Location, location, location. It’s something that differentiates 37 Church Street, which is seated in Paris, Ontario, voted "the Prettiest Little Town in Canada" by Harrowsmith Magazine. Represented by Tina Goldrick and Ray Jeffers, this charming, rustically stylish home is set mere minutes from downtown and a short distance from the Grand River waterfront and Lion’s Park, luring buyers looking to take advantage of the delightful town’s offerings.


The town of Paris was established in 1850, 17 years before Canada became a country. Referred to as "the cobblestone capital of Canada" for its historic cobblestone buildings, the town is located where the Nith River empties into the Grand River, providing plenty of opportunities for water sports and activities.


To get a local peek into the prettiest little town in Canada, The Agency asked Paris experts Tina and Ray to share their favorite things to do in the area.
