Local King agents know the area
King Township is one of the most picturesque rural areas in Ontario with the lush hills and valleys of the Oak Ridges Moraine as its backdrop. The lovely countryside is part of York region and includes some of the most desirable neighbourhoods and hamlets in York including King City, Schomberg, Nobleton, Pottageville, and Rural King.
King Township is located due north on Highway 400, offering plenty of welcoming areas to call home. Despite being the largest land mass in York region, it actually has the lowest population. As a result, it attracts families seeking life close to the city, with a far more laid-back lifestyle. Perfectly set amid some of the province’s most impressive farmland, the township provides country living with all the amenities of an urban setting.
A major attraction in the area is Holland Marsh, a lush spread of land featuring kilometer upon kilometer of rich black soil. Known as Ontario’s Vegetable Basket, people from Toronto and surrounding areas head up the 400 to delight in some of the most prized fruits and vegetables in peak season.
King Real Estate Market & History
King Township was named after John King by Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe. The British acquired the lands in the Toronto Purchase, from the Mississaugas in 1787. Lands included the townships of Etobicoke, King, Vaughan, and York. The transaction for the King Township area was completed on August 1,1805 and covered 250,808 acres. Lands in the area were first developed by Loyalist Timothy Rogers, who arrived with families from Vermont anxious to take up the 40, 200-acre farms Rogers was granted. The families began arriving in 1802. Originally called Armitage, it is now part of nearby Newmarket. To the west the settlement expanded to include Kettleby and Lloydtown near Schomberg, attracting Loyalists from New York and Pennsylvania.
King Real Estate
As the largest neighbourhood, King City is located between the 404 and Bathurst. It offers an interesting real estate inventory including a collection of heritage homes located in the King Road and Keele Street areas. The subdivisions built in the 1960s sit on desirable large lots which almost overpower the smaller ranch style bungalows popular during that era. Because of this it has become common for these homes to be torn down to make way for large, designer customized builds.
New subdivisions continue to inch their way into King City consisting of townhouses and detached homes. However, there are also some boutique condo complexes located at Burns Boulevard and King Road. Making a splash in King City real estate is the arrival of custom homes in Kingcross. These homes are exclusive estates set against the rolling landscape of the town. Homes are perfectly situated and designed to offer an eclectic set of architectural designs instead of the more traditional executive homes found in the suburbs. This is a King City neighbourhood where money is no object and builders can meet owners’ specific needs, however the town still offers its original, smaller homes for sale.
If you are interested in heritage homes, many people are attracted to Old Schomberg Village near the neighbourhood’s Main Street. Dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s these homes offer charm and original character you don’t find in new builds. If your budget is at the higher end, the impressive homes in Pottageville provide stunning estate homes situated on sprawling lots with mature shady trees and forests as their backdrop. You’ll find a good mix when it comes to age, ranging from homes in the late 1900s to brand new custom designed executive houses.
