Life doesn’t end at your front door at Charland

Ledingham McAllister brings Charland to Coquitlam's Austin Heights neighbourhood.



Life is full of surprises, activities and excitement, and Ledingham McAllister is keeping that in mind with Charland, its condominium development in Coquitlam.

“We took your whole lifestyle into account,” says Manuela Mirecki, senior vice-president of marketing and design for Ledingham McAllister. “Life doesn’t end at your front door.”

In order to cater to that, Charland includes thoughtful touches such as a bicycle repair station, bike-sized storage lockers and storage for kayaks and paddles, making the development perfect for outdoor enthusiasts.

It also has the perfect location, just blocks from the Vancouver Golf Club and Blue Mountain Park, as well as shopping, dining and schools.

“It’s all about location, location, location,” says Mirecki. “There are mountain bike trails galore around here, and it’s incredibly green.”

Charland is joining the well-established Austin Heights neighbourhood, and will take advantage of some of the amazing views in the area.

“The views of Mount Baker and the golf course are absolutely beautiful,” Mirecki says.

Charland is equally beautiful, with its Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired exterior architecture, bamboo garden with its own seating area, infinity-pool water feature and rooftop terrace.

“There’s a real sense of pride in the outside,” says Mirecki.

Inside, the 88 spacious one-, two- and three-bedroom floorplans range from approximately 604 to 1,003 square feet, with a large balcony or patio in every home.

Among the features you’ll find in y our new space are nine-foot ceilings and contemporary laminate flooring throughout the main living areas. The kitchen in particular demonstrates the luxury of the home.

“The kitchens are spectacular,” Mirecki says. “They have all those things you would expect in a West Vancouver home. They’re really the showpiece.”

Stainless-steel appliances, halogen pot lights and under-cabinet lighting are just three of those features. The cabinetry and countertops differ depending on your colour scheme. The Dogwood scheme showcases white Shaker-style cabinets complemented by quartz composite countertops with linear-style ceramic tile, while the Evergreen scheme includes flat-panel cabinets in a warm-grey wood-grain finish and quartz composite countertops paired with a modern porcelain mini-mosaic tile backsplash. You’ll also find a breakfast bar or large kitchen island in most homes.

Luxurious bathrooms feature square-edge quartz countertops and porcelain tile floors. The master ensuite includes a deep soaker tub with full-height ceramic tile surround and recessed pot lighting, which continues in the main bathroom as well.

“These are beautiful homes and floorplans,” Mirecki says.

Homes at Charland start at $219,900. For more information, check out www.ledmac.com/charland, call 604-492-3388 or visit the presentation centre at 102-1020 Austin Avenue, Coquitlam, open daily (except Friday) between noon and 5 p.m.
