When an excited, and knowledgeable, new home buyer voluntarily becomes a de facto ‘salesperson’, as a builder you can feel confident that yours is one very special neighbourhood.
“I can’t recommend something that I don’t believe in,” says Evelyn Matson, who has encouraged friends and family to come and see the stunning Model Homes at West Shore Beach Club on Lake Couchiching near Orillia.
Happily for Summerhill Homes, Evelyn has more than one reason to be enamoured with West Shore where she and her husband have recently purchased their new home.
Looking to downsize from her current home with its ‘monster’ garden to something more maintenance-free, Evelyn wanted to move back to the water where they had been some years ago but thought the upkeep would make that impossible. Richard wasn’t ready to give up his yard and hobby space for a condo. Then they discovered West Shore Beach Club. “It just seemed right for us,” says Evelyn. “It gives us a no-maintenance place, it gives us the water, a garage and yard. Plus we have the choice to spend time away in winter without worrying.”
Evelyn’s husband, Richard Matson is ‘in the trades’ so he’s in the know when it comes to assessing quality materials and building techniques and for him as a construction professional, it’s all thumbs up for West Shore. “I keep asking and he just keeps nodding that everything’s excellent,” says Evelyn, adding, “He’s really excited.”
The Matson’s son and daughter-in-law have accompanied the delighted couple to West Shore Beach Club and given their enthusiastic seal of approval, as have Evelyn’s cousin’s wife as well as her sister-in law and numerous friends. Evelyn is a member of Lake Country harmony, an Orillia-based women’s barbershop chorus, and informed her fellow members about their new home excitement.
Summerhill Homes is offering a wide selection of over 20 remarkable elevations at West Shore Beach Club. The Matsons chose The Dunes Elevation B bungalow. Construction has begun and the couple were pleased that there was some flexibility to adjust the plan to meet their family’s specific needs.
It was the water and the community’s beautiful 300-ft sandy beach that cinched the decision for the Matsons, who hope to have a view of the water from their customized 9’ x 14’ deck. “Being on the water was so important for us. Just looking at the water reduces your stress level by 50%,” she laughs. Evelyn pictures taking her morning coffee and sitting on the beach by Lake Couchiching, or on the rooftop viewing deck of the Marine House.
With construction underway and models to view, it doesn’t take much imagination to visualize Evelyn doing just that. No wonder she can’t help telling everyone she meets all about West Shore Beach Club.
