Gramercy?s The Crossing proving to resonate with homebuyers

With only 13 homes remaining, The Crossing by Gramercy has attracted buyers from all over Metro Vancouver. And even though its appeal is manifold, families moving east from areas such as Kitsilano have been especially vocal in praising The Crossing’s unique location and benefits.

The 67 townhomes in South Surrey are situated in a cosy nook of dense woodland, quiet streets and estate homes. This small region, steeped in agricultural tradition, is known as Pacific Douglas. This location has an iconoclastic vibe that comes from residents knowing they’re in a magical place, where children can play freely and curfews have been replaced by the setting sun.

Like Kitsilano residents, The Crossing homeowners are close to the beach: the sandy shores of White Rock. There’s also easy access to shops in the form of eclectic hot spots along the waterfront, big-box retail in Grandview, boutique stores in Morgan Crossing, a variety of restaurants (including My Shanti by renowned chef Vikram Vij), and services.

Pacific Douglas is a golfer’s paradise, flanking the Peace Portal Golf Club and the Hazelmere Golf and Tennis Club, just a few minutes away. In fact, the final 13 homes at The Crossing – all of them four bedrooms – are street-facing on a peaceful cul-de-sac near the golfing green.

As for the homes themselves, the exteriors are classic East Coast with wood shutters on the windows and arched portico entries. The interiors are characterized by open living spaces and elegant touches in the kitchens and bathrooms, such as high-arc faucets, classic subway tile backsplashes and deep soaker tubs.

There’s much more: shaker-panel cabinetry, soft-close doors and drawers, oversized porcelain tile flooring. As a company that strives to provide homeowner convenience, Gramercy also offers 12 months of free TELUS high-speed Internet 15 with wireless router and modem, as well as 12 months of free TELUS Optik TVs Essentials package, a choice of two theme packs and PVR.

Neighbourhoods that are truly iconoclastic are becoming increasingly rare as Metro Vancouver’s population steadily increases, and normally, living in such a location comes at a price. Fortunately, that price is a nice surprise: the four-bedroom homes — each with three full bathrooms and powder room — start at $689,900 for 1,736 square feet and rise to 1,948 square feet.

The only limiting aspect of The Crossing is the window of opportunity for people curious about living in this neck of the woods. Once the remaining townhomes are sold, there aren’t any other new townhome communities in Pacific Douglas to choose from.

Therefore, the time to act is now. For more information about the Crossing’s final release of homes, contact [email protected] or call 604-542-2883.
