Toppen Ridge by Formwerks Boutique Properties in North Vancouver
September 18, 2020
Take eye-catching architecture, add a sought-after location in North Vancouver’s dynamic Moodyville neighbourhood, then mix with generous amounts of creative innovation, and voilà! You’ve just discovered Toppen Ridge’s recipe for success.
Inspired by the crisp, unpretentious simplicity of Scandinavian design, this collection of 24 townhomes is clearly wowing savvy homebuyers — from up-sizers with growing families to right-sizers on the quest for lock’n’go living. Yet there’s a uniquely West Coast ambiance as well: industrial gooseneck lighting above the front door, entrances appointed with metal awnings, and oversized windows all pay subtle homage to Moodyville’s industrial past while looking forward to its family-friendly future.
Homes To Celebrate New Lifestyles
Even more exciting, floorplans have been thoughtfully re-imagined to integrate seamlessly with today’s changing lifestyles. “These homes now include a ground-level lock-off suite,” says James McKenny, Formwerks’ director of sales and marketing. “Yes, it could be a mortgage helper, but it also accommodates the growing trend toward multi-generational living. So your parents or adult children could easily live with you while still having privacy and separation when they want it.”
Home-based entrepreneurs, too, have been delighted to find Toppen Ridge offers eight live/work homes. Just slide the living room’s frosted-glass partition, and you’ve instantly got a comfortable, private office space for client meetings or presentations. “We’re all working from home more often,” James says. “This is a fantastic option to make it more comfortable.”
Dens, too, have been redesigned with a more flexible, larger format. Thinking beyond the always popular home office, how about a work-out area, playroom, artist’s studio, or even wine room because, you know it, choice is good.
“This is such an engaged neighbourhood,” James say. “We’re seeing many buyers who grew up on the North Shore, moved away to start a career, and are now moving back to the community they love.”
For outdoor enthusiasts, Moodyville is tough to beat. Skiing, swimming, golf, hiking, mountain biking, kayaking — the list of nearby amenities is a diverse, lengthy one. Plus, you're only a few blocks from Spirit Trail that provides easy walking or cycling all the way to West Vancouver.
Of course, you could always decide to stroll over to Lower Lonsdale and explore the boutiques and fresh foods of Lonsdale Quay. There’s also a rapidly expanding array of restaurants poised to keep your tastebuds tingling, the fun of year-round outdoor entertainers, and even an art gallery or two.
Oh, and if you do feel the need to head into Vancouver, the SeaBus or multiple transit connections are ready to whisk you to the heart of downtown.
