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. Unlike others.

One of Simcoe County’s most influential and recognized names, Georgian International is a dynamic leader in automotive retail and a dominant real estate investor in commercial and residential opportunities, including Windfall, Mountain House at Windfall and Braestone.

Homes and hometown communities that truly exceed buyers’ dreams.

Georgian International creating remarkable communities in the Blue Mountains

Award-winning Braestone in Horseshoe Valley and Windfall and Mountain House in the Blue Mountains, by Georgian International, are among Ontario’s most exceptional and desirable projects.

MOUNTAIN HOUSE

It’s time to take your place in the ongoing story of a best seller. A new chapter has unfolded at Blue with Mountain House at Windfall. This exclusive mountain community was created over a sprawling 10 acres, slope-side, in the centre of nature’s four-season playground. 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, Mountain House offers Blue Mountain chalet living as it was meant to be.

Authentic gas-fired lanterns will welcome you home. You’ll appreciate the natural stone accents and heavy timber frames of the 12 buildings that make up Mountain House, which are inspired by the surrounding forests and mountains. Inside the 230 suites you’ll find gleaming modern kitchens, spacious private terraces, and high-end features and finishes to complement your elegant mountain lifestyle.

What makes Mountain House truly an escape though, is the private club-like four-season amenity facility. At Zephyr Springs, the community’s own Nordic spa-inspired space, you can soak up the gorgeous views of the mountains while you unwind in the sauna, hot and cold pools and source pool. The relaxation and fitness room and extensive landscaped lounge area are the perfect place for yoga, stretching, reading or quiet reflection. The Après Lodge is a secluded social space where family and neighbours can connect, featuring conversation seating, an outdoor wood-burning fireplace and a bike tune-up and parking area. At Mountain House, wellness isn’t a buzzword; it’s a way of life.

Envision all of the incredible adventures to come from the exhilarating to the sublime – hiking, skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, golfing and swimming to laying back in the warmth of the Nordic baths surrounded by snow. Simply magical.

Construction is well underway with Georgian International working to release its second of three phases this year due to strong demand. Units range from 675 to 1,150 square feet and start from low $300,000s.

Georgian International: Creating Remarkable Communities

Georgian International: Creating Remarkable Communities

Creating remarkable communities is a hallmark of the Barrie-based builder.

Bringing a unique approach to real estate is a hallmark of Georgian International’s mission. Award-winning Braestone in Horseshoe Valley, and Windfall and Mountain House in the Town of Blue Mountains are among Ontario’s most exceptional and desirable projects.

Braestone

When you drive down the quiet stretch of road to Braestone‘s main entrance, underneath the leafy canopies of century-old trees, the horse paddocks sharply delineate where the outside world ends and the storied world of Braestone begins. Residents enjoy a secluded, simpler yet refined country lifestyle, with the convenience of being in close proximity to countless forms of recreation and the neighbouring cities of Barrie and Orillia.

At Braestone, families experience authentic “Remarkables,” a term coined for the many timeless amenities that have grown organically from the community’s stunning landscape. A full 60 per cent of the land is set aside as a nature preserve with forests, trails, ponds and more.

There are literally dozens of Remarkables to experience every season. From watching the stars shine atop the future observatory hill called Starfall, to the neighbouring Braestone Farm’s skating pond and maple sugar shack, residents at Braestone can experience this glorious style of living every single day.

The homes at Braestone are inspired by the architecture of the Oro-Medonte region. Their unique architecture combines a simple yet strikingly modern interpretation of country style influenced by the farmhouses, barns and sheds of the Oro-Medonte region with refined contemporary finishing details. Remarkable standard features include covered porches with gas lanterns, hardwood floors in living areas, granite countertops in kitchens including islands, frameless glass showers and smooth finished ceilings. Bungalow and two-storey floorplans have been developed to complement Braestone’s minimum 100-foot up to 300-foot deep lots. Construction is well underway at Braestone, with families already moved in and experiencing the remarkable lifestyle available at the country estate.

Windfall

Set at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment, Windfall at Blue Mountain is an inspired enclave of detached and semi-detached mountain homes next to Blue Mountain Village. This 148-acre master-planned community will more authentically represent the concept of resort living than any other in or around Collingwood or Blue Mountain.

The distinctive architecture of the homes at Windfall represents an artful, modern and eco-considerate interpretation of Georgian Bay cabins, cottages and mountain chalets in timeless bungalow, bungalow-with-loft, two-storey detached and semi-detached designs.

A true escape from the ordinary, Windfall at Blue Mountain is a place where nature and neighbourhood are in perfect balance. Fully one-third of the land is a nature preserve with wetland preservation areas and other natural features. An extensive trail system will lead through the forest, linking Windfall to its enviable next-door neighbours – Blue Mountain Resort and Village to the west, and the award-winning Scandinave Spa to the east. Blue Mountain’s expansion of the Orchard brings the ski slopes literally to Windfall’s doorstep.

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. This remarkable community has been popular since launch day and has received numerous prestigious awards. Families have moved in and are enjoying their new home in the fabulous setting: Phase 3 construction has commenced.

Mountain House at Windfall

A new chapter is unfolding at Mountain House at Windfall, an exclusive collection of 230 modern suites inspired by mountain chalets located near the foothills of Blue Mountain and right next door to Scandinave Spa.

This exclusive mountain community of just 12 buildings is set on 10 magnificent acres in the centre of nature’s four-season playground. Just minutes away are Blue Mountain Village, Georgian Bay, the historic Town of Collingwood and some of Ontario’s most compelling natural attractions.

Wellness isn’t a buzzword here — it’s a way of life. The Mountain House enclave of residences is designed to surround an exclusive amenity area that extends towards the outdoors with impressive views over the naturalized areas, with the gorgeous Blue Mountains as the backdrop. The amenities at Mountain House provide a private club-like four-season playground for residents with many activities available right on site to keep you busy on those days when you might not want to venture far from home.

Mountain House has a connecting trail system at its doorstep, bike repair stations, an outdoor wood-burning fireplace and so much more, all awaiting residents amidst the chalet-inspired amenity building.

The undisputed jewel of Mountain House is its very own pool and spa-inspired space, aptly named Zephyr Springs. Comprised of a sauna, relaxation and fitness room, hot and cold pools, with large landscaped lounge area, residents can enjoy the numerous benefits of a Nordic bath circuit and hydrotherapy every day.

Construction is well underway with Georgian International working to release its second of three phases later this year due to strong demand.
