FYathome Enjoy the unhurried life in a Holitzner Homes community by Jane Whiting Just like any other homebuyer, the active boomer generation has a wide range of living requirements and a host of different reasons for moving to a new home. To accommodate this, Holitzner Homes has a selection of spacious bungalows and elegant townhomes, as well as single homes, in a number of desirable communities to ideally suit retired or older buyers who continue to have an independent and vibrant lifestyle. While many seniors may be downsizing from high-maintenance family houses, they still want a quality home with lots of style in a great location, said Carmen Fleguel, President of Holitzner Homes. “We see a lot of movement to a more convenient home layout with upgraded features. Not everyone is looking for adult-only living – some prefer a community that has a mix of residents. They may be moving to be closer to adult children and grandchildren, or looking for a new bungalow or a townhome with less property to care for.” For 50 years Holitzner has been providing generations of families with award-winning homes and has the experience to know what it takes to make a home affordable and beautifully functional for any lifestyle. Take a look at their community of homes in prime locations which combine the benefits of both country and city living in Carp, Stittsville, Kanata and Barrhaven. If you want an unhurried lifestyle with all the charms of a small town, head over to Hidden Lakes Estates in Carp. It’s a new private enclave of heritage-inspired homes, including large bungalows with luxury features, spacious rooms, oversized windows and bigger than average garages. Just 10 minutes from Kanata or Stittsville, the village of Carp has a relaxed town spirit that allows you to get to know your neighbours and enjoy leisurely chats when you visit the local village shops, restaurants, businesses and churches. Play tennis, golf or go curling at the nearby recreation facilitates and arena, and take leisurely walks in the surrounding countryside and many parks. Not only does Carp offer modern amenities and big city conveniences in a pastoral setting, the village also boasts one of Ontario’s top medical centres and a range of other health services. There are dentists and a chiropractor, plus physio and massage therapy services and much more. Deer Run in Landswood Way on Stittsville’s south side is another distinctive Holitzner community with new designs of bungalows and main floor master homes in a peaceful neighbourhood setting. These homes offer the latest in comfort and convenience to suit any lifestyle. Stittsville also balances the advantages of a small-town with urban amenities and rural attractions. This community has convenient access to Kanata and the city of Ottawa by car, OC Transpo and shuttle services, while being surrounded by nature, close to many excellent golf courses and exciting entertainment at Scotiabank Place. Brookside is Holitzner’s newest townhome community. Located in popular Kanata, the townhomes are 22 to 24 feet wide and there are 11 beautiful models to choose from. Smaller bungalow designs for single senior residents are also available in their Barrhaven community. Whatever community of Holitzner Homes appeals to you, be assured that all designs are built with top quality materials using solid craftsmanship and advanced technology to guarantee the best in modern amenities. Holitzner also take great pride in their excellent customer service and want all their homeowners to be completely satisfied with their experience.
