The Residences at Pebble Creek – The Ravine
The Residences at Pebble Creek in WoodbridgeLeave a comment

The Residences at Pebble Creek - Rendering  

I’m Erin, and my husband is Dan. I am a law clerk and Dan works in telecommunications in the downtown core. Dan and I are newlyweds and currently renting a single bedroom condominium. The condo is more suited for bachelor living and we need more space for ourselves. Pricing on new downtown locations was outside of our budget so we expanded our search to include the suburbs and Vaughan.

While researching communities in the Woodbridge area I found The Residences at Pebble Creek by Falconcrest Homes. As I researched the area, I was delighted to see that it was set in a naturally forested area and was only moments away from Woodbridge Village. Keeping our commute to the office easy and convenient will be a breeze with the planned expansion of the TTC subway line to Vaughan and the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station. Dan and I visited the sales centre at Pebble Creek and met with Mauro and Jenny of Intercity Realty and looked at the executive townhomes that made up this new exclusive community. Mauro showed us the plans for each unit and helped us find the best fit for our needs. The Ravine was a perfect fit. It is an end unit that offers 2121 square feet of living space (elev. A), three bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms with an option to have the basement finished and a 3rd full bathroom added. Pebble Creek also offers a large variety of optional upgrades to personalize our new home.

Blue in almost every shade imaginable is making an appearance in this year’s holiday decorating palettes. Whether it is a pale calm blue like Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year Serenity with champagne accents or royal blue or turquoise balancing out a metallic theme, we can expect to see all shades making a strong showing this holiday season.

Holiday decorators are embracing a more natural look using slim trees rather than traditional robust full evergreen in 2015. Thinner taller trees also play to a more retro theme of holidays past and give the dramatic height to your room without taking a large piece of valuable entertaining real estate that their chubby counterparts have occupied in past years.
