Barrie and Alliston, just North of the GTA

Latest News


Barrie and Alliston, just North of the GTA

Located on the west shore of Lake Simcoe on Kempenfelt Bay, the city of Barrie is a seasonal paradise with waterfront activities in the summer and wonderful skiing options come winter. It’s one of Canada’s fastest growing cities, and is less than 90 minutes from Toronto.

With more than 90 parks and a beach-lined waterfront, this city emits a tranquil atmosphere on one hand, and a vibrant cultural destination on the other.

Residents and visitors are naturally drawn to the 6.7-kilometre trail along Kempenfelt Bay. This easily accessible path is paved and predominantly flat. Along it, you’ll find three beaches, playgrounds, splash pads, restaurants and cafes. It’s the ideal spot for soaking up a summer breeze, and pondering life’s mysteries.

Significant features

Designed by sculptor, Ron Baird, for the 1986 EXPO in Vancouver, the Spirit Catcher was purchased by the Helen McCrea Peacock Foundation of Toronto and donated to the Barrie Gallery Project (later the MacLaren Art Centre) in 1987. After some fine tuning to ensure the sculpture’s structural integrity against the strong winds of Kempenfelt Bay, it’s still the centre’s largest piece in their permanent collection. The Spirit Catcher was influenced by the Aboriginal myth of the Thunderbird, who is a messenger that carries dreams and desires to the creator.

Celebrate Barrie kicks off the warmer weather season, followed by Promenade Days and Canada Day festivities. On the first weekend in August, Kempenfest features more than 300 artisans, as well as live entertainment, children’s activities and food demonstrations. Seasonal events also take place at the Barrie Farmers’ Market and the Southshore Centre.

Barrie is home to the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre, located in the city’s northeast end. The RVH offers cancer care close to home, as well as a variety of specialized health care programs.

Easily accessible via Highway 400 and the GO train, Barrie offers affordable homes, in addition to a heightened quality of life.

Alliston

Alliston is a settlement in Simcoe County, and part of the Town of New Tecumseth amalgamation in 1991, which also includes Beeton, Tottenham and the Township of Tecumseth. The town grew as a commercial centre for the area farmers. Best-known for growing potatoes, the Alliston Potato Festival continues to celebrate its origins on an annual basis.

Located off of Highway 89, Alliston is a mere 45-minute drive to Toronto, via Highway 400 or Highway 27.

Something for everyone

The Nottawasaga Inn and Hockley Valley Resorts are favourite destinations with a wide variety of sporting activities. The Nottawasaga includes a 70,000-square-foot health and fitness centre, in addition to indoor squash, racquetball and tennis courts. At the 300-acre Hockley Valley Resort, winter enthusiasts can access 15 downhill skiing runs, as well as trails for snow shoeing and cross country skiing. The Trans Canada Trail, Mansfield Outdoor Centre and Earl Rowe Provincial Park also provide opportunities for cross country skiing, hiking and biking.

Sample some old-fashioned rock candy at the Museum on the Boyne, and then tour the museum’s collection of buildings, including an 1851 log cabin, an 1858 English barn, a 1914 Agricultural Fair Building and Alliston’s old town jail.

Formerly a farm implement factory, the Gibson Centre is an historical area landmark. This lovingly restored 1889 treasure features a performance hall, gallery space and a cafe. Downstairs in the Mercer Pub, you can enjoy local craft beer while listening to live entertainment.

Alliston, and neighbouring Cookstown, offer quaint, mainstreet shopping experiences. At Tanger Outlets Cookstown, located at Highways 400 and 89, you can shop at more than 100 brand-name/ designer stores, including the Crocs Outlet, the Royal Daulton Outlet, Under Armour and Calvin Klein

Barrie – Gateway to cottage country open for business

Latest News


Barrie – Gateway to cottage country open for business

Barrie may be best known as the “gateway to cottage country,” but, borrowing from a recent initiative of a certain provincial politician, the city might just as well hang a sign out front saying “open for business.”

Indeed, the days of this city of 141,434 being little more than a popular tourist and getaway destination are long over.

Barrie is a thriving city in its own right. It has long moved on from a bedroom community for Toronto, about 100 kms south, to developing its own increasingly diversified economy, with a focus on education, healthcare, information technology and other sectors.

For example, Barrie recently hosted industry experts, executives, investors and entrepreneurs from across Ontario at the third annual Manufacturing Innovation Summit. Presented by the Business Development Bank of Canada, the event strives to help manufacturers maintain competitiveness and maximize productivity.

Creative economy

Further illustrating a focus on economic development, the City has partnered with Sandbox Centre to make regional resources for innovation and entrepreneurship more accessible to local businesses. Opened in April, Sandbox Centre is the first private sector-led innovation hub in Ontario.

“The rapid pace of change in business and in technologies means that companies are best positioned to succeed when they can learn and share from each other,” says Karen Dubeau, director of creative economy with the City. “Sandbox Centre provides a centralized hub for established businesses, aspiring innovators, and independent entrepreneurs to share expertise, energy and opportunities.”

Director of creative economy? Such a title and position speak volumes about Barrie’s forward-thinking leadership.

It is exactly these types of initiatives that make Barrie so appealing for real estate. Economic development means employment, jobs attract residents, and residents translate to housing demand.

The city’s ability to attract younger residents is influenced by its growing reputation as a place for families and young, active professionals. Recent GO Transit expansion has made it easier for professionals to live in Barrie, where it’s more affordable, and work in Toronto or somewhere along the way.

However, as a smaller centre, Barrie is sometimes subject to swings in the real estate market. Median home prices for the first quarter of 2019, at $505,795, were flat compared to the same period last year. Detached bungalows, however, grew 1.8 per cent, year-over-year.

While at first glance this might not seem like great news, but the slower price growth provides buying opportunities for Barrie’s resident profile – many of them young, first-time homebuyers.

Live, work and play

It’s not strictly business in Barrie, however. Tourism still plays an important role in the local economy, with the historic downtown and waterfront major attractions. The downtown area hosts numerous annual festivals and events such as The Barrie Waterfront Festival, Barrielicious, Winterfest, Jazz & Blues Festival, Promenade Days, and Ribfest and Craft Beer Show.

Barrie is also home to Kempenfest, one of the largest outdoor arts and crafts celebrations in Ontario.

During the winter months, people still flock to the area’s nearby hills – Horseshoe Resort, Mount St. Louis Moonstone, and a little further afoot, Blue Mountain.

Then, of course, there’s the hometown Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League, who play out of the Barrie Molson Centre downtown.

Located in Simcoe County in the northern part of the Greater Golden Horseshoe, about 100 kms north of Toronto, 36 km to Orillia; population 141,434.

Georgian International offers remarkable communities in Barrie-Collingwood-Orillia area

Georgian International offers remarkable communities in Barrie-Collingwood-Orillia area

Active families and retirees are heading in droves to the Barrie-Collingwood-Orillia region for its natural beauty and world-class attractions. Once here, they are delighted to discover that Georgian International, a visionary developer with strong roots in the neighbourhood offers exactly what they’re in search of; thoughtful communities that are an authentic reflection of small town Canada.

Braestone at Horseshoe Valley. Country Estate, rethought

Gas-fired lanterns. A pumpkin patch. A Christmas tree farm. A baseball diamond encircled by corn stalks à la Field of Dreams. These idyllic features complement the farmhouse-style homes that make up the Braestone estate community, one hour north of the GTA in Horseshoe Valley.

Braestone
Braestone

Developed by Georgian International, the 229 homes sit on 556 acres in the Oro-Medonte township. These ingredients, known as “remarkables,” truly capture the uniqueness of living here that appeals to prospective buyers.

Bringing a unique approach to Ontario real estate is a hallmark of the company. “What we’re doing is not what other developers are doing,” says Mike Parker, vice-president, sales and marketing for Georgian International’s Real Estate Division. “In the planning process, we came up with community features that will enhance people’s lives, that will be part of their active lifestyles.”

For example, a toboggan hill is a family-friendly add-on, and a sugar shack can teach residents about the age-old practice of tapping maple trees. “Braestone buyers are typically nature lovers and enjoy being outdoors,” Parker notes, “and that’s why we created remarkables like a skating pond, a berry patch.”

Parker adds that they regularly hold events for the community with the intention that the traditions will continue long after the development is built out. Summer corn roasts with live music, a pancake breakfast fundraiser, and family day horse drawn sleigh rides are just a few.

Besides successful sales, Braestone’s eye-catching offerings and impressive amenities are getting noticed by the industry. It was recognized as Best New Home Community of the Year in 2016 by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association, and its Discovery Centre was named 2016 Best Lowrise Homes Sales Office in Canada by the CHBA. Most recently, the “Thoroughbred” model was awarded Best Two-Storey Design up to 2,500 sq. ft. by the Ontario Homes Builders Association.

Interior flourishes make the Braestone homes visually appealing, to say the least: Floors come complete with tongue-and-groove maple or oak, and porcelain tile is found in the bathrooms, foyers and mudrooms. Master bathrooms showcase an island-style soaker tub.

Windfall at Blue Mountain

Winner of the Simcoe County Home Builders Awards’ Project Of The Year 2017. Georgian International’s popular Windfall is a 609-home community at the base of Blue Mountain that attracts buyers looking for “comfort, character, culture and community with a relaxed way of life,” says Parker.

He notes that “it’s a place where nature and neighbourhood are in perfect balance… with community trails, Georgian Bay on one side, and the Niagara Escarpment on the other the beauty of the natural landscape is simply amazing.”

Windfall

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.

“The semis and detached homes differ from the look of Braestone units with more mountain-like colours and shades,” Parker remarks. But both will feature a trademark flourish for Georgian International developments: Gas-powered lanterns.

“There’s a romantic feel, an ambiance, to lanterns that is special and not done by anyone else,” Parker says.

Buyers can select from well-appointed standard features or upgrade interior design packages that coordinate interior finishes, including flooring, cabinetry, countertops, lighting and other fixtures. started moving in this spring, beginning in May.

When fully completed, the 230-unit Mountain House will consist of two-, three, and four-storey buildings. The terrace suites boast a chalet-style and complemented by a community building, a bike repair station, a sauna and relaxation room, hot and cold pools and an idyllic setting. “Like all our projects, the standard features, such as full, glass-walled showers and exterior gas lanterns, go above and beyond expectations,” says Parker.

Mountain House

Close to Windfall and Mountain House are the historic areas of Collingwood, Blue Mountain Resort and Wasaga Beach, as all three regions are “remarkables” onto themselves for Ontario residents. Nearby activities include boating on Georgian Bay, fishing, snowboarding, ATV trail tours, water parks, golfing, sleigh rides and guided snowshoe hikes.

Georgian International. At home in beautiful Simcoe County

Georgian International is not just carving its own path in the real estate business, which began in 1985. The diverse company’s divisions include Georgian Chevrolet Buick GMC and Air Georgian.

Georgian International has made it its mission to create communities of artfully designed architecture inspired by small town Canada, with amenities that improve peoples’ lives, giving people that sense of home ensconced among mountains, lakes, Christmas tree parks, and skating ponds.

And if that isn’t being Canadian at its most grassroots, we don’t know what is.
