It’s been more than two years since a freehold development has launched in Barrie. Pratt Homes is filling a void in the market with Bear Creek Ridge, a brand new family neighbourhood featuring freehold townhomes, detached homes and condominiums. Located at the corner of Salem and Essa Road in southwest Barrie, the community will offer original floorplans and a streetscape design that mixes traditional and modern exteriors.

“We have condominiums, freehold townhomes and freehold detached homes ranging from 606 square feet right up to 3,000 square feet,” said Pratt Homes Sales Director Cynthia Grassing. “We’re offering new homes to accommodate families of every size.”

The Freehold Metro Towns are three-storeys and range from two to three bedrooms plus den. These residences are fully above ground and boast private balconies and garages. The Freehold Euro Towns are open-concept, three-storey homes. Available in two or three bedroom options with dens, these above-grade homes come with large balconies and European-style carports.

Condominiums at Bear Creek Ridge offer a maintenance-free lifestyle. The thoughtfully-designed floorplans range from studios to three bedrooms, and suites are outfitted with balconies you can barbecue on. Plus, secure underground parking means you’ll never have to dig out your car after a snowstorm.

Those in the market for a detached single-family home will be pleased with the wide selection of floorplans, which offer 1,900 to 3,000 square feet of living space. Traditional, modern and hybrid elevations will ensure a diverse streetscape that’s anything but cookie-cutter.

Bear Creek Ridge is situated in Barrie’s burgeoning southwest corner. It’s only 45 minutes outside the GTA, and a ten minute drive from Barrie’s downtown core. Dine at independent restaurants, shop local retailers or go for a stroll along Barrie’s scenic waterfront (home to four swimmable beaches). The nearby Barrie South GO station is implementing all day service within the next five years, making it easier than ever to commute into Toronto.
