August statistics revealed that home sales in the eastern and southern ends of the Lower Mainland increased to the second-highest level they’ve reached in 20 years.
City life, particularly during a pandemic, is growing less appealing for those who want access to undisturbed nature. Destinations like Squamish along the Sea to Sky corridor are now becoming a popular choice for Metro Vancouverites, offering an idyllic lifestyle.
SEAandSKY, a 53-acre master-planned community by BlueSky Properties in partnership with Kingswood, began selling in June of 2019. The first phase completely sold out, and homeowners recently moved in.
SEAandSKY offers two- and three-bedroom family-sized townhomes — starting from $709,900 — and affords you the opportunity for more space, more nature, and more balance.
It takes approximately 40 minutes to drive from Squamish to downtown Vancouver (along one of the most scenic routes in the province), meaning prospective residents don’t have to give up their work in the city. The base of Whistler is also the same distance away from SEAandSKY.
Squamish is a town hardwired for year-round adventure, situated on the doorstep of world-class terrain with breathtaking views from winding trails and calm waters. Locals can take full advantage of hiking up the Stawamus Chief during summer months and exploring the backcountry in winter.
Settling in is made easier with the destination’s strong community for everyone who appreciates the outdoors: from hikers to rock climbers, to mountain bikers, kiteboarders, paddleboarders, fishing enthusiasts, and more.
Beyond the wilderness, there’s plenty to discover in the town with quaint boutiques, shops, and eateries. The Salted Vine Kitchen + Bar, Howe Sound Brew Pub & Firebread Restaurant, Cloudburst Café, and Narwhals Ice Cream are just a few of the local gems.
Living in Squamish creates the opportunity for a unique sense of balance, which SEAandSKY amplifies with its location along the waterfront.
From here, prospective residents will be connected to downtown Squamish by a future pedestrian bridge being backed by BlueSky and Kingswood. Additionally, a recently constructed overpass has been designed with locals in mind, bridging Highway 99 and Clarke Drive.
Upon project completion, over two kilometres of multi-purpose trails and nine acres of lush park space will connect the SEAandSKY community, further adding to the majestic mountainous backdrop of Squamish.
Convenient retail and service units are slated for the community, along with a 17,000 sq ft Amenity Centre. The hub will provide a space for neighbours to connect with a social lounge, outdoor pool, sports court, rock-climbing gym, and more.
Located in the heart of a well-thought-out development project, phase 2 SEAandSKY homes offer room for residents to grow with floor plans ranging from 1,199 sq ft to 1,785 sq ft.
Key features of Scandinavian architecture are among the main inspirations for the modern and timeless design of each home. Picture airy, open-plan living with nine ft ceilings on the main floor, expansive windows to allow natural light inside, and tranquil outdoor spaces.
Future SEAandSKY residents can channel their culinary creativity in gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances. And since most of the two- and three-bedroom homes have dens that double as dedicated workspaces, homeowners can focus on the tasks that matter with each workday.
Ample storage inside each home and within spacious garages means there’s a great deal of room to store the whole family’s adventure gear.
SEAandSKY offers a subtle sense of luxury living while staying true to the roots of Squamish. In essence, the master-planned community is a product of 60 years of multi-generational home and community building experience.
If you can already picture what your life would look like as a SEAandSKY resident, now could be the time to make the leap and move north of Vancouver.
