Stone & South: The Condominium Cottage Life
As humans, we always recognize the importance of place. A common question that usually follows after meeting someone new is "where's home for you?"
There is no place quite like home.
From empty-nesters seeking to downsize, to city-dwellers hoping to embrace waterfront living, many Ottawans and Torontonians are considering Stone & South their soon-to-be home.
CaraCo Development's aspiring condominium project, Stone & South, is bringing condo-style living to the very cottagesque town of Gananoque. Conveniently located from Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto, Gananoque is the ideal summer destination for those seeking an authentic Adirondack experience on the St.Lawrence River.
CaraCo Development Corporation, a subsidary of CaraCo Group of Companies, is Kingston, Ontario’s most trusted homebuilder operating independently since 1986. The first phase of their exclusive dockside residence, Stone & South, will feature a 6-story building and 41 luxury open-concept suites.
A quick tour of the town will have you notice that Gananoque is made up of beautifully preserved and recently restored buildings. Chamberlain Architect of Burlington designed the condominium with this in mind, as the red brick and limestone exterior compliment the town's commitment to preserving its heritage.
Each suite is complete with high-end standard features and finishes that embrace both urban and nautical elements. Buyers can work with the developers to customize their suite in order to create a space that is uniquely their own. The majority of suites feature a unique ‘flex space’ — a design option that allows you flexibility with the design of your home. Your flex space can be whatever you want it to be including a den, an office, an extra bedroom, a library, or even just comfortable open space.
With floor-to-ceiling windows and a spacious 8' deep balcony that overlooks the water and its wide horizon you will never tire of having the river as your backdrop.
Building amenities include a fitness centre, social room, outdoor bbq area, off-leash dog park, on-site concierge, private marina and more! Boat slips suitable for 30-, 35- or 40-foot personal watercraft are also available. Storage for kayaks and canoes is being built into the complex, and docks will provide easy access to the water for those wishing to swim or fish.
Living at Stone & South is as laid-back as it is luxurious.
Take it from Ottawa couple, Luc and Tessie Lalonde, who have recently chosen Stone & South for future retirement living. “We love the water, and really wanted our retirement home to be easy to maintain," said Luc. “We took a few boat cruises and a nice drive along Hwy 2 through the area to see where the best view was, and we thought the community was very nice."
Milborne Group's Regional Director Mariah Hamilton said, "[Stone & South] caters to those wanting to live the condominium lifestyle on the water."
Having recently visited the picturesque town of Gananoque and the Stone & South condo project, I cannot imagine a place that offers the same degree of convenience and comfort. Stone & South offers the convenience of living in a city as well as the comforts of a cottage.
