Luxury towns and semis at The Windsor in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Located in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) are two new developments by Solmar Development Corp. Located at The Corners of John and Victoria is a collection of two-storey, semi-detached homes. Situated at Anne and Gate streets is The Windsor, which features luxury townhomes.

Picture perfect

Both developments showcase gorgeous architectural features and old world charm. Exterior facades include brick and stone, with exquisite masonry detailing, covered porches, decorative columns and cobble-stoned driveways. Semi-detached models also include finished basements with a three-piece bathroom, and electric car-charging hookups. Designer townhomes are available for immediate occupancy, and purchasers get to choose their own finishings.

In addition to low-maintenance exteriors, landscaping packages are also available. Inside, every detail has been carefully curated, and quality craftsmanship ensures timeless elegance for years to come. All homes also include oak hardwood flooring and smooth ceilings throughout, as well as oak stairs and handrails, upgraded appliance packages, soft-close cabinetry and granite countertops in the kitchen, plus full glass showers and marble countertops in the bathrooms.

An abundance of charm

There’s nothing quite like the old town of NOTL with fine boutiques, restaurants and spas, as well as the renowned Shaw Festival Theatre. Here, you’ll enjoy strolling the streets to admire the wonderfully kept homes and poking through the shops. Explore beautiful natural spaces with walking and biking trails, as well as award winning vineyards (some with world-class restaurants).

In this blissful Niagara wine region, 13 plays on three stages are performed each year from April to December. Move into your new home and get ready for the 2020 season.

At The Windsor, the townhouse collection is nearing completion. Two designer finished, and furnished, model homes are open at 134 Anne Street. Each model home is expertly crafted and in move-in condition. Some are available for immediate closing, or take your time and choose a personal decor package, and move within the next few months.

Construction has begun on the semi-detached models with expected occupancy slated for the spring of 2020.

Builder Profile: Blythwood Homes

Quality without compromise

Some 30 years ago, Robert Mills founded Blythwood Homes. From day one, he set out to become Niagara region’s best builder. As a result of hard work and a dedication to his craft, becoming one of the most respected in southern Ontario was a natural progression.

The philosophy behind Blythwood Homes is simple – if it isn’t remarkable, it’s not worth building. This school of thought has left Mills in good standing, and the homes and communities that he’s built over the years speak for themselves. From a stately home in Niagara-on-the-Lake’s John Street, or an exquisite bungalow townhome at Tanbark Trail in St. Davids, to the elegant intimacy of Ridgeway by the Lake, the common thread in each community is that uncompromising standards are the norm. “I’ve always been more of a quality than quantity person,” says Mills. “I couldn’t get excited about building cookie-cutter houses. To me, it’s all about the quality.”

Blythwood Homes uses only the finest materials, inside and out. It’s difficult to tell if a Blythwood-built home was recently finished, or if it’s over twenty years old. This has to do with the fact that quality products, like stone, stucco and Hardie™ Board stand the test of time.

Interior finishing details are exquisite on each, and every, home. Kitchens and bathrooms showcase furniture-quality cabinetry, and rounded wall corners, as well as extra-wide baseboards and door trim are used throughout.

Extended ceiling heights grace all principal rooms, and range from nine to 12 feet high, depending upon the interior floorplan. Coffered ceilings add a touch of elegance, as do clerestory windows and skylights.

Windows receive special attention from Blythwood Homes. Larger windows with low-E glass are filled with argon gas to ensure year-round comfort. In addition, when a new home purchaser requests south- or west-facing views, the windows receive extra treatment to help keep harmful UV rays from fading furniture and drapes.

All homes built by Blythwood include furnaces with a 97 per cent efficiency rate, in addition to energy recovery ventilators and modulating thermostats – all of which provide the ultimate in comfort and in savings. “We’ve enjoyed great success over the years because people recognize good quality, as well as the value it adds to any home,” says Mills. “The Ontario Building Code is the bare minimum that is required to build a home. We believe in going beyond the building code, and providing our purchasers with more than just a house.”

The team at Blythwood Homes is a family affair. Both Mills’s wife and daughter are involved in the day-today operations. “My daughter, Alexa, joined the business five years ago and is learning every aspect of what we do,” says Mills. “She’s a keen learner and a stickler for detail.”

Choosing locations in which to build is at the core of each community. “We look for parcels that abut green spaces, and in areas where home values are likely to increase.”

Ridgeway by the Lake is a perfect example. This upscale, adult lifestyle community was recently completed and includes close to 300 homes. Since the opening of the project, housing values have virtually doubled. “People who purchased early at Ridgeway did very well in terms of how much their homes appreciated,” says Mills.

Adult lifestyle communities are becoming very popular. Blythwood Homes is in the midst of launching another community in Ridgeway, called The Oaks, and a second one in St David’s, called Vintages at Four-Mile Creek. “We are happy to provide quality housing to active adults,” adds Alexa Mills. “And we are looking to expand our repertoire with mid-rise, luxury condominiums.”

As with all their homes, whether it’s a detached design or a bungalow townhome, quality is the key to Blythwood Homes’ success.
