Introducing Bayview Valley – a new collection of “French traditional townhomes” in a high demand area of Richmond Hill.
Bayview Valley is a collection of 93 townhomes in a style the developer refers to as “French traditional”. The new community will be located on the north side of Elgin Mills Rd East, a little to the east of Bayview Avenue. It’s a quiet area with parks and conservation areas giving it an almost country-like feel. Because of this, a number of lots are expected to back onto a wooded ravine – a premium feature. It’s not often that new ravine-view homes are built in the GTA and so this is likely to create a lot of interest in this project.
The homes have a beautiful look based on traditional French architecture – giving them a real elegance. Inside, each home has three floors of indoor space – a ground floor with an attached garage, a main floor, and an upper floor with three bedrooms. In some layouts a fourth bedroom is added on the ground floor. Attached garages come in two forms: single garages accessed from the front of the home and real-lane double garages. All the garages will have direct access to the home where grade allows. Each home has a large rooftop terrace and these range in size from 426 to 995 square feet so will be perfect for family dinners in the summer, hosting friends, or just enjoying the fresh air.
Bayview Valley is situated just north of the family-friendly Richmond Hill neighbourhood known as Rouge Woods and close to a variety of amenities. A few minutes to the east is Richmond Green Park – the largest park in Richmond Hill, which plays host to many of the town’s major events and also has facilities for various sports – including a hockey arena. For shopping and daily errands, there are options in almost every direction, with several large shopping plazas nearby and the shops of downtown Richmond Hill just a few minutes’ drive away.
With lots of new development going on in the area north of Elgin Mills Rd between Bayview Avenue and Leslie Street, a new elementary school will be built in the near future to service the new residents. In the meantime, Bayview Valley is in the holding area for Silver Pines Elementary School (ranked 503/3064 in Ontario). Meanwhile, the local high school is the high-regarded Richmond Green Secondary School, which is currently ranked in the top 100 out of all secondary schools in Ontario. A little farther north along Bayiew Ave, close to 19th Ave., is the prestigious co-Ed Holy Trinity School, an institution with a longstanding history of excellence and results.
As Bayview Valley is close to the intersection of Bayview and Elgin Mills, there are excellent public transit options provided by Viva bus services operating nearby. For anyone travelling to downtown Toronto, Richmond Hill GO train station is just a six-minute drive away and has regular services running to Union Station every weekday morning, with the journey taking approximately 45 minutes.
