With the GO Train offering a short 37-minute commute from Pickering to Union Station and a four-minute walk to the Lake, Frenchman’s Bay is set to attract the Toronto professional looking for affordable lakeside living with all of the area’s conveniences, including quick access to Highway 401, great restaurants and shops in Nautical Village along Liverpool Road. The low-rise community is Madison Group’s latest development and will consist of an exclusive collection of townhomes and detached singles with thoughtfully-designed floorplans, contemporary architecture and modern features and finishes.

To get a closer look, Madison has released a virtual walk-through of the Wharf model home, allowing viewers to step inside and experience the spacious layout and designer finishes.

The two-storey single family home sports a sleek exterior design characterized by a stone and brick facade and punctuated by large picture windows. A glass double-door entryway leads into a spacious foyer with a powder room and closet tucked away on one side.

The open concept layout provides for clear sightlines through the expansive living and dining room areas all the way to the rear of the home. There, you’ll find a gourmet kitchen overlooking a bright breakfast nook and family room with a gas fireplace. The kitchen comes complete with a centre island and breakfast bar, a walk-in pantry and custom cabinetry. Those who prefer a more open space can opt to remove the walk-in pantry and extend the island instead.


The second storey’s welcoming sleeping quarters offers a quiet respite from the day’s hectic activities with generously-sized bedrooms, spacious closets and luxurious ensuites. The master bedroom is truly a retreat and boasts two walk-in closets and a luxurious five-piece ensuite with a double vanity, stand-up shower and soaker tub. The secondary bedrooms are ideal for families and include access to either a private ensuite or a jack-and-jill bath. A convenient laundry room rounds out the second floor, featuring a laundry tub and optional cabinets for additional storage.


Located at 747 Liverpool Road, residents of Frenchman’s Bay will be minutes from a spectacular array of local amenities and attractions. Pickering’s Main Central Library, City Hall and Recreational Complex are all a short drive away and offer classes and programming for all ages.


At the foot of Liverpool Road is Nautical Village, where you’ll find row upon row of charming cafes, boutique shops and fine dining establishments. The popular tourist destination is adjacent to Millennium Square, a public space next to Beachfront Park that’s often used for open-air concerts and other family-friendly activities during the summer months.


Of course, the project’s namesake is also within proximity and includes protected wetlands, an elevated boardwalk and a 200 slip marina that can accommodate both sailboats and powerboats. The scenic bay is also surrounded by walking trails such as the First Nations Trail, which runs from the Rouge River to the west shore of Frenchman’s Bay, the Monarch Trail, which circles Frenchman’s Bay, and the Peak Trail, which runs eastward toward the Ajax border.

To learn more about Frenchman’s Bay visit the presentation centre located at 1635 Bayly Street in Pickering. Hours are Monday to Thursday from 12pm to 7pm, Friday by appointment and weekends from 11am to 6pm.
