Active living, naturally: Introducing Greystone’s new Campus Trails’ community

 

Imagine a community focused on healthy, active living—one that offers modern convenience while also embracing nature, that brings together residences and wellness services, and that is just five minutes from downtown Huntsville. That is what Pat Dubé, owner of Greystone, is doing with Campus Trails.

Located on 32 acres just to the north of the Huntsville Hospital grounds, Campus Trails will be a blended development that includes condominium suites, townhomes, and single-family homes, wellness centres with a variety of health-related services, gardens, hiking trails, and lots of the forest that Muskokans love.

Development will occur in phases. You may have already noticed the road construction occurring off Muskoka Road 3 which will lead to the future Fairvern Nursing Home site and, beyond that, the Campus Trails community. Construction of the Campus Trails medical professional buildings will begin this summer and the first residential condominium building will start to take shape this fall with occupancy expected in 2020.

Campus Trails is a natural extension for Greystone. The first residential building on the Campus Trails site will be the company’s seventeenth condominium build. Greystone also built Huntsville’s Algonquin Grace Residential Hospice in a community-supported project and is currently working on a similar hospice project in Port Carling. They have built retirement homes, fire halls and vet clinics. Greystone donated five acres of land from the Campus Trails site for the new Fairvern Nursing Home build. Pat is on the Board of Directors at the Huntsville Hospital Foundation and Greystone was one of the first two companies to support the foundation’s Business Cares program, a fundraising initiative that now has 52 companies on board for a total contribution of $1,300,000.

“We’ve had a strong focus on care-related facilities because it’s such a segue from our condos, and it just makes a lot of sense with our background,” says Pat.

Designed for active adults and seniors, The Tom, the first condominium building in the Campus Trails community, offers a carefree solution for those who want to spend more time on living.

It’s also an affordable option.

The Tom suites start at $280,000, which is “below the average selling price of a home in Huntsville,” notes Pat, and because of its efficient construction, condo fees are also lower than average making it an attractive alternative to other types of home ownership.

The Tom is a three-storey building with eleven different styles of suites that range in size from 813 sq. ft. to 1,319 sq. ft. Modern construction with efficient concrete floors and walls makes for lower costs and greater soundproofing. There is a heated underground parking garage—no more brushing snow from your car—with elevator access to each floor.

Residents will have access to walking and biking trails, community gardens and a greenhouse, as well as variety of wellness services like massage, yoga, physicians, physiotherapy, and a pharmacy. And in the future, they may also have the assistance of a health concierge, who would be available to take people to appointments or keep an eye on things if the owners go away.
