at Christie Beach
Near Lora Bay & Thornbury
A `must see` development opportunity for a 44 acres parcel just down the street from the prestigous Golf Club at Lora Bay, steps to Christie Beach (known as the nicest sand beach in the area) & close to the Georgian Trail (biking trail runs for 32kms along Georgian Bay).
The majority of this property is designated in the Official Plan (Lora Bay Amendment) for 47 housing units as SR - Shoreline Residential (Remainder is hazard along the south side of the property and along the stream can be used for parkland and trails). Permitted uses for SR include Single detached residential dwellings; Multiple residential dwellings; Recreational uses and facilities; Parks and open space. Discussions are also possible with the town about the potential of changing to higher density housing options.
It is mainly level land at a higher elevation than the properties on Sunset Blvd which should allow for Georgian Bay views on many or all of the lots or from 2nd storeys.
A separate 21 acre parcel is available (see link at left) that is very close to the current location of municipal services. By combining both parcels, the services could be brought through the 21 acre parcel to this 44 acre parcel, or alternatively along Sunset Blvd from the current location of the services, in order to service just this 44 acre parcel. The town has sized the pipes for the current services to allow for the future continuation of services to the end of Sunset Blvd (at Christie Beach Rd).
There are several public waterfront access points available (see #7 below) including Christie Beach Park.
Close to the upscale shops & restaurants in the quaint Village of Thornbury, a short drive to skiing at Blue Mountain and the private ski clubs and near the Cedar Run Horse Park, home to the Blue Mountains Hunter Jumper Horse Show and a Riding School.
