The one neighbourhood that's going to redefine North Shore living

Nov 16 2017, 2:04 am

It’s time, you’re ready to settle into a new area.

You’ve done the whole renting in the Tri-Cities thing and you know you want to live in Vancouver. You want those mountain views and hiking trails right outside your door, as well as the ease of accessing the downtown core – without compromise.

You’re seeking the ultimate West Coast home that’s inspired by Vancouver’s natural lifestyle – a home that is somewhere tucked away in a tranquil neighbourhood with a community atmosphere, and an abundance of scenic trails at your fingertips.

And that’s exactly what’s in store for you at the new development coming to North Vancouver – Creston.

Creston marks the inaugural North Shore community by award-winning Pennyfarthing Homes, a local development firm with a 36-year legacy and a portfolio of over 3,500 homes built to-date. The development will be home to 52 modern one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. And one of those could be your dream home.

To help you see why, we’ve compiled a list of six things that come with living at Creston.


When you’re buying your first home, location is key. You want to invest in a property within close proximity to a bustling hub where you’ll find plenty of stores and restaurants.

That’s what Creston is all about.

It’s located at Bewicke Avenue and 15th Street, just minutes from Lower Lonsdale and Marine Drive. Its central location is ideal for family-friendly living, and it’s close to plenty of transit options. Plus, it takes just 20 minutes to drive to downtown Vancouver from here. Epic.

Outdoor Activities

Moving to this quaint North Shore neighbourhood means you’ll have a wealth of outdoor activities at your fingertips as well as the charm of a walkable lifestyle. You can take advantage of the many parks and trails of Mosquito Creek and the Spirit Trail, which are only steps from your door.

Grouse Mountain and Lynn Canyon are also in your backyard, making life here both convenient and enriching.

The Building

Creston’s design, by North Vancouver’s notable Shift Architecture, has been influenced by the natural beauty of the area, to further compliment the community.

The building is C-shaped, creating a beautiful courtyard with a harvest table and a children’s play area. This means every unit will have outdoor views. Timber columns help blend the building into its lush surroundings, and wood- like sofits (under arches) on balconies and roof overhangs elevate the stunning design of the building.

Local Developer

Okay so we just mentioned the views, but this feature will make you want to move into a home at this development almost as soon as you view it.

Living at Creston allows you to take daily pleasures in the beauty and serenity that surrounds you on the North Shore as there are few places that compare to its natural beauty. And it’s all coming together because of local developer Pennyfarthing Homes.

Interior Design

Home interiors/Creston

If you’re looking for something different in your first home, then Creston could have the answer.

Firstly, there are a variety of different home layouts and unit types to meet your wants and needs, designed by Portico Design Group. The interiors of the homes are defined by their modern designs, offering open-concept living, warm palettes, and timeless style.

Living here means you can relax when you come home after a long day, surrounded by warm and bright interiors, with natural stone and warm woods throughout. Plus, you’ll even have the choice of two colour schemes.

Design Extras

Attention to detail is the fundamental element of Creston home designs, especially when it comes to their amenity spaces. There’s a commercial space on the street level. Outdoor, there’s a communal harvest table and children’s play area, and indoor there’s a kitchen, complete with a lounge area. Oh, and this lounge even opens onto the shared patio space for easy entertaining. Amazing.
