Much of King’s land mass is occupied by multi-acre plots of private farmland with large chunks of open space and forested areas in between. Along with neighbor Bradford West Gwillimbury, King is home to the fertile wetland known as the Holland Marsh, the “vegetable basket” of Ontario. Cattle and horse farms are plentiful as well.
As for those in King who don’t grow radishes and squeeze cows' teats for a living? The communities of Nobleton, Schomberg, and King City house the majority of all the King’s ladies and all the King’s men.
King City includes the Seneca College campus and is one of the few areas serviced by both the York and GO buses/trains. A mixture of modern and historic single-family detached homes dominates the housing market in King City, although a smattering of duplexes, townhomes, and condos can be found as well.
Nobleton, meanwhile, is nestled between forests and hills and straddles the line between suburbia and ultra-rural farm country. Several horse farms are situated along the eastern border, while a handful of densely populated subdivisions can be found in the northern and southwestern sections. A glut of new homes, condos, and townhouses has sprouted up in Nobleton in recent years, making it a great place to start your house hunt if you're looking for a post-New Millennium residence.
The third main residential hub, Schomberg, is a rural/suburban community tucked away between the Oak Ridges Moraine and the Holland River. Like Nobleton, it includes a mixture of well-preserved historic homes along with a growing number of brand-new townhomes, condos, and freestanding houses.
