Projects of­fer re­cre­ational po­ten­tial

Calgary Herald New Condos - - Recreation & Investment Properties - CLAIRE YOUNG

Here are some of the cur­rent de­vel­op­ment projects that may be of in­ter­est to po­ten­tial buy­ers look­ing for a recre­ation prop­erty in Fernie:

Alpine Trails Moun­tain Com­mu­nity: A new phase of sin­gle-fam­ily house lots is about to start sales at the project, a recre­ation de­vel­op­ment be­gun 14 years ago by East Koote­nay Land Corp. It is lo­cated at the base of Mount Fernie, Mount Trin­ity and Mount Proc­tor.

Fairy Creek, Fernie’s main wa­ter source, runs through the de­vel­op­ment. With in­cred­i­ble views, the com­mu­nity is also within walk­ing dis­tance of down­town.

“A lot of our pur­chasers are from Cal­gary, or from here, and they’re look­ing at a place they’ll re­tire to — and for a place for them and their fam­ily to recre­ate,” says sales man­ager Mike Con­tini.

Roughly 80 lots will be on the mar­ket within about a month. They will start at about $180,000, not in­clud­ing taxes.

They will have 60- to 70foot frontages and back onto an in­te­grated path sys­tem. Own­ers can bring their own builder.

“It looks like the com­mu­nity has grown up in the for­est,” says Con­tini.

The de­vel­op­ment has strict ar­chi­tec­tural guide­lines, in­clud­ing ro­bust tim­ber and rock el­e­ments.

Mount Fernie Es­tates — The de­vel­op­ment is a col­lec­tion of large lots start­ing on a south-fac­ing slope off Burma Road.

The scenic, moun­tain-view lots start from $190,000. The builder/de­vel­oper of Mount Fernie Es­tates, Igor Landa, has his home at the de­vel­op­ment.

Tim­ber­line and Tim­ber Land­ing: For peo­ple whose pri­mary in­ter­est in Fernie is ski­ing and moun­tain bik­ing, four new sin­gle-fam­ily house lots have come avail­able in Tim­ber­line at the vil­lage at the base of Fernie Alpine Re­sort.

Th­ese large lots are be­tween $300,000 and $400,000. Re­sorts of the Cana­dian Rock­ies can rec­om­mend builders or own­ers can bring their own. Lots with a home of about 2,500 to 3,000 square feet are ex­pected to be slightly un­der $1 mil­lion. Late next year, the com­pany ex­pects to bring on Tim­ber Land­ing, a large de­vel­op­ment cur­rently zoned for sin­gle-fam­ily lots, says Hans Nieuwen­huis of Re­sorts of the Cana­dian Rock­ies.
