Gatehouse Place is a unique neighbourhood, with a rural setting, located in the heart of Courtenay in the Comox Valley. This 16 building lot subdivision features large residential lots with views of the Comox Glacier. These home sites are located adjacent to three large fish bearing ponds with extensive aquatic plantings as well as a large natural park that has protected walkways and greenways. Seventy percent of these lots have been sold and there are only three premier lots still available, ranging in size from 13,714 to 18,718 sq. ft. (averaging 1/3 of an acre).
Residential and building lots are selling quickly in the Comox Valley due to the fact that there is a low inventory of lots to choose from. Gatehouse Place offers a country style of living surrounded by ponds, parks and mountain views. Residents are only minutes away from all the amenities in the beautiful Comox Valley.
Centrally located on the west side of Courtenay on Vancouver Island, residents are close to recreational facilities, shopping, restaurants, schools, North Island College, Comox Valley Aquatic Centre, the airport, beaches, rivers and golf courses. Mt. Washington is only a 25 minute drive from Gatehouse Place. There are three premium building lots left to select from and custom homes can be designed specifically for each home lot. Prices start at $158,000, these lots are offered at an extremely good price for their size and location. If you are looking for a piece of Vancouver Island real estate to build your new home on, be sure to consider looking at Gatehouse Place.

Comox Valley Condominiums – Parkside at Riverglen on Vancouver Island, BC
Recently, I visited Parkside, a condominium project that is tucked away within the Old Orchard area of Courtenay, a popular area of historic character homes in the Comox Valley. Parkside is located only a five minute walk to the downtown core of Courtenay, where residents have access to a farmers market, retail shops, a grocery store, banks and specialty shops. Parkside is also located on the Puntledge River with access to a beautiful walking trail alongside the river and through near by parks.
Inside the Parkside, you will find granite countertops, hardwood floors, heated tile floors in bathrooms, solid wood cabinets and 9′ ceilings with crown mouldings. An appliance package includes stainless steel kitchen appliances as well as washer & dryer. Parkside also offers residents a separate storage locker for recreational items such as bikes, kayaks or ski equipment and features underground parking. Prices start at $249,900 for these Vancouver Island homes and GST is applicable on this price at 5% (there is a rebate available if used as a primary residence or rented for a minimum 12 months time.) Parkside has been completed and there are 42 units in the building; there are 11 units left for sale. The Comox Valley offers some of the best value for new homes on Vancouver Island for both residents and investors alike. Contact Anna Jorgensen for more information on Parkside.

Luxury Homes located inside the Fairwinds Golf Course and Ocean Front Community on Vancouver Island, BC
Luxury Homes located inside the Fairwinds Golf Course and Ocean Front Community on Vancouver Island
This week I took a tour of the Rockcliffe Homes project inside the Fairwinds community. The detached homes feature distinctive architecture with a West Coast design on the outside and have attached garages and landscaped yards. I was very impressed with the upgraded interior finishing on the homes, offering an ambiance of casual elegance. This 26 home development has been built inside the Fairwinds community and the homes are built featuring custom sized windows to view the surrounding forest and dramatic arbutus trees. These homes offer a stylish, well designed living space and an opportunity to be close to the golf course, marina and other exclusive amenities in a truly natural setting.
While I was there, I saw a few of the residents walking on one of trails that lead directly from Rockcliffe Park to the community centre. This centre is open to all residents and features a pool, a weight room, a social room and a gym. Exercise classes, yoga and badminton are just a few of the activities offered at this beautiful facility.
The Fairwinds Community is located between Nanaimo and Parksville on central Vancouver Island on 1350 acres of property and features a golf course, a marina and world-class amenities. Homes, townhouses and estate residences offer residents breath-taking ocean and golf course views in the mildest climate zone in Canada. Homes in Rockcliffe Park range in size from 1638 to 2340 square feet and prices start at $499,000. Take a drive a have a look at both the Fairwinds community and the new homes just south of Parksville on Vancouver Island, you will be pleasantly surprised! Visit Fairwinds website
