After first Collingwood Condo almost sells out, MacPherson Builders fast-tracks launch of second building

In response to the overwhelming demand for quality-built condominium homes at an affordable price in Collingwood, The Sapphire – the second building in The View at Blue Fairway has been launched.

“We sold 31 of 36 homes when we launched the first building in The View in late October,” observes sales representative Jennifer Wootton. “We anticipated fairly strong demand, due to the fact it’s almost unheard of to find a quality-built home in Collingwood starting in the 300’s, but even we were blown away by how quickly the homes were snapped up.”

Wootton feels the strong demand can be attributed to a couple of factors. “I think it says a lot about the tremendous value proposition of these homes as well as the reality that Collingwood is the only true four-season community in Canada. And whether you’re a family looking for a weekend getaway place, whether your job gives you enough mobility to relocate or you’re a boomer looking to downsize, the one common thread you’ll find here is the tremendous lifestyle you won’t find anywhere else in the province.”

The View name is tied to the fact that many of the homes have views of surrounding nature and green space, with the Georgian Trail, the Cranberry Golf Course and the Niagara Escarpment serving as the backdrop.

The Sapphire is a 4-storey building with 36 units. The design of the building and the units also helps to explain why the demand for these homes has been so strong, including the fact that the units run from the front to back of the building thereby eliminating noisy interior hallways, have large balconies with lovely views and that the majority also have underground parking adds to the value proposition, as does the onsite fully equipped fitness/wellness centre with outdoor pool.

There are five floor plans to choose from and these elegant suites feature two bedroom and two bath and two-bedroom plus den and two bath designs ranging in size from 846 to 1,015 square feet. Interior highlights include 9’ ceilings throughout excluding drop ceiling and bulkhead areas; choice of laminate flooring in all non-tiled areas; custom designed kitchens with designer appointed cabinetry, under cabinet lighting, undermount stainless steel sink with single lever retractable faucet, granite countertop and 4” matching backsplash, stainless steel refrigerator, slide in gas range, dishwasher and over the range microwave hood fan; bathrooms with designer appointed cabinetry, granite vanity countertops with 4” matching backsplash and undermount sink in master ensuite, full width vanity mirrors, white acrylic rectangular design soaker tubs, frameless glass shower doors as per plan, water-efficient toilets and choice of tile in all bathrooms; stacked washer/dryer; and key fob entry system.

The exteriors of these suites have spacious 136 square foot balconies, glass sliding patio doors, framed glass railing with aluminum balcony rail guard, gas bib connection, locking exterior storage areas and most units have underground parking while remaining units have surface parking.
