Final chapter at Braestone Estates bares the hallmarks of all Georgian Community projects – heart and soul
January 19, 2022
Enter a world unlike any other at Braestone Estates. This unique community tells a tale of connection – with the land, with history and with each other. These are the hallmarks of Georgian Communities, which puts heart and soul into every new home.
Builders of quality homes across southern Ontario, it’s not simply the attention to detail or superior craftsmanship that sets Georgian Communities apart. Driven by the desire to provide incredible neighbourhoods that embody the timeless values of community, the company strives to build homes in unique locations carefully selected for their proximity to nature and connection to an enriched lifestyle. Over the past two years, countless families have left the GTA in search of a community in touch with nature, and have found homes with Georgian Communities. Because these are places where families and friendships will grow, and where every resident can live remarkably.
Rolling hills and lush countryside
Inspired by the rolling hills and lush countryside of the Oro-Medonte region of Horseshoe Valley, Braestone was designed as a reimagining of the classic Country Estate. The keystone of this community is Braestone Farm, a fully-functional working farm that sets the tone for the entire neighbourhood. Horses graze in green fields, crops grow year after year, and the beautiful landscape transports you to a simpler time. Every element of this neighbourhood touches on the inspiration of the farm, from architecture and interiors to amenities – even the street names reflect these values, each chosen for the horses that were so integral to the history of the land.
More than 560 acres of tranquil countryside. Incredible estate lots averaging one acre for every family. Panoramic views of nature. Combined with the unique character of the modern farmhouse architecture and unparalleled amenities, life at Braestone sounds too good to be true. Yet from planning to production and beyond, it continues to live up to every promise. Its nature has been praised by countless happy homeowners, but also recognized for various awards on an international level, including Best New Home Community from the prestigious CHBA Awards.
The truest sense of community and connection is built here, where families live together around the berry patches, orchards and nature preserves. Residents of Braestone have access to the neighbouring Braestone Farm and its bounty, with fresh produce and honey available for purchase to make eating locally grown food easier than ever. Starfall Park brings you closer to the stars, a series of ponds can be enjoyed throughout the seasons, and an extensive trail system invites exploration. These are just a taste of Braestone’s Remarkables, born of the natural landscape to offer residents an enriching lifestyle leagues beyond the experiences that can be found in a big city. From a toboggan hill and a Christmas tree farm and beyond, the Remarkables are even bigger than your imagination.
With so much available right at home, residents of Braestone have everything they need, and more. But not far from the farm are even more opportunities for an incredible lifestyle. Horseshoe Valley and Copeland Forest are just around the corner, with Braestone Club – where an extraordinary new clubhouse and The Ktchn restaurant offer yet another remarkable amenity – only minutes from home. Opportunities to ski, golf, explore and dine are as endless as the horizons, and between Barrie and Orillia, city conveniences are never far.
Many exciting things are happening at Braestone in 2022. This February, perfectly timed for Family Day weekend, a fun family charity event will be held in support of the Simcoe Muskoka Regional Cancer Centre. A resident-based volunteer-run fundraiser, the Braestone Winter Classic is a pond hockey tournament to be held at Braestone Farm with support from Georgian International – parent company of Georgian Communities – and Braestone Farm itself, as well as The Ktchn restaurant. This will be the inaugural event of a planned annual fundraiser, which displays exactly how the values of community at Braestone have already grown strong in the first phases of the neighbourhood.
As the community continues to grow, Georgian Communities will be releasing the very last phase of Braestone this year. Scheduled for early 2022, Phase 8 is a uniquely private enclave of just 16 homesteads located on Friesian Court, where it will be separate but also inclusive to the rest of the neighbourhood. Residents will still have convenient access to all of Braestone’s Remarkables from a short path through the trail networks across the property, yet benefit from a quiet, secluded cul-de-sac.
This will be the grand finale of this incredible community, but its story will live on in every family that calls Braestone home and every beloved memory made here.
