Gleason Manors is a new pre-construction semi-detached home development by Mackenzie Hall Homes located in Newmarket. Newmarket is a well established and prosperous suburb to the north of Toronto. This is a town perfectly situated for a retiree, young family or investor that wants to take advantage of the charming lifestyle that this area of Ontario provides. Historically speaking Newmarket developed thanks to its position on Toronto’s famous north-south thoroughfare of Yonge St. Yonge St, Bayview Ave, Leslie St and Bathurst St. all begin in Toronto and continue north through Newmarket so while you are safely at a distance from the “Big Smoke” while in Newmarket, you are connected to it as well.
Newmarket is the final substantial built up area of the General Toronto Area as you travel north from Toronto to Lake Simcoe. This means that north of Newmarket is shining Lake Simcoe, a long time vacation and leisure destination for wealthier Torontonians. Head east and west of Newmarket and you can find semi-rural areas with some agricultural usage but conservation preserves and many golf courses. Newmarket itself is a largely suburban community in built form but the new pre-construction semi-detached home development of Gleanson Manors follows the current trend towards greater density.
Newmarket is the kind of place where Main Street is literally called Main St. Newmarket’s town center is a very quaint environment that is a true and increasingly rare demonstration of that old cliché “small town charm”. In Newmarket’s town center you can find copious dining and café options, as well as the Fairy Lake and Wesley brooks Conservation Area, both connecting to the town centre from the south. Newmarket’s Riverwalk Commons serves as the connector piece between Main St. and this natural oasis and All Our Kids playground rounds out the area with a family friendly option.
Parents of young children can rest assured that multiple hospitals can be found in Newmarket. Both Southlake Regional Hospital and Glox General Hospital are high quality facilities. The presences of high quality public schools in Newmarket will also lend peace of mind to local young families and retirees. Big box shopping can be done on Newmarket’s east and west outskirts where there are more stereotypically suburban neighborhouuds that back up against Walmarts, Canadian Tire, Home Depot, Costco and Leons. Upper Canada Mall is the largest indoor shopping mall in Newmarket and makes a great wintertime complement to Main St.
