Glen Ridge Estates is coming to Aurora this June!
Byon March 23, 2016
In just a few months, Fairgate Homes and OPUS Homes will be collaborating to bring their esteemed brand of luxury to one of the best communities in the country with their new development, Glen Ridge Estates. The estates, planned for Aurora, have been highly anticipated and the big opening is coming this June!
Glen Ridge Estates will be located in Aurora, conveniently nestled between Richmond Hill and Newmarket. Getting around the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is a breeze thanks to the nearby Highway 404; downtown Toronto is only 40 minutes away! Commuters also have the option of using the GO Bus, which travels directly to Union Station.
Modelled after French Chateaus, each estate is available on a 50’ or 60’ lot, as either a bungalow or a two-storey home, ranging to more than 5,000 square feet. The lots are situated in a ravine setting, creating a sense of tranquility throughout the streetscape. The vast amount of lush greenery also provides a significant amount of privacy.
The open concept living and dining areas are ideal for families to spend valuable quality time together, and there are still many areas of the home where privacy is achieved, such as spacious dens and luxurious master bedrooms. When guests arrive, they will be wowed by the lavish entrance and foyer, so you will always be excited and confident in hosting large dinner parties or get-togethers.
Raising a family in Aurora
Glen Ridge Estates is designed to accommodate your growing family. The basement can easily be finished to become a play area for children or maybe even a separate lounge area when your kids become teens (it’s going to happen eventually!). Other options for the basement could be a home theatre, a library, a hobby or music room, a nanny’s quarters for working parents, or a wine cellar!
The town of Aurora is notably keen on youth involvement. Their Youth Engagement Committee ensures that young voices are heard and represented in local legislation. Aurora also makes a strong effort to provide students with a wealth of activities to instil them with the values of physical fitness, charity and civic responsibility. Between lifeguarding and volunteering as Leisure Buddies, where youth provide support and companionship to their disabled peers, it is evident that Aurora teens have access to a wide variety of wholesome recreational opportunities.
For schooling, Aurora has some of the most prestigious institutions in the country. The city is home to St. Andrew’s College, Canada’s largest and most elite all-boys boarding school. Aurora locals have the unique option of experiencing the luxury of a boarding school while enjoying the comfort of living at home. Parents can also give their children a head-start with their pick of Montessori and French-immersion options.
Register for Glen Ridge Estates
OPUS Homes has proven themselves in Aurora already with their extremely successful Aurora Trails community, which is now sold out! Families are recognizing that Aurora can offer a small town atmosphere and the convenience of a big city, and OPUS Homes can see it too. Fairgate Homes has garnered an impressive portfolio of over 1,000 homes built around the GTA, from modern townhomes to glamorous estates.
With the June opening rapidly approaching and only 28 homes available, it is imperative that you register now! Early registration grants buyers exclusive perks, such as priority access to new information on the lots, a sneak peek at the building site, and a special invitation to the opening.
Don’t pass up this opportunity to live among Aurora’s elite in one of Canada’s most affluent towns!
