CAR­SON FEELS LIKE SMALLER COM­MU­NITY

Vancouver Sun - - WEST­COAST HOMES -

Speak­ing of garages, many of them at Car­son can fit two cars side-by-side, a fact much ap­pre­ci­ated by Farzeen Mawji and his part­ner, Ryan Cuil­lerier, who have just moved into their new home in the de­vel­op­ment.

“We like that our home is wider than a typ­i­cal town­house,” said Mawji.

“The qual­ity of light is great, and the liv­ing area over­looks a nice open space with trees. Our win­dows are east-west — there’s this won­der­ful warm glow and we get a bit of the evening sun­set.”

“The neigh­bour­hood is very well con­nected,” Mawji added. “Ev­ery­thing we need from a liv­ing per­spec­tive is in Sur­rey — lots of great restau­rants and gro­cery stores. It’s all nearby.”

“Grand­view Heights is def­i­nitely a grow­ing neigh­bour­hood with a big pedes­trian fo­cus,” said David­son. “There’s a down­town feel, but it’s still a very fam­ily-friendly place to be. There are lots of trails in the area and you can ob­vi­ously walk to restau­rants and shops as well.”

As for the homes them­selves, David­son said they’re smarter than most. They in­clude Telus Smarthome au­to­ma­tion sys­tems and Mawji was par­tic­u­larly pleased to be able to get no­ti­fi­ca­tions on his phone when the washer and dryer are done. “They seemed to have cho­sen premium fin­ish­ing as well and it feels great,” he said. “We’ve only just moved in and there’s still some un­pack­ing for us to do but it al­ready feels like home. They’ve done a re­ally nice job and as you live in it you no­tice more and more de­tails.”

Kitchens at Car­son fea­ture flat-panel cab­i­netry with soft­close doors and draw­ers, pol­ished quartz back­splashes and coun­ter­tops, full-height pantries and un­der­mounted dou­ble-bowl stain­less-steel sinks. The ap­pli­ance pack­ages are by LG and in­clude counter-depth french-door re­frig­er­a­tors and freez­ers with ice and wa­ter dis­pensers, gas ranges and con­vec­tion ovens.

Bath­rooms come with im­ported porce­lain tile floor­ing, flat-panel cab­i­netry, frame­less glass show­ers with quartz wall tiles, dual un­der­mount sinks and quartz coun­ter­tops.

Sec­ond bath­rooms fea­ture deep soaker tubs with over­sized porce­lain tile sur­rounds, un­der­mount

sinks, van­ity mir­rors and dual-flush toi­lets. “Car­son has that in­ti­mate and bou­tique feel to it ver­sus a big com­plex with 100 or 200 homes,” said David­son. “You’ll get to know your neigh­bours more and you’re not go­ing to have all that ex­tra traf­fic. The other thing with a small com­mu­nity like this is that there won’t be years of con­struc­tion right on your doorstep.” Homes at Car­son have ei­ther three bed­rooms or three bed­rooms and a den. They range in size from 1,361 to 1,528 square feet and are priced from $669,900.

“It’s just great to have a brand­new place with all the new ap­pli­ances and ev­ery­thing else,” said Mawji. “It just feels like a very well-built home.”
