If you’re interested in living in Stouffville, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of Geranium Homes’ The Neighbourhoods of Cardinal Point. Well, it was recently announced that the final phase of this master-planned community, VISTA Flats & Towns, is launching very soon!
Since 2008, Geranium Homes has been building and developing the Cardinal Point community. According to the Town’s Economic Development Strategy 2015-2020, Whitchurch-Stouffville has grown by 85% over the last 10 years, making it the fastest growing municipality in Ontario. Since more than 800 families have decided to call Cardinal Point home, Geranium Homes has clearly played a large role in the area’s rapid growth.
In 2014, Cardinal Point received the Best Places to Grow Community of the Year Award at the annual Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) Awards. This was also the year we toured Uptownes at Cardinal Point. When the Uptownes collection launched, Geranium set a new standard of living, introducing an innovative housing style they dubbed, stacked back-to-back townhomes. The blocks of townhomes are three storeys high and have spacious rooftop terraces with views over the surrounding area.
With VISTA Flats & Towns, Geranium Homes is once again getting innovative. The VISTA collection will feature condo one-storey flats, as well as two-storey townhomes. These new homes will be located on the western edge of Cardinal Point, east of Highway 48 and north of Stouffville Road.
“Prices at VISTA will start from the high $300,000s and will have enormous appeal for first-time homebuyers,” says Stephanie Lane, marketing and sales manager at Geranium Homes. “They will also appreciate the variety of homes already built in Cardinal Point, representing move-up opportunities within the community they love, should they desire a larger home down the road.”
The reason that Geranium Homes’ one-storey flats and two-storey townhomes at VISTA will stand out in the new home market is that there aren’t many opportunities for first-time homebuyers outside of major urban centres like downtown Toronto. Most first-time homebuyers look to the high-rise market for a 350 to 500 square foot condo in the sky, but that’s not an ideal living situation for all younger buyers.
VISTA is an opportunity for first-time homebuyers who prefer a small-town atmosphere, and even if you work downtown Toronto, Cardinal Point is very close to reliable transit options. The GO Station and buses that operate back and forth to Union Station are just steps away and the ride only takes about an hour. This way, you can have a larger home in a low-rise neighbourhood, keep the good job downtown and avoid traffic in the mornings! If you do prefer to drive, Highways 404 and 407 are easily accessible.
One of the reasons that Cardinal Point has been such an attractive community for so many families, aside from Geranium Homes’ reputation for building high quality communities, is the fact that it is so close to Main Street. This strip is where you will find the majority of the amenities that you will need on a daily basis, like coffee shops, restaurants, grocery stores, banks, pharmacies, and other retailers.
