Great Gulf Homes – Is it possible to find an affordable home in the GTA?

You may have heard that owning a new home in the GTA has become an almost impossible dream, but that sentiment couldn’t be further from the truth! Great Gulf Whitby Meadows is a new masterplanned community of townhomes and singles coming soon to Taunton Rd. and Coronation Rd. in central Whitby. With freehold towns from 1,485 to 2,110 sq. ft , singles from 1,810 to 3,275 sq. ft., and prices starting at $515,990, it looks like the dream of homeownership is still very much within reach.

Room for a growing family

If you’re wondering where a family of three, four or more can find an affordable new home in the GTA, Great Gulf Whitby Meadows is the answer you’ve been waiting for. Homebuyers will discover beautiful, family-size towns and singles with three- to five-bedroom floorplans available in this exciting new Great Gulf community. Additionally, Great Gulf Whitby Meadows will offer multiple layout options featuring, everything from second floor laundry rooms to expanded mudrooms, walk-in closets, two-car garages and more, to suit all family lifestyles and needs.

Outdoor time has been made a priority in all aspects of this community, with large lots providing ample yard space, charming, nature-infused neighbourhoods, and a sprawling community park.

A convenient commute to Toronto

Only a short drive east of Toronto, Whitby has become Durham Region’s most sought-after destination for active young families. It is a picturesque locale boasting more than 125 parks, 950 acres of active parkland, thousands of acres of lush open space and beaches, plus 60 km of trails, such as the renowned Ash Creek and Heber Down Conservation area. Whitby is also home to Canada’s largest municipally owned recreation facility, and a family-friendly entertainment centre loaded with everything from popular restaurants to a massive movie theatre, and even an indoor skydiving facility.

Not only will Great Gulf Whitby Meadows place homeowners at the bustling heart of the city, but this vibrant new community is only minutes away from the 401, 407, 412, and GO Transit. This makes for an easy, straight-forward commute west to downtown Toronto.

A home for your generation and the next

Great Gulf has a longstanding history in the Whitby area, and its commitment to building high-quality homes not only takes this generation of homebuyers into consideration, but subsequent generations as well.

The homes of Great Gulf Whitby Meadows are being planned with smarter construction, better materials and higher standards intended to benefit families and the environment. Both townhomes and singles will be Energy Star certified to ensure a higher level of energy savings and environmental sustainability. This means elevated standards in heating and cooling, insulation, electrical and plumbing, air quality and energy efficiency. The townhomes and singles will also be built with the science of H+me Technology, a state-of-the-art synergistic process where homes are virtually constructed to ensure precision before anything is physically built. Homes are pre-assembled in a dedicated facility allowing them to be built at a fraction of the time it takes traditionally. The H+me Technology’s advanced process ensures tighter gaps and fewer seams aiding to reduce energy consumption and material waste during construction by up to 70 per cent.

Spacious towns and singles, family-focused neighbourhoods, easy commuting, and all for the best price in the GTA. It sounds like Great Gulf Whitby Meadows is the answer this generation of new homebuyers has been searching for. The question is, what are you waiting for?

Understated elegance is the signature of good design at Blythwood Homes

Luxury is often associated with conspicuous consumption. And while Blythwood’s homes are certainly luxurious, they possess an understated elegance more evocative of confident good taste than ostentation.

Many of these luxury features actually make good sense as they deliver low maintenance costs and increased quiet and comfort. Standard triple-glazed windows enhance energy efficiency. The homes are also Energy Star certified, which assures ongoing comfort and savings.

Blythwood’s kitchens are finished with furniture-grade cabinetry in oak, maple or painted MDF with maple drawer interiors and soft close drawers. Kitchen floors have polished tile or porcelain.

Most people today consider the bathroom to be more than just a place to brush one’s teeth. That’s why Blythwood offers lots of custom options, including tempered glass walk-in showers and sumptuous soaker tubs. And like the kitchens, the bathrooms also feature furniture grade vanities and ceramic tile flooring.

Blythwood’s homes have standard high ceilings with 11-foot heights in great rooms and clerestories of up to 16 feet. These enhance the feel of both foyers as well as principal rooms and give your home a sense of grandeur.

A special feature is the private, gated patio at the rear of their new urban townhomes finished with beautiful paving stones and garden walls. Here you will enjoy lovely, intimate and memorable times with friends and family.

Value, comfort and great design make up the kind of home where great memories are created and preserved.

BLYTHWOOD HOMES

Current communities include The Vintages at Four Mile Creek in Niagara-on-the-Lake and Ridgeway by the Lake in Ridgeway.
