Wingham is the place where it all comes together. Home to our head office and flagship Design Centre, this Huron County town embodies the very best in small town living. If you are thinking of building a home in Wingham, or are interested in our prefabricated home building process, we’d like to take the opportunity to tell you more about our proud little hometown.
Living in Wingham, Ontario
Sunday picnics. Nature walks. Thriving local businesses. This is a place that preserves some of the best parts of our past; in many ways, living in Wingham lets you enjoy the high points of a life many Canadian towns have forgotten.
While there are many small towns in Southern Ontario, few happen to sit on such prime real estate. Less than three hours from Toronto and an hour from Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge, this town sits in an ideal location for couples looking to retire from the busy working life. We enjoy a more relaxed pace here in Wingham, but we don’t have to travel far to experience the shopping, nightlife, and major cultural events in the city.
Many younger families are also building homes in Wingham so their kids can grow up with clean air and countryside. Despite its modest population, the town offers both public and Catholic schooling.
Home in the Heart of Huron County
Lake Huron is the second-largest of the Great Lakes. On its southeast shore lies the expansive Huron County, whose borders encompass the communities of Wingham and Goderich among other modest country towns.
The region has both a rural and cottage country character. It is known as well for golden coastlines as endless acres of farmland. Along Lake Huron, you’ll find port towns reminiscent of the Muskokas; further inland, the land is defined by its agricultural tradition. Huron County farms out-produce those in any other part of Ontario. Call it the best of both worlds!

The Royal Homes Wingham Design Centre
Our Wingham Design Centre showcases three of the most acclaimed model homes in the Royal Homes catalogue: the Lynden, the Oxford, and the Citadel. If your family is considering building a home in Wingham or elsewhere in Southern Ontario, we welcome you to visit and see firsthand all a custom prefabricated home can be.
The Lynden exemplifies simple bungalow living. Its floorplan makes the most of every square inch of space, perfect for long and narrow lots. The exterior blends the classic Canadian cottage with a touch of craftsman style, making for a home that is cozy inside and out.
Those who prefer a more modern bungalow will find inspiration in the Oxford — bright and airy on the inside, with beautiful brickwork and stately earth-toned siding outside. The versatile, open floor plan is made to accommodate families with children of all ages, including empty nesters who love having their grandkids over to visit.
Finally, there’s the Citadel, aptly named for its impressive front porch flanked by grand columns and floor-to-ceiling windows. This two-story prefabricated home is almost like having a luxury hotel all to yourself! The walk-out basement even includes a wine cellar and home theatre.
Whether you’re set on building a home in Wingham or simply exploring the possibilities, Wingham is well worth the country drive. To learn more about visiting the Royal Home Wingham Design Centre, call us at 519-357-2444. We’ll see you there!
