Storybrook by Sorbara Group of Companies
The town of Fergus is a beautiful town, filled with historical charm and modern convenience. When designing the Belsyde at Storybrook, a master-planned community of 40- and 50-ft. homes and townhomes, the builder, Sorbara, was thinking of how a family would live while loving country life but still perhaps commuting to the neighbouring cities of Guelph and Brampton. The builder thought this family would appreciate a home filled with comfort, charm and lasting beauty… something special to come home to. The style of fixtures, finishes, and furnishings are timeless, not trendy, to evoke comfort and offer colour, because life at Storybook is not restrained, or neutral; it’s charming and serene, but never colourless.
