Make the most of the small town pace of life and take a stroll. Wander to the village centre, through the houses to say hi to your neighbours, or down to the lake shore to take in the tranquil view. Six kilometres of boardwalks and walking trails are being added along the lake and through 75 hectares of dedicated nature reserves, so you'll have plenty of beautiful trails to peruse.
Lakeside may be a brand new town but only a five minute drive or 20 minute walk away you'll find Te Kauwhata, a classic, rural Kiwi town with friendly locals and a strong community. Pop in to do your shopping or grab a coffee and a bite to eat.
The Lakeside Village Centre is the hidden gem at the heart of the community, with a gym and childcare centre already up and running, and a new cafe set to open soon. You’ll be able to take in the views over your flat white, while the kids have fun on the playground right next door. It’s a great place to get to know your neighbours and feel the community spirit that Lakeside is all about.
Lakeside offers beautiful, quality homes at a generally more affordable price point than in nearby Auckland. Built by trusted builders with proven track records, there’s a variety of housing styles and plans, so it’s easy to find the right home for your age and stage of life.
