A lot of people dream of living on a quiet place in the country. Having lived on an acreage for 24 years, I can say that it can definitely be a wonderful experience. Living in the country can be quite different than living in the city though, so careful planning needs to be done when considering making a move to the country. The more information you can arm yourself with before your purchase, the better. You need to know about septic systems, water systems, additional costs of country living, garbage responsibilities and school districts just to name a few. Explore our website to find some essential information about living on an acreage.
Although many people refer to "Sherwood Park acreages", they are really considered Strathcona County acreages.
Strathcona County is a "specialized municipality". It's made up of the urban center of Sherwood Park and a large rural area which includes the following 8 hamlets: Antler Lake, Ardrossan, Collingwood Cove, Half Moon Lake, Hastings Lake, Josephburg, North Cooking Lake and South Cooking Lake. You can find acreage developments scattered throughout the county.
Here is the usual starting list of an acreage buyer:
-close to town
-less money than a comparable property in the city
-a larger home than a similarly priced home in the city
Acreages tend to cost more than a similar home in town. Also keep in mind that when purchasing a home in the country, you are also usually buying a much larger piece of land than a city lot.
Generally, acreages close to Sherwood Park are much more than a comparable home in town. The further out you go, the lower the price.
