One of the major draws for those considering a move north from the GTA is to find that ideal waterfront property and preliminary research points to Oro-Medonte on the west shore of Lake Simcoe. While the dream of waterfront may not be affordable, this is still one of the most sought after destinations in Simcoe County to move to.
Being less than an hour to the GTA, Oro-Medonte is well within the “commuter belt” for those who choose the lifestyle Oro-Medonte can offer the family. Ideally located with easy access to everywhere via Highways 11, 12 and 400 makes this a natural destination for those who can work-from-home but still need access to the Toronto airport.
This is the perfect place to get out and get active! From first-class downhill and Nordic skiing, premiere golf courses for all levels of ability, vast cross-country cycling and hiking trail networks, hundreds of kilometers of smoothly paved roads ideal for cycling, and year-round fishing opportunities.
Regardless of age and stage, Oro-Medonte offers a rich array of cultural experiences in a spectacular rural setting whether visiting the boutique shops in the village of Craighurst, McCutcheon’s award-winning maple syrup farm, exploring the Township’s many historical sites, or discovering the flourishing local arts scene. While agriculture is a primary industry in the township, a broad array of small local manufacturers and service providers are scattered throughout the area.
The township is home to a range of executive home communities including Eight Mile Point, Simcoe Estates near Craighurst, Arbourwood in Shanty Bay, Edgar, Horseshoe Valley, Braestone (Horseshoe Valley Road & Line 9) and Moonstone. Other communities of newer homes include Warminster, Sugar Bush, Craighurst, Harbourwood (Oro Station) and Hawkestone, to name a few.
When considering a move to Oro-Medonte, it’s also important to know that you are just minutes from 2 major state of the art medical care facilities serving Central Ontario - Orillia Soldiers Memorial Hospital and Barrie's Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre. With an array of specialists, surgeons and excellent emergency centres, you are in good hands.
And finally, for all those who love to shop, they will be relieved to know that both Barrie and Orillia offer all the major retailers including a Costco and Home Depot in both cities. Restaurants, theatres, sports teams and fitness clubs are also easily accessible in minutes. And if boating or fishing is important, Lake Simcoe offers a number of marinas that will allow you to be on the water quickly to make the most of the time available.
Whether seeking a town, country or waterside environment, Oro-Medonte has something for everyone. Come, explore and check out all it has to offer…
