Situated in the charming town of Orillia, along the shores of Lake Simcoe, Sophie’s Landing Lakeside Club offers residents an idyllic setting within a gated community. The first phase of the waterfront development by Signature Carleton Inc. has already sold out, but a selection of lots are still available in phase two. Its location 20 minutes north of Barrie and just over an hour from Toronto has attracted empty-nesters, snowbirds and retirees looking for resort-style living while still being close to urban amenities.

“We located our development in Orillia because of its proximity to Toronto, and because Orillia has excellent four season amenities including a 65 acre park just outside our gates, skiing, golfing, heritage downtown, Casino Rama, and a different festival every weekend,” said Eric Kerzner, President of Signature Carleton. “A good many have winter homes and this becomes their summer place; others have chosen to retire here and yet others work in Toronto during the week and see Sophie’s Landing as a family getaway for both summer and winter.”


Within the community, residents have access to beautifully landscaped grounds, a sparkling swimming pool, clubhouse, espresso bar, fireside lounge and a fitness centre and spa. A gazebo overlooking the marina provides a perfect spot to enjoy the breeze off the lake, while the 1,500 feet of shoreline and woodland trails offer scenic cottage country views. Other amenities include a private marina with night lighting, billiards room, games room and private theatre.


Priced from $439,900, the homes at Sophie’s landing feature French Country-inspired architecture, soaring lofts, full basements and attached garages. Each home comes custom-built with no two homes alike. From adding a finished basements to adding two feet to a living room, Signature Carleton Inc. allows homebuyers to fully customize their homes to suit their needs.

“Very early on in the project, we decided it was vital to make customization both easy and affordable,” explained Kerzner. “In other projects, builders try to force their version of what buyers want on them. At Sophie’s Landing we have geared everything to make it easy for buyers to customize and create their perfect dream home.”
