Durham Real Estate and Homes for Sale

As real estate agents who specialize in Durham, let us be your guides to what Durham Ontario has to offer as a neighbourhood to finding homes for sale in the area.

Durham is a cute rural community located at the crossroads of Highway 6 and Grey Road 4 in the Municipality of West Grey. In 1997, was named the "Best Bloomin' Town" in Canada by the Communities in Bloom Committee.

Durham was founded in 1842 by Archibald Hunter, a Scottish traveler and soon became one of the first ever self-sustaining communities in Canada. This was established through the flour and saw mills of an Irishman named John Edge. In 1888 those mills were purchased by Robert McGowan which is where the name came from for the ever popular Falls.

The town displays all of its business resources in the downtown core and includes the essentials for rural town living with a flare! With just a 15 minute drive to Hanover and a 40 minute drive to Owen Sound when those little extras are needed, Durham has you covered!

One of the Town's greatest features is the Durham Conservation Area which includes over 3 km of the Saugeen River running through the Town. You can also experience McGowan Falls which is one of seven Falls featured in the Waterfalls Tour of Grey County. Also featured above the falls is the town beach where swimming lessons are practiced, canoes and kayaks paddle and fishermen of all ages enjoy the fishing.

Durham has two schools, several churches, a community centre, a curling rink as well as a baseball diamond and soccer field available.

There are a variety of homes in and around Durham. They range from bungalows to two storeys homes, town homes as well as duplexes, fourplexes, plus more. There are also various investment opportunities available as well as business opportunities.

It has certainly proven to be a community that works together as evidenced by the flood in 1997 and the Tornado that tore through in 2009. Everyone worked together to put things back together and back in place. No neighbour was left stranded - community spirit was alive and well!
