Rural Uxbridge Real EstateIf one stepped back to the 18th Century when Uxbridge became an official township and then zipped into the future of what Uxbridge is today, the one thing that would stand out the most is…this municipality and its beautiful landscape has not changed very much. There are a few more shops, schools, transit buses and more farms & businesses in place, but when the Quakers (originally from Pennsylvania, US) settled this area back in 1806, much of the nature, farm lands and untouched forests remained preserved. The Oak Ridges Moraine (in Durham Region) northern slope and valley is where delightful Uxbridge is located, yet still only being 64 km’s northeast of the city of Toronto, makes Uxbridge the ‘spot on’ place to live.Real estate for sale in Uxbridge ranges from large and mid-sized stately & country-styled homes to commercial property to property lots. Home buyers, investment developers and commercial investors will be able to clearly see the potential in the real estate for sale within the scope of Uxbridge. Many of the houses for sale in this particular area are gorgeously spacious, have very healthy and sizeable exterior lots and are full of interesting charm (the older homes possess little ‘perks of the past’ with highlights from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s). The surrounding communities of Altona, Sandford, Goodwood, Sandy Hook, Zephyr, Glen Major, Leaskdale, Coppin’s Corners, Glasgow and Siloam just add to the historical flavours of Uxbridge with their own stories of the past to tell. Abundant in amenities, facilities and community services for all ages and cultures, Uxbridge has a variety of schools (Durham College, Goodwood Public School, Joseph Gould Public School, Scott Central Public School, Quaker Village Public School, Uxbridge Public School, Uxbridge Secondary School, St. Joseph’s Catholic School and Uxbridge Montessori School) and health services through the Uxbridge Cottage Hospital & Markham Stouffville Hospital.There are many ways to access Uxbridge via Hwy’s and Regional roads: Zephyr Road (#13), York/Durham Line (#30), Toronto Street South (Hwy #47), Stouffville Road (Hwy #47), Scott Conc. 3 (#39), Sandford Road (#11), Main Street (#1), Lake Ridge Road (#23), Goodwood Road (#21), Durham Road 39, Durham Hwy #47, Brock Street (#8) and Brock Street East (#47). Public transit also makes traversing in and out of Uxbridge easy, with Durham Regional Transit buses and GO Transit. As Uxbridge is a unique blend of an arts community, recreational hub and heritage & culturally significant township, the draw for opening a new business or relocating an existing business is highly attractive here. Within close proximity of Toronto, but yet far enough away to be considered out in the country, Uxbridge really does have a lot to offer for strategic business visions. A safe and clean community with little communities within, Uxbridge is an open book of opportunity for everyone. The film industry has taken advantage (on many occasions) to shoot in Uxbridge for its untouched and innocent landscapes and township feel (1980’s TV show ‘The Littlest Hobo’, CBC’s series Road to Avonlea, TV series Schitt’s Creek, just to name a few).Uxbridge is the Trail capital of Canada, which translates into amazing trails that intersect with other community’s trails, giving ‘fitness-fun’ a whole new meaning. The Oak Ridges Trail and the Trans-Canada Trail both link to the trails that run through and around Uxbridge (Maple Bridge Trail, Butternut Trail, Historic Trail, Quaker Trail, Ewen Trail, South Balsam Trail and Wooden Sticks Trail). These scenic trails run through & encompass forests & dense woodlands, wetlands, historic villages, ponds, residential areas, meadows, streams and the town streets of Uxbridge. Different trails and terrains offer a wealth of opportunity for joggers, walkers, cyclists, all level hikers, people with accessibility requirements, cross-country skiers and snowshoeing enthusiasts (snowmobilers will appreciate the off-the-beaten-path trails just for them). Sites of interest to both residents and visitors begin with stepping back towards the past (the 18th Century) and visiting the Uxbridge Historical Centre, the Uxbridge-Scott Museum, the Thomas Foster Memorial, Dr. Bascom – Dr. Mellow House, the Fifth Line Church, the Janet Lee Weldon House, Uxbridge Public Library, Leaskdale Manse Museum, the Commercial Hotel, the Uxbridge Music Hall, the Old Municipal Hall, the Orange Lodge Hall, the Pine Grove United Church, the Quaker Meeting House, the York – Durham Heritage Railway and Elgin Park. Elgin Park not only has a historical significance, it is host to many festivals (Uxbridge Fall Fair), art exhibitions & shows and events (Heritage Christmas Craft Show & Santa Claus Parade)) throughout the year. The Uxbridge Farmer’s Market provides the desirable outlet for farm-fresh meats, produce, authentically made handcrafts, baking, artwork and so much more.For some recreational fun indoors, the Uxbridge Arena & Recreation Centre is the place to be for some swimming, ice rink skating, squash court, rental hall, parent & tot play area, basketball, floor hockey, yoga & meditation area, soccer, gym equipment and much more! After all of that energy-burning fun, residents can get a snack, meal and drinks around the corner at the Tin Cup Café, Thai Villa, Frankie’s Ristorante, Tin Mill, King Henry’s or at the Hobby Horse Arms.
