Ashgrove Meadows has picture perfect living in Port Perry
Picture Homes has a personal history with Port Perry, having been a contributing builder to the town for the past 50 years. For this reason, alone, they are intimately aware of choice locations and all that the area has to offer. Their newest neighbourhood is called Ashgrove Meadows.
Few towns are known for their desirable location, and have retained their downtown core, like Port Perry. Located on the shores of Lake Scugog, this community checks all the boxes for those who are looking for a simpler way of life in a charming, small-town setting, but with convenient proximity to urban amenities.
Situated just west of Simcoe Street and south of Highway 7, Ashgrove Meadows introduces a collection of bungalows and two-storey homes on 30-, 37-, 40- and 50- foot lots. While the homes are suitable for a wide range of buyers, empty nesters are finding them especially appealing. Architectural elements on the exteriors include dimensional facades, contrasting textures and oversized windows.
Inside, single family layouts feature nine-foot ceilings on the main floor, country kitchens and spectacular master suites. Select designs include dramatic two-storey foyers, double-sided fireplaces and Juliet balconies as per plan.
Homes are priced from $539,900, and also feature fine finishes throughout, which include hardwood floors, ceramic tiles, quartz countertops in the kitchen and glass showers in the bathroom.
The good life
Step back in time and stroll the main street of Port Perry. Here, you will discover boutique-style shopping in historic buildings, restaurants and coffee houses – all with personalized customer service by the local shop keepers.
Within the town, you’ll find a great library, sports facilities, public pools, a museum and leisure areas. The main street ends on the shores of Lake Scugog, where you can stroll the shoreline or have a picnic in one of the waterfront parks.
When exploring the surrounding area, be sure to stop off at artist studios, antiques’ and farmers’ markets. Multiple golf courses are close at hand, and with three conservation areas nearby, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing and birding enthusiasts can enjoy their pastimes to the fullest.
Port Perry also boasts a thriving cultural community. Residents and visitors promote live performances in the historic Town Hall, as well as the Borelians and the Scugog Choral Society.
A little further afield on Scugog Island is the Great Blue Heron Casino, as well as a local brewery and a farm winery.
Slated to become one of Port Perry’s most charming communities, home purchasers can plan to move into their new home at Ashgrove Meadows in late fall of 2020.
