Innisfil – for every taste and lifestyle!
Me and my family have moved to Innisfil in 2016 to a nice detached 3600 sq ft home of which we could not even dream living in the GTA. Before moving here, we would come to Innisfil Beach Park regularly and I have watched the town develop and expand. When the time came to look for a new home, I knew already that secretly, in my heart, I have already felt in love with Innisfil and there is no other place like it for me, where I would want my kids to grow and spend quality outside time, by the lake!
Let me tell you about our beautiful town!
Innisfil – Irish Inis Fáil is an ancient mythological name for Ireland. Innisfil was once home to Huron Indians, and was first surveyed in 1820. It has historically been a rural area with virgin forests, but over 170 years grew into a dynamic, fast developing residential community. Innisfil is only 80km from Toronto and located on the western shore of Lake Simcoe in Simcoe County.
Innisfil is a place for everyone who enjoys spending time outdoors all year round. For those who value their quality of life, breathing fresh unpolluted air, living in a natures reserve and being a part of non-overcrowded community.
Innisfil’s developers made sure that there are plenty of housing options for Innisfillians. Whether you prefer a traditional family home with a fair size lot, modern open space townhouse, bungalow or a year round waterfront cottage, Innisfil has it all.
Commercial counterpart is growing fast as well as new plazas and business towers are being build, offering plenty of space and opportunities for new or established businesses.
If you think of Innisfil as a traditional countryside, you will be surprised how modern and vibrant it is becoming!
There are plenty of new developments underway; some of them are at their final stages. Just to name a few:
Friday Harbour - features a new concept for cottagers who do not wish to waste their long weekend time in maddening traffic and on other maintenance tasks at arrival, common to a regular cottage owner.
Radiance Townhomes (https://www.radianceinnisfil.ca/) will offers contemporary, spacious, energy efficient townhomes with rooftop terraces and beautifully landscaped common areas.
Waves of Alcona – Condominium with retail and office spaces coming soon to the heart of Alcona.
