The Brownstones In Rainbow Falls At Chestermere Lake
If you are looking for great value check out these two to three bedroom townhouses with double garage and full basement.
The Brownstones at Chestermere Lake were built between 2006 and 2014 are really a great buy right now. Originally priced as high as $350,000 list prices are now as low as $280,000. These are great units as they have a 2 car detached garage. There are a variety of floor plans with 2 bedrooms and a den, a 3 bedroom plan, 2 bedroom & 2 baths upstairs. There are full basements, with some being walkouts.
There is a difference in the features and floor plans as time went on. The newer units have granite, hardwood and a more open plan. It is helpful to have a local realtor when you are buying or selling a Brownstone as you can’t really compare the newer units to the older units.
These were built by Truman Homes the developer of Rainbow Falls.

Being only 20 minutes from the airport is another great advantage to Chestermere’s location. If you have to travel a lot or work for one of the airlines this is not a bad commute.
Chestermere has a population of near 20,000 people as of 2016. It is a family friendly community with activities for the whole family. We do not yet have a swimming pool as a community cannot afford a pool until it reaches 20,000 people. There is however a recreation centre that has two arenas, 4 sheets of ice for curling and two large gymnasium type rooms and many meeting rooms for different groups to use. Recently the Best Western Hotel opened up and they are allowing the community to use the pool for aquatics programs.
