No longer is Vaughan just the city above Toronto, it’s now known as ‘The Place To Be.’


In Vaughan, over 80 per cent of the housing is single-family, detached dwellings, and about 94 per cent of residents own their own home. However, with the province’s Places to Grow policy, Vaughan is seeing a boom of condominium towers along the vibrant Highway 7. Maple, Concord, Kleinburg and Woodbridge are also seeing housing booms, with lots of master-planed communities on offer.

It also has a 20-acre water park and its fall season includes Halloween Hunt.

The City of Vaughan is also home to some of the best public and private golf courses in the GTA, including The National, The Board of Trade, Bayview, Thornhill, Cardinal, Eagles Nest, Maple Downs and Copper Creek.

At Kleinburg Summit, the Gallery on the Park executive townhomes are perfectly planned

Kleinburg is a town well known across Canada for its eclectic art galleries, including the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, which features the largest selection of Canada’s famed Group of Seven. It seemed only fitting that in Mattamy’s community of Kleinburg Summit they would feature executive townhomes known as the Gallery on the Park Collection.

Over the years, Mattamy has learned a great deal about the art of architecture and the importance of nature in creating a wonderful environment in which to live, thrive and enjoy. In Kleinburg Summit‘s Gallery on the Park Collection, nature is bountiful.

These townhomes embody the best of modern living surrounded by an environment that is perfect for active people who like to run, hike and cycle. It’s equally as appealing to those who prefer to find a spot under a tree to read a book, or spread out a blanket and enjoy a family picnic. The streams, fields and forests are virtually right outside your front window. The idea is that you should be able to enjoy a stress-free zone right outside your front door.

In the Gallery on the Park Collection of executive townhomes, the art of architecture supports the need for functionality of space. The notion of “a place for everything and everything in its place” is more than a notion in these townhomes. They are, by design, perfectly planned to serve the needs of the people living in them.

There is a sense of openness in these executive townhomes, an organic flow of space that is both inspiring and comforting. And to ensure that you can make the interior your own, Mattamy offers a state-of-the-art Design Studio, staffed by professional design consultants who will assist in finding the countertops, cabinets, flooring, mouldings and tiles that make your home a complete reflection of your style.

You’ll also quickly discover that executive townhomes in Kleinburg Summit’s Gallery on the Park are never just another row of townhomes. They offer individual exterior designs so your home has individual character and the streets take on the character of a quaint village. These townhomes also offer enough space to park four cars.

Kleinburg Summit is right in the heart of the town so you can readily enjoy the local shops, fine restaurants and scenery, including the highly regarded Kortright Centre for Conservation. As you stroll the streets you will find a cordiality that is common in a small village. You’ll also find all of this while maintaining a connection to the city.

And, coming soon, there will be three detached Model Homes so you can examine the design thinking and superb craftsmanship in Kleinburg Summit’s homes.

Mattamy built their very first home in 1978. Since then, they have built more than 90,000 homes across Canada and the United States. In the GTA, they have the distinction of having earned an unprecedented seven BILD Homebuilder of the Year Awards, including last year.

The executive townhomes of Kleinburg Summit’s Gallery on the Park Collection offers your family the best of everything, inside and outside.

Gallery on the Park executive townhomes are priced from $799,990 and detached homes from $889,990.
