Hayride tours of the 80 hectare site will showcase the developing trail system, ponds, and water features. The project has consciously replicated the look and feel (detached garages, rear lanes, porches and gables) of the traditional housing stock of central Peterborough. The streetscapes reflect an old-time aesthetic, but everything is modern when it comes to providing the homeowners with the highest performance in water conservation, energy efficiency and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

Each Avonlea home is ENERGY STAR® qualified, meaning they incorporate energy saving features like top-quality insulation, high-performance windows and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems which can reduce energy bills by up to 30%.  Visit www.masonhomes.ca for details.
