Default Tamarack HMB

Dropped by few days ago to see the semis and townhouses at Tamarack HMB, very nice area. We are thinking to buy a semi there. Before we do so, just wondering what do you think about this community? The community is very close to the river, is this considered in the flood zone? How are the schools around there, English public elementary? After school programs? Any feedback would be appreciated!

Hi there!!

We bought a semi there too!

According to their site plan, the 100-year flood line is the line of trees behind the model homes on the edge of the park. We are across the street from the models, and all other available units are further from the river from us.

I really like the idea of the conservation area being right there. No matter how much Barhaven grows, we will always have that.

I'm not sure about schools, but there are plenty of schools in Barhaven (with a new elementary and high school planned for Greenbank and Cambrian - next to where the sportsplex will be.

The best thing is to call the School Board. http://www.ocdsb.ca/Pages/default.aspx

The Website tells me that based on our address, they would go to Barhaven Public School:

School Barrhaven PS
Principal Sandra Richardson
Address 80 Larkin Dr, Nepean, ON, Canada
Postal Code K2J 1B7
Phone (613) 825-2691
Fax (613) 825-9307

I wish I could tell you more, but my friend's kids go to French Catholic.

I'm really excited about moving to the area, though!

Thank you Yume for your info. We still thinking about it, really love the river and parkland, not really crazy about the semi's exterior design. I guess nothing is perfect right!

I'm not too fond of the exterior of the model semis they have there, but the Lakewood/Folkstone and the Kingswood have more personality, I think.

It's going to be my first time living in a semi, so I don't know if you can hear your neighbours a lot. They do have a fire barrier between the homes, so that should help. I live in an apartment right now and I only really hear people when they are in the hallway.

You'll love the neighborhood! Everyone is just fantastic, we've been living here for 3 months and couldn't be more pleased!

And Yume to answer your question about hearing the neighbors...we haven't heard ours yet, the only time was when they were doing the 30 day fixes and we heard a couple of sounds from the contractors fixing things....but other than that not a peep :-) We are really happy with our home, I'm sure you'll love yours too!

We are super excited! We've been going down every weekend to take pictures.

I started waving at people as they drive by. Our future neighbours...
