Halloween in the Mason Homes Communities

There are many Halloween events close to our communities.

It’s that time of the year again — the time when your kids dress up and maybe you do, too. Most people like Halloween, so today I’ll bypass my usual green topics and list some of the events you can attend if you live in or near one of Mason Homes’ communities.

On Saturday, the Farmes’ Market and the City Hall will hold the 3rd Annual Halloween ‘Spook’tacular event. Taking place from 8am to noon, this event will feature costume and pumpkin-carving contests, as well as face-painting and free hot apple cider. Perfect if you have kids!

Later that day, the Roxx will host a Halloween event called The Haunting of 46 Dunlop St. West, featuring DJ Jug E and on-air personality Will Nash of B101 FM Radio.

On Saturday afternoon, the Hutchinson House, a museum dedicated to the 1800s, will host children’s Halloween activities that feature bat crafts, apple games, fortune-telling, and tricks and treats. Costumes are encouraged, and it only costs $3 to attend.

There will be an event called Halloween Howl at the Ganaraska Forest from 6pm to 9pm. It includes pumpkin carving, crafts, and a campfire with hot chocolate. Call 905-885-8173 to pre-register.

The Haunted Hernder’s Hallows Part 3 kicks off at 8:30pm at Hernder Estate Wines (1607 on 8th Avenue), with a $500 cash prize for the best costume and music by Jonesy.

I hope you have fun this weekend, and don’t forget to check out this article, which I tweeted about last week, for tips for a green Halloween.

Our New Design Studio is Almost Ready


As I’ve mentioned before, we’re building a new Design Studio in Peterborough.

Visiting our Design Studio allows homeowners to choose the features and finishes of their new home. We’ve had one at our head office in Concord for some time now.

As important (and pleasant, I must add) as it is for homeowners to visit our Design Studio, we recognize it can pose an inconvenience for those who live far away.

Hence the decision to build a second Design Studio, this time in Peterborough, which is closer to several of our communities such as Avonlea, Port Hope Golf & Country Club, and our future Cobourg community.

Here are a few pictures of the new Design Studio under construction:

Pictures of our Avonlea Community


A friend who happened to be in Peterborough a few days back was kind enough to take photos of our Avonlea community. I thought I’d share them with you.

For those of you who don’t know, Avonlea is a community of green homes from the $200’s in beautiful Peterborough. It’s surrounded by a protected green space as well as a park and it’s within walking distance to shopping and schools. Take a look around this award-winning community!


Only 1 Home Left at Just4U


A quick note to let you know we have only one home left at our fantastic Just4U community of townhomes in Barrie. It’s the Fever model, on lot 20, and it’s for sale for a very reasonable $229,999.

This Georgian-inspired townhome has 1,580 sq. ft. and you can check it out here (click “floorplan” on the left to take a look at this home’s spacious living area, cool kitchen, and couple’s master bedroom).

Like all our Just4U homes, the Fever model comes with stylish finishes, sunny windows and doors, and energy-saving features that will keep your hard-earned money in your pocket.

What’s more, plenty of local amenities surround Just4U, so you can have fun whether you’re outside or inside.
