Living outside of the city comes with so many perks.
For starters, the fresh air you take in with each breath, less traffic, fewer crowds, shorter lineups, and friendly neighbours who you actually know. Oh, and having the luxury of your own grow things.
Ahhh yes, it’s revitalizing. Not only this, but it’s possible.
Now you can experience the essence of country living at the Gabriola Park in the quaint community of Yorkson, Langley. This series of three and four bedroom cottage-style townhomes are gorgeously surrounded by stretches of vibrant greenery. They offer everything you’d want in a contemporary home – without compromising your desire for a country lifestyle.
To help you see why this development is a place where you’d like to live, we’ve compiled a list of six benefits of buying your dream home here.
When you’re buying your first home you’re going to be doing some serious thinking about the costs, naturally. And although many urban areas are becoming increasingly expensive, Gabriola Park provides affordable and realistic housing prices for families, with three and four-bedroom homes starting at just under $650,000. Yes, seriously.
A prime, convenient location is key for settling in a new area because you’ll be able to access local amenities and transit with ease. You can have this and more at Gabriola Park as the Trans-Canada Highway is blocks away, meaning you can drive to Vancouver in roughly one hour, or take a road trip to Kelowna or a ski resort like Sun Peaks. Living here also means you have easy access to a number of major bus routes which link to SkyTrain stations.
When it comes to contemporary design, this new development will be leading in the interior and exterior stakes. Think bright and spacious, stainless steel kitchen fixtures with marble-looking sanitary quartz-top counters, and an island for having meals with your family. Enjoy fitted cabinets, comfortable living and bedroom areas, plus your own covered BBQ deck where you can fire up a barbecue all year round. And don’t forget about a green lawn where the kids can safely play. Epic.
The neighbourhood has its roots planted firmly in the community which lies next to future Yorkson Park and protected Yorkson Creek – a wonderful outdoor haven and the perfect place for taking a peaceful stroll. You certainly won’t be bored if you live here, since there are tennis courts, golf courses, and more local parks to explore – including the Willoughbly Community Park. Shopping hub Willoughby Town Centre is also just a short stroll away.
Whether you have children now, or if you’re planning to start a family in the near future, it’s helpful to know that there are high-quality education options in the Yorkson area. There’s Willoughby Elementary, Richard Bulpitt Elementary, the Walnut Grove School of Music and Dance, R.E. Mountain School, offering the IB program, as well as a number of other high-caliber schools where the kids can transition or start their education anew.
One thing’s for sure when you’re living at Gabriola Park – you’ll never be stuck when it comes to finding a good restaurant for dinner. The development is close to a wide range of eateries like The Mad Italian Pizza, S+L Kitchen & Bar Langley, Empire Chinese Garden, and Sushico Japanese Restaurant, among many others. You’ll also be living close to Cineplex Cinemas, Golds Gym, Bikram Yoga, and more fitness hubs, so the possibilities are endless when you think about it.
Moving to a brand new area is so much easier when it’s a smooth transition into a wonderful community. For more information and to register for a place of your own at this new development, visit Gabriola Park.
