GTA house hunters no longer have to choose between established communities and new construction dwellings thanks to Fairground Lofts in Old Woodbridge Village. The Vaughan project by Wycliffe Homes is located just north of Kipling Avenue and Woodbridge Avenue and is grounded in a community with a proud history and plenty of new amenities too.

The residential enclave, made up of a variety of townhomes, is adjacent to the Woodbridge Fairgrounds, the home to the annual Woodbridge Fair. The fall fair is a tradition dating all the way back to 1847. The project is also next door to some beautifully preserved heritage properties, maintaining the area’s connection to its past.

Though the city is growing rapidly, many residents have a long-time love of the community. Some Fairground Lofts buyers have even lived in Woodbridge for decades – among the purchasers, there are event some second and third generation residents of Vaughan. However, the development is appealing to a full-spectrum of home-hunters, drawing everyone from first-time buyers to empty nesters.

Part of the appeal is the project’s urban-country living balance. While the annual country fair may come to town just down the street, the area is also home to Market Lane Shopping Centre, a square full of specialty stores, trendy boutiques and restaurants in downtown Woodbridge. Major highways are close by and by 2016, the community will even have immediate subway access to downtown Toronto.

The community also has a distinctly European flavour with a multitude of Italian restaurants, as well bocce tournaments and the Ontario Soccer Centre (home to the annual Woodbridge Italian Festival). For sporting types, the Board of Trade Country Club and The National Golf Club are also close by.

The project itself reflects this continental vibe with heritage-inspired brick exteriors and an extensive selection of Paris Gallery European-style custom designed cabinets in bathrooms and kitchens. The Villeroy & Boch bathrooms accessories were even imported from Germany.

Home to 67 units, ranging in size from 675 to 1,350 square feet, there’s something for everyone, regardless of their stage in life. Construction is well underway and occupancy is slated for spring 2014.

Available town lofts are priced from $384,900.
