The Stonewall New Home Lifestyle


Offering more, for less…

These days, home buyers are searching for a viable alternative to city living. Little wonder. Of late, calling Winnipeg home has become an expensive proposition. Rising housing costs and an ever-increasing tax burden have seen to that. Add in the fact that one of Winnipeg’s main drawing cards – easy travel around the city – has all but disappeared due to endless construction. Getting around town has become a stress-filled ordeal. That begs the question: where can home buyers find affordable, high-quality living that offers a better, more enjoyable lifestyle? Stonewall’s newest – and most complete – community, Quarry Ridge Park, that’s where. Situated at the southwest boundary of Stonewall featuring gorgeous prairie views, Ventura Land Company designed Quarry Ridge Park around 24-plus acres of natural prairie grasslands and pristine oak forest. The natural setting will feature miles of walking trails winding through the area, generous park spaces for kids to play in – and seamless connectivity to all the amenities in town. However, as spectacular as the setting will be, the variety of housing options offered in Quarry Ridge Park figure to be just as spectacular. Designed with mixed density in mind, Quarry Ridge Park will offer an unprecedented range of housing options from entry-level, all the way up to well-appointed luxury homes. Young families just starting out can choose an affordable duplex or multi-family condo, while more established families will be able find a beautiful single-family home that fits their needs and budget with ease. At the same time, empty nesters looking to downsize to a quiet community that offers an active lifestyle will be able to buy a well-appointed apartment-style unit in an exclusive, luxury retirement community. In short, there will be something for everyone in Quarry Ridge Park. Best of all – if you’re looking to build your dream home – lots will be superior to those found in the city. Not only will they be far more affordable, but they will be significantly larger at 50 to 65 feet wide, making for wider side yards, increased privacy and more space for kids to play in complete freedom and safety. And with three schools – from public, to private – offering K-12 programming right in town, your kids will never have to leave Stonewall to get a quality education. As for recreation, there’s no shortage of sports facilities in town, either. The presence of Veterans Sports Complex, Stonewall Arena, a curling rink and Kinsman Baseball Field means that kids – and parents – can take part in a wide array of sporting activities just minutes from home. There’s also an abundance of recreational areas and attractions in and around Stonewall: Quarry Park, Kinsman Lake/Beach and Oak Hammock Marsh among them. The town’s location also allows for quick access to cottage country in the Interlake, while the wide-open surroundings are ideal for snowmobiling. Stonewall is also a full-service community, which means a host of services is just minutes from your front door. You can do all your grocery shopping in town, enjoy seamless access to daycare, be mere minutes from your doctor, dentist or chiropractor – and the hospital, library and many fine restaurants are also nearby. Then, there’s the commute to work or activities in the city. Instead of taking congested routes to work through the city every day, you can enjoy effortless flow into the city via a two-lane highway, making for a commute that’s far less stressful. For many, it provides them solace on the way to and from the city. Imagine: you can put on the cruise control and unwind as you take the free-flowing highway into the city and back home, knowing there’s no bumper-to-bumper traffic to deal with. Any residual stress from the day then fades away as you arrive home to a community that’s safe, quiet and complete in every way. Your kids will have spent the day in spacious, modern schools and your family is surrounded by friendly, like-minded neighbours who share your passion for convenient, uncomplicated small-town living. You’re free to enjoy your home in a beautiful, vibrant and well-appointed community that offers a lifestyle – and range of housing options – that’s second to none. It’s time you came home to Quarry Ridge Park.
