Life At Your Own Speed

One of the biggest aspects that draws people to acreage living is the fact that it enables you to take a step back from hectic living and reconnect with a slower, more enjoyable day-to-day pace.

Acreages offer you the chance to disconnect from the world around you and bask in the quiet beauty that Central Alberta is famous for. Additional benefits include:


Tired of loud neighbours, noisy streets, and prying eyes? No need to worry! Having your own land gives you the ability to live freely, without having to worry about disturbing, or being disturbed by, anyone else!

Ample Space

The large lot sizes of acreages make them a perfect fit for anyone looking for lots of space to play and unwind. Whether you need extra room for pets or for the kids to roam, your family will have more than enough space to call your own.

Natural Beauty

One of the best parts of being farther removed from the city is that you get to be up close and personal with nature every single day. Enjoy shining stars, ample foliage and the tranquil quiet of your very own lot.

Factors to Keep in Mind

If you’re new to rural living and are used to having the amenities of a bigger city, it’s worth mentioning that there are a few changes you’ll need to anticipate with an acreage. Such details are important and will need to be factored in during the build process, including:

Sewage Handling

Sewage is handled a little differently on an acreage and septic systems are crucial for the safe removal of waste. Before settling in, ensure you have proper lines in place to facilitate drainage and upkeep.

Water and Electricity

Another aspect that you’ll need to plan around ASAP is whether or not your home will have access to city water delivery as well as a regular power connection. If not, you’ll need to arrange both services prior to moving in. Abbey Platinum Master Built is happy to work alongside you to ensure you have a plan in place for all services, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to settle in with ease!
