The band kicked off the second annual barbecue at The Verandas in Port Hope with a number-one hit from 1967: “Groovin’ ” by The Young Rascals. This year’s gathering of 120 residents and owners-in-waiting was hosted by homebuilder Geranium Homes to welcome everyone to the neighbourhood.
“Our planned events really help new neighbourhoods to gel,” said Sue Webb Smith, Geranium’s marketing director.
Today, the first phase of The Verandas looks established with new gardens and creative landscaping on display. Phase 2 of The Verandas is now selling, offering a variety of affordable bungalows on 42- and 48-foot lots. Ten different two- and three-bedroom designs are available with optional plans including finished basement areas. Sizes range from 1,118 to 2,397 square feet (with an optional finished lower level included). Phase 2 prices start from $280,900 for a 42-foot lot. Three fully decorated and furnished models are available to tour showcasing the quality finishes and livable floorplans offered by Geranium.
