Though there’s nary a house in sight at this stage, it’s easy to feel at home in Hamilton Heights Estates. After a long day at the office, what could be homier than peace, privacy and captivating mountain views, all within 10 minutes of south Calgary and Okotoks?

“This new, master-planned acreage community near DeWinton is limited to 18 unique lots,” said Jennifer Thacker, marketing co-ordinator for Hamilton Heights Estates. “You purchase a 2.5-acre lot and select your preferred custom builder to help create your new home. That freedom to choose is a big draw, as many people have an established relationship with a builder they trust, and here they’re not stuck with a builder the developer has chosen.”

As they enter the grounds through intricately designed concrete and steel gates, prospective buyers will find lots accented with attractive landscaping and featuring custom gates with eye-catching stone pillars at each residence. While buyers have some freedom to put their own stamp on each home, there are four or five house styles available to choose from to ensure a uniform feel to the community.

“No matter the layout you choose, you can enjoy extraordinary mountain, city or valley views,” said Thacker. “Residents will appreciate the thoughtful landscaping and enhancements, such as trees and bushes in the cul-de-sacs.

“A paved road runs through the development, and at the top of the hill, we’ll have trees and a bench where residents can sit and enjoy the view or walk their dog. That hilltop has the best view, but the vistas you can enjoy from the lots are unbelievable, regardless of where you are in the area.”

Even at the bottom of the hill, there is a water feature and stunning views with little to obstruct your gaze.

“This area draws families, executives and people who love to entertain,” said Thacker. “It’s the ideal spot if you want to be in the country and experience that open feeling without neighbors right on top of you, yet still be close to shops, restaurants, Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School and other amenities.”

Lots prices range from $425,000 – $625,000 plus GST, and include services to property line.
