With rising home prices and lower supply across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the city of Hamilton has become a red-hot real estate market for new low-rise residential homes. One of the area’s newest and much anticipated community is Explore Towns by Branthaven Homes and Ballantry Homes. The master-planned community is set to launch sales in early 2017, but prospective homebuyers can register online today for the latest updates.

Nestled at the base of the Niagara Escarpment, Explore is close to a wealth of amenities that cater to an active lifestyle. Directly across the street from the community is the Sir Wilfrid Laurier Recreation Centre which offers gym facilities, swimming activities and water fitness classes. The Heritage Green Sports Park is also nearby with three full sports fields, as well as the King’s Forest Golf Course, rated as one of the top 100 courses in Canada by SCOREGolf Magazine.

ExploreTowns_Site Outdoor enthusiasts will benefit from numerous parks and green spaces from the existing Red Hill Valley Trails with links to the Bruce Trail to breathtaking scenic vistas and renowned waterfalls, including Albion Falls and the Devil’s Punch Bowl. After exploring all the nearby natural amenities, residents can hop over to Queenston Road for a cup of coffee, wine and dine at one of the many local restaurants or indulge in a relaxing spa.

“The Explore community is perfect for everyone aspiring to live a quality, outdoor active lifestyle in a highly sought-after, but still affordable location,” said Mark Lawrence, Sales and Marketing Manager for Ballantry Homes. “Explore is unlike any other new home community in the region. It offers attainable new home living in an established community designed around a rare escarpment setting.”

Priced from the $400,000s, the homes at Explore are designed to suit all lifestyles and budgets. Featuring a range of townhome and semi-detached designs, the award-winning homes boast classic-contemporary exteriors and spacious living spaces with plenty of upgraded features and finishes.

“With prices starting from the $400’s, these are a great choice for first time and move-up buyers alike,” said Kristen Bellamy, Marketing Manager at Branthaven Homes. “We are seeing a lot of people moving West from the GTA to communities like Explore for its extraordinary value.”

Since launching registrations last summer, Explore has seen a tremendous amount of interest from homebuyers looking for affordable townhome living combined with a convenient location. As a result, many have already registered online to stay informed on opening dates and exclusive offers.

“We are finding many single and newly married young professionals are attracted to and investing in Hamilton,” said Lawrence. “These well-designed homes are an attractive and affordable way to get into the housing market.”
