The Cedars is a new and unique neighborhood development happening in Fernie, where the natural environment and resident lifestyles compliment each other in a community development never seen before.
Sitting on the edge of Mount Fernie Provicial Park, The Cedars consists of 100 acres in the Cedar Valley foothills. Upmost importance in this development is the preservation and establishment of recreation access, with 49% of the area being dedicated to green space. Bordering on Mount Fernie’s Provincial Park trail network provides an extension on the already world class trails allowing for hiking, mountain bike riding and of course Nordic skiing come winter time.
Another asset to this new community location is the current development of the Elk Valley Nordic Centre within The Cedars, giving skiers even more options and facilities right on their doorstep.
Focusing on family style homes with approximately 150 single family lots planned. Currently in phase one, 28 lots are officially on the market. Opening price point will start around $179 900 for a regular size lot with many options right up to half acre lots at the higher end.
In a shift towards new age initiatives, the idea is to have homes architecturally inspired by their surrounds with less focus on size and more on design. Building won’t be restricted to one company, giving owners freedom to build independently providing it complies with The Cedars architectural guidelines.
The Cedar Valley has an important history in the region and the town of Fernie. First explored by Europeans in the late 1800’s, the surrounding mountain range that sits immediately to the south was named the Lizard Range due to Salamanders discovered at the now world famous catskiing operations further up the valley, Island Lake Lodge. The Cedar Valley, Lizard Range and Mount Fernie have been a favorite year round recreation area for the community of Fernie and this new development will only aid in the access and enjoyment of these areas.
Pristine old growth forests, stunning mountains and recreation opportunities make The Cedars a leader in mountain town development. The importance of such a special environment is stressed with the incorporation of environmentally friendly guidelines and green space preservation.
Being only minutes from the historic Fernie downtown means The Cedars is an ideal location for access to Fernie Alpine Resort only 5 kms down the road. Fishing on the Elk River is literally on your doorstep and the Fernie Golf Club and Country Club in close proximity.
If you have been waiting for an opportunity to live and play in the mountains then The Cedars could be the answer for you. Build your dream home in this idyllic location and spend your family time enjoying the best of British Columbia’s outdoors.
