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.

Georgian International’s Braestone walks the talk in the Horseshoe Valley

Georgian International’s Braestone walks the talk in the Horseshoe Valley

What began as a vision of a truly unique country estate community in the Horseshoe Valley, #BraestoneLife is now a beautiful reality for the fortunate families who live here. Happily, there is still room for more residents as this welcoming community unfolds.

The Skating Pond has already seen many a pick-up hockey game and figure skating practice. 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 Christmas Tree farm is growing, and the pumpkin patch is on track for fall. The many lifestyle amenities that made living at Braestone look so extraordinary on paper are now in place. Braestone calls them Remarkables, life-enriching amenities that foster a deeper, richer connection with the land.

From the beginning, Barrie-based Georgian International understood that building a community out of nothing takes time, even if the backdrop is a remarkable 556 acres of green fields, lush woodlands and rolling hills. Intending to set traditions that will take hold and continue, the company has held community events; summer corn roasts with live music; a pancake breakfast fundraiser; horse-drawn sleigh rides on Family Day; Braestone maple syrup fundraiser; any excuse for a get together.

More than brick and mortar are the connections between the residents who live here, and these will naturally build and evolve over time. With more than 100 homes now built and occupied, a deep sense of community is forming around residents’ shared love of the natural setting unlike any other and the activities that the land affords them.

When complete, Braestone will consist of a total of 229 homes, each one a unique expression of its owners, yet designed to create an appealing and consistent streetscape using progression architecture around a central core. Authentic gas lanterns will light the porches of these modern interpretation of farmhouse-style detached homes.

Everyone has a unique take on life, and being in the Horseshoe Valley in the heart of everything you love, offers you a world of activities that will satisfy most everyday needs, and more. Braestone is close to Barrie and Orillia, with numerous malls, shops, markets to choose from. Both centres boast stunning waterfront parks to enjoy the beaches, as well as scheduled events and festivals. Golfing enthusiasts don’t have to go far to tee off – Braestone Club and other courses are nearby. Outdoor fun doesn’t end when the snow falls, either. Ski resorts are dotted around the local neighbourhood and Blue Mountain is a short drive away.

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.

Georgian International walks the talk at Braestone in Horseshoe Valley

What began as a vision of a truly unique country estate community in Horseshoe Valley, #BraestoneLife is now a beautiful reality for the fortunate families who live there. Happily, there is still room for more residents as this welcoming community unfolds.

The skating pond has already seen many a pick-up hockey game and figure skating practice. 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 Christmas tree farm is growing, the berries are ready to be picked, and the pumpkin patch is on track for fall. The many lifestyle amenities that made living at Braestone look so extraordinary on paper are now in place. Braestone calls them Remarkables, life-enriching amenities that foster a deeper, richer connection with the land.

Mike Parker, vice-president of sales and marketing for Georgian International‘s real estate division, was an early purchaser before he joined the company. He says, “My backyard faces Braestone Farm and, as I sit on my porch, I marvel at the progress of this community.”

From the beginning, Barrie-based Georgian International understood that building a community out of nothing takes time, even if the backdrop is a remarkable 556 acres of green fields, lush woodlands and rolling hills. Intending to set traditions that will take hold and continue, the company has held community events: Summer corn roasts with live music; a pancake breakfast fundraiser; horse drawn sleigh rides on Family Day; Braestone maple syrup fundraiser; any excuse for a get together. Staying true to the intention and sustaining it through the building years to give it stability is important to everyone at Braestone.

More than brick and mortar are the connections between the residents who live there, and those that will naturally build and evolve over time. With more than 100 homes now built and occupied, a deep sense of community is forming around residents’ shared love of the natural setting unlike any other and the activities that the land affords them.

Groups have naturally started to form, giving expression to this vibrancy and lifestyle that draws residents to Braestone. A hiking club is one recent example, who meet at a set time before setting off to explore the nature preserve that winds through Braestone. Dog owners, too, are becoming friends as they walk the fields and trails – and so are their four-legged pals.

“The people who live here are inherently nature lovers and enjoy being outdoors, so it’s natural they would join with their neighbours for a hike,” says Mike, adding, “Although there is still work to do, the vision has taken root and is being enjoyed among the families who now call this remarkable community home.”

The children of Braestone have access to many great schools nearby, including the Oro-Medonte Forest School at Horseshoe Resort where kids aged two to 12 spend anywhere from half a day to full day outdoors exploring and learning amid nature’s splendour.

When complete, Braestone will consist of a total of 229 homes, each one a unique expression of its owners yet designed to create an appealing and consistent streetscape using progression architecture around a central core. Authentic gas lanterns will light the porches of these modern interpretation of farmhouse-style detached homes. Interiors reflect the natural setting and include classic quality tongue-and-groove engineered hardwood flooring, with designer tile in the foyers, bathrooms and mudrooms. Optional freestanding tubs are set in front of dreamy views over the valley, inviting a relaxing soak to refresh.

Everyone has a unique take on life and being in Horseshoe Valley in the heart of everything you love offers you a world of activities that will satisfy most everyday needs, and more. Braestone is close to Barrie and Orillia with numerous malls, shops, markets to choose from. Both centres boast stunning waterfront parks to enjoy the beaches as well as scheduled events and festivals. Golfing enthusiasts don’t have to go far to tee off – Braestone Club and other courses are nearby. Outdoor fun doesn’t end when the snow falls either. Ski resorts are dotted around the local neighbourhood and Blue Mountain is a short drive away.

Braestone is well on its way to becoming one of the prettiest new home and lifestyle communities in the country, offering vitality and activity. You are invited to join the story. Some homesites are still available in Phase 4, so hurry in for a site tour. The weather’s fine and the welcome is warm.

Georgian International – creating remarkable communities

One of the hallmarks of Georgian International‘s success is the unique approach the company brings to each project. As a result, it is known for some of the most exceptional and desirable communities, such as the award-winning Braestone in Horseshoe Valley, and Windfall and Mountain House in the Blue Mountains.

Mountain House at Windfall

Bridging the gap between wild and wondrous, Mountain House at Windfall is exactly what you’d imagine chalet living at Blue Mountain to be like. This exclusive mountain community was created slope-side, over a sprawling 10 acres, in the centre of nature’s four-season playground. In addition, it’s 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.

A way of life

The private, club-like, four-season amenity facility takes Mountain House to the next level. Escape to Zephyr Springs, the community’s own Nordic spa-inspired space. Here, you can soak up the gorgeous views of the mountains, while you unwind in the sauna, hot and cold pools, and the source pool. The relaxation and fitness room, as well as the extensive landscaped lounge area, are perfect for yoga, stretching, reading or quiet reflection.

High-end features and finishes complement an elegant mountain lifestyle.

Now’s the time

Mountain House is the ideal location to enjoy nature year-round. And while many people desire this type of lifestyle, the ongoing maintenance required throughout the seasons is a deterrent.

Finish off a perfect day of hiking, skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, golfing or swimming by laying back in the warmth of the Nordic baths – extra magical during the winter months.
