Spring Into Homeownership At Edgewood

NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO, MARCH 22, 2010 – As Ontario emerges from winter, the Niagara Region is coming to life with vivid spring colour. Amid this scenic area, Edgewood continues to blossom with irresistible residential opportunities for those seeking incredible value in a well-established location. Great Gulf Homes’ multi-award-winning community has proven a huge success, and is already home to hundreds of families. Phase 2 purchasers can choose from two-storey detached homes on 40’ and 50’ lots, plus two styles of bungalows on 50’ lots – all for prices that are up to $200,000 less than in Toronto. The Edgewood lots range up to 130 feet in depth, and some even back onto a stand of mature trees.

In addition to this outstanding value, Edgewood offers one of the best locations in the province, literally across from the Ontario Golf Association-rated Niagara Falls Golf Club, and only minutes from 40 other golf courses. Niagara Falls is in the midst of wine country and offers a wealth of renowned attractions. For commuters, nearby major transportation routes include Highways 58, 420, the QEW and Thorold Stone Road, and Toronto is just 90 minutes away.

Take a drive through Edgewood and you will begin to appreciate just how attractive life is in this community. Plus, you can tour the three model homes and the model home/sales office, which were designed and decorated to appeal to first-time buyers, growing families and empty-nesters. These beautiful homes on 50’ lots will let you experience firsthand the quality, design and craftsmanship for which multi-award-winning Great Gulf is so well known.
Great Gulf’s models were honoured with many prestigious awards in 2009 from the Niagara Home Builders’ Association. The two-storey 2,330 sq. ft. Elgin (Elevation C) is the NHBA winner of Best New Home Design for 2-storey 2,000-2,500 sq. ft. Standards also dominate the décor in this three-bedroom model, which is perfect for the young couple that may be first-time buyers. The model is furnished entirely with items from The Brick, and features a youthful modern concept for the décor.

The 2,605 sq. ft. Logan (Elevation B) was named Best Overall New Home Design for 2-storey over 2,500 sq. ft., plus captured Most Outstanding Kitchen – Production Built New Construction. Considered a ‘designer’ home, this model’s traditional décor appeals to professionals who may have children, and showcases the breadth of upgrades available such as crown mouldings, granite countertops, a tumbled mosaic backsplash, and dark hardwood throughout.

The 2,660 sq. ft. Chippawa (Elevation B) Corner Model Home/Sales Office received NHBA’s Best Project Sales/Presentation Office & Signage award. This model has both standard features and upgrades in it, and all the models have large windows that let in a lot of natural light.

Named NHBA winner Best Overall New Home Design for 1-storey 1,200-1,800 sq. ft., the 1,740 sq. ft. Montrose (Elevation A) bungalow is done in a classic style that is appropriate for the spectrum of purchasers from empty-nesters who enjoy having grandkids visit, to professional couples with children. The décor scheme is accentuated by a fresh colour palette of icy blue with seafoam green. There are minimal upgrades in this home, which showcases Great Gulf’s superb standard features and finishes.

Great Gulf’s two-storey detached homes on 40’ lots range in size from 1,610 to 2,205 sq. ft. and  are priced from just the low-$270’s; and on 50’ lots from 1,740 to 3,035 sq. ft. from the low-$300’s. Bungalows from 1,740 to 1,850 sq. ft. begin from the $320’s.
