Royal Homes Gravenhurst

When you pass beneath the arches of the Gateway to the Muskoka Lakes, you enter a place like no other. Gravenhurst sits on the cusp of one of the most beautiful regions in all of Canada. The 12,000 residents welcome tens of thousands of guests every year, and it’s no surprise many visitors decide to make it their permanent home. Building a custom home in Gravenhurst, Ontario is a cottager’s dream come true — one that might be closer than you realize.

Read on to learn about our Gravenhurst Design Centre and get a taste of what it’s like living in Gravenhurst.

Living in Gravenhurst, Ontario

Picture the quintessential Canadian cottage country, with dockside restaurants, quaint shops, and some of the friendliest people you’ll meet. Know it or not, you’re thinking of Gravenhurst.

Gravenhurst sits at the meeting point of Lake Muskoka and Gull Lake, giving you a front-row seat to some of the best sunsets in Ontario. It’s also a place where you can immerse yourself in rich Canadian cultural heritage.

The town comes together every year to celebrate Canada Day, Pirate Fest, and the Gravenhurst Winter Carnival, along with a weekly farmer’s market in the warmer months. The gallery of local shops include fresh start-ups and family businesses that have lasted generations. Gravenhurst has something for everyone and countless opportunities to participate in community life.

Though often thought as a place to retire, Gravenhurst is also home to an increasing number of younger families, and now boasts three elementary schools and a high school. And with no more than a 90 minute drive between you and the city, it’s easy to drive down to Toronto for a daytrip (or invite your friends up north for a weekend!)

Building a Home in Gravenhurst

All the media hype about luxury hotels and million-dollar Muskoka cottages might leave you thinking that living in Gravenhurst is the stuff of dreams. The reality is that building a home in Gravenhurst is not only within reach for many families, but may actually be more affordable than building in the Greater Toronto Area.

While property has experienced the same rise in value along with the rest of the province, the median price of a home in Gravenhurst is $419,000 — lower than both the average and median price of a home in Ontario overall.

The Royal Homes Gravenhurst Design Centre

Our Gravenhurst Design Centre puts the spotlight on one of our favourite prefabricated home models, the Lakeview. Take a drive down highway 11 — you can’t miss the sky-siding and the jewel-like windows that crown the Lakeview’s front entryway.

Lakeview cottage plans

This bungalow home features three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows to maximize your view of the world around you. It is designed to immerse you in the natural beauty of the Muskokas while providing the comfort of luxurious, modern amenities. The bungalow’s floor plan features a spacious master bedroom with a walk-in closet and private en-suite.

We invite you to take a virtual walk through the Lakeview with our video tour or drop by our Gravenhurst Design Centre to explore it up close and personal.

  • FAQ

    Where can I get a price list or How come your website doesn’t show pricing?

    Prices vary geographically, depending on where you are building. With the amount of options available, price lists run into thousands of options. Prices change with the options you choose. The best way to get an idea on pricing would be to contact our Design Centre nearest to where you are building.

    What is your average square foot selling price?

    Prices for a complete home, including foundation vary from $250 sq-ft to over $350 because our homes are all custom built, we can design a home to fit your budget.

    Why should I buy from you over a conventional or "Stick-Builder"?

    The advantages of prefab include building in a climate controlled environment, using environmentally friendly products which reduces waste and a CSA monitored quality controlled program. There is less time start to finish, with less disruption to neighborhood. We also sell at a firm price.

    Do your homes include a foundation?

    Yes our homes include full foundation and basement.

    How long does it take to build a Royal Home?

    It takes less than two weeks to build a home in our factory, but the process from start to finish is very dependent on the timing of obtaining a building permit. For most of our clients the process from start to delivery is twelve to sixteen weeks with move in eight to twelve weeks thereafter.

    What size homes do you build?

    As a custom builder we can build any size home but generally the average size range is between 1300 and 3500 sq feet.

    Do you build garages?

    Yes. Garages are built on site after the home is delivered.

    Are the homes energy efficient?

    Building a prefab home in a factory assures the highest attention to sealing the building envelope and ensures that the cold stays out.

    Since your homes are so energy efficient and air tight, how do you get fresh air?

    All our homes have HRV heat recovery ventilator air exchanger to remove stale air, and introduce fresh air.

    Where can I put a prefab home?

    Anywhere in Ontario you like.

    Can I really customize my prefab home?

    Yes, we use state of the art custom design software, today no two homes are built alike.

    Do you finish the basement?

    Yes. We can customize your basement to the finishes you desire.

    Are Royal Homes built to code?

    All Royal Homes are individually designed to meet all provincial and municipal building codes for your specific lot location.

    Do you build stick-built or conventional homes as well?

    We are a custom home builder first and use prefabricated components wherever we can, because it is a better way to build. If you have a remote site or custom home design with large open spaces we would look at what makes most sense for that design and location. This could include prebuilt panels or partially site built specific rooms.

    What makes the building process environmentally friendly?

    Waste in the factory is separated and recycled, reducing the impact on landfills. This has less disruption in terms of noise and time at job site. Building prefab allows for higher energy efficient homes and reduced heating costs.

    How is your home delivered?

    Our home is delivered by way of custom designed hydraulic flatbed trailers and precisely craned onto the foundation.

    Can you make changes or custom design?

    Yes, clients are given preliminary plans to review and changes are welcome and easily accommodated.
