blueberry hill

For house-hunters looking for a family-friendly place to live, Blueberry Hill by Fusion Homes offers spacious homes in a amenity-rich corner of Guelph.

Situated at Victoria Road North and Grange Road, the 127-unit enclave features plenty of choice, with walkup models on spacious 30 and 40 foot lots as well as semi-detached models.

While residents will be able to easily kick around a soccer ball with their kids in the yard or set up a basketball net on the driveway, there are plenty of options to say active and engaged close by. Here’s a roundup of just a small sampling of the local amenities young families will appreciate:

Skate time

Guelph has a great tradition of maintaining small, locally-run rinks. Just north of Blueberry Hill at Carter Park, there’s a natural ice rink that’s maintained by neighbourhood volunteers. This year it has stayed open well until March.

Book it

Blueberry Hill is situated between two branches of the Guelph Public Library, the 100 Norfolk Street location and the 1 Starwood Drive branch. It’s the perfect place for children to pick up their favourite books, meet up with study groups, get homework help or take part in the one of the library’s many events.

Splash, play and explore

The green space is outfitted with everything a kid could want. There’s a splash pad for hotter days, a children’s play area, basketball courts, picnic areas, volleyball courts and a whole lot more. There are also a number of picnic areas and trails for just enjoying the natural world.

Fun and fit

Just down the street from the Fusion Homes project is Bulldog Interactive Fitness, a facility designed for youth from the age of three to the teen years. When it gets too cold to stay active, consider the space where self-esteem and well-being is the main focus. It even has summer camps if you’re looking for something for the young ones to do over the holidays.

Coffee and cool treats

Keeping up with kids can be a challenge. Why not treat your self at the local neighbourhood cafe, Planet Bean? Indulge in an espresso and treat your kids to gelato when the weather turns warm. The neighbourhood hot spot has been in business since 1997 and is just down the street.

Blueberry Hill is a popular new community with picturesque views of Guelph. Already over 75 per cent sold out, floorplans range from 1,180 to 2,930 square feet. The interiors come equipped with textured, California ceilings, luxurious soaker tubs in all the baths and custom cabinetry in the kitchens. Visit the sales centre at  329 Grange Road for a better sense of the project.

Residences start from $308,900.
