Introducing The Homes on Portage

A unique enclave of four luxury townhomes nestled in the heart of residential Niagara Falls, Garwood Homes designed these homes to blend into the existing streetscape creating almost a community within a community. The exteriors are a superb example of traditional English Tudor design reminiscent of the original homes built by the early Empire Loyalist settlers of the Niagara area.

Many of these homes still stand today.

Our Homes

Perfect for the empty-nester market, the Garwood Home Design Team has created open living home plans, with all of the comforts and sophisticated finishes, one might expect. Thoughtfully designed kitchens, open to the living and dining rooms with soaring (cathedral and vaulted) ceilings and patio walkouts.  It’s main-floor living at its best!

It just gets better!  There are walkout options available to expand the living area to include a large den, home office or an additional guest bedroom and bathroom.

Our design team will work with you to select all of the finishes of your home giving it that custom look and feel.

Creative and innovative design elements during many of our renovation projects allows us to take the opportunity to apply these stunning features to our new home designs.









The Community

Centrally located in a well-established residential neighbourhood in Niagara Falls. Schools, parks and churches are all within an easy walk.  Within a five minute drive radius there are four major grocery stores (Commisso’s, Sobey’s, Zehr’s), The Beer Store, LCBO, Home Depot and an outlet mall.

The Niagara Falls General Hospital is just a 2 minute drive away and there are numerous medical buildings in the area.

There is a wide range of restaurants, from the big chains to small, locally known gems, with easy access to the QEW: Toronto is 90 minutes away and the Buffalo airport is just a 45 minute drive.

For entertainment, there are three nearby casinos, two in Niagara Falls ON and one in Niagara Falls NY, just a short drive across the river. The Fallsview Casino Resort also brings in big name entertainers to fill their 1500 seat theatre. And just a 20 minute drive down the Niagara Parkway is the Shaw Festival which runs from April until November. After taking in a show, stroll beautiful Queen Street and shop in the eclectic mix of stores.

Fun to visit are the attractions of the Niagara Parks Commission, who keep the parklands along the Niagara River so beautifully maintained. It is hard to tire of Niagara Falls which is just a few minutes’ drive away. Also close by are the Butterfly Conservatory, the Botanical Gardens, greenhouses and the Whirlpool and Legends on the Niagara golf courses.

Further away are many more golf courses, both public and private, suitable for the novice to expert golfer. The Niagara River Recreation Trail, Welland Canals Trail and Bruce Trail provide walking and biking opportunities.

And of course, who can forget about the wineries! From Beamsville to Niagara-on-the-Lake there are now over 70 wineries, with new ones appearing regularly. Many of them also offer fine dining, great for a weekend lunch or dinner. And since this is farming country, fresh fruit and produce is readily available in stores, markets and at roadside stands.
