RURAL LIVING IN GRIMSBY

The boutique town of Grimsby is a charming and idyllic community nestled between Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment.  Grimsby is known as the “Gateway to Niagara”, and HWY 8 runs directly through the heart of town. 

Along HWY 8, on either side of town, you will find the beginnings of Niagara Wine Country.   The most notable winery at the beginning of the  “Wine Route”, is Peninsula Ridge, which is located just east of town.  

Grimsby is a town with many historic stories and stunning views. As such, it is no surprise that Grimsby has seen quite a bit of development over the past number of years, especially to the north (lakeside), east and west sides. However, luxurious country living can be found to the south of Grimsby – known as the Grimsby Mountain.

 The Grimsby Mountain offers impeccable views of (and from) the Niagara Escarpment most notably along Ridge Road, which winds its way along the top of the Niagara Escarpment and can offer stunning views of Lake Ontario, the Golden Horseshoe and the Toronto skyline. 

Scenic views are accompanied by vineyards, lush agricultural lands and patches of hardwood forest. You can also enjoy miles of hiking along the Bruce Trail (which runs from Queenston in Niagara-on-the-Lake all the way to Tobermory). All making for an ideal country living environment. 

This is an exclusive area to buy a country home in, with a population of just over 27,000, and its proximity to Hamilton, means property prices are on the higher side and country homes don’t come up for sale here very often.
