A New Option for Home Ownership in Chatham-Kent



Are you single, a couple, a single parent or young family?

Do you desire the independence that home ownership can provide but acknowledge that today’s housing market and traditional home ownership are out of your reach?

Well ... now is the time to become part of an exciting new opportunity in Chatham-Kent where residents seeking affordable home ownership, an energetic and vibrant community, and reduced environmental impacts (or footprints) can thrive.

The Opportunity Villages Community Land Trust (OVCLT) is developing a life-lease community, in Chatham, at accessible pricing which is 10% below current market value in the area.

The Brickworks community welcomes all residents living and working in the area.  And this unique small home development makes home ownership a reality for those with a lower annual income.  Residents will enjoy the comforts of independent accommodation, yet reap the benefits of a cohesive neighbourhood feel.  We invite you to learn more about our small home community by completing the Expression of Interest below.

Please note that all photographs, at this time, are stock and do not represent OVCLT homes. Actual renderings will be published on this website as they become available.

Each home is designed to be a perfect blend of function and beauty. With warm spaces that invite family, friends, and neighbours to come together. It's not just a house, it's a home.


You can have it all - an affordable place to call home that is built to the highest standards. These smaller houses are big on quality and deliver exceptional value for every dollar invested.



Community is essential; so much so that it's part of our name. Just like you, we value the benefits of having the best neighbourhoods because they provide comfort, safety, and an opportunity for everyone to thrive.

The community is being developed on land at 10 Taylor Avenue on the east side of Chatham, Ontario. You'll discover the homes are located close to local shopping and the downtown, easy access to parks, on a bus route and many other amenities; it's the perfect place for all of your needs.



Home sales have not yet begun, but you can be the first to receive information including designs and layouts, home options, and when and how to purchase. Contact us today and register for updates.
