Classic country estate living

Inspired by the rolling hills and lush countryside of the Oro-Medonte region of Horseshoe Valley, Braestone was designed as a reimagining of the classic Country Estate. More than 560 acres of tranquil countryside. Incredible estate lots averaging one acre for every family. Panoramic views of nature. Combined with the unique character of the modern farmhouse architecture and unparalleled amenities, life at Braestone sounds too good to be true. Yet from planning to production and beyond, it continues to live up to every promise. The final 16 lots are being released soon, the grand finale of this incredible community.
