Forest Lakes Country Club in Nova Scotia, Canada is a 1,700+ acre site with overall planning permission for a premier four-season resort offering a variety of residential and commercial real estate and a range of on-site facilities and amenities.
This will be a four-season lifestyle resort packed with amenities embracing the great Canadian outdoors. The land was rezoned in June of 2008 to permit a resort-style community with many accommodations. Planning permission approval was achieved and the first phase of subdivision was approved at the end of 2012. Recently, we have finished building our three model homes, including two single-family homes and one semi-detached home, as well as our feature structure, The Lodge, which will be used for special functions and events at Forest Lakes Country Club. We have also built several main roads and many walking trails throughout the site, and have continued clearing our equestrian area as well as our 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course.
Forest Lakes Country Club will be a resort unlike any other development in Atlantic Canada. It will offer an extensive range of accommodation options including villas, townhouses, condominiums, duplexes and single-family homes with supporting amenities and facilities that will cater to local residents as well as overseas clients looking to invest or purchase a second home in Canada.
