Friday Harbour

There is a terrific new lifestyle community being touted for Lake Simcoe, at the north east end of the city of Barrie on Big Bay Point that is full of dreams and promise called Friday Harbour.

The developers enthusiastically state that cottage living has been reinvented. How can this be?

The main attraction is the proximity of the planned development. In fact, drive from a boardroom in the north end of the Greater Toronto Area to the boardwalk of Friday Harbour in less than an hour. Considerably less time than the traditional weekend drive to cottage country!

Distance is one of the more appealing aspects of this full-featured community. The intent is to build and develop a four season community to attract residents, sports enthusiasts, boaters and visitors of all types. Imagine a sprawling 600-acre facility including a championship 18-hole golf course, a fully-functional marina and a 200-acre nature preserve – all on your doorstep.

Mary Bateman is a professional real estate agent that specializes in residential opportunities for individuals and, of course families. “This development will be an affordable oasis for anyone who wishes all the amenities of an immediate lifestyle at their fingertips,” she states. “Ownership automatically provides membership at the Lake Club overlooking the sprawling marina complex. There will be a family-friendly club with a fully equipped fitness facility, daycare centre, spa, restaurant – everything for pleasure and business, a place to catch up with new friends at the end of a hectic day.”

This ambitious undertaking is already under construction by Geranium Corporation, an experienced fully integrated land development and building company located in Ontario. Residences of every description and budget will be available; from studio apartments, to three bedrooms, seventeen hundred square feet of living space; and, to exclusive 5-bedroom townhomes with up to forty-two hundred square feet on the waterfront with their own private dock.
