Even before he saw the plans for Kanaka Hill, Don Hart liked the townhome project.
“I just felt good about it,” said the Maple Ridge-based Realtor, who was the first to buy into the project.
“There was something in me that said, ‘This is the place where you want to be.’ I was the first one there and the first one to buy one, and we’re quite excited about it.” The development, which comprises 43 townhomes on a hilltop in the Kanaka Creek neighbourhood of Maple Ridge, is near a protected greenbelt but five minutes from the town centre.
“It’s more of a nature walking path, nature interface kind of park,” said Greg Lowe, director of sales for Rare Earth Project Marketing. “It’s a big attraction in that area.” Lowe rates the location, which sits above an elementary school, as “nine and a half out of 10.”
“It’s a very, very good site,” he said. “Many of the buyers in the Maple Ridge area have been waiting for this project because they know how nice it’s going to be because of the site.”
In an effort to do justice to the surroundings, developer Quarry Rock borrowed elements from British equestrian country estates, including Tudor elements in the architecture, landscaping and fencing. Details include stone and wood accents, gable roofs and dormers, wrought iron and mullioned windows and entry porches.
