It is undeniable that condominium living, no matter the location, provides residents with an attractive way of life. Homeowners can take comfort in low-maintenance living, capitalize on location by enjoying nearby amenities, socialize with close-by neighbours, and so much more.

But in a province with noticeable growth in the development of condominiums, how do condo seekers decide which is a best fit for themselves and their family? The developers of Forest Lakes Country Club believe it all comes down to lifestyle.

Forest Lakes Country Club is Atlantic Canada’s newest resort-style community, currently under development in West Hants, Nova Scotia. The location of Forest Lakes allows for easy access to the province’s best attractions, including Downtown Halifax, the Annapolis Valley and the seafaring South Shore, while offering just enough seclusion that residents will relish in the lakeside setting and undeniable sense of community.

The Edgewater is Forest Lakes’ newest 12-unit condominium building, centrally located within the natural, serene setting of this new community. The three-story building features a wood and stone-accented exterior, inspired by the classic, chalet-style architecture found in a mountain-style home, while the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout truly bring the outdoors in. 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 offers a spacious layout, including a modern kitchen with high-quality appliances, innovative storage options, a large patio for relaxing or entertaining, and much more.

The Edgewater, like the rest of Forest Lakes, was designed with residents’ day-to-day lives in mind. The building overlooks Hole #14 of the community’s newly constructed Nicklaus Design golf course, which was designed by the architects behind golf’s legendary ‘Golden Bear’, Jack Nicklaus. The Edgewater also allows easy access to the community’s endless list of year-round activities and amenities. Residents who like staying active can enjoy afternoon hikes through the community’s many kilometers of multi-purpose trails, or a leisurely canoe ride on Cochran Lake, followed by a bonfire at The Boathouse. For those who delight in a more relaxed lifestyle, simply unwind on the patio and take in unspoiled views of golf and Cochran Lake, while enjoying an al-fresco style dinner with friends and family.

Now in Phase One of development, Forest Lakes Country Club is set to have a number of new homes built this year, and new residents of The Edgewater will be ready to move in within a few short months. Over half of the units are already sold to clients who see a great return on investment living in a community like Forest Lakes. Meanwhile, interest for the remaining units is only increasing as progress on community amenities like the 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course continues to unfold.

No matter your lifestyle, The Edgewater at Forest Lakes offers condominium options that are truly unique, in a community that will encourage you and your family to live life as it should be lived – to the fullest.
