Throughout New Tecumseth, you’ll find numerous small farming communities where cattle and chickens (unofficially, of course) outnumber men and women about a hundred to one. Rich Hill, Greenbriar, Penville, and Thompsonville are just a few such communities. The MLS listings for New Tecumseth, unsurprisingly, don’t often include too many homes for sale in these areas.
The majority of homes in New Tecumseth are situated in the urbanized communities of Tottenham, Beeton, and Alliston. The largest of the three, Alliston includes the Honda plant, a multipurpose community centre featuring two NHL-sized rinks, and the renowned Nottawasage Resort, which offers 45 holes of golf. Real estate in Alliston ranges from historic to modern and is typically available in a wide range of sizes and styles. Many in Ontario mostly know Alliston as the site of the annual Potato Festival.
Beeton is located in the geographic center of New Tecumseth and is one of the city’s most storied areas. Downtown Beeton is dotted with historic buildings and exudes a turn-of-the-century vibe, helping give the city its small town charm. Homes for sale in Beeton tend to be older than those in Alliston, although new residences do pop up occasionally as well.
Tottenham is home of F&P Manufacturing, the Simcoe Railway, and a 41-acre conservation area. Residents enjoy a state-of-the-art community centre that includes a track, aerobics studio, and fitness centre. Similar to Beeton, Tottenham consists largely of well-established, single-family dwellings, but new residences sprout up sporadically as well.
