Summit Shores Townhouses in Blue Mountain

Posted by Sherry Rioux on March 17, 2015

For a couple of years now, I’ve been driving by these townhouses on the north side of Highway 26, directly opposite Georgian Peaks and at the new set of lights. For some reason, they never really caught my attention as there was no progress on the development but all that has now changed.

The project is a joint effort between Losani Homes, who have been building homes in southern Ontario since 1976 and, with Mountainview Homes who have building since 1979 in the Niagara Region. I gather the principals of one or both ski at the Peaks so that is the likely spark behind the project.

The model homes are now open and it was nice to view them last week during an agent open house. The floor plans were intelligent designs and the finishing was nicely done as you’d expect in the showcase units. The units had far more curb appeal from the entry side and wow – the mountain views from the units are simply spectacular!

There are 13 units either built or under construction in this first phase and all feature an oversized single garage, two storey unit and a full basement. Sizes range from 1630 sq ft (not including the basement) to 2065 sq ft for the largest model. Base prices range from $417,900 to $474,900 with basement finishing and upgrades easily bringing the price in over $500,000. Given what the older condos sell for on the grounds at the ski club across the road, this doesn’t seem out of line.

Here is the most significant detail. These townhouses are NOT condos. They are FREEHOLD ownership with no monthly fees. This is likely to excite a number of people however, there are also no architectural controls or ground rules for co-operative living in close proximity which can lead to disputes in future. Hopefully any owners will be reasonable folks with the likely connection that most will be skiers at Georgian Peaks.

The greater site has future phases that include both additional townhomes (sadly no bungalows are in the works) and, future single family residential with water views over shoreline greenspace. The builder is fully co-operating with the real estate community so if you would like further information, please contact me and we’ll get you everything you need.

    Hi Lana
    They are no longer listed with any agent up here and the phone number is not in service that I had. I know they had a challenge in selling the first phase so it may be that they’ve put the project on hold. I’m told that several units were purchased by investors doing short term rentals however, all of this is heresay and I’m sorry I can’t give you any more accurate or current info as it is not available. Thanks for checking in on the blog.

    Hi Marg,

    Do you have any information related to winter seasonal rentals related
    to summer shores. We are members at the peaks and this location would be
    great for us for the 2018-19 season

    Hi Kevin
    I’m not aware of any available however, I don’t specialize in rentals. I would suggest you check the Peaks newsletter from time to time although it may be a bit early yet for next season. Good luck in your search.

    Hi Marg.
    I am looking for something with a waterview or waterfront. Do you know of any developments coming that will have a waterfront in the Collingwood area.
    Thank you.

    That is something that everyone wants! There have been a few resales units in the last year but very limited and generally at top dollar. In regard to new developments, I am not aware of any in the immediate area. The waterfront is almost full developed so new developments are more inland now. You may wish to consider resale units.
