Auburn Bay, SE Calgary Real Estate Listings and Community Info
Auburn Bay is a southeast Calgary community that has houses, townhomes, and side by side duplexes for sale, with the majority of properties being single family homes. As one of the city’s new communities, you’re also looking at new homes – usually in the 2-storey variety, though there is also a handful of 3-storey homes and bungalows available. Worried about living so far south? Don’t be – Stoney Trail and Deerfoot Trail are both immediately accessible, giving you an easy route to the other areas of Calgary. This neighborhood is bordered by Stoney Trail on the north, Seton Boulevard SE on the south, and Deerfoot Trail on the west.
Lake Living on the Southeast Edge
The highlight of living in Auburn Bay? The lake – which truly is fun for the whole family. You can sign out boats, rent picnic shelters, or spend an afternoon fishing. There are various pathways, playgrounds, parks, and tennis courts in the area – perfect for the more active members of your family. While there isn’t much shopping within Auburn Bay itself, there are a bunch of green spaces, and the nearby community of McKenzie Towne offers plenty of big box stores for your grocery needs. Schools that serve the community include Christ the King School, Cranston School, and McKenzie Lake School.
Medical professionals will be happy to note that South Health Campus is adjacent to the southern edge of the community. Everyone else, however, is looking at a commute. While the #14 Bridlewood/Cranston and the #406 Auburn Bay bus lines serve the area, most residents hop in their cars when they need to travel. Fortunately, Stoney Trail and Deerfoot Trail intersect at the northwestern corner of the community – and both are ideal for traversing across the city.
Used to be, you had to wake up before dawn, pack the car, grab your coffee, and drive out to the country if you wanted to find a lake suitable for fishing. In Auburn Bay, you have a lake you can fish in at your backdoor. If fishing isn’t your hobby of choice, you can apply some sunscreen, rent a boat, and paddle across the beautiful lake. Or, just hang out on the beach or wander the pathways where you’ll find plenty of young families walking the family dog.
A quick drive through the community will tell you that there are very few restaurants or coffee shops in the area – you’re looking at living in a true slice of suburbia and everything that comes along with that. Friendly neighbors barbecuing on summer nights, the smell of fresh cut grass on weekends, and plenty of children splashing around the lake.
