Collingwood & Stayner, desirable destinations all year long

A winter wonderland in downtown Collingwood. Photography By Dave West

There aren’t many locations that can boast exceptional activities during every season of the year. The south Georgian Bay area includes Collingwood, Stayner and Wasaga Beach. Less than two hours from Toronto, you can swim, boat and fish in the summer, go hiking and biking in the fall, and experience some of Ontario’s finest skiing and winter-inspired sports. Come spring, you’ll be enchanted as the area blossoms into a magical backdrop for enjoying all that nature has to offer.

The town of Stayner

Established in 1994, Clearview Township was the result of the amalgamation of the Town of Stayner, the Village of Creemore and the townships of Nottawasaga and Sunnidale.

Early settlement on the site of Stayner coincided with the construction of a railway line from Toronto to Collingwood between 1851 and 1855. The community of Stayner, which was originally called Nottawasaga Station, developed into a significant agricultural and lumbering centre. Stayner was incorporated as a village in 1872, and as a town in 1888.

Today, this town is developing into a community of its own identity. While easily accessible to larger centres, Stayner maintains its smalltown feel. Close by are two arenas, three baseball parks, two golf courses, as well as Devil’s Glen Provincial Park and Carruthers Memorial Conservation Area.

Stayner’s ‘Music Market & Park It’ features classic trucks and cars on display, and is a weekly celebration of food, art, live music, local and local vendors, held each year in June.

Start a new routine

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, are a favourite for downhill skiers. More than 40 trails are available over 364 skiable acres. Blue Mountain Village (Ontario’s largest mountain village resort) is known for its eclectic shopping and dining options.

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 semi-private, 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.

Nature’s bounty

Inspired by South Georgian Bay’s apple-growing history, the The Apple Pie Trail brings together culinary, shopping, adventure, farms and local experiences.

Downtown Collingwood’s Farmers’ Market and Thonbury’s market both open in May. The Lowell’s and Meaford markets open in June. Get your fill of fresh vegetables, homemade crafts, freshly popped kettle corn, handcrafted signs, unique jewelry and sumptuous baked goods. Rejuvenate your weary bones at the Scandinave Spa at Blue. Soak in the relaxing baths, while taking in the panoramic views of the escarpment – the perfect prescription for spiritual and physical wellness.

Celebratory events

Come February, Collingwood Whiskylicious is extremely popular. Yearly events also include Canada Day, Peak to Shore Music Festival, Keys to Collingwood Street Piano Festival, Black Harvest Festival, Sidelaunch Days, Movies by the Bay and the Art Crawl. And, don’t forget the annual Elvis Festival.

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.

Braestone

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.

Windfall at Blue Mountain

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.”

Windfall

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.

When fully completed, the 230-unit Mountain House will consist of two-, three, and four-storey buildings. The terrace suites boast a chalet-style and complemented by a community building, a bike repair station, a sauna and relaxation room, hot and cold pools and an idyllic setting. “Like all our projects, the standard features, such as full, glass-walled showers and exterior gas lanterns, go above and beyond expectations,” says Parker.

Mountain House

Close to Windfall and Mountain House are the historic areas of Collingwood, Blue Mountain Resort and Wasaga Beach, as all three regions are “remarkables” onto themselves for Ontario residents. 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.

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.

Stonebridge by the Bay

Stonebridge by the Bay is in the heart of Wasaga Beach

Latest News


Stonebridge by the Bay is in the heart of Wasaga Beach

Located in the heart of Wasaga Beach, Stonebridge by the Bay is an intimate neighbourhood of loft townhomes that offers a truly exceptional beach-front lifestyle.

According to builder/developer Mark Crowe, it’s all part of a grand plan. “From the beginning, our vision for Stonebridge by the Bay was to ask ourselves what mattered most when making a community.”

Location, location, location

First, and foremost, a community starts with a great location. At Stonebridge by the Bay, residents simply walk over a bridge to the longest freshwater beach in the world. Come winter, you can access a 30-kilometre cross-country trail system that goes right through town. It’s an incredible spot to view more than 200 species of migrating birds every spring and fall.

Here, you have easy access to Toronto, and are close to Collingwood, Midland and Barrie. Farm-fresh produce is available all year round, and there are lots of opportunities for shopping, fine dining and poking about artist studios and boutiques.

Desirable designs

The style of housing was an important component of Stonebridge by the Bay. Robert Stern-inspired Cape Cod architecture, includes pitched roofs and turret rooms. Open-concept loft townhomes are filled with natural light, and start from $489,899. All homes feature a double-car garage and a main floor master retreat. Street lamps are reminiscent of a nautical theme, which is carried out through the neighbourhood.

The community

Creating a liveable neighbourhood was also high on the list – one that brought friends, neighbours and family together. Within the community is a pool, a music pavilion and the Beach House – a shared event space, with private access to the river. In addition, three kilometres of trails wind through parks and wetlands.

The Stonebridge Town Centre complements the amenities of Wasaga Beach with restaurants, health care and retail – all just a few minutes walk from home.

Building a bridge

It may be a metaphor, but Stonebridge by the Bay has built a direct link to the wider reaching community. A residents’ association has been formed, with a passionate commitment to volunteering. Like-minded people, who enjoy similar interests, are enhancing the companionship of the neighbourhood.

As summer approaches, the excitement mounts for those who are lucky enough to live in a beachside town. And, for those who choose to live at Stonebridge by the Bay, they’ll get to enjoy this positive energy, as well as the natural wonders of the area, all year long.

CONTACT INFORMATION

The Sales Office is located at 1 Sandy Coast Crescent in Wasaga Beach.

PARKS & REC

Collingwood and Wasaga Beach are located on the southern shore of Georgian Bay, next to Blue Mountain, a promontory of the Niagara Escarpment. The region is a major recreational area, noted for skiing, water sports and incredible beaches. There is large network of trails for walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.

The Collingwood Arboretum has both paved and natural trails and is a vital botanical park. Collingwood’s Scenic Caves offer a variety of activities, including cave tours, a treetop canopy walk, nature trails, a suspension bridge, a zip line, gemstone mining, a trout pond and mini golf.

And speaking of golf, the area is home to many great championship golf courses, including Cobble Beach, Lora Bay, Monterra at Blue Mountain Resort, Cranberry Golf Resort, Georgian Bay Club, Batteaux Creek, OslerBrook, and Horseshoe Resort’s Valley and Highlands courses.

Wasaga Beach Provincial Park offers a myriad of activities, including canoeing, swimming, boating, fishing, biking, birding, hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.

EASY ACCESS

Wasaga Beach and Collingwood are served by Highway 26, which runs along the shore of the Nottawasaga Bay, and County Road 124. The towns are also served by a rail link connecting them to the towns of Owen Sound and Barrie. There is a spur heading north through Collingwood to the large grain elevators at the downtown wharf, where trains would formerly load and unload into lake ships. Collingwood has its own transit service, as does Wasaga Beach. Collingwood also boasts an airport, a medium-sized facility about seven kilometres south of the town.

Luxury development in the heart of Collingwood

Whether it’s a ski weekend near Blue Mountain, or summer days lounging at Wasaga Beach, Collingwood has long been a favourite getaway destination for Torontonians. The area’s four-season resort lifestyle, combined with amazing views and the enticing Georgian Bay, is an alluring draw. However, there is now a new reason to visit Collingwood, according to Remo Niceforo of Monaco’s development team, “It’s the introduction of a luxury residence to downtown Collingwood that is really turning heads,” says Niceforo.

DOWNTOWN’S NEWEST ADDRESS

As the downtown district expands, the need for modern urban accommodation increases. It’s a need that the newest development by Stonebrook Development addresses. Monaco is the first, and only, luxury condominium development in the heart of Collingwood’s burgeoning main streets. With architect firm AJT Architects and interior designers MC2 Designs on the team, Monaco is set to create an iconic downtown landmark.

Located at 1 Hume Street, at the corner of Hurontario, this six-storey building will span a full city block, and make a striking impression with its Beaux-Art inspired architectural facade.

SUITE SENSATIONS

Monaco’s 127 suites are available to buyers in a range of expansive layouts, with one-bedroom, one-plus-den, two-bedroom, two-bedroom-plus-den and three-bedroom designs. Suite sizes range from 645 to more that 2,500 square feet, and are priced from the $300,000s.

An elegantly appointed lobby welcomes residents. Each suite boasts 10-foot ceilings and spectacular views from spacious balconies. Natural light highlights MC2’s inspiring design choices, from the imported Italian kitchens and upgraded appliances, to the spa-like bathrooms with Italian vanities. Residents will also enjoy an expansive view from the rooftop fitness centre and the outdoor terrace – perfect for barbecues and al fresco dining.

A stunning penthouse collection includes premium finishes like 13-foot ceilings and Italian cabinetry, along with breathtaking views of Blue Mountain and Georgian Bay. Only a few units remain.

MONACO’S INFLUENCE

“When we began work on Monaco, the need for luxury downtown residences was clear,” says Niceforo. “But we wanted to do more than simply meet that need. We wanted to build Monaco in a manner that was quintessentially Collingwood, with a design feel inspired by the look and lifestyle of the surrounding area. Monaco embodies that inspiration.”

Monaco will evoke a sense of timelessness and grandeur, while honouring the culture, character and history of the downtown area of Collingwood.

CONTACT INFORMATION

The Monaco presentation centre and professionally designed model suite are located at 25 Huron Street.

Creating Remarkable Communities

Choose a full-time home in a pastoral setting, with vacation-like amenities close at hand. Georgian Bay and Oro-Medonte are wonderful lifestyle alternatives.

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

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’ collection features 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 AT BLUE MOUNTAIN

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 2018, this project has been well-received. Construction has begun on the 230-unit Mountain House low rise 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 and relaxation room, as well as hot and cold pools.

ACTIVE PURSUITS

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.

Georgian International has been carving their own path for more than 30 years. In addition to real estate development, company divisions include Georgian Chevrolet Buick GMC and Air Georgian, which operates as an Air Canada Express partner, carrying more than one million passengers on an annual basis.

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 at making 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 their three new developments, you can do just that.
