We Calgarians are extremely lucky to live in close proximity to the Rocky Mountains in an area prone to the weather phenomena called a chinook, capable of warming up a cold winter’s day (and our spirits) by several degrees in a matter of hours.
However, what our natural topography could use more of are lakes which just happens to be a matter that some Calgary lake community developers have taken into their own hands. See all Calgary Lake Communities and Home Listings now.
Today, Calgary’s lake neighbourhoods are some of the most popular on the market. From new areas like Mahogany and Auburn Bay to more establish like Midnapore and Coral Springs, each lake community has its own set of differences providing a full spectrum of options to buyers looking to live the lakeside lifestyle.
Here are our top 3 reasons why one of Calgary’s lake communities may just be for you the next time you make a move in the local real estate market:
1 – Lakeside
The lake, often found central to a host neighbourhood, is quite obviously one of the most alluring features of buying in any Calgary lake community.
During the spring and summer is when the benefits of suburban lakeside living are most noticeable as residents and their guests have exclusive access to the lake.
From water sports and super-soaker fights with the kids to sun-tanning and rest and relaxation, it’s all do-able on the lake beach just a short walk away from home.
2 – Family Oriented
Many parents look for that extraordinary community setting to raise a family in, so it’s no surprise that Calgary lake neighbourhoods fit that role perfectly.
During warmer months of the year, children from all over the neighbourhood frolic to the lake in search of fun with their peers while parents meet new friends of their own – and secretly network I might add – to keep tabs on the kids at all times!
Most of Calgary’s lake communities also have active community centres that host a variety of events every week ranging from yoga classes to social gatherings, some of which are absolutely free or included in residential lake membership fees.
3 – Attainable
Calgary’s wide variety of lake community real estate allows buyers from all walks of life to take part in a lakeside lifestyle.
Prices in Auburn Bay for example, one of the newest lake neighbourhoods in SE Calgary, range from the $200,000’s to $1 million and up for everything from condos to lakefront homes. Learn more at Auburn Bay – Family Oriented Lakeside Living in Calgary.
