Barrie continues to be a hot spot for home buyers from the GTA looking to escape the constant rush and mounting costs of the big city, but not its conveniences or amenities. Barrie has grown by leaps and bounds over the last several years in terms of shopping, services, fine dining and nightlife. For those who still want to get to Toronto for work or pleasure, regular weekly GoTrain service runs from Barrie’s Allandale and South Barrie stations.
Pratt’s Manhattan condo and townhome community has likewise grown with its broad range of options for singles, young couples, new families or those looking to scale back in their retirement years. In Phase II, which will be officially released at 40 Ferndale Drive South in Barrie on Saturday, November 3rd (though pre-sales have already been brisk), both townhomes and eightplex condos have been introduced. Fully decorated models are readily available for viewing and Pratt Homes sales staff can answer any question related to buying a new home, downpayments, financing or anything in between as they’ve likely heard them before.
Manhattan has truly evolved as a lifestyle getaway community over the last year with its Central Park complete with a walking trails, a covered gazebo and quick access to Barrie’s Eco-Park; a place to relax and unwind after a long workday or for the weekend.
