The communities nestled along the shores of Lake Simcoe are some of my favourite to help clients buy and sell in. For those looking to live an active lifestyle, whether as a primary residence, or a second family vacation home, this area offers everything many of my clients are looking for.Despite several delays over the years, Crates Landing is set to be a new village along the south shores of Lake Simcoe. Accessible to Aurora, Newmarket and Toronto via the 404 extension, Crates Landing makes living that active lifestyle many people dream of easier than ever.
First proposed by developer Brightstar Corporation, Crates Landing experienced financial delays in late summer 2010 and by winter 2011, there was still no movement on the $100 million development, despite being on the planning books since early 2005.
Since then, the Augustine Group has taken over the project and with financing in place the project is once again a-go.
The first phase of the Crates Landing development is the Grand Marina. Here, you can choose between one, two and three bedroom residences depending on your needs and wants: a primary residence or vacation home. Many of the suites will offer lake views with waterfront terraces – the perfect place to enjoy Lake Simcoe’s fantastic sunsets.
Inside, residents can completely personalize their suites by choosing from an assortment of elegant features and finishes. The Augustine Group has employed a leading team of designers who have selected a variety of flooring options, cabinetry and state-of-the-art appliances to ensure a high caliber of design excellence for this upscale property.
In addition to a grand lobby and the exclusive “Commodore Club,” the Grand Marina will feature a multi purpose room, kitchen/bar, gym, sauna, lap pool and infinity whirlpool and stylish deck for resident enjoyment. Additionally, the developers have designed the entire community to be easily accessible by elevator or foot on well-lit and landscaped walking paths.
Lakeside living on the south shores of Lake Simcoe provides residents with an intimate community complete with shops and boutiques, a hotel, restaurant and a neighbourhood pub – all just 20 minutes from Aurora and Newmarket and 40 minutes from Toronto.
For more information about this unique opportunity to live lakeside, I recommend registering with the Augustine Group. And when you’re ready to buy, whether in this community or any other, please call me directly at 289-338-0767.
