In the charming village of Hastings, next to Rice Lake and the Trent River, is a new community by Batavia Home that offers our-season, resort-style living. Just 50 minutes northeast of Oshawa, Hastings Estates ffers all brick single-detached homes on extra large lots, among lush rolling hills, picturesque countryside and sparkling lakes and rivers. Homes start at just $194,900, and include a bonus package of $5,000 in cash back on some models at closing or a five-year lease of a boat slip. “The great pricing at Hastings Estates is a huge draw for our homebuyers,” says Greg Defrietas, president of Batavia Homes. “The community appeals to every type of purchaser — from first time buyers and young families to empty nesters. People love the home designs and the wonderful location, close to the water.”
Hastings Estates is centrally located with easy access to the amenities and attraction of Peterborugh, Cobourg and Campbellford which all are a 20-minute drive; and, is situated just 90 minutes from downtown Toronto. “Most of our buyers are from the GTA. Some purchasers have commented that they are very happy they made the visit when they see the value they are getting,” says Defrietas. Most buyers are able to take advantage of the equity they have built up in their GTA home and purchase mortgage free with substantial amount of cash left over to invest. “We try to accommodate them by doing offers conditional on the sale of their home. If they do need a mortgage they take advantage of the low rates being offered,” he adds.
At Hastings Estates, purchasers can choose from eight different home designs that are available in several elevations. Large 44’ and 50’ lots are 110 feet deep and some homes back onto conservation lands. Bungalow and two-storey designs offer spacious floor plans that range from 945 sq. ft. to 2, 410 sq. ft. Cathedral ceiling s, walk-out basements and kitchens with breakfast bars re a sampling of the unique design elements of some models. Homes feature open concept kitchens and great rooms and most designs offer luxurious master ensuites, with oval soaker tubs and separate shower stalls.
