As Orillia’s most prestigious lakeside community, Sophie’s Landing Lakeside Club has been popular with empty-nesters, snowbirds and retirees for its resort lifestyle, exquisite architecture and excellent amenities. Now, there’s one more reason to choose the exclusive gated community as your new home — $25,000 in free upgrades!

For a limited time, developer Signature Carleton Inc. is offering a $25,000 upgrade package with the purchase of any unit. That includes hardwood flooring in the great room and dining room, nine foot ceilings on the main floor and lofts, ceramic tile and upgraded trim in main hallways, rounded drywall corners and granite countertops on kitchen islands.


Priced from $439,900, the 84 homes at Sophie’s boast French Country-inspired architecture with steep rooflines, covered porches, and a mix of stone, Cape Cod siding or stucco facades. Each home is also custom-built to meet home buyers’ every need from adding a finished basement to adding two feet to a living room.

“We wanted the homes to be all different, for the place to be more like a French Village than a subdivision,” said Eric Kerzner, President of Signature Carleton. “These high quality, stylish and affordable homes are carefully set into a friendly, intimate neighborhood — creating a highly desirable lifestyle for active adults with a wide variety of recreational opportunities.”

Located 20 minutes north of Barrie and just over an hour from Toronto, Sophie’s Landing Lakeside Club is ideally situated where Lake Couchiching meets Lake Simcoe in the Trent-Severn waterway system.


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.

Just outside the gates, residents have easy access to nearby attractions like Casino Rama, Horseshoe Valley Ski Resort, Hawk Ridge Golf & Country Club and heritage downtown Orillia. And since the area has many summer and winter activities from tennis and cycling to cross country skiing and curling, it’s easy to stay active all year round.

“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 Kerzner.

With the project now 95 per cent sold, now is your chance to be a part of this exclusive gated community. Be sure to register online or call the sales office at 647 878 1939.
