Georgian International: Creating Remarkable Communities
Creating remarkable communities is a hallmark of the Barrie-based builder.
Bringing a unique approach to real estate is a hallmark of Georgian International’s mission. Award-winning Braestone in Horseshoe Valley, and Windfall and Mountain House in the Town of Blue Mountains are among Ontario’s most exceptional and desirable projects.
When you drive down the quiet stretch of road to Braestone‘s main entrance, underneath the leafy canopies of century-old trees, the horse paddocks sharply delineate where the outside world ends and the storied world of Braestone begins. Residents enjoy a secluded, simpler yet refined country lifestyle, with the convenience of being in close proximity to countless forms of recreation and the neighbouring cities of Barrie and Orillia.
At Braestone, families experience authentic “Remarkables,” a term coined for the many timeless amenities that have grown organically from the community’s stunning landscape. A full 60 per cent of the land is set aside as a nature preserve with forests, trails, ponds and more.
There are literally dozens of Remarkables to experience every season. From watching the stars shine atop the future observatory hill called Starfall, to the neighbouring Braestone Farm’s skating pond and maple sugar shack, residents at Braestone can experience this glorious style of living every single day.
The homes at Braestone are inspired by the architecture of the Oro-Medonte region. Their unique architecture combines a simple yet strikingly modern interpretation of country style influenced by the farmhouses, barns and sheds of the Oro-Medonte region with refined contemporary finishing details. Remarkable standard features include covered porches with gas lanterns, hardwood floors in living areas, granite countertops in kitchens including islands, frameless glass showers and smooth finished ceilings. Bungalow and two-storey floorplans have been developed to complement Braestone’s minimum 100-foot up to 300-foot deep lots. Construction is well underway at Braestone, with families already moved in and experiencing the remarkable lifestyle available at the country estate.
Set at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment, Windfall at Blue Mountain is an inspired enclave of detached and semi-detached mountain homes next to Blue Mountain Village. This 148-acre master-planned community will more authentically represent the concept of resort living than any other in or around Collingwood or Blue Mountain.
The distinctive architecture of the homes at Windfall represents an artful, modern and eco-considerate interpretation of Georgian Bay cabins, cottages and mountain chalets in timeless bungalow, bungalow-with-loft, two-storey detached and semi-detached designs.
A true escape from the ordinary, Windfall at Blue Mountain is a place where nature and neighbourhood are in perfect balance. Fully one-third of the land is a nature preserve with wetland preservation areas and other natural features. An extensive trail system will lead through the forest, linking Windfall to its enviable next-door neighbours – Blue Mountain Resort and Village to the west, and the award-winning Scandinave Spa to the east. Blue Mountain’s expansion of the Orchard brings the ski slopes literally to Windfall’s doorstep.
In the heart of the community will be The Shed, a barn-inspired gathering place that will form the hub for residents to network, socialize and relax. Cold-and-hot-water outdoor pools are planned to further promote relaxed living. This remarkable community has been popular since launch day and has received numerous prestigious awards. Families have moved in and are enjoying their new home in the fabulous setting: Phase 3 construction has commenced.
Mountain House at Windfall
A new chapter is unfolding at Mountain House at Windfall, an exclusive collection of 230 modern suites inspired by mountain chalets located near the foothills of Blue Mountain and right next door to Scandinave Spa.
This exclusive mountain community of just 12 buildings is set on 10 magnificent acres in the centre of nature’s four-season playground. Just minutes away are Blue Mountain Village, Georgian Bay, the historic Town of Collingwood and some of Ontario’s most compelling natural attractions.
Wellness isn’t a buzzword here — it’s a way of life. The Mountain House enclave of residences is designed to surround an exclusive amenity area that extends towards the outdoors with impressive views over the naturalized areas, with the gorgeous Blue Mountains as the backdrop. The amenities at Mountain House provide a private club-like four-season playground for residents with many activities available right on site to keep you busy on those days when you might not want to venture far from home.
Mountain House has a connecting trail system at its doorstep, bike repair stations, an outdoor wood-burning fireplace and so much more, all awaiting residents amidst the chalet-inspired amenity building.
The undisputed jewel of Mountain House is its very own pool and spa-inspired space, aptly named Zephyr Springs. Comprised of a sauna, relaxation and fitness room, hot and cold pools, with large landscaped lounge area, residents can enjoy the numerous benefits of a Nordic bath circuit and hydrotherapy every day.
Construction is well underway with Georgian International working to release its second of three phases later this year due to strong demand.
