Real Estate at Buck Lake
Buck Lake is an exceptional opportunity for Albertans looking to invest in recreational real estate.
Buck Lake is very accessible to urban centers and nearby towns. It is only 120km to Edmonton and within a short drive to Rocky Mountain House and Drayton Valley.
Calgarians have few lakes of this quality accessible for weekend enjoyment. Buck Lake is approx. 260km north of Calgary and is beautifully forested having crown or reserve lands along much of the shoreline.
Located lakefront in Greystones at north end of Buck Lake.
Buck Lake is still largely undiscovered and thus has continued to be a tranquil lake without the crowds seen at lakes closer to Calgary or Edmonton. Buck Lake is a similar size to Sylvan Lake and being deeper into the boreal forest its canopy is more diverse than Sylvan Lake.
Buck Lake also is fabulously situated to access more crown land (than Sylvan Lake which is situated in the middle of farm land) for outdoor activities like sledding and quadding. Is is possible to make excursions to small nearby lakes like Gosling lake and Medicine lake just south of Buck Lake.
With the recent pandemic, people throughout Canada have started to realize that they can work remotely or spend more time away from their urban homes.
This has created a new demand for lake living. Many believe that this shift will likely be a permanent change to how and where we live and work resulting in continued long term demand for lake properties ultimately driving up prices.
Best of all there are four seasons of fun at Buck Lake.
The prices for real estate are still possibly the best deal in western Canada considering what Buck Lake offers and the high quality, large lots with great proximity to a large population.
If you have been considering Sylvan Lake or Pigeon Lake to buy a property – you should consider Buck Lake as it offers more value (i.e. bigger lake front lots without the crowds).
