The types of homes in the Preserve

Adding to the housing diversity are several clusters of townhouses and low-rise condominium complexes within the community. Designed as a low to medium-density neighborhood, The Preserve offers streetscapes that are notably more open and spacious compared to older neighborhoods.

Moving to the Preserve

In the last few years, demand for houses in the Preserve has grown tremendously. The neighbourhood is popular for young families due to its safe, peaceful, tight-knit community feel and great schools. The Preserve offers a much more quiet and relaxing living experience than the larger cities to the east. Moving all your earthly possessions can be a daunting task, especially if you’re a first-time homebuyer. Self-storage can be a great tool to alleviate some of the pressure on move-in day. Also, it can continue to help keep your new house organized after you’ve completed your move.
