Lock-and-leave lifestyles

Home buyers are thrilled with the carefree condo, lock-and-leave lifestyle at two popular communities by Rosehaven Homes. It’s a straightforward concept – one that allows residents to lock their door, knowing that the upkeep of their property will be well looked after. Responsibilities, like cutting the grass, raking the leaves, and shovelling the snow are all taken care of, so that travel becomes a care-free pastime.

WATERFRONT LIVING IN GRIMSBY

Scheduled to open this fall is Odyssey – a luxurious 20-storey condominium residence, along with an exclusive collection of condominium townhomes. Located in Grimsby and surrounded by shopping, dining and entertainment, Odyssey offers a picture-perfect lifestyle that’s modern and maintenance-free.

From the high rise condominium building, residents can enjoy expansive views of Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment. Spacious, open-concept interiors, in both the condos and townhomes, feature contemporary finishes that complement a range of personal styles.

Grimsby was recently named the best place to live in Niagara by MoneySense magazine. This town has a wonderful selection of restaurants, shopping, spas, recreation centres, art galleries and more. They have recently revitalized their waterfront, and residents of Odyssey have access to the Waterfront Trail. Natural attributes include tree-lined trails and waterfalls along the Niagara Escarpment and Centennial Park. And, close by is Niagara-on-the-Lake with renowned wineries, restaurants and the Shaw Festival.

Here, residents have easy access to the QEW. And come 2021, GO trains are expected to be running from Grimsby to Toronto’s Union Station.

AFFINITY IN BURLINGTON

Construction is well underway at Affinity Condos, but there’s still time to secure your condominium in these popular mid rise buildings. A wide selection of one- and two-bedroom suites, plus those with a formal dining room, remain. Sizes range from 575 to 1,272 square feet.

Affinity consists of two six-storey, mid rise buildings, and each includes a fitness/yoga room, a party room with kitchen and a rooftop terrace.

Contemporary suites include wide-plank, laminate flooring throughout, as well as 12- x 24-inch imported porcelain floor tile in the bathrooms, quartz countertops in the kitchen and in the bathrooms, and nine-foot smooth ceilings. Five appliances, state-of-the-art roller blinds, in addition to an underground parking space and a storage unit, are also included.

Affinity is situated in an established residential neighbourhood in Burlington, close to waterfront parks and trails, as well as the GO train, Highway 403 and the QEW.

For those who are on the go, as well as empty-nesters, Affinity condominiums are especially appealing. Simply lock-and-leave for a happy-go-lucky lifestyle.

Specialized home building in coveted locations

When a company specializes in a particular product or service, the customer ultimately benefits, as they can be assured that the most advanced research, testing and implementation of said commodity has been performed. The same school of thought is behind Homes by DeSantis. Not only have they perfected their craft in terms of home building, but they have focused on particular areas in which to develop, and, as a result, the home buyer benefits from this intimate knowledge.

For close to 60 years Homes by DeSantis has been building and developing properties from Hamilton to Niagara. Started by Peter DeSantis in 1959, the company is now run by his son, Gabriel. With more than 12,000 homes to their credit, this family-based organization works extremely hard to promote Canadian home ownership. “Our focus is geared to more compact, smart and affordable living,” says DeSantis. “Homes with less maintenance – that are more lifestyle oriented.”

CLASSIC COMMUNITIES

DeSantis currently has four sites under construction and new releases scheduled. The waterfront condominiums of AquaZul feature resort-like amenities, including a fitness centre, and a pool with cabanas and a barbecue area.

The final release at Centreville in Beamsville features new designs. Located in the heart of town, this all-encompassing community includes 44 smart townhouses and six commercial spaces.

Myst is an exquisite collection of urban towns located on the shores of Lake Ontario in Stoney Creek. It’s positioning affords residents easy access to transit and major arteries.

Coming this fall is the third phase of On The Ridge. Situated high on the Niagara Escarpment, residents of this community will enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities and recreational opportunities.

Century Condos in downtown Grimsby is a mid-rise building that will feature commercial space on the main level. “Century condos is the perfect reward for those who aspire to an elevated living experience,” says DeSantis.

Team DeSantis accepts the award for Community of the Year for Lincoln Square from the Hamilton-Halton Home Builders' Association.

GIVING BACK

Gabriel DeSantis has been immersed in the home building industry for most of his life. In 1996 he was president of the Hamilton-Halton Home Builders’ Association – one of the largest in Ontario. He served as a director on the board for the Ontario Home Builders’ Association from 1995 to 1997, dedicating much of his time to the New Home Warranty Program (Tarion).

In 2012, DeSantis became the first home builder in the region to build a home, along with their suppliers and contractors, for Habitat for Humanity. DeSantis also contributes to many charitable organizations, including the Ronald McDonald House in Hamilton, as well as the Princess Margaret and St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundations.

GENERATIONAL KUDOS

Homes by DeSantis are now seeing the children, and the grandchildren, of those who purchased from the company more than 50 years ago, buying their first home. “We’re now getting third generation buyers,” says DeSantis. “It’s very humbling. But it also means that we’re doing something right.”

DeSantis goes on to say that it’s important to always think ahead of the curve. With the constant changes in government policies, interest rates and market fluctuations, they have to deliver what their customers are looking for. Not only do they appeal to first-time buyers, but they are also cognizant of the perquisites, and the necessities, that empty nesters desire. “Those who are looking to downsize are usually quite happy to sell their big home and settle into a smart space with everything within walking distance,” says DeSantis. “People are enjoying life that much more, and condo ownership gives them the freedom to do other things.”

Odyssey

Rosehaven Homes introduces an icon of modern style on the waterfront

Welcome to forever views of water and sky, white sails and the iconic Toronto skyline across the bay. Welcome to Ontario’s world-renowned wine region and the picturesque town of Grimsby, brimming with local goodness, the Niagara Escarpment and a future GO Train Station that will get you to Union in just over an hour. This is Odyssey, a fresh new community of modern condos and towns by award-winning Rosehaven Homes. Your journey leads here.

“Odyssey will be a first of its kind on this section of the Grimsby waterfront. It will be iconic, full of light and life, reflecting not only the water and sky, but a dynamic sense of community.” – Kirkor Architects

Rising high above the waterfront, Odyssey will feature a brilliant glass façade, wrapping each residence in natural light. Its purposeful, stepped back design and rooftop social spaces will give residents spectacular views of Lake Ontario. It will be one of the tallest condominiums in Grimsby, highlighted by a circle of exclusive, street level townhomes with retail shops and patios.

Reflective. Vibrant. Welcoming. Home

“Our inspiration was to create interiors that harmonize with the architecture and waterfront. The lobby and welcome lounge were designed to be not only grand in size, but also in volume, allowing for creative lighting details.” – Patton Design Studio

Inside, Odyssey will be highlighted by its entertainment spaces, particularly its rooftop Sky Lounge, Sunset Boulevard and Lakeview Terrace. Equipped with ample seating, both inside and out, a chef’s kitchen and prep station, plus two terraces with fireplaces, a barbecue, private alcoves and brilliant views of the lake and escarpment, this will be the ultimate space for hosting dinner parties, celebrating family or simply enjoying an evening to yourself.

Nautically-Inspired Suites

“We kept the palette light and white so it pairs naturally with flashes of blue from the lake to create a modern, yet relaxed ambience.” – Patton Design Studio

Welcome to the heart of Odyssey. Where great design intuitively complements your lifestyle and the quality of finishes enhances not just the look, but also the feel of each suite. This is where the unison of design and detail creates comfort in every setting.

Contemporary Towns

Odyssey will feature two collections of townhomes. The Winston Collection will feature a contemporary, streamlined design, beautiful rooftop terraces, the benefit and convenience of private underground parking and, most notably, an active, energetic vibe from its street-level shops and services. The Windward Collection will offer a more private and intimate feel by overlooking the central courtyard and tower’s roundabout entrance. Each one will be highlighted by four floors of modern living, spacious rooftop terraces, plus parking for two cars in a private garage and driveway.

Ready, Set, Go

Everything begins at the shores of Lake Ontario. Walk, bike or run the waterfront trail system, then explore the Niagara Escarpment’s Bruce Trail, caves and lookouts. For your urban endeavours, take the future Grimsby GO Train to downtown Toronto in just over an hour or stay local in Grimsby to shop, eat and workout. Let’s not forget that this is world-renowned wine country with award-winning favourites from Magnotta, Inniskillin and Vineland just down the QE.

Rosehaven is excited to announce that the launch of Odyssey is slated for this fall 2018. Register now at OdysseyLife.ca for project updates and an invitation to preview.

AQUAZUL Waterfront Condos

Homes By DeSantis announces final release

Gorgeous lakeside views was one of the main reasons that new home buyers flocked to the AQUAZUL waterfront condominium project. Spacious suites and deluxe finishes helped to seal the deal. Homes By DeSantis announces the final release of residences with their Elite Series at this popular Lake Ontario development.

A variety of popular floorplans were released in each of the two condo buildings. These intimate, six- and 10-storey structures include remaining suites that range from 609 to 1,335 square feet – many with lake views.

PURE LUXURY

Purchasers who are looking for a larger suite will be enamoured with the Surfside. This impressive, 1,335-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom suite, also includes an oversized 645-square-foot terrace, with stunning views of Lake Ontario. The gracious 1,127-square-foot Bayside suite features two bedrooms, plus a den, and two bathrooms. And the 982-square-foot Bayfront suite also includes two bedrooms and two baths.

Sumptuous finishes include a choice of quartz or granite counter tops in the kitchen, as well as extended-height upper cabinets, six appliances, wide-plank laminate flooring and soaring ceilings up to 10 feet.

The features and amenities at AQUAZUL are not only luxurious, but they heighten the resort-like feeling. The third floor club room includes a theatre, a gym and a billiards room, as well as a sprawling balcony perched atop a dramatic two-storey loggia. This elevated outdoor space provides views of the courtyard, pool, cabanas and outdoor grill areas, and, of course, Lake Ontario.

WELL POSITIONED

Situated in the town of Grimsby, this Niagara region location is experiencing incredible waterfront growth. The municipality is investing $5 million into a waterfront park that will include promenades and lakeside trails to newly constructed beaches and outdoor pavilions.

Grimsby serves up a full complement of shops and services. AQUAZUL is extremely close to the proposed GO Station that is scheduled to arrive in 2021 at Casablanca Boulevard and the QEW. “We’ve become very good at staying ahead of the curve. People want to live at the lake, they want luxury and easy access to major centres – all at an affordable price,” says Gabriel Desantis, president. “AQUAZUL will be an icon on the Grimsby waterfront, both from an architectural perspective and an amenity perspective.”

DeSantis is pleased to report that AQUAZUL was recently named the mid-rise condominium project of the year by the Hamilton-Halton Home Builders’ Association.

With construction well underway, the first residents are scheduled to settle into their new homes in 2019. Only nine residences remain in the final phase of the Elite Series at AQUAZUL.
