Why You Should Buy a Home in a Lake Commmunity - Lakeside Living Now!

For years, living in a lake community has had a certain allure to Calgarians. In a city surrounded by prairie, lake communities are a city oasis for many. With that perfect mix of nearby urban amenities and a relaxing cottage-like atmosphere, families will never be bored in a lake community.

Maybe you're not sure about a lake community. Or perhaps you're not sure which lake community would be best for your family. In that case, read on to find out 5 great reasons why living in a lake community like Mahogany Lakeside Living in Calgary with Stepper Homes could be the perfect choice!

1. The Four Season Beach Club

In the summer of 2015, the brand new Mahogany Beach Club opened to rave reviews. This 22,000 sq. ft. facility has variety of functions, both indoor and outdoor. Inside, the club is meant to be a community hub, and include a gymnasium, meeting rooms, storage, showers and so much more! Outdoors, there is outdoor workout equipment, tennis courts, fishing pier, barbeque pits... and of course, sandy beaches! 

Around the corner is the West Beach which includes picnic tables, beach volleyball, a fire pit, and small day complex with washrooms and change rooms. 

In the winter, all of this transitions into a winter wonderland. Where there were previously swimming lessons, you can ice fish, skate, and play hockey. 

Year round activities run all year round, and you can find everything from a Movie in the Park to Christmas Market to Halloween Howl. Families will never be bored with this many opportunities for fun!

2. Parks & Open Spaces 

Mahogany Lake is by far the largest of Calgary's lakes at 63 acres! Beaches add another 21 acres to the outdoor lake space. But the other outdoor spaces in the community are just as impressive. Across from the new Mahogany Beach Club is Central Park, a 13 acre park, to be opened in 2017. East of the lake is the beautiful Wetlands area. This 74 acre naturalized reserve is a hub for wildlife, and has pathways that wrap all the way around it. The pathways are quiet trails that are scattered with interpretive areas, and surrounded by natural beauty.

Mahogany is also close to everything. Currently under construction, the Village Market is slated for a late 2016 opening, with an exciting list of shops and services. Groceries, shopping, restaurants, banks, and so much more will officially be part of the community within months. 

Mahogany is also near a number of majopr access routes, including being moments away from Stoney Trail, Deerfoot Trail, and 52nd Street, all leading to the greater Calgary area. Also moments away are access to Kananaskis and the mountains via Highway 22X, and all points South via Highway 2. 

Within 10 minutes of Mahogany is Fish Creek Park, and within 15 minutes, you can be at one of 5 different golf courses! The new Seton shopping centre and South health campus are also moments away, and will be a huge hub for the southeast communities in Calgary.
