Georgian Communities believes in the importance of home as a haven

Georgian Communities remains committed to the safety and well-being of all staff, communities, valued clients, and front-line workers during this time of hardship, and offers its support and compassion to all as we as a community continue to stay strong and keep moving forward. In these times of duress, we are all facing uncertainty in the face of unprecedented challenges. As a society, however, our ability to adapt is nothing short of inspiring.

With self-isolation protocols in place, systems and services have rapidly gone digital in order to adapt to the current situation. Our biggest tool in these circumstances has been the opportunity to work remotely, something that has allowed thousands of people globally to continue their important work from the comfort and safety of their own homes, including Georgian’s own staff. But with so many people working from home, it is now that people truly realize the value and importance of a home. Your home is a haven, and spending so much time in it should bring you peace and comfort.

The team at Georgian Communities is working hard to provide unique opportunities. There are three communities that Georgian has committed heart and soul to bring to life outside the city – Braestone‘s classic farmhouse estates, Windfall‘s singles and semis bordering Blue Mountain, and Mountain House‘s chalet-style condos. All of these inspired communities are designed to bring families together. These are places to breathe, places to live, and places to live like no other. Georgian Communities has put endless thought and care into crafting homes that will provide what people truly need – love, safety, and family.

These communities reflect the life of serenity that every homeowner deserves, with homes steeped in natural beauty yet surrounded by convenient amenities. These homes are designed to be welcoming, open, and tranquil. Their locations are hand-chosen to offer the most of Ontario’s natural beauty and charm, surrounded by forested landscapes and endless acres of conservation and farmland. From the breathtaking slopes of Blue Mountain to the meadows and woods of the Oro- Medonte region, life takes on a new meaning in simplicity and nature. With prices from the $300,000s at Mountain house, the $500,000s at Windfall, and $700,000s at Braestone, there are homes for all walks of life. Georgian Communities have been thoughtfully crafted for homeowners to represent the best of what each unique region has to offer historically and architecturally, and provide everything that is important in a forever home.

The beautiful presentation centres are currently closed in order to ensure the safety of staff and clients, but during these times, staff at Georgian Communities is working hard to accommodate the needs of all present and future homeowners. Working remotely, Georgian is offering virtual appointments to accommodate the needs of clients. Staff is available to answer any questions about these special communities when the time comes, and is ready to welcome clients to the ever-growing family.

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.

For more information, visit the Discovery Centre, located at 3288 Line 9, North Oro-Medonte, Ont..

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.

Windfall

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.

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.

Braestone in Horseshoe Valley

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.

Windfall at Blue Mountain
Windfall at 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.

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.

Creating remarkable communities

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, two hours north of the GTA in Horseshoe Valley.

Developed by multi-faceted company Georgian International, the 229 homes sit on 556 acres in the Township of Oro-Medonte where these ingredients, known as “remarkables,” further entice prospective buyers.

Mike Parker, vice president, sales and marketing for Georgian International’s real estate division, says they release homes in phases and, after selling out in the initial first two releases, another 22 properties will be available this fall.

Bringing a unique approach to Ontario real estate is a hallmark of the company’s mission. “What we’re doing is not what other developers are doing,” says Parker. “In the planning process, we came up with community features that will enhance people’s lives, which 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 and a berry patch.”

Parker adds that they are holding 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 horse-drawn sleigh rides are just of few of the happenings planned for Braestone.

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 (CHBA), and its Discovery Centre (aka sales HQ) was named 2016 Best Lowrise Homes Sales Office in Canada by the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA).

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

But Braestone is not the only development Georgian International is known for in Ontario. Windfall, project of the year as recognized by the Simcoe County Home Builder’s Association, is a 609-home project at the base of Blue Mountain, which attracts buyers who want “comfort, character, culture and community with a relaxed way of life,” says Parker.

He notes the “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 co-ordinate interior finishes, including flooring, cabinetry, countertops, lighting and other fixtures.

MOUNTAIN HOUSE

Plans are also underway to release the first units of the highly-anticipated Mountain House, adjacent to Windfall. The 230-unit Mountain House will be built in two-, three-, and four-story buildings. The terrace suites will boast a chalet-style and are complemented by a community building, a bike repair station, a sauna and relaxation room, hot and cold pools and an idyllic setting.

“We will be releasing our initial units this year and, like all our projects, the standard features — such as full, glass-walled showers and exterior gas lanterns — go above and beyond expectations,” says Parker.

Huddled 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.

Nearby activities include boating on Georgian Bay, fishing, snowboarding, ATV trail tours, water parks, golfing, sleigh rides and guided snowshoe hikes.

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, which operates as an Air Canada Express partner where it carries upwards of one million passengers annually.

With Toronto home prices continuing to rise and other communities such as Hamilton seeing similar increases, you can imagine why some Ontarians might look at living in pastoral communities such as Georgian Bay or Oro-Medonte. To be closer to nature, and farther from the concrete jungles, can harken us back to a simpler time. And for a company like Georgian International, they want to give people that sense of a 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.

Editor’s Choice: Georgian International – Windfall

The Windfall at Blue community is growing with Mountain House coming soon

As Statistics Canada data confirms, baby boomers are heading into retirement and, freed from the yoke of work, many are heading to Ontario’s four-season playground. Attracted to the Blue Mountain/Collingwood area for its natural beauty and world class attractions, buyers have rushed to own the gem at Blue Mountain, aptly named Windfall.

Set at the foot of the Escarpment, Windfall at Blue Mountain is an inspired enclave of detached and semi-detached mountain homes next to Blue Mountain Village. From the visionary developer Georgian International, 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 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.

This remarkable community has been popular since launch day and has received numerous prestigious awards. Construction is well underway on its second phase of mountain-inspired singles and semis. Families have moved in and are enjoying their new home in the fabulous setting but a good selection of semis and singles still remain.

MOUNTAIN HOUSE

As the success of Windfall continues, a new chapter is about to unfold with the upcoming launch of Mountain House. Set on over 10 magnificent acres bordering Windfall, Mountain House is an exciting new community of terrace condominiums coming soon. True to the vision of the existing Windfall enclave, the architecture is an artful modern-day interpretation of mountain chalet-style design.

Just 230 mountain suites with contemporary open-concept designs will be offered in one bedroom + den, two bedroom, two bedroom plus loft, and three bedroom options, all with a private terrace. Residents at Mountain House will enjoy their own amenity space that includes both warm and cold pools, an outdoor wood-burning fireplace, a sauna and relaxation room, and more. The first release of only 70 units is anticipated to sell quickly due to high demand.

Georgian International is excited to introduce Mountain House soon and is proud to offer Windfall at Blue Mountain. For nearly three decades, the Georgian brand has been widely recognized for its uncompromising commitment to the highest standards of integrity and quality.
