Population & Housing

Housing

In Schomberg, there is a wide range of dwelling styles - including homes from when the land was first settled in the 1860's. The sideroads and concessions consist mostly of large properties and farmland with either country homes or newly built houses that have been constructed and privately built by the landowners. Many of the residents in the community are descendents of the original families. Schomberg offers seniors affordable housing units at Kitchen Breedon Manor, and the future Signature Developments will also address housing needs of seniors.

The subdivision "Forest Brook Hills", (located just off of Main Street and Moore Park) along Roselena Dr., consists of homes approximately 10 years old and edging upon Conservation lands and walking trails.  "Mason Homes" is a 5 year old subdivision located behind the Brownsville Junction Plaza and borders the Dufferin Marsh area.  "Laurier Homes", Schomberg's most recently approved subdivision, is currently in phase 2 of its development schedule and will offer a variety of price ranges and styles of homes to choose from.
