A Quieter, More Relaxed Way of Living

Share:

A beautiful stretch of highway takes you from Winnipeg to The Highlands, winding 
south alongside the Red River to Niverville, Manitoba. Though only 20 minutes from Winnipeg, this endless stretch of fields and wooded riverbanks lets you know that you’ve entered a quieter, more relaxed way of living.

“The Highlands offers all of the amenities of city living with the feel of country living,” says Len Peters, developer of The Highlands. “We are certainly not just another city subdivision.”

Peters and his team have worked hard to build a rural development community, focusing their energy on creating lots that feel open and spacious. “The vast majority of our lots back onto open spaces of lakes and a golf course.”

The Highlands is a strategically planned neighbourhood. Separating most of the residences from the highway is the beautiful links-style golf course, Old Drovers Run, set to officially open in the spring of 2016. Designed by Graham Cooke International Golf Course architects, they are intentionally landscaped to echo some of Scotland’s most historic courses. 

There will be nine holes playable in the summer of 2016. Men’s and women’s leagues, as well as a junior program, are currently being organized. Award-winning golf instructors have been hired to teach the junior program.

Open to the community last summer, the course was very well received by the public. 

This year, developers of The Highlands are offering two free single-season passes for every new lot purchase.

When it’s finished, the development will feature over two miles of paved paths and walkways leading to the course and community parks, as well as over 30 acres of lakes. The Highlands Park, currently in progress, will be surrounded by greenery and add to the country charm with a variety of picnic areas and active play areas. Families will be able to enjoy a gaming bowl and sports field that transforms into an outdoor hockey rink in the winter months.

The single-family lots in the residential areas range in size from 60 to 80 feet wide. Regular lots start at $80,000, with walk-out basement lots starting at $99,000. The development caters to a wide demographic, from singles to families to seniors. There is even a selection of attached homes with high-end finishes and open-concept floor plans.

Also in the community is the Highlands Village, with four- and five-plex multifamily townhouses. These are two- and three-storey homes within easy access of the golf course. This part of the development is situated on its own expansive green space.

Peters touches on one of the most impressive reasons to make The Highlands your home: “The Highlands is situated on a sprawling land-scape with unimpeded views and… of course, the sunsets. Spectacular sunsets!”
