Why 1/2 Acre Lots are the Perfect Size – 3 Feature Lots FOR SALE!

While many people dream of owning an acreage with several acres of land, the vision is sometimes more enticing than the reality. The solitude of living rurally combined with the amount of work involved in maintaining that much property is a big adjustment! When speaking with acreage owners, we have often heard the term “acreage” replaced with “workreage” to convey the impact that taking care of their land has on their lifestyle. 

Not only that, but the cost to landscape a larger lot adds up fast. With lots that are under one acre, you can have a beautiful garden with perennials, grow your own veggies, and still have plenty of room for a fire pit — all without breaking your landscape budget.

Here, one of our young residents shows her bounty…

When designing the community, Spring Lake Ranch determined that for a balanced lifestyle, 1/2 an acre is the “perfect-size lot”. Surrounded by Environmental Reserve, a forested ravine, and a spring-fed lake, our lots give residents the space they want without having to dedicate all their free time to maintaining it. AND they have the privacy of country living while still being part of a community.

Today, SLR is home to so many wonderful residents enjoying the lifestyle we envisioned. Our remaining 1/2 acre lots feature all the aspects our community is known for: Stunning views, easy access to nature, and peaceful serenity. Ahhhhhhh.

Our Residents Say:

“The walkout bungalow design is what we have always wanted and to get it with a lake view is a serious plus. This lot size is perfect, big enough to run around in but not so big that the yard work will be overwhelming. We love how all we can see is the lake and beautiful trees out our windows.” ~Chris + Ange, Owners of The Lakeview

“We love the fact that we are so close to nature (the trails and lakes) but we are still just steps away from a playground for our kids. We have a large yard but also have neighbours close so we don’t feel isolated! It’s the best of both worlds. We are amazed at how quiet it is here, just a sense of peace!” ~Stephanie + Hugh, Owners of The Hawkswood

“We were also impressed at the thought and detail that went into the layout of the community. Ensuring that each lot maximizes the beauty of the area, the addition of walking trails and leaving as much of the natural landscape as possible during construction are a few of the highlights.” ~Meghan + Murray, Owners of The Lakewood
