The Edgewater Condominiums: Forest Lakes’ newest lifestyle option

Condo for article

As featured in The Chronicle Herald.

Condominiums, no matter the location, provide residents with an alluring lifestyle. From maintenance-free living and convenience in location, to the ability to socialize with nearby neighbours, condominium living is something we can easily all picture for ourselves at any stage of life.

But with over 25 condominium developments currently under development in the Halifax Regional Municipality alone, how does one choose? These condos may offer the advantage of urban metropolis living, or may be located just steps from your Downtown office, but what they don’t offer is privacy and tranquility, a feeling of being close with nature, open space, and a life that generally moves at a slower and more enjoyable pace. For these reasons, it may be time to look outside of the city limits for your next home.

Forest Lakes is Atlantic Canada’s premier master-planned community, located in the heart of Nova Scotia, just 35 minutes from Downtown Halifax. Situated in the middle of this 1,700+acre community is its newest 12-unit condominium building, The Edgewater.

These condos, like the Forest Lakes community at large, were designed with residents’ day-to-day lives in mind. Located near a few of Forest Lakes’ incredible amenities, such as the multi-purpose trails, perfect for hiking, biking or snowshoeing, Cochran Lake, including the Boathouse and community bonfire area, and of course, Forest Lakes Golf Club, Atlantic Canada’s only 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course.

And for those who delight in a more relaxed lifestyle, simply sit back on your unit’s patio and take in the stunning evening sunsets, sights of Cochran Lake, and views of Hole #14 of Forest Lakes Golf Club, which The Edgewater overlooks. Really, where else can you enjoy the benefits of condominium living while also making the most of the outdoors?

The Edgewater was designed by award-winning architects, DTJ Design of Colorado, who specialize in integrating the intricacies of the build with the natural character of the surrounding site. This is evident through the building’s wood and stone-accented exterior, which was inspired by the classic, chalet-style architecture found in a mountain-style home.

Residents of The Edgewater will occupy one, two or three-bedroom units, which are ideal living quarters for a family of any size, from young, growing families, to retired empty-nesters. Each unit is built using high-quality, sustainable products and features a spacious layout with 9 ft. ceilings and innovative storage options.

Bathrooms are spa-like, some with a soaker tub, designer counter tops and chrome finishes, while kitchens offer contemporary convenience, making use of stylish fixtures and top-quality appliances. No matter your design preference, the Forest Lakes team will ensure all residents have their vision of home brought into fruition, seamlessly.

The Edgewater offers condominium options that are truly unique, while providing just enough seclusion that residents will relish in the natural, lakeside setting and undeniable sense of community of Forest Lakes.

Now in Phase One of development, the Forest Lakes community is all set to have a number of new homes built this year. Residents of The Edgewater will be ready to move-in this summer.

And, with only a few units remaining, the time has never been better to contact the Forest Lakes team to learn more about owning one of these remaining units in this prestigious building.
