A little about the Development......

Park Place is about quality of life! Homes at Park Place have been designed for efficiency and economy without sacrificing quality and luxury detailing. The variety of floor plans offered will appeal to young families, retirees and professionals alike. Well over half of the development site is dedicated as CVRD parkland hence the name Park Place. Award winning Cadillac Homes in its tradition will be finishing each home with a fully landscaped yard complete with automated sprinkler systems (one of the water conservation measures taken by the developers) and in doing so create an entire neighbourhood by design with beautiful streetscape.

This is a very unique property as it has 3 different zonings, a 104 year old farm house and a very substantial newer 2 storey building with over 1600 sq.ft. per floor. Current use of this building is as a preschool facility. The P1 zoning also allows a number of other uses. The remainder of the land is zoned A2 (Agriculture), not in the Agriculture Land Reserve with a small piece zoned R2.
