This summer, Kylemore Communities launched its "Privileges Program" – an innovative perk that will reward those who buy a new Kylemore home during the coming year with discounts at selected retailers, golf courses, restaurants, décor and moving companies, as well as a special homeowner referral program. New-home buyers at any of Kylemore’s current communities can now register to receive a Privileges Program card to present when making purchases from the program partners. Currently, the Privileges Program partners include Niche Décor in Unionville, Angus Glen Golf Club, Markham Green Golf Club, The Brick, Nava Restaurant & Bar, Brix Napa Valley Grille & Wine Bar, Kennedy Greenhouses, and AMJ Campbell Van Lines.
"We are proud to partner with these fine firms in providing our homeowners with special treatment," says Kylemore President Patrick O’Hanlon." In addition to receiving exclusive discounts, when Kylemore homeowners enter their purchases online, they are automatically entered into a contest to win great prizes ranging from sporting activities to state-of-the-art electronics, and dinner for two at a noted restaurant in their area.The new Privileges Program also includes a referral component, as Kylemore Communities enjoys a substantial percentage of sales that result from referrals from existing homeowners. "This kind of loyalty is gratifying," says O’Hanlon. "We feel strongly about building master-planned communities where families live and play together, and homeowners often bring in family members and friends who are so enchanted with the homes and the lifestyle, they decide to purchase too."
To reward this level of confidence, when a Kylemore homeowner refers someone who purchases at one of the company’s communities, both the homeowner and the referral receive $1,000 to spend at the company’s décor centre. Over the next 12 months, Kylemore will provide homeowners with regular updates about added privileges and partnership programs.
Port of Newcastle
The Privileges Program is already a hit at Port of Newcastle – Kylemore’s master-planned, picturesque community on the shores of Lake Ontario. Residents appreciate cottage-style living in these charming homes on 36-, 38-, 43-, 45- and 55-ft. lots. And now, homeowners are enjoying the newly completed, elegantly appointed Admiral’s Walk Clubhouse, which overlooks the Port of Newcastle marina, just steps from the shoreline. The clubhouse counts among its exciting amenities which include a 260-slip marina, beach volleyball and tennis courts, a swimming pool, hot tub, well-equipped fitness centre, billiards, private theatre with big-screen TV and surround sound, private library/conference room and an elegant banquet venue.
Port of Newcastle also lies adjacent to conservation land trails and parks to the west, and parks and the Waterfront Trail along the shoreline. All of this – and the community is within commuting distance to Toronto!
Within this scenic setting, Kylemore’s homes feature luxurious open-concept interiors with varying combinations of large windows, imported ceramics, oak staircases and nine-ft. ceilings. Some models feature a tandem garage with boat storage. Plus, Kylemore homes can be customized based on individual needs and preferences.
The bungalows and two-storey homes at Port of Newcastle range in size from 1,300 to 4,000 sq. ft. and are priced from the $270’s. Be sure to tour the two spectacular model homes, which showcase the company’s design flair and construction excellence. The 3,800-sq.-ft. model home is appointed by Jean Bisnaire of Niche Décor in Unionville and Elaine Shea of Lane Custom Designs Inc. to illustrate firsthand how cottage-style elements can be paired with urban influences in this captivating locale.
The principals in Kylemore Communities have led the way in the art of fine home building for more than two decades. Kylemore is the renowned builder of master-planned Angus Glen in Markham, and has built more than 10,000 homes across North America.
