Redekop Kroeker Development Inc. is rising to the occasion with Varsity, a four-building development in Langley that's definitely at the top of its class.
"There's a really nice sense of community here," says project manager Mimi Chen, adding, "The features are fantastic; it's an amazing value."
The two-bedroom condominiums at Varsity are spacious and open, ranging from approximately 840 to 1,090 square feet. RKDI will release the final building for sale later this year, while buyers in the current buildings are able to move in immediately.
The interiors can easily be called exquisite, with oversized windows, wide-plank laminate flooring in the entry, kitchen and living area, and two designer colour schemes to choose between, Cambridge (light) and Oxford (dark).
The kitchen will suit any aspiring gourmet, with granite countertops complemented by alder shaker frame-and-panel-door cabinetry and a ceramic tile backsplash. Under-cabinet puck lighting and stainless-steel appliances are two other beautiful details in the kitchen.
"These kitchens feel like they're in a house," says Chen. "You can cook without bumping elbows with someone else; there are no compromises here."
The bathrooms are soothing and spacious, with rich marble countertops (granite in the ensuite), ceramic floor tile accented by an antique white tub surround and shaker frame-and-panel-door cabinetry. In a masterstroke of convenience, the bathrooms feature motion sensor under-cabinet lighting.
There are other details at Varsity that are proving popular.
"People love the gas connection on the balcony for a barbecue," Chen says. "If you're downsizing, you're not going to lose anything. That's a big thing for people."
Part of the appeal of Varsity is its convenient location. It's within walking distance to everything you'll need, from shopping and dining to schools to leisure and recreation. Homeowners will also be close to the new Golden Ears Bridge, making commuting easy.
"We got a walk score of 77 at Varsity," says Chen. "That's unusual for Langley, where you often have to take a car to everything. Even though it's close to everything, it's very quiet as the buildings are set back from the street."
Varsity is bordered by two protected green spaces, lending a natural feel to the project that adds to that quiet and calm feeling when arriving home.
"Where else can you get a two-bedroom home for this price, beside green space, and in this location?" asks Chen. "It's a no-brainer."
Two-bedroom homes at Varsity start at $229,800. For more information visit www.liveatvarsity.com, call 604-539-2200 or stop by the sales centre at 20068 Fraser Highway, Langley to see the two new display homes.
