Metroland • February 6, 2020 – Ever thought of buying a weekend place but concerned about the cost or how much you’ll be able to use it?

For a fresh, affordable perspective on four-season, year-round resort style living 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, making this development a true gem. There are also incredible golf course vistas. All that and yet prices start a remarkably affordable $376,900 – unheard of for cottage country.

The View is in the heart of Ontario’s only true four-season playground. Nestled on Cranberry Trail and backing onto the Cranberry Golf Course, the community is less than a 10-minute drive to both Blue Mountain and the area’s private ski clubs. In addition, it is 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 quaint downtown area with its unique shops and outstanding restaurants either by car or by walking/biking the extensive trail system.

“It’s no secret that this area is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. From cross-country and downhill skiing, snowboarding and snowshoeing in the winter to water sports, hiking and biking in the green season there is never a shortage of things to do,” observes sales representative Jennifer Wootton. “But Collingwood also has a sophisticated side that has evolved in recent years offering residents and visitors everything from a growing number of craft beverage and culinary experiences to wellness opportunities to a vibrant arts and music scene.”

Response to the Sapphire has been enthusiastic and two-thirds of the units have already been sold. 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.

“With so many year-round activities and amenities The View at Blue Fairway offers a vibrant resort style lifestyle that you simply won’t find anywhere else in the province,” concludes Wootton. “And all at a fraction of the price of prime cottage country property where you’re often hard pressed to find things to do if the weather is less than ideal.”
