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.

Braestone
Braestone

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.

Visit the Windfall sales centre and model home, located at 104 Yellow Birch Cres., Blue Mountains.

Mountain House – the next chapter of Windfall

Set in the heart of spectacular Blue Mountains and close to Georgian Bay, Mountain House is the next chapter of Windfall. Here you can find an exclusive collection of modern suites inspired by mountain chalet-style living.

Mountain House

This exclusive community of just 12 buildings is set on 10 acres in the centre of nature’s four-season playground. With exciting activities just outside your windows and a serene private water-spa with hot and cold pools and sauna onsite, Mountain House is everything you want in chalet living.

The first phase of 70 chalet suites have been delivered in slightly more than 1.5 years. When completed, the community will have 230 suites within two-, three- and four-storey buildings. Phase 2 is currently more than 75 per cent sold, with construction underway. Pricing is from the low $300,000s to mid $400,000s. Sales have been very strong and interest in the community continues to grow at a significant pace.

Mountain House offers chalet-living without the maintenance. Suite layouts range from one-bedroom plus den up to three-bedroom suites, including an incredible loft plan on the top floors (673 to 1,140 sq. ft.). Mountain House recently won Best Condo Kitchen at the Ontario Home Builders’ Association Awards. The exterior architecture is truly inspiring. The stone accents and heavy timber frames reflect the surrounding forests and mountains.

Spend more time living at RiverBend Golf Community by Sifton Properties

At RiverBend Golf Community, Sifton Properties invites you to spend more time living. Residents will tell you that can mean any number of things – more time outdoors, more time relaxing, more time playing golf, and more time connecting with neighbours and friends. Basically, at RiverBend life is simply about doing more of what makes you happy.

Sifton believes that people thrive when they live in a beautiful home, and a friendly community surrounded by nature. Here, the opportunities to socialize and be active 50-plus men and women can significantly enhance your health and quality of life.

“We’ve never felt so welcomed. Our social calendar is jam-packed,” share Rebecca and Dave, residents of RiverBend. “RiverBend is a truly inclusive community. It’s such a nice feeling to get a cheerful wave at the front gate as you return home at the end of the day, and we’ve even been welcomed into many of our neighbours’ homes. At RiverBend, there’s something for everyone. It doesn’t matter your age or ability, your social calendar is filled with great interactive events.”

Residents enjoy membership to the 28,000-sq.-ft. clubhouse, which includes a fitness centre and indoor pool, a casual bar and lounge, a spacious dining room with delicious cuisine, and private meeting rooms for community use. In addition to these amenities, the club plays host to a number of social events developed alongside an enthusiastic social committee. Year-round activities include mahjong, darts, billiards, yoga, gardening club, bridge lessons, travel club and more.

And for those who came for their love of golf, the pristine Doug Carrick designed 18-hole golf course is mere steps from your back door. “With course-side bungalows and golf cart garages, RiverBend exceeds our every expectation,” says Margaret. “With a pro shop and clubhouse only a two-minute golf cart ride from home, RiverBend is a golf enthusiast’s dream. The community is so welcoming and the camaraderie doesn’t end on the course. We play more frequently than ever and there are plenty of other activities. There is no better 19th hole from which to enjoy a sunset and a glass of wine than your very own backyard.”

RiverBend is also home to the LPGA’s Ontario-based short-game “genius,” Gareth Raflewski. Named the 2018 PGA of Canada’s Teacher of the Year, Gareth is one of the best young coaches in golf, an instructor whose love for the sport shows in his desire to see constant improvements in his students. Raflewski has now worked with at least 50 players on the LPGA Tour and even continues to instruct RiverBend members.

Now constructing the community’s tenth and final phase of single-family homes, Sifton Properties is preparing a number of spectacular new lots available overlooking the golf course. In addition, prospective buyers have the opportunity to view a number of quick closing homes. These quick closing homes allow a purchaser to choose new construction, while skipping lengthy build times that may not fit into their moving plan. This makes them a great choice for those looking for a brand new home with a shorter turnaround. Quick closing homes can be outfitted and completed in as little as 30 days, depending on the stage of construction.

Advantages to selecting a quick closing home:

  • Move in faster and enjoy flexibility in a closing date.
  • Walk through the house and get a true sense of the space you’ll call home.
  • Enjoy designer selected upgrades and on-trend finishes that today’s buyers are looking for.
  • Fewer decisions to make means less hassle for those who don’t feel strongly about making every new home selection.
  • Everybody wins – Sifton is motivated to sell the house and often offer incentives that mean more for your dollar.

Visit the presentation centre to learn more. We’ll greet you at the private gates and invite you to explore our model homes, the spacious clubhouse and pro shop, as well as the peaceful streets of RiverBend.

Ingersoll provides the perfect balance between career and quality of life in a safe and friendly community located just two minutes from the 401. Ideal for the commuter family, HarrisView provides buyers with more value for their housing dollar and is quickly becoming the choice for families across Southwestern Ontario.

Live on the edge of spectacular at Three Rivers Claireville by National Homes

Imagine an 850-acre conservation area for your family’s neighbourhood playground. Then picture a stunning townhome with your own private backyard. Add in an incredible price from the $680,000s and you’ll see why National’s Three Rivers Claireville is the hottest community around. It’s simply Brampton’s best new home value!

In this picturesque setting on the edge of the Humber Valley where three rivers meet, National has designed the perfect Brampton neighbourhood. Choose from a fabulous collection of three- and four-bedroom townhomes with contemporary finishes filled with bright ideas for modern living.

The vision for these remarkable designs was inspired by a revolutionary event called The National Homes Blueprint Workshop chaired by IBM’s Director of Design and Head of Worldwide Client Programs, Karel Vredenburg. A group of more than 70 participants, including National homeowners, took part in discussions, presentations and interviews, learning about innovative products from building and design professionals and sharing their thoughts in a thinktank format. You can see the results in the bright ideas that National has introduced here.

Picture starting your morning with a warm shower that automatically turned on with your alarm clock. Imagine the peace of mind if you could see who’s at the door when you’re at work. How much easier to clean veggies if your kitchen faucet turned on with the wave of your hand. How much tidier the kitchen would be if there was one place that the whole family could charge their devices, write messages, keep notes and school forms and everything. What if your home automatically turned the lights off when you fell asleep reading your book? Buyers at Three Rivers can select from a menu of Bright Ideas that will give them more time to spend on the important things.

Located where east Brampton meets Woodbridge meets north Etobicoke, this inspired community will be an oasis of green beauty. In addition to its vast conservation and river setting, a brand new city park will be built as part of the community. Residents will benefit from the landscaped park’s lush greenspace, pathways, and playgrounds.

Living next to Claireville Conservation Area is like nowhere else in the GTA and growing up here is every kid’s dream life. Grabbing a fishing pole and heading out to the river with your dad on sunny Saturday morning. Learning all the names of the horses at Claireville Ranch, taking riding lessons and going out on horseback to explore the acres of forest trails. Hundreds of species of birds, fish, plants and trees as well as white-tailed deer and other small mammals inhabit the natural and forested acres that make up this hidden gem so close to urban life. In fact, Claireville is one of the largest urban parks of its kind.

Three Rivers puts everything at your doorstep. Just minutes away are downtown Brampton, Heart Lake, Caledon, Woodbridge, Kleinberg village, Meadowvale, Toronto’s International Airport, Vaughan Mills and Square One.

Getting around the GTA is easy with the 407 ETR just down the road. It only takes 15 minutes to deliver you to Pearson International Airport, where you can pick up visiting family and friends, or fly off on that dream holiday.

Three Rivers Claireville is a community built on bright ideas. Offering the best of nature and neighbourhood at a great price, the community surpasses any other townhome opportunity. Choose east Brampton’s best townhome value. The first releases sold out quickly.

Silvergate Homes is redefining Niagara living

Silvergate Homes is redefining Niagara living

Silvergate Homes is redefining Niagara living

For more than 35 years, Silvergate Homes has excelled in new-home building in Niagara. Owned and operated by two generations of the Passero family, Silvergate has carefully nurtured a reputation for exceptional quality and a commitment to customer service.

This underlying philosophy hasn’t changed since day one, and Silvergate is now getting noticed well beyond the local new home market. Its two flagship communities, Legends on the Green and Village on the Twelve, are attracting the attention of a growing number of homebuyers from the GTA who are seeking value and luxury in Niagara.

Legendary living in Niagara Falls

An Energy Star-certified contemporary bungalow townhome community, Legends on the Green offers luxury living and architectural elegance. Backing onto the outstanding Legends on the Niagara championship golf course, this rare enclave community of 58 upscale bungalow towns is located in the charming village of Chippawa along the Niagara River.

“We’re extremely proud of Legends on the Green,” says John Passero, president of Silvergate Homes. “The location is second-to-none with its secluded backdrop along the golf course, yet it’s just minutes away from all the amenities Niagara Falls has to offer.”

The architecturally-controlled exteriors at Legends are extraordinary, with a stylish fusion of dark siding, stone and modern brick. Interior layouts and finishes exude luxury, with designer kitchens, spa-like ensuites and spacious living areas.

On the banks of the ’12’

Overlooking a beautiful ravine along the banks of St. Catharines’ historic Twelve Mile Creek is one of Silvergate’s most luxurious releases to date. The sixth phase of Village on the Twelve is a limited collection of two-storey and bungalow urban townhomes.

These homes offer upscale, sophisticated and modern design; architecturally-controlled exteriors to ensure aesthetic beauty and balance within the Village on the Twelve community. Clean lines, numerous windows for bright interiors, innovative floorplans and contemporary styling elevate this collection of stunning homes.

It’s a secluded oasis in one of the city’s most prestigious areas, a rare opportunity in what is considered “Niagara’s Urban Hub.” Village on the Twelve residents are just a short five-minute drive away from the downtown, which offers premier dining, a new performing arts centre and the Meridian Centre sports and spectator facility. St. Catharines is indeed getting noticed, having welcomed world-class acts in recent years, including Elton John, John Mellencamp and The Tragically Hip, to name a few.

Niagara’s growing allure

Real estate in the Niagara Region is booming as buyers from the GTA look to escape an overheated metropolitan market. It’s a perfect place to downsize while locking in exceptional value. GTA sellers can upscale their comfort and luxury, while achieving considerable savings.

Both Legends on the Green and Village on the Twelve are ideal home bases for enjoying some of Niagara’s top amenities. The area caters to millions of visitors every year, so when it comes to conveniences, comforts and hospitality, the Niagara Region’s population of approximately 450,000 punches well above its weight. The options are truly unsurpassed:

  • 88 award-winning wineries nearby including Trius, Wayne Gretzky, Jackson Triggs, Stratus, Peller Estates and Inniskillin
  • More of a beer fan? No need to worry, as Niagara’s Ale Trail offers craft breweries to tempt your palate, including Oast House & Silversmith
  • Hundreds of kilometres of hiking and biking trails to explore
  • Two casinos and the Fort Erie Racetrack, acclaimed as Canada’s prettiest
  • A golfer’s paradise, with nearly 50 courses to choose
  • A foodies delight; from farm-to-table to fine Fallsview dining, there is something for everyone
  • Enjoy Niagara’s plentiful harvests at one of several local farmer’s markets
  • Buffalo and Western New York are easy to get to, opening up a whole new world of shopping, dining, entertainment and professional sports

Better built by Silvergate Homes

The other common theme uniting the two communities is Silvergate’s top-notch reputation. When you select a Silvergate home, you’re selecting a better built home. This includes superior craftsmanship, materials, architecture and design, not to mention personalized customer service that is committed to helping you realize your dream home.

Silvergate Homes is an award-winning, Tarion Warranty builder and RenoMark contractor for a reason, with more than 30 builder awards for excellence, design, marketing and environmental stewardship. Its homes are invariably built to exceed provincial building code standards. Silvergate is also a pioneer in Niagara when it comes to Green building, firmly dedicated to building energy-friendly new homes through eco-friendly practices and technologies.

Braestone Horseshoe Valley offers a new vision of elegant country living

Braestone Horseshoe Valley offers a new vision of elegant country living

Latest News


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.

Symphony Parkside Towns is a Marlin Spring masterpiece in Oshawa

In the City of Oshawa, one of the Greater Toronto Area’s fastest growing cities and Durham’s largest municipality, Marlin Spring is preparing to launch a brand new community that is sure to hit all the high notes – Symphony Parkside Towns.

Orchestrated to provide top quality of life and convenience for residents, this collection of two- and three-level townhomes at 250 Harmony South (at Taylor Ave.) is situated in the midst of curated greenspace with parks and trails for exciting recreational possibilities. The community is close to schools, shops and GO Transit, is only eight minutes to Hwy. 401 and just 80 minutes to Kawartha Lakes.

Residents will also have a short drive to the numerous attractions of Oshawa, which is an evolving municipality that was recently ranked the 6th Best Place in Canada for employment. Transforming into a top technology, healthcare and research hub, Oshawa is not only bursting with opportunity but attracting incredible cultural venues, restaurants and shops to accommodate the needs of this evolving community.

Among the kaleidoscope of attractions in the city are the Robert McLaughlin Gallery, the Oshawa Museum, the Oshawa Regiment Museum, Lakeview Park with its sandy beach, the waterfront trail, and the beautiful National Historic Site Parkwood Estate (the setting for many feature films). Downtown is peppered with vibrant businesses, services, restaurants, pubs, cafes and shops.

Technologically speaking, the city boasts a Regional Innovation Centre geared to new tech start-ups, with plans to be relocated to the former 65,000-sq.-ft. Canada Post distribution centre. As for post-secondary education, Oshawa offers top-tier campuses such as the Ontario Tech University, Durham College, Trent University Durham Campus and the Lakeridge Health Education and Research Network.

The community of Symphony Towns is based on a prairie-modern style of architecture which, at its heart, is warm and inviting, but offers subtle contemporary elements such as larger windows, tone-on-tone colour palettes and glass railings to give a breezy, lighter feel to the community. Inside, the homes will feature incredible finishes, including freestanding tubs, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, air conditioning, glass showers, and tall uppers in kitchens. Plus, each home will feature a large backyard – a rarity in urban townhome communities. If the backyard isn’t big enough, there will be an incredible on-site community park that will be available to Symphony owners and the broader community alike.

Symphony Parkside Towns start in size at 1,552 sq. ft., and are priced from the low $500,000s. Considering its excellent location that combines the serenity of nature and the convenience of local amenities, as well as its attractive price point, the community is sure to sell quickly. Interest in Symphony Parkside Towns is already extremely strong.

Marlin Spring is a well-respected developer with a proven track record. The company’s experience and knowledge span over 60 years in the industry with a diversified portfolio of lowrise, midrise and mixed-use projects in prime locations throughout the GTA. Aside from Oshawa, Marlin Spring is currently at various stages of developing projects in Danforth Village/Upper Beaches, The Beach, Stockyards, the Queensway, Vaughan and Markham. All Marlin Spring projects are in prime residential locations that offer strong potential for long-term value and growth. The company’s vision is to create homes and condominiums of value for generations to come.
