TUDOR HOUSE OFFERS DESIGN AND STYLE OF A SINGLE FAMILY HOME
Tudor House is notable on many fronts, not the least of which is that it’s the latest creation from Formwerks Boutique Properties, whose founder, Jim Bussey, is responsible for the design and development of South Vancouver’s first townhome collection, Winona Park: Chateau Park side Residences.
Like the stunning Winona Park, Tudor House exemplifies the qualities that have made Form w er ks famous: timeless, but bold, distinctive design. Plus, Tudor House benefits from its proximity to a new urban hub on Southwest Marine Drive.
Specifically, its West 63rd Avenue location — between Cambie and Yukon Street — gives owners the peace of a charming residential street near a four-acre park, with an easy walk to an urban centre of shops, the 11-screen Cineplex Theatre, the Canada Line, and bus transit.
Carmen Tsang, sales manager for Tudor House, says: “It’s a rare combination of two great elements. Usually, homeowners seeking tranquility have to move to the outer reaches of Metro Vancouver. But West 63rd Avenue is an exceptionally quiet street, and if you’re walking through Winona Park, you’d be hard pressed to believe you’re just minutes from a new urban core and a 13- minute Canada Line ride away from downtown Vancouver.”
Typically, homeowners seeking ample breathing room must sacrifice architectural intricacy (many large new residences are merely big boxes), while conversely, those seeking design flair usually find it in smaller confines. But because Formwerks is both a developer and its own architect, it has always been focused on space and architectural appeal — and both are in abundance in the 15 townhomes comprising Tudor House.
The floor plans are similar in scale to full homes, with walk-in closets and plenty of built-ins, from bookcases to vanities. The three-bedroom-and-den townhomes include a main bedroom fittingly known as the “master’s retreat”, because it takes up an entire level of the townhouse. And in keeping with the Tudor architectural style, each three-storey townhome comes with a fireplace .( For the record, the smallest threebedroom-and-den is 1,734 square feet, and the largest is 1,853 square feet).
As its name implies, Tudor House imparts a stately Shaughnessy vibe with its pitched roofs and rich red brick. “Plus, each threeand four-storey townhome has its own rooftop patio with terrific mountain views. And for those seeking a one-level living experience, Tudor House also contains four spacious condominiums, with one-bedrooms starting at a generous 631 square feet,” says Tsang.
Tudor House is ideal for people who want a home that feels almost custom built, and thanks to its location, Tudor House appeals to a wide demographic, “from young mothers who want peace for their baby but proximity to service, to the urban professional who requires a hassle-free commute to work, as well as downsizers,” says Tsang.
Tudor House officially opens on Saturday, Jan. 21.
