With large homes and townhouses built with comfort in mind, Dreamfields is no pipe dream.

Located north of the GTA in Bradford, Ont., Dreamfields by Rosehaven Homes offers plenty of value for families looking for a hidden retreat they can relax in. Yet, with a dedicated GO train station and Highway 400 nearby, access from Dreamfields to the lower GTA is a snap too.

The flagship Sunflower model unit features just over 3,300 square feet of living space, three bathrooms, multiple fireplaces and a serving area between the kitchen and dining room. Common walkways throughout the unit are outfitted with engineered hardwood flooring, a popular choice with many homeowners because it withstands changes in moisture better than traditional hardwood.

Heather Weeks, marketing manager at Rosehaven Homes, says the colour scheme incorporates plenty of soft blues and creams with a touch of red and is intended to create a fresh, inviting look.

“We try to keep people’s comfort level in mind and we keep nice, fresh colours throughout — it’s a warm, inviting environment,” Weeks said.

The kitchen design provides a relaxed, cottage-like atmosphere while the dining area exudes a more traditional, tasteful formality. The juxtaposition of styles is deliberate, Weeks says, to allow homeowners to enjoy the comfort of a relaxing space while still maintaining an elegant look for when guests come over.

“I wouldn’t say it’s traditional and I wouldn’t say it’s contemporary. It’s really a mix of both and you still have that sense of elegance,” Weeks said.

Comfort and relaxation are perhaps best expressed in the enormous master bedroom with its in-wall fireplace and curved archway to the ensuite, open-concept bathroom.

“The master ensuite is massive — it runs the whole width of the back of the home. It’s like the perfect retreat,” Weeks said.
