Haven Review | Vol. 7

Big things are happening in Haven.

Winter is almost finished and work on the site is moving along at a great pace. Servicing has been completed and tree clearing and site preparation will be completed this spring to make way for the first 10 private residences!

We are removing only the minimum quantity of trees and vegetation needed to allow for the future homes and driveways, as a result this will create a community with a great sense of privacy and completely surrounded by nature.

Please contact us at 855-305-7963 (Or if you’re in Campbellford at 705-243-6420) for more information.

Haven on the Trent introduces Key Lots Concept Along the Trent River
As an innovative community builder with a long history, Sifton Properties is excited to introduce an innovative concept at Haven on the Trent. We are excited to introduce the Key Lot community design, which increases the number of homes with riverside access while maintaining privacy between the homes. The Key Lot design concept is attainable due to our oversized lots up to 300’ in depth. Each lot along the Trent River will have its own private piece of shoreline complete with a provision for an optional private dock. Purchasers will be able to select Waterfront Lots, Water-Access Lots or extra deep Wooded Lots that are up to 250’ deep and represent some of the most private building lots available anywhere today.

Each building lot will uniquely follow the contours and natural features of the land, influencing building envelopes, driveway cuts and dock positions. All of the lots are heavily forested offering a rare opportunity to built your new home on a fully serviced lot in the middle of the woods. In an effort to preserve the natural beauty of this location we will be selective in the tree removal process when preparing the site to ensure a high level of privacy and to minimize our impact on the environment.

Market Review

Campbellford and the Municipality of Trent Hills is growing. While other communities east of the GTA saw more significant population growth in the latest census, Trent Hills experienced a record number of residential building permits in 2016. Campbellford is becoming a more popular destination for those escaping the heated housing market of the GTA, but promises to keep its small town charm.

We develop neighbourhoods and communities with lifestyle and lasting value.

* From the Royal Lepage 4th Quarter House Price Survey

Recently, increases in completion and price have begun to force prospective homeowners to find affordable real estate outside of the Greater Toronto Area, while others are opting to wait on the sidelines for price increases to slow – choosing to rent or renovate – further fueling inventory shortages across the region.

For most of the Boomers this means that many not realize exactly how much their homes value and their equity has grown. Many are cashing in and investing in their retirement dream home in outlining areas such as Cobourg, Campellford, Bellville and Prince Edward County where they can have their home custom built for ½ the price of their current home, and have the extra cushion to go on trips or support their retirement comfortably.
