Richard's Notes

Driving Through The Wrought Iron Gates Along The Long Corridor Of Majestic Trees Promised Something Special About Glenwood House. Walking Past The Gated Private Gardens Leading To The Lush Green Cliffside With Water Lapping The Shoreline Transform The Soul With Immediate Serenity. Walking The Halls, The Rooms, The Gardens W/Major Eliot Jones Log Cabin C1803(Now A Totally Renovated Guest Loft Suite), I Could Hear Whispers Of Occupants Past When Important Decisions Extras: Were Made, Important Guests Were Entertained, Children Raised Probably Run Dynasties Of Their Own In Our Brave New World. The Grand Hall, Portico.. Are Back Drops Where Classics Are Written -Somewhere Between Madame X Or Wuthering Heights.


Notes on the Region

Notes on The Region Tap into what the cognoscenti have known for years, a little bit of insider information if you will - Port Hope has turned into a bedroom community of Toronto. 50 minutes of highway driving east of Toronto on HWY 401, Port Hope is a very unique town in Ontario that has a proactive Heritage Conservatory, yet cultural and economical development friendly.  Steeped in history, it was the playground of the Rich and Famous since the early 1800's.  That would explain all the majestic estates in the surrounding countryside. Northumberland County, wherein lies Port Hope, benefits from the growing trend of "city folk" moving out from the hustle and bustle in the "big smoke" to somewhere quieter and safer.  Most days there is a multitude of Toronto's diasporas commuting on the Via - or some just drive to the Whitby Go Station and park there for the day. Northumberland County is only part of this phenomenon of "managed growth", although Port Hope, being the closest, has positioned itself to be a gateway of sort.  Port Hope, indeed, is unique with it's water frontage, Yacht, Golf and Country Clubs, developed cultural events and mildly eccentric denizens.  We have the Big Apple in Colborne that opens year round attracting millions.  And Brighton turning into a well received retirement community - great success in the development of Brighton-by-the-Bay by a REIT.  Then Prince Edward County, with picturesque Picton,  is turning into the other Wine Producing region.  After selling The Hillcrest in Port Hope to an area Spa, I see a few more popping up that provide a variety of alternatives and choices.  Another client from the U.K., now a good friend, is setting up another one in Brighton.  I am sure this will be quite special - as influenced by her background as a hotelier in Africa and her son as an impresario in the entertainment/music industry in the U.K. and New York.  Then there is Trenton and Belleville, led by one of the most dynamic Economic Development Boards in the person of Chris King; and Kingston, which is experiencing phenomenal growth. You can pick up a copy of the Current Visitor's Guide at the Tourist Office as well!
