Colleen and Rick Denoni call their home at The Summit Residences their 'dream home.'

Falling in love with The Summit Residences

Domae Homes has knocked it out of the park with their Chilliwack development The Summit Residences.

Colleen and Rick Denoni had a checklist of things they wanted in a new home when they considered moving to Chilliwack, a town they had always loved. The Summit Residences by Domae Homes checked off every one of those things.

“This was just our dream home,” Colleen says. “There was just no other home for us.”

Colleen, a piano teacher at Chilliwack Academy of Music, and Rick, who is in the construction business himself, had spent many weekends looking for their perfect home before finding the Summit Residences, a development of single-family homes in a large variety of open-concept floorplans located in the Promontory Heights community. Built in a Craftsman style, the homes are nestled in a pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood with distinctive exposed aggregate or stamped driveways and beautifully landscaped yards.

One of the best features of the project is the absolutely stunning view that each home affords.

“We love the view,” Colleen says. “It’s just spectacular!”

There are controlled and registered building design guidelines in place to keep that view for the homeowners at The Summit Residences, which is especially important to those buyers like the Denonis who had put a beautiful view on the top of their list of must-haves. The homes feature huge outdoor decks and patios perfect for taking in the scenery.

But it wasn’t just the view that drew the Denonis to the development.

“I can’t say how much I love this house,” Colleen laughs. “I love the look from the outside; the curb appeal is great. I love everything about the kitchen. It’s just perfect.”

The kitchens at The Summit Residences are open-plan and spacious, with hardwood cabinetry complemented by rich granite countertops, a hand-set tiled backsplash and a granite topped island, perfect for entertaining or a family meal.

The bathrooms are luxurious and soothing, with a deluxe soaker tub, frameless glass shower stall and floating under-lit hardwood cabinet in the ensuite. There is nothing better than whiling away the time in the bath with a good book and a glass of wine. The dual undermount sinks are convenient for couples, while the modern oversized tiles are cool and inviting.

Venturing outside, you will find hiking trails at Mount Thom Park. This was another huge draw for Rick, who loves the outdoors. Other trails, parks and lakes are just minutes away, including Cultus Lake, the Vedder River Rotary Trail and many, many others. Golfing and other recreation and leisure opportunities such as the Chilliwack Arts Centre are easily accessible by car.

If indoor pursuits are more your speed, The Summit Residences are a few minutes away from shopping centres, supermarkets and restaurants.

The 12-acre site holds 52 detached homes, with the current phase ranging from 2,116 to 2,324 square feet. For more information about the Summit Residences, check out or call 604-824-6473.
