The Crossing ideal for families seeking quiet, close-knit community

The Province

If you haven’ t yet heard of the Pacific Douglas neighbourhood — located in the southernmost tip of Surrey and a stone’s throw from the border crossing — chances are you will when the final phase of The Crossing by Gramercy sells out and the buzz about its unique surroundings reaches fever pitch.

This cosy nook in South Surrey contains stately new homes and vast farmland with narrow country roads surrounded by tall, dense woods. There’s a golf course beyond the woods, and The Crossing residents need only walk a few minutes to reach the beautiful lawn and garden of Peace Arch Provincial Park, which straddles the 49th parallel.

A little further west you will find the beaches and trendy shops of White Rock. A few minutes north is the district of Grandview Corners and Morgan Crossing, with its big-box retail stores, boutique shops and array of dining options.

Michelle Des Rosie rs, senior project manager for Fifth Avenue Real Estate Marketing Ltd., which is presiding over sales of the 67 townhomes that comprise The Crossing, summarizes the al lure of Pacific Douglas :“It’ s ideal for families who want to go home to a quiet and close-knit community at the end of the day, but have urban amenities at their fingertips.”

However, the opportunity to own a Crossing home is limited. “We’re releasing our final homes on February 11, all of which are street-facing looking on to a quiet cul-de-sac,” says Des Rosiers.

The final release of homes in question are four-bedrooms, starting at $689,900 for 1,706 square feet and rising to 1,948 square feet – each with three full bathrooms and powder room.

From the outside, The Crossing boasts classic East Coast architecture with wood-shuttered accents on the windows and arched portico entries, plus spacious double or single garages with carports. Home interiors feature open living spaces, Shaker panel cabinetry in the kitchens, subway tile backsplashes and soft-close doors and drawers, and deep en suite soaker tubs in the bathrooms along with oversized porcelain tile flooring and polished chrome fixtures.

As with all Gramercy projects, the homes are built to last. Dimple membrane-wrapped foundations come with a 50-year warranty, exterior walls are of two-by-six construction with R20 insulation, and Cat 5 wiring extends throughout each home for Ethernet, telephone and ADSL Internet.

Des Rosiers urges interested buyers to contact Fifth Avenue Real Estate Marketing as soon as possible. “Once The Crossing sells out, there aren’t any other new residential developments in Pacific Douglas to choose from,” she says. “This is truly a unique area of Metro Vancouver, so the time to act is now.”
