27North homes will place residents on the doorstep of the great outdoors
Nestled along Northlands Golf Course and within steps of parks, trails, mountains and rivers, 27North’s one-, two-, and three-level homes provide a unique opportunity for owners to enjoy comfortable, spacious living, while making their backyard an outdoor playground.
The 27 homes, which range from 894 to 1,724 square feet with patios on the front, rear and rooftops (a crucial feature, considering the grandiose surroundings), were conceived and are being built by Intergulf and Tatla Developments, which relied on local architects, engineers and interior designers to bring their vision to life.
Intergulf vice-president Shaadi Faris says: “We had owned this site for a long time and waited until we knew we could add considerable value to it by bringing a different product to market. Specifically, we decided on multi-level townhouses because there’s so much demand for this type of residence and yet new construction is lacking on the North Shore.”
While this style of home is especially appealing to first-time buyers, Intergulf and Tatla “added flat units on the ground level for downsizers,” says Faris. “The style is West Coast, and the rooftop patios surrounded by the golf course, mountains and trees reinforce the uniqueness of this project.”
It’s not surprising that a collaboration between two highly respected developers and their design teams (including interior designer Area 3) would result in a host of benefits for homeowners. For example, 27North has private parking with direct home access and air conditioning is standard in all homes, as are electric fireplaces and radiant floor heating in ensuites. “And throughout, there is more space and more height than one might expect in a residential new build,” says Vanessa Miller, owner, MillerWark Real Estate Team.
The kitchens were designed as social gathering spaces, with an open-concept layout (augmented by crafted cabinetry, lavish quartz countertops and islands) that facilitates hosting. The living spaces are contemporary, with nine-foot ceilings, European-inspired laminate hardwood floors and expansive triple-paned windows. As for the bathrooms, they are bright and roomy, with white quartz vanities, heated porcelain floors and floating full-length wall mirrors.
Augmenting all of this are features that give homeowners peace of mind: video surveillance at vehicle entry ports; superior safety and fire protection (including monitored sprinklers and smoke detectors); low-maintenance landscaping; and individual residential storage and bike storage space.
Although Faris enjoys describing 27North as “a residential project whose main amenity is the great outdoors,” he adds that homeowners don’t need to travel far for groceries and other necessities. “Parkgate Village, with its shops and restaurants, is just blocks away, as is the Parkgate Community Centre with its fitness facilities, arts programs and child care.” Additionally, the harbour, beach and boating opportunities provided by Deep Cove are close by.
Due to strong demand, 27North is breaking ground this fall with completion expected by the winter of next year. “Home sales commenced on April 8, and we invite all prospective buyers to make an appointment to visit our sales centre, where we can tour you through this fabulous development,” says Miller.
