Historic Guelph

Explore Historic Guelph


We've recently witnessed several decades of growth that saw many young families enticed to move to the expanding perimeter of the city. Amidst widespread urbanization, the downtown residential streets of Guelph have never lost their appeal. The thirst for the irreplaceable characteristics of centuries old streets and properties continues. In fact, it could easily be suggested that the demand for core Guelph properties has never been higher.

The downtown living experience in Guelph is all about convenience and walkability. Unlike other Ontario cities and towns that saw big-box commercialization destroy their downtown economic growth, downtown Guelph has not only survived that development, but thrived under it. The residents of the surrounding historic neighbourhoods remain the major benefactors. The farmers market, organic grocery, retail, family services and the best collection of restaurants and pubs in town, are all within reach of your front door.

The housing sales of Historic Guelph are as varied as you will find anywhere in the city. From mid-19th century original structures to high-rise condominiums that are loaded with the modern amenities of 21st century living, the neighbourhood has something to offer everyone. Home prices range from entry-level to as exclusive as you will find in Guelph. A little something for everyone provides an eclectic mix of residents, all choosing to enjoy the benefits of traversing walkable streets to their everyday amenities.

While the historic character of the neighbourhood is the principal draw for many choosing to live in the downtown core, several new developments are providing access to an entirely new array of housing options. Smart new construction projects like OneEighty, The Metalworks, River House and River Mill condominiums have expanded on the livability of the neighbourhood through the careful re-development of forgotten lands in core locations. Coupled with many large-scale renovation and addition projects, the development dollars are currently flowing freely into the Historic Guelph neighbourhood.

A purchase into the Historic Guelph neighbourhood is a wise investment both in economic terms and lifestyle.
