Since 1977, throughout southern Ontario, Geranium has implemented a highly detailed and caring approach in all aspects of community planning, home design and construction, to provide excellence in quality and value for the future families who will live there. Geranium’s dedicated team has successfully delivered more than 8,500 new homes through innovative construction methods and materials, and choosing locations that provide access to nature, shops, schools and services that add enjoyment to daily living.

The company has showcased and been awarded for its building expertise in Durham Region, including the sold-out community Edgewood, in West Pickering, which was the first residential community in Canada to include a complete greywater recycling system. Geranium further received acclaim for Courts of Canterbury, its adult-lifestyle, bungalow and bungalow-loft community in Port Perry.

Enormously proud

Recently, Geranium was the proud winner of three 2021 Awards of Excellence by the Durham Region Home Builders’ Association (DRHBA), including the prestigious Builder of the Year (Small Volume) and Community of the Year Award for Courts of Canterbury. These awards celebrate excellence in new homes, innovative technology and construction, outstanding presentation, and marketing of projects within Durham Region.

“We’re enormously proud to receive such recognition in Durham Region, where we will be building more fine communities in the near future, including Asprey Towns, our upcoming enclave of family-sized townhomes at the doorstep to Rouge National Urban Park,” says Stephanie Lane, director of sales and marketing.

Expanding its Durham Region portfolio, in June, Geranium will launch Asprey Towns in West Pickering. This serene community features 22 exquisite family-sized townhomes in a remarkably convenient location at Altona Road and Twyn Rivers Drive. Asprey Towns will offer two- and three-storey modern layouts in spacious 24- and 30-ft.-wide configurations of approximately 2,300 to 2,600 sq. ft. of gorgeous living space. Features and finishes are suited to families in various life stages, including bright, open-concept main living levels, three generous bedrooms, two full bathrooms plus powder room(s), recreation rooms and parking for up to four vehicles. Expanding the offering is an optional four-bedroom plan, perfect for an office or study space.

Those seeking a more spacious home will appreciate the affordability and built-in value of Asprey Towns, when compared to single-detached homes in the same area.

Striking exteriors have predominantly maintenance-free clay brick exteriors, welcoming covered front entry, large windows and elegant architectural embellishments.

Ideally located, Asprey Towns is steps from an abundance of nearby schools, shops, services, public transportation and Hwys. 401 and 407, which provide access to anywhere in the GTA. The community is minutes to the preserved greenspace of Altona Forest and Rouge National Urban Park. The Pickering Waterfront Trail is a short drive away for easy outdoor enjoyment. The trail is part of the 900-km system that stretches from Niagara-on-the-Lake in the west to the Quebec boundary. Additionally, a wealth of sports clubs, recreation centres, leagues and lessons are available to all ages in locations throughout the City. Register for more information by visiting

Community of the Year

Durham Region’s Community of the Year, Courts of Canterbury, is a premier adult-lifestyle community nestled by the shores of Lake Scugog in the heart of Port Perry, and has been drawing interest from potential homebuyers across the province. Geranium’s offering of imaginative bungalow and bungalow-loft designs has led to a complete sell-out of the first two phases. The final phase of homes, released earlier this year, is also selling well and a handful of lots remain. Available homes range in size from 1,664 to 2,474 sq. ft. on 42- and 50-ft. lots, with two- and three-bedroom layouts. Each layout features modern living with large windows to maximize natural light, convenient main-floor laundry, double car garage and a main floor master bedroom retreat, complete with deluxe ensuite bathroom. All homes include luxurious features and finishes throughout.

Cradled in an established, mature setting, Courts of Canterbury includes membership with the Canterbury Commons Residents’ Association and access to The Centre – a resident-only clubhouse. Here, homeowners can swim laps in the outdoor pool, participate in a multitude of social and fitness activities, and join planned community excursions.
