3 developments you need to consider for your next home

From stylish new single-family homes with a legal suite to spacious executive townhomes in a location you’ll love, the West Shore offers real estate opportunities you’ll want to come home to.

Here’s a quick tour of three of the newest on the market, with Jenn Raappana, from the South Island Home team:


Family-friendly solutions

If you’ve been watching local real estate, you’ve likely already heard a lot about Happy Valley’s McCormick Meadows. Headinginto the 30-lot Phase 5, the first 15 lots are scheduled to welcome residents this summer.  

These homes offer ample room for families plus the opportunity to choose your options and finishes with the options coordinator! All the homes in this phase have one and/or two bedroom legal suites, ideal for those wanting a mortgage helper or with parents looking to downsize. With the spacious size of the suite, they’ve even had friends and siblings pool their resources to enter the housing market, Jenn notes. “It’s great value for that location, especially to be able to get in with a suite!”

Visit the McCormick Meadows Presentation Centre from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays at 3505 Honeycrisp Ave. to learn more.


Executive style

Southpoint Ridge is a 68-unit executive-style townhouse project in Langford’s newest neighbourhood, off Bear Mountain Parkway.

Located at the foot of Skirt Mountain, “it’s a beautifully designed new neighborhood with building lots for sale, newly constructed homes and these executive-style townhomes,” Jenn says.

With a brownstone-type design, these spacious homes are ideal for younger professionals or downsizers who still want room to welcome friends and family. Boasting sunny outlooks over Southern Vancouver Island and the Juan de Fuca Strait, all feature three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a tandem garage.

Add to that a convenient location with easy access to shopping, dining and highway access, and it’s easy to see why people are talking about these stylish new homes.

With prices starting at $554,999, including GST, some units are ready for occupancy early spring 2019. Visit the on-site showhome at 1227 Moonstone Loop, off Flint Avenue, Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m.

New to the neighbourhood

Currently under construction in the Selwyn neighbourhood, behind Millstream Village, is the 30-unit Redington Terrace townhomes.

With three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a family room, homebuyers appreciate the bright, spacious floorplans at prices starting at just $524,900, including GST.

“These townhomes are a really great option for those starting out in the market,” Jenn notes.

Families love being in the Millstream Elementary catchment, with its French Immersion option, not to mention the proximity to shopping and recreation. “I think this is going to be a great family-friendly neighbourhood,” she says.

Early buyers will be able to choose their finishes, Jenn notes, inviting interested buyers to contact the South Island Home team to walk through one of the units or review the designs and options available. The showhome is scheduled to be open March 2019.
