EDGEMOOR: SPRING BLOG
Spring has arrived, and the first tiny flowers are appearing along the river escarpment behind the view lots.
A pair of Mallards and Canada geese alternate in the retention pond, and fawns are being spotted in more ways than one with the whitetail does.
Everything is greening up so nicely.
We have just finished overseeding the lots with prairie grass and are hoping for a good rainfall shortly.
With the Covid go-nuts-in-your-confinement-lifestyle, we are seeing a fair amount of traffic by interested couples who are escaping their homes in the City.
Today, was absolutely perfect. Light breeze, moderate temperature, sunlight and a few clouds. The meadowlarks have been here for several weeks, and their song is beautiful.
These properties are on the Bluebird Trail, consisting of a series of nesting boxes, maintained by the organization of that name. Watch for bluebird eggs heralding another facet of the beautiful spring mornings out here.
When you have settled on your own lot along the coulee top, you may wish to have your own box installed, and watch the feeding, hatching, and eventual first flights. A robust fence post can be augered in on your property line and the Bluebird Society contacted for placement of a box.
Development is now complete, with the entrance feature also finished.
11 lots are now gone, quite a surprising outcome, but welcomed.
Three residences are completed, a fourth is almost there, and there are plans for new builds during the this Sumer and fall.
The sound of little children's voices floating over the "moor" is delightful.
A very beautiful residence is nearing completion on the lot beside Lot 1. Gorgeous chimneys, stonework and brick, with copper accents.
We are seeing increasing interest on Lots 4 and 11, so it will be exciting to welcome a new neighbour.
Although we will continue to refer to the lot numbers, here is a map of the actual addresses.
We are keeping the lot prices competitive so that those who share the vision of Edgemoor will be more comfortable with the higher build quality and beauty included in the controls.
The entrance feature's main light's colour temperature was in the blue spectrum, and DA Electric has found a great incandescent LED replacement, so now it is beautiful.
With some uncertainties about the economy, we are hearing that there is more interest in investing in a "destination" home, rather than the stock market. Especially with the amazingly low interest rates.
May 31: The bluebirds are back. One pair is building a nest in the Bluebird Trail box at 16 Sunrise Road. They are simply beautiful.
Som red winged blackbirds are appearing around the pond.
The weather and the views are spectacular, especially since the greening up from recent rains.
June 22: Very nice family moved into their new residence on Lot 6. We are happy for them. Can you imagine waking up that first morning in Edgemoor? Quiet, peaceful and just beautiful.
We re-seeded the unsold lots a few weeks ago, and were fortunate to have so much rain. Keeping the properties mowed allows grass to overcome the weeds.
