Silvergate Homes is redefining Niagara living

For more than 35 years, Silvergate Homes has excelled in new home building in Niagara. Owned and operated by two generations of the Passero family, Silvergate has carefully nurtured a reputation for exceptional quality and a commitment to customer service.

This underlying philosophy hasn’t changed since day one, and Silvergate is now getting noticed well beyond the local new home market. Its two flagship communities, Legends on the Green and Village on the Twelve, are attracting the attention of a growing number of homebuyers from the GTA who are seeking value and luxury in Niagara.

Legendary living

An Energy Star®-certified contemporary bungalow townhome community, Legends on the Green, offers luxury living and architectural elegance. Backing onto the outstanding Legends on the Niagara championship golf course, this rare enclave community of 58 upscale bungalow towns is located in the charming village of Chippawa along the Niagara River.

“We’re extremely proud of Legends on the Green,” says John Passero, President of Silvergate Homes. “The location is second-to-none with its secluded backdrop along the golf course, yet it’s just minutes away from all the amenities Niagara Falls has to offer.”

The architecturally controlled exteriors at Legends combine a stylish fusion of dark siding, stone and modern brick. Interior layouts and finishes exude luxury, with designer kitchens, spa-like ensuites and spacious living areas.

Village on the Twelve

Overlooking a beautiful ravine along the banks of St. Catharines’ historic Twelve Mile Creek is one of Silvergate’s most luxurious releases to date. The sixth phase of Village on the Twelve is a limited collection of two-storey and bungalow townhomes.

These homes offer upscale, modern design, along with architecturally controlled exteriors to ensure aesthetic beauty and balance within the community. Innovative floorplans and contemporary styling elevate this collection of stunning homes, with multiple windows that highlight clean lines and bright interiors.

This secluded oasis in one of the city’s most prestigious areas, and is referred to as Niagara’s Urban Hub. Residents of Village on the Twelve are just a short, five-minute drive from the downtown, which offers premier dining, a new performing arts centre and the Meridian Centre sports and spectator facility.

Niagara’s growing allure

Real estate in the Niagara Region is booming as buyers from the GTA look to escape an overheated metropolitan market. It is the perfect place to downsize, and to lock in exceptional value. GTA sellers can upscale their comfort and luxury, while achieving considerable savings.

Both Legends on the Green and Village on the Twelve are ideal home bases for enjoying some of Niagara’s top amenities. The area caters to millions of visitors every year, so when it comes to conveniences, comforts and hospitality, the Niagara Region’s population of approximately 450,000 punches well above its weight. Destinations include 88 nearby wineries, Niagara’s Ale Trail, fine dining, two casinos and the Fort Erie Racetrack. Golfers can choose to play at more than 40 courses, and hundreds of kilometres of hiking and biking trails are available throughout the region. In addition to local farmers’ markets and harvest festivals, shoppers have access to outlet malls on both sides of the border.

Better build homes

By choosing a home at one of these two communities, you’re selecting a better-built home by Silvergate, which includes superior architecture and craftsmanship, along with innovative designs and the most up-to-date materials. Staff members are committed to personalized customer service throughout the home buying process.

Silvergate Homes is an award-winning, Tarion Warranty builder and RenoMark contractor, with more than 30 builder awards for Excellence, Design, Marketing and Environmental Stewardship. Their homes are built to exceed provincial building code standards. Silvergate is dedicated to building energy-friendly new homes through eco-friendly practices and technologies.
