Spend More Time Living
People truly thrive when they live in a beautiful home, set in a friendly, secure community surrounded by nature. Years ago, the Sifton family instinctively knew that active older adults would appreciate a carefully planned residential neighbourhood in London that could help them fully enjoy the next chapter of their lives. They envisioned a new community that would appeal to an interesting mix of residents: nature lovers, golf enthusiasts, bookworms and social butterflies.
Many decades later, the vision for RiverBend Golf Community has been realized, and upon completion it will be comprised of more than 450 homes built through and around the RiverBend golf course. With both attached villas and single family homes available on a number of spectacular lots, including several properties available along the golf course’s 15th green, a gorgeous spot overlooking a large pond. Green spaces, quiet streets and the harmonious architecture of the homes contribute to RiverBend’s peaceful setting.
“Residents have really embraced all that RiverBend has to offer,” says Rick Gooyers, executive vice president of Sifton Properties Limited. One aspect homebuyers appreciate is how far their money goes in RiverBend’s upscale community. “Many of our new residents are moving here from the Greater Toronto Area. They are astounded that they can get so much more home and lifestyle just down Highway 401,” Gooyers says.
All homes at RiverBend are designed and built by Sifton Properties Limited, now celebrating 95 years of homebuilding success in the London and surrounding area. The collection of one-floor homes starts in the mid $300’s. Single detached homes range from 1,812- to 2,548-square-feet and attached villas from 1,534- to 1,756-square-feet. All designs incorporate spacious, intelligently laid out kitchens and great rooms, soaring ceilings and master retreats with luxurious appointments. Large windows look onto the attractive neighbourhood. Covered porches encourage sitting and enjoying the view.
Residents soon discover they have more time and opportunity to do the things they really love. RiverBend’s year-round professional grounds staff keep the landscaping immaculate throughout the community. That frees up residents from lawnmowing, snow shoveling and other yardwork.
The Community Clubhouse is the hub of RiverBend. Residents and their guests can relax in the dining room and savour meals prepared by our excellent culinary chef. The indoor swimming pool and fitness facilities make exercising convenient and accessible year-round. People can also choose to participate in regularly scheduled social clubs, including games nights, darts, pools and billiards. There’s also RiverBend on the Road travel excursions, the speakers’ series, bridge clubs, book club and creative therapy knitting and sewing.
Golfing enthusiasts can be seen teeing off at RiverBend Golf Course. The intriguing 18-hole golf course was designed by Doug Carrick of Carrick Design Inc., a leading Canadian golf course architect. The course has 5 sets of tee blocks to accommodate those that are just beginning the game or those who have played for many years.
“It’s great that a community of people who are approximately in the same age group have so many chances to form new friendships and explore new interests at this stage of life,” Gooyers observes. “Residents often tell us that moving here has given them a fresh beginning.”
