Real Estate Options in Grey & Bruce: Vacant Land

Sometimes life is all about making a dream come true and that can include making a dream home or a business come to life. There are a lot of decisions that come with building a home, but everything starts with the land that it will be built on. The spectacular Grey Bruce region with its sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, hundreds of kilometres of waterfront, and wooded forests has many places where you can find the perfect parcel of vacant land to build that forever home or vacation cottage. There are also opportunities for business investment purposes, with land ready to be developed for commercial use.

Undeveloped Land

The lots of undeveloped land in Grey and Bruce counties vary as much as the landscape. There is extensive acreage for sale throughout the region, both landlocked and on the water. The parcels vary in size from thousands of square feet to hundreds of acres with some lots heavily treed and others divided from already cleared pastureland. Depending on the area, there is land zoned for agricultural, commercial and residential use.

Some of the communities to look at more closely for vacant land are in Owen Sound, Lion’s Head, Southampton, Saugeen Township and Port Elgin. These are areas with acreage that would be ideal for future building projects. As major commercial business centers both Owen Sound and Port Elgin have undeveloped lots that are zoned for commercial use, many of them within the downtown areas.

Lot in a New Development

The alternative to finding the right parcel of land, hiring an architect, and working with contractors and builders, is to choose a custom home in a community that is under development. Currently there are a number of luxury development communities under construction in the Grey Bruce Area such as the Shores of Bruce Peninsula, Lakewood and Greenough Harbour. All of these feature not only elegant home designs but also large lots, many of them on waterfront property.
