Crimson at Cloverdale Village: Historical setting meets modern living

Development reflects old-world charm yet built according to 21st century standards

The Province

The new Crimson at Cloverdale Village townhome project by RDG Management Ltd. is aptly being described as “small-town charm, modern living”; this also could apply to the historic Surrey village, which is currently enjoying a renaissance.

Settled in the late 1880s and long famous as the home for the Cloverdale Fairgrounds and rodeo, Cloverdale Village retains many of the heritage buildings constructed when the region was an agricultural hub — and one can easily stroll along its quaint Main Street and feel transported back to a quieter, kinder era.

Crimson reflects Cloverdale’s rural ambiance with 59 townhomes anchored by a clubhouse. The buildings are stately with steeply arched rooflines, and graced with elegant landscaping and white picket fences; at the same time, they are built according to 21st century standards, with energy efficiency and smart details.

Most of the homes have sideby-side garages, and the countrystyled kitchens are equipped with Whirlpool stainless steel appliances. “Creative DesignWorks Inc. was responsible for creating the interiors, which are large and bright and include old-fashioned touches such as a window over the kitchen sink,” says Melanie Themmen, sales manager at Fifth Avenue Real Estate Marketing Ltd. “Starting prices are in the low-to-mid $500,000s for the two-bedroom and flex units, and in the mid $600,000s for the three- and four-bedroom plus flex units.”

Crimson’s communal clubhouse features an entertainment lounge with kitchenette, a barbecue porch, and an outdoor play area for children.

While Crimson residents will find much to do and see in Cloverdale’s downtown zone, the larger neighbourhood is undergoing a facelift. Large pockets of what used to be retail surrounding Cloverdale’s core are being redeveloped for new commercial and residential purposes.

In short, Cloverdale is shaping up to be better than ever: a living slice of history that also provides convenience, whether it’s quick mass transit access to Vancouver and other Lower Mainland destinations, big brand shopping next door in Langley, or the tranquility of the sprawling farms and stables directly south.

While nearby neighbourhoods are enjoying steady growth, nothing comes close to the old-world charm in an authentic setting provided by Crimson — and as such, Themmen encourages interested parties to register today and take advantage of VIP prices.

She also urges them to act before 2018 and the implementation of new provincial government mortgage regulations that will reduce the buying power of new homeowners. “Crimson is a development from RDG that can’t be replicated anywhere else,” she says. “It is unique, and the homes will sell fast — so I would suggest taking advantage when the rates are in your favour.”
