BLUE BIRD ESTATES is located in peaceful Millet, Alberta, and was designed expertly and purposefully to maximize wetlands connected via perched water tables to the green area to the north and is now a Municipal Reserve. This FOUR SEASONS LUXURY CABIN & Estate Home is only 50 minutes South of Edmonton and is nestled amidst a sheltered reserve, not easily visible from the road making it the ultimate PRIVATE OASIS. This extraordinary and meticulously planned 7.8 acre refuge contains a microcosm of a balanced aquatic ecosystem unlike any other acreage home. Wild life and fish now thrive here, including a huge variety of song birds and water fowl. The owners introduced birdhouses which captured both cliff and barn swallows, which eat their body weight in insects each week and thus act as a natural mosquito control, allowing for relaxed dinners and family gatherings on the dock which hangs over the water. This property is full of awe and wonder, to be enjoyed by your family and generations to come.
THE LOG HOME was designed for luxury living and year-round comfort with vaulted ceilings, open space, fireplace lounging, and every detail celebrates 'Energy Efficiency'. This custom built log home was constructed of 150 year old white spruce with a high thermal mass which allows sunlight to heat the logs in winter time and release it into the house in the evening. Truly a masterpiece home perched on an incredible lake, enjoying the magnificent Alberta skies 365 days a year - or simply enjoy as your recreational home as summer 'Lake House' and 'Winter Get-Away'. During summer, the coolness of the inside restricts the logs transferring heat. Many features to describe as well as being offered 'TURN-KEY' with numerous INCLUSIONS from majority of furniture as well as all equipment (bobcat, mower, solar powered fish feeders etc.) to ensure ease of property transfer and maintenance.

THE PRIVATE LAKE is designed by a Professional Geologist registered in Alberta. The ultimate water surface is 8,800 sq m containing some 48,000 cu meters of water or 11 million Imperial gallons. This 2KM lake also contains three ISLANDS which act as natural and protective shelters for nesting wildlife and fowl; ducks, geese, and foxes to name a few. The lake is a magnet for wildlife as it also offers protection from the elements. The sides of the lake are essentially sands, stabilized with erosion control mats to about 2.4m in depth overlying silty clay deposited by Glacial Lake Edmonton about 9,000 years ago. Stone arrowheads found along the surface sand attest to the fact native Americans camped here several thousands of years ago. The lake is re-stocked each 3-4 years from a hatchery near Rolly View, Alberta. There are rainbow, brook, triploids and about 60 grass carp for weed control weighting up to 15kg. Largest rainbow caught on a fly is 6.5kg. Fresh water shrimp and 6 other species of aquatic animals including snails, leaches, and worms from other Alberta waters were captured and now sustain the lake and food for the fish. Fishing, swimming, paddle boarding and canoeing all summer... snowmobiling, skating, and cross country skiing or snowshoeing all winter. There is nothing like owning your own private lake!
