Kilworth Development Offers Variety
Homebuyers seeking a tranquil natural environment with urban amenities at the doorstep may find what they’re looking for in Kilworth Heights West, a new community being developed by Tridon Group.
Nestled in the lower Thames River Valley, west of London and bordering Komoka Provincial Park, the community combines country living with big-city convenience. “The location is excellent for so many people,” says Don de Jong, principal at Tridon Group. “You have outdoor amenities to the south and along the river. There are a lot of paths and hiking trails to enjoy. You also have a community and sports connection with the municipal centre. And for ease of getting around or through London, we’re well positioned.”

MAGNUS HOMES | Suitable for first-time buyers and empty nesters one-floor, vacant-land condos will be available at Kilworth Heights.
The development – which will be comprised of single-family homes, freehold townhomes and vacant land condos, as well as high density residential – is also designed to encompass luxury homes in a more affordable price range (from low $400s to circa $700,000). “We have some of the best value in the Greater London Area,” de Jong says. “Our builders are competitive and we are very attractive for our value. I don’t think our price point can be beat.”
Builders are onboard with those goals. “Our vision is to provide younger families homes with unique design and luxury living features at an economical cost,” says Phil Alves, construction manager with Millstone Homes, building detached homes in the community. “We have options ranging from pre-determined plans at economical prices and standard packages up to fully custom design homes with our in-house designer.”
Jason Froude, sales representative for Eldorado Homes, says the goal is to “make entry homes more affordable while maintaining the high living standards already established in Kilworth.” Eldorado, he says, will be building primarily two-storey detached homes but with options to build custom one-storey houses.
Representing both Forever Homes and Jefferson Homes, project manager Jeff Fung says his builders recognize the value of the location. “Our vision for the community is to be an oasis away from the city, where residents can kick back and relax, where families are able to enjoy the conveniences of London with the warmth of a small town.”
Forever Homes, Fung says, is providing homes suitable for first-time buyers or growing families, with “luxurious finishes and a warm touch.” In the same line, Jefferson is offering “affordable luxury homes with spacious floor plans and featuring exquisite custom finishes, great for family gatherings.”
Margaret Carville, owner of Rockmount Homes, agrees, “It’s ideal for families to be able to get into the countryside and in an affordable community with a high-end ambiance.” This builder is constructing one- and two-storey attached homes. She notes that there are no condo fees, so buyers own both home and property.
Marco Palumbo, owner of Palumbo Homes, calls the development “a fantastic large-scale master-planned community that is perfect for every demographic.” He is planning to build two- and three-storey townhouse condominiums with modern contemporary interiors.
Magnus Homes is adding diversity to the community’s options, building single-storey vacant land condominiums, according to spokesperson Jaime Crncich. “These are focused towards those at the beginning and end of the homeowner experience.
Options range from first-time home buyers looking to enter the market at a reasonable price to retirees who are looking to downsize without sacrificing the luxuries of a quality home.” The first building phase for the community is nearly complete and Tridon is moving quickly into Phase 2. “It’s being very well received,” says de Jong.
The finished development will also incorporate a park and a commercial area. Creation of the parkland is underway and will include a soccer field and play area. De Jong says the two commercial zones – one four-acre and another eight-acre block – should be underway later this year. These will be mixed use areas potentially comprising restaurants, shops, office space and lighter retail, he says.
