acreage projects throughout Central Alberta, including scenic areas like Gull Lake, Red Deer & Lacombe County, Pine Lake, Sylvan Lake and more. If you’re hoping to make the move to acreage living sooner than later but are unsure of what to expect, below are a few key pointers to keep in mind. Your Ideal Lifestyle Starts Here While there are endless reasons people choose to move from the city to an acreage, the main draw tends to be the opportunity to reconnect with a smaller community and enjoy the peaceful draw of nature. Acreages offer you and your family the chance to disconnect from the world around you and bask in the quiet beauty that Central Alberta is known for. The main benefits of building a custom acreage include: Privacy One of the biggest draws for acreage living is the unparalleled privacy having your own plot of land affords. An acreage lot gives you plenty of land to explore and call home but also shields you from the outside world and grants you your own private oasis away from it all. Ample Space The large lot size of acreages means you’ll have plenty of space to roam and play, which means that larger families never have to worry about feeling cramped or cluttered. Natural Beauty Around Every Corner Being further removed from the lights and busyness of the city means you’re free to enjoy the uninterrupted beauty of Alberta’s heartland. You’ll find that you’re able to breathe a little better, encounter the local wildlife, and enjoy the shining stars, all from the comfort of your own home. Special Considerations If you’ve never lived in a rural locale before, there are a few points you need to be aware of. These include: Sewage Handling Unlike homes located on a city grid, acreages will need to arrange their own source of drainage and upkeep, making a decent septic system an absolute must. Hydro As your new home will likely be outside of regular municipal lines for water delivery, you’ll need to determine how to access water on your property. In addition, your property may require new service connections for electricity and power generation.
