ista Flats and Towns is an exciting and innovative new neighbourhood in Stouffville offering an incredible home ownership opportunity, one that’s perfect for first-time home buyers. Olivia and Colin were among the first to purchase from Geranium Homes, choosing a 1,016 sq.ft. condominium one-level flat. With advice from their experienced Realtor and the support of their parents, the couple feel they’ve made a good investment for their future together and are looking forward to enjoying a brand new home with space enough for two. Vista’s desirable location minutes from public transit, Stouffville’s vibrant downtown, parks and trails combined

Each has a balcony or patio. Two different floorplans are offered in sizes measuring 894 sq.ft. and 1016 sq. ft. “We love the design of the space, it is open concept and all that we need, while still giving us the opportunity to expand our family when we take that next step,” explain Olivia and Colin. Two-storey towns are perched on the second and third levels and also boast open concept living/ dining areas which flow into the kitchen. The main level, where a convenient powder room is located, has 9-foot ceiling heights. Upstairs are two bedrooms, a bathroom and laundry.
