Timberlands Lots

Single Detached, Carriage Home and Wide-Shallow lots are available for purchase.
Lot Types
Learn about the different lot types offered in Timberlands.

Single Detached Lots (R1)

The single detached residential offers single-family units on well-proportioned lots. These units are generally two storeys with a garage accessed from the street. The house is set back a short distance from the property line (min 3 m, max 4.5 m), with the garage set back a minimum of 6 metres.

Carriage Homes (R1C)

Carriage homes offer a detached garage accessed from the rear lane, with a self- contained secondary dwelling unit located on the second level. Each home will have a small private rear yard between the main house and the detached garage. The main residence will also allow for an attached garage in addition to the rear detached garage.

The secondary unit can provide space above for extended family members or act as a rental property for the homeowner in the principal residence. The carriage house will be required to provide an off-street parking space for the resident.

Note: building a Carriage House on a Carriage House Lot is optional

Wide-Shallow Lots (R1WS)

As the name suggests, Wide-Shallow lots are wider in width and shallower in depth than traditional lots. This allows for homes that are closer to the street and offer a more engaging design for both homeowners and passersby. The design allows for features such as larger living areas, shorter hallways, wider backyards, larger entrances and windows, and garages integrated in to the house’s facade.
