You don’t have to go far from Vancouver to experience life with a fresh, country-inspired perspective.

Because let’s face it; high-rise buildings start to look the same after a while and you want to get away from the concrete jungle that is the downtown core. But where can you relocate that feels like a million miles from Vancouver, yet it’s only an hour away?

With the perfect balance of urban and natural surroundings, all of the amenities you could possibly need within reach, and stunning residential options that give your family room to grow, it’s no surprise that more people are making the move to Langley.

Here are four reasons to consider making the move yourself.

The convenient location

Willoughby is already renowned as a desirable place to live and its convenient location is one of the reasons why. It’s easy to travel to neighbouring communities or even the US when you live here as major highways are accessible just beyond your doorstep.

Likewise, getting to downtown Vancouver for work is a breeze when you drive or take transit. The Langley Light Rail project is also underway which will provide even more options for connectivity in the city.

Immerse yourself in nature

Remember all those times you wished you were closer to the outdoors? Well, you’ll never have to experience that again when you’re surrounded by nature in Langley. Whether you enjoy running, scenic strolls, golfing, or hiking, you’re sure to find a park that has what you need.

Explore Langley City Park, take the kids to see the duck pond at Nicomekl Park, go play a game of tennis at Langley Meadows Park, go hiking at Campbell Valley Regional Park, or visit Willoughby Community Park or Brae Island Regional Park on your day off.

The plethora of local amenities

After the location, amenities are the next factor to consider before moving to a new area. After all, you don’t want to move somewhere to discover that the nearest store or restaurant is an hour away. Thankfully, that’s not an issue in Langley because every amenity you could need is just minutes away.

Go shopping for new apparel at Willowbrook Mall or Willoughby Town Centre, work out in Steve Nash Fitness, and head to Mattu’s Coffee & Tea for lunch with your favourite person.

There are also schools in the area, from Montessori to high school, and university, so you don’t have to worry about finding somewhere for the kids to transition.

Looking for somewhere to dine out? The Keg Steakhouse & Bar, S&L Kitchen & Bar, Oak & Thorne Public House, Brown’s Socialhouse, are all nearby.

Contemporary West Coast homes

When it comes to buying your first place in the thriving community of Willoughby, you don’t need to look any further than Aristotle. Each unit in the collection of one, two, and three-bedroom homes, is designed to a higher standard of liability with contemporary West Coast architecture and clean, modern interiors.

You’ll also get to make the most of a fitness centre, yoga studio, party room, business centre, games room, an outdoor courtyard with seating and BBQ, an outdoor children’s play area, hobbies room, as well as an outdoor dog wash area for your four-legged friend.

After all, the key to happiness is living somewhere that you look forward to returning home — in Langley, at Aristotle.
