The move to cottage country in Ontario is not only fuelled by downsizing baby boomers looking for a new home in a relaxed setting near sophisticated amenities. With house costs soaring in the GTA, now younger buyers who work from home or who just want to own a home somewhere wonderful while they rent and work in the city are discovering something new in the storied village of Bobcaygeon.
What’s new is Highland Green and it’s right in the heart of Bobcaygeon. Highland Green is an intimate private community of freehold bungalows, bungalow-lofts and two-story homes by acclaimed builder Elm Developments.
Nestled beside picturesque Kawartha Settlers’ Village, Highland Green is an enclave of architecturally-stunning homes on estate- sized lots. With highlights like gables and ocular windows, board and batten, shakes, decorative brackets, and fieldstone, Highland Green homes reflect an impressive level of heritage detail.
Elm has designed interiors that are airy, open and enticing. Natural light filters through open kitchen and breakfast areas into great rooms. Highlights like soaring two-storey great room ceilings in bungalow loft designs are pure luxury. Master retreats, both main-floor and upper-floor models, come with highlights like his-and-her walk-in closets and ensuites feature glass showers, double sinks and oval soaker tubs.
Living at Highland Green means you can amble out your door through the village to your favorite local coffeeshop or farm-to-table restaurant. Boating is a theme, as Bobcaygeon is on a popular lock, one of several along the Trent Severn Waterway. Boaters come from as far away as the Bahamas and Florida to moor at the village where the shopping and cuisine is first rate.
The area is known for water sports, fishing and horseback riding along orchard-lined trails in the countryside. Music, theatre, art and culinary festivals flourish. And the good news is that Highland Green is just an hour from
the eastern GTA. With the 407 connecting to area highways in 2020, now’s the time to stake your claim!
