Haven on the Trent: The Perfect Setting for Peaceful Living

Looking to make the jump from city living to country landscapes? Many are heading toward Cottage Country in search of peace and relaxation. There is a certain appeal to a country setting, with the peace of living in a forest, but many of us still need conveniences like municipal water and sewers with local services and providers, which can be tricky to find in a rural setting.

Picture a custom community, built to suit the nature that encompasses it; now imagine your dream home built on a prestigious lot that fronts on to the majestic Trent – Severn Waterway – this is Haven on the Trent. A tranquil setting with breathtaking views, surrounded by forest and located in beautiful Campbellford, Ontario, Haven is the change of pace you seek.

Haven on the Trent is an exclusive waterfront community offering unique key lot concepts, brought to you by Sifton Properties, a company based out of London, Ontario for over 95 years. The deliberate design of these key lots permits an increase in the number of houses with waterfront, while preserving the tranquility between homes. Each building lot uniquely curves to the natural landscape of the property, and architectural building guidelines ensure a cohesive cooperation between land and structure, creating a community with striking character and long-lasting value.

The exclusive Haven on the Trent community includes a 4-acre park along the Trent River offering sprawling views of Ferris Provincial Park. The park grounds also include an impressive looping trail, as well as a sheltered gathering space made for picnicking. If hiking is more to your interest, trails found throughout the community connect to Seymour Conservation Area where your next journey awaits you. With a serene natural setting at your doorstep, Haven is the perfect setting for the active outdoor enthusiast.

Haven on the Trent, conveniently located along the Trent River in Campbellford, allows residents to walk or ride their bikes to visit the charming downtown. There you will find a thriving arts community, and many one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants. A hospital, farmers market, craft brewery as well as gas and grocery shops offer residents of Haven on the Trent integral services, accompanied by a warmth and hospitality only a small town can offer.

The Haven community is a desired retreat for families, retirees and folks looking to embrace cottage living. Their gorgeous model home is now open for viewing Thursdays to Mondays 11am–5pm at 3 Riverside Trail, Campbellford.
