The way to a home buyer’s heart is through the kitchen

Kitchens still the centre of the home Everyone has heard the old saying that the kitchen is the heart of the home. With today’s emphasis on open spaces and entertaining, that is once again very true. When searching for a new home, Rick and Fiona Hickman were interested in a large kitchen that was open to a dining area and living room. They found one in Morningstar’s Avondale, on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain. “From an entertaining point of view, that was very important,” says Rick. Fellow Avondale owners Claudine and Jeff Dixon agree. “The kitchen was what we fell in love with,” says Claudine. “It’s really open.” “The kitchen was the biggest draw-in,” adds Jeff, saying that entertaining was high on their list of priorities and the kitchens at Avondale

were just what they were looking for. “People love the big kitchens and big islands” at Surrey townhome development Sequoia, says Fairborne Homes general sales manager Rosalin Wang-Foong. Though a relatively recent addition to many kitchens, islands will give you increased counter space while also providing a place to sit for a casual meal or quick snack. With high-end features like glass-tile backsplashes and granite countertops becoming standard, the modern kitchen is not just functional but also beautiful. Gone are the days of the messy counters piled with gadgets, as homeowners welcome storage solutions that minimize clutter while also keeping everything to hand so you can perfect that cupcake or whip up a light family dinner.

‘There’s a real mix of ages ... that’s what makes a community’

Eclipse causing excitement in Delta by Kerry Vital

There’s a permanent light breeze at Eclipse, even as the sun gently heats your skin. Birds are chirping, and the laughter of children can be heard as soon as you step outside your door. As part of Polygon’s master-planned community of Sunstone in Delta, Eclipse is perfect for young families, older downsizers and professionals looking for their first home. Buyers of all ages are flocking to the project to purchase their own piece of airy, open paradise. “We have never seen so much excitement about living here,” says sales manager Sandra Bua. “There is such a sense of community and loving your neighbours.” The development opened for sale on June 11, with a first phase of 28 homes. Since the opening, 24 homes have been sold. “People were staying overnight here for two nights before the sale,” Bua says. The spacious townhomes in phase one come in one of three floorplans, all of which continue the astronomy theme with their names (Astral, Lunar

and Solar). Every home, ranging from 1,345 to 2,238 square feet with three or four bedrooms, includes plenty of space for families, entertaining or just a quiet romantic dinner. A popular feature? The enormous master bedrooms, all of which showcase either a large walk-in closet (some with a window) or an extra space perfect for a desk, loveseat or armoire for your shoe collection. Every ensuite includes a soaker tub with a separate shower, and marble countertops and dual sinks are standard. The largest floorplan available, the Lunar series, includes a recreation room on the bottom floor that is tailormade for a playroom, media room or office space. That layout has proven popular due to the shower downstairs, Bua says, which makes it perfect for hosting out-of-town guests or leaving teenagers to their own devices. Every room in the house feels indulgent and spacious. When the front or back door is open the breeze blows through quietly, making you feel

like a member of an exclusive resort community. That resort community atmosphere permeates the entire Sunstone development. Eclipse is the fifth project Polygon has built at Sunstone. The sense of community is never more apparent than when you take a walk down the gently curving street. “You see residents walking around with babies,” says Polygon VicePresident of Marketing Goldie Alam. “There is a real mix of ages ... that’s what makes a community.” Residents at Eclipse will be given access to the Sunstone Club, a 12,000 square-foot amenities building that includes an outdoor pool, a gym, a

fireside lounge with a billiards table, and much more. Sunstone Lake is currently being developed, alongside a playground, outdoor stage and several trails for walking or cycling. A shopping area near the club is also planned. “There isn’t anything comparable in this area,” says Alam. “Just look at what you get!” “Buyers are recognizing the incredible value,” says Bua. “They love the idea of the sense of community, and it’s a really safe neighbourhood.” Homes at Eclipse start at $429,900.

People were staying overnight here for two nights before (we opened for sale),” says sales manager Sandra Bua.

Buyers will be able to spend warm days beside the outdoor pool at the Sunstone Club (top) or go for a walk or bike ride on the new trails around the entire development.
