Silvergate Homes is redefining Niagara living

For more than 35 years, Silvergate Homes has excelled in new-home building in Niagara. Owned and operated by two generations of the Passero family, Silvergate has carefully nurtured a reputation for exceptional quality and a commitment to customer service.

This underlying philosophy hasn’t changed since day one, and Silvergate is now getting noticed well beyond the local new home market. Its two flagship communities, Legends on the Green and Village on the Twelve, are attracting the attention of a growing number of homebuyers from the GTA who are seeking value and luxury in Niagara.

Legendary living in Niagara Falls

An Energy Star-certified contemporary bungalow townhome community, Legends on the Green offers luxury living and architectural elegance. Backing onto the outstanding Legends on the Niagara championship golf course, this rare enclave community of 58 upscale bungalow towns is located in the charming village of Chippawa along the Niagara River.

“We’re extremely proud of Legends on the Green,” says John Passero, president of Silvergate Homes. “The location is second-to-none with its secluded backdrop along the golf course, yet it’s just minutes away from all the amenities Niagara Falls has to offer.”

The architecturally-controlled exteriors at Legends are extraordinary, with a stylish fusion of dark siding, stone and modern brick. Interior layouts and finishes exude luxury, with designer kitchens, spa-like ensuites and spacious living areas.

On the banks of the ’12’

Overlooking a beautiful ravine along the banks of St. Catharines’ historic Twelve Mile Creek is one of Silvergate’s most luxurious releases to date. The sixth phase of Village on the Twelve is a limited collection of two-storey and bungalow urban townhomes.

These homes offer upscale, sophisticated and modern design; architecturally-controlled exteriors to ensure aesthetic beauty and balance within the Village on the Twelve community. Clean lines, numerous windows for bright interiors, innovative floorplans and contemporary styling elevate this collection of stunning homes.

It’s a secluded oasis in one of the city’s most prestigious areas, a rare opportunity in what is considered “Niagara’s Urban Hub.” Village on the Twelve residents are just a short five-minute drive away from the downtown, which offers premier dining, a new performing arts centre and the Meridian Centre sports and spectator facility. St. Catharines is indeed getting noticed, having welcomed world-class acts in recent years, including Elton John, John Mellencamp and The Tragically Hip, to name a few.

Niagara’s growing allure

Real estate in the Niagara Region is booming as buyers from the GTA look to escape an overheated metropolitan market. It’s a perfect place to downsize while locking in exceptional value. GTA sellers can upscale their comfort and luxury, while achieving considerable savings.

Both Legends on the Green and Village on the Twelve are ideal home bases for enjoying some of Niagara’s top amenities. The area caters to millions of visitors every year, so when it comes to conveniences, comforts and hospitality, the Niagara Region’s population of approximately 450,000 punches well above its weight. The options are truly unsurpassed:

  • 88 award-winning wineries nearby including Trius, Wayne Gretzky, Jackson Triggs, Stratus, Peller Estates and Inniskillin
  • More of a beer fan? No need to worry, as Niagara’s Ale Trail offers craft breweries to tempt your palate, including Oast House & Silversmith
  • Hundreds of kilometres of hiking and biking trails to explore
  • Two casinos and the Fort Erie Racetrack, acclaimed as Canada’s prettiest
  • A golfer’s paradise, with nearly 50 courses to choose
  • A foodies delight; from farm-to-table to fine Fallsview dining, there is something for everyone
  • Enjoy Niagara’s plentiful harvests at one of several local farmer’s markets
  • Buffalo and Western New York are easy to get to, opening up a whole new world of shopping, dining, entertainment and professional sports

Better built by Silvergate Homes

The other common theme uniting the two communities is Silvergate’s top-notch reputation. When you select a Silvergate home, you’re selecting a better built home. This includes superior craftsmanship, materials, architecture and design, not to mention personalized customer service that is committed to helping you realize your dream home.

Silvergate Homes is an award-winning, Tarion Warranty builder and RenoMark contractor for a reason, with more than 30 builder awards for excellence, design, marketing and environmental stewardship. Its homes are invariably built to exceed provincial building code standards. Silvergate is also a pioneer in Niagara when it comes to Green building, firmly dedicated to building energy-friendly new homes through eco-friendly practices and technologies.
