If you are a first-time homeowner, entrepreneur or have a flexible work arrangement and are looking for a better quality of life at an affordable price point, set your sights on The View at Blue Fairway in Collingwood. MacPherson Builders’ latest offering in this established golf course community is the Sapphire, a four-storey building with 36 units whose name is tied to the fact that many of the homes have spectacular views of surrounding nature and green space as well as incredible golf course vistas.
“Current Toronto MLS statistics indicate an average house price of $893,729, Collingwood’s average is $588,300, while The View’s prices start in the mid-$300’s,” says sales representative Jennifer Wootton. “So especially for buyers who may have been priced out of the GTA market, this is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a home at an amazing price with the additional benefit of a healthy and active lifestyle in a great community.”
In 2019, Maclean’s magazine named Collingwood one of the best 25 places to live in Canada. The area has a growing tech hub and The Canadian Federation of Independent Business ranks the town first in the province and sixth in the country for top entrepreneurial community. Nestled on Cranberry Trail and backing onto the Cranberry Golf Course, The View is in the heart of Ontario’s only true four-season playground and is less than a 10-minute drive to both Blue Mountain and the area’s private ski clubs as well as steps away from the Georgian Trail and the Cranberry Marina. Residents also have easy access to Cranberry Mews – a lifestyle centre that is home to a variety of businesses ranging from healthcare service providers to retailers and Collingwood’s historical downtown area with its outstanding restaurants, bars and cafes, unique shops and vibrant arts and entertainment scene either by car or by walking/biking the extensive trail system.
Response to the Sapphire has been enthusiastic and two-thirds of the units have already been sold. The remaining 887 square foot homes feature two bedroom and two-bathroom designs. These elegant units run from the front to the back of the building eliminating noisy interior hallways and have in-suite laundry, spacious balconies with lovely views and exterior storage areas. The fact that the majority also have underground parking and the onsite fully equipped fitness/wellness centre with outdoor pool add to the value proposition. Closing dates are scheduled for 2020.
“The View at Blue Fairway is surrounded by natural beauty and offers the perfect combination of resort style living, small-town charm, and amazing year-round recreational opportunities, while being less than two hours from the GTA for meetings and get togethers with family and friends,” concludes Wootton. “In short, it offers buyers a fabulous lifestyle that they simply won’t find anywhere else in the province and all at an extremely affordable price.”
