YOUNG COUPLE FINDS PET-FRIENDLY FAMILY HOME AT GREAT PRICE POINT

Erin and Will Runciman needed more space. Their Fergus condo had been the perfect size for them, but it was just too small for their Great Dane, Moose and the family they planned on starting. They considered resale homes and building a home themselves before they checked out the Strathlea Fergus models. “The price point, the layout that was great for kids, dogs and entertaining, and the fact that we were adjacent to the country were what sold us,” says Will. “We were even able to keep the condo as a rental.”

The couple, baby Ava and Moose are happily settled in the 1,849 square foot Elgin model that Will refers to as, “The biggest small house you’re ever going to find.” A real selling feature was the master suite which includes a spacious walk-in closet and a luxurious ensuite bathroom. The house also boasts 2 other good sized bedrooms with generous closets, 9’ main floor ceilings, a garage with high ceiling that allows for all kinds of extra storage, and a full unfinished basement. Additionally, the family has been enjoying “fantastic sunsets” and Strathlea Community Park. “The park is cool,” says Will. “It really is an added bonus and Ava loves the swing.”

“Fergus is an awesome small town and there is a good sense of community here. We’ve met lots of people from walking the dog,” adds Will. As for their experience with MacPherson Builders, “I would definitely recommend them,” concludes Will.

RETIRED COUPLE FINDS THE HOME AND LIFESTYLE THEY’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR AT STRATHLEA FERGUS.

Lois Andrews had been on a quest to find her dream home for a very long time. “My friends were getting pretty tired of me saying that I hadn’t found my bungalow yet,” she jokes. “But our house in Mississauga had 3 finished floors and a pool and was too big and too much work for Val (Lois’s husband) and I.”

After discovering Strathlea Fergus on the Internet, the couple decided to check the community out. “We knew nothing about Fergus, but we knew that the Rowan floorplan was the house we wanted at the price we wanted to pay,” says Lois.

“We like the airiness, layout and size of this house and that we don’t have to go up and down stairs,” continues Lois. Other favourite features include the openness of the kitchen and dinette, the laundry room off the kitchen, the walk-in pantry and the Jacuzzi tub in the ensuite master bathroom. “We love everything about this house. There’s not one thing we’d change,” says Lois.

“This move has been great for us. We enjoy Fergus and the quality of life we have here. Everyone is so obliging and friendly. It’s small town living, not at all like Toronto. I went to Mississauga the other day and I couldn’t wait to get back,” adds Lois. Having built previous homes, Lois and Val have been very impressed with the level of service they have received. “Every time I called about something it was done. MacPherson has really looked after us,” concludes Lois.

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT FOR A YOUNG FAMILY WHO NEEDS ROOM TO LIVE AND PLAY.

Victoria and Matthew Bancroft knew it was time for a change. After years of highway commuting from the Cambridge townhouse that they and their two young daughters were rapidly outgrowing, they started searching the internet for larger homes that would be a shorter, less stressful drive to their jobs in Guelph and Milton.

“When we originally checked out Strathlea, there were only two model homes and fields,” says Matthew. “But we really liked what we saw and we fell in love with the Highland floor plan – especially the large front porch, the bay windows and the fact that the lot was private and backed onto mature trees. And the price was good.”

Since moving in at the end of August, the Bancrofts have been enjoying their new home, Strathlea Park -the community’s fully accessible playground, and the town. “It’s beautiful to have space,” continues Matthew. “We have 9 foot ceilings on the main level, a dining room, 4 bedrooms and our whole family loves playing in our large yard. And Fergus is very welcoming.

There are lots of young families in the neighbourhood and the girls have made loads of friends at school. They’ve never been invited to so many birthday parties!”

“We’ve had a great experience with MacPherson Builders,” concludes Matthew. “We would definitely buy another home from them.”
