Corsica Comes to Life in King City

Published on: July 27, 2012

The City of King, which lies on the Oak Ridges Moraine, a famed geological formation created by a retreating glacier, has become home to CountryWide Homes newest estate development – Corsica Estates at King.

The undulating dense forested landscape of King City, which is reminiscent of the mountainous terrain of the isle of Corsica, provides the perfect setting for this Mediterranean-inspired development.

With only 40 splendid lots, ranging from 60’ to 90’ wide and depths of up to 250’, Corsica will become CountryWide’s most exclusive estate development yet. The portfolio of homes will feature a new series of designs influenced by French and Italian architecture. The “Corsican” series will include huge picture windows, peaked and gabled roofs with copper accents and European style eaves troughs, giving a sense of volume and old world authenticity to the facades.

Spacious courtyards and lookout terraces will lead to sumptuous interiors while rear yard covered loggias, some with floor to ceiling fireplaces and outdoor kitchens will provide the perfect setting for those who enjoy entertaining guests in style. Step inside to the grandeur of large foyers where you’ll find expansive ceilings in a variety of styles including cathedral, coffered, waffle and other fine mouldings, giving the homes a European flare.

Stunning gourmet kitchens with professional-grade appliances, complemented by full height cabinetry and oversized granite or quartz islands, will allow your family and guests to convene while you prepare delicious culinary delights.

The standard features of these homes will be equivalent to those often found in custom homes. This can be evidenced by visiting CountryWide Homes 6500 sq. ft. showroom.

Once you’ve decided to purchase a Corsican home, you’ll meet your personal design consultant who will work with you to peruse the thousands of options available while giving the design consultant the opportunity to better understand your lifestyle needs and desires.

Prior to the physical construction of the home, your design consultant will welcome you back for a structural appointment which will allow you once again, to meet the design consultant and architect if necessary. During this stage, they review structural needs such as electrical, plumbing, layout enhancements, moulding, trim, windows, doors, stone — virtually anything that deals with the shell or structural elements of the home, which can be very difficult to change once the house is under construction.

During the construction phase, buyers are scheduled back to discuss and select their features and finishes. By this time, the design consultant has a very good appreciation of your lifestyle needs and what you are looking for. This deep understanding allows the consultant to effectively help you select everything from kitchen cabinetry to faucets, tiles, granite, paint, flooring, pickets and more.

If you want to enjoy the luxury of living amongst the serenity and peace of the countryside while being steps away from access to the GTA via HWY 400 or King City Go Transit, then Corsica should be the community you move up to.
