Morningstar Homes has a reputation for being one of the top single-family builders in the Lower Mainland, with beautiful homes in several communities. Now, they’re bringing their expertise to South Surrey with The Village at Southwood.
“South Surrey is one of the most sought-after places to live,” says Deborah Calahan, vice-president of sales and marketing for Morningstar. “There are so many amenities in the area. It’s close to great recreation like the new aquatic centre, good schools, the ocean, shopping, dining and the United States. It’s truly got it all!”
The three-bedroom homes at The Village at Southwood are built in a contemporary West Coast style, with generous use of stucco, stone and wood that combines for some serious curb appeal. Each home has a generous private backyard for leisure time with the family.
Inside, the spacious open floorplans range from 2,570 to 2,615 square feet, with an unfinished basement that gives buyers the option to include a deluxe finished basement or legal suite.
The vaulted ceilings and window seats are just two beautiful details in the homes. Like all Morningstar homes, the kitchen is a highlight.
“The kitchen is king in our homes,” Calahan says.
The Village at Southwood kitchens include large granite islands perfect for entertaining or family meals, as well as high-end stainless-steel appliances.
Natural light is prevalent throughout the homes due to the huge windows. Gorgeous glass-paneled stairwells add to the open feel and contemporary look of the home.
Another stunning addition is the linear gas fireplace in the living area.
Upstairs, the master suite is an oasis, with a wall-to-wall seam-less glass shower enclosure with sitting bench, two hand-held wands and a large rain shower head.
“The ensuite makes you feel like you’re on vacation at a luxury spa!” Calahan says. “They feel so extravagant.”
Morningstar is offering several options to homeowners, allowing them to truly make their home their own. Among them are an indulgent steam shower, Nu Heat flooring in the master ensuite and main bathroom, an electric linear fireplace to add ambiance to either a master bedroom or den and a state-of-the-art four-zone Sono audio system.
“There’s even some out-door living choices like a garden bench with planters and faux grass for low maintenance yards!” Calahan says. “People really appreciate that.”
The homes opened for sale in August, and have already been very popular with buyers.
“There has been an amazing response so far,” says Calahan.
Part of the appeal is the neighbourhood. Close to the amenities of Morgan Crossing, nearly anything you can imagine is within walking or easy driving distance. Recreation opportunities at Crescent Beach or one of the numerous golf courses and parks are all nearby. The exciting Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre is due to open next year. And kids can walk to the new elementary school that is slated to open in the near future located just down the street.
“It’s really special,” Calahan says. “We’re really thrilled to be here.”
