Fort Langley can feel like a historic enclave in the middle of the otherwise-bustling Lower Mainland. Local builder Lanstone Homes is contributing to that feeling with McBride Station, an exclusive collection of townhomes that has found inspiration in the past.
“This is your chance to own a piece of history,” says Michelle Taylor, director of marketing for Frontline Real Estate Services. “This is going to be one of the last opportunities to own new product in Fort Langley.”
McBride Station is located on land that was once owned by Charles Edward Hope, one of Fort Langley’s first pioneers.
The 52 townhomes are inspired by four of Fort Langley’s heritage buildings: The Hope House, The Carriage House, The Station House and The Marr House. The original heritage Carriage House is located right beside McBride Station, and The Marr House and The Station House are close by.
The homes range from approximately 1,150 to over 3,000 square feet, in five different master-on-main or traditional floorplans.
“They feel like a single-family home,” Taylor says. “There’s nothing cookie-cutter about them.”
The exteriors have tons of curb appeal, with twelve different colour schemes to choose from, a double-car garage and a fully fenced backyard with a covered paver stone patio.
Inside, engineered hardwood and nine-foot ceilings throughout the main floor welcome you home. Coffered living room ceilings and large windows contribute to the spacious feeling, and every home has a full in-ground basement.
The kitchens feature stainless-steel appliances complemented by quartz countertops, a marble mosaic tile backsplash and designer cabinetry, as well as a designer lighting package with island pendants, under-cabinet puck lighting, dining chandelier and recessed ceiling lighting.
Relaxing bathrooms have tile floors (with a heated mosaic floor in the ensuite), quartzite countertops and polished chrome fixtures. The master ensuite also has a large shower with frameless glass and a separate soaker tub in some homes.
On-site, homeowners will have access to a large greenhouse and garden plots with a fire pit and playground, and plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation on the McBride Station Trail that connects to the Fort to Fort Trail.
Shopping at several local boutiques is just moments away, as well as restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, golf courses, and several other heritage sites.
The homes at McBride Station have been extremely popular already.
“Ninety per cent of the first release sold out in seven days,” says Taylor.
Lanstone will celebrate the grand opening of the show home on May 24, as well as the release of the final phase of homes. Pre-registration for VIP access is recommended.
