Remember the scene from the musical Oliver? “Please sir, I want some more . . .” cries little Oliver with his empty bowl in hand. “MORE?” asks Fagen, as if requesting for “more” is a cardinal sin! Wanting more, asking for more, expecting more is what it's all about for today's homebuyer and if you want more you should definitely consider a new home at Waterdown Meadows. Here Rosehaven Homes and Aspen Ridge Homes are building more spectacular homes starting from the mid $400,000s.
Over 20 years ago, these two builders started building homes in Waterdown. The exceptional customer service and outstanding homes that they offered to homebuyers back then began a long tradition of excellence that has carried through in dozens of communities throughout Southern Ontario. Now, 20 years later, Aspen Ridge and Rosehaven return to Waterdown with their latest limited release of 35-, 40- and 45-foot singles at Waterdown Meadows.
What makes this family-friendly community so desirable is its immediate proximity to local parks, schools, libraries, restaurants and more. The neighbourhood is connected to everywhere you want to go.
As part of the Town of Flamborough, Waterdown has become an extremely attractive family community. Known as the Victorian Village, Waterdown has a long history in the area. From its roots as a mill town from 1800 to the early 20th century, the village has grown and changed with the times. Today, more than 250 businesses operate in Waterdown, providing convenience and variety to its residents.
One of the most charming aspects of Waterdown is its Saturday Farmers' Market. Here vendors sell everything from fruit, vegetables, artisan cheese, organic wine, free-range eggs, tea, artisan bread, pastries and ethically raised antibiotic and hormone-free meat. With an equal mix of organic and conventional, an on-site fair-trade organic coffee café, live music and free parking, a day out at the Market is always an enjoyable one. The Farmers' Market season begins on Saturday May 30.
Another attraction in Waterdown is the Flamborough Family YMCA, located at 207 Parkside Drive in Waterdown. The Y offers wellness programs, aquatic programs and pre- school child and teen programs. All located in a beautiful facility that is just a short drive from Waterdown Meadows.
The Waterdown Village Theatre — currently undergoing renovations and will be re-opening soon — is another popular venue. Last season, the Village Theatre offered three exceptional plays, Murder by the Book, The Uninvited and Snow White. Future productions have not yet been announced.
Of course the natural beauty of the Waterdown area is reason enough to fall in love with this community. Surrounded by forest and waterfalls, hiking and biking trails, golf courses and conservation parks, it's one of the prettiest, most scenic areas of the province. And quick access to the QEW and Highways 403 and 407 make it an ideal location for commuters.
So if you and your family are looking for more — more home, more lot, more features and more time to spend together — consider a stunning new home by Rosehaven Homes or Aspen Ridge Homes at Waterdown Meadows. From the mid $400,000s, you will absolutely get more for your home- buying dollar than anywhere else.
