Though universally comfortable, the kinds of homes that you'll find in Calgary's many planned lake communities range from affordable split-level designs to custom-built 21st-Century Modern masterpieces. And if you're looking for a residence that resembles an urban cottage, you'll find Calgary lake homes for sale with vacation-ready features like private docks, spacious decks with hot tubs, and wood-burning fireplaces that'll warm you up on those cold winter nights. Of course, since people live here all year round, there's a lot of practicality to these homes as well.
Taking a quick look at the listings, you'll discover homes offering:
spacious updated kitchens
energy efficient appliances and HVAC systems
soaring vaulted ceilings with skylights
large mudrooms, closets, and pantries
If you've always imagined yourself living a relaxed cottage lifestyle but can't bear the thought of being far from the modern conveniences of the city, then Calgary lake real estate is for you. Whether you choose an established community or a new development, you'll quickly discover that you can have it all.
No matter which lake community you choose, there are plenty of reasons to embrace Calgary lake real estate. First and foremost are the fantastic recreational opportunities that open up when you live near the water—go ahead, picture yourself skating, hockey, and ice fishing during the winter, then swimming, boating, and beach sports all summer long! There are lake communities in almost every quadrant in Calgary, which makes it easy to find a lakefront home located near the parts of the city you visit most. If you have your heart set on a particular elementary school for the kids, want to be able to walk near the Bow River, or love weekly shopping trips to Southcentre Mall, chances are that you'll find a lake home nearby.
One thing to look into when you're touring Calgary lake homes for sale is the restrictions (or lack thereof) that the community has on lake activity. For example, does the community allow boats with motors, or is it non-motorized crafts only? Are winter activities like ice fishing or hockey permitted? The Vanderveen Team has extensive knowledge of Calgary lake communities, so we'll be happy to give you the inside scoop.
At the Vanderveen Team, we love Calgary's lake communities, so feel free to give us a call at (403) 253-5678 or drop us a line to talk about them! Whether you're buying or selling, we offer valuable advice that comes from our own experience in the area.
