Welcome to Glenbrook Estates in Niagara-on-the-Lake
Built in 1998 by Grey Forest Homes, this cluster of 32 townhomes is tucked away off of the main road providing a comfortable and mature townhome environment. Situated around a treed grass area in the middle of the court, you'll enjoy returning to your new townhome.
Townhome #22 has an enviable position in Glenbrook Estates, backing onto the Lower Virgil Reservoir. The views out back are special regardless of the time of year. In the summer, you can relax watching the sun dance on the water while in the winter, the pond more resembles a Norman Rockwell painting as ice skaters twirl and enjoy some winter fun.
Let's chat about the townhome...
At just under 1,400 sq.ft. on the main floor, you will find the bungalow floorplan to be very comfortable. The front foyer opens on the left into the living room and dining room area. Highlights of this space include hardwood floors, vaulted ceiling and a gas fireplace. The formal dining room area is ample in size so rest assured, you can bring your dining room suite with you.
Step around the corner and you’ll be in the spacious kitchen. With south-east facing windows, you’ll love the warm morning light in the colder months of the year. The kitchen has loads of cabinetry with plenty of space for the chef to work their magic. Casual day-to-day meals will be comfortably served on the breakfast table which is adjacent to the patio doors leading out to the deck.
Beside this space is the den, an ideal spot to enjoy a movie or sit quietly and enjoy a good book. Again, this space has a window looking out to the lovely backyard with the water in view as well.
The primary suite, also at the back of the home, is a generous size and includes a spacious bedroom (easily accommodates a king-sized suite), walk-in closet as well as an ensuite bathroom.
Back in the hallway you’ll find the laundry space with the main bathroom and door in from the garage just a few steps away.
Let’s head downstairs…
When the kids come over for a visit, you’ll love having the additional space in the lower level. At the base of the steps is a large recroom which includes built-in shelves on the front wall of the room.
Keep heading back and you’ll find a full bathroom and 2 bonus rooms, one currently used as a bedroom. If you’re in search of storage, then your search is over! There is a large storage area downstairs which measures the width of the townhome at just under 30 feet.
Back upstairs, head out to the deck which overlooks the trees and water in back. There is a roll-out awning here which will come in handy in the summer months.
Are you new to condos? Feel free to reach out and ask any questions that you may have. The main thing to know is that as a condo owner, you own your ‘unit’ as well as a proportional share of the common elements maintenance, upkeep and management.
This lifestyle is perfect for those looking to enjoy life, travel, visit, entertain and relax but without the grass cutting, snow shovelling and day-to-day maintenance concerns of a freehold home.
How much is the condo fee?
The condo fee is broken up into 2 parts.
$565 per month covers the usual condo items. The water bill, condo insurance, exterior maintenance (roof, windows, exterior), grass cutting and snow shovelling, grounds keeping, parking. Part of that amount would be allocated to the reserve fund as well, which is kept and maintained to pay for future expenditures as needed to keep Glenbrook Estates as beautiful as it is today.
$67.80 per month is paid for Bell FIBE TV and internet so that is already up and running at your new home.
All of this and we haven't even mentioned the lovely community of Virgil yet! With restaurants, old town Niagara-on-the-Lake, outdoor activity space and beautiful Niagara wine country all within easy reach, you'll enjoy life here in this welcoming neighbourhood.
