|Sometimes, you just need to find the right space before you can think of unloading the space you’re in. For the past two years my husband and I have been toying with the idea of downsizing. We have a home that is far too big for our needs and we want to be closer to Downtown Collingwood. Our motivation came when we went on a tour of the model homes at Pretty River Estates.|
After two years of hmming and hawing and visiting lots of model homes, we finally decided to put our home on the market because we found a space, in the right location that we could visualize ourselves occupying.
From the moment the model homes went up, our interest was piqued. Driving by the development on Poplar Sideroad, the colour and the architecture of the model homes impressed us and made us want to investigate further. Modeled after the charming architecture of the Village at Blue, the development features high-pitched roofs, with dormers for plenty of natural light. The interiors are equally impressive with spacious open concepts. We visited three model homes and immediately felt that ‘we could live here’. Just at the edge of Downtown Collingwood, close enough to the ski hills…if you’ve got to get into your car and drive…what’s the difference between 5 minutes and 15 minutes? You’re going to spent 10 minutes looking for parking anyways.
An eclectic selection of home designs includes 36 elevations of 17 different models. Homes range in size from roughly 1,300 square feet to 3,000 square feet and prices start at $245,000. Located on the north east corner of Hurontario Street and Poplar Sideroad, the development backs onto trails for walking and biking. Collingwood has an excellent trail network. Plus, it’s walking distance to Collingwood Collegiate Institute.
You can choose from fully detached 2-storey models, bungalows, back-splits, bungalow lofts and semi-detached homes. Pretty River Estates is celebrating their Grand Opening on October 23rd – 25th starting at 10am. Drop by and take a tour. You might just find something that you’ve been waiting for.
