Geranium makes water-saving a priority at Edgewood in Pickering

Purchasers at Geranium‘s new home community Edgewood in Pickering will enjoy the water conservation benefits of having a Greyter Home water recycling system included in their home at no extra charge.

Geranium is the first homebuilder in Canada to parcel this feature into the construction of an entire community. For Edgewood homeowners, this will mean reducing their annual water bill by approximately 20 per cent and, for a family of four, saving up to 30,000 litres of water in one year – an amount of water that could fill a 16-by-32-ft. rectangular swimming pool.

“Water is a precious resource and Canadians are one of the highest users per capita worldwide,” says Boaz Feiner, president of Geranium. “At home, we use hundreds of litres of water daily by showering, bathing, flushing toilets, running dishwashers and washing machines. In 2013, we learned about Greyter’s initiatives for the commercial market. Although there wasn’t a residential system available in Canada, they were working towards changing that. Going forward, we decided to include the rough-in for a greywater system in our lowrise homes, something that would be much more costly to do if possible at all, once the house was built. By providing the rough-in, we are giving the owners of our homes the opportunity to buy and install a system when they became available for houses.”

Greyter’s Home system captures and treats shower and bathwater so it can be reused for flushing toilets. The entire compact system is installed inside the home, requires only five standard plumbing connections and is easy for a professional plumber to install. Additional features are its superior, proprietary filtration and treatment process; low maintenance; low energy requirements; and comes with a touchpad controller that handles all aspects of the system operation and provides the homeowner with performance data, maintenance reminders and tutorials.

Geranium and Greyter will share data collected from the Edgewood homes, with the City of Pickering and Durham Region. Geranium has been selected as the winner of the City of Pickering’s 2019 Sustainability Award for its Edgewood community.

Madison Group launches the final release of Frenchman’s Bay

The final limited release at Frenchman’s Bay, by Madison Group, is launching March 7 in south Pickering. With the GO train offering a short 28-minute commute from Pickering to Union Station and a four-minute walk to the lake, Frenchman’s Bay is set to attract anyone looking for affordable lakeside living with all of the area’s conveniences, including quick access to Hwy. 401, great restaurants and shops in Nautical Village along Liverpool Road.

The project offers a modern collection of single-detached, two-storey homes of approximately 3,351 sq. ft. with double-car garages, four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms and a finished basement with a walk-up for families to cook, live and relax in style.

The townhome collection ranges from 1,910 to 2,155 sq. ft. and will offer single car garages at grade, generous three- or four-bedroom floorplans on three levels, plus a basement.

The interiors include designer selected natural oak engineered flooring throughout the second floor and smooth ceilings on both the first and second levels. The carefully appointed kitchens include a wide range of cabinet designs, and a great selection of granite or quartz countertops.

Located within the site are three fully decorated model homes. The Wharf, Southport and Newport models have all been uniquely designed to showcase the floorplan layouts available for purchase. “The addition of our new fully outfitted model homes will give our visitors the opportunity to visualize their future home and get inspired by the interior design and new trends,” says David Singer, director of lowrise.

It is the spectacular natural landscape and abounding recreational opportunities that make Frenchman’s Bay a coastal haven for outdoor enthusiasts. You cannot miss Frenchman’s Bay Marina and the significant presence of boaters and sailing activity in the surrounding waters during the summer months. To the southeast is Beachfront Park with its elevated boardwalk and beautiful views across Lake Ontario. If you’re in the mood to exercise or explore, then head into the Waterfront Trail system that encircles Frenchman’s Bay and runs east and west alongside the Lake’s shoreline. Three major trails – perfect for cycling, running or walking – traverse protected wetlands and woodlots, bluffs, beaches and expansive conservation areas.

“There are various natural, recreational, heritage, arts and cultural attractions within a one-km range of the site, especially the boardwalk, beaches and marina,” said Singer in an interview with the Globe and Mail.

All of the homes in Frenchman’s Bay are built and drywalled, giving purchasers the opportunity to customize their interior finishes and move in as early as this summer.
