There’s something appealing about the solitude of a peaceful spring evening on a rural Niagara property.

Sure, living in the “country” has its challenges, but overall, the joy some families find in making their mark on a generous rural property is worth more than the challenges it takes to live there.

The team of experts at McGarr Realty has helped many a family find the perfect rural Niagara property; after all, the region has 12 municipalities in which to find homes with generous yards and space for growth. Places like Pelham offer it's residents deep lots and wide open farms.

We have also helped many a client seeking a hobby farm; an established farm for cash crops; places to grow tender fruit, or even raise farm animals such as chickens, horses and dairy cows.

Maybe you don’t need hundreds of acres for farming; perhaps all you crave is a little peace and quiet, and neighbours further away than arm’s length. And maybe a vegetable or a flower garden.

A rural Niagara property can provide that, while also fulfilling the needs for daily living: Regional roads leading outwards from the heart of our municipalities and townships; generous school bus routes; regional services like plowing snow in the winter and regular garbage collection; a fantastic health system with lots of options for emergency care; available utilities and options for Internet service; reliable cellphone service and so much more.

You get the best of both worlds: Your sanctuary, with the services of a cosmopolitan municipality of your choice, just a stone’s throw away.

And remember, “rural” doesn’t have to mean “middle of nowhere.” You might have neighbours just over the hill, or be surrounded by like-minded families on smaller properties who just want the peace and quiet of a spring evening, without the light pollution and noise we get in the city (mind you, in Niagara, there’s really not too much of that, either, unless you live very close to a major road or highway).

At McGarr Realty, we don’t know if everyone feels the same way we do about peace and quiet, but we do know that if you come in with your wish list, and it says you want a rural property, peace and quiet are two of the bonuses you’ll receive.
