There are new luxury townhomes coming to Barrie by the end of this year! East Village Urban Towns by Camdar Homes will be located near Yonge and Big Bay Point, minutes from the waterfront, surrounded by convenient amenities.
Before jumping into how amazing the neighbourhood is, we need to point out how East Village Urban Towns is a great opportunity for all types of buyers; including first-timers, empty nesters, and move-up buyers.
The average price of a new townhome in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is around $1 million, according to the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD). That’s clearly out of reach for first-time buyers and move-up buyers, and empty nesters may be able to afford it, but it would be unwise since they are likely saving for retirement.
This is why Barrie and other areas of Simcoe County have seen a surge in new home sales this year. Buyers are looking to Barrie for a wider selection of high quality and relatively more affordable housing options.
When East Village Urban Towns launches at the end of 2017, prices will start in the upper $300,000s. We wouldn’t be surprised to see some condo owners in downtown Toronto deciding to make the move up to Barrie to start a family.
Even if you work downtown Toronto, getting there by transit is a breeze thanks to the nearby Barrie South GO Station. It’s under five minutes away by car and you can actually walk there along Yonge and it will only take about 20 minutes.
Living in South Barrie
East Village Urban Towns is within walking distance to numerous neighbourhood amenities, including restaurants, banks, schools, and shopping. There is a Shoppers Drug Mart within a stone’s throw, and an LCBO just down the street.
Driving to the waterfront only takes a few minutes, and if you prefer to bike, you can get there in under 10 minutes. Along the shore of Lake Simcoe, there are many waterfront destinations, such as Wilkin’s Beach, Tollendale Beach, Pioneer Park, and Brentwood Marine.
In addition to having beaches and waterfront parks nearby, as well as many walkable amenities, East Village Urban Towns is nestled up against an expansive green space called Lovers Creek Ravine, which of course has Lovers Creek winding through it.
