Copperstone is taking shape in Ballantrae

By late August, the roads and services at Copperstone will be complete at Geranium Home’s new enclave of 18 estate homes in the beautiful hamlet of Ballantrae. Soon the first of these magnificent residences will be under construction in this unique cul-desac nestled off Lakeshore Road, just east of Hwy 48. Copperstone’s quiet country setting is a pleasant walk to Musselman’s Lake, and a short drive to many golf courses, equestrian centres and the comprehensive urban amenities in Aurora and Stouffville.

Choose from seven two-storey homes and three bungalow-loft designs. Copperstone’s sumptuous interiors offer light-filled kitchens with oversized windows. Geranium’s designs even include a feature room that can serve as a Music or morning room. Families who desire a home with two master bedroom suites will find this offered in some of the designs. Each plan has a

covered rear porch or loggia, and most have a main-level mudroom and separate laundry.

Deluxe finishes include 9-foot main and second-floor ceilings and bright basement spaces with 8-foot ceilings. Oak stairs; hardwood flooring (as per plan); granite or marble countertops; and central air-conditioning are also part of the luxury. Elegant trim package for archways and half walls; substantial baseboards and window casings; and coffered, tray and waffle ceilings are offered, depending upon the home selected, and great rooms have a natural gas fireplace.

Homes here will be Energy Star® for New Homes labelled with third-party verification and energy savings. Copperstone homes will have the rough-in plumbing for a greywater reuse system, a further benefit to conserve water and energy.

Copperstone is an architecturally controlled community with beautiful

exteriors of genuine clay brick, structural precast stone, Hardie Board siding and trim, decorative mouldings and accent features.

Two-storey manor homes range in size from 3,164 square feet to 5,058 square feet and are priced from $1,170,000 to $1,370,000. Bungalow-loft designs measure from 2,990 square feet to 3,732 square feet and are priced from $1,190,000 to $1,230,000. Over half the lots have sold.
