Lakeshore Village luxury townhomes in South Etobicoke

Situated on the actual parcel of land where Degrassi High was filmed, the newest townhouse project by Dunpar Homes broke ground at the beginning of October. Located at 68 Daisy Avenue in South Etobicoke, this is the site of the original Vincent Massey Public School – well-known for the filming of the iconic television program. Now this location will become known for Lakeshore Village.

THE EVENT

The groundbreaking event took place on the grounds of the old school. When Dunpar Homes purchased the former public school property, it included an existing daycare facility. Instead of demolishing the building and moving the daycare facility, Dunpar worked closely with both the daycare operator, and the city, in order to preserve the heritage building, as well as the daycare. Vincent Massey Academy is a bustling facility that accommodates more than 200 children. Amber Halcovitch and Katie Cachia, who work for the academy, were on hand to participate in the groundbreaking event.

Dunpar COO, Michael DiPasquale, as well as other Dunpar employees, donned their hard hats and dug in their shovels, alongside David and Mary-Anne Popescu. The Popescus purchased their very first home from Dunpar in 1994 and raised their family there. Now that they are empty nesters, they are looking forward to moving into their brand new home next year at Lakeshore Village.

THE VILLAGE

Located close to Lake Ontario, and with miles of hiking and biking trails nearby, Lakeshore Village is a collection of 73 luxury townhomes. Each home features three bedrooms and includes two-car parking. For outdoor dining, the executive townhomes feature a large deck off of the kitchen, and the back-to-back townhomes come with a 240-square-foot rooftop deck. All townhomes range in size from 1,627 to 1,940 square feet. The community features lush landscaping and all the luxury finishes that Dunpar is known for.

Special touches include gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, lighting under the kitchen cabinets, granite countertops and double sinks. Entering the master bathroom is akin to stepping into your own private spa, which includes a soaker tub and marble vanity countertops.

THE OFFER

Dunpar is offering a generous financing option. Qualified purchasers of a new townhome receive an interest only mortgage at a rate of 2.49 per cent for a period of three years. Best known for quality construction, Dunpar has many repeat customers who move up to new communities based on their lifestyle requirements. Dunpar stands behind their motto – better by design.

Housing Options

Although most of Etobicoke consists of single-family homes – with many grand old mansions along Lake Shore Boulevard – many condo developments have been built along its lakefront near the mouth of the Humber River, especially in the area that used to be known as the “Motel Strip.”

South Etobicoke has many old communities, including Mimico, Long Branch, New Toronto, Islington Village, Markland Woods, Bloordale Gardens, Sunnylea, Alderwood and The Queensway.

Leisure Pursuits

Within the boundaries of South Etobicoke, you will find three golf courses: St. George’s, Islington and Markland Woods. All are private and all are spectacular. But Etobicoke is also home to other exclusive courses, including Lambton and Weston, as well as public courses Royal Woodbine, Scarlett Woods, Centennial Park and Humber Valley.

There are lots of festivals and fairs, including the Etobicoke Lakeshore Mardi Gras in Colonel Samuel Smith Park. Taste of The Kingsway takes place on Bloor Street West every year, with over 30 restaurants serving up delicious food.

During the summer, you’ll find farmers’ markets dotted throughout Etobicoke, the two biggest held on Saturday at the Etobicoke Civic Centre and Friday at Sherway Gardens.

Parks & Rec

Etobicoke has numerous green spaces and large parks, the biggest of which are Centennial Park and the spectacular Colonel Samuel Smith Park, situated on the old asylum grounds and shared with Humber College. Here you will find a fantastic ice-skating trail in the winter that circles around in a figure eight. Here you will also be able to enjoy the scenic hiking trail along a peninsula on Lake Ontario, which provides access to the waterfront and several rocky beaches with views of the Toronto skyline. It’s also a great place for watching wildlife, including over 100 species of birds, waterfowl, turtles and beavers.

The Etobicoke Olympium, which opened in 1976, is a multi-purpose centre for sports and recreation and boasts a 50-metre competitive pool with diving boards, as well as basketball courts, ball hockey and volleyball courts, plus an indoor soccer facility.

Retail Therapy

There are great boutiques, shops, cafés, restaurants and services along all the main avenues, most impressively along Lake Shore Boulevard and Royal York Road. Sherway Gardens is one of the premiere malls in the GTA, which is home to over 200 shops and services, including Sporting Life, Tiffany & Co., Holt Renfrew, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. For more meagre budgets, Cloverdale Mall is sure to fit the bill.

Easy Access

Several highways bisect and surround Etobicoke, including Highways 427, 401, 409 and the QEW. The Bloor-Danforth subway has two stops – at Kipling and Islington – and the TTC has a number of bus and streetcar routes throughout the area. GO Transit also has stations at Mimico and Long Branch, making it easy for commuters to get into downtown.
