“Kettle Point”

Beaches, beaches .. beaches. Driving northeast of Sarnia up along the Lake Huron shoreline. It offers a number of places where one can stop to enjoy the beaches. Here are pictures of one place where you can stop, just north of “Kettle Point’. It’s the little things like this that make the city of Sarnia a great place to call home.

“The Corunna Riverside”.

 

Here is another hidden treasure. River views, boating, ship watching. Living on water is such a wonderful experience. See our “South of Sarnia Section” #1, 166 Beckwith Street for more details. Let the pictures do the talking.

Condos “Up The Lake”,”Lake Huron” That Is.

The Sarnia area is not cottage country however it is blessed to be near “Grand Bend” which is up the lake about 70 km north-east on the eastern side of Lake Huron.”Grand Bend”is vacation country for many Americans and cottage or second home country for people from mid southwestern Ontario like such areas as London,Stratford and Kitchener.”Grand Bend” has miles and miles of clean sandy beaches.
Many condo owners of Sarnia who enjoy dockside privileges also get to enjoy the shorelines of Lake Huron as one of their summer playgrounds.”The Pinery Provincial Park” south of “Grand Bend” is over 6,300 acres in size and it has 10 km of sandy beaches which is boater friendly. Then also there is Port Franks which can offer safety for boaters in the event of unexpected late afternoon summer storms.
Are there condos in “Grand Bend”? Yes, and there are condos in “Bayfield” further to the north. Watch for the launch in the near future of our new “Grand Bend/Bayfield” Your Condo World website!

A sign near the “Seaway Centre”.

Living “next to water”  creates challenges and unique opportunities. This mural tells a story about part of Sarnia’s  downtown history. The tunnel was built without the technology we have today!

“Winter Activities in Sarnia”

Sarnia can get cold in the winter however the winter seasons of 2015 and 2016 in this region seemed to have dodged the bullet. London and further inland gets more snow.Here are pictures of fishermen out in early January 2015 enjoying the river. While boating is an activity not recommended at this time of year the fish are always biting. Read here about The”Griffon” of 1679. 1679 is a year and not a model number. Others have fished here before us. Come pay us a visit and enjoy the fishing or just watch those who are somewhat more adventurous try their luck at it. If you play your cards right there is always some excitement happening here.

“The Beaches”

Visit #20 of our “Sarnia Central” subsection link to a project called ”The Beaches”. These pictures shot this month help us to take yet another look at it. If you press your zoom button on the picture just below you might be able to see the sign out in front of a restaurant next to the bus stop that says “Skeeter Barlow’s Grill and Bar” and a second sign just below it with the wording that says “Slow Roasted Prime Rib on Friday and Saturday Nights”.
This location, Bright St./Thelma St./Lakeshore Rd. is yet another “next to the beach” condo like location. Our point is once again  that “Sarnia” and “The Lake Huron Shoreline Region” to the immediate north/east is “a four season” retirement destination for people from all over Ontario. What a great place to enjoy both both summer and winter walking!

Living Next To Water in “Sarnia / Port Huron”

Here we are again with more February pictures. This time it’s a short little blog about one aspect of the rental marketplace in Sarnia/Port Huron. Imagine renting in a high rise apartment building where you can step outside the door and hit the beach and go for a swim. Clear, blue Lake Huron waters. This picture, just taken shows what we are talking about. Apartment buildings built on clean beaches and clean bodies of water for refreshing summer swimming. Downtown Barrie has them. So to does the city of Sarnia! Here is a picture of the third of the three towers we are talking about. The builder “Drewlo” out of London Ontario scored a home run when they acquired this site and put up these three rental towers. Their addresses are 1277, 1285 and 1295 Sandy Lane and they are called “Marina Park One, Two and Three”. The newest one even has an indoor pool. Unobstructed views of the St. Clair River , The Bluewater Bridge, The Sarnia Yacht Club, and a beach on the sandy shores of Lake Huron. Are you best to rent first for a year or two until you have fully researched where you want to end up? If so, this type of living and this location might serve well your needs.. Google “Drewlo in Sarnia” for additional details.

The Condos at “1730 Murphy Road”.

Are you out in western Canada in some place like Medicine Hat or Fort McMurray working and missing Ontario? Are you still thinking about the good times you once  had golfing in Brights Grove? Guess what? The good times are still here. The city of Sarnia welcomes you! Enjoy the area’s fishing, the world of Great Lake boating, and the weekend summer outings up to the beaches of Port Franks, Grand Bend and Bayfield.
The “1730 Murphy Road” condo cluster is close to new shopping experiences, golfing, area parks and walking paths. More importantly, it’s only one block to the beach, a beach with white sands and an unexpected sign that says ”planting area”. (These photos were shot on Feb 3th 2016). On that day people who were out on the beach enjoying the unusually warm southwest breezes. Further to the east, people were also out walking and enjoying the warm day in the more roughed “Highland Glen Conservation Area”.  Wouldn’t living here be wonderful? Life in the Sarnia Ontario region is really all about being near the water!

A “Follow Up” to our “Venetian Blvd.” Blog of Jan.24th 2016

Sarnia is all about summer living and the”1550 Venetian Blvd.”condo complex is very much different in design than the other three Venetian condo complexes next to it. The building is somewhat taller and less sprawling in design. It is also flanked by canals on both sides which is an attractive feature.This complex is only now about seven years old, a nice age range compared to the other complexes next to it which are now more typically about in the eighteen year old age range.(The first two pictures illustrated here are of the neighbouring complex and the lower picture is of the 1550 Venetian Blvd. building).
In the last five years ten units have changed ownership in this”1550″ building using the services of the “MLS” system with over half of the listings first coming available in either the months of May or July. (It’s always nice to present a property for sale here during the early or mid summer boating season). These units may be offered with boat slip leases and/or also may have an exciting two level interior layout .                         
Life in Sarnia for many is all about living on or near the open blue waters and the design features found here are very much in tune with what the marketplace now craves.
