Live by the lake at Frenchman’s Bay in Pickering
With the GO train offering a short 37-minute commute from Pickering to Union Station and a four-minute walk to the lake, Frenchman’s Bay by Madison Group is set to attract the Toronto professional looking for affordable lakeside living with all of the area’s conveniences, including quick access to Highway 401 and great restaurants and shops in Nautical Village along Liverpool Road.
“There are various natural, recreational, heritage, arts and cultural attractions within a one-kilometre range of the site, especially the boardwalk, beaches and marina,” said project director David Singer in a recent interview with the Globe and Mail.
Frenchman’s Bay offers a superb range of natural, recreational, heritage, arts and cultural attractions for residents and visitors. It is the spectacular natural landscape and abounding recreational opportunities that make Frenchman’s Bay a coastal haven for outdoor enthusiasts.
You cannot miss Frenchman’s Bay Marina and the significant presence of boaters and sailing activity in the surrounding waters during the summer months. To the southeast is Beachfront Park with its elevated boardwalk and beautiful views across Lake Ontario. If you’re in the mood to exercise or explore, then head into the Waterfront Trail system that encircles Frenchman’s Bay and runs east and west alongside the lake’s shoreline. Three major trails – perfect for cycling, running or walking – traverse protected wetlands and woodlots, bluffs, beaches and expansive conservation areas.
Frenchman’s Bay will feature a modern collection of single-detached, two-storey homes of approximately 2,700 square feet with double-car garages, four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and ample room for families to cook, live and relax in style. The spacious interiors feature nine-foot ceilings on the first floor, smooth ceilings throughout and beautifully appointed kitchens with a choice of quartz or granite countertops, upgraded cabinetry and a spa-like master ensuite with a freestanding tub. Single-detached purchasers will be able to further customize their new home at the Madison Decor Studio with a generous bonus offer.
The townhome collection ranges from 1,910 to 2,215 square feet and will offer single-car garages at grade, generous three- or four-bedroom floorplans on three levels, plus a basement. The interiors include designer selected natural oak engineered flooring throughout the second floor and smooth ceilings on both the first and second levels. The carefully appointed kitchens include a wide range of kitchen cabinet choices, and a great selection of granite or quartz countertops. As a special bonus feature, all townhome purchasers can take advantage of a stainless steel kitchen appliance package that includes a slide-in stove, a dishwasher, an over the range microwave and an impressive French door refrigerator.
