The Town of King is one of the largest in York Region. It is predominately rural in nature much of which lies on the Oak Ridges Moraine. Rolling hills, farms and fields still are the most visible features as well as the Holland Marsh. But the face of real estate is changing in the five main neighbourhoods. King City at King Road and Keele Street has seen a great deal of development that has brought new luxury subdivisions such as King Oaks and upscale properties in King's Ridge to compliment the older subdivisions of King Heights, Springhill Gardens and the attractive Kingscross Estates. The Residences of Spring Hill condominiums on King Road and the semi-detached homes and townhouses have added to the attractiveness of King City real estate.
Nobleton at the junction of Highway 27 and King Road is, also, growing with upscale new homes in all corners of the neighbourhood. Now new townhouse and semi-detached offerings in King Country Estates compliment the wide variety of detached homes being offered for sale in Nobleton Meadows and Greyburn Heights.
Pottageville on the Lloydtown-Aurora Road is without sanitary sewers and town water, and development here is restricted to detached homes on larger lots. It is still an extremely attractive neighbourhood because of its' cozy charm, and borders on Highway 400 with easy access to other parts of the GTA.
Schomberg on Highway 9 is the smallest neighbourhood in the town, but is expanding its rural charm with new homes being built at an increasing pace. Nor low-rise condominiums, semi-detached homes and townhouses have expanded the base for home buyers coming from as far away as Toronto.
Rural King is the largest neighbourhood with detached homes, farms and vacant land, with "acreage" a term often heard. Estate homes in gated King Valley Estates on Dufferin Street are prized, as are the homes in the smaller villages like Ansnorveldt, Kettleby, Snowball, Glenville and Laskey.
King has always had the notion of exclusivity about it, and this description still applies as real estate prices continue to escalate and lower-priced properties come to the market. Home growth will still probably be strongest in King City and Nobleton, but Schomberg and Pottageville will be a close second.
The five neighbourhoods are described in the following videos, which should give a good feel for those looking to move to or within the various communities.
