Take a Sunday drive out to the country and you’ll be sure to see picturesque fields, glistening ponds, and stunning homes with exceptional views. If you’ve ever dreamed of calling a place like that home, then let the McGarr Realty team make it possible!

In St. Catharines and the Niagara Region, we are fortunate to have many gorgeous rural locations with country estate homes. At McGarr Realty, we’ve helped many buyers from the GTA find their escape from city life with their own retreat in the countryside. Our REALTORS® can find you the perfect balance of elegance and acreage that you’re looking for in a country estate.

When you picture your ideal property in the country, what do you see there? Are you surrounded by mature trees that follow along a long, winding driveway? Or perhaps you envision a barn nestled along a rolling hill? Is there a large acreage for you to ride your ATV in the back fields? Or a weeping willow tree with a swing that reminds you of when you were a kid?

We can’t help but get a little nostalgic when it comes to country estate homes because they remind us of simpler days. Days when we were kids and all we wanted to do was be outside playing until it got dark. These homes are a wonderful place to bring back the magic of these younger days while offering the sophistication we enjoy as adults.

Estate houses in St. Catharines and the Niagara area offer exceptional style paired with the spaciousness that comes with country life. You’ll find many of these homes boast spacious front entrances, both inside and out! The homes often have large and inviting front porches complete with lots of space for outdoor seating. The grand impression of country estates is carried through to the oversized and intricately detailed doors that reflect an appreciation for quality and craftsmanship.

Inside these homes, you’re met with awe-inspiring entrances, with their spacious floor plans and high ceilings. Large timber beams frame the cathedral ceilings while a lofty stone fireplace welcomes you in. Imagine coming home to the quietness we so often miss in the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. A place where you can unwind, away from it all.

There’s an ease to these homes that embrace the beauty of their natural surroundings. You can find great rooms with large windows that overlook the rural landscape outside, with views that are breathtaking in any season. Here, detached three-car garages are a luxury not often found in other neighbourhoods.
