Oak Bluff West Street Scape 2016

Purchase and build a new home to compliment your family’s needs can be the start of a lot of decision-making. Finding a brand new home in a brand new area can come with a lot of unfamiliarity, so it’s important to find that perfect home with features that can help your family transition seamlessly.

With so many communities in and beyond the city of Winnipeg, it can be hard to decipher what it is about a community that is unique. To help you find that perfect new home, we’ve highlighted the benefits of venturing just outside the city in the community of Oak Bluff West:

Space for your family to grow

When you travel beyond city limits, you are gifted with land that allows your family to expand both the indoor and outdoor living space giving you opportunity to grow. Each home is built on a wide lot (starting width is 70 feet), so you’ll get more elbow room between you and your neighbours to move around comfortably.  

The surrounding landscape allows you to spend time outdoors all year round. In the winter, snowmobile just outside the neighbourhood, set up a hockey rink in your backyard and host a game with your neighbours or take a walk on the beautiful limestone paths on a warm summer’s evening.  

Indoors, you’ll have more room to get creative when it comes to designing the layout. You’ll have to opportunity to design a bigger kitchen to maximize space in order to host large family gatherings or the ability to separate the master suite from your kid’s bedrooms to enjoy your own relaxing oasis.

Design a home for your lifestyle

The advantage of building new is that you’ll have the chance to design a home that will accommodate your family’s needs and wants to better fit your lifestyle. In Oak Bluff West, you have the chance to work with one of Qualico Communities’ home builders who can help achieve the vision you have. 

Surround yourself with great amenities

When moving into Oak Bluff West, there is access to great schools and early education. Beside the community and just a walk down the street, the Oak Bluff Community School offers K-8 while Oak Bluff Early Years offers preschool and school-aged programming.

As an extension of the town of Oak Bluff, residents can take advantage of all the amenities offered in the town, including Access Credit Union, Roxy's Diner, and Tim Hortons. Residents of both communities can even stay connected with the Resident Forum to stay up-to-date on community events, exciting news or fundraisers.

Residents will also be just a short drive from Kenaston Common and Seasons of Tuxedo, one of the most popular retail shopping areas in Winnipeg. You’ll have access to Costco, Sobeys, Safeway, Wal-Mart and more to get all the shopping done in no time.

If you’re looking to have some fun outside the neighbourhood, you’ll be in close proximity to Cineplex Odeon McGillivray & VIP Cinemas, Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline park and FortWhyte Alive –plenty to keep the family busy!

The surrounding landscape

Every community is unique to its surrounding landscape and Oak Bluff West is home to luscious native grasses and wetlands that not only provide texture, colour and beauty to the area, but come with many benefits. With more than five acres of native grasses, wildflowers, shrubs and trees, residents can expect to see fewer geese, as the longer grasses are not attractive to them, mow less and the grasses will help to absorb carbon from the air and help purify the soil.
