Local Stouffville agents know the area
When it comes to looking for a town in the GTA that has managed to avoid that feeling of urban sprawl, Stouffville (a.k.a. Whitchurch-Stouffville) is the town that comes to mind. Surrounded by farms and conservation land, you’ll find a rural setting with the amenities you desire, without fear of being overtaken by too many subdivisions. The reason? The Oak Ridges Moraine Conservation Act, Greenbelt Protection Act and Places to Grow Act provide designated “urban settlement” areas slotted for new subdivisions. This helps protect the natural features of the town while still allowing for reasonable development. As a result, home buyers nervous about the suburban lifestyle are flocking to the area. With Stouffville’s beautiful countryside, vibrant historic downtown and idyllic sense of community, residents avoid feeling like they live in the “burbs.”
Located straight up the 404, it is an easy commute, making it a destination for commercial development as well. Teva Canada, Strategic Information Technologies, Cook Canada, K-Line Group, and the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are just a few of the town’s major employers. The town continues to grow with a population of about 35,000, keeping its small town feel intact, while still welcoming new businesses and residents with open arms.
Stouffville Real Estate Market & History
Stouffville is named after its first settler, Abraham Stouffer who arrived in 1805. He established a successful saw and grist mill on the banks of Duffin’s Creek. Soon other industries and farmers were attracted to the area and by 1832 Stouffville had its own post office. When the Toronto and Nipissing railway was built in 1871, it became more prosperous and in 1876 it incorporated as a village. The area continued to grow and by the early 2000s was deemed one of Ontario’s fastest growing communities.
Stouffville Real Estate
Home buyers looking to avoid the cookie cutter houses of suburban subdivisions find what they are looking for in Stouffville. Beautiful grand 1880s Victorian and Edwardian homes as well as some early 1900s Arts and Crafts houses are the gems in the crown of Stouffville real estate. Many of the older, rustic homes are found in downtown Stouffville close to the excitement of historic Main Street. However, if this is not the style of home you desire, there is no shortage of choices including brick bungalows, ranches, split-level homes, neo-colonial detached houses, and a fair share of modern new subdivision homes. Both new and older subdivisions include a selection of low-rise condos, townhouses and detached homes.
There is something very endearing about a town like Stouffville. It has managed to maintain its rural, historic feel while still providing all the modern amenities you need. It begins with a quaint Main Street in downtown Stouffville with heritage buildings that appear frozen in time. You will discover an exceptional selection of restaurants, pubs, bakeries, cafés, and boutiques here, as well as medical and professional services. An impressive range of dining experiences await such as the gastropub fare at The Cornerhouse on Main, or the mouth-watering flavours of Portugal at Fishbone. Shopping is not limited to the main street strip, but instead continues to grow with new plazas, major retailers and chain restaurants also moving into town.
While families make up much of the population, this town is quickly becoming a haven for 20 and 30 somethings looking for a more affordable lifestyle in a charming town. These first-time buyers are attracted to both the easy commute via the 404 or Go Train, as well as the vast selection of home styles and lifestyle choices. They also like the idea of living and working outside the city, as local employment opportunities become available.
Stouffville is committed to promoting arts and culture, with the ultra-modern Lebovic Centre for Arts & Entertainment providing a multi-purpose event center. Also known as Nineteen on the Park, the center offers community-based programs a place to thrive from musical theatre to dances and unique film screenings to art shows. Also contributing to supporting the arts, the Latcham Art Centre offers ongoing programs, exhibitions, art classes, workshops, and lectures.
