A new year is upon us, and the Falconcrest Homes team has been busy. With many neighbourhoods nearing completion the new year will focus on landscaping, framing, and moving forward in phases of construction and sales. Here is a look at some of the Falconcrest developments, and where the builders are in the construction.
Winter has arrived, bringing snow and colder temperatures. Although the sun sets earlier in the winter months, and the weather is not always sunny, winter does not need to be the season where your family hunkers down and disappears until spring. Milton, Bowmanville, and Oshawa have many family friendly activities during the winter months to get you and your family out of the house and enjoying what the area has to offer. Here are some winter activities for you and your family in the Milton, Bowmanville, and Oshawa area.
The popularity for townhomes and semi detached units in the Greater Toronto Area has accelerated the number of housing developments Falconcrest Homes is working on. Here is a construction update on two of our latest communities: Pebble Creek and Summervale.
Located in the charming community of Woodbridge, Ontario, Pebble Creek is a new housing plan in the earliest stages of development. The site is currently fully serviced, and the construction of homes has not begun. Upon completion, the community will feature 59 townhomes and 4 semi-detached units in a naturally forested area. Each unit will be finished with heritage style stone and brick exteriors, and a luxurious interior finish. The new community will also feature a park that will be exclusive to its residents, and the naturally forested location will create a quiet, shaded escape from the busy, everyday city life.
Summervale is a new development that will feature elegant homes in the community of Bowmanville, Ontario, just east of Toronto. Construction on these homes started on May 1st, and the plans are well underway for the development of the land. The site will feature 43 townhomes, semi and detached homes, each with elegant exterior finishes and meticulously planned architectural designs. Located very close to schools, walking trails, parks, and shopping, the community will be a family friendly neighbourhood. For commuting, the location is ideal, as it is near highway 2 and the 401, making access to the city effortless. This development is currently in phase I, and Phase II is tentatively planned for early 2018.
Regardless of whether you are a first time home buyer, or are searching for a new oasis to call your own, these two communities are only some of the examples of the many communities Falconcrest Homes is proud to provide to the housing market.
