Wide Open Spaces

Natural Setting Defines New Community
EdgeWater Estates, a community nestled along the banks of the Thames River in the town of Kilworth on London's western border.
The feeling of being surrounded by nature and having room to breathe can be difficultto- find elements in today’s developments stocked with newly constructed houses. But this idyllic combination is the centerpiece at EdgeWater Estates, a community nestled along the banks of the Thames River in the town of Kilworth, on London’s western border.
Commitment to the environment is an integral element for South Winds Development, which has built dozens of communities across southwestern Ontario over the past six decades. “We believe in environmental stewardship, in placing an emphasis on the environment and open green space for people to enjoy,” says company CEO Stacey Graham. “We call it the ‘luxury of space,’ and it’s a key component of all our developments.”
An equally essential element is giving back to the municipalities where their developments are located, Graham says. At EdgeWater Estates, the company has met both criteria by dedicating a 46-acre parcel of protected lands, along the river, for municipal use.
The community is adjacent to Komoka Provincial Park, with its myriad walking trails and wildlife viewing sites. This new development is built around a central 10-acre lake, so it has a number of waterfront lots. Others back onto the green spaces or feature mature trees and foliage.
The lots themselves epitomize breathing room, with frontages ranging from 65 to 120 feet. “Those are very large lots by all standards,” Graham says.
The master-planned community is building in its second phase, called Bayshore. These single-family homes are being constructed by five builders: Bridlewood Homes, Harasym Developments, Melchers Construction, Millstone Homes and Westhaven Homes. This is “a team of builders who set the bar for the industry as the finest in London and Southwestern Ontario. The builder selection was carefully planned by South Winds, and I’m very proud of the result,” says Graham.
She says each builder has a unique style, which provides a diversity that defines the character of the community. “EdgeWater is absolutely not cookie cutter. We have architectural guidelines and work closely with our builders to ensure that each home is custom.”
This diversity applies not just to the houses but also to the overall design of the neighbourhoods. “We don’t work by a grid system,” Graham says. “We don’t have long straight roads. We have undulations; we have turns. We believe in creating a community that takes the environment into account and will stand the test of time as we look ahead to our long-lasting impact.”
