Spectacular lifestyle communities by Georgian International steeped in natural beauty

Welcome to Braestone, a picture-perfect community located in the scenic Oro-Medonte region of southern Ontario, just minutes from the urban centres of Barrie and Orillia. A community that offers a casual yet refined style of living, that is down home, yet up country.

Since development started almost five years ago, three phases have been completed and 118 homes delivered out of a total of 229 homes. Site work for Phase 4, consisting of just 20 estate-sized lots, is almost completed, and only four lots remain available. Registrations for the next phase have started, with anticipation running high.

The goal at Braestone is to create a distinctive and timeless architectural style, one that combines the elements of early Oro-Medonte farmhouses, barns and sheds. Noted architect William Hicks was chosen to lead the effort and the result is truly unique. A lot of thought went into the details, right down to the authentic gas burning lanterns that come standard on all of the homes.

Braestone’s amenities have grown naturally out of the magnificent landscape. They are called The Remarkables, because they are truly remarkable. One of the most popular is the Sugar Shack, where residents enjoy the age-old practice of tapping maple trees to make syrup. Others include Field of Dreams, a baseball diamond and Skating Pond.

The neighbouring Braestone Farm carries forward the farming heritage of the land with a pumpkin patch, berries and apple orchards. There are miles of trails on the 566 acres that make up Braestone; 60 per cent of the land will be preserved in its natural state.

Braestone won the Best New Home Community 2016 Award from Canadian Home Builders’ Association. Located just minutes from Barrie and Orillia, Braestone residents live in proximity to Horseshoe Valley Resort, Braestone Club and great amenities such as shopping, dining, hiking, boating, skiing and golf.

Windfall – inspired by Blue Mountain

Resonating with the natural beauty and tranquility of Blue Mountain, Windfall is an extraordinary community that offers resort-inspired living. Almost 150 acres in size, a third of the land is reserved for parks, ponds, trails, wildlife and nature.

Each phase is designed to be a private enclave of homes. More than 200 homes have been delivered to date, with a current plan of 606 upon completion. Phase 4 sales are in full swing right now. Prices for semi-detached homes start in the low $500,000s, while detached homes range from the low $600,000s to mid $700,000s. Sales have been incredibly strong, with significant annual growth since inception in 2015.

The magnificent homes at Windfall are the vision of leading architect, William Hicks. They are distinguished by welcoming front porches, open concept plans and exterior colours and materials that reflect those found in nature.

Windfall offers four innovative bungalow and bungalow with loft home designs, eight inspired two-storey home plans and four spacious semi-detached designs. Exterior gas-burning lanterns, smooth finished ceilings, a frameless glass enclosed shower in the master bath, are just a few of the well-appointed standard finishes.

One of Windfall’s best features is its amazing location, next to Blue Mountain Village, the Scandinave Spa and minutes to Georgian Bay. There are literally dozens of activities throughout the entire year. For daily essentials, Collingwood is just minutes away.

At the heart of Windfall’s onsite amenities is The Shed, a rustic yet refined gathering space for neighbours to come together to socialize and create traditions. It’s planned to also feature parkland, outdoor pools and a sauna. Running through the heart of Windfall is a Nature Corridor, connecting trail systems to neighbourhoods that walkers, cyclists, cross country skiers and snowshoers can follow to cross the community from end to end.

Braestone Horseshoe Valley offers a new vision of elegant country living

Braestone Horseshoe Valley offers a new vision of elegant country living

Imagine an idyllic community nestled between gently rolling hills and valleys. A place where you can reconnect with your roots. Where stately pines tower over winding trails and clear water ponds shelter turtles, frogs and migratory birds. A community that offers a casual yet refined style of living, that is down home, yet up country. Welcome to Braestone, a picture-perfect community located in the scenic Oro-Medonte region of southern Ontario, just minutes from the urban centres of Barrie and Orillia.

Braestone’s 275-acre nature preserve is crisscrossed by a comprehensive trail system that walkers, cyclists, cross country skiers and snowshoers can enjoy. This unspoiled countryside, while providing privacy, also offers a meaningful sense of community. Within the Braestone nature preserve, you’ll find century-old forests, wetlands, aquifer ponds and cold-water streams.

Phase 4 now open

These rolling hills, expansive vistas and winding streetscapes form the backdrop for the 100 families who have moved in over the last four years or so. Over the years, Braestone has expanded with more facilities and more families, and today, it’s into its successful fourth phase. Comprised of 20 homesites on a selection of valley and ridge lots ranging from approximately half an acre to more than one acre in size, this new phase offers families an escape from the hustle and bustle of city live with all of the conveniences they need close by.

Braestone’s homes are inspired by the quaint farmhouses and barns that dot the Oro-Medonte countryside and have an architectural style that is sophisticated, timeless and simple in detail. Traditional pitched rooflines and extra deep soffits, integrated with generous porches and lit by authentic gas-burning lanterns create truly charming elevations and inviting streetscapes.

Inspiring models and finishes

Six inspiring main models are available with various elevations – The Cumberland, The Clydesdale, The Morgan, The Belgian, The Thoroughbred and The Oldenburg – ranging in size up to 3,263 sq. ft. These bungalows and two-storey homes come with two-, three- and four-bedroom plans and offer optional lofts and optional finished coach houses.

The homes have been designed using a “continuation architecture” approach, with principal rooms at the home’s core, resulting in more majestic homes with wider, more expandable and more interesting layouts that better complement Braestone’s large acreage lots. Strict architectural guidelines for exteriors ensure a consistent look with the high level of quality that defines Braestone.

Premium interior finishes include vaulted ceilings in Great Rooms, stained treads and stair railing, modern farmhouse cabinetry with granite kitchen countertops, luxurious deep soaker tub in master bathroom, full glass showers, premium engineered hardwood on main floor, high-efficiency furnace, and lots more.

The Remarkables – extraordinary amenities

Braestone’s Remarkables are simple and timeless amenities that have grown naturally out of the community’s own unique and magnificent landscape. These amenities include horse paddocks, future Starfall park for star gazing, Nordic skiing, a maple sugar shack, orchard and berry picking and more. There are literally dozens of Remarkables that differentiate and define Braestone as a special community.

One of Braestone’s most popular Remarkables is the Sugaring Week, which happens every spring. The event draws Braestone residents out to the woods and to the charming Sugar Shack to enjoy the age-old practice of tapping maple trees and boiling the sap to make syrup. This sweet tradition takes place year after year – many tree farms across Ontario have been tapping the same sugar maple for more than 100 years.

Another extraordinary initiative is the neighbouring Braestone Farm, where on 108 acres of fertile land, pumpkins, berries, apples and more are grown. In this peaceful pastoral setting, families have an opportunity to access and experience first-hand a vanishing way of life in Ontario.

Though Braestone lies in the heart of the countryside, it’s just minutes from a wealth of urban amenities. The neighbouring historic community of Orillia is just 10 minutes away and offers small-town charm with modern day conveniences. Within a 10-minute drive from Braestone you’ll discover fabulous dining, hiking, boating, skiing, golfing, shopping and more to suit each and every lifestyle.

Nearby amenities include Horseshoe Valley Resort, Moonstone Ski Resort, Blue Mountain Village, Braestone Club, Settlers Ghost Golf Club, Copeland Forest, Hardwood Cross Country Ski and Bike. Ontario’s famed Muskoka and cottage country is less than an hour away. Lake Simcoe Regional Airport is just 15 minutes away and Toronto Pearson International Airport is just slightly more than an hour from Braestone.

Winner of the Best New Home Community Award by Canadian Home Builders’ Association, Braestone offers families a refined upcountry lifestyle in harmony with nature. Phase 4 is now open, with homes from the mid $700,000s to low $1 millions.

Braestone, where Georgian walks the talk at Horseshoe Valley

Braestone, where Georgian walks the talk at Horseshoe Valley

What began as a vision of what a unique country estate community in the Horseshoe Valley should be, and look like, is now a reality. New home purchasers have discovered the #BraestoneLife, and as this welcoming community unfolds, more residents are choosing Braestone by Georgian International.

Fulfilling the vision

From the beginning, Barrie-based Georgian International understood that building a community out of nothing would take time. Even when the backdrop was 556 acres of lush woodlands, fields and rolling hills, it would take ingenuity and commitment to bring it to fruition.

Georgian has not only created the community that they envisioned, but they have introduced traditions and celebrations, which they hope that the residents will embrace on a yearly basis. To date, neighbours have enjoyed a summer corn roast with live music, a pancake breakfast fundraiser, a horse drawn sleigh ride on family day, and Braestone’s maple syrup fundraiser.

At the skating pond, pick-up hockey games and family get togethers have become the norm. The field of dreams is the site of home runs marked by corn stalks. Spring is heralded by maple sugaring at the sugar shack, the pumpkin patch is on track for fall, and the Christmas tree farm is growing. The lifestyle amenities that seemed so extraordinary on paper, are now in place at Braestone. As a result, Georgian has named these life-enriching amenities the ‘remarkables’.

More than bricks and mortar

When complete, Braestone will consist of a total of 229 homes. Each will be designed to create an appealing, and consistent, streetscape by using progression architecture around a central core. The community projects a modern interpretation of farmhouse-style detached homes; however, each porch is lit with authentic gas lanterns.

More than 100 homes are now occupied. A deep sense of community is forming around the residents’ shared appreciation of the natural setting, as well as the remarkable activities that are available to them.

Not only does Braestone offer a unique setting in the Horseshoe Valley, but it’s easily accessible to Barrie and Orillia for everyday amenities. Both centres have an abundance of services and shopping options, along with stunning waterfront parks where scheduled events and festivals take place. Golfing enthusiasts don’t have to go far to tee off with the Braestone Club and other courses are nearby. And, of course, come winter, a selection of ski resorts are close at hand.

The weather is fine and the welcome is warm at Braestone. Select homesites are still available in Phase 4.
