Building Your Dream Home At Forest Lakes

Home is where the heart is. It’s where you can relax, grow, and enjoy time with family and friends. At Forest Lakes, we have a variety of options to make your dream home a reality. Whether it’s love at first sight with one of our turn-key homes, or falling in love with one of our premium lots, the sky’s the limit when it comes to building your picture-perfect home from the ground up. While there are benefits to both options, here are our favourite reasons why building your dream home can be the best option for you and your family.

Location, Location, Location

A big part of creating your dream home is choosing the perfect location to call your own. You can choose the lot that best suits your lifestyle; whether it’s small and quaint, as are the lots in our Woodlands neighbourhood, or large with plenty of privacy, like our lots in Springview Heights.

Picture yourself playing catch with your children while being nestled in nature in the Woodlands, as the beauty of the outdoors surrounds you. A perk of living in the Woodlands is the fact you are only steps away from Forest Lakes’ amenities, such as the charming Boathouse and the picturesque walking trails, which are available for the whole family to enjoy. The Woodlands is a lovely neighbourhood for your family to call home.

Are larger lots and increased privacy your preference? Lots in Springview Heights boast seclusion and views of rolling hills that you can enjoy from your own front porch or back patio. These larger lots allow you to create an outdoor oasis for the whole family to love. Do you dream of being close to top amenities and chic boutiques? Springview Heights is only minutes away from the future Village Centre; an area for social gatherings, family fun, and convenient shopping.  This highly desired neighbourhood is an ideal area for you and your family to start your new journey.

Efficient Home Living

At Forest Lakes, we value sustainable living, which is why we incorporate  eco-friendly  features into our designs. Specifically in the Woodlands neighbourhood, all 62 of our lots utilize rainwater harvesting, meaning there is no strain on surrounding bodies of water, and less strain on your pocketbook. We also use energy-saving appliances in our homes, such as ducted heat pumps. Some other environmentally efficient features that we offer are plug-ins for your electric car in the garage, and the use of solar panels as a source of electricity. Looking to build a net-zero or net-positive home? We would love to work with you!

The Design Of Your Dreams

Does your dream home wish-list include an abundance of large windows drawing in natural light? Or maybe a small reading nook to enjoy your afternoon tea and a classic by Dickens? Our team is here to make your vision come to life. We have a variety of home designs that you can choose from and customize, based on your needs.  You also have the option of providing our team with a specific plan that you’ve been dreaming of. Together, we will ensure your new home matches Forest Lakes’ standards of high quality craftsmanship and stunning curb appeal.


Building a home from the ground up gives you the ability to customize even the smallest details. You can select paint colours, flooring and everything in between that will create a perfect oasis for your family. Do you love a bright and colorful home to rejoice in or do you prefer calm and neutral tones to create a relaxing sanctuary? No matter your taste, you can have it all. Do you envision a grand chandelier hanging over the dinning table, or a large island in the kitchen to prepare tasty meals? From light fixtures, to cabinets, final furnishings and more, you can choose your favourites to make your dream home come alive.
