Among the first things you notice when you visit the Wedgewood town house project in North Vancouver are the impressive art glass entry gates designed by an internationally collected and commissioned Vancouver artist Claudia Cuesta.

“It’s something that not just our homeowners are commenting on and appreciating, but the whole neighbourhood is enjoying,” says Laura Cavanagh, sales manager for the Wedgewood development, of the lush tree-inspired insignia.

“The gates tell a story of a tree seed from sapling through maturity.”

The Wedgewood Craftsman-style homes, located at the south end of Lynn Canyon Park, have a quaint street appeal. The homes have pitched gable roofs and wide overhangs, shingle-style wood siding and stone detail, replete with bay windows, flower boxes and picket fences.

The Wedgewood is at the foot of the historic Lillooet Trail, once an important transport route from Burrard Inlet to the Interior. Today, the address is distinguished by equally important highway links and appealing tranquil trails.

Shopping is available at nearby Real Canadian Superstore and close by at Park & Tilford. An elementary school is just blocks away; Capilano University College, a short drive up the hill.

“This place has a truly unique locale as you just go over the bridge and you are in Vancouver, but you’re also surrounded by this great system of greenery, trails and parks,” Polygon executive Ralph Archibald says.

Inside, the homes are soaring with elegant nine-and 10-foot ceiling heights and large scaled glazing on the main floors. Some units have sunken living rooms adding to the sense of spaciousness. Gracious outdoor decks add to the ambience and living space.

In the kitchens, granite counters and Samsung and Frigidaire stainless steel appliances add polish and functionality to the glimmering new spaces.

The ensuites feature double sinks, a soaker tub and separate shower with granite topped vanity, while all bath and powder rooms boast streamlined Kohler fixtures. Downstairs, attached two-car garages offer plenty of storage.

“Here you get more space for considerably less than it would take to buy a single family home,” Archibald says. “And it’s very difficult to find a single-family home or new town house in North Vancouver at these prices at any time.”

All the sparkle you’d expect from a new multi-family residence along with new generation rain-screen and sprinkler systems add confidence and credence to the purchase of a new home over an older town house, too.
