Auburn Bay: The Feel Of A Country Village Environment
Nestled in Deep South Calgary, south of Stoney Trail and east of Deerfoot Trail, is the community of Auburn Bay. Alluring in its open spaces and charming country architecture, Auburn Bay elevates the lakeside lifestyle among Calgary’s Deep South communities. The surrounding neighbourhoods include McKenzie Towne to the north, Seton to the south, Cranston to the west, and Mahogany to the east. The welcoming entrance, the 43-acre freshwater lake with beach and private park areas give the feel of a country village environment. Homes adorned in rich and bright colours line Auburn Bay, creating a truly unique experience for its residents.
The Heart of Cottage Country Minutes from Urban Centres
With an Auburn Bay home, residents can relish in cottage country living without losing easy access to Calgary’s bustling core. The latest expansion of the Stoney Trail Ring Road extending just beyond the borders of Auburn Bay puts the airport and north Calgary within reach. Additionally, Kananaskis and the Rockies can be accessed by Stoney Trail, offering residents even greater options for outdoor activity.
Urban amenities are near your doorstep. Seton boasts an urban commercial and shopping district just south of Auburn Bay. Both Cranston Market and High Street in McKenzie Towne are a short trip west and north, respectively. McKenzie Towne’s retail and business area along 130th Avenue is only a quick skip in the car.
A Bounty of Green Space and Fresh Water
Auburn Bay boasts swaths of green space, water features and numerous park areas, private and public. The private park is a 13-acre retreat for residents which envelops Auburn House, a 16,000 square foot lodge which functions as a community and recreation centre. Even with hundreds of homes surrounding the lake, this community dances with natural features and country style elements that help to keep the living easy and active.
Auburn Bay Real Estate: Get into the Country
Auburn Bay homes are adorned in the architectural style of cottage country. Distinct and distinguished craftsmanship complete the shutters, roof brackets and gables of these vivid and brightly coloured homes. Dormers, window boxes and cupolas give Auburn Bay homes their true country charm. Walking through the tree-lined streets on the way to the lake, you are filled with the smells and scenes of the country without ever having set foot outside city limits.
Auburn Bay Schools and Community Living
Auburn Bay and the surrounding communities have five new schools, either opening or already completed. The elementary school, Auburn Bay Elementary, serves students from kindergarten to grade 4. It was designed to house up to 600 local students, and is centrally located at 950 Auburn Bay Boulevard SE. The new Catholic school, Prince of Peace is located at 43 Auburn Meadows Blvd SE and holds 900 students from K-9.
A public middle school (5-8) McKenzie Highlands School in McKenzie Towne, opens in January 2017.
Located in Auburn House is the Auburn Bay Residents Association (ABRA), an organization that was founded to preserve the quality of life in Auburn Bay and maintain community facilities. As the central facility for the entire community, ABRA provides sustainable management of services, equipment and amenities that the community enjoys.
Membership in the ABRA is automatic with residence in the community, and the operating Board of Directors is comprised of residents and Brookfield Residential representatives.
