Altus: White Rock living
October 04, 2022
It’s unanimous. Buyers on the quest for a home in a charming seaside community with 20 percent more hours of sunshine than Vancouver have fallen in love with Altus. Located in one of White Rock’s established single-family neighbourhoods, this dazzling condominium boasts eye-catching architecture, an enviable setting, and enjoys more sunshine than Vancouver.
Best of all, these homes are all move-in ready, meaning you’ll be settled in time to enjoy the spectacular fall colours. And, if living on top of the world would be a dream come true, Altus still has one remaining penthouse boasting almost 2,400 sq. ft. and views that officially qualify in the “to die for” category.
“This is such a beautiful community,” says Stan Wong, finance director with Oviedo Properties. “And our location opposite the Peace Arch Hospital at Russell and Finlay means you’re within walking distance to all the shops and amenities of Uptown district and Semiahmoo Shopping Centre. Plus the famous White Rock Promenade where you’ll find boutiques and restaurants—including some of the best fish’n’chips in the Lower Mainland—is only a short drive away.”
Need one more enticement? How about prices start at under $1 million for a two-bedroom—something unheard of in many other areas of Metro Vancouver.
All about lifestyle
Inside, Altus is thoughtfully designed to create an engaged, luxurious lifestyle. Features include an entertainment-sized island often with display shelving and wine storage, custom millwork throughout, and plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows to fill your home with natural light.
“We also focused on providing amenities people will actually use,” Stan says. “Swimming pools, for example, are extremely expensive to maintain and have a low margin of usage. Instead, we’ve provided things like a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a fireside lounge with pool table and caterer’s kitchen, an expansive deck with outdoor kitchen, and even a dedicated dog wash because we want to look after the many buyers who include four-footed friends in their family.”
He adds that as online shopping continues to proliferate, it’s become essential to have a secure parcel delivery room. At Altus, this new necessity has been taken one step farther with a full-time concierge to not only ensure parcels are safely stowed until the owner gets home, but to also look after a myriad of other daily tasks.
And how’s this for an environmentally savvy bonus. “We’re the first residential development in Canada to provide access to EV charging stations for 100 percent of our owners,” Stan says. “Every parking stall comes equipped with its own charging station, so you’re never waiting for someone else to finish.” Plus, for the many people who prefer two wheels to four, there’s the peace of mind that comes with secure bike storage.
Altus has a selection of move-in-ready, two- and three-bedroom homes above the street-level retail that includes a popular family-run, artisan coffee shop and a second level of legal and medical services. The presentation centre is open noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday or by appointment anytime. Visit altuswhiterock.com or call 778.294.7794 for more information.
