Salmon River Real Estate & Homes For Sale
The Salmon River neighbourhood is located on Main Street in the Langley Township, just east of the main branch of the Salmon River. While the neighbourhood features some areas that are still more rural than other areas in the township, most of the area has been significantly developed.

Lot sizes are quite large, and homes are lavish and beautiful. Most are single-family homes with between 3 and 8 bedrooms, and all of the finest amenities. The Salmon River neighbourhood is one of the best to invest in, because of the large amount of undeveloped land remaining. As the Township of Langley continues to grow, housing will be in greater demand and property values will rise. The neighbourhood is attractive to investors for that reason, and to families and young professionals for the feeling of rural peace combined with close-by urban amenities and conveniences.
