Georgian International creating remarkable communities in the Blue Mountains

Award-winning Braestone in Horseshoe Valley and Windfall and Mountain House in the Blue Mountains, by Georgian International, are among Ontario’s most exceptional and desirable projects.

MOUNTAIN HOUSE

It’s time to take your place in the ongoing story of a best seller. A new chapter has unfolded at Blue with Mountain House at Windfall. This exclusive mountain community was created over a sprawling 10 acres, slope-side, in the centre of nature’s four-season playground. Just minutes away from the shops of Blue Mountain Village, the beaches of Georgian Bay, the historic Town of Collingwood and some of Ontario’s most compelling natural attractions, Mountain House offers Blue Mountain chalet living as it was meant to be.

Authentic gas-fired lanterns will welcome you home. You’ll appreciate the natural stone accents and heavy timber frames of the 12 buildings that make up Mountain House, which are inspired by the surrounding forests and mountains. Inside the 230 suites you’ll find gleaming modern kitchens, spacious private terraces, and high-end features and finishes to complement your elegant mountain lifestyle.

What makes Mountain House truly an escape though, is the private club-like four-season amenity facility. At Zephyr Springs, the community’s own Nordic spa-inspired space, you can soak up the gorgeous views of the mountains while you unwind in the sauna, hot and cold pools and source pool. The relaxation and fitness room and extensive landscaped lounge area are the perfect place for yoga, stretching, reading or quiet reflection. The Après Lodge is a secluded social space where family and neighbours can connect, featuring conversation seating, an outdoor wood-burning fireplace and a bike tune-up and parking area. At Mountain House, wellness isn’t a buzzword; it’s a way of life.

Explore Mountain House now and witness how you can live in nature year-round without the heavy lifting of home maintenance. Envision all of the incredible adventures to come from the exhilarating to the sublime – hiking, skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, golfing and swimming to laying back in the warmth of the Nordic baths surrounded by snow. Simply magical.

Construction is well underway with Georgian International working to release its second of three phases this year due to strong demand. Units range from 675 to 1,150 square feet and start from low $300,000s.

Mountain House at Windfall: The newest development by Georgian International

Inspired by chalet-style architecture, Mountain House includes an exclusive collection of modern suites near the foothills of Blue Mountain and right next door to Scandinave Spa.

Developed by the multi-faceted company, Georgian International, this exclusive mountain community consists of 12 buildings set on ten magnificent acres in the heart of Ontario’s four-season playground. Mountain House is just minutes away from Blue Mountain Village, Georgian Bay, the historic Town of Collingwood and some of Ontario’s most compelling natural attractions.

COMPLEMENTARY STYLING

Georgian International has always been focused on adopting new construction methods and creating unique communities. Authentic gas lanterns are a welcoming addition on the front of the main building at Mountain House. Stone accents and heavy timber frames, as well as the use of natural materials throughout, pay homage to the surrounding forests and mountains. The architectural styling of this development is strongly rooted in historical traditions, but includes the finest in 21st century amenities.

WELLNESS IS A WAY OF LIFE

The enclave of residences at Mountain House are designed around an exclusive amenity area, along with gorgeous views of the impressive Blue Mountains. A chalet-inspired building is the perfect location for workshops, group gatherings and social events. Residents benefit from on-site activities like a connecting trail system (right outside their door), as well as bike repair stations, an outdoor wood burning fireplace, and so much more.

The undisputed perquisite of Mountain House, is that it includes its very own pool and spa-inspired space, called Zephyr Springs. Comprised of a sauna, relaxation and fitness rooms, hot and cold pools, as well as a large landscaped lounge area, residents can soak up the health benefits of a nordic bath circuit, along with hydrotherapy, every day of the week.

SUMPTUOUS SUITES

Monaco Condominiums

Stonebrooks new condo offers reasonably priced housing nestled along the shores of Georgian Bay

The GTA’s affordable housing problem is not just affecting first-time buyers. Empty nesters and retirees, as well as those simply looking for an upgrade, are finding it more and more difficult to enjoy the offerings of Toronto’s urban living without breaking the bank.

The good news is that there does seem to be a solution on the horizon.

Homebuyers in growing numbers are looking to the myriad towns that surround the GTA for reasonably priced housing that does not compromise on luxury and lifestyle.

A town like Collingwood, nestled along the shores of Georgian Bay, is just ninety minutes from Toronto’s work and play district. The town itself is enjoying a cultural revitalization, with gourmet restaurants, museums, and boutique stores now dotting the downtown. And with the development of real estate projects like Monaco Condominiums, high-end living is also within reach.

“Sixty per cent of our buyers so far are from the GTA,” says Monaco’s president, Remo Niceforo. “Monaco provides them with the amenities and living space that they desire, but at a real value for their money.”

The six-storey, 127-unit Monaco property is scheduled for occupancy in late 2020, with unit prices ranging from $369,000 to more than $2-million. Monaco offers residents plenty of choice in suite design, with one-, two- and three-bedrooms units.

All suites boast 10-foot ceilings, with detailed Italian cabinetry and engineered hardwood among many other features. And luxury living abounds with the three Signature Penthouse Suites to be exclusively released soon. These stunning boast 13-foot ceilings, private rooftop terraces and pools.

“Imagine being able to overlook Blue Mountain from the comforts of your very own pool,” says Niceforo. “You can have a sophisticated and elegant lifestyle at Monaco and still be steps away from some of Ontario’s best water and leisure activities… all year round!”

Collingwood really is a four-season wonderland, with boating, hiking, fishing, skiing and snowboarding at your doorstep. The options are endless for adults and young kids alike. And parents surely enjoy the small-town feeling that Collingwood has maintained, as last year’s census numbers rank Collingwood as one of the fastest growing communities in Canada.

“We are excited to provide big-city lifestyle and amenities in the heart of downtown Collingwood,” says Niceforo. “But Monaco is committed to upholding the small-town charm that distinguishes this historic area.”

Developments like Monaco Condominiums, in towns like Collingwood may indeed offer the solution for homebuyers hoping for a luxury lifestyle at a fraction of the price.

To that end, Stonebrook brought A. J. Tregebov Architects on board, to design Monaco such that it would fit seamlessly within the town’s surrounding heritage buildings and aesthetic. As a result, Monaco Condominiums is certain to become a downtown Collingwood landmark.

Bylaws regulating development make it nearly impossible to produce another project such as this one, says Niceforo. Monaco Condominiums is located at Hurontario and Hume Streets and is located on the only lands designated for condo development in the town’s Heritage Conservation District.

Visit the Presentation Centre, located at 25 Huron Street. The Presentation Centre and professionally designed model suite are open from noon to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, and from noon to 5 p.m. weekends; closed Tuesdays.

LEISURE PURSUITS

Collingwood is home to many events and festivals. One of its most famous is certainly the Elvis Presley Festival, which attracts Elvis impersonators from all over the world.

Other events include the Jazz & Blues Festival, Art on the Street, Culture Days and Art in Town Hall, while Theatre Collingwood produces live performances of plays and musicals. The town is also home to many art galleries and studios, a fabulous farmers’ market and the Collingwood Museum.

If you don’t feel up to strolling the galleries, however, you can simply enjoy lying on the beach, throwing a line into the water at one of the area’s many great fishing spots, or paddle the area in a canoe or kayak. If you’re feeling more adventurous, Wasaga Beach — the world’s longest freshwater beach — awaits.

PARKS & REC

Collingwood and Wasaga Beach are located on the southern shore of Georgian Bay, next to Blue Mountain, a promontory of the Niagara Escarpment. The region is a major recreational area, noted for skiing, water sports and incredible beaches. There is large network of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

The Collingwood Arboretum has both paved and natural trails and is a vital botanical park. Collingwood’s Scenic Caves offer a variety of activities, including cave tours, a treetop canopy walk, nature trails, a suspension bridge, a zip line, gemstone mining, a trout pond and mini golf.

And speaking of golf, the area is home to many great championship golf courses, including Cobble Beach, Lora Bay, Monterra at Blue Mountain Resort, Cranberry Golf Resort, Georgian Bay Club, Batteaux Creek, OslerBrook, and Horseshoe Resort’s Valley and Highlands courses.

Wasaga Beach Provincial Park offers a myriad of activities, including canoeing, swimming, boating, fishing, biking, birding, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

RETAIL THERAPY

There are many lovely shopping areas in both Collingwood and Wasaga Beach, offering a fine assortment of boutiques, arts and crafts stores, independent retailers, cafés, restaurants and pubs. The nearest shopping mall is Georgian Mall in Barrie, where you can find many chain stors and big box outlets.

EASY ACCESS

Wasaga Beach and Collingwood are served by Highway 26, which runs along the shore of the Nottawasaga Bay, and County Road 124. The towns are also served by a rail link connecting them to the towns of Owen Sound and Barrie. There is a spur heading north through Collingwood to the large grain elevators at the downtown wharf, where trains would formerly load and unload into lake ships. Collingwood has its own transit service, as does Wasaga Beach. Collingwood also boasts an airport, a medium-sized facility about seven kilometres south of the town.

BY THE NUMBERS

Collingwood Population: 21,800
Wasaga Beach Population: 20,675

Luxury development in the heart of Collingwood

Whether it’s a ski weekend near Blue Mountain, or summer days lounging at Wasaga Beach, Collingwood has long been a favourite getaway destination for Torontonians. The area’s four-season resort lifestyle, combined with amazing views and the enticing Georgian Bay, is an alluring draw. However, there is now a new reason to visit Collingwood, according to Remo Niceforo of Monaco’s development team, “It’s the introduction of a luxury residence to downtown Collingwood that is really turning heads,” says Niceforo.

DOWNTOWN’S NEWEST ADDRESS

As the downtown district expands, the need for modern urban accommodation increases. It’s a need that the newest development by Stonebrook Development addresses. Monaco is the first, and only, luxury condominium development in the heart of Collingwood’s burgeoning main streets. With architect firm AJT Architects and interior designers MC2 Designs on the team, Monaco is set to create an iconic downtown landmark.

Located at 1 Hume Street, at the corner of Hurontario, this six-storey building will span a full city block, and make a striking impression with its Beaux-Art inspired architectural facade.

SUITE SENSATIONS

Monaco’s 127 suites are available to buyers in a range of expansive layouts, with one-bedroom, one-plus-den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom-plus-den and three-bedroom designs. Suite sizes range from 645 to more that 2,500 square feet, and are priced from the $300,000s.

An elegantly appointed lobby welcomes residents. Each suite boasts 10-foot ceilings and spectacular views from spacious balconies. Natural light highlights MC2’s inspiring design choices, from the imported Italian kitchens and upgraded appliances, to the spa-like bathrooms with Italian vanities. Residents will also enjoy an expansive view from the rooftop fitness centre and the outdoor terrace – perfect for barbecues and al fresco dining.

A stunning penthouse collection includes premium finishes like 13-foot ceilings and Italian cabinetry, along with breathtaking views of Blue Mountain and Georgian Bay. Only a few units remain.

MONACO’S INFLUENCE

“When we began work on Monaco, the need for luxury downtown residences was clear,” says Niceforo. “But we wanted to do more than simply meet that need. We wanted to build Monaco in a manner that was quintessentially Collingwood, with a design feel inspired by the look and lifestyle of the surrounding area. Monaco embodies that inspiration.”

Monaco will evoke a sense of timelessness and grandeur, while honouring the culture, character and history of the downtown area of Collingwood.

CONTACT INFORMATION

The Monaco presentation centre and professionally designed model suite are located at 25 Huron Street.

Creating Remarkable Communities

Choose a full-time home in a pastoral setting, with vacation-like amenities close at hand. Georgian Bay and Oro-Medonte are wonderful lifestyle alternatives.

Developed by the multi-faceted company, Georgian International, and recognized as the Best New Home Community in Canada (2016) by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association, as well as a CHBA award-winning sales centre, Braestone Estates continues to gain recognition for the down-home, up-country lifestyle community that they promote.

Located in Oro-Medonte, within the beautiful Horseshoe Valley, the 229 homes at Braestone are situated on 566 acres of aesthetically appealing landscape. Braestone is well-known for its distinctive architecture, which is a modern interpretation of the country style dwellings of the Oro-Medonte region. Born of the land, Braestone’s Remarkables’ collection features timeless designs that are a natural reflection of the magnificent landscape surrounding the community. Remarkable experiences that all homeowners can enjoy, include horseback riding and Nordic skiing, as well as picking seasonal fruit, tapping maple sugar trees, playing baseball and hiking on the private trail system.

WINDFALL AT BLUE MOUNTAIN

In addition to the award-winning community of Braestone, Georgian International is building a lifestyle community at the base of Blue Mountain. The Windfall at Blue Mountain encompasses 148 acres, one-third of which will be dedicated to parks, ponds and trails, as well as wildlife and nature preservation areas. Winner of Simcoe County Home Builders’ Association’s Project of the Year (2017), the community of Windfall includes a wonderful selection of mountain-chalet-inspired detached, and semi-detached, designs.

MOUNTAIN HOUSE

The newest project by Georgian International is Mountain House at Windfall. Released in January 2018, this project has been well-received. Construction has begun on the 230-unit Mountain House low rise development, which is positioned in an idyllic setting. Two-, three-, and four-storey buildings feature chalet-style terrace suites, complemented by a community building and a bike repair station, in addition to a sauna and relaxation room, as well as hot and cold pools.

ACTIVE PURSUITS

Collingwood, Blue Mountain and Wasaga Beach are all easily accessible from Windfall and Mountain House. There’s no shortage of things to do. Nearby activities include boating and fishing on Georgian Bay, as well as skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, water parks, golfing and hiking.

CREATING DIVERSITY

In addition to their residential real estate projects, Georgian International acquired the former Orillia Golf & Country Club in 2017. Since then, the course has been renamed Braestone Club, and is a stone’s throw away from the development that shares its name. The company has begun to revitalize the course, and has plans to include a multipurpose club house and events venue.

Georgian International has been carving their own path for more than 30 years. In addition to real estate development, company divisions include Georgian Chevrolet Buick GMC and Air Georgian, which operates as an Air Canada Express partner, carrying more than one million passengers on an annual basis.

Real estate prices continue to rise in Toronto, and Hamilton is experiencing major growth, making home ownership out of reach for many. New home purchasers are now looking at making their full-time home in a more pastoral setting, with vacation-like amenities close at hand. Georgian Bay and Oro-Medonte are wonderful lifestyle alternatives. Georgian International’s tagline is; live remarkably. At any one of their three new developments, you can do just that.

The next hot areas

Demand for new housing in the GTA has never been higher. According to Altus Group data, the benchmark price for available new single-family homes was $1,225,774 in December, a 23.2 per cent annual increase. The benchmark price for available new condominium apartments was $716,772 at the end of 2017, 41.3 per cent above the average value from December 2016. And for the second consecutive year, new condo sales set a record high. So the industry must be building more homes than ever, right?

Actually, no. Housing starts in the Toronto Census Metropolitan Area (TCMA) reached 38,700 in 2017 according to CMHC, only slightly above the 10-year average of 36,800, but down 1 per cent from last year. There is a massive backlog of projects that have experienced strong absorption, but have yet to break ground due to a shortage of construction companies. The average single-detached home took 11 months to complete in 2017, the highest total ever tracked by CMHC, and it took 13.5 months to complete a semi and 14 months to complete a townhouse, both record highs. It took over two and a half years to finish construction on the average apartment (condo and rental) in the Toronto CMA last year, the second highest annual result to date.

Some buyers tired of waiting for new home deliveries are looking outside the region. According to Bullpen’s Residential Real Estate Round Up Report, the most popular destinations in December for prospective new homebuyers outside the GTA were Hamilton and Guelph. New homes are delivered much quicker in both of those markets. In fact, CMHC reports that it took just six months on average to build a single-detached home in Guelph last year. However, the prices are not as inexpensive as they used to be. Our report shows that the average new project in Hamilton has new single-family units starting from about $1,600 a square foot for about $570,000, while Guelph projects have lowrise product starting from $1,700/sf for $625,000.

GTA buyers are taking notice of these more affordable markets. Ryan Waller of Home Group Realty Group in Guelph estimates that a quarter of all resale transactions in Guelph were to GTA buyers based on the fact that 25.5 per cent of buyers were represented by GTA real estate agents in 2017.

With the new mortgage stress test in place, and GTA new home price growth through the roof, the next hot area for new homes will probably be outside the region. Based on our numbers, look for strength in the Brantford, Kitchener and Collingwood new home markets in 2018.

Destination Ontario: The Natural Wonders of Collingwood

Latest News


Destination Ontario: The Natural Wonders of Collingwood

By Cece M. Scott www.cecescott.com

Incorporated as a town in 1858, Collingwood became a shipping hub for products that were destined for the upper Great Lakes ports of Chicago and Thunder Bay. For more than a century, shipbuilding was the town’s main industry. In 1986 the shipyards were closed, and the waterfront is now a revered leisure destination.

BRING IT ON

Located on the southern end of Georgian Bay, Collingwood is the gateway to the Blue Mountains, where skiing, snowboarding, shopping and fine dining off er the best that winter has to offer.

Blue Mountain is Ontario’s largest village resort, just 90 minutes north of Toronto and 11 kilometres west of Collingwood. There are 43 ski and snowboard trails, 365 skiable acres and a vertical drop of 720 feet. At the base of the mountain, The Village features more than 45 distinctive restaurants, bars and retail shops. Along with the popular Scandinave Spa, visitors can also enjoy the village’s two onsite spas.

Off -hill winter activities include tennis, the aquatic centre, snowshoeing, and new for 2018 – the Woodview Mountaintop Skating Trail at the top of Blue.

With the growing popularity of Winter Fat Biking, mountain bikers can now spin their wheels all year long. Fat bikes use tires that are inflated with less air pressure, which make navigating through snowy terrain a fun way to improve balance and strengthen winter legs.

WHET YOUR WHISTLE

The nine-day Whiskylicious festival, running from February 1st to the 10th, is a whiskey-infused celebration of local food. The outdoor ice bars and culinary pairings are inspired by Collingwood Whiskey – a toasted, Maplewood-finished Canadian blend. Located in the downtown core, the festival is a showcase of signature chef dishes, music, arts and brewers.

This year, the Apple Pie Trail FEEST is on Friday, February 9th, and is sponsored by Red Prince Apple to benefit the Blue Mountain Village Foundation. This magical evening features local food, cider, wine and music, along with moonlit trails with stops at fire-lit cabins. The five-kilometre guided trek takes participants across southern Ontario’s longest suspension footbridge, and through the trails of Scenic Caves Nordic Centre.

SUMMER THRILLS

The distinctive shoreline and blue waters of Georgian Bay, mixed with the area’s rich marine history, are natural highlights for all types of boaters.

The Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster (Ontario’s first) is a one kilometre ride through the Niagara Escarpment’s diverse terrain. Drivers can reach an exhilarating 42 kilometres per hour.

Popular golf courses in the area include the 18-hole, par 71 Duntroon Highlands Golf Club, which offers spectacular vistas of Collingwood, Stayner and Blue, as well as the Blue Mountain Golf & Country Club, The Georgian Bay Club and Batteaux Creek Golf Club.

STROLLIN’ ALONG

With 60 kilometres of four-season, well-marked, multi-use trails, touring around Collingwood is perpetually pleasurable. The downtown core is jam-packed with trendy clothing stores, spas, galleries, fine dining, artisan cafes, live music venues, pubs and bars, in addition to dozens of art galleries and studios. Colourful panels and murals are creative reminders of Collingwood’s historical past, spanning more than two centuries.

Visitors and residents are passionate about the The Good Food Stroll – a walking or biking tour that showcases Collingwood’s love affair with food. Much is sourced from local farmers, and includes restaurant pit stops, cafes, specialty food outlets, food markets, cafes and sweet shops.

THE SPIRITS OF COLLINGWOOD

The soil and unique climate associated with this region are key elements in the making of the distinctive wine at Georgian Hills Vineyards. During the winter, visitors can snowshoe through the vineyards and enjoy artisanal cheeses and a glass of wine after their trek.

Collingwood’s craft breweries, include Northwinds Brewhouse & Kitchen, The Collingwood Brewery and Side Launch Brewing Company Inc. (named for the town’s shipbuilding industry).

Meaford is the heart of Ontario’s apple country. Stayner and Thornbury, a short drive from Collingwood, offer eclectic variations of the small town experience, and numerous pick-your own farms en-route.
