Each home style is available in a range of professionally designed exterior colour palettes and showcases recessed front garages that are integrated in the design of the home.

Peterborough and Port Perry

Latest News


Peterborough and Port Perry

Located just 90 minutes northeast of Toronto, Peterborough retains its down-home appeal, while offering an expanse of unspoiled opportunities throughout the Kawarthas.

Peterborough Lift Lock

The Kawarthas Lakes’ region stretches the boundaries of Peterborough, and includes Chemong, Scugog, Pigeon, Rice, Sturgeon, Balsam and Silver Lakes. From mid-spring to late fall, houseboat rentals are a popular holiday mode of transportation, with the Peterborough Lift Lock providing access to the Trent Severn Waterway – one of the most picturesque water route systems in Canada.

Devil’s Elbow ski resort has 14 runs and three terrain parks, and snowshoers can enjoy 8.5 kilometres of trails. Peterborough is also at the heart of Ontario’s network of snowmobile trails.

The Petroglyphs Provincial Park features the largest known collection of Aboriginal carvings. Considered sacred, the sketchings are believed to date back from 900 to 1100 A.D.

The Peterborough Film Festival takes place in late January, Maplefest in March and the Hiawatha Annual Pow Wow in May. Festivals, concerts and studio tours abound throughout the year.

With the eventual opening of Highway 407 in 2020, Peterborough will be even more accessible to the GTA and the Golden Horseshoe.

Port Perry

Closer still is Port Perry, located less than an hour’s drive northeast of Toronto, on the shores of Lake Scugog. As part of Scugog Township, this town has preserved its charming downtown core, which has become a popular tourist attraction, as well as a favourite backdrop for location managers who are looking for the perfect small-town feel for their next movie.

Port Perry waterfront

With the lake at the bottom of the main street, residents enjoy picnics, fishing, boating and lakeside strolls. Close by are conservation areas and The Great Blue Heron Charity Casino. The area boasts a vibrant arts community, as well as local breweries, wineries and a range of dining options.

Port Perry is becoming extremely popular with retirees, and builders are responding with thoughtful housing options. Best of all – Ontario’s Greenbelt legislation restricts new development in the surrounding countryside, which means that the chances of sprawling new subdivisions spoiling the idyllic view are virtually nil.

Y Lofts

Atria Development is committed to building energy efficient buildings both for residents and the good of the larger community

Atria’s existing buildings incorporate cutting edge energy efficient practices and the company continues to seek and implement new technologies in its projects. One such innovation is Enbridge Gas Distributions’ “Savings By Design program” that provides developers and builders with the right kind of encouragement and tools needed to ensure that future buildings will be energy efficient.

Atria has decided to adopt this green energy initiative in its new Y Lofts Project located in downtown Peterborough, Ontario. The Y Lofts project involves the restoration and redevelopment of the historic Peterborough YMCA. This six-storey, 134-unit residential building will include numerous energy performance characteristics such as a green roof, in-unit tri-sorting waste disposal, electrical vehicle charging stations, custom climate control heating/cooling systems, energy efficient glazing, energy star rated appliances, and energy efficient plumbing and lighting fixtures.

Interestingly, Atria participated in a similar “savings by design workshop” put on by Sustainable Building Canada. At the workshop, Atria found that its Y Lofts Project was 24.0 per cent better than that required by the OBC and in fact will end up providing a total reduction in Greenhouse Gas of 68,605 Kg CO2Eq. This energy performance meets and exceeds the target set by the Savings by Design program.

Atria recognizes that these initiatives go well beyond simple cost savings and broader environmental stewardship. The fact is that homebuyers are sophisticated today and prefer to live in energy efficient homes and feel good about their contribution to the planet. Clearly, Enbridge’s Design by Savings Program is the right program at the right time for our world and all builders and developers are encouraged to join in this significant initiative.

The Arbour Condo Villas

The Best in Adult Living comes to Peterborough

Mason Homes recently introduced the Arbour Condo Villas in Peterborough. Located within Parklands, Mason’s master-planned community will offer a limited release of 87 homes in a quiet enclave, including Classic and Courtyard bungalows, as well as bungalows with loft designs.

Recognized as a respected builder in Peterborough, Mason won the Builder of the Year and the Green Builder of the Year awards in 2016 from the Peterborough and Kawartha’s Home Builders’ Association. Mason also won the 2017’s Energy Star® for New Homes Builder of the Year.

Showcasing Mason’s popular Arts and Crafts exterior designs, these exceptional residences will range in size from 1,068 to 2,200 square feet. A variety of interior and exterior design options are available, along with your choice of fine features and finishes throughout.

The Arbour Condo Villas will be set against a backdrop of protected mature woodlands, green spaces, and will include beautiful community parks, ponds and walking trails.

THE COURTYARD COLLECTION

The residences of Mason’s Courtyard Villa Collection are aptly named as they feature a private, outdoor courtyard that’s perfect for relaxing or entertaining, and requires minimal maintenance and upkeep.

Designs in this collection feature rear-laneway, double-car garages that provide direct access from the home via a connector, which also contains a handy mudroom, laundry room and powder room. The positioning of the garage at the the back of the home enhances the interior living space, and allows for full width porches at the front.

THE CLASSIC COLLECTION

Mason Homes’ signature exterior elevations are highlighted on the Classic Collection. These home styles reflect Ontario’s rich architectural heritage.

Wider lots allow for welcoming porches and an abundance of windows at the front and at the rear of the homes. So as not to impose on the front facade, the double-car garages are set back and integrated as part of the overall design. Each home style is available in a range of professionally designed, exterior colour palettes, which augment the community’s charming streetscapes.

THE MASON ADVANTAGE

As with every new home built built by Mason, each one is Mike Holmes Certified and built to Energy Star® standards – saving you up to 20 per cent on your household energy consumption.

Celebrating more than 55 years of excellence in development, design and new home construction, Mason Homes remains one of Ontario’s most successful and forward-thinking new home construction companies.

The designs available at The Arbour Condo Villas are affordable and offer energy saving benefits, along with cutting-edge building materials, and popular features and finishes.
