In a small town 90 minutes north of Toronto, Kaitlin Corp. is developing a waterfront community for buyers who want four-season recreation on land and lake.

Set in Midland, off Bayport Boulevard, the low-rise community will offer freehold and condominium townhouses and bungalows on 50- and 60-foot lots, most of which will back onto a new portion of one of the world's largest trail system, as well as the clear waters of the Georgian Bay.

"There isn't a lot of waterfront like that any more, especially in new construction," sales representative Debbie McDonald says. "What's important for this area is it's not just for retired people, we've got people that have purchased from all age groups, so that's what makes it very unique."

For instance, novice and veteran swimmers and sailors will recognize the benefits of having the rights to build a private dock 200-feet out from the backyard of bungalows on 60-foot lots.

"We have the deep harbour, so you're able to bring your boat right to your dock, which is … a huge amenity for us because the Georgian Bay is our No. 1 amenity, along with the Trans Canada Trail," says Cindy White Ward, a local sales consultant who has seen cruise ships in the bay from inside these homes.

"It's a million-dollar view."

Next door, the Bay Port Yachting Centre provides another means to access the fresh water body, which is a popular getaway to the 30,000 Islands and Trent-Severn Waterway, as well as a skating and ice fishing destination in the winter.

New on site parks and ponds will complement the Tom McCullough Park, Gawley Park and beach just steps to the east, while additional green space, marina, restaurants and cafés will be a 20-minute stroll away.

"It's not like living in town because you're far enough away in a secluded, quiet area," Ms. White Ward says.

"We always have something special going on in our downtown, besides our quaint little stores, so our amenities in Midland are bar none. I call it a hidden treasure because not everyone knows what we actually have."

Local attractions include the North Simcoe Sports and Recreation Centre, Midland Curling Club and Midland Cultural Centre, a large collection of murals and an annual butter tart festival. Plus, a hospital, airport and Georgian College campus provide essential services.

Buyers have moved into more than two dozen detached houses and four model homes are ready for immediate occupancy within the architecturally controlled community. New detached, two- to four-bedroom plans can be added as soon as next spring.

Streetscapes will showcase a mix of Cape Cod, Craftsman and Muskoka-style details, such as gables, dormers, cupolas and large windows, angled, arched and rounded.

Wide porches, single and double garages will provide entry inside where plans will offer main-floor master suites, open eat-in kitchens and living areas open to above in some cases, plus optional loft levels and finished basements.

For a limited time, buyers will receive $35,000 worth of upgrades, such as oak stairs, granite kitchen counters and hardwood floors in principal rooms. Waterfront homes will be upgraded to $85,000.

Estimated monthly fees will be $75 for two-storey, condominium townhouses and $20 for freehold bungalow townhouses.
