Branthaven Homes held an exclusive VIP sales event for pre-registrants last weekend for its highly anticipated Lake House Towns and Condos development. BuzzBuzzHome News was on the scene in Grimsby to check out all the action.

The response from potential buyers was overwhelming as people of all ages came out in droves with some even camping out overnight for their chance at lakeside living.

“It’s been unbelievable,” said Steve Stipsits, President of Branthaven Homes. “This has to be one of our most successful launches of any site in our 45-year history.”


In addition to food trucks, popcorn and children’s entertainment, guests were able to tour the presentation centre and model suite while enjoying the magnificent views of Lake Ontario.


Located at 480 Winston Road in Grimsby, Lake House Towns and Condos is a 17.5 acre master-planned community consisting of two mid rise condominiums and a collection of coastal-inspired townhomes.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us to get 2,000 feet of frontage on the lake and build an entire community,” said Stipsits. “We’ve got something for everybody from condo units with their own pool and amenity spaces, to townhome units available in many different sizes and configurations.”


The homes are surrounded by plenty of green spaces, lakefront trails and even a proposed beach.

“There’s a park that extends across the entire front of the community, a waterfront trail, and we’re building a sand beach right in Lake Ontario,” said Stipsits. “So you’ve got tons of options for recreational activities like running, biking, rollerblading, and even a sand beach.”


The two six-storey boutique condominiums boast charming architecture featuring a mix of brick, wood and glass and are surrounded by landscaped walkways and tree-lined streets.

The suites are available in several functional layouts with contemporary kitchens, hotel-inspired bathrooms, and spacious balconies to enjoy the panoramic views of the lake or escarpment.


The Gulf Shore IX is the on-site model suite and offers 685 square feet of living space. The floorplan features a spacious U-shaped kitchen, a large bedroom with walk-in closet, and a cozy and functional den off of the foyer. A large balcony at the rear of the home completes the layout and provides ample room for outdoor entertainment.


Residents of the condos will have access to a wealth of amenities including an elegant lobby and lounge area finished in rich natural wood and stone, as well as a resort-style outdoor pool area with lounge chairs and gazebos. Other amenities include a billiards room, private dining area with catering kitchen, an outdoor terrace, and a well-equipped fitness room.

Two- and three-storey townhomes are also available and are offered in three distinct collections. Inspired by the coastal architecture of the Hamptons and Nantucket, the homes feature large panoramic windows, glass balconies, and charming architectural details like textured cedar shake profiles and cupolas.


Being a Branthaven community, all homes come with the developer’s exclusive Fresh Thinking™ features, finishes and in-suite technology. These built-in bonuses include under-cabinet iPad mounts, pull-out garbage bins and customizable peg organizer drawers.


Lake House is now over 50 per cent sold, but with over 400 units in total, there’s still lots of homes available. Be sure to register online to receive exclusive updates and the latest info on the development!
