Historic Battleground Reinvigorated With Modern Luxury
During the War of 1812, the village of St. Davids became capital of Upper Canada and changed hands six times. After their ultimate defeat by the British, the Americans burned the village to the ground on their way out. Out of those ashes rose a community of large lots, large houses and a strong sense of itself. Minutes from the American border, Queenston Heights park and brand name shopping at the Outlet Collection, locals love the heritage, tranquility and convenience of St. Davids living. While walking to dinner at picturesque Ravine Vineyards, you’ll love it too!
MORE INFO ON ST. DAVIDS
The St. Davids community is a part of the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, resting at the foot of Queenston Heights, a stone’s throw from Highway 405 and centred on York Road. The area itself comprises approximately two square kilometres. A small community, but great things come in this small package. St. Davids has historic charm from its days as a War of 1812 battleground and subsequent rebuilding throughout the 19th century. Modern businesses, such as the Old Firehall restaurant, have taken advantage of this historic charm to provide St. Davids with a unique charm all its own.
St. Davids also features its own burgeoning wine industry, including premium brands like Ravine, Five Rows and Chateau des Charmes. These wineries feature award-winning wines and unique dining or tasting experiences. While St. Davids is rich in history and culture, it is unique within Niagara for having so many modern homes. Since the turn of the 21st century, many vacant lots have been developed into large, modern and impressive homes.
And if you’re a golfer like Cam, you’ll enjoy being able to ride your bike or walk to the 9-hole St. Davids Golf Club.
The catalyst for new builds in St. Davids is not only its wine, culture and history, but also its one-of-a-kind location.
