Are you in the market for a new home in a vibrant, wide-open rural area chock-full of small town charm and gorgeous vistas in every direction? Welcome to New Tecumseth.

Situated 105 km north of Toronto in the scenic Nottawasaga River Valley amongst farmland, rolling hills, and winding rivers, New Tecumseth is the epitome of good old-fashioned country living. One of Ontario’s least densely populated areas (to the tune of a miniscule 110 people per square kilometer), New Tecumseth is the perfect place to call home if you covet peace, quiet, and a whole lot of wiggle room. Even in the city’s 3 urbanized areas – Alliston, Tottenham, and Beeton – overcrowding and congestion is virtually unheard of and open spaces stretch as far as the eye can see.

Not just a farming community, New Tecumseth boasts a strong and independent economy based largely around Honda of Canada, which employs nearly 4,000. Other large employers in New Tecumseth include Baxter Canada, F&P Manufacturing, and Oetiker Limited. Still, with Barrie situated just 40 kilometers to the north (and, to a lesser extent, Toronto about an hour’s drive south), many residents opt to work outside city limits.

Much of the real estate in New Tecumseth consists of farmhouses situated on multi-acre plots of land or decades-old dwellings in suburban subdivisions. However, the city has seen its fair share of new homes sprout up in recent years, especially in Alliston, which grew by nearly 25 percent between 2006 and 2011 (and continues to expand). If your heart is set on a brand-new home in New Tecumseth, you’ll find no shortage of options.

New Tecumseth offers its seniors and special-needs residents specialized taxi service to medical appointments and grocery stores (for a nominal fee). A taxi company operates in town as well. Beyond that, public transit is nonexistent (for now, anyway).

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.

Had a long day at the plant or in the fields and need to take a load off? Stock up on some Moosehead or Molson and set up camp at the Nicolston Dam, where you can also swim, kayak, or boat down the river. Or head over to the Falconry Centre and observe more than 200 birds of prey take flight in an enclosed medieval courtyard.

Other fun and informative destinations for visitors of all ages include the Museum on the Boyne (featuring structures dating back as far as the 1850s) and the Borden Public and Military Museum (one of the largest of its kind in Canada). Another must-experience in New Tecumseth is the South Simcoe Railway, which takes passengers on a guided tour of Tottenahm and Beeton in a restored 1920s coach. New Tecumseth is also home to a massive indoor playground and numerous parks, trails, fields, and ice pads, helping make it an ideal hometown for active-minded residents of all ages.
