Retire in style at Englewood Courtyard

Englewood Courtyard is part of a master-planned community for those over the age of 45.

Resort-style retirement living has come to Chilliwack at Englewood Courtyard. With amenities right on-site and elegant homes that are perfect for downsizers, it’s not hard to see why the project is already so popular.

“We wanted to build a community atmosphere,” says realtor Kathy Virtanen. “This is the place you’re looking for if you want a sense of community. You don’t always see that anymore.”

Englewood Courtyard is part of a master-planned community just for adults over the age of 45 called Englewood Village. Residents will find leisure activities, shopping, entertainment and restaurants close by; outdoor activities are particularly easy to find at Englewood Courtyard, with its close proximity to Cultus Lake and Chilliwack Lake. Among the amenities on-site is a parking lot for RVs and Club Englewood, a 2,500 square-foot clubhouse with an exercise area, social lounge, kitchen, reflecting pond and a spa. You can also enjoy a patio barbecue area, bocce courts, community garden and a dog park, Virtanen says.

Chilliwack has long been a popular place for Lower Mainland retirees due to its lower real estate prices, beautiful scenery and relaxing atmosphere, so it comes as no surprise that buyers have been very interested in purchasing at Englewood Courtyard.

Virtanen notes that she often hears buyers saying the good value, size of the homes and great design are the reasons they are interested in the project, along with the simply amazing views of the local mountains and rural surroundings.

The first phase is currently on sale, with 40 one- and two-bedroom condominium residences ranging from 879 to 1,400 square feet in a variety of floorplans. This phase of Englewood Courtyard will be the first five-storey wood frame building in Chilliwack, and will be followed by two four-storey buildings in the later phases. Those concerned about sound travelling between the condos will find peace of mind in knowing that there will be plenty of sound reduction between each home.

The residences themselves are spacious and open, and are built with West Coast-style architecture that includes glass railings and plenty of windows to let the light pour in. Each home features nine to 12-foot vaulted ceilings, laminate flooring, maple shaker-style cabinetry, granite countertops and a gas fireplace, among other beautiful features. Air-conditioning for those hot summer months is also included, along with underground parking for your convenience. The condos will be built using SAFERhome standards that allow you to age-in-place, so you won’t have to worry about moving again in your golden years. If you’re in the mood for a little bit of the outdoors, you can relax on your own covered balcony or private terrace.

Homes at Englewood Courtyard start at $184,900. For more information, visit www.englewoodcourtyard.ca, call 604-824-8232, or visit the presentation centre at 45750 Keith Wilson Road, Chilliwack. The presentation centre is open between 12 and 4 every day.
