When designing the residences of Braestone, the goal was to create a distinctive and timeless architectural style, one that combined the elements of early Oro-Medonte farmhouses, barns, and sheds but in a more modern and eco-friendly interpretation.
The result is a series of inspiring homes that are sophisticated in appearance, yet simple in detail. Timeless and appropriate to its surroundings, Braestone’s architectural style will also be immediately recognizable for its truly differentiating aspects.
At Braestone we are creating a community that is a near perfect blend of nature and neighbourliness, proximity, and privacy. A community that offers a casual yet refined style of living. A community that is down home, yet up-country. A community that is truly ‘rare earth’.
We looked to the landscape for inspiration and created our very own “Remarkables” for Braestone – life-enriching amenities that will foster a richer, deeper connection with the land and a more substantive lifestyle for residents of all ages. Born of the land, Braestone’s Remarkables are simple and timeless amenities that have grown naturally out of the community’s own unique and magnificent landscape. Horseback riding, Nordic skiing, maple sugar tapping and orchard and berry picking are just some of the many remarkable experiences homeowners will enjoy living here.
Living at Braestone is utter quiet at night and a pitch-dark sky ablaze with stars. It’s the sound of frogs coming from one of the farm’s ponds and the birdcall of the house wrens visiting your backyard feeder. It’s long walks or bicycle rides along the trails maintained as part of Braestone’s long-term forest management policies. Country life is a long run along the rural roads and side-roads that crisscross Oro-Medonte.
