For sale this fantastically inviting vacant lot has a superlative waterfront location in the Summer Village of Norglenwold located on the shores of Sylvan Lake. 205 Grand Avenue has riparian rights (owning land to the water’s edge). On many lakefront properties you do not own land to the waters edge. This waterfront lot includes a most sought-after boathouse that is grandfathered in. Just imagine building your dream home with exceptional panoramic water views, adapting to the ever-changing seasons and most of all creating a family legacy that will bring your children and your grand children back to for years to come.
With the current land use bylaw in the Summer Village of Norglenwold being 50% site coverage your dream home can be anything you desire. Municipal sewer is an enormous plus. It allows for more options when planning your dream home and no pump out costs or worries. For homeowners who need to still be connected for either working from home or looking for streaming options for evening entertainment Shaw cable is at your property line. Grand Avenue is paved, and snow is cleared in the winter making access a breeze whenever you arrive.
The lot size is deceiving when you view it from the road because of the trees. The lot size is:
Width at the road is 65 Feet
Length on the west side is 220 Feet
Length on the east side is 202 Feet
Width at the bank is 46 Feet
Trees can be removed for development, but vegetation will need to be replaced on the bank as part of your development.
Boathouses cannot be added to a property if they are not already there, but they can be repaired. Ask anyone who lives on the lake that does not have a boathouse and I am sure that would be at the top of their wish list.
205 Grand Avenue is steps away from the walking path across Chipmunk creek, an impressive place to explore, then continuing your walk or bike ride down Honeymoon Drive onto Last Chance Way and then turning around making your way back home.
You are just minutes away from the Town of Sylvan Lake, with its boardwalk at the main beach, shops, restaurants and an hour and a half away from Calgary and Edmonton making for a comfortable commute.
The two questions I get asked the most about this property are:
Is there a building commitment time? The answer is no there is not.
Can I park an RV on the property without building a home? The answer is no.
As a seller I live all year round in the Summer Village of Norglenwold and I can say emphatically that there is not a better place to live and create family memories!
There is no perfect time to buy when it comes to prices. You will always be a month or a year behind the peak or the bottom of the market whether you are buying or selling. It is impossible to time it precisely. What’s important to focus on is whether the home or investment works for you right now, and whether there are enough factors (interest rates, your own financial situation, inventory) that come together to make this a good time for you personally to make a move. Particularly when you are talking about a primary residence, if you get a lot of years living in and really enjoying the home, I always consider that a good investment as it’s where you spend most of your time – now more than ever!
I am just a 5-minute walk away from 205 Grand Avenue if you would like a personal tour.
