People come first – and it shows!
Just an hour north of Toronto you’ll find the charming historic community of Sutton, situated in Georgina. Don’t let this community’s humble size fool you, when it comes to fostering a high quality of life and providing residents with everything they need within reach, Sutton, and the surrounding Georgina area, more than make the grade.
In its beginnings, the community of Sutton was first inhabited by Aboriginal people, who were attracted to the land for its abundance of hunting, fishing and gathering. It was in the mid-20th century that housing developments first came to Sutton, starting in the northern areas. Besides residential properties, cottage housing can also be found in the area, located along the shores of Lake Simcoe.
A clean, friendly and scenic community, Sutton is nature-rich everywhere you look. Surrounded by water, this area is ideal for those who love being outdoors and can appreciate the more leisurely pace of lifestyle. Within the community, including Jackson’s Point, the area is walk-friendly, and you’ll often find residents getting around town in the warmer months via bicycle. The local pride is visible here, where residents get to know one another quickly and keep a tight-knit sense of community in place.
This isn’t to say residents of Sutton are out of touch with urban living. The community lies within Georgina, and as such, is a stone’s throw from the urban amenities and resources of neighboring locales like Keswick, as well as being just an hour away from Toronto. Locals can commute by travelling south via the Toronto-Beaverton Road (Highway 48) and the Woodbine Avenue connection to the 404.
There are 3 elementary schools located within Sutton and Sutton District High School as the community’s public secondary school option. Keswick’s Our Lady of the Lake Catholic College School would be the nearest Catholic secondary school option.
For a private school option at the elementary level, Queensville Montessori Academy services the Georgina area as well. The town of Georgina recognizes the importance of investing in its youth and offers programs and volunteer options for local students and youth in the community.
When it comes to lifestyle and community engagement, Sutton and its neighboring communities are proud to offer residents and visitors several attractions and activities to take part in:
Settling into a community that feels more like a cottage-town than a bustling metropolis may leave you wondering if you’re missing out on the future benefits of investing in a more urban landscape, where development and growth are a constant. But once you widen the net to the surrounding Georgina, and the neighboring communities within it, you’ll find this region is as much on track for growth and development as any other.
Georgina’s community profile page highlights several attributes when it comes to investing and doing business in Georgina, including:
An study by Finder.ca on housing market trends in 2021 shows that more than half of millennials (a reported 64%) are planning to move and either buy or rent this year (20% more than the national average), with home size being one of the biggest drivers for prospective purchasers and renters in Ontario.
When it comes to getting more bang for your buck, it’s projected that many millennials will look beyond the city limits for their next home investment. Communities like Sutton, Keswick and the surrounding Georgina are expected to grow in popularity with this demographic, as the area represents an opportunity for affordable entry into the housing market, the potential for future return on investment, and communities that afford its residents all the perks of small-town living with nearby access to urban amenities and resources.
