Today's Homes August 29th issue
In the charming and historic Kleinburg Village, Averton Homes offers the opportunity of a lifetime, with condominium villas in three distinctive buildings nestled adjacent to a preserved heritage residence(the Martin Smith House), all on beautifully landscaped grounds. Now over 70 per cent sold, this limited collection of just 34 suites is cradled amid nature's greenery, literally at the doorstep of the famous McMichael Canadian Art Collection, which is anchored by works of the Group of Seven. Residents can also walk to casual and fine-dining restaurants, and within minutes, they can access three prestigious golf courses; the hiking, biking, jogging trails and picnic spots of nearby Boyd Conservation Area; and Kortright Centre, Canada's largest environmental education facility. Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre, Woodbridge Smartcentres and Highways 407 and 400 are also close by. Situated just above the Humber River Ridge, Kleinburg is part of the City of Vaughan, which is one of the Greater Toronto Area's most popular residential destinations. Many Kleinburg residents say they visited the Village to shop, browse through art galleries or have dinner and were so taken with the area's early Canadian ambience, they decided to make Kleinburg their home.
Within Kleinburg, discover the ultimate town-and-country address at Averton Common, where many luxurious suites remain, some facing the lush ravine filled with songbirds, mature trees and the meandering Humber River. Owners will enjoy walking the groomed grounds shaded by majestic trees and relaxing in the outdoor gazebo amid views uncluttered by a manmade skyline. All of this is cradled behind an inviting, professionally landscaped entrance that offers a true sense of arrival.
Sporting heritage-inspired architecture to harmonize with their surroundings, The Mill House, The Manor Building and The Inn Residences are connected, yet unique in appeal, each beckoning with elegance, charm and sophistication. Each unique building is characterized by complimenting heritage colour schemes, styles and materials. Circa 1852, the historic Martin Smith House will be maintained as a heritage residence that will encompass some of the amenities available to owners at Averton Common. In the Martin Smith House, the party room features a full catering kitchen, lounge, games room, meeting room and guest rooms for overnight visitors.
To nurture a full and well-balanced lifestyle, Averton Common is also home to a yoga and fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment in The Mill House. Oenophiles will appreciate having wine lockers available in the fully monitored wine storage facility and tasting room.
In keeping with Averton Common's location adjacent to one of Canada's significant art galleries – The McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the luxurious one and two-storey residences are tastefully appointed with superb finishes, all as per plan. These include grand 9-foot ceilings with a smooth finish in the principal rooms, setting the scene for artful living. Easy-care, pre-engineered wood flooring adds elegance underfoot, and in the two-storey residences, the natural-tone oak veneer staircase leads you to the relaxing second-floor oasis with luxurious bedrooms and baths.
Dream kitchens offer European-style cabinetry complemented by extended uppers, soft-close drawers, a glass mosaic or ceramic backsplash, granite or quartz countertops, convenient under-counter lighting, and stainless steel appliances. Crown moulding in the foyer, kitchen, living room, dining room, bedrooms and study adds yet another layer of richness to these extraordinary living spaces. Spa-inspired master ensuites feature 12" x 12" marble tile flooring, marble countertops, as well as soaker bathtubs.
Spacious private balconies and patios expand your living space with glorious outdoor areas, and provisions for a future barbecue hook-up extend your entertaining possibilities. Each suite has an individually controlled thermostat for heating and cooling. Offering peace-of-mind, the lobby and underground parking facilities are video monitored from the beautifully appointed lobby, and there is secured access through all common areas.
The beautiful suites range from 890 to 1,482 square feet in size and are priced from the $600,000s.
Prices include the peace-of-mind that comes from purchasing from a builder with an impressive track record for excellence in design and service. Averton Homes is building on over 50 years of experience to become one of Canada's elite national home builders. Uniting the talent and experience of Ontario's Beaverbrook Homes and Alberta's Westbrook Homes, under the banner of Averton Homes, the organization has branched out into British Columbia with numerous large-scale projects currently in development, including a new waterfront community on Vancouver Island. What began as a family-run business in Toronto in 1958 grew steadily over the past five decades, from building single-family homes to entire communities in numerous markets throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Now with a strong presence in three of Canada's strongest real estate markets, Averton Homes is a bold new player in the country's residential building sector, and still maintains the quality and customer service for which the company is so well known.
