The Towns at Gracefields now open in Newcastle

When it comes to a picturesque and charming town, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more delightful place than the Village of Newcastle. Nestled on the shores of Lake Ontario just an hour east of Toronto, Newcastle was named one of the best small towns in Ontario by Comfort Life magazine. You can stroll down historic streets, walk along the lakeshore or enjoy beautiful nature right outside your door.

Newcastle’s population is just under 10,000, but it offers all of the conveniences of urban life. Shopping, dining, golfing, a marina, a number of schools including public and separate and a robust recreation centre make living here enjoyable. Add to that the close proximity to Highway 401 for commuters and you can see why Newcastle has become such a great choice for Toronto homebuyers looking to stretch their real estate dollars farther.

Recently, Lindvest opened up a new townhome collection in the Gracefields master-planned community in Newcastle. With a mix of 37 beautifully designed, classically-styled townhomes (16 rear lane, double-car garage models and 21 traditional towns), The Towns at Gracefields have something for everyone. The community is peaceful and quiet and backs onto forever-green valley lands with fast access to the Highways 401 and 115.

These stylish homes feature spacious floorplans ranging from 1,400 to over 2,100 square feet, making them ideal for families. Many of the homes have walkout basements and decks and all are detailed with beautiful interior finishes.

The Newcastle lifestyle offers the perfect combination of urban and country living with all the conveniences that families need and want set amidst beautiful nature. This exceptional lifestyle can be yours from the high $400,000s.

Lindvest is a Toronto-based real estate development group with deep roots, spanning six decades in the award-winning, highly-reputed H&R family of companies. Coming later in 2018, Lindvest will be introducing two new projects.

North Oakville features a stunning collection of singles in a beautiful master-planned community in prestigious Oakville. Klein Estates offers superb detached estate homes at Pine Valley Drive and Teston Road. This spectacular collection of traditional and contemporary homes is surrounded by lush greenery and forever views just minutes to Highways 407 and 400.

LOCAL FOCUS: Clarington

by Gale Beeby

Bowmanville, Courtice & Newcastle

LIVING HISTORY

Clarington is the most easterly municipality in the GTA, located along the north shore of Lake Ontario. It is the amalgamation of the former townships of Darlington, Clarke, Bowmanville, the Village of Newcastle and the Village of Orono, as well as a number of rural villages, some of which are Bond Head, Enniskillen, Hampton, Kendal, Maple Grove, Mitchell Corners, New Park, Newtonville, Port Darlington, Port Granby, Salem, Starkville, Taunton and Wilmot Creek.

There are heritage buildings and structures scattered throughout the rural countryside and in clusters of heritage homes within the towns and hamlets. But Clarington is full of new housing tracts and condominium buildings in the denser areas.

LEISURE PURSUITS

The Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (formerly Mosport International Raceway) in Bowmanville hosts both minor grand prix races and major racing events. Clarington is home to five Christmas parades, more than any other municipality in Canada. The parades are held in Bowmanville, Newcastle, Courtice, Orono, and Enniskillen/Tyrone. Docville Wild West Park is a mock Wild West town that offers tours and is also used as a film set. Bowmanville is also home to Camp 30, a POW camp for German troops during the Second World War and the last surviving POW camp in Canada.

PARKS & REC

The largest park in the area is the Darlington Provincial Park, located south of Highway 401 near Courtice. The park borders the shore of Lake Ontario and McLaughlin Bay, which is shallow and was closed off from the lake sometime in the 1990s by natural wave action. It offers lots of recreational activities, including camping, picnic facilities, nature trails and a long strip of sandy beach.

The Samuel Wilmot Nature Area in Newcastle is a 77-hectare park that contains trails, viewing platforms and interpretive signs. The Port of Newcastle Park offers spectacular view of the lake from its kilometre of paved trail located on the top of a bluff.

Clarington also offers a large range of recreational facilities at its many parks. There are a host of country-style fairs in many of the rural communities that make up Clarington including AppleFest in Bowmanville, the annual Orono Fair — one of the oldest fairs in Ontario — every September, the BluesBERRY Festival in Bowmanville, which celebrates the best of blues music and fresh berries, and the Wooden Boat Festival at the Port of Newcastle Marina.

RETAIL THERAPY

The small towns and hamlets that make up Clarington are full of lovely boutiques, cafés, bistros, gift and craft shops and, of course, there are plenty of farmers’ markets. Although the area doesn’t have a large indoor shopping mall, you don’t have to go far to fulfill your need to shop until you drop; there are great indoor malls and big box stores in Oshawa and, a little further afield, Peterborough.

EASY ACCESS

Highway 401 runs throughout the region, with Highway 35 and Highway 115 bisecting Newcastle and taking commuters north into cottage country. Durham Region Transit offers some bus routes throughout Clarington, taking commuters west, and GO Transit offers train and bus service in and out of the region.

Population: 92,100

Making dreams a reality

A home is a place of comfort where you can dream and plan your future. Where do you want to be in 10 years? What’s on your bucket list? What opportunities do you want for your children? A home is the place where stability allows these dreams to become reality.

In the past year, Lindvest has focused on what it does best: build homes. In that process they are helping new homeowners create the foundation on which to build their dreams. This job isn’t taken lightly. It’s the expert, thoughtful touches that Lindvest adds to its homes that set the company apart from the rest. The goal is to create homes that embody the Lindvest tagline: “Life Happens Here.”

Across the GTA and beyond, Lindvest has been busy building single detached homes, townhomes, and highrise living spaces, offering something for everyone whether they are just entering the market or looking to move to a larger home.

For instance, the single-detached homes of Spring Valley Junction have enabled new connections in Brampton, where this new community aimed to create the harmony of home, family and community. The fusion of traditional brick, combination brick and stone, and eye-catching contemporary designs are now the homes of families who saw their dream homes go from rendering to reality. Now they sit in front of natural gas fireplaces in their open interiors and wonder how they ever lived any other way.

CAPTION: The Brownstones at Westown

The Brownstones at Westown — located at Weston Road and Sheppard Avenue — offer modern stacked townhouse living, easily accessible by Toronto’s major highways. With construction completed on Phase I of the project, homeowners are now living in contemporary interiors of the one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans. Outside, the streets are lined with newly-planted trees — it’s easy to envision future generations playfully climbing them, dreaming of worlds beyond.

Further east, the rarefied dreams of Sonic and SuperSonic, Lindvest’s highrise project, are becoming a reality as ground has broken, making way for the buildings to reach the sky. Across the street, the Eglinton Crosstown LRT station is under construction and will be ready to whisk commuters across the city and beyond soon enough. Imagine experiencing soaring views of the city skyline as you enjoy dinner on a private balcony and discuss the itinerary of your next big vacation.

CAPTION: The Grove

Richmond Hill is home to a new community full of charm and sophistication: The Grove. Now sold out, this community is a perfect blend of thoughtful layouts and high-end detail — the pinnacle of style. These single-detached homes are what dreams are made of.

Over in Markham, the first phase of the Grand Cornell Brownstones are nearly completed. These unique stacked units use space to the maximum, where sleek, stylish interiors make a statement that is modern and sophisticated. From the outside, stylized details create a sense of depth making for impressive exteriors, the essence of curb appeal. Most units of the Grand Cornell Brownstones feature private patios, balconies or rooftop terraces that provide a personal experience with the outdoors. Dreaming big is simple when you have your own space to do it. The Grand Cornell Brownstones remind you — ain’t life grand?

For anyone with visions of living in the country, the community of Gracefields is a modern addition to the pastoral charm of the town of Newcastle. These bungalow to two-storey homes help families plant roots and lay the foundation for the future. Plus, the recently added community of Gracefields North means the spirit of Newcastle will be elevated even more. Just off Highway 401 but seemingly miles from the hustle and bustle, Newcastle is a gem in the country.

CAPTION: North Oakville

What’s happening in North Oakville? A lot. At Lindvest’s upcoming release, aptly called North Oakville, the future is looking towards contemporary and traditional elevations of 36-, 38-, 41-, 43- and 45-foot single-detached homes. The surrounding area is rife with new builds, making this growing community destined to be the next hotspot in Oakville. North Oakville will be located on the east side of Sixth Line, between Dundas and Burnhamthorpe.

CAPTION: Aurora Glen

The future will also see the final release of the Aurora Glen Townhomes, a project that continues to garner attention from near and far. As with the previous releases of Aurora Glen, these townhomes have the advantage of coming with a smart thermostat, intelligent locks and LED lighting that is not only budget-conscious but is safe on artwork. As the last major release for this project, the Aurora Glen Townhomes have the benefit of being surrounded by already-completed homes — the foundation of an existing community at your doorstep.

Want to know a secret? Aurora Glen has been keeping something close to its chest. It will be releasing 11 exclusive townhomes in a very special area of the Aurora Glen project, surrounded by nature. Known as The Enclave, this cache of best-in-class townhomes will spare no expense. Talk about dream homes!

Keep your ears to the ground as the official announcement of Lindvest’s next community is soon to come. This single family home community is located at Teston Road and Pine Valley Drive in Vaughan. Beautiful homes in a beautiful location — yet again, Lindvest is helping to make dreams a reality.

No dream is too big. You just need support and stability — and that’s where Lindvest comes in. So let your imagination run wild. Dream bold. Dream big. Let Lindvest take care of the rest.
