When newlyweds Geoff and Jennifer Blighton went house-hunting, they knew exactly what they were looking for.

“The most space and amenities at the lowest price, without sacrificing quality,” Geoff says.

The couple found that in a three-bedroom end-of-row townhouse at the Kaleden new-home project in south Surrey.

There was plenty about the Kaleden townhome, one of 185 from developer Polygon, that appealed to the pair.

“The open floor plans, the ‘second home’ Evergreen Club, and the proximity to Grandview Corner combined to offer us a very appealing package,” says Geoff, who, like Jennifer, works nearby.

Another Kaleden attraction was Polygon’s reputation, Geoff says. “My sister and brother-in-law have owned a Polygon townhome and they had nothing but good things to say about their product and the customer service they offer.”

Looking down the road, Jennifer says: “We lightly considered resale value, as we knew that this would one day be a stepping stone to a single-family house. Polygon’s reputation, the awesome location, coupled with a widely appealing layout makes Kaleden easy to pitch to a second buyer.”

Resale aside, Kaleden represents townhouse residency that offers convenience, green building credentials, green space and the Evergreen Club, an on-site 7,500-square-foot private community centre with a swimming pool and hot tub.

Major freeways and White Rock’s ocean beaches are near the homes, 40 of which were still available for sale last week.

The Evergreen Club is shared with a Polygon development across the street — Cathedral Grove — and the club’s concierge helps organize a host of community events.

Entering the Evergreen Club, you’re greeted by a welcoming glass fireplace and sitting area/lounge. Bring a DVD to enjoy a private screening in the theatre, complete with a 110-inch LCD high-def projector screen. Hunker down in the comfy theatre and enjoy the show.

On the lower floor, there’s a birthday room for hosting special family events, a table tennis room and an indoor hockey arena, complete with nets, sticks and balls.

The fitness centre is equipped with treadmills, freeweights and exercise balls. Shower and change room facilities are right across the lobby; just grab your gym bag from home and go. Not up for a workout? Relax in the lounge area, or “rack up” at the pool table.

Polygon has four immaculately detailed showhomes on the Kaleden property right now that provide some wonderful decorating ideas and give prospects some ideas on how to personalize their purchases.

It’s interesting to note how quickly design elements from more expensive homes reach less expensive ones. For example, in Kaleden’s kitchens both the built-in refrigerator and dishwasher are faced in kitchen cabinetry-panelling.

Oversized pot drawers pull out smoothly and provide plenty of storage space. Granite countertops look attractive and are easy to clean, and you can select an optional granite-topped kitchen island. Other kitchen style touches include halogen track lighting, wood laminate cabinetry, ceramic tile backsplash, and a double stainless steel sink.

Polygon has done a great job in making every square foot of interior and exterior space is usable. “I personally love the fact that the patio and yard are located right off the kitchen,” says Blighton. “This makes barbecuing and entertaining outdoors so convenient — really an extension of our home.”
