acres to enjoy with picnic areas, pathways, play areas, basketball courts, baseball diamonds, soccer pitches, tennis courts and ice skating facilities.

New Tecumseth is closing the gap in the Trans Canada Trail between the Town of Innisfil and the Town of Caledon. The Tottenham Conservation Area boasts 41 acres of prime parkland, a magnificent pond with a large sandy beach, picnic areas and camping areas. While there you can fish, walk the nature trails, canoe or kayak, or play beach volleyball.

RETAIL THERAPY

Oh the joy of a stroll through a historic Ontario town, where the stores offer unique crafts, interesting gourmet delights and amazing boutiques, restaurants and cafés, where quality rules over quantity. The farmers’ markets in the Holland Marsh are the ultimate in fresh and flavourful. However, if it is a big mall, outlet shopping or big box stores you’re after, you’ll have to go to Newmarket or Barrie … or Toronto.

BY THE NUMBERS

Bradford West Gwillimbury population: 35,325

New Tecumseth population: 34,250

Bradford West Gwillimbury walk score: 37

New Tecumseth walk score: 37
