With a strong spirit of community and a naturally inspired ambiance that's easy to embrace, The Slopes of Sylvan Lake is a quiet, restorative sanctuary that celebrates the energetic spirit of the lake it overlooks.
Just as they represent a thoughtful response to the beauty of the setting, The Slopes' refined Architectural Guidelines were carefully crafted to maintain the community's aesthetic appeal and cohesiveness while accommodating the individual expression that will give The Slopes of Sylvan Lake its one-of-a-kind character.

To help create and sustain this distinctive spirit of place, Belterra has chosen four architectural styles for this exquisite new community.

Architectural Styles
French Country Style
Historically, French Country dwellings were working rural buildings whose massing and planning were somewhat informal. Often clustered around courtyards and stable yards, they formed a picturesque impression of casual elegance and refined style. Steeper pitched hip roof forms, multiple front gables, dormers, distinctive chimneys and prominent entry porches are telltale characteristics of a French Country home.
Arts & Crafts Style
The Arts & Crafts movement began in Britain in the late 1800s with artist, poet, and social reformer William Morris, who envisioned a return to the sanctuary of hand-hewn craftsmanship in response to the ornate opulence and the industrial dehumanization of the Victorian Era. Morris favoured simplicity, quality and intelligent design, and the overall aesthetic is hand-hewn, functional and beautifully simple.
Craftsman Style
The distinguishing characteristics of this style include moderate pitched roofs with dormers, covered front verandas, decorative beams or braces, and traditional building materials in deep, rich colours. Masonry is essential to this style, though it is typically used as a base element to ground the home and create a sense of stability.
Ranch Style
While ranch-style homes are defined by form - spacious structures with low-pitch roofs, large windows, open floor plans and sunny patios - the spirit of the ranch home is all about function. It's a place to come home to after a long day of adventures...a place where friends and family reconvene to celebrate the beauty of the landscape that surrounds them.
