Summer at Summerlyn Village…Naturally Beautiful!

BRADFORD, ONTARIO, JULY 21, 2010 – Summer is one of the best times to visit Summerlyn Village in Bradford, where Great Gulf Homes’ highly successful community is in full bloom. The most recent collection of homes is situated adjacent to the berm that lies along the western portion of this community. Here, park-like landscaping includes double plantings of shade trees that line the extra-wide sidewalks of the Village Promenade, which links Summerlyn Creek and Overlook Pass with miles of fitness trails. Discover a spectacular selection of detached homes on 40’ and 40’ lots, as well as the limited number of semis, and detached homes on 36’ lots remaining. Prices at Summerlyn Village are up to $200,000 less than equivalent homes in the GTA.

Summerlyn Village’s natural beauty includes a pond, creek, wildlife corridor and wetlands on the 340-acre property. A highlight of the master-planning is the designation of 60 acres as environmentally protected. In addition, Great Gulf is maintaining a woodlot with century-old oaks and maples, and is providing extensive new native plantings across the entire neighbourhood. Summerlyn Village was recognized by the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority with a Water Conservation Award, presented to individuals and groups who have completed a project that improves water quality and wildlife in the Lake Simcoe Watershed.

Eventually home to over 1,000 families, Summerlyn Village is located just 30 minutes north of Toronto, 15 minutes north of Vaughan, close to a GO Station and only 10 minutes from Lake Simcoe and cottage country. Existing elementary and secondary schools and shopping venues are within walking distance. The community will also feature a future school, the new Town Centre with a library, a recreation centre, and the Town’s new administrative building.

Lined with old-world English-style lampposts, Summerlyn Village’s streets are characterized by old-world English-style lampposts, and the homes have charming architectural details. Modern, open-concept interiors offer gourmet kitchens with custom-quality cabinets, rich ceramics, natural oak railings and pickets on the main staircase, and luxurious ensuites.
