Auburn Bay, situated just off Deerfoot Trail and east of Seton Blvd., has become one of Calgary's sizzling new southeast lake communities. This great SE Calgary Carma neighborhood has a "live, work and play" lifestyle with something for everyone in all price ranges.
Auburn Bay's property types are very diverse. Starter homes, move up homes and estate-quality waterfront homes are all available in this fantastic community. Here you will find an abundance of well-constructed homes by quality Calgary builders such as Brookfield homes, Stepper Homes, Albi Homes, Baywest Homes and Morrison Homes to name a few.
The area offers amazing value for buyers. The beautiful fresh water lake and related amenities allow Auburn Bay to rival neighboring south east lake communities such as Lake Chaparral, Lake Bonavista, Lake Midnapore, Lake Sundance, and McKenzie Lake. The Auburn Bay community card comes with exclusive access to many amenities that add value to your fun and active urban lifestyle. The tennis court and beach activities such as volleyball, basketball and fishing provide entertainment for the residents, and we can't forget the green space with a fire pit for casual get-togethers and picnics in the summer. If you enjoy boating you can use your Auburn Bay card to rent a boat, or simply bring your own. In the winter, families can be seen skating on the ice rinks, and enjoying hot chocolate in the warmth of the surrounding fire pits.
Directly across Seton Blvd. from Auburn Bay is Calgary's newest South Hospital, scheduled to open its doors to the public in mid-2012. The forecast is that this new addition to the community will bring value to the properties, as Auburn Bay will likely become home to many professionals who are involved with the hospital. Another factor that will bring value to the current and future residents of both Seton and Auburn Bay is the large outdoor shopping centre that is currently in the planning stage; construction is proposed to start as early as spring 2012. This shopping centre will be similar to that of 130th Ave in McKenzie Town. The City of Calgary's proposed southeastern extension of the C-train system is planned to run along the community's eastern boundary, parallel to 52nd Street, enhancing commuting for residents.
