The boundaries of this district are at Highbury Avenue North between the North Thames River and Fanshawe Park Road. Cedar Hollow is relatively far from the downtown core of the city (about a fifteen-minute drive), but the location is near a few major roads, making it easily accessible to the rest of the city. Nature surrounds this area, from wetlands to rivers and trails this area is perfect for families who enjoy the outdoors.
The properties for sale in this area are mostly detached homes of varying sizes and two to five bedroom, double-storey condominiums. Many of the houses can be purchased off the plan with standard, premium and custom options available to potential residents.
Most of the standard options have been outlined in Ontario’s home development codes. This means that appealing ceramic floor tiles, high-density carpets and wide trim baseboards all come at no extra cost. An option to request colour blocking in kitchen and bedroom walls is also available.
Premium features on offer in most homes in Cedar Hollow require an adjustment in home ownership budget. These features include a cold cellar, vista windows, French doors and tall (9′) main floor ceilings. Home security, reinforced doors, smoke detectors, CCTV cameras and fire alarms are also among the options available at the premium level.
Custom features represent high-end embellishments added to the home. In this case, most developers will allow buyers to work directly with the designers and other members of the development team. This ensures buyers the best combination of features that work into their budget. This process includes determining how many kitchens the home should have, which direction the doors should face, the size of the living room, bedrooms and bathrooms – among other aspects. The custom option also provides the freedom to choose the materials used for finishing. Of course, with custom building comes custom prices. These added features will require homeowners to top up the developer’s original asking prices.
