Priced from the upper $400’s, a new release of lots is now available, including a limited number of park lots.

Ironwood is situated on a private street on an 11-acre property between Camp Samac and Oshawa Creek in Cedar Valley. The Ironwood community backs onto hundreds of acres of valley land, forest and stream, and is minutes to Cedar Valley Conservation Area, Centennial Park and Somerset Park.

Community amenities include a private landscaped park, community gardens, an off-leash dog park, children’s playground, walking path, tobogganing hill and a sports field with a seasonal ice rink – all backing onto the protected acres of ravine lands.

Townhome sizes range from a generous 1,521 to 1,865 sq. ft.

Harbour Ten10 emphasizes quality of life as one of Whitby’s first condo projects

HarbourTen10

Close to Whitby’s waterfront, with its beaches and trails and with a diversity of parks, recreation facilities, downtown shopping, schools and public transit all nearby, the appropriately named Harbour Ten10 Condominiums in Whitby could deserve a 10 out of 10 when it comes to providing prospective homeowners with exceptional quality of living.

Whitby is one of Canada’s fastest growing communities, and with good reason with its historic small town, a thriving entertainment scene, proximity to nature (including 950 acres of parkland and 65 km of trails), Iroquois Park Sports Centre (Canada’s largest municipally owned recreation facility) and such unique attractions as the massive Nordik Spa Nature Whitby that’s scheduled to open in the fall of 2019.

In sharp contrast to homes priced beyond the reach of most buyers in the GTA, the suites at Harbour Ten10 are not only affordable – starting in the mid-$300’s, but they also offer tremendous value, with such premium features as nine-ft. ceilings, laminate plank flooring throughout and textured granite countertops. Adding to this value proposition, is an impressive list of onsite amenities that include: A social lounge with fireplace, an onsite greenspace with playground, a barbecue terrace and dedicated rooms for yoga, games and parties. In addition, the five-storey condominium project features an upscale hotel-like lobby with concierge as well as guest suites.

Consistent with the Harbour Ten10 name and address (1010 Dundas St. E.), the site is less than a 10-minute drive from what buyers ranging from young families to empty nesters would ever need, with attractions ranging from: Whitby’s historic downtown (just one km away) as well as the Oshawa Centre (with 230 stores), the Whitby Public Library, the Oshawa Golf and Curling Club, Lydee Shores Conservation area on Lake Ontario and local public and high schools as well as Trent University – Durham campus, the Ontario Institute of Technology and Durham College. Port Whitby Marina and Iroquois Beach Park with its long sandy beach and picnic areas are also minutes away.

In addition to all that’s at your doorstep, Harbour Ten10 is a short drive from Hwy. 401, 407 and the 412 and just six minutes from the GO Train Station, which gets you to Union Station in just 20 to 25 minutes.

“With any project we build, we put a great deal of thought into what today’s homeowners are looking for, so that when people hear about a community like Harbour Ten10, right away they know the homes are affordable, they offer good value and when you add up all of the onsite amenities and local attractions, it really is a great place to live,” says Nizar Walji, vice-president of Castle Group Developments.

Harbour Ten10 is Castle Group’s fifth GTA project, including Vida at Bayview Village which is currently under construction. Consistent with building great places to live, Castle Group has won two prestigious best-design awards from BILD.
