Winter is the Perfect Time to Be Thinking about Summer Lake!

Summer Lake-2-548283-editedThe calendar may tell you that it’s winter, but if you’ve ever dreamed about owning a home on the lake in the Ontario area, now is the perfect time to be thinking about Summer Lake! 

Just a mile and a half from Webster, you’ll find Summer Lake, our newest quality community. If you’re looking for room to spread out, you’ll enjoy up to half- acre home sites that are available now and ready for building.  Add to that beautiful views (most sites have a view of nearby Lake Ontario), a quick 10-minute drive to great shopping, and delightful lake breezes in the summer, and it’s hard to imagine a better, more tranquil spot to build an affordable new home.

The town of Ontario, on the south bank of Lake Ontario, dates back to 1807. Its modest population of about 10,000 residents captures and retains that small town feel that so many families are looking for. Ontario is a close-knit community with top-notch academic opportunities for students in grades K–12.

But why think about Summer Lake in the middle of winter? Building your new home isn’t just an activity—it’s a process. The cold winter months are a great time to think through exactly what you want in your new home and to look over designs and plans to settle on the floor plan that fits your specific taste and lifestyle. Starting to think about that process now gives you more time to ask your builder questions and to make sure that you and your builder are on the same page. That will make the construction part of the process go that much more smoothly.

New Home Communities in Rochester NY Area

Posted by John Graziose on Wed, May 30, 2012 @ 13:05 PM

Canandaigua NY new home communityThere’s a phrase traveling around that’s probably as old as the hills, but makes more sense than ever now.  It’s “Quality of Life.”

We judge our “Quality of Life” a number of ways.  Certainly family, health, and happiness, are many people’s Top Three.  But HOW we achieve these must be equally important.

Career, Home, and Recreation, factor into this process.  For instance,

  • Do we love our work?
  • Does our home fit the needs of our family?
  • Does the location of our home and work leave us enough time to relax and enjoy life?

Keeping these factors in mind, Gerber Homes of Rochester NY carefully chose the locations for their communities.  These include:

  • Webster NY
  • Ontario NY
  • Victor NY
  • Canandaigua NY
  • Sodus NY
  • Marion, East Bloomfield, and Huron NY

Gerber Homes chose locations that show a promising future for growth and development.  For  instance, Webster NY as a vibrant Chamber of Commerce that carefully invites businesses that will enhance that community.  From this Town Center shopping was born.  Visitors from as far as Toronto Canada will come by bus, stopping at Town Center on their way to the Finger Lakes region.  Webster has earned the rank of Sports Town USA, boasting more ball fields per capita than any town around.  Throw in the Aquatic Center, Hockey Rink, Marching Band, and proximity to water recreation, and Webster is the total package.

Same for Canandaigua and Victor NY.  Both communities are vibrant, growing, and close to business and shopping.  No more long commutes.  And when it’s time to relax, you have Canandaigua Lake and the Wine Region at your finger tips.

So why should you visit one of Gerber Homes’ many model homes in these communities?  Because Gerber Homes has been building new homes for over 50 years.  They study trends, and know where a new community will bloom.  Where people can:

  • Have the easiest commute to work
  • Live in a home that is tailor-made to fit their needs
  • Enjoy their leisure time
