Despite its challenges, this year has shown us all the importance of two things: comfortable living and safe community.
In Fleetwood, Surrey, there’s a development underway that marries these two elements. Developed by Anthem, Wood & Water offers 265 townhomes and duplexes with Prairie-style architecture, a boutique rental building, a retail space, and a daycare built across 16 acres — with five acres of dedicated parkland.
Registration is open now for Phase 1 with 16 duplexes and 59 townhomes. Now that you’ve been introduced, here are some of the many reasons why Wood & Water is the ideal place for any Vancouverite to put down roots.
First, the location of this collection of homes is unique in that it’s set on gently sloping parkland surrounded by golf courses. For residents, this means unrivalled access to nature just beyond their doorstep. New trails enhance the pre-existing pathways woven throughout the neighbourhood, making it effortless to go for an evening stroll or bike ride.
Wood & Water has integrated Fleetwood’s natural Coyote Creek into the design of the community, while respecting the landscape and complementing the surrounding green areas. Residents will have ample choice when it comes to local parks with Fleetwood Park, Morningside Park, Sequoia Ridge Park, Chimney Hill Park, and Surrey Lake Park all nearby. Those with a furry friend can also enjoy quick access to Freedom Dog Park.
Another popular spot in the area is Bear Creek Train Park and Mini Golf. It’s closed temporarily right now, but when it reopens, the whole family can spend the afternoon there playing a round of mini-golf. The picturesque Northview Golf and Country Club and Guildford Golf Course are a short drive away, as well as Eaglequest Golf adjacent to Wood & Water, where you can practice your swing.
Furthermore, when it comes to shopping for everyday essentials, those living at Wood & Water won’t need to travel far from home. Safeway, Save-On-Foods, Fresh St. Market, Costco, Shoppers Drug Mart, Real Canadian Superstore, and Canadian Tire are located close by, where you can pick up everything you need for your home.
Grabbing coffee to-go or enjoying a cold brew al fresco with a friend are among life’s little pleasures. In Fleetwood, locals have Starbucks and Tim Hortons at their fingertips. Then, for some post-coffee shopping, there’s the nearby Guildford Town Centre, Newton Town Centre, and King’s Cross Shopping Centre.
Meeting friends closer to home is another option as Wood & Water has a residents-only clubhouse, named ‘The Treehouse,’ located at the heart of the community. The Treehouse offers 5,019 sq ft of indoor and outdoor amenity space, which will be a hub where neighbours can get to know each other by name. Residents will have access to everything from a health studio to a movie theatre, a multi-purpose room, a games room, an entertainment kitchen, and even a fireside lounge.
The Treehouse’s indoor amenity space covers over 4,000 sq ft. Meanwhile, the 528 sq ft outdoor terrace with a BBQ area allows for seamless indoor and outdoor entertaining year-round. Having this private clubhouse on your doorstep allows you to socialize in a safe space and recreate the restaurant experience at home.
When Wood & Water is complete, there will be more than 1,000 trees on-site, adding to the area’s natural feel. In Phase 1, the two-level duplexes available include four-bedroom and four-bedroom plus den options, ranging from 1,651 sq ft to 1,740 sq ft. On the main level, each duplex has a modern, airy kitchen (that leads out to a patio) and a spacious dining area where all the family can hang out.
There’s a space that can be used as a home office on this level, a bedroom, a spa-like bathroom, as well as a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and an ensuite. On the first floor below, duplex homeowners have a fourth bedroom with a full bathroom, a space that can be used as a man cave or office should you desire, a dedicated area for laundry, and also a garage that has enough space for two cars.
The available three-level townhomes range from two-bedroom plus den to four-bedroom plus den options, sized from 1,251 sq ft to 1,680 sq ft. Inside the homes, on the upper level, there’s a master bedroom with a walk-in closet and room for a reading nook. Homeowners can also expect an ensuite with stylish porcelain side-by-side sinks positioned between the two bedrooms on this level.
On the main level, the home has a gorgeous, bright, and spacious open-plan kitchen with soft close cabinetry and a full-height pantry closet. This opens up to the living area, which leads to the outdoor deck. Every townhome at Wood & Water has a private deck — somewhere residents can start or end their day with a book in hand. On the ground level, there’s a den and powder room, a garage that could also be used as a workshop, and a personal driveway.
The homes at Wood & Water come in two designer colour schemes and have nine ft ceilings on the main levels, giving residents more room to breathe and appreciate their surroundings.
