Homebuyers are flocking to the “Friendly Features” of Bluetree Homes, truly proving it’s the thought that counts. Community. Quality. Value. As a purchaser in today’s new-home market, can you really have it all? In considering the criteria of what it takes to feel at home, communities that surge ahead of the pack when it comes to livability stem from the evident combination of innovation and award-winning experience delivered by Bluetree Homes.
Their philosophy takes the fundamentals of location, neighbourhood amenities and achieving exceptional design, building quality and customer service and goes further. In the current real estate race to offer affordable prices, Bluetree is a builder that has struck a rarely seen balance of exceeding buyers’ wish lists and award-winning design with sharp pricing and community plans that makes buyers want to call home.
“You can really live here,” says Bluetree’s General Manager of Sales and Marketing Yosh Kasahara, pointing to all their different communities, past and present, throughout the Lower Mainland. “Every home we build, without exception, includes our Friendly Features that make all the difference when it comes to how people want to live.”
Those features have hit a home run with buyers. They range from subtle nuances of state-of-the-art design to conscientious choices in creating a community feel – to intuitive planning when it comes to usability. Bedrooms are large enough for queen-sized beds and end tables, kitchens are equipped with high-performance appliances without extra option pricing; and storage spaces are cleverly conceived, from spice racks and bathroom vanity cabinets to ample closet space, even offering his-and-hers or walk-ins wherever possible. Beyond the interiors, there’s a focus on usable outdoor living spaces with plenty of room for BBQs and entertaining. Common areas feature everything from well-appointed fitness centres and lounges to a Dog Wash Station equipped with hot and cold water so as to not freeze your pooch’s paws off after those muddy days in the park.
Friendly Features have become the trademark of a team that comes from the long-standing ParkLane homes, a B.C. legacy that has spanned more than 30 years. “Offering buyers value and a solid investment without compromise is ambitious,” Kasahara notes, “and it’s something that we are very proud to be able to deliver. We’re a part of the communities we build and our approach is always about the long-term.” Bluetree’s thoughtful style is wholly evident in these upcoming landmark buildings:
Main Street – Modern design meets vintage style
Bluetree takes centre stage among some of Vancouver’s most popular shops, cafés and restaurants at its landmark location at Main Street and King Edward Avenue. The transit-friendly and amenity-rich Mid-Main neighbourhood will be home to an iconic new building featuring a contrast of red heritage brick and a contemporary grey and white exterior. The well-appointed and spacious one-bedroom to two-bedroom plus den apartment homes start from just $354,900 or $575 per square foot. It’s a stunning value by a top-tier builder for such a sought-after location and best of all, high-performance stainless steel appliances, sleek flat-panel cabinetry, stone countertops, and either one or two parking stalls all come standard as part of these well-appointed urban residences. It’s a rare opportunity to buy a piece of Main Street at an achievable price.
Mackin Park – Contemporary living in a historic neighbourhood
Bluetree’s vision for French-inspired architecture takes root in the heart of Maillardville in southwest Coquitlam. The Heritage au modern theme would make this boutique collection of one-bedroom to two-bedroom plus den apartments right at home in Montreal as easily as it would in Paris. High-end finishes include high-performance stainless steel appliances, engineered stone countertops, sleek flat-panel cabinetry and Bluetree’s trademark space-saving Friendly Features, such as spice racks and pull-out pantry drawers in kitchens and custom built-in mirrored cabinets in bathrooms. These homes are offered at an incomparable value in the local market with prices starting from just $199,900.
