Finding that perfect mix of a luxury home in Toronto, a welcoming community and a trusted builder is not easy. It is why when Joshua Fick discovered Lake Shore Village, he knew he had found something special.

An exclusive enclave of 73 townhomes, Lake Shore Village is nestled in the South Etobicoke community of Long Branch. Joshua is a young Toronto professional with a busy life who knew he wanted to be close to the city but also part of a neighbourhood with a village-like charm.  It is a big part of what made this the right move for him and his dog Champ.

Not even a global pandemic stood in the way of Dunpar Homes ensuring Joshua would be able to move into his 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home this past May.

“You know there were obviously some challenges given the global situation, but everybody worked very well and very diligently to get me in as soon as possible,” said Joshua.

Living the Lake Life

With the arrival of summer, he has made the most of Lake Shore Village’s amazing location. Just steps from his Georgian-style manor home there are kilometres of walking trails, beaches and sailing clubs.

There’s no shortage of places to take Champ for a quiet evening walk to pick up a smoothie at Thrive Organic Café or a Sunday stroll for freshly baked scones at the Happy Bakers.

For some fresh lake air, Joshua can take a bike ride and be at the lakefront promenade in under 5 minutes. Parking that bike afterward is easy as every unit comes with a private two-car garage.

The Personal Touch

Inside Joshua’s 1,785 square foot home he’s surrounded by the luxury finishes for which Dunpar Homes is known, including all stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, hardwood flooring, custom cabinetry, 9’6” main floor ceilings and more.

Joshua worked closely with Dunpar Homes to customise the design features of his three-storey home.

“The construction service team has been fantastic,” said Joshua. “Often times responding back to my emails or phone calls within half an hour.”

But do not try to get him to name one feature as his absolute favourite:

“It is a challenge to pick just one thing, but I would have to say the kitchen!” he said.

“Just the way it’s laid out is fantastic.  The waterfall countertops, the big island and then having access to the large deck off the back of the kitchen.”Lake Shore Village Kitchen

Flex Spaces that Work

All homes at Lake Shore Village feature large outdoor living spaces, either directly off the kitchen or in a private rooftop oasis overlooking the mature surrounding neighbourhood. The three bedrooms and open living spaces can be used as flex spaces for anything from a home office to yoga space, nursery to studio, home classroom to guest quarters.

Joshua is now all moved in, the lush landscaping around his home is complete and he’s meeting new neighbourhoods, he says Dunpar Homes continues to make sure he has been properly welcomed to the Dunpar Family.

“They really take every opportunity that they can to assist you as much as possible which is which has been fantastic.”
