Petrolia, Ontario-based United Country Real Estate | Great West Realty Inc. Brokerage specializes in farms, country homes, waterfront property and development land for sale throughout Lambton County and surrounding areas in Southwestern Ontario.
Our real estate office is located in the “Canada Victorian Oil Town” of Petrolia, which is roughly an hour’s drive from London, Ont., and fewer than two hours from Detroit, Mich. The town is within Lambton County (population around 132,000 as of 2022).
Southwestern Ontario is defined by its many water features including Lake Huron, Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair, Georgian Bay and the St. Clair River. The southernmost section of this region has the highest population as it is the most industrialized and is close to the Canada/United States border.
There are many appealing cities, townships and communities in Lambton County, here on Southwestern Ontario’s “Blue Coast,” a name that reflects the surrounding crystal waters of Lake Huron. Petrolia, in the middle of the county, is a welcoming and vibrant town. Historically speaking, Petrolia and nearby Oil Springs are known for starting North America’s oil industry.
About 25 minutes to the west is St. Clair, a township of around 15,000 residents that offers plenty of places to live, work and play along the St. Clair River. From there, head due north to Sarnia where the river meets Lake Huron. This is the county’s largest city, known for great year-round recreation, and a thriving arts and culture scene.
Drive 45 minutes northeast of Sarnia to reach Lambton Shores — an ideal summer beach spot with unique shops and restaurants, wooded trails with wildlife and a whole lot more.
