You heard it here first: Consecon is Prince Edward County’s next IT spot. Why? It’s the closest part of the County to Toronto, and it still feels like a fishing village. While that means it’s still early days in its transition into a cool spot, it also means AFFORDABILITY.
Nestled in between Lake Consecon, Weller’s Bay and the Loyalist Parkway (highway 33), part of Consecon sits in the Hillier Ward and part in the Ameliasburgh ward. While it may be going through an exciting time of growth today, Consecon is far from a new community. In fact, the village of Consecon was established in the early 1800’s (though Champlain slept here back in the 1600’s). With its early manufacturing and industrial roots, Consecon played an important role in rum running during prohibition days.
One of the big signs that Consecon is on its way? The Mill PEC, the pride and joy of Consecon for over a century was recently purchased by a Toronto investor who has owned a home in the County since long before it was cool. The newly opened The Mill PEC restaurant is quickly becoming a dining hotspot, with plans to include unique accommodations, compelling pop-up retail and event space into the Mill.
Consecon offers potential home buyers and investors tons of opportunities to get in early. There’s a convenience store, LCBO, post office and a few dining establishments too including Stratos Pizzeria.
