Only 6 Homes Remain

September 8th, 2011

There are only 6 homes available – including a Display Home – at Highland Park. Once they are sold, the neighbourhood will be complete, and your chance to own a brand new home in this established neighbourhood will be gone.

Available homes at Highland Park include three bedroom plans from $402,900, and three bedroom plus family room from $437,900.

Not just a home, but a community… and a club

Located in Morgan Heights, Highland Park really is the kind of neighbourhood you want to live in. It’s close to every convenience with restaurants, shopping and services within an easy stroll. And, there’s also an abundance of green space with trails and golf courses nearby.

Owning at Highland Park not only means that you get a great home in a great community. There’s also The Club – a private clubhouse facility for the exclusive use of residents. There’s an outdoor pool, a weight room, a yoga studio, billiards table, movie theatre and an indoor floor hockey rink. Something for everyone. 

Hurry in before these homes are gone.

Summer time at Highland Park

August 11th, 2011

The Summer weather has finally arrived, and with the warmer weather, people are anxious to enjoy some sunshine alongside the pool or even the beach.  Highland Park  is the perfect place to be and is close to both White Rock  Beach and Crescent Beach.

White Rock is known for its sandy beaches, beautiful sunsets, great weather and of course, the 1,500 feet long pier.  While Crescent Beach offers a more rustic, natural feel with a graveled seaside promenade, quaint seaside homes and some great bistros.

If it’s a pool you’re after, Highland Park features a fantastic Club with an outdoor pool where you can relax or do a few laps.

Homes at Highland Park are flying out the door.  With our final phase being released this past weekend, we now have only 8 homes remaining.  We have some great 3 bedroom homes available including our Display Homes, but not for long.

Do not miss out on your final chance to be one of the lucky purchasers to own a home at Highland Park.

Our Sales Team Talks About the Community

March 11th, 2011

Our sales team can’t quite get over how rapidly the area around Glenmore and Highland Park has transformed into a vibrant and accessible neighbourhood.

Connie, one of our sales representatives at Glenmore, recently returned from her maternity leave, and she was quite struck by the community’s development in the past year: “Everything is so close by and accessible. It’s like being downtown, but it’s much more peaceful.”

Amanda and Victoria, sales representatives from Glenmore and Highland Park respectively, are equally taken by the area’s urban vibe.

“When I think back to 2008 when I first started working out here, I am absolutely amazed as to the amount of development, both commercial and residential,” comments Victoria. “This area has not only developed, but has been transformed into a beautiful community, rich with amenities, home and shopping.”

“With the amount stores and amenities nearby, it’s become the suburbia Yaletown,” remarks Amanda.

The feedback our team has received from potential homeowners like you has been overwhelmingly positive as well.

People continue to comment that they really appreciate the fact that they can walk across the street and get a cup of coffee. And still have access to wonderful schools and beautiful parkways.

Then there are, of course, the homes.

We’re pretty fond of the two-bedroom plus den homes now available at Glenmore They’re in a great location and have spacious yards. And clearly you are too, only a handful remains.

The three-bedroom B1 plan at Highland Park has also been much admired. The open-concept layout and vaulted ceilings create a spacious, single-family home feel. And the master ensuite features a full five-piece bathroom.

Most of all, you appreciate the fact that our finishings are a representation of the area itself – a blend of “traditional living with a modern twist.” Thanks for noticing.

It is something about the area that captivated us right away, and prompted us to move on this location.

Keep checking in, we will continue to keep you up-to-date about this burgeoning community. And our sales team is always available to chat about the neighbourhood.

Looking to Hit the Slopes? Here Are Our Top 3 Mountain Destinations

March 4th, 2011


It’s time to take advantage of the incredible weather we’ve been having, and hit the mountains—a relatively easy weekend getaway considering, Glenmore and Highland Park’s location.

From Baker to Whistler and skiing to tobogganing, here are some of the best slopes to hit for the entire family.

Mt Baker
Escaping for a ski-filled weekend couldn’t be easier at Glenmore and Highland Park. A half hour drive will have you in Bellingham ready to rock those slopes, depending on the border lineup, of course.

Top-notch skiers and boarders will love the fact that Baker offers premium rentals. Along with beginner to intermediate level rentals available at upper Heather Meadows, top-of-the-line skis and snowboards – including this year’s current models – are available at the lower White Salmon base area (mile marker 52) on all operation days.

Whistler Blackcomb
From Glenmore and Highland Park, BC’s mountain jewel WhistlerBlackcomb is more of a trek, but it’s well worth it to check out the world record-breaking Peak 2 Peak Gondola. An approximate two-and-a-half hour drive will bring you into the village where you can get settled before you get up-close-and-personal with the mountains from the Peak 2 Peak. This engineering marvel breaks three world records:

  • Longest unsupported span of 3.024 kilometres
  • Highest lift of its kind at 436 metres above the valley floor
  • Completes the longest continuous lift system on the globe

Even better, March is family month, so there are opportunities for kids to stay, ski and rent for free.

Cypress Mountain
A must for the young and the young at heart. The North Shore’s Cypress Mountain is home to one of the best Snow Tube Parks in the Lower Mainland, and it’s only an hour and a half from Glenmore and Highland Park.

Feel the thrill of sliding down chutes in a snow tube and let Cypress’s tube tow do all the work getting you back up the slope. It makes for a great day trip too, if a full weekend is out of the question.

Five Advantages of Townhome Living

February 24th, 2011

Simply put, townhomes are a great alternative to single-family homes. Here are just five of the benefits that might make choosing a home at Glenmore or Highland Park the perfect option for you.

The Club

Imagine lying out by a sun-drenched outdoor pool – take a dip at your leisure. Or waking up each morning and hitting the fitness room for a bit of cardio. Feel like a game of pool with the boys? No problem, invite them around for a crack at the billiards table. Living at Glenmore and Highland Park affords the opportunity to be part of a community, and its community amenities in the form of The Club. It’s private club facilities with backyard convenience.

Less Exterior Maintenance
The amount of exterior maintenance on a townhome is often drastically reduced simply because there is a dwelling on one or more sides of the home. Tending to the siding on just the front and back of your home can save a lot of time and money, which means more time to spend with family and friends. And with a few more pennies in your pocket, you might even be able to spend some of that time saved away on vacation!

Affordability
Speaking of pennies… Choosing to purchase a townhome definitely affords you more house for your money. Our two-bedroom plus den homes at Glenmore are starting at just $338,900*. Our efficient use of space gives you the most square footage possible. You’ll be hard pressed to find a single-family home with similar square footage for that price near this vibrant neighbourhood.

Spacious Layouts
With two floors of living space, plus a full garage with storage, the townhomes at Glenmore and Highland Park afford plenty of room for you to not just live, but live well. Enter your home through your own front door. Throw a dinner party, and have room for a full dining table. Let guests mingle in the living room while you prepare the appies – the open-concept floorplan is ideal for entertaining. There’s even a powder room on the main floor, so guests can have the opportunity freshen up.

Outdoor Living
Of course, the chance to get outside and enjoy your own yard has to be one of the more compelling reasons for townhome living. In the spring months, take to the soil and tackle a manageable plot of land to plant your spring bulbs. When summer arrives, you can look forward to pulling out the barbeque and a lawn chair or two for a summer feast. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

Merge the conveniences of a single-family home and condo living at Glenmore and Highland Park.

Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions on Track

February 18th, 2011

We’re already a month-and-a-half into 2011. And a lot of us on the Glenmore and Highland Park team have noticed that we are already giving up on our New Year’s resolutions. Life just seems to get in the way, and boy is it tempting to push those goals aside – as guilt-ridden as we may feel – with the simple thought: “There is always next year…”

Fight the temptation!

Now, is the perfect time to reassess your goals, and reward yourself for hitting a milestone, so you can keep on track with those resolutions.

Narrow Your Focus
Having to focus mental energy into five different things is a lot harder than focusing on one task. What do you value most? Let the less important resolutions fall to the wayside.

Revisit and Revise
Now that you have a more acute focus, take some time out to reflect on what you think you can realistically achieve. There is nothing wrong with revising your goals to make them more attainable, and so that they suit your actual needs and desires.

Go Bite-Sized
Small bite-sized goals are achievable. Long-term goals can seem overwhelming.  Stopping to analyze your resolutions now is ideal. You can see where you came from, where you are going and where you’d like to be.

A Friendly Reminder
Remind yourself why you set these goals in the first place. Write down your goal, why you want to achieve it, and read it each morning. Keep your friends in the loop too. They can provide invaluable support.

Coming into a new year, it’s easy to jump on the New Year’s resolution bandwagon and valiantly go forth with the notion that you will rid yourself of all vices. Now it’s time to be realistic, and determine what is truly important to you.

Love is in the Air. We Know Where to Go for a Romantic Night Out in South Surrey

February 11th, 2011

Valentines in Surrey

Valentine’s Day. A Hallmark holiday or simply a chance to show that special
someone they really do mean the world to you? Dub us hopeless romantics, but
we’ll go for the latter. Beautiful floral bouquets, softly spoken “I love yous,” intimate
dinners for two – our hearts are a fluttering already…

And in our push for romance, we’ve come up with the perfect lineup of restaurants
around Glenmore and Highland Park destined to set the sparks flying between you
and your sweetheart any night of the week.

It’s amore.
Don Quixote you may not be, but we think you’ll come pretty darn close wining and
dining your sweetheart at White Rock’s Pearl on the Rock. Chef Jeremy Keighley
continues his culinary celebration of life on the coast, preparing stirring, passionate
dishes that connect both land and sea. Couple that with a striking view overlooking
Semiahmoo Bay, and we think you’re set for a night of amore.

Relaxed and refined.
Sometimes a vibrant room filled with an eclectic group of people is all you’re looking
for to guarantee a great night out. Laughter is, after all, one of the best aphrodisiacs,
and it’s nice to feel at ease in an open environment where you can laugh out loud.
Try sipping on a few lively libations at U Lounge – walking distance from Glenmore and Highland Park – to get those romantic juices flowing.

Try something new.
The trepidation of trying something new is sometimes the ultimate way to bring
two people together. So why not test your palate and create some new memories at
Senses Fusion Cuisine on Marine Drive? It’s only short drive or cab from Glenmore
and Highland Park. The menu is laid out tapas-style, so you can cuddle up extra-cozy
and share as many dishes that take your fancy. Cupid will be happy, to be sure.

Mood setter.
There’s nothing quite like the combination of a glass of wine and the sound of
someone tickling the ivories to get you in the mood. Which is why we love the
idea of heading to The Hazelemere Dining Room at Hazelmere Golf Course for Valentine’s Day. House pianist Josef Kaliostro takes to the piano every night at 6 p.m.
to serenade guests as they dine.

Feel Calm and Confident Buying a Home in the Year of the Rabbit

February 4th, 2011

Like the zodiac signs in Western astrology, the animals of Chinese astrology are thought to dictate personality traits and affect world events in the year they rule. So as we leave the Year of the Tiger and transition into the Year of the Rabbit, we think it only makes sense to consider the year ahead and see what the Chinese zodiac for 2011 has in store for us.

For those looking to purchase a new home at Glenmore or Highland Park, the coming year looks positive indeed. Here’s why:

The Year of the Rabbit means a calmer year of comfort and reflection, compared to the past years of excitement. This is a year meant for indulging in the comforts of home.

2011 is a time for rational and thoughtful decisions to be made, which means you can feel confident that once you’ve made a decision about a home, it will be the right one.

According to Holiday Spot’s Chinese Zodiac, in the Year of the Rabbit “we will act with discretion and make reasonable concessions without too much difficulty.” We will know what amenities and features are truly important to us, and we will recognize when we are being excessive.

It’s also a year traditionally associated with home and family, artistic pursuits, diplomacy and keeping the peace. And that’s excellent news for those in the home buying market. 2011 will be the year to find a home well suited to everyone in your family, at a time when your keen eye for colour and accessories will be eager to take hold.

And if you were fortunate enough to have been born in the Year of the Rabbit, that home buying decision looks even better. “The Rabbit is extremely lucky in business and monetary transactions. Astute at striking bargains, he can always pop up with a suitable proposal or alternative to benefit himself.”

From the team at Glenmore and Highland Park, here’s wishing you and your family a year of health and prosperity.
