Located in the heart of the Niagara region, Legacy by Empire Communities is a sought-after master-planned community of more than 1,000 new townhomes and detached homes. Since launching in the fall of 2017, Legacy has seen roads, hydro lines, street lights and fire hydrants installed and many of the homes in Phase 1 are already well underway.


The development is now set to celebrate its next milestone with the opening of four brand new model homes at an open house this Saturday, January 26th. Prospective homebuyers can visit the sales centre at 1161 Kottmeier Road between 1pm and 5pm to tour the homes, gain design inspiration and check out the ongoing construction progress within the community. Plus, everyone who visits will be entered to win a $250 gift basket!

Empire partnered with renowned interior design firm Figure 3 who has created four unique interior themes to help purchasers envision their future homes.


The first home is the 2,306-square-foot Vibrant Corner model on a 36-foot lot. Designed in a shabby chic style, the home features an eclectic mix of antique decor accents, intricate light fixtures and wood furniture. The four bedroom home is a corner model with a side entrance and wraparound porch. The layout features a functional U-shaped kitchen, great room with plenty of natural light and convenient second-floor laundry.


The 2,606-square-foot Enchant is also from the 36-foot collection and features a sunken foyer, an expansive living/dining room and four large bedrooms. Outfitted in an industrial ranch-style, the model home has a loft-like feel with high ceilings, wide-plank floors and touches of wrought-iron. Situated between the first and second floors, the stunning family room includes access to a covered balcony and is furnished with elegant brown leather sofas and modern farm-inspired furniture and accessories.


At the rear of the home is a spacious kitchen with island and breakfast area characterized by rich woods, open shelves and a large-scale dining table surrounded by metal chairs.


Staying true to its name, the interior of the 1,908-square-foot Tranquil model is designed in a modern Scandinavian theme that embraces cozy comfort, simplicity and functionality. The thoughtfully-designed floorplan has large picture windows allowing for plenty of natural light to shine through.


Mixed with light-coloured hardwood floors, furniture and natural materials, the home is bright, airy and a true representation of the hygge way of life.


Prospective homebuyers looking for more space will love the open concept layout of the 3,483-square-foot Gloucester model. Perfect for growing families, the home offers four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, an expansive great room and a cozy den space that can be used as a home office. The team at Figure 3 went with a Manor Estate aesthetic using dark hardwood floors, elegant furniture in muted tones and a calming gray paint scheme. Providing a pop of contrast is a deep mustard yellow dining set complemented with gold-finished statement lighting in the kitchen and breakfast area.


Upstairs you’ll find three secondary bedrooms each with its own walk-in closet, ensuite or Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The master retreat spans the entire rear of the home and is accessed through a pair of double doors. Once inside, a second set of double doors reveal a large walk-in closet that can be outfitted with a central island.


At the end of the day, homeowners can escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life while soaking in the deep standalone tub. The spa-like ensuite also includes a stand-up shower, an optional double vanity and a separate water closet.


Homes at Empire Legacy start from the low $600,000s. To learn more about the community and to see the model homes for yourself, be sure to visit this weekend’s open house at 1161 Kottmeier Road starting at 1pm.
