Considering the abundance of natural beauty, it’s no surprise that Canadian musician and environmental activist Sarah Harmer considers Elginburg her adopted home. The gem of this rural neighbourhood is the Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area. Open year-round, Little Cat Creek is a haven for bird watching, hiking, canoeing and snowshoeing. The Outdoor Centre offers numerous workshops throughout the year for participants of all ages, encouraging even the most devoted city dwellers to turn off their cell phones and connect with nature.
Many a rehabilitated city dweller has been permanently converted to rural living by Glenburnie’s charms. This largely rural area is perfect for those seeking a country lifestyle. The community has plenty of open green space and is home to several pristine bodies of water. The bustling Glenburnie Grocery serves as the community hub, and the selection of organic local products is immensely popular, attracting patrons from across the city. Although it offers serenity and seclusion to its residents, Glenburnie is a mere 20 minutes away from downtown Kingston.
Located in Kingston’s north end, Markers Acres is a popular neighbourhood for people of all ages. Although most homes are single-detached, the neighbourhood’s low-rise apartment buildings are ideal for young professionals or empty nesters looking to downsize. Situated along the picturesque Cataraqui River, the neighbourhood has several well-maintained parks as well as its own outdoor ice rink.
Are you thinking about what it would feel like to have a new home? Perhaps you’re daydreaming about a cozy cottage by the lake, or a chic city apartment with amazing views. Or maybe you’re picturing a spacious suburban home with a big yard for your kids and pets to run around in.
Whatever your ideal home looks like, even if you’re not ready to make a move yet, it’s natural to want something better than what you have now.
