Tanglewoods Luxurious Bungalows in Phase IV ~Now OPEN
November 18, 2008 (Tanglewood)

~New 6,000+ sq. ft. Design and Sales Centre Offers Buyers Extensive Selection of Unique Finishing and Upgrade Options~

Sierra Building Group has gone distinctively up market with the introduction of their new bungalow with loft designs in Phase IV of their Tanglewood at Cranberry Trail development. Most of these homes back directly onto Cranberry Resort’s prestigious Atoka golf course, Canada’s first Audubon Society certified golf course – with the opportunity for owners to purchase a membership at preferred rates. In addition to direct access to this course, the community is linked to a host of nearby amenities ranging from boating to horseback riding, to Collingwood’s quaint downtown area with its unique shops and restaurants, and most of these amenities are linked by Collingwood’s extensive network of trails. And the homes are less than a 10 minute drive both to Blue Mountain and the area’s private ski clubs, making Tanglewood a true four-season destination. There are four new bungalow with loft designs to choose from on spacious 40’ lots, as well as six special units on uniquely shaped lots. Prices on the 40’ lots range from $459,900 to $469,900 for these three and four-bedroom new bungalow models, which range in size from 2,056 to 2,261 sq. ft.

Consistent with the other homes at Tanglewood, the exteriors of these homes are architecturally controlled and colour coordinated to complement the surrounding natural environment. They feature Post and Beam accents and an extensive use of such natural materials as wood, stone and glass. Other exterior highlights include covered front porches; attached double car garages with premium quality raised cladwood sectional roll up doors; high grade architectural asphalt shingles with 25 year manufacturers’ warranty; high quality maintenance-free vinyl casement windows with clear thermal pane low E glazing; spectacular walkways leading to front entrances made of decorative “natural look” materials such as rusticated unit pavers and timber stairs; paved asphalt driveways; and dramatic landscaping throughout the community.

Interior features of these stunning homes include open concept designs that lend themselves to entertaining; foyers with cathedral ceilings or open to above areas; living rooms/great rooms with soaring cathedral ceilings, spectacular floor to ceiling windows that dramatically showcase the scenic outdoors, and direct vent gas fireplaces with stain grade wood mantle; spacious gourmet kitchens with granite countertops, deluxe cabinetry and raised breakfast bars; main floor master bedrooms with ensuites with upgraded vanities with double sinks, oval tubs and separate energy efficient showers and toilets; stairs with natural finish oak veneer stringers and solid oak handrails and pickets where applicable; quality imported 13” x 13” or 12” x 12” ceramic tile flooring in foyer, kitchen, bathrooms, breakfast area and laundry closet; luxurious 40 oz. broadloom or ribbed sisal in living/dining room, bedrooms, passages and landings; forced air high efficiency gas furnaces; and full basements, which may be finished for an additional fee. Additionally, some of these homes have walkout basements with full size windows and sliding patio doors that back directly onto the golf course /green area. Occupancy for these homes is scheduled for March, 2010.

These homes have been introduced in response to the growing demand from buyers that aspire to what we would describe as affordable luxury. This includes families looking for an upscale weekend home, and also empty nesters looking for a great place to retire,” observes Sierra president Morris Kansun.

“We’ve known for some time that Collingwood, with its great amenities will continue to be extremely popular with the boomer set for many years to come, and these people really are discerning buyers. They’re focused on finding a home in a great location, that is spacious and well suited for entertaining, and a home where they can add a lot of personal touches in terms of finishing details and extras.” Buyers can now find an extensive selection of standard interior finishes and upgrades at Sierra’s new 6,000+ sq. ft. design and sales centre. An initial consultation with an in-house interior décor consultant is included in the purchase of every home. This comprehensive consultation includes colour and finishing selections; kitchen designs and upgrades; trim choices for the entire interior; plumbing designs and upgrades; and lighting. “The unique thing about our new design centre is that many of the materials and finishes aren’t just on display, they’re incorporated into the construction of the centre, so buyers can see how the materials look in a real life situation,” observes Kansun. “Buyers can choose from over 10,000 finishing and upgrade selections. Some examples of our diverse finishing options include 7” rustic, hand-distressed red pine flooring, Merbou (exotic African hardwood), and bamboo flooring; granite and limestone countertops; glass mosaic and tumbled marble backsplashes in kitchens; bamboo cabinets; custom built solid wood entrance doors; and Raywal kitchens. Other upgrades include custom designed lighting; custom designed sound systems; and security systems.”

Aside from offering excellent value compared to other golf course communities or waterfront homes in the area, buyers continue to be drawn to Tanglewood because of the community’s 15,000 sq. ft. Country Club that will include everything from an indoor/outdoor pool with outdoor hot tub, luxury health spa, restaurant, fitness room, multifunction room, kitchen, business centre, indoor golf with a high-end golf simulator, outdoor tennis court, and several lounge and deck areas. And in order for owners to maximize the time they can spend pursuing various leisure activities, exterior maintenance, snow removal and grass cutting are covered by a monthly maintenance fee. In keeping with Sierra’s desire to provide luxury homes that are affordable, the developer will also continue to offer chalet homes starting as low as $199,900. “Homes at this price point are proving to be particularly popular with families that are looking for a lower point of entry for a weekend home in a great development… where at some point down the road, they have the option of either staying put or trading up to a larger home within the development. They also appeal to people who are retired or semi-retired that want to keep their place in the city or a place down south,” observes Kansun.

Prospective buyers are encouraged to visit the new Tanglewood sales office on Hwy. 26, on the north end of Collingwood, and, in order to get a sense of the quality of workmanship these homes have, to visit the model home for Sierra Building Group’s other development in the area – Woodlands by Sierra.

Sales office hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
