Exceptional and affordable lifestyle at The Verandas

exciting lifestyle,” says Sue Webb Smith, Geranium’s Marketing Director.

“Visitors to The Verandas Sales Centre can see the construction taking place. Our three beautifully furnished and decorated Model Homes give clients a better appreciation of how spacious and well-designed these homes are,” says Sue. “They can imagine themselves living here quite comfortably. And, we’ve learned that annual community-building events, like the gardening event, are important to help our new neighbourhoods gel.”

Located minutes from Port Hope’s historic downtown, The Verandas will have a landscaped park, walking paths and gazebo, overlooking a pond. Homes feature welcoming exteriors with sizeable, covered front porches, double-car garages and heritage-influenced, low-maintenance materials.

Set on 42- and 48-foot lots, 10 bungalow floor plans of two and three bedrooms are available; many also have optional plans to include finished basement areas. Sizes range from 1,118 to 2,397 square feet (with optional finished basement plan). Prices range from $277,900 to $370,900. A bonus of $10,000 towards upgrades is currently offered.

In addition to their excellent construction standards, Geranium’s homes are ENERGY STAR® for New Homes qualified, featuring third-party verification and up to 20 per cent energy savings (over homes built to Ontario Building Code minimum standards) from the day you move in.

Shopping and the Port Hope Golf Club and Yacht Clubs is a short walk. And, it’s only a 10-minute drive to the Northumberland Hills Hospital in Cobourg. Nearby, there are 200-plus acres of parkland, including trails, ball diamonds, gardens, naturalized areas and playgrounds. The Ganaraska River offers some of the best fishing around and the Waterfront Trail is one of many hiking, walking and cycling trails in Northumberland County.
