Middle Sackville: Indigo Shores at McCabe Lake
Updated: Nov 13, 2022
Drive a few minutes past Lower Sackville in the Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) and you'll find yourself in the quiet, suburban neighbourhood of Middle Sackville, home to the Indigo Shores community. Indigo Shores is a multi-phase development that boasts tranquil lakeside living surrounded by lush natural landscape. This development, and future developments in the area, was built upon a community vision that suggested particular aspects be included in this community for better quality of life. They include:
• recreational opportunities
• an outdoor public gathering space
• a cultural centre
• a commercial centre
• a variety of housing types, and
• seniors housing
What's the best thing about the Indigo Shores community? It's built on McCabe Lake, a pristine body of water that spans 2.5 kilometers. Perfect for swimming, canoeing and kayaking in the warmer months, and skating in the wintertime, McCabe Lake truly has something to offer all residents of Indigo Shores. Surrounding parkland offers ample space to bike, hike, explore and discover.
Perhaps one of the most overlooked features of this lakefront community is its convenient location - Indigo Shores is located off of Highway 101 via Exit 2A - Margeson Drive. The community is approximately 25 minutes from Downtown Halifax, 10 minutes from the Bedford Commons, and 10 minutes from the Burnside Industrial Park. All of this is good news for commuters and families with busy lifestyles!
Indigo Shores will eventually feature over 450 large, wooden home sites that are expected to be built over the next few years. There is the option to purchase a building lot for your custom dream home, or choose a custom home package from one of their top-quality home builders. Home builders include:
