Tribute by Essence Properties in Langley | Cover Story

Tucked into a quiet, residential area in Langley’s Central Gordon neighbourhood, Tribute by Essence is a collection of 80 four-bedroom townhomes that offer all the luxury and spaciousness of single-family homes plus the convenience of a lock’n’go lifestyle.

Say hello to Tribute by Essence.

“We’ve designed these homes with all the luxuries to be a true alternative to single-family living at a much more affordable price point,” says Sat Dhaliwal, trusted agent with Essence Properties. “To start with, every home is at least 22 feet wide, so the main floor is comparable to a single-family home, larger in some cases. You’ve got a private, side-by-side garage, all with enough space for storing sports gear and seasonal items or perhaps adding a work bench.”

Inside, Tribute’s standard features are clearly above and beyond. How about a few hints:

Kitchens come with a KitchenAid appliance package that includes a single-unit wall oven/microwave combination, five-burner gas cooktop, quartz countertops, Shaker-style cabinetry with soft close, and a grand centre island that’s perfect for casual dining or just hanging out while watching the chef. There’s also wide-plank laminate flooring and nine-ft. ceilings throughout main living areas, the convenience of a powder room on the main, and energy-efficient forced-air heating with rough-in for AC.


Another standard Sat’s particularly excited about is Essence’s signature entertainment wall — a dramatic focal point with custom millwork, sleek electric fireplace, and wire management system.

“We introduced the entertainment wall at our Evolve project in South Surrey, which was a Georgie Award finalist. It was such a hit with homeowners, we’re making it a standard at Tribute.”

Like other Essence projects, Tribute also incorporates the Essence Wall System, a construction detail that enhances sound dampening and fire separation performance.

Comprised of two independently constructed walls with a one-inch air space between that’s filled with R-20 insulation and sealed with acoustical caulking, this invisible feature doubles the industry standard for wall construction, giving extra peace of mind and comfort for the entire family.

Amenities to satisfy

And, of course, Tribute’s indoor/outdoor amenities — more than 12,000 sq. ft. in total — are sure to wow.

A popular social hub, the two-storey Pavilion House is where people can gather with friends for a game of billiards, celebrate a special event, or cheer on their favourite sports team in the fireside lounge. In summer, just throw open the French doors and fire up the barbecue for an al fresco dinner.

Outside, there’s a central courtyard with garden plots, a giant chess board to test your logistic skills, a kids’ playground, and plenty of café-style seating.

Exceptional location

Life at Tribute puts you in the heart of a vibrant, inviting neighbourhood. Shops, restaurants, the Langley Events Centre, and a soon-to-be-complete city park are just a short stroll away. Exceptional schools and public transit are at your doorstep. Plus, there’s easy access to the freeway to downtown Vancouver or Interior BC.
