When you think of Niagara, there’s a good chance you think of the falls. While the postcard-perspective is majestic, there’s so much going on the region beyond the typical tourist attractions.
Home buyers are taking note of its hot local food scene, prize-winning wineries, countless options for hiking and camping and, of course, the wealth of new projects that are springing up in just about every nabe and town in the region. It’s a lovely setting for raising a family or down-sizing to a community with a quieter pace of life.
Here are some of new construction homes to consider when checking out all that the Niagara Region has to offer:
Located in the Garden City community by Starward Homes, Heritage Point features a full range of housing styles. Whether you’re looking for a freehold townhouse or a spacious single family home, there are plenty of options to choose from. Plus the St. Catharines residences are quite affordable, with prices starting from $214,900.
It’s hard to compete with the Victorian architecture, quaint streetscapes and charming shops of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Good thing ACK Architects will be designing the 57 condominium townhouses that make up St. Andrews Glen. The well-appointed residences look like a great fit for the community.
Looking for room to raise a family? Consider the picturesque city of Thorold, located on the Niagara Escarpment. Rolling Meadows, by Great Gulf, is located near, parks, schools and walking trails. If you’ve been dreaming of putting down roots in a tight-knit community, this is an excellent choice to consider.
Clearly, there’s something to be said about Thorold! Another project to consider in the city is Gibson Heights, by Rosehaven Homes. Just minutes from St. Catharines and Brock University, the combination of townhouses and houses will put residents in the neighourhood of quaint shops, the historic Welland Canal and many modern amenities too.
Live close to all the fun of the falls at Lyon’s Creek. Located in Niagara Falls-proper, the project is made up of wide bungalows with lofts and freehold towns. Rosehaven Homes is also ensuring that each home will be built to Energy Star specifications if you’re hoping to live in a home with environmentally-friendly features.
Pining for village life? Cannery Park is located just outside historical Niagara-on-the-Lake, in St. Davids. Made up of 235 new homes, the Solmar Development Corp community is just a short drive from the Bruce Trail and an abundance of green space. The elevations are also under strict architectural control to ensure a harmonious look to all the streetscapes.
