This is especially true when they see the properties that have already been constructed, as their architectural styles are unforgettable and include: Modern Classical, Queene Anne, Colonial, Richardson Romanesque, Tudor, Craftsman, Prairie, and Stick.
Making this community even more desirable is the fact that there are planned shops, restaurants, cafés, and small businesses that will be situated here in the future. These are sure to help increase the prices of homes in the future, which currently start anywhere from $700,000 to $800,000 depending on the type of property. Adding charm to the area overall is the fact that the historic military roots have not been forgotten. It's easiest to see this in the street names that are based on the Canadian military, which are each accompanied by beautiful plaques that explain the significance of their names.
