Port Hope Construction Progress

07/13/2012

Servicing begins at Mason Homes' Port Hope community.

In a blog post dated May 13 of last year, I wrote that our Port Hope Golf & Country Club community had passed the Port Hope planning committee.

One year and one month later, servicing is well underway at Port Hope, as the image above shows. Once this is finished, we’ll begin construction.

Port Hope will offer retreat-style adult living, including community outdoor activities and a wide selection of restaurants, boutiques and art galleries to entertain you. What’s more, the Port Hope Golf & Country Club is just steps away, so this will be a great community for those of you who love golfing.

I’m very excited about this community, so it pleases me to watch it become a reality.

If you’d like to learn more about our Port Hope Golf & Country Club community, this section of our website contains everything you need to know.

The Port Hope Farmers’ Market is Now Open for 2012

05/04/2012

Having blogged last week about Peterborough’s farmers’ markets, I should mention that the Port Hope Farmers’ Market will open for the season tomorrow, after which it will open every Wednesday and Saturday until October 27th.

Selling fresh produce, home baked goods, and arts and crafts, this is quite a popular farmers’ market. (Be aware that while the location remains the same on Saturdays, it has changed to 48 Mill St. S. for Wednesday sessions.)

Either location is a mere 5-minute drive from the Port Hope Golf & Country Club sales office, which is located at 415 Lakeshore Road. Our staff will gladly answer your questions from noon to 5 pm on weekdays and 9:30 am to 6 pm on weekends.

Designed with active adults in mind, this is the perfect community for those of you who have more leisure time after a lifetime of hard work, and wish to spend it leading an active lifestyle, playing golf, strolling, and visiting the nearby parks and conservation areas. Learn more here!

Don’t Miss This Exciting New Event at Port Hope Golf and Country Club!

02/10/2012
Red Wine Setup

What better way to enjoy this than with friends?

If you moved to a Mason Homes community, chances are you know there is more to life than locking the door behind you when you get home. Like-minded people live around you, and your community was designed so that it’s easy for you to mix and mingle, should you be so inclined.

With that in mind, this Saturday we’re holding a Valentine’s Day event at our Port Hope Golf & Country Club community. Called A Rose for Every Rose, this event isn’t limited to your or your neighbours — indeed, feel free to bring as many friends as you like.

So if you’d like to socialize this coming Saturday at 4 pm and enjoy some complimentary wine and cheese, please RSVP today at porthope@masonhomes.ca.

Can New Urbanism Be Applied to the Interior of Homes?

01/13/2012

We at Mason Homes believe in applying the principles of New Urbanism to our communities, not just because they help preserve the environment, but also because they make life more enjoyable and convenient for our homeowners, who now get to walk more, enjoy nature, and reduce car usage.

But why stop there? Having applied these principles to the communities themselves, wouldn’t it make sense to apply them to the homes’ interiors as well?

Life is easy at Port Hope Golf & Country Club.

Take our Port Hope Golf and Country Club community. Designed for active adults, this is already a green community, featuring Energy Star-qualified homes and located so that amenities are within easy walking distance.

More to the point, it’s also a community whose homes are designed with ease of movement in mind. Consider their optional features that are part of our accessibility options program:

  • Wider door openings and hallways
  • Right-height raised toilets
  • Easy-opening lever handles for doors and faucets
  • Lowered light switches and upper cabinets
  • Anti-slip bathtub in the ensuite bathroom
  • Easy-reach grab bars in bathrooms
  • Accessible spaces

Thanks to these features, Port Hope Golf and Country Club homeowners can rest assured life in their homes will be effortless.  And all it took was for design to place people first and foremost — much like New Urbanism does.

Mason Homes’ Port Hope Community in the Toronto Star

01/06/2012

In my last blog post, I mentioned that we’re building a new Design Studio in Peterborough, which is a convenient location for our Avonlea and Port Hope Golf and Country Club homebuyers.

A beautiful streetscape at our Port Hope community.

What I didn’t mention is that the Toronto Star recently printed a nice write-up about our Port Hope community. It was great to be featured in Canada’s largest newspaper.

Take a minute to read the article here and leave your comment below. Or you can just come to our sales office and model home for more information.

Have a great weekend!

Mason Homes Wins Awards

11/25/2011

Last weekend, Mason Homes won five awards at the Peterborough & The Kawarthas Home Builders Association’s 2011 Kawartha Awards of Distinction. All five awards pertain to our Port Hope Golf & Country Club community. They are: 

  • Best Tract Built Home over 1,500 sq. ft. (the Monarch)
  • Best Sales Brochure
  • Best New Home Sales Office
  • Best Print Ad Campaign
  • Best Project Logo Design & Signage 

Having put so much work and thought into this community (as we do with all others) it’s nice to see it get recognized.

The home that won the award was the Monarch model. Through this home’s design we attempted to address the needs of active empty nesters (which form the community’s target demographic).

A large living room adjoins a formal dining room, and a kitchen with optional breakfast bar.

Because many empty nesters love to entertain, the Monarch features an open-concept design in a bungalow that includes a loft, good for extra bedrooms, guest space, games room, or a home office.

The ensuite bathroom is like a personal spa — the large shower is enclosed in floor-to-ceiling glass doors, the tub features air jets, and tasteful tiles complete the look.

The Monarch also has a large living room, adjoining a formal dining room, and a kitchen with optional breakfast bar. Eight-feet sliding doors in the kitchen and large windows overlooking the back yard make this living area flexible and flooded with natural light.

We are happy and honoured to have won this prize.

We’ve built the Monarch as a model home in Port Hope, so come visit it this weekend and see it for yourself!

Note: We’ve just added pictures taken during the ceremony to our Facebook page. Check them out here
