Summerhill Homes’ West Shore Beach Club Wins BILD Award for Best New Community, Built

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Summerhill Homes was announced the winner of BILD’s ‘Best New Community, Built’ award for West Shore Beach Club.

Located just 10 minutes north of Orillia on beautiful Lake Couchiching in the Muskoka Region, West Shore Beach Club is a fully sold-out gated beachfront community of only 76 detached homes, featuring endless year-round lifestyle offerings on the Lake from canoeing to windsurfing, cross-country skiing or skating on the lake and ice fishing to playing volleyball or badminton. Residents also have access to a Marine House and a private 300-foot-long waterfront beach built by the developer specifically for them.

“We are honoured to be recognized by BILD for this prestigious award,” said Summerhill Homes’ President Sal Ruscica. “At Summerhill Homes, we strive to build inspired and custom communities, each one designed to enhance the natural beauty of the area that surrounds it. A development of over 10 years in the making and designed from the beach up, West Shore Beach Club is the resulting embodiment of this mandate and we are thrilled that it is being recognized for how truly unique it is.”

“We designed West Shore from inception with the aim of delivering a community to support and reflect its residents’ lifestyles. Homeowners, primarily vibrant retirees, were seeking a primary resort-inspired community in which they can enjoy year-round tranquil cottage living with outdoor activities just steps from the beach,” said Summerhill Homes’ Marketing Director Cathy Ruscica.

“West Shore Beach Club is the successful result of our company’s vision to develop with the residents in mind, creating a home and community built to complement their lifestyles rather than be an impediment to it,” she said.

The BILD Awards is an annual competition that recognizes excellence in construction, design, marketing and sales of new homes in the Greater Toronto Area. This year, an expert panel of 52 judges from across North America and Europe decided on the winners from 1,000 entries.

Earlier this year, West Shore Beach Club was a finalist for the Best New Community in Canada award by the Canadian Home Builders Association (CHBA) National Awards for Housing Excellence and, in 2014, a BILD finalist for the Places to Grow-Community of the Year award.
