Let’s face it — looking for a brand-new customizable home in a large city like Toronto can be a stressful, time-consuming ordeal. In dense cities, there isn’t much space left for the construction of townhomes or single-family units. In addition, yard space is limited and land is extremely expensive.
This is one of the major reasons why empty nesters and retirees are turning their focus to places like the Niagara region, where there is a lot more space to spread out, and a lot more customizability to new townhomes and bungalows. Moving to a smaller town such as Niagara-on-the-Lake, for example, is one way to increase square footage, without increasing cost.
If you’ve decided it’s time to get out of the city and finally purchase your move-in ready or customizable dream home, new home builders in Niagara such as Blythwood Homes can help you find precisely what you’re looking for.
Blythwood Homes Offers Several Choices
Customizable homes are increasing in popularity, and it’s no wonder. If you’re approaching retirement age and looking for active adult living options, with maximum customizability in a region of the province that truly suits your lifestyle, a new bungalow could be the perfect fit. And with the right home builder, you don’t need to start from scratch in order to customize your space.
Blythwood Homes — a member with The Niagara Home Builders Association — builds move-in ready homes in active adult communities.
For homebuyers who are happiest moving directly into their home with as little effort as possible, move-in ready homes allow you to settle in quickly, and get right to exploring your new town and community. For some, remodelling and customizing after moving in can be a fun experience. For others, settling in and enjoying the new space right away is more appealing.
Of course, you’ll still be able to choose from many different layouts and floor plans to decide which of our detached bungalow or bungalow townhomes is best for you.
Move-in Ready Homes include all of the furniture and design flourishes you could want in a contemporary home. You’ll even enjoy the services of a personal décor specialist from the Blythwood Homes team who will go over any custom changes and selections with you. These specialists will also ensure the whole house is ready for you on the day you move in. All of our Move-In Ready homes come with the following specifications:
- Architecturally controlled exterior designs and colour selection
- Our homes come with GAF Prestique Timberline fiberglass shingles, which come with a 50-year non-prorated warranty
- High quality maintenance-free double glazed, casement and single hung vinyl windows bring life and light to every home

- Our “Silent Floor” system uses engineered TJI floor joists

Blythwood Homes is Dedicated to Low Maintenance Living
What makes living in one of our homes so appealing to empty-nesters and those nearing retirement is our low maintenance exteriors. Our detached bungalows and bungalow townhomes — such as those in our Oaks at Six Mile Creek or Vintages at Six Mile Creek communities — are condominiums. This means that maintenance such as lawn mowing, snow clearing, and even landscaping are taken care of by the property corporation.
This is particularly appealing for winter travellers, as they don’t need to worry about snow clearance while they’re away. At Blythwood Homes, we have a commitment to building the right type of home for you — and that’s why we feel it’s paramount that our customers enjoy the lifestyle they want when they move into one of our homes. Low maintenance living is just one of those lifestyle considerations.

Customizing a Blythwood home
Configuring your dream home from existing floor plans and layouts will not meet the discerning needs of every customer. For our more selective clients, we can work with you to develop a customized layout, style, and look to your home to ensure that it fits your exact desires and lifestyle needs.
Customizing your Home with Blythwood is this simple:
First, you can choose to add custom porches and walkouts, such as a covered terrace. This type of add-on is perfect for summer days where a little bit of shade is precisely what you need to enjoy your outdoor space. A covered terrace gives you a cool place to sit down with a cold iced tea after a day of golf or gardening. It’s also a perfect place to entertain, as friends and family can gather with you in the shade.
Based on your specification selections, we can work directly with suppliers to ensure that you get the exact cabinetry, flooring, appliances, and other amenities to match your style.
You can further customize everything from doors, windows, and trim sizes and styles as well as modifying closet sizes to get the exact room layouts you prefer. You can also adjust shower and bath sizes to customize your washrooms exactly as you’d like them.
We believe that you should be able to move into the space you love, and we will help you customize your home to make sure you love it.
Further Outdoor Options You Can Explore on Your Own
With a spacious backyard, you also have the freedom to make additions to your home as the years go by. With all that outdoor space, you can add a hot tub, a gazebo, or any other fixture you want. The space is yours after all, and in our active communities you’ll be making a lot of new friends, which means you want to be entertaining as well.
If you’ve been considering a move out of the city and a transition into custom home living in vibrant Niagara region, Blythwood Homes has something for you.
