Housing in the Coldstream area is varied. Popular master-planned developments, such as Middleton Mountain, provide newly-built single family and multi-unit homes, as well as small estate acreages. Mature neighbourhoods lie nearer to the lake and offer older homes on large lots, or vintage lake cottages. Many properties have scenic views, and most housing appeals to the single-family market or those wanting rural farmland. Despite its proximity to the city, the Coldstream municipality is nestled in an exquisite natural setting, with protected wildlife areas and forests, making it feel a world away.
