For people wanting to build a large home on an estate-sized lot close to downtown Collingwood, there are very few choices available.
Last month, a new development called Windrose Valley was launched at the corner of Osler Bluff Road and the Sixth Street extension on the borders between the Town of Collingwood, the Town of the Blue Mountains and Clearview Township. It’s a marvelous location minutes from Osler, Blue Mountain and downtown Collingwood.
Windrose Valley is made up of 43, one to two-acre estate lots together with communal lands that house natural areas, walking trails and a few planned amenities such as tennis courts, a horseshoe pit and volleyball court.
With today’s new provincial policies directed at intensified development, the days of large estate lot developments are all but over which makes this project rather interesting at this point in time. The lots have frontages ranging from 132 to 285 feet with depths ranging from 259 feet to 437 feet; certainly large enough to accommodate a substantial home, triple car garage, pool AND a tennis court.
All of the lots will be serviced by a community water system shared with the Buckingham Woods development nearby. Owners will have to put in their own septic systems. Natural gas, phone, cable and high-speed internet are all available as is municipal garbage and recycling pick-up.
The lots are building permit ready with immediate closings available and, development charges have already been paid. While there are architectural controls in place to protect the values, views and natural land features, the principles have stated they don’t plan to unduly limit the styles and creativity of purchasers.
Lots range in price from $175,000 to $425,000 (plus GST) depending on their location, size, view and situation. Buyers are also currently being offered a bonus of a Social Membership to OslerBrook Golf and Country Club which represents a $5,000 value.
