You can read all the history books in the world and we could tell you ‘everything you need to know about Whitby’, but you’re not going to really get it unless you go and explore on your own. The people, the town, the businesses, the environment – these are things one must experience in their own way to truly understand a place. Luckily for you Whitby has 5 planned walking tours that you can take whenever you want. We’ll give you an idea of what each will include to get you ready to take to the streets and walk! Here are 5 to check out if you want to get to know Whitby better.
2017 has been a memorable year for the Paradise Developments team. From renovations at our new office, to all our new communities, it’s been an exciting year. Most recently, our High Point community in Brampton had a huge release, as did our much-anticipated Whitby Meadows – the largest choice of new homes ever introduced in one community. Upper Mount Pleasant in Brampton, as well as Impressions in Kleinburg have been progressing as well. Here’s a little update to see where we’re at with these communities as 2017 wraps up.
The best thing about our Whitby Meadows community is that you have a choice. A choice in builder, a choice in home, and a choice in lifestyle. If you choose a Paradise Home there are even more great things to choose from. From finishes to design, you get to decide how you want your dream home to be built. One of the biggest choices you’ll make is whether you want a classic or a contemporary home. Both are stunning in their own right, but which speaks to your aesthetic, lifestyle, and perspective more? We’ll help explain the difference to make your decision a little easier.
When you think of Whitby, you think of small town charm. While there is no lack of charm in this lovely community, that doesn’t mean Whitby is sleepy. If anything, it’s the opposite! The population has been on the rise, with a 5.2% change reported between 2011 and 2016. Being a 30 minute drive from Toronto definitely has its benefits. On one hand you’re just a short ride away from a bustling city centre, but on the other, you’re just far enough away to enjoy the peace, quiet, and sense of neighbourhood that only a close knit community like Whitby can provide. It’s this community that makes Whitby such a great place to live. We spoke to some of Whitby’s most beloved small businesses and asked them what it is that they <3 about Whitby. Here’s what they had to say:
Nothing holds your hand, drags you to the shower and says “it’s time to roll out of bed and conquer today” like an encouraging mug of hot coffee – or iced coffee, if you’re into that. Luckily for us, Brampton feels the same way about caffeinated beverages, and proof of that lies in the fact that our city has so many cafe options to choose from! Here are ten places that will give you that zing you’re looking for!
In terms of creating a work life balance, we all set out with the best intentions. You plan to separate the two, leaving your work at the office and saving the home for family life. But as we all know too well, this isn’t always practical. Sometimes you may have some extra work that followed you home, or perhaps you’re blessed with work from home days! In these situations, the last thing you want to do is set up a temporary and uncomfortable work space in your dining room. You need an actual space where you can sit down, roll up your sleeves, and get that work out of the way. You need a home office! Here’s some inspiration to help you on your way to designing your very own dream home office.
The excitement is building! There’s so much to love for the GTA and Whitby is one of those places. This gem shouldn’t be overlooked, it’s got a lot going for it. From green space to community events, it’s a great place to live and raise a family. This is why we’re thrilled to be a part of Whitby Meadows, a community that’s going to bring new life to the area near Coronation Road and Rossland Road.
But first, let us indulge you in some of the details that make Whitby the charming town you’ll want to call home. This is Whitby by the numbers:
Social media is a hot topic in every industry – for both good and bad reason. Being the optimists that we are, we tend to lean towards the positive perspective on things. In fact, we’ll go so far as to say we love Instagram! Why are we professing our love for a social media channel? Because it provides us with endless design inspiration. Being home design and decor junkies, this is one of our favourite ways to unwind and would highly recommend it to all other lovers of interior design. Sit back with your phone, scroll through these beautiful design accounts, and get ready to be inspired!
When it comes to #WhitbyMeadows, the things to get excited about are endless. We’ve already outlined a few of the highlights including the location and the lifestyle. There’s no doubt in our minds that living at #WhitbyMeadows will help make your life all the more amazing. You’ll never be far from anything you or your family could possibly need with all the culture, shopping, and dining you could hope for. In terms of the location, any amenity you could think of is just around the corner, not to mention beautiful conservation areas and trails to enjoy Whitby’s nature. The location and lifestyle can’t be beat, and neither can the homes! Here’s an inside look at what makes your Paradise Developments home so special.
While we’re certainly very excited for the launch of our next Whitby Meadows release, we don’t think we’re the only ones. Enthusiasm has been building for the community for quite some time now, and for good reason! The community is incredible! With friendly faces everywhere you turn, as well as everything you could need just around the corner, Whitby is an amazing place to live. From the amenities to the beautiful outdoors, it’s the place to be. In our next edition of ‘The Best of Whitby’ we’re talking all about why the location is so great.
With a new season upon us, there’s a lot to look forward to. We’re excited about one thing in particular: the next Whitby Meadows release! With new homes and new lots coming Saturday, April 21st, it’s hard to contain our excitement. Until then, we’re going to highlight all the reasons Whitby Meadows is the very best – from the homes to the location – there’s nowhere better to live. To start things off we’re going to shine a spotlight on the amazing lifestyle you’ll enjoy living in Whitby Meadows.
The phrase ‘Pretty in pink’ may immediately transport you to the 80’s, sitting on some awful chesterfield, and watching the classic film about angsty teens. What the chesterfields of that era may have lacked, the 21st century couches and chairs definitely compensate for. Whether it’s beautiful leathers, or plush velvets the choices in luxe seating are endless and make choosing a new couch next to impossible. To help us choose our favourite current style, we like to see what our favourite design accounts on Instagram have to offer. For almost a year now one trend keeps popping up on our screens. So much so, that we can no longer ignore it. What trend is that, you ask? Soft, pink sofas and chairs! Take a look at our inspirational guide.
