After a successful preview opening last July, Frenchman’s Bay by Madison Group will officially launch to the public this Saturday, September 23rd at 11am sharp. Prospective homebuyers are invited to visit the presentation centre at 1635 Bayly Street in Pickering where they’ll be able to view the full collection of homes, floorplans and finishes. With the project site located just five minutes away, guests will also be able to experience the area’s beautiful surroundings and proximity to a wealth of local amenities.


Priced from the low $800,000s, the master-planned community will consist of an exclusive collection of contemporary townhomes and detached singles ideal for all types of homebuyers. From young families and move-up buyers to downsizers looking to move closer to local amenities, the exquisitely designed homes combined with a desirable location are sure to be popular.

A total of 67 units will be available including 10 single detached homes, 15 rear lane towns and 42 street towns. Each home has been carefully designed by Flanagan Beresford & Patteson Architects to create a dynamic yet cohesive and welcoming streetscape. The exteriors are clad in stone, brick and stucco and boast a sophisticated and distinctly modern aesthetic. Sleek front doors, garages and oversized windows add the finishing touches.


The interiors by Theresa Pereira of Create Design and Co. boast open concept floorplans with spacious living areas, gourmet kitchens and the latest in features and finishes. The townhomes are available in two distinct collections with conventional Street Towns, ranging in size from 1,910 square feet to 2,155 square feet, and Rear Lane Towns, from 2,172 square feet to 2,215 square feet. All offer private single car garages at grade and generous three- or four-bedroom layouts on three levels.


Those who need a little more space can opt for one of the two-storey, single detached plans which offer 2,700 square feet of living space. Ideal for growing families, the detached homes feature double car garages, four bedrooms, three and a half baths and ample room for entertaining or family get-togethers.

Located steps from the shores of Lake Ontario, the new development is nestled within an established area dotted with mature trees, parklands and well-kept homes. Residents will benefit from a family-friendly neighbourhood within minutes of local services, amenities and the picturesque waterfront.


A short drive north is the Pickering Town Centre, just five minutes from Frenchman’s Bay. Situated near Highway 401, the one million-square-foot shopping centre is a local landmark with over 200 retailers, restaurants and services. The centre is also close to a major transit hub with a direct connection to the Pickering GO Station via a covered pedestrian bridge.

Closer to home, residents will be steps from a public park complete with a playground and basketball courts as well as 12 kilometres of biking and nature trails. Continue south along Liverpool Road and you’ll quickly find row upon row of charming cafes, boutique shops and fine dining establishments.


At the southern tip of the road is Millennium Square, a public square with breathtaking lake views and natural vistas. Millennium Square is also the site of open-air concerts and activities during the summer months. Of course the development’s namesake is also within close proximity and includes nature trails, an elevated boardwalk and a 200 slip marina that can accommodate both sailboats and powerboats.
