Welcome to Northumberland County with its many vibrant communities, rolling hills, heritage homes, the famous Ganaraska River and of course the historic towns of Port Hope and Cobourg nestled on the shores of Lake Ontario.
Come, explore and enjoy! Sip a glass of wine beside the river or eat at one of our many fantastic restaurants and then maybe follow it up with a performance by Soulpepper at our famous atmospheric Capitol Theatre or take in a concert by such musicians as Tafelmusik or the Orford Quartet.
Northumberland County is a truly wonderful place to live. With so many interesting villages, forests and places to explore, the problem is there’s so much to do, but just not enough time to do it in!

Dear Clients and Friends,

COVID-19 has created exceptional challenges for our friends, families, communities and businesses. The Chestnut Park team is working together to mitigate these challenges, to the extent possible.

Over the past week, the Chestnut Park team has rallied together to assist one another, and to support our agents and clients by implementing various protocols to reduce risk to our employees, agents and communities. We believe that we have implemented the necessary protocols that will enable us to continue to provide our clients with the up-to-date market insights, service and guidance that they have grown to expect. We will make necessary adjustments to our practices and protocols as more information becomes available.

As difficult decisions are being made, and as people will invariably be affected, I am confident that our communities, our businesses and our friendships will grow stronger and thrive. I encourage everyone to stay supportive of one another, and we will continue to provide services to our clients, agents, and the community that we serve during this difficult and trying time.

My Clients Say the Nicest Things!

“We can’t thank you enough for all the help you gave us in selling our home last Fall. Right from the very beginning, from the time you assessed the value of our property, to the ultimate sale of it, your professionalism was front and centre. The feature brochures you prepared were top-notch and the on-line photos on the internet were also first rate. In fact, when we first looked at the photos on line we almost had second thoughts about selling. How could we be leaving such a beautiful place! Nevertheless, we proceeded with your plan of action and are very happy that you secured such a delightful couple to purchase our home. We have been very active in introducing them to some of our friends in the village, so we hope they are pleased with their decision to move to Millbrook and experience the wonderful warmth of our community.  We would not hesitate to recommend Chestnut Park, and you specifically, to any of our friends and acquaintances who might be contemplating either selling their home, or purchasing another property.  Please come and see us in our new abode any time you wish. We would love to see you.”

“SAGE Relocation Services has had the pleasure of working with Fionna Barrington from Chestnut Park Real Estate on several successful Downsizing, Staging and Move Management projects. We have been first-hand witnesses to the superb level of customer service that sets Fionna apart. She is unfailingly attentive and responsive to client’s needs; often anticipating what they need before they are even aware of it. Most importantly, she earns their trust daily through the honest and transparent way she handles each and every transaction. It has been our pleasure to work with Fionna as she embodies the mandate of Chestnut Park to provide Ontario with the ‘Best Agents in the Business.”


“Selling a house is not easy at the best of times but when you have just lost your wife of 52 years it compounded the emotional task. I dreaded the thought of having to downsize, deciding what to keep and what to store and what to auction off and then selling buying and moving. However Fionna made my challenge that much easier by taking the stress out of it. She organized the decluttering and packing with professionals before it went on the market.  Having a large and very unique country property required someone who had experience in both the local market and equally as important the Toronto market. Her experience in both markets and her connections paid off handsomely.  I would recommend Fionna for her organizational strength marketing and negotiation skills. She was everything a seller could ask for. ”


“We were very happy with Fionna’s objective and honest advice when hunting for our home. She was a pleasure to work with. Fionna is very dependable and her extensive knowledge of the real estate market was instrumental in finding the perfect house for our family.”


“Taking time out from patting myself on the back (for choosing you as my agent) to let you know how much I appreciate all you did over the past month. From start to finish of the emotionally and financially complex process known as ‘Selling a House’, you handled everything with expertise, coordination and best of all, understanding and humour. The fact that my home never looked better (thanks to your wise suggestions) combined with your experience and expert pricing created the best possible scenario to attract appropriate buyers – and get the best results! I couldn’t be happier –  thank you for all your effort on my behalf…”


“I have known Fionna for 18 years. She has helped me sell two houses, purchase three, and rent another. Fionna’s market knowledge and candid advice have always served me well, and I am pleased to recommend her services.”


“I would like to thank you for the work you did in helping us sell our house and in helping us find our new home. It was clear that you knew the market and that you were able to guide us through the lengthy process to our beneficial end. We appreciated your honesty and integrity as we worked through our options. As well, it was evident that you had good working relationships with the other agents from the various companies that were encountered. Thanks again, very much appreciated.”


“It was an absolute pleasure working with Fionna Barrington when we bought our house last spring. Her real estate expertise, strong work ethic, and extensive knowledge of the market made buying our first home an experience we will never forget. At a time when there wasn’t much on the market, Fionna went out of her way to update us constantly with listings and new information about what was available.”


“ Buying & selling real estate is usually fraught with challenges. Fionna’s knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail made working with her for both our home purchase and condo sale last summer a very simple process. She immediately found the home we had been looking for and we sold the condo in a matter of days, over asking with multiple offers. Fionna always keeps her client’s best interests in sharp focus. She is is highly ethical, honest & a just a delight to have in your corner. There is a positive, calm ease to the way Fionna conducts herself and we felt confident throughout the entire process. She is now the only realtor we recommend to family & friends.”
