Featured Neighbourhood: Cranberry Village in Collingwood, Ontario
Cranberry Village is the oldest and largest condominium development in Collingwood, Ontario. It is located on the west side of town near the waters of Georgian Bay with Blue Mountain serving as a backdrop in the west. It is approximately 2 kms west of the town centre via Highway 26
It’s tricky to summarize anything about Cranberry Village in a sentence of two since it is so large with a variety of different locations within itself, a variety of ages and styles of units and different offerings and prices for each. In a very general sense, Cranberry has the oldest units and so, many have had to go through significant upgrades in recent years and energy efficiency has not always been what it could be. On the flip side, Cranberry condos offer more space, foot by foot and dollar by dollar than almost any other development in the area. I find some areas preferable over others but again, it always comes down to the needs of a buyer.
