What is a pocket neighbourhood?
Pioneered in its modern form by architect Ross Chapin, the pocket neighbourhood concept is inspired by the notion that people all fundamentally seek companionship; the time we spend with our spouses, friends and families helps us lead lives that are happier and more fulfilled.
By crafting enriching common spaces and transitioning the design of each home away from typical automobile-centric configurations, the end result is a community better designed for the needs of the people living there.
Ultimately, a “pocket neighbourhood” is simply a better way of ensuring our neighbourhoods become true, honest-to-goodness communities!
Each Parkhouse cluster features homes with large front verandas surrounding common xeriscaped green spaces with shared amenities, which encourages getting to know one's neighbours and enhances each resident's safety and security within the tightly-knit community.
In stark contrast to traditional developments, where streets are lined with concrete driveways and garage doors dominate the fronts of each home, traffic and utility access is kept separate from pedestrian areas by routing vehicles in through paved rear lanes.
Additionally, landscaping, snow removal, and garbage collection are all maintained on behalf of the community, enabling residents to enjoy a “lock-and-leave" lifestyle as they see fit.
The Parkhouses by Lifestyle Homes truly is active adult living at its finest. With just 31 units available in all, this exclusive community is an absolutely one-of-a-kind opportunity not to be missed!
The homes are carefully designed to accommodate homeowners' lifestyles as they grow older, and each floorplan cleverly separates spaces into public and private zones to best take advantage of the unique community concept.
Exceptionally featured, each Parkhouse includes a double car rear-attached garage, an inviting front porch, a private inner courtyard, vaulted ceilings, and upscale finishings throughout. Plus, with BuiltGreen® Platinum level construction standards and the use of durable, low-maintenance materials like James Hardie siding, home ownership has never been more care-free.
