Cobble Beach – Turnkey Living At Its Best
With the cost of a detached single-family home in Toronto rising to almost $1.6 million, it’s no surprise that families are trading in their Toronto lifestyle and moving to quieter communities. In the last year, Toronto home prices have increased a record 33% in all major housing categories, including townhomes and condo units. Many Toronto-area homeowners are taking advantage of the bubble and selling their properties with the hopes of retiring early or starting their own business with the profits from the sale. Young families who purchased homes 10 years ago for around $300,000 are now selling their homes for over $1,000,000 and moving to smaller communities to live mortgage-free.
Where are these families moving? They’re flocking to places like Cobble Beach, an extraordinary waterfront golf resort community built on 574 acres of pristine land on the shores of Georgian Bay, just 2.5 hours north of Toronto. A far cry from the million dollar ‘fixer uppers’ in Toronto, each home at Cobble Beach is custom built with glorious views of the Bay right in your own backyard. You can choose from a variety of floor plans, models, and builders (or bring your own custom builder) and purchase a single family detached home from the mid $400s. Attached townhome units start in the $380s — less than a third of what many Toronto homes are selling for.
These Energy Star certified homes follow community design standards to ensure each home has a craftsman style exterior that enhances the community and ensures views of Georgian Bay can be seen from almost anywhere on the property. These standards include lighting guidelines with respect to wildlife concerns and meet International Dark-Sky Association objectives.
The master plan of the Cobble Beach community promotes environmental stewardship of the woodlots and water features, including the integrated golf course to enhance the physical and biological community features. On top of the complimentary golf initiation membership (a $32,500 value) with all home purchases, residents have full access to all resort amenities. Cobble Beach offers great outdoor recreation without having to get into a car including hiking, cycling, swimming, fishing, kayaking, sailing, crosscountry skiing, snowshoeing, tennis, skating.
Boasting turnkey living at its best, Cobble Beach provides a great escape from Toronto traffic for vacationers or full-time residents. Cobble Beach is located 10 minutes north of Owen Sound, Grey County’s largest urban community. Residents and visitors enjoy a variety of cultural and outdoor activities in the area including the historic Roxy Theatre, Tom Thomson Art Gallery, the Bruce Trail and Harrison Park — a 200-acre regional park nestled at the edge of the city.
