Just Listed: A Very Special Home in Downtown Collingwood

In the real estate business, we’re sometimes quick to use superlatives such as “Special”, “Amazing”, “Unique” or “Beautiful” but in this case, every word is true.  I’ve just listed a most amazing, special, unique and beautiful home for sale on Pine Street in Collingwood’s historic downtown.

Sitting on an unusually large property of about 1/3rd of an acre, the land was first deeded in the 1850’s to the Sheriff of Simcoe County.  Sometime around the turn of the century, one of Collingwood’s first settlers and a successful merchant and local councilman, Alexander Buist (there is a street named after him in Nottawa), built this classic, American four-square home.   In the years that followed, it was owned by notables in the area including Kaufman Furniture.

Several years ago, award winning builders from Whistler decided to make Collingwood their home at which time they purchased this property for their family home.  Since then, they have lovingly restored and renovated pretty well every inch of this home to a standard I have not often seen.  Today, the house truly invites you in and quickly makes you wish you could stay for a lifetime.  It has been listed for sale and is very appropriately priced at $829,000.00.

Have a look at the website and be sure to read the great story about “The Letter”  while you’re there.  We’ve also done a true video walk through which you can view below.  If you or someone you know has been looking for a special, amazing, unique and beautiful, luxury home in Collingwood, then please let them know about this opportunity.
