With the spring sunshine reminding us exactly why we call White Rock home, home-buyers are excited about the prospect of enjoying it from their new Semiah residence, taking shape on the crest of White Rock hill.
“If you love sunsets, you’ll enjoy them year-round from your west-facing home at Semiah,” says sales manager Vanessa Baker.
Visitors are often surprised to learn that the spacious patio on display at the sales centre actually represents Semiah’s smallest – which at 260 square feet comfortably accommodates a dining table for six, separate lounge area with outdoor sofa and a kitchen area, complete with gas barbecue hookup (and gas included with your strata fee!).
“Buyers are thrilled to discover they’ll never need to change a propane tank again,” Baker says, sharing some of the other features people are talking about:
Rooms with a view: While covered patios ensure four-season enjoyment, homeowners will enjoy equally stunning views from inside their elegantly appointed homes, with forced air heat and air conditioning providing year-round comfort. From the North Shore mountains to expansive ocean-scapes – not to mention those stunning sunsets – Semiah’s unique location and siting means there’s not a bad view in the house.
A floorplan for everyone: With brisk interest in the unique 88-unit concrete residence, buyers still have a variety of layouts and price points to choose from. From 1,087-square-foot, two-bedroom condominium to ground-floor townhomes to a 1,700+ square-foot sub-penthouse with two-bay private garage and adjacent storage room, “we definitely have something for everyone.” All enjoy entertainment-sized kitchens, dedicated laundry rooms with side-by-side LG washer and dryer, and contemporary light-filled interiors you’ll love coming home to.
Exceptional finishes: “One of the things I hear about most often is the level and quality of our finishes,” Baker reflects, pointing to features like solid wood cabinets, wine fridge, double ovens and Wolf stovetop that come standard. Designed for entertaining, you won’t find the 30-inch refrigerator typical to many condominium projects here; instead the full 36-inch Bosch fridge offers a sleek, seamless appearance and ample storage. “If you’re downsizing from a single-family home, we don’t want you to feel like you’re sacrificing anything,” Baker says, highlighting the confidence buyers have in homes built by Marcon, a longstanding local builder recognized for consistent quality, customer care and exceptional after-sale service.
The community offers even more to explore. From restaurants, shopping and galleries to services meeting all your daily needs – pharmacy, library, recreation and more – it’s all within an easy stroll. “I’m hearing many visitors say they’ll no longer need two vehicles because so much is right here in the neighbourhood,”Baker says, “At the same time, Semiah is set on a quiet road away from the hustle and bustle.
“We constantly have purchasers visit and share their discoveries in their new neighbourhood. For us to see that excitement, it just validates what we’re creating here – there’s a real buzz.”
