Time to Retreat to Your Own Slice of Authentic Quebec

May, 2008

Quebec's popularity as a second home destination is growing each year and those tempted to take advantage of this by investing in property in the area should consider 46°North, a stunning new development of three, four and five bedroom architecturally designed luxurious log homes.

The development, set on the edge of Lake Mitchell in 500 acres of wilderness, is designed to offer the perfect year round retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and a true taste of Quebec's nature wilderness. Each high specification home is built using sustainable materials and is set in a generous plot of between one and five acres of private land for each home.

Mr Lang Walker, Executive Chairman of Walker Corporation, developer of 46°North, said: "Visitors to 46°North will be amazed by the sheer beauty of their surroundings; something we were keen to retain during the design and build process. All homes, roads and walkways have been plotted carefully around the existing landscape and this sympathetic approach has enabled us to protect the local forest environment and ensure a private hideaway for each authentic log home.

"The development has great appeal, not only because the homes are very generous in size and built to an extremely high standard in design, construction and decor, but also because East Canada has four distinct seasons, making it a destination that can be enjoyed at any time of the year. We expect our purchasers to experience adventure and authenticity in everything we create – and they certainly want to taste and feel the exotic French Canadian spirit and natural beauty this beautiful site has to offer. It's an exceptional opportunity."

Priced from £251,000 and ranging in size from 2818 sq ft to 4348 sq ft, each beautifully crafted home is nestled within woodland and has been designed to provide residents with a beautiful home, far removed from the stresses of daily life in the UK.

All homes will benefit from spacious living accommodation, double height windows offering views of lake, forest or brooks, a mezzanine floor offering fantastic views of the landscape, a modern fully fitted kitchen, en suite bathrooms, real stone fireplace designed to be the heart of the home, and French doors to a spacious sundeck with terrace for BBQ. Some homes also have garages.

With plenty of activities available at both the site and in the surrounding area, friends and family will be kept well entertained. 46°North will feature an Owner's Lodge offering a range of facilities, a traditional Maple Sugar Shack, swimming pools, spa, tennis courts, boating and around 20 kilometres of wildlife trails. The site is located only five minutes drive from the Parc National du Mont-Tremblant.

Mont Tremblant Resort, located 25 minutes drive from the 46°North development, is known as the most exciting four seasons resort in Eastern North America, offers world class skiing and winter sports facilities, in addition to renowned golf courses and plenty of summer activities. The resort has excellent restaurants, offering a range of international cuisine, as well as a good selection of bars, upmarket boutiques and shops to enjoy.

Travel to 46°North is easy as both Air Canada and BA offer regular low cost direct flights to Montreal Airport and the development is around one and a half hours away from Montreal by car.

Lang Walker, Executive Chairman of Walker Corporation, developer of 46°North, adds: "We've only just released the first collection of log homes and already interest is high. Those seriously considering buying a home overseas should contact our experienced sales team to find out more."

46°North is a joint venture between one of Australia's largest and most experienced property developers, Walker Corporation and the Canadian residential developer AXE Immobilier. Both companies have extensive experience in the new homes market and are working together to create this stunning development.
