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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

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.
