Here’s what our enthusiastic homeowners have to say…
We love our house. What we like best about our home is the detail; the high baseboards, the archway to the kitchen, the 10 foot ceilings. There are many small details that make this house remarkable. What we love about our old house is the architectural details. Our old house was a typical North Toronto house built in the 20’s. The house Cricket Hill built us has the architectural details but with all the modern conveniences. Our house is new but it doesn’t look like a typical new house. It looks timeless.
We looked at other builders and what ultimately made our decision were Peter and Patrice. The impression we got from our first meeting was that they took pride in the homes that they built and that they were passionate about what they did. We wanted the people building our house to care as much about it as us. I have never met anyone talk about trim as passionately as Peter. Our first impression turned out to be correct and we ended up with a home we love.
We are so absolutely thrilled with our new home … and Cricket Hill was an integral part in achieving that dream. You set our minds at ease from the start. Your portfolio of homes all said “quality.” Your help in choosing an architect and making the plans “work” was invaluable. Your attention to detail and helpful suggestions throughout the build gave us confidence to “go for it” … and we’re really glad we did! Because we got what we wanted … and more!
After 8 months of searching for a new home, we stumbled across a Cricket Hill home that had everything we were looking for. Our ultimate decision to purchase the home was based on the builder’s efficient use of space on a small lot and the high quality finishings from the millwork to the hardware. Peter and Patrice take great pride in their product and have an excellent understanding of the neighborhood being residents themselves. Their dedication to their buyers extends well beyond the closing date.
My husband and I began looking for a larger home shortly after we discovered we were expecting our first child. Our story is a repeat performance of what many others have faced when looking for a new family home – many weekends and time invested in open houses, only to discover the countless compromises one would have to endure when making one of the most important investments of our lives.
After seven months with no success, our real estate agent put us in touch with Cricket Hill Homes. They were in the initial stages of project that best suited our needs and price range. After meeting with them on site, we were immediately impressed with their professionalism, depth of experience and their willingness to work with us to make this house our home.
Initially we were unfamiliar with their reputation, but that was quickly rectified after speaking with other clients in the neighbourhood who gave them glowing endorsements. We purchased the home and started our adventure.
From the very beginning Peter and Patrice outlined the companies process and philosphy which allowed us the ability to inject our style and unique requirements into the project. They always took a “can-do” approach and made us feel that this was the most important home they were building, and us, their most important clients. Their open communication style was also appreciated during the time surrounding the birth of our daughter. Frequent phone calls and e-mail updates kept us in the loop and aware of next steps.
We’ve now moved into our wonderful new home. A beautiful, timeless design, without the compromises. In fact, we gained much more than we anticipated with the very best quality findings and materials, fine finishes, a custom-made kitchen, unique mouldings (a signature of Cricket Hill Homes) and complementary landscaping that brings our home to life.
During the build process, friends were interested to hear about our experience. Needless to say, it was incredible and not the “typical” developer/new home build scenario that many people unfortunately go through.
If you are in the same situation we were, I encourage you to call Cricket Hill Homes. We were lucky enough to find them and they are the only company I would ever entertain building with again.
