    Georgina Homes for Sale

    Royal Lepage YCR

    Keswick is a community located in south central Canadian province of Ontario. Situated north of Toronto on Cook's Bay (part of Lake Simcoe), Keswick is part of the Town of Georgina. In the Canada 2011 Census, the municipal population of Keswick was 25,527.

    Keswick is situated on the east shores of Lake Simcoe, along Cook’s Bay. It is bordered in the south by Ravenshoe Road, the east by Woodbine Avenue, the North by Old Homestead Road, and the West by Lake Simcoe. A small portion in the southwest corner of Keswick lies within the Holland Marsh, some of Canada’s most fertile agricultural land, this piece of Keswick is bordered by the Holland River, Bradford, and East Gwillimbury.

    Real Estate in Keswick

    Keswick is well known for its beautiful beaches on Lake Simcoe, as well as many luxurious lakefront homes and cottages. A large portion of the housing stock between Lake Drive South and Lake Drive North is composed of traditional, 3-season cottages, which have been converted for year-round use, and includes private deeded beach access. Many of the homes in this area of Keswick are now being renovated or rebuilt, since the increasing demand in Keswick has pushed land values up substantially. Riverfront properties developed in a similar pattern.

    Streets with lake front properties in Keswick are Lake Drive South, Shangri La Lane, Cameron Crescent, Glenwoods Avenue, Bayview Avenue, Pleasant Boulevard, Willow Drive, Wynhurst Road, South Channel Drive, North Channel Drive, Windy Shore Drive, Cooks Bay Drive, Metropolian Crescent, Shoreline Place, Boyers Road, Walkers Lane, and Lake Drive North.

    Other waterfront properties in Keswick can be found on Bruce Street, Canal Road, Robert Street, Shirlea Boulevard, Waterbend Drive, Marina Drive, Mac Ave, Riveredge Drive, and Riverglen Drive.

    Other areas in Keswick have been developed into more traditional suburban-style environments, with many subdivisions popping up in the 1980’s, 1990’s, early 2000’s, and present day. The arrival of the Provincial Highway 404 to Ravenshoe Road and Woodbine Avenue in the south of Keswick has added a substantial increase in demand for new homes in Keswick South. The most prominent development in this area is Simcoe Landing, which is currently doubling in size, and including a number of detached and semi-detached homes, as well as townhomes.

    Some urbanization has occurred in Keswick, with a small number of condominiums reaching the market along the Queensway South, the Queensway North, and Riverglen Drive in Keswick.

Keswick North in Georgina has an average            list price of         $528,989. The average sale price for Keswick North is $538,938 with an average sale to list price ratio of 102 percent.

    History

    Keswick was originally known as Medina.[1] It was a part of the Township of North Gwillimbury before becoming part of the Township of Georgina. The area was formerly considered part of "cottage country" for those who lived in Toronto up until the late 1980s, when major development further opened up access to Keswick, expanding its population.

    Geography

    Included in Keswick is the Keswick Marsh, part of the Holland Marsh.[2] Having been built mainly as a cottage community, Keswick is fairly long north to south as it hugs the shore of Lake Simcoe.

    Demographics

    Keswick's population was 25,527 in 2011.[3] Specific demographics for Keswick are not available, since it is counted as part of Georgina.[4]

    Economy

    The town boasts a number of shopping areas and attractions along the lakeshore and nearby agricultural areas. The majority of residents commute south to Newmarket or Toronto to work as there are no major employers in Keswick. The majority of businesses in Keswick are retail in nature, the largest is Wal-Mart which opened in 2010.

    Arts and culture

    The Stephen Leacock Theatre, opened in 1985, presents performances ranging from musicals and plays to orchestras and band performances.

    • Elm Hurst Beach Association (who, amongst other things, spearheaded a drive to clean up part of Lake Simcoe)
    • Kinsmen Club of Keswick - a division of Kin Canada which was established in 1976.

    Music in the Streets is a music festival, hosted by Connors Music, a local music store, celebrating talent from around Georgina.

    Attractions

    The Georgina Military Museum is located at the north end of Keswick. Whipper Watson Park, covering almost nine acres, was upgraded in 2010. The town has become a popular destination in Ontario for swimming, boating, ice fishing, and snowmobiling.
