Bungalows achieve sales success at Courts of Canterbury in Port Perry

The first phase of spectacular bungalow and bungalow-loft designs at Courts of Canterbury is more than 50 percent sold. Home builder, Geranium, started construction in late 2019, and the neighbourhood has been taking shape throughout the winter months.

Established infrastructure

Located alongside Lake Scugog in picturesque Port Perry, Courts of Canterbury homes will blend with the existing Canterbury Common adult-lifestyle community, built more than 20 years ago.

At its centre is a resident-only clubhouse, where homeowners can enjoy a multitude of social and fitness activities, as well as an outdoor pool and planned excursions. “The majority of Courts of Canterbury’s purchasers are scaling down from their family home. They plan to simplify their life, yet live in comfort, while taking advantage of a newly-built, warrantied home with the choice of interior finishes,” says Stephanie Lane, Geranium’s director of sales and marketing. “The private clubhouse adds an exciting opportunity to belong, and join in various activities throughout the year.”

Flexible living

Courts of Canterbury offers a variety of floorplans, many with a loft option, in addition to open-concept spaces for flexible living and entertaining. Homes have a main-floor master bedroom and deluxe ensuite bathroom. Two model homes showcase the imaginative designs. High-end finishes include nine-foot ceilings and quality kitchen cabinetry paired with elegant granite countertops. These features are parcelled with Geranium’s stringent construction methods and materials that exceed Ontario’s Building Code. New construction offers energy efficiency and ensures lower maintenance requirements, without expensive replacements of the roof and windows for many years.

Close at hand

Courts of Canterbury is located minutes from trails, parks, a marina, unique shops, and an array of services and eateries in Port Perry’s charming downtown core. Lakeridge Health Port Perry is known for excellent, and friendly, medical care. The town hosts many events throughout the year, including live music, theatre and festivals.

Peterborough and Port Perry

Latest News


Peterborough and Port Perry

Located just 90 minutes northeast of Toronto, Peterborough retains its down-home appeal, while offering an expanse of unspoiled opportunities throughout the Kawarthas.

Peterborough Lift Lock

The Kawarthas Lakes’ region stretches the boundaries of Peterborough, and includes Chemong, Scugog, Pigeon, Rice, Sturgeon, Balsam and Silver Lakes. From mid-spring to late fall, houseboat rentals are a popular holiday mode of transportation, with the Peterborough Lift Lock providing access to the Trent Severn Waterway – one of the most picturesque water route systems in Canada.

Devil’s Elbow ski resort has 14 runs and three terrain parks, and snowshoers can enjoy 8.5 kilometres of trails. Peterborough is also at the heart of Ontario’s network of snowmobile trails.

The Petroglyphs Provincial Park features the largest known collection of Aboriginal carvings. Considered sacred, the sketchings are believed to date back from 900 to 1100 A.D.

The Peterborough Film Festival takes place in late January, Maplefest in March and the Hiawatha Annual Pow Wow in May. Festivals, concerts and studio tours abound throughout the year.

With the eventual opening of Highway 407 in 2020, Peterborough will be even more accessible to the GTA and the Golden Horseshoe.

Port Perry

Closer still is Port Perry, located less than an hour’s drive northeast of Toronto, on the shores of Lake Scugog. As part of Scugog Township, this town has preserved its charming downtown core, which has become a popular tourist attraction, as well as a favourite backdrop for location managers who are looking for the perfect small-town feel for their next movie.

Port Perry waterfront

With the lake at the bottom of the main street, residents enjoy picnics, fishing, boating and lakeside strolls. Close by are conservation areas and The Great Blue Heron Charity Casino. The area boasts a vibrant arts community, as well as local breweries, wineries and a range of dining options.

Port Perry is becoming extremely popular with retirees, and builders are responding with thoughtful housing options. Best of all – Ontario’s Greenbelt legislation restricts new development in the surrounding countryside, which means that the chances of sprawling new subdivisions spoiling the idyllic view are virtually nil.
