Communities from Nanaimo to Whistler, Pemberton and Predator Ridge are welcoming homebuyers looking for the perfect getaway
...Developed by Solterra, Eaglewind is a master-planned community on 25 acres of land right in downtown Squamish. Solterra spokesperson Laura Rizzo says, “Nature is a predominant theme. Embedded in the rustic West Coast architecture is a Contemporary Modern twist – vibrant hues, timber and stone accents and quality materials. The first two communities are complete and bustling with life. We are in the last phase of The Streams and have 15 homes available. These three-bedroom townhomes feature efficient layouts and superb interior design.”
Given its Coast Range climate, “sunshine” and “Whistler” aren’t two words you would usually see in the same sentence. The aptly named Solana homes are located in a small microclimate in the Rainbow neighbourhood – a vibrant community of young families, seniors, and second-home owners who are all passionate about the Whistler lifestyle.
Denise Brown of Re/Max Sea to Sky Whistler says that Solana “offers big 180-degree views of both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains from its nine- and 10-foot windows and oversized covered balconies.” This BuiltGreen building consists of 18 single-level condos that range in size from 910 to 1,872 square feet in two-bedroom or two-bedroom plus den configurations. Buyers can customize their interiors to make the condo their own. Shared amenities include a rooftop terrace with outdoor furniture, an outdoor fireplace and individual garden beds for each suite. There are also two separate bike and ski tuning rooms.
Farther north at the end of the Sea to Sky Highway, “buy local” is a way of life in Pemberton. According to BC Census figures, Pemberton is the province’s fastest growing community, thanks to its proximity to Whistler Resort and employment created in a diversity of industries, including even agriculture. “
