Final Phase now under construction at StoneBrook Townhomes & Cottages

Construction of our 3rd and final phase of townhomes and cottages continues to push on.  There is an abundant amount of activity that continues up on the hill. Foundations are being dug, the sound of nails striking into wood frames echo in the crisp air.  This is the sound of progress!

This final phase of rental homes will include 17 cottage homes and 9 townhomes. All of the townhomes and many of the cottages will include lower levels (“Plus” homes) which add flexibility with a 500SF finished living area as well as a large unfinished area ideal for storage.  Builder and developer Todd Longwell has included many features found in his custom homes, such as archways, crown molding, 9 and 12-foot ceilings, and transom windows.

Visit us in Fairport, New York and see why we feel StoneBrook is the most unique rental community in the area.  Leasing office open 12-4pm daily; closed Sundays.

Your green thumb itching to play in some dirt? Try Terrariums!

Why not create a terrarium?

Terrariums are a great option for those with minimal garden space (think: renters!) yet want the beauty of greenery in and around their home.  Join Kathleen Rullo, owner of Jardin Terrariums in Fairport, who will build 2 terrariums (which will be raffled off) at the “Terrariums by Jardin Terrariums” program at the Fairport Library on January 25th.

From 7-8pm Kathleen will talk about the history of these small, lush gardens, the difference between open and closed terrariums, and how to select a container and plants.

Advanced registration is required and begins on Dec. 28th at 9am.

January 17th learn about Rochester to Canada “cruise” – a different era

Daily passenger cruises between Rochester and Cobourg, Canada started in 1909 and continued through 1950.  Many Rochestarians remember the service and have fond memories of the 10-hour cruise.  Between Memorial Day and late September, up to 1,000 passengers could enjoy the trip across Lake Ontario on a ferryboat equipped with a dining area, picnic area, orchestra and dance floor.  Once in Cobourg, passengers could shop on Main St. and stroll through the town square.

On January 17th from 7-9pm in the Fairport Public Library Community Room, Tom Brewer, a member of the NY Museum of Transportation will present a talk about the “Cobourg Boat” as it was referred to.  Tom’s speech, “A Steamer Trip on Lake Ontario: Rochester, NY to Cobourg, ON”, will take you through the history of this special trip before cars were prevalent and time had a very different meaning.
Advanced registration is required.  http://fairportlibrary.evanced.info/signup/Calendar
