Lakefront Oasis in Orillia

Invermara Residence_header

A Rare Opportunity with a Breathtaking Shoreline

Surrounded by the nature and beauty of Lake Simcoe in Orillia, the Invermara Residence is an immaculate property with over eight decades of history.

Invermara Residence was originally acquired in 1941 as a summer retreat. The non-profit owners maintained this peaceful and expansive property through the decades. A full transformation in the 1970s has created a beautiful blend of mid-century modern and natural interior elements that reflect the breathtaking location and grounds. The property comprises four buildings of guest accommodations, one assembly hall, and two storage facilities. Not to mention, the pool is an appealing escape during transitional seasons when the lake is a little too brisk for a swim.

The Colliers Advantage

The stewards of the Invermara Residence want to maintain its essence and social purpose. The property is more than just its seven structures, 8.35 acres, and 1,334 feet of waterfront at 200 Invermara Court in Orillia. It is a retreat rich in history and centered in community values.

Colliers experts Peter Davies, Senior Vice President, Matthew Soper, Associate Vice President, and Jeremiah Shamess, Senior Vice President are the ideal team to be entrusted with this sale. With experience of representing similar properties in the area along with deep knowledge of investment sales, all complemented with a history of working with non-profit clients, these three advisors are looking for a buyer who can demonstrate a bold vision to ensure the property maintains its legacy and social purpose.

Nature at an Accessible Location

The Invermara Residence sits on a beautiful peninsula that provides a spectacular view of Lake Simcoe’s unique shoreline. The buildings are guarded by mature trees, creating a private oasis for guests. However, you do not have to sacrifice accessibility to gain this privacy. The property is a mere five minutes from Downtown Orillia, with many convenient amenities such as grocery chains, retail stores, and a variety of restaurants. The property itself is municipally serviced with fully functional facilities in all current structures and the ability to expand with additional dwellings.

The location is also only 30 minutes from downtown Barrie and 1.5 hours north of Toronto, making this a truly accessible retreat.

Lake Simcoe is approximately 722 square kilometers in length and measures about 5 kilometers at its widest point. This lake is a crucial segment of the distinguished Trent-Severn Waterway, a 368-kilometer canal route and national historic site that connects Lake Ontario in Trenton to Georgian Bay, Lake Huron, in Port Severn.

An Opportunity for Future Legacies

This rare property balances natural beauty, privacy, peace, and tranquility with easy access. Modern amenities are in place to support its future potential. The Invermara Residence is just the place for the right buyer to write a new chapter in history, one filled with social good, bold vision, and true purpose. In a modern market where many focus on cost, the stewards of this property focus on the value Invermara can contribute to the community in its next chapter.
