NATIONAL HOMES ‘You are the blueprint means we build homes people want’ By Rocco Pantalone
From the elegant Townes of Richview in Etobicoke to the prestigious Stonehaven in Newmarket to the casual elegance of The Forest in Bradford to the traditional Churchill Collection in Forest Hill Village, National Homes is rolling out its 2014 collection of homes.
Before designing all of their homes, National does comprehensive research to test their ideas and to receive feedback from potential purchasers.
“National Homes commitment that ‘You are the blueprint’ is not just a marketing statement, it’s a reality,” says Deena Pantalone, marketing director at National Homes. “We listen carefully to our customers and potential customers because we want to build homes that people want.”
This is why National Homes’ consistently creates neighbourhoods that are in high demand. It isn’t rocket science. They give people what they want.
The Townes of Richview is an upscale three-storey, three-bedroom freehold townhome community near Princess Anne Manor and St. George’s Golf & Country Club in the Kipling and Eglinton Avenues area. Fitting seamlessly into this prestigious neighbourhood, the Townes of Richview feature two-car garages and a choice of large rear yards or charming private terraces that extend the living space outdoors. The Townes are within walking distance of public transportation, cafés, shopping, a library, recreational facilities, banks and sought-after schools. Currently in the pre-opening phase, people are invited to visit the National Homes website to register.
The recent Grand Opening of the Stonehaven community was an overwhelming success. Anyone who knows this project wouldn’t be surprised.
Stonehaven offers a rare opportunity to own at the city’s most prestigious neighbourhood. This mature, existing community at Bayview Avenue and Mulock Drive features large, manorstyle homes on oversized lots. Here, amidst pristine landscaping and wide, rolling cul de sacs National Homes is building a magnificent ravine enclave of detached homes up to 4,400 square feet.
The grand homes at Stonehaven offer nine-foot ceilings, a gourmet kitchen, pantry, spa ensuite, gleaming hardwood and walk-in closet(s). Prices for these remarkable detached homes start at $699,990, and now with additional lots released, there are still exceptional 40- and 50-foot lots and home plans available.
High demand compelled National Homes to open the newest phase at The Forest ahead of schedule. National is offering elegant detached homes on 36- and 40-foot lots with gracious elevations in stone, stucco and classic brick. This popular, all-detached neighbourhood, beside a lush woodlot near Professor Day Drive and Eighth Line, is the perfect place to bring up a family. Three exquisite model homes, exclusively decorated by Pottery Barn and West Elm, epitomize elegance and casual luxury in perfect balance.
Purchasers also receive 10 per cent off furniture at Pottery Barn, invitations to decor seminars from Pottery Barn hosted at the models and a complimentary session with the design consultant. These single-family homes offer designs to over 3,000 square feet and are priced from the upper $400,000s. There are limited lots left so visit the sales office and model homes at Professor Day Drive and Breeze Drive today.
In the upscale Forest Hill Village neighbourhood, construction is underway at National Homes’ Churchill Collection. Located on St. Clair Avenue West, with breathtaking skyline views that stretch to the lake, The Churchill Collection is bordered by Forest Hill’s tree-lined streets on one side and the rolling fields of Winston Churchill Park on the other. It’s walking distance to the cafés, markets, shops, bistros and restaurants of Forest Hill Village and the Upper Yorkville area.
Each of the spacious designs of the Churchill Collection is a modern reenvisioning of the classic townhome residence with understated elegance and timeless luxury. These three-storey homes feature wide, welcoming floor plans with airy open-concept living spaces, gourmet kitchens with bright, sun-filled breakfast areas, large master bedrooms with generous walk-in closets, spa-inspired ensuites and full backyards or private rooftop terraces. Optional elevators bring a refined tone and add a level of practicality.
Interior design at The Churchill Collection is by Alex Chapman, a designer of international stature (the Cotton House Resort in Mustique, the Trump Riverside Development in New York) and the mastermind behind Union 31, one of the country’s hottest design houses. These elegant townhomes are priced from $1.39 million to $1.7 million and will be available for move-in this year.
National Homes is committed to changing the way people think about homes. The needs of the customer is the driving force behind every National home.
