Imagine a countryside setting, with nearby urban amenities. Or endless opportunities to enjoy all kinds of outdoor family activities, minutes from your doorstep. Even better, locally grown fresh produce from neighbouring farmsteads.
One of the last country estate developments in the beautiful Horseshoe Valley, Braestone is 566 acres of tranquil land that will offer the above - a simple country lifestyle with a modern and refined touch.
Situated in the heart of Oro-Medonte, Braestone will be offering a mix of bungalows and two-storey homesteads - with optional loft or finished coach houses available with select models - on 1/2 to over one acre lots, starting from the $500’s.
Driving beneath a leafy canopy of trees along Ninth Line North, past horse paddocks, and finally through a stone gate entryway, is the private, peaceful and awe-inspiring landscape of Braestone.
Varied terrain and a huge hill dominating the site played a key role in establishing the distinctive neighbourhood character of Braestone. Seclusion, respect for the natural surroundings, and optimal views are integral facets of the positioning each and every home. When completed, Braestone will have 229 homes averaging one acre each, while a full 60% of the 566 acres will be preserved in its natural state.
Braestone’s distinctive architecture strives for a simple but modern interpretation of ‘country style’ influenced by the farmhouses, sheds and barns of the Oro-Medonte region. Floor plans have been designed using a ‘continuation architecture’ approach - principal rooms at the home’s core, and therefore more majestic homes with wider, more expandable and more interesting layouts to complement the large acreage lots - while strict architectural guidelines for exteriors will ensure a consistent look within the community.
With four seasons of nearby activities, homeowners can enjoy horseback riding; Nordic skiing; stargazing; walking, biking or skiing the extensive trail system; tobogganing; baseball or soccer in Braestone’s own playing field; ice skated on fish-stocked ponds; and so much more.
Just a short drive away is golfing at Settler’s Ghost, exploring the Adventure Park at Horseshoe Valley Resort, skiing at Mount St. Louis Moonstone, sailing on Bass Lake, or enjoying the many restaurants and boutiques in the neighbouring towns and villages.
Residents will be able to come together for the annual sap collection, sugaring and bottling of the community’s maple syrup, as well as yearly harvest events around the communal fruit orchard and kitchen garden.
What really makes Braestone exceptional is its own 108 acre working farm, and what they refer to as ‘Remarkables’. Horses will graze, crops will grow, Christmas trees will be harvested for the holiday season, and orchards and berry patches will bear fruit. Braestone also will give families the chance to experience first-hand a vanishing way of life in Ontario. The Farm’s caretakers will produce honey, maple syrup, jams and more, while promoting artisan farming that will protect the natural beauty of the rural landscape, provide healthy food for community members, and expose residents, their families and their circle of friends to the natural cycles of the land, from planting through cultivation to harvesting.
With surprisingly achievable prices, Braestone enjoys a great central location which has quick access to Hwy 400, to take you to both Barrie or Orillia, or to Toronto in just over an hour’s drive.
