Farmhouse style: rich in history From our agricultural roots to today’s new homes, country is in KOLBY SOLINSKY Farmhouse architecture is an intriguing style. Rather, it is a combination of several. It exists as an anomaly; its sole reason for being is that it is meant to oppose the ideas of “style” or “architecture” altogether. It’s the

ultimate underdog that has become a major player. In fact, farmhouses first originated in the 1700s because homeowners refused to pay architects for their work, opting to build houses by hand instead. They understood, before most, that time was as valuable as money. That’s not to say that farmhouses aren’t stylish. While the famous lines and designs of Colonial, Victorian, Neomodern, and Craftsman architecture continue to attract

home owners because of their adherence to a certain time or look, farmhouses serve a purpose and a location – practicality and the land beneath them. And, they attract buyers by fusing a humble character with clean lines, timeless design and a combination of features from all other styles listed above. From its early inception in Europe (in the vast fields of Germany and Scandanavia) to CONTINUED ON P.2

Buyers line up for homes Reports from various agencies have been telling us for months that the real estate market is rebounding in Metro Vancouver. The latest release from the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver reports that September brought in the second-highest number of residential sales ever recorded for the month of September. Perhaps the most significant indicator that the housing market is healthy in the region is the opening weekend that Polygon Homes experienced at its Burnaby development, a tower entitled Luma. Polygon vice-president of marketing Ben Smith notes the lineup started Friday at 3 p.m. for the Saturday noon opening. In total, 135 out of Luma’s 180 homes (75 per cent) were sold on the weekend, in the mid$400s per square foot. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom homes range in size from 744 square feet to 1,176 sq. ft.; completion is slated for May 2011. “This is very exciting news for us, but also for the market. It means that presales are viable again and you don’t have to be in the downtown (Vancouver) core,” Smith says. When completed, the sleek tower will offer sophisticated homes in the centre of Burnaby’s bustling core, with Metrotown Centre nearby. Polygon Homes president and CEO Neil Chrystal was pleased with the weekend’s results. “There were several factors that made Luma such a success,” says Chrystal. “Metrotown is a sought-after location with limited selection available right now. Interest rates are still historically low, and we’re offering some very attractive value.”

More questions than answers on HST Former B.C. premier heads plans for HST referendum TRICIA LESLIE A common saying holds that there are only two things certain in life: death and taxes. The latter has been causing some grief in B.C. lately, ever since the provincial government announced its plans to combine the provincial and federal sales taxes – the Harmonized Sales Tax – in July. While B.C.’s government says the tax will be beneficial for the province, many disagree, especially those involved in the housing industry – mainly because the HST will force homebuyers to pay thousands of extra dollars in taxes on new homes over $400,000 (the average price of a home in Metro Vancouver is well over $500,000). The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association and others have been sounding the alarm about the HST since the proposed plan was announced. The HST will not only add an extra burden to the many taxes homebuyers must already pay on a new home, but will mean people have to pay more taxes on many consumer goods, including the fees charged by contractors conducting strata-related services, and by reputable renovators and related contractors. Although government representatives have met with Bill Vander Zalm concerned parties over the past few months, GVHBA CEO Peter Simpson says they are still waiting for clarification on how the HST will work. “We have a lot of questions and very few answers,” he says. “We’re still trying to convince the powers that be that tax neutrality is the way to go (so people won’t pay more tax on new homes), but we really don’t have any warm and fuzzy feeling that they’re listening.” Another anti-HST advocate is former B.C. premier Bill Vander Zalm, who is heading up a citizen’s initiative to force a referendum on the HST issue. He, like Simpson, does not like the way the provincial Liberals denied they were looking at the HST prior to the election, then changed their minds shortly after and announced it without consulting the industry or the public. “That’s what people are most bothered about. They’ve lost trust in government and aside from that, (the HST) is a hard hit,” Vander Zalm says. “Everything’s going to be taxed and it’s the big businesses that will benefit.” Vander Zalm’s citizen’s initiative will work if 10 per cent of all registered voters in every riding – there are 85 in B.C. – agree they want a referendum on the HST. According to provincial law, the government would then be obliged to hold that referendum. “Right now we’re in the process of organizing groups in every constituency – we need 50 volunteers from every one,” Vander Zalm says. “(The government) is hoping (opposition to the HST) will die, but we’re going strong. We’re not going to let it die.” CONTINUED ON P.4

its solidification in the United Kingdom, the farmhouse became the dominant residence of the working-class family. During the early days of North America, they dotted the landscapes of Quebec and Ontario and finally moved west as pioneers made our country into what it is today. The future success of the farmhouse, however, was ensured early on in the U.S.’ Colonial period. As the heritage of England paved the way for the future of New England around Cape Cod and Nantucket, the same can be said of its architecture, which borrowed the symmetrical appearance of European country homes. And so, the North American farmhouse was born. Today, they mostly serve as a retrograde style of housing – an ode to our past. Their vision evokes memories of a simpler time, which is a charming character to add to the constantly evolving, growing urban scene that is Vancouver. In Cloverdale, where belt buckles, spurs and turnstiles are the rage come May and June, developments such as Morningstar’s Saddle Creek at Provinceton have brought an earthly touch to a growing urban setting, fusing Craftsman and farmhouse architecture together to create a peaceful suburban community. “Cloverdale’s area is very historic,” says Deborah Calahan, vice president of sales and marketing at Morningstar. “The old historic town, the farmland around it, the home of the rodeo out there... I did a lot of driving by with my camera and taking pictures of the scenery out there.” Calahan said that Morningstar made great use of the nature around them, even consulting Surrey Museum on Highway 10 to grab

‘MLAs work for you and I, not Gordon Campbell’ CONTINUED FROM P.2

Both Vander Zalm and Simpson are encouraging people to contact their MLAs about their dissatisfaction. “MLAs work for you and I, not for Gordon Campbell. You should expect your MLA to ‘just say no,’ which is the will of the people.” Vander Zalm says. Should the HST come in, the GVHBA would like to see the government impose transitional rules based on B.C.’s industry – not on what they’re doing in Ontario, which is currently the case. “They should be looking at a madein-B.C. example, not something from Ontario because it’s expedient,” Simpson says. He notes that B.C.’s situation is extremely different than Ontario’s. B.C. has much higher average house prices as well as land and construction costs, for example. The GVHBA will continue to push for tax neutrality, Simpson notes, as well as other measures, including grandfathering in any housing contracts signed before July 1, 2010 and increasing the rebate threshold as well as the rebate ($20,000 to $30,000). “This is a tax burden that’s being place on an already over-taxed middle class,” Simpson says. Visit the GVHBA at www.gvhba. org or Vander Zalm’s website at www. fighthst.com for more information about the HST or the citizen’s initiative for a referendum.

West Van wants your housing ideas The District of West Vancouver is seeking property owners and design teams interested in constructing new housing types as part of a pilot project. The municipality’s senior community planner, Stephen Mikicich, says the majority of West Vancouver accommodation is composed of single-family housing and apartment units. Last year, the district held community discussions to hear how and if residents want to adapt to a growing need for smaller, affordable housing. An aging population is looking to downsize, while young families are seeking affordable options to break into the housing market, Mikicich said. Select proposals will help the district shape developments that fit into the community and could be used as a prototype for other developments. The pilots will help staff develop policies and regulations, he noted. The deadline for proposals is at 4 p.m. on Oct. 20. Staff expect to have a short list by the end of the month. More detailed pilot project plans are expected to hit council’s table in December. Rebecca Aldous, North Shore Outlook

A home style to fit any community CONTINUED FROM P.2

farmhouse movement. The homes’ triangular roofs and colourful exteriors are an excellent compliment to Cloverdale’s ability to maintain post-modern style without a snobbish attitude. “We hope our homes have ‘that’ charm,” she says. “And it’s got all of the modern conveniences that anyone would want.” But while it may be nice to occasionally take a trip through time, it’s certainly a blessing that things have progressed. That way, when you buy a farmhouse-style home, you’re getting the luxuries of the past without the reality of hard living. The interiors are spacious and the elaborate furnishings and appliances prove that the higher price point – homes start at $549,900 – is worth it. Additionally, the GreenStar Advantage (a Morningstar Homes initiative) at Saddle Creek ensures that all appliances, utilities and materials used during the building process adhere to the strictest and most energy-efficient guidelines. That’s certainly a positive sideeffect of how farmhouse innovation has progressed since the 1700s. After all, the Industrial Revolution didn’t have the most positive impact on the environment. Looking over Cloverdale and the valley to its north, residents may find themselves with their feet up on their front porch, staring out into the horizon with a feeling that they’ve finally ‘arrived’. If one thing is for sure, it’s that people have warmed to the community. “We opened for sale, the lineups came and it’s all been a huge success for us out there,” says Calahan. “We’ve actually laid out the houses on the land so that every home does have a view. “This whole project, you can appreciate that it was built on a hillside.” Meanwhile, in Langley, High Point Equestrian Estate Community (a partnership between Cressey Development Group and Pacific Rim Property Developments) offers beautiful and modern country homes whose style has been untouched by time. Originally, High Point was planned to be a golf course community but, upon further inspection, it was realized that might not be the best way to go. “When I went out there and looked around, South Langley is the Horse Capital of B.C.,” says Anthony Miachika, principal and president of Pacific Rim Property Development. “It became evident very quickly that nobody

really wanted a golf course, and a horse community would be welcome.” From that, High Point was born. Within the community are nine acres of equestrian and pedestrian trails – proof that Cressey and Pacific Rim were bale to honour their promise to Langley. They also gave back roughly 85 acres of park area to the City of Langley. Each of the expansive lots has a different acreage – from smaller to very large estates – and their designs are loyal to the farmhouse’s roots. “In our guidelines and vision statement, we came up with two names for it: European Colonial and Estate-style,” said Michiaka. “As an example, the rural estate includes ranch, farmhouse, prairie and cottage style... when I say European country style it’s like a little more formal heritage from Europe and what

you’d see in the Eastern United States.” Sounds a little like Nantucket Island or Cape Cod, doesn’t it? “We didn’t really look into a more contemporary kind of architecture because the landscape and the people looking to buy just didn’t lend as well with that,” he says. “We were really trying to maintain the integrity of the area.” In both Langley and Cloverdale, people are gravitating to a more traditional style. But what’s the beauty of farmhouse architecture? Perhaps it’s that in these two developments, in two different cities, with two completely different looks, you can have one style that is nothing less than a resounding success. It’s a perfect example of how unflinching compromise can allow for a winning combination.
