At Elk Creek, more home for your money is closer than you think

Chilliwack executive homes offer location, quality and room for the whole family

For growing families dreaming of more space, amenities and nature at their doorstep, affordable homes can be tough to find.

But if you’re ready to move up, some tempting possibilities are just minutes away, with the features families need … and want.

Topping the list is Elk Creek, hosting an open house July 21 from noon to 4 p.m.

Tucked into Chilliwack’s eastern hillsides area, Phase 5 of a six-phase planned community from experienced local builders Westbow Construction, Elk Creek is built for families, notes Warwick Massey, whose family recently moved into the three-year-old community.

“These are amazing homes, and if you want more for your family, you really need to visit,” he says. “We’ve found it’s such a great place to raise your family.”

1. Room to move:

Priced under $800,000, the beautifully finished four-bedroom, three-bathroom executive homes boast open-concept living with bedrooms upstairs. A second design offers three bedrooms, three baths and a large bonus room, plus a walk-out basement.

With a finished area of 2,200 to 2,500 square feet, plus covered patios and generous yards, you’ll have space for your family today, and tomorrow. Add the spacious unfinished basement and the homes jump to 3,200 to 3,700 sq.ft. with the potential for a rec room, teen space or even a suite for mom, with revenue potential.

2. Location & convenience:

Knowing you can’t get this much house for the price in town, is there a compromise in location? Not really!

Your new home is 15 minutes from shopping and 20 from downtown Chilliwack, home to just about everything you need, while the Annis Road exit to the Trans Canada Highway is just seven minutes away.

3. And you can’t beat the neighbourhood!

In addition to the protected riparian greenspace behind Phase 5, a two-hectare park is slated for construction next year, with design guided by resident input. As is fitting with the neighbourhood, the park will incorporate ‘nature play,’ such as natural boulders and logs, and a hillside area is slated for a cycling pump track.

Trail networks are expanding and will connect to the nearby Community Forest, while for golfers, one of the region’s premier courses, The Falls, sits on your doorstep. Both Harrison Hot Springs and Cultus Lake, along with its waterslide and adventure parks, are just 30 minutes down the road, and for anglers, Elk Creek is just 20 minutes from the Vedder River, world-renowned for its fly fishing.

Visit Elk Creek’s open house this Saturday, July 21 from noon to 4 p.m. at 50393 Kensington Dr. in Chilliwack, or learn more online.
