‘It turned out beautiful’

The Langley builder who created the 2022 PNE prize home is pleased with the results.

“It really turned out beautiful,” Sean Tilstra, vice-president of Wesmont Homes, told the Langley Advance Times during a Wednesday morning tour of the 3,408 sq. ft. three-level house, located in a new Langley neighbourhood.

A Tuscan-themed design features open spaces, rustic roof beams with high-end appliances and fixtures, and includes a one-bedroom, one-bathroom legal basement suite that can serve as a mortgage helper or a place for in-laws, Tilstra explained.

Top-end features include a “smart house” system, an EV charger, 12 solar panels, triple-pane windows and an all-electric heat pump system to warm and cool the house.

“Some builders in the area think we spent too much,” Tilstra commented – but he doesn’t agree.

It is the first time in the PNE prize home’s 88-year history that it has been located in Langley.

Reservations were being taken for in-person tours of the house online at pneprizehome.ca/guided-tours.

As well, fair visitors will be able to tour a mock-up suite that duplicates the house.
