Lakeside Living in Calgary

Nothing says summer quite like sitting by the lake with a cold drink in one hand and a good book in the other. The air that sweeps over the water is cool and refreshing, the sound of the shore summer's best symphony. Dig your toes into the sand and wade through the water. If summer was something tangible, this would be it. 
 
Does this all sound like a beautiful dream from a faraway place? A little too exotic for dry Alberta? For a long time it was nothing more than a pipedream. The only solution was to buy a vacation home someplace like Arizona or Radium. However, innovators quickly found a sweet solution: lakefront living. 
 
One of the most popular trends in real estate  is crafting communities around man-made lakes to provide family's the fun, sun and waves of a beach vacation. These communities are a retreat--a vacation home within a home. They provide luxury, lakeside living in beautiful Calgary all year round. 
 
While nothing beats floating on the lake during a hot summer day, a neighborhood ice hockey tournament comes close. Lakeside living provides you family fun no matter what the weather. These properties get a gorgeous view every season and are perfect for anyone who loves to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. 
 
Right now the hottest Lakefront community is Mahogany. Known as a tight-knit community of mainly young families and first time home owners, Mahogany has taken advantage of its lakeside living to offer residents safe, inclusive family fun all year round. 
 
Other popular waterfront communities are: Arbour Lake, Mckenzie Lake, Heritage Point, Harmony, Coral Springs and many more!  
 
Don't forget that Calgary is neighbors with both Cochrane and Chestermere, two small towns that are easily accessible from the city and both have waterfront living. Whether you buy a condo on the Bow or a luxury home on the lake, waterfront living brings tremendous value to yourself and your property. 
 
On our website you can refine your search of homes to see what waterfront properties are currently on the market. All you have to do is go to "refine search" and select "waterfront." See what Calgary has to offer you and start dreaming of next summer when it will be you, a cold drink, a good book, and sand between your toes.
