You can’t retire in Professor’s Walk Orillia
Democrat Homes has made it practically impossible for you to retire in Professor’s Walk in Orillia! Certainly, all the hallmarks of inspired retirement-style living are here, but none of the exclusionary negatives often associated with typical “retirement communities.”
First of all, Professor’s Walk is a blended community with a good mix of 50-plus homeowners and 20-plus young families, all living harmoniously in a small-town atmosphere surrounded by big city amenities. You own your own home here – no condo fees or restrictive boards telling you what do, and when you can do it! Mainstreet Orillia with its picture postcard charm is just a five-minute drive away… as are the big box stores and familiar restaurants of the new Orillia. If you prefer to walk, hike or bike, your home is surrounded by trails, woods and protected greenspaces. Bass Lake is close at hand… and don’t forget the Lightfoot trail and scenic waterfront also within easy reach. The setting alone inspires activity filled days and delicious evenings.
You can fill your days with a busy schedule of visiting museums and art galleries, sports and theatre… all followed by wining and dining to your heart’s content. Orillia also has a vibrant music season topped by the world-renowned Mariposa Folk Festival. If work is still in your future… work from home with available highspeed Internet, convenient public transit and easy connections to highways. Professor’s Walk is just one hour north of north Toronto, and 15 minutes from Barrie.
But what about the houses? Phase 4 offers a gorgeous assortment of bungalows and two-storey homes on 40- and 50-ft. lots, all with two-car garages. The two-, three- and four-bedroom layouts provide maximum lifestyle options combined with open layouts and sun-dappled windows. The bungalows are ideal for empty-nesters who prefer life with fewer stairs to climb. But their gourmet kitchens (with three-piece appliance package included) and spa inspired ensuites, ensure a commodious life with plenty of style. The manageable lawns and gardens are perfectly suited to low or even no maintenance living, with a small assist from extremely affordable grass and snow services.
Two-storey homes top out at an expansive 2,900 sq. ft., with traditional layouts and spacious principal rooms. The master bedrooms are designed with walk-in closets and large ensuites that are well equipped with sunken tubs and separate showers. The standards included in the purchase price, mean that you don’t have to upgrade anything if you so desire. Stone and brick facades, oak stairs, hardwood and plush carpeted areas, nine-ft. main floor heights and California knock-down ceilings are just a few of the exceptional features included.
Best of all, these state-of-the art homes come in more than 12 designs starting from the mid $400,000s. You can cash out your big city home and move here for half the Toronto price. Professor’s Walk is another fine project by Democrat Homes, with more than four decades of creating homes… built to appreciate.
