Model Home Feature: Braestone in the Horseshoe Valley
This is the look of attainable luxury!
The two must-see models at Braestone showcase attainable luxury that reflects the stature of this exceptional community. The 2,720-square-foot Thoroughbred model has many deluxe options that complement the relaxed Horseshoe equestrian lifestyle. White kitchen cabinets, with a subway-style backsplash, contrast the dark centre island. The master bedroom features a walk-in closet and spa, and includes a deep soaker tub that faces the window.
The 2,658-square-foot Morgan model features an optional finished loft. A vaulted ceiling tops a dramatic floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace in the living room. Many of the other features and finishes are standard, highlighting the luxuriousness included in all homes.
The Canadian Home Builders Association named Braestone the Best New Home Community of 2016 in all of Canada. The Discovery Centre was also named the Best Low Rise Sales Office in Canada.
The Sales Office and Model Homes are located at 3288 Line 9 North in Oro-Medonte. From Toronto and the GTA, go north on Highway 400 past Barrie to Exit 117 (Horseshoe Valley Rd. W.), then travel east to Ninth Line N. and turn south. Call or visit the website for hours, directions and more information.

Plan Now For Your Summer Garden
By Emily Murphy
Planning a garden can be difficult – if not daunting. Knowing where to begin is often at the crux of any overwhelming task. I tend to dig out my short list of plants that I love to grow, and suggest that you do the same. Focus on a small space so that your garden is manageable and easy to maintain. When you start with the plants that bring you the most joy, or that provide the most flavor with the least amount of effort, you’ll quickly transform that designated area of dirt into magnificent magic.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
Consider raised beds, containers, or pots that edge a stairway. Look for planters that are small enough to move around, but provide plenty of rooting depth for growing plants. Raised beds elevate the planting surface, which make them easier to tend to. You’ll still have plenty of room to grow a variety of plants like pole beans, sunflowers, tomatoes, leafy greens and herbs – all in one container.
For a flourishing garden, start with an organic planting mix, which has plenty of compost to create a soil ecosystem that feeds beneficial soil microbes and fungi to support optimal plant growth. Avoid using pesticides. Instead, add edible flowers and companion plants to the mix. These will help to fend off pests, and give pollinators a place to call home.
WATCH YOUR GARDEN GROW
There’s nothing like witnessing the various growth stages, so position your garden as close as you can to see it. If the sunniest spot is out of sight, create a space around it where you’ll enjoy spending time.
With lengthening days and warming temperatures, the thought of gardening sows the wild oats of many. Now is the perfect time to start your garden – so get outside and grow.
