White Rock is one of the Lower Mainland’s most popular cities, with its own character and unique style. Now developer Ledingham McAllister is putting its own stamp on the area with Saltaire, its 36-unit condominium development just moments from the beach.
“White Rock is where people come to play,” says Ledingham McAllister Senior Vice-President of Marketing and Design Manuela Mirecki. “Buyers at Saltaire live where others play.”
Built in a contemporary West Coast style, there’s plenty of curb appeal at Saltaire. Cultured stone and heavy timber elements combine with elegant brick and wood detailing to present a beautiful picture.
“We wanted to maximize the amount of windows and view vistas,” Mirecki says. “It’s built in an L-shape, which maximizes the number of corner homes.”
The one- and three-bedroom homes range from approximately 720 to 1,634 square feet, with nine-foot ceilings and engineered hardwood flooring in the main living areas. Huge windows let the light pour in, making your home feel expansive and open.
“You can sit in your living room and see Semiahmoo Bay,” Mirecki says. “It really brings the outdoors in.”
The largest two-bedroom-and-den homes, which Mirecki calls “the rotunda homes” are particularly amazing, with seriously gorgeous interior architecture and views.
“You get unbelievable sweeping vistas and decks in these homes,” says Mirecki. There are also exposed wood beams arrayed in a sunburst pattern on the ceiling and an incredible amount of space to relax or entertain.
Among the gorgeous features you’ll find at Saltaire are gourmet kitchens with stainless-steel appliances, generous breakfast bars and islands and your choice of two designer colour schemes, Classic and Contemporary. The Classic scheme includes Shaker cabinetry in a classic white finish, complemented by white quartz stone countertops and a Bianco Venatino marble backsplash. The Contemporary scheme features flat-panel walnut finish cabinetry and natural grey quartz stone countertops with a gloss-white ripple effect backsplash.
“Everyone comments on the kitchen,” says Mirecki.
In the bathrooms, you’ll find porcelain tile flooring and a modern rectangular undermount sink. Some homes include frameless glass showers with a porcelain tile surround, while the luxurious master ensuite holds a soaker tub.
Every home includes a large outdoor space with stunning views of Boundary Bay or the North Shore mountains.
“Our sales manager says she’s never received more compliments on a project before,” says Mirecki. “We’ve had literally thousands of people through our display suites.”
Saltaire is located just off the White Rock boardwalk, so residents can easily take advantage of everything the area has to offer. Whether you’re in the mood for shopping, dining or recreation activities, you’re within walking distance. You’ll also have easy access to Highway 99.
“You’re right in the middle of a pedestrian-friendly walking district,” Mirecki says.
Ledingham McAllister has a reputation for quality homes and great value, and has been family-owned and operated for 108 years. Mirecki notes that buyers at Saltaire are assured of great customer service and excellent construction.
“We build what we say we will build,” she says.
