At Blythwood Homes, we understand that you have unique retirement plans, and we believe your home should reflect those choices. When someone downsizes from a prior house, there’s no reason that their lifestyle should become any less fulfilling.
When you move into a Blythwood Homes custom design, you’ll get to make choices that reflect the preferences you have now and the plans you have for the future. In fact, in a townhome or detached bungalow designed with active senior living and community in mind, you’ll discover advantages that you didn’t even realize you were missing.
The Benefit of New Options
All too often, people think that downsizing a home means that they have to settle for a small, cookie-cutter property that is mass-produced using cheap materials and a preplanned floorplan.
While that might be true in some of Canada’s densely populated urban areas, more and more seniors are using their retirement to discover how buying bungalow townhomes in the Niagara Region can open doors that no longer exist in large cities.
A Brand-New Look to Suit Your Tastes
Any time you move into a newly built house, you should gain an opportunity to shape that property to meet your needs. Sadly, with many housing companies today, what you see is what you get. However, when you work with Blythwood Homes on customized options for a new home, the first step of the process will be to determine features that you’d like to personalize to your tastes.
You’ll get access to choices like
- type and colour of flooring
- tone and colour of paint in each room
- appliances to suit your needs
If you have yet thought about what to consider when moving into a custom home regarding these kinds of choices, we can help to provide you with suggestions.
For example, it isn’t uncommon for seniors to have lived with the same monotony of a housing choice they made many years ago. You might discover that bringing simple changes in décor into your life, like new colours, can brighten how you feel day-to-day. Alternatively, you might find that choosing some of the options you enjoyed in your previous house will help to make your new property feel more like home.
Appreciating a Quality Build
In today’s world, it seems like the basic construction and renovation knowledge like how to read and understand floor plans is no longer appreciated by the average person. If you’re currently in the market for a custom-built home, you likely appreciate careful construction and quality materials.
You may not plan to look after all of your new home’s maintenance needs, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t appreciate living in a location that you know is well-built. After all, solid construction is built to last, which means it will cost less and require less hassle in the long run.
Streamlining the Process
One of the best aspects of working with Blythwood Homes is that your customizable home will come move-in ready. That means that the process of bringing the options that you want to your home can all be accommodated before construction begins, so you don’t have to make endless intrusive renovations later on.
If you buy a home that contains features you don’t want, you’re paying those additions in the initial price. In order to change the house to suit your need, you also have to pay for further renovations later on, and those costs add up quickly.
Working with a custom home builder from the initial planning stages will save you all of these extra costs. It will also save you time because everything will be ready for you as soon as your house is complete.
When you work with a custom home builder, it’s easier to ensure any safety features you desire will be well-made and ready upon arrival.
Choosing to live in a community with people who have similar lifestyles and care for their property makes it less likely that anyone who seems suspicious won’t be noticed; this helps create a safer environment for everyone who lives in the area.
When your home enjoys regular maintenance, such as yard care and snow clearing, more people will be around to monitor the property, even while you travel south for the winter. Maintenance care will also help you to prevent injuries like the potential to fall on an icy walk. Finally, the Niagara region offers high ambulance response times with one of Canada’s best health care systems.
When you decide on custom options, it is easy to bring along the factors that you feel make your home a comfortable place to live. Besides the aesthetic options mention above, such as flooring options, you’ll have the choice of adjusting the size of particular rooms or adding more.
This way, you’ll be able to guarantee the comfort of your entire family when your children and grandchildren come to visit. You may also appreciate having choices like living in an energy efficient home that provides costs benefits and helps create a more sustainable environment.

Active Living Community
One aspect of comfort that you may not have considered is how greatly an active social lifestyle will impact your health and wellness. When you choose to buy a custom-built home located in an active adult lifestyle community, you’ll gain much more than the unique options you decide to have included in your build.
Promoting an Active Lifestyle
Adult communities offer enormous incentives to seniors because they encourage a lifestyle that contributes to improved health. Staying active as you get older is one of the keys to enjoying your golden years, contributing to a longer lifespan.
Besides a friendly community of like-minded neighbours, when you partner with custom home builders in Niagara for your retirement dream home, you’ll gain access to local amenities like
- Winery Tours
- Beautiful Beaches
- Golf Courses
- Tourist Destination
- Hiking and Nature Excursions
Staying active through activities that you love can offer enormous health benefits for seniors, which is one more reason why our team at Blythwood Homes is excited about creating communities that encourage a positive and healthy lifestyle.
