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.

Towns at Gracefields

Located at 2225 Rudell Road, Newcastle, the Sales Centre is open Monday to Wednesday from 1 to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; closed Thursday, Friday and holidays.

For variety and location, Mattamy is right in your neighbourhood

Spring is a time of renewal. Nature is blooming. The sun is shining more often. The days are longer and warmer so it’s a perfect time to go searching for a new home. Where to begin?

Mattamy Homes is a great place to start. Whether you are searching for your very first home, or you need a larger home for a growing family, Mattamy can make the search very rewarding.

Since Mattamy built their first home in 1978, they have continuously brought innovation and architectural excellence to every home they build. Many of their communities are master-planned so families always have places to gather, playgrounds to visit and schools to attend within walking distance. Some communities also feature community centres, retail stores, ponds in the summer and skating rinks in the winter. Mattamy believes the community and your home should all be connected to create an enjoyable living experience.

A Mattamy community looks and feels different than other places. There are fewer homes per street so you don’t feel like you’re living in a cookie cutter environment. And the homes are offered in a variety of styles so each street has distinct character. Mattamy has always been an innovator in home design creating environments that simply make you feel right at home the instant you move in. They understand that open space allows for more fluid, free-flowing interaction.

Mattamy offers more choice in both exterior and interior finishes, so you can ensure the home you are buying is the home you always dreamed of. To personalize your home, Mattamy offers Architect’s Choice Options, which give homeowners an opportunity to make pre-approved structural changes before construction begins. These options are fully integrated into the home while under construction so you have the satisfaction of knowing that the home will be completely finished the way you want before you move in.

Mattamy’s state-of-the art Design Studios give their homeowners the choice to select every interior finish in your home. From granite countertops, backsplashes to trend-setting light fixtures, you will not be disappointed.

Mattamy Homes is the largest privately-owned homebuilder in North America with a 40-year history of operations across the United States and Canada. Every year, Mattamy helps 7,000 families realize their dream of homeownership. In the United States, the company is represented in 10 markets – Charlotte, Raleigh- Durham, Phoenix, Tucson, Jacksonville, Orlando (where its U.S. head office is located), Tampa, Sarasota, Naples and Southeast Florida. And in Canada, those communities stretch across the Greater Toronto Area, as well as in Ottawa, Calgary and Edmonton.

Mattamy has won numerous awards for community planning and home design including an unprecedented seven-time winner of the Homebuilder of the Year Award in the GTA.

No matter what you want from a new home, Mattamy has what you’re looking for from a stylish condo or townhome to a luxury detached home. A Mattamy home is a home you’ll value for a lifetime.

You’ll find a Mattamy community anywhere you want to live throughout the GTA.

Have a great spring and happy home hunting.

Moving on up

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.

North Oakville
North Oakville

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.

Ground has broken on Lindvest’s highrise projects, Sonic and SuperSonic, making way for the buildings to reach the sky. Across the street, the Eglinton Crosstown LRT is under construction and will soon be ready to whisk commuters across the city and beyond.

Brownstones at Westown

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. Most units of the Grand Cornell Brownstones feature private patios, balconies or rooftop terraces that provide a personal experience with the outdoors.

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. The recently added community of Gracefields North means the area will be elevated even more. Just off Highway 401 but seemingly miles from the hustle and bustle, Newcastle is a gem in the country.

At Lindvest’s upcoming release, North Oakville, the future is looking towards contemporary and traditional elevations of 36-, 38-, 41-, 43- and 45-foot single detached homes. North Oakville will be located on the east side of 6th Line, between Dundas Street and Burnhamthorpe Road.

The future will also see the final release of the Aurora Glen Townhomes take shape as these homes are already under construction. 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.

There is something else Aurora Glen has been keeping something close to the vest. 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. Be sure to visit Lindvest.com to show your interest.

Keep your ears to the ground as the official announcement of Lindvest’s next community is soon to come. This single detached 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.

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.

The Preserve in Oakville is expanding with new towns and detached homes

Yes, you read that correctly: Mattamy Homes — 2017’s BILD Builder of the Year — is adding new townhomes and detached homes to The Preserve, its prestigious master-planned community in Oakville.

Situated alongside all that makes Oakville the most desired address in Ontario, living in The Preserve means a life of endless possibilities. Picturesque parks, renowned schools, fantastic shopping and much more will always be just a short trip from your doorstep. But with these homes featuring such luxurious interiors, leaving will never be easy.

These additions will be located in the northern pocket of The Preserve. Beautifully nestled next to a mature tree line, it’s easy to see why current residents have fallen in love with the area. And with these new releases being built using the same exterior elevation designs, as well as newer contemporary-style elevations, that love isn’t likely to fade.

Ranging from 1,583 to 5,453 square feet, and available in a variety of different models and floorplans, The Preserve contains the perfect home for every stage of life. Buyers will be able to choose from freehold rear lane and two-storey townhomes, Mattamy’s 50-foot detached Estate Collection — their most upscale offering to date — as well as a number of other variations. And thanks to the builder’s state-of-the-art Design Studio, buyers will also be able to choose and customize nearly every aspect of their new home’s stunning interior.

Mattamy has always been committed to building homes through thoughtful design and nowhere is this more apparent than in The Preserve. From perfectly designed kitchens, to cozy window nooks, your new home will be as practical as it is beautiful.

Living in The Preserve means living with the best of Oakville at your doorstep. Outdoor enthusiasts will love the web of hiking trails just beyond their backyard, as well as the fact that Bronte Provincial Park is only a 10-minute drive away. Shoppers will rejoice, too, as Oakville Place Mall is just a short trip down Trafalgar Road and the high-end boutiques of Oakville’s famous downtown only a few minutes further. And with delectable restaurants seemingly at every intersection, your inner foodie will always be satisfied.

With The Preserve being a Mattamy master-planned community, homeowners can expect the necessities of modern life to always be nearby. This means parks, grocery stores, community centres, schools, the new Oakville hospital and so much more are never further than a quick drive away.

It’s clear Mattamy has utilized all the experience it’s gained from building over 90,000 homes across North America into making The Preserve one of its premier communities. But coming from a company that’s called Oakville home for over 35 years, there’s no reason to have expected anything less.

Designer Touch – Sea-Side Dreams

Latest News


Designer Touch – Sea-Side Dreams

A masterful master bedroom and bath makeover make the most of a lakeside view.

Photography By Stephani Buchman

Nestled among the charms of downtown Oakville, this three-level townhouse boasts picture perfect lakefront views, with sailboats and swans bobbing by daily. The aquatic outdoor scenery became a natural source of interior inspiration, with each room designed to frame the vistas and invite them in. Here’s how we achieved this serene marine esthetic.

The natural place to start was with the home’s colour palette, which organically tended toward the tranquil tones of the sea. In the master bedroom, we opted for gentle cream, grey and seafoam, complementing the outdoor views and welcoming the lakeside life in.

MARINE-INSPIRED SELECTIONS

Every room demands a focal point to anchor the eye. In this master bedroom, it’s the fireplace. To make this a true statement piece and tie it together with the home’s prevailing nautical theme, we faced it with multi-tonal mosaic tile that shimmers in the light, inspired by waves catching the sun. The bed also became a dramatic focal point for the room, with its charcoal-coloured, upholstered and tufted headboard. Positioned on the main wall opposite the fireplace, this large, king-sized headboard brings balance to the room. Underfoot, the hardwood floor was softened and warmed with an oversized custommade area rug, which brings texture and complements the cream-andseafoam colour scheme. The rug is large enough to cover most of the floor’s surface, unifying the sitting area with the sleep zone.

On either side of the fireplace, a pair of mirrored closet doors, accented with oval crystal knobs, bring a much-needed touch of sparkle. The mirrors are as pretty as they are functional, bouncing light and views around the room to make it appear larger than its actual size, while delivering stylish storage space.

NATURAL LIGHT

On the adjacent wall, a bank of windows features a pair of French doors in the centre, flanked by two stationary windows. For privacy and light protection, we installed Hunter Douglas woven shades in a grey-green tone to complement the colour scheme when closed. But with this spectacular view, the shades are usually opened, so we framed the view with decorative pinch-pleated drapes in a soft textured fabric, echoing the prevailing creamand- seafoam colour palette.

SIMPLY LUXURIOUS

Attached to the master bedroom, the ensuite bath follows the same airy esthetic with 12-by-24-inch marble floor tiles that lighten and brighten the space. The luxury continues with the addition of a large steamshower, complete with a rain-shower fixture and wall jets, and heated floors for pampered and toasty toes. A minimalistic custom double vanity with oversized drawers adds simplicity, sensibility and storage space. Above the vanity, we installed an oversized mirror with integrated sconces, for visual interest.

DESIGNER NOTES

This master retreat makeover was part of a much larger home renovation and reorganization. We moved the master bedroom from the third floor to the second, which once housed the family room. We also added some space from an adjoining room and closet in order to create a large master bathroom and master closet. This provided for a more practical layout, putting the two older children on the top floor with two bedrooms and a large adjoining bathroom.

GET THIS LOOK

Think about where you spend your time, and invest space accordingly. Consider re-jigging your floor plan, and don’t be afraid to take some square footage from secondary rooms to create a luxury retreat that dreams are made of!

A cantilevered bench seat of quartz was added as a restful place to relax in the steam shower. A bench like this requires steel supports to ensure stability, so consider this option when planning and framing your shower—not as an afterthought.

To achieve this sophisticated seaside style, we combined varying tones of the same colour palette throughout the home. The visual interest comes via the use of contrast. Varying shades of creams, greys and greens, and their combination of light and dark, bring warmth and drama to the space.

SOURCES BATHROOM FLOOR & SHOWER TILE: Ciot; VANITY, MIRROR: custom by Kate + Co; PLUMBING FIXTURES: Watermarks; VANITY SCONCES: Restoration Hardware; BATH WALL PAINT: Lacey Pearl 2108-70 Benjamin Moore; BEDROOM MASTER BEDROOM PAINT: Sea Salt CSP-95 Benjamin Moore; KING BED, DRAPERIES: custom through Kate + Co; CUSTOM AREA RUG, ACCENT CHAIR, NIGHTSTANDS: Cocoon Furnishings; BENCH SEAT: Colette Bench by Crate & Barrel; ACCENT TABLE: Casalife; BLINDS: Hunter Douglas

Remington communities share innovative home designs, superior craftsmanship and unparalleled service. This is why so many new home purchasers consider Remington Homes to be among the very best homebuilders in the GTA.

What distinguishes Remington is their commitment to functional home designs and their reputation for constructing exceptional communities in amenity-rich locations. These two factors have been the hallmark of their success from the very beginning. But this is not the only thing that makes Remington Homes the builder of choice for so many. The company provides award-winning customer service that gives homeowners extra peace of mind from purchase to move-in and beyond. Remington recognizes that happy homeowners build great communities.

The company has grown to include extensive residential, retail, commercial and condominium developments. Presently, the company has many fine communities at various stages of sales and construction.

THE BRIGHTSIDE

Remington Homes is getting ready to launch its newest community, The Brightside in Brampton. The Brightside is a family community within the beautiful Mayfield Village neighbourhood. Here Remington is building a spectacular collection of towns, semis and singles on 32-, 38- and 43-foot lots.

This perfect setting, located at Countryside Drive and Bramalea Road, is surrounded by glorious nature and is close to all of the conveniences of Brampton. Here homeowners will enjoy beautiful parks, fabulous places to hike, bike, skate, swim and explore as well as shop and dine. Excellent schools and a wonderful selection of cultural amenities make The Brightside in Brampton the perfect new community. The Brightside joins an illustrious group of prime communities developed by Remington Homes.

DOWNTOWN MARKHAM

Located in the heart of Markham Centre, Remington’s Downtown Markham is expected to be the largest collection of LEED-certified buildings in North America. When completed, the community will include 15,000 residents, 3.4 million square feet of premium office space and 2 million square feet of retail.

Part of this incredible community is a $25 million public art program spearheaded by The Remington Group. The signature piece of the collection is the Pride of Canada Carousel, which features 44 rideable sculptures made by Canadian artist Patrick Amiot. Each piece is cleverly crafted from reclaimed materials as a tribute to Canada and a nod to sustainability.

CAPTAIN’S COVE

Remington Homes’ Captain’s Cove in Midland is a community of 50- and 75-foot bungalows along the shores of Georgian Bay. Here residents can escape the hustle and bustle of big city life filled with traffic and noise.

Captain’s Cove offers a relaxed, serene vacation lifestyle with four seasons of stimulating activity. From boating, swimming, walking and birding in the summer to cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and community sports in the winter. Captain’s Cove’s will soon be releasing a new phase of charming bungalows in this picturesque waterside community.

THE PRESERVE

Remington will soon be releasing an outstanding collection of 45- and 50-foot detached home lots in Oakville’s highly sought-after Preserve community. When Remington Homes started developing plans for The Preserve, it was an opportunity to take decades of insight and create new home designs that would not only be functional and liveable but also offer 360 degrees of beautiful design. The results reflect the superior quality that defines the Remington brand. The finishes at The Preserve provide a level of luxury that sets these homes apart.

HELLO GEORGETOWN

Hello Georgetown, Remington Homes’ family-friendly community in Georgetown builds on the company’ long history of home building in this ever-growing neighbourhood.

Remington is getting ready to release their next collection of 40-foot detached homes this fall. The first two phases of this popular community sold out quickly and given the continued demand, this next release will undoubtedly follow suit.

This magnificent community of estate homes is located in Thornhill’s most desirable neighbourhood off Bathurst Street south of Highway 7.

At 25, Rosehaven is just getting started

At the beginning of Rosehaven Homes’ 25th anniversary year, they vowed this would be its best year yet. With the year only halfway through, the trusted builder looks like it is on track to achieve just that.

Rosehaven could have looked back in pride. After all, since their first community opened in Waterdown in 1992, Rosehaven has built over 6,000 homes in many inspired new home communities all over Southern Ontario. They’ve received numerous awards and been recognized for excellence at the municipal, provincial and federal levels. With one of the highest repeat buyer rates, the builder has proven they build customer satisfaction.

But resting on past achievements is simply not the Rosehaven way. Continually striving for excellence, Rosehaven Homes offers something for everyone. This year’s incredibly successful new releases in Stoney Creek, Ancaster and Brampton are proof that at 25, Rosehaven is just getting started.

Rosehaven launched Phase 2 at On The Ridge in Stony Creek and sold out of all the townhomes over one weekend. These newly designed freehold townhomes were clearly exactly what buyers wanted; terrific, high-quality homes in a vibrant neighbourhood near shopping, dining, entertainment, parks and trails.

The new release of stunning singles, semis and towns at Tiffany Hill in Ancaster also sold out in under a week. Buyers had been eagerly awaiting this new release in a lovely, established, family-friendly neighbourhood, and homes were quickly snapped up.

And to top that off, a new phase of singles and towns was released at The Neighborhoods of Mount Pleasant. This release was also much anticipated and the singles sold out in just a few days.

Rosehaven Homes’ first foray into the Burlington condo market is another triumph. Released in 2016, Affinity West is already the fastest selling midrise in Burlington’s Aldershot neighbourhood. Affinity West is 90 per cent sold and Affinity East just opened, offering new designs and larger suites from one-bedroom up to two-bedroom plus formal dining room, ranging in size from 585 up to 1,272 square feet. The Presentation Centre is located at 348 Plains Road East in Aldershot.

Rosehaven will take a pause to celebrate 25 years of building on July 10. The second half of Rosehaven’s anniversary year gets underway after that and it promises to be equally busy, with a number of new releases coming this fall and late 2017.

Those buyers who missed out on the recent releases will be excited to hear that On The Ridge returns this fall to Stoney Creek. The first launch will be offering freehold towns and semis, and will be followed later in the year with 40- and 35-foot singles.

Tiffany Hill in Ancaster just gets better because everything about this desirable neighborhood has been planned with a sense of community in mind. Rosehaven’s next release will feature 45- and 40-foot singles, freehold towns and condo towns in this “country-chic” community traced with parks and trails, woodlands and waterfalls.

Also coming later this fall is more of what Brampton buyers love at The Neighbourhoods of Mount Pleasant. A new release of singles and towns with stone, brick and stucco exteriors are coming to this popular community of beautiful homes.

With a new highrise condo in the planning stages for Grimsby, new singles and towns coming to North Oakville, a new release coming soon to Anchor Woods in Holland Landing and Dreamfields in Bradford, this is clearly going to be a year to remember for Rosehaven Homes and their delighted new homebuyers.
