Georgian Sands is master-planned for maximum enjoyment

You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy Wasaga Beach. In fact, it’ s becoming the fastest growing area for vacation homes, and for those who are retiring and downsizing. Well known for its recreational opportunities all year long, Wasaga’s 14-kilometre sandy beach hugs the shoreline of Georgian Bay. In the heart of it all, you’ll find the newest neighbourhood by Elm Developments – Georgian Sands.

This scenic setting is perfect for water sports, fairweather activities or strolling hand in hand. River kayaking, boating, biking, hiking, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling are all popular pastimes, and Blue Mountain’s downhill ski slopes are close by. Just a short drive away, you can enjoy shopping, dining and entertainment in Collingwood. With so many farms and microbreweries near Wasaga, a culture of farm-to-table cuisine has evolved, along with markets, country fairs and music – all adding up to a vibrant lifestyle.

Perfection personified

The popularity of Georgian Sands surpassed expectations. The first two phases of townhomes and detached homes sold out quickly, and the first phase of homes are now under construction. The newest residents of this community are expected to move in this fall. As demand for these new homes continues to increase, Elm Developments will be releasing further phases.

Townhomes and detached homes offer a selection of three and four-bedroom floorplans with open-concept kitchens and great rooms, as well as main-floor powder rooms. Some layouts feature master retreats on the main level, and Elm Developments has included formal rooms, libraries, mudrooms, home offices and second-floor laundries, as per plan.

Each home has been designed with heritage-style details, and a colour palette that reflects the natural coastal beauty of Georgian Bay. Take a walk along Georgian Sands’ streets for a true appreciation of the architectural accents, including gables, turrets, shiplap siding, shakes and stone – all in colours inspired by nature.

An all-season playground

You’ ll find everything you could possibly need, within a short walk from your home at Georgian Sands. This master-planned community will feature its own shopping area, with stores, restaurants and cafes. Go for a run or take your dog for a walk, and choose a different route everyday. A new four-acre multi-sports park offers opportunities to play softball and tennis. If golf is more your game, you’re next door to a scenic 18-hole course. Georgian Sands positions you close to the downtown beach area in one of Ontario’ s most revered four-season destinations.

Summer Lovin’

The Blue Mountain and Collingwood areas are popular with hikers, mountain bikers, SUP (stand up paddle) boarders and golf lovers. The semiprivate, Cranberry Golf Resort (now known as Living Stone Golf Resort), is the first golf course appointed to the Audubon Society certified course list. It also won the Environmental Stewardship Award. The resort includes an outdoor swimming pool, a hotel, condominium suites, restaurants and shopping.

Golfers can also head to Wasaga Beach to tee off at the The Links at Georgian Sands, followed by a stroll (and maybe a swim) along Wasaga’s 14-kilometre white sand beach.

Wasaga Beach, has long been touted as one of Ontario’s premier tourist destinations, and is the world’s longest freshwater beach. It really is a beach-inspired town with picture worthy views of Georgian Bay, sparkling clean water, and people of all ages enjoying this water-side town in their swim wear and flip flops.

Close by, is the legendary Nottawasaga River, which is great for fishing, and has sparked the odd tale about the one that got away.

From Farm To Table

Downtown Collingwood’s Farmers’ Market opens on Saturday, May 18th. Thornbury’s market opens on Sunday, May 19th; Meaford’s market on Friday, June 7th; and the new Lowell’s market is to open on Wednesday, June 5th.

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, try hiking, biking or cross-country skiing the 35-kilometre Georgian Trail, which offers magnificent views of Georgian Bay and Blue Mountain as it winds its way through Collingwood, and the neighbouring towns of Thornbury and Meaford.

The Blue Mountains, known as such, because of the ever-present eucalyptus trees whose leaves expel a fine mist of natural oils that oft-times appear as a blue mist on the horizon, is a favourite for downhill skiers. More than 40 trails are available over 364 skiable acres. Après skiing, spend time at Blue Mountain Village (Ontario’s largest mountain village resort) known for its eclectic shopping and dining options.

The menu at Twist Martini Restaurant and Lounge is influenced by classic French cuisine – showcasing the freshest of ingredients, as well as an extensive martini and wine list.

The mediterranean-inspired Tholos Restaurant, is owned by Crete native, Tholos. Here, you’ll enjoy an authentic, interactive experience that includes Greek dancing, as well as the Greek tradition of plate smashing.

There are some great shops in the village, including GO FISH GO, which showcases quirky, one-of-a-kind items – from home decor to Read Canoe clothing. At Brights Gallery, you can peruse original works of art by Canadian artists in a relaxed setting.

New collection of homes by Hanson Development Group at a unique Midland lakeside community

New collection of homes by Hanson Development Group at a unique Midland lakeside community

Excitement is building at The Seasons on Little Lake, Southern Georgian Bay’s most unique lakeside community as the first homes get under construction this spring. The initial homeowners in this beautiful master-planned development are eagerly anticipating their one-of-a-kind lifestyle close to nature.

There’s more big news. Hanson Development Group will be launching a new collection of homes soon at The Seasons, giving buyers yet another option to live in a vibrant community within a pristine setting minutes from charming downtown Midland in dynamic Simcoe County. For far less than the price of a similar condominium in Toronto, you could be part of the beautiful community surrounded by nature. The Seasons is affordable, rich in amenities, and only 90 minutes from the big city.

All homes in the new collection will have garages and basements. To help visualize what living in a home at The Seasons will be like, visit the website at seasonslittlelake.com and take the virtual tours of typical homes in the community. The tours illustrate rooms with an abundance of natural light and generous open-concept designs that are perfect for entertaining. The homes are ideal for permanent or seasonal living and are distinguished by beautiful quality finishes.

For Doug and Karen Hill, the decision to purchase at Seasons was an easy one. “We were looking for a place outside of city where we could slow things down and really connect with nature,” said Karen. “We were also impressed with the broader vision for this community. It seems like a lot of consideration and detail has been placed on ensuring Seasons caters to those seeking a healthy and active lifestyle,” added Doug.

The Seasons offers contemporary condominium towns and semis, designed by a multi-award winning team of international talent. The community is set on approximately 247 acres comprised of woods, ponds, trails and open spaces adjacent to beautiful Little Lake. An extensive trail system connects the five distinctive and innovative parks of the community. The lifestyle at Seasons will be healthy and enjoyable, with a wealth of outdoor activities at residents’ doorsteps, including hiking, biking, paddle-boarding, kayaking, swimming, canoeing and sailing. Homeowners will also enjoy birdwatching and wildlife settings close to home. Residents can also drink in the beauty of the natural surroundings at a more leisurely pace, while they walk, meditate or take in sunrises or sunsets by the lake.

A vibrant 10,000-sq.-ft. Members Club will offer further recreational and social amenities within walking distance of the homes, with indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centre, party room, kitchen, library and meeting room. The club will be a hive of activity, with a busy calendar of events, courses and clubs.

Homebuyers will enjoy another added value: all current purchasers or homeowners and those who purchase prior to Sept. 1, 2019 will be offered a two-year social membership at the nearby Midland Golf and Country Club. The club was founded in 1919 by local businessman James Playfair, designed by Nicol Thompson, then redesigned by Thompson student Doug Carrick in the early 1990s. The result is an 18-hole course that reflects heritage and classic design and provides a challenge for casual and advanced golfers.

The Seasons will be a model of environmentally friendly, sustainable development. Approximately 100 acres of greenspace and parks will be transferred to the Town of Midland and permanently protected. Measures will be taken to preserve and protect the area’s natural landscape and native flora and fauna. Little Lake and the nearby 3,000-acre Wye Marsh nature reserve are environmentally protected for the enjoyment of the Midland community.

Although The Seasons’ setting is peaceful and natural, it’s close to numerous conveniences, including big box stores, unique boutiques, banks and restaurants. The Town of Midland also has a full complement of health and wellness professionals and services, including the new Georgian Bay Hospital.

Georgian International: Creating remarkable communities

Georgian International – creating remarkable communities

Latest News


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. The Après Lodge is a secluded social space that features conversation areas – perfect for meeting up with friends and family. There’s also an outdoor, wood burning fireplace, a bike tune-up and parking area.

It’s all in the details

Authentic, gas-fired lanterns will welcome you home. Inspired by the surrounding forests and mountains, the stone accents and heavy timber frames are natural architectural enhancements on the 12 buildings that make up Mountain House. A total of 230 suites range in size from 675 to 1,150 sq. ft., and start from low $300,000s. Each unit includes a well-designed contemporary kitchen and a spacious private terrace. 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. Here, all of your available time is spent doing the things that you want to do – from the exhilarating to the sublime. 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. Mountain House was recently awarded Project of the Year by the Simcoe County Home Builders’ Association. Construction is well underway, and due to popular demand, Georgian International is poised to release its second of three phases.

The natural wonders of Collingwood

Latest News


The natural wonders of Collingwood

By Cece M. Scott cecescott.com

Incorporated as a town in 1858, Collingwood became a shipping hub for products that were destined for the upper Great Lakes ports of Chicago and Thunder Bay. For more than a century, shipbuilding was the town’s main industry. In 1986 the shipyards were closed, and the waterfront is now a revered leisure destination.

Bring it on

Located on the southern end of Georgian Bay, Collingwood is the gateway to the Blue Mountains, where skiing, snowboarding, shopping and fine dining offer the best that winter has to offer.

Blue Mountain is Ontario’s largest village resort, just 90 minutes north of Toronto and 11 kilometres west of Collingwood. There are 43 ski and snowboard trails, 365 skiable acres and a vertical drop of 720 feet. At the base of the mountain, The Village features more than 45 distinctive restaurants, bars and retail shops. Along with the popular Scandinave Spa, visitors can also enjoy the village’s two onsite spas.

Off-hill winter activities include tennis, the aquatic centre, snowshoeing, and new Woodview Mountaintop Skating Trail at the top of Blue.

With the growing popularity of Winter Fat Biking, mountain bikers can now spin their wheels all year long. Fat bikes use tires that are inflated with less air pressure, which make navigating through snowy terrain a fun way to improve balance and strengthen winter legs.

WHET YOUR WHISTLE

The Whiskylicious festival, running from Feb. 1 to 12, is a whiskey-infused celebration of local food. The outdoor ice bars and culinary pairings are inspired by Collingwood Whiskey – a toasted, Maplewood-finished Canadian blend. Located in the downtown core, the festival is a showcase of signature chef dishes, music, arts and brewers.

It’s the 10th anniversary of the The Apple Pie Trail – and apple pie is just the beginning. Inspired by South Georgian Bay’s applegrowing history, the mighty apple is celebrated with a culinary adventure trail, farms, shopping and local experiences.

Take the five-kilometre trek across southern Ontario’s longest suspension footbridge, and through the trails of Scenic Caves Nordic Centre.

SUMMER THRILLS

The distinctive shoreline and blue waters of Georgian Bay, mixed with the area’s rich marine history, are natural highlights for all types of boaters.

The Ridge Runner Mountain Coaster (Ontario’s first) is a one-km ride through the Niagara Escarpment’s diverse terrain. Drivers can reach an exhilarating 42 kilometres per hour.

Popular golf courses in the area include the 18-hole, par 71 Duntroon Highlands Golf Club, which offers spectacular vistas of Collingwood, Stayner and Blue, as well as the Blue Mountain Golf & Country Club, The Georgian Bay Club and Batteaux Creek Golf Club.

STROLLIN’ ALONG

With 60 kilometres of four-season, well-marked, multi-use trails, touring around Collingwood is perpetually pleasurable. The downtown core is jam-packed with trendy clothing stores, spas, galleries, fine dining, artisan cafes, live music venues, pubs and bars, in addition to dozens of art galleries and studios. Colourful panels and murals are creative reminders of Collingwood’s historical past, spanning more than two centuries.

Visitors and residents are passionate about the The Good Food Stroll – a walking or biking tour that showcases Collingwood’s love affair with food. Much is sourced from local farmers, and includes restaurant pit stops, cafes, specialty food outlets, food markets, cafes and sweet shops.

THE SPIRITS OF COLLINGWOOD

The soil and unique climate associated with this region are key elements in the making of the distinctive wine at Georgian Hills Vineyards. During the winter, visitors can snowshoe through the vineyards and enjoy artisanal cheeses and a glass of wine after their trek.

Collingwood’s craft breweries, include Northwinds Brewhouse & Kitchen, The Collingwood Brewery and Side Launch Brewing Company Inc. (named for the town’s shipbuilding industry).

Meaford is the heart of Ontario’s apple country. Stayner and Thornbury, a short drive from Collingwood, offer eclectic variations of the small town experience, and numerous pick-yourown farms en-route.

Comprised of a sauna, relaxation and fitness rooms, hot and cold pools, as well as a large landscaped lounge area, residents can soak up the health benefits of a nordic bath circuit, along with hydrotherapy, every day of the week.

One-bedroom plus den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom plus loft, and three-bedroom suites are available – all with a private outdoor terrace. Buyers can select from superior standard features, or choose from upgraded interior design packages that coordinate interior finishes like flooring, cabinetry, countertops and lighting.

The Seasons on Little Lake

Southern Georgian Bay lakeside community

Construction has now begun at The Seasons On Little Lake. The first residents of this idyllic, Simcoe County community will be experiencing all that it has to offer come 2019 – and many of them can’t wait.

Future home owners and local residents attended a much-anticipated groundbreaking of the master-planned community in late May. Set along the shores of Little Lake, minutes from downtown Midland and only 90 minutes from Toronto, The Seasons on Little Lake offers a one-of-a-kind home ownership opportunity.

Destined to become one of southern Georgian Bay’s finest residential developments, the first phase by the Hanson Development Group is now well under way. The Maples collection includes one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom townhomes, as well as semi-detached homes that range in size from 867 to 1,599 square feet. Priced from $279,900, the value of these beautifully designed homes is evident. Monthly maintenance fees range from $199 to $337, making life at The Seasons On Little Lake very affordable.

“We’re very proud to, officially, kick off the construction for our development here in Midland,” says Mark Hanson, president of Hanson Development. “We’re continuing our strong commitment to this wonderful community. The next few years will prove to be very exciting as the community of Seasons grows.”

A 10,000-square-foot Members Club will offer social and recreational amenities within walking distance of the homes. It will include indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness centre, a party room, a kitchen, a library and a meeting room. With all that it has to offer, the club is expected to be a hive of activity, with a busy calendar of organized groups, events and classes.

With a wealth of outdoor activities like hiking, biking, paddle-boarding, kayaking, swimming, canoeing and sailing, an active and healthy lifestyle is most-certain at The Seasons On Little Lake. Surrounded by nature, an extensive trail system will connect the parks and various features of the community. The tranquil setting is comprised of forests, ponds, trails and open spaces.

Approximately 100 acres of parks and greenspace will be transferred to the town of Midland, and permanently protected.

Little Lake, as well as the nearby 3,000-acre Wye Marsh nature reserve, are environmentally protected for the enjoyment of the Midland community.

In addition to the built-in amenities and facilities at The Seasons, this neighbourhood is positioned to take advantage of an extended community that includes golf courses, marinas, shops, services and restaurants. The town of Midland is an exciting hub, and also offers a full complement of health and wellness professionals, including the new Georgian Bay Hospital.

EDITOR’S CHOICE: Georgian International

Live Remarkably by choosing a home in a pastoral setting with vacation-like amenities close at hand

Developed by the multifaceted company Georgian International and recognized as the Best New Home Community in Canada (2016) by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA), as well as its award-winning sales centre, Braestone Estates continues to gain recognition for the down-home, up-country lifestyle community that it promotes.

Located in Oro-Medonte, within the beautiful Horseshoe Valley, the 229 homes at Braestone are situated on 566 acres of aesthetically appealing landscape. Braestone is well-known for its distinctive architecture, which is a modern interpretation of the country-style dwellings of the Oro-Medonte region.

Born of the land, Braestone’s Remarkables feature timeless designs that are a natural reflection of the magnificent landscape surrounding the community. Remarkable experiences that all homeowners can enjoy include horseback riding and Nordic skiing, as well as picking seasonal fruit, tapping maple sugar trees, playing baseball and hiking on the private trail system.

WINDFALL

In addition to the award-winning community of Braestone, Georgian International is building a lifestyle community at the base of Blue Mountain. The Windfall at Blue Mountain encompasses 148 acres, one-third of which will be dedicated to parks, ponds and trails, as well as wildlife and nature preservation areas.

Winner of Simcoe County Home Builders’ Association’s Project of the Year (2017), the community of Windfall includes a wonderful selection of mountain-chalet-inspired detached and semi-detached designs.

MOUNTAIN HOUSE

The newest project by Georgian International is Mountain House at Windfall. Released in January, this project has been well-received. Construction has begun on the 230-unit Mountain House lowrise development, which is positioned in an idyllic setting.

Two-, three-, and four-storey buildings feature chalet-style terrace suites, complemented by a community building and a bike repair station, in addition to a sauna, relaxation room, as well as hot and cold pools.

Collingwood, Blue Mountain and Wasaga Beach are all easily accessible from Windfall and Mountain House. There’s no shortage of things to do. Nearby activities include boating and fishing on Georgian Bay, as well as skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, water parks, golfing and hiking.

CREATING DIVERSITY

In addition to their residential real estate projects, Georgian International acquired the former Orillia Golf & Country Club in 2017. Since then, the course has been renamed Braestone Club and is a stone’s throw away from the development that shares its name. The company has begun to revitalize the course, and has plans to include a multipurpose club house and events venue.

Real estate prices continue to rise in Toronto, and Hamilton is experiencing major growth, making home ownership out of reach for many. New home purchasers are now looking to make their full-time home in a more pastoral setting with vacation-like amenities close at hand. Georgian Bay and Oro-Medonte are wonderful lifestyle alternatives. Georgian International’s tagline is “Live Remarkably.” At any one of its three new developments, you can do just that.

Monaco Condominiums

Stonebrooks new condo offers reasonably priced housing nestled along the shores of Georgian Bay

The GTA’s affordable housing problem is not just affecting first-time buyers. Empty nesters and retirees, as well as those simply looking for an upgrade, are finding it more and more difficult to enjoy the offerings of Toronto’s urban living without breaking the bank.

The good news is that there does seem to be a solution on the horizon.

Homebuyers in growing numbers are looking to the myriad towns that surround the GTA for reasonably priced housing that does not compromise on luxury and lifestyle.

A town like Collingwood, nestled along the shores of Georgian Bay, is just ninety minutes from Toronto’s work and play district. The town itself is enjoying a cultural revitalization, with gourmet restaurants, museums, and boutique stores now dotting the downtown. And with the development of real estate projects like Monaco Condominiums, high-end living is also within reach.

“Sixty per cent of our buyers so far are from the GTA,” says Monaco’s president, Remo Niceforo. “Monaco provides them with the amenities and living space that they desire, but at a real value for their money.”

The six-storey, 127-unit Monaco property is scheduled for occupancy in late 2020, with unit prices ranging from $369,000 to more than $2-million. Monaco offers residents plenty of choice in suite design, with one-, two- and three-bedrooms units.

All suites boast 10-foot ceilings, with detailed Italian cabinetry and engineered hardwood among many other features. And luxury living abounds with the three Signature Penthouse Suites to be exclusively released soon. These stunning boast 13-foot ceilings, private rooftop terraces and pools.

“Imagine being able to overlook Blue Mountain from the comforts of your very own pool,” says Niceforo. “You can have a sophisticated and elegant lifestyle at Monaco and still be steps away from some of Ontario’s best water and leisure activities… all year round!”

Collingwood really is a four-season wonderland, with boating, hiking, fishing, skiing and snowboarding at your doorstep. The options are endless for adults and young kids alike. And parents surely enjoy the small-town feeling that Collingwood has maintained, as last year’s census numbers rank Collingwood as one of the fastest growing communities in Canada.

“We are excited to provide big-city lifestyle and amenities in the heart of downtown Collingwood,” says Niceforo. “But Monaco is committed to upholding the small-town charm that distinguishes this historic area.”

Developments like Monaco Condominiums, in towns like Collingwood may indeed offer the solution for homebuyers hoping for a luxury lifestyle at a fraction of the price.

To that end, Stonebrook brought A. J. Tregebov Architects on board, to design Monaco such that it would fit seamlessly within the town’s surrounding heritage buildings and aesthetic. As a result, Monaco Condominiums is certain to become a downtown Collingwood landmark.

Bylaws regulating development make it nearly impossible to produce another project such as this one, says Niceforo. Monaco Condominiums is located at Hurontario and Hume Streets and is located on the only lands designated for condo development in the town’s Heritage Conservation District.

Visit the Presentation Centre, located at 25 Huron Street. The Presentation Centre and professionally designed model suite are open from noon to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, and from noon to 5 p.m. weekends; closed Tuesdays.
