Happy home buyer looks forward to enhancing her lifestyle
Durham Region transplant Monique P. has been enjoying life in the Markham and Ellesmere neighbourhood for a couple of years now as a renter, and couldn’t be more excited by her recent step into home ownership at ME2. ME2 is the second phase in Lash Group of Companies’ highly successful master-planned community ME Living Condos in this vibrant Scarborough area.
“Home ownership gives you personal independence” says Monique, “given I’ll be situated in a more stable living arrangement and creating my own home, family planning down the road will be a greater consideration. Building equity and making this investment towards my future is a big plus that reaps automatic benefits you are not afforded as a renter”.
She’s already in love with the neighbourhood, which offers everything she needs nearby. A frequent visitor to local coffee shops, restaurants and hair salons, Monique finds the amenities at Cedarbrae Mall and surrounding area round out her day-to-day requirements, such as banks and pharmacies. The proximity of Scarborough Town Centre is an added bonus: “All of these places are more accessible and comparable to activities I enjoyed in Durham”. The cycling enthusiast says she’s also looking forward to further exploration of local parks, trails and hidden green spaces.
Monique is an avid traveller particularly partial to warm destinations including the Caribbean Islands and Southern United States, which made ME2’s lushly landscaped, Miami-style rooftop oasis and swimming pool especially appealing. “These mirror the amenities I seek when I travel. The icing on the cake would be the addition of a rooftop hot tub” she says (with a hopeful smile and both fingers crossed!), adding also that she plans to make good use of the Hollywood-style theatre and interactive sports lounge with games area and billiards table for entertaining.
She purchased her one-bedroom-plus-den suite in part because of its versatility. Placing a Murphy bed in the den will welcome overnight visitors and, equipped with a desk, the room will also function as a home-based office.
Monique loves the idea of living in the ME condominium community and feels it is a particularly good choice for someone like her; a single person who works the graveyard shift in the hospitality industry and hops on a plane whenever she can. “I’ll be able to lock and leave”, she says. “It’s an excellent way to ease into first time home ownership”.
ME Living is at the heart of the transformation of this well-established east-end neighbourhood. It offers easy access to numerous parks, golf courses and the Scarborough Bluffs, and the new LRT system will be right at the doorstep; ME Living is also just a few minutes’ drive to Hwy. 401 and the DVP.
The beautiful tree-lined courtyard, scenic pond (which becomes a skating pad in the winter) and dramatic lobby will welcome residents and visitors into this truly special community. Professionally designed remaining one-bedroom + den, and two-bedroom + den suites offer features and finishes chosen for their perfect balance of modern form and seamless function. Prices start from mid-$200,000s, a rare find in the entire GTA.
