This past month has shown us that we need to know the best of our community both outdoors and indoors.
Bad weather can put a damper on outdoor fun so it never hurts to be aware of fun indoor options to get your kids moving and off the couch on not-so-great days. Aldergrove’s Kinsmen Community Centre is close by and offers a fitness centre and local library while the Community Arena offers drop-in skating. Twenty minutes away in Langley, there are five rec centres: George Preston, W. C. Blair, Walnut Grove, Willoughby and Willowbrook.
Indoor fun will be even closer in 2018 with the completion of the new leisure and recreation centre in downtown Aldergrove. This multi-purpose facility will be home to numerous community activities and events and features a 550 seat arena, fitness centre, walking surface and outdoor aquatic facility including pool, waterslide tower, tidal pool, current channel, children’s aqua structure and playground.

Aldergrove is a little urban escape parked between Langley and Abbotsford. Our new homes have an Abbotsford address, but are located within the community of Aldergrove…when you “map it” on your handheld you’ll see what we mean. It is less than a 20-minute drive to downtown Langley (we love the Little White House & Co.) and less than a 15-minute drive to downtown Abbotsford (can you say Duft and Co. chocolate croissant?). With a population of around 13,000, Aldergrove has all the great places you need right in your backyard. In fact right down the street from our new project is a Safeway, Starbucks, Gas Station, pet store, Subway and a whole bunch more. Furthermore, if you need to get out and be in nature, Creekside park is a hop, skip and a jump away. It’s the perfect place to get away from it all yet feel like you’ve got everything you need.

So far, we are working on clearing the land and letting the community know there is something special coming to their neighborhood.
We’ve put our first information sign up on the property (you may have already seen it) and registration is well underway. We are finalizing really great floorplans that take into consideration what’s needed in a townhome today. No detail is being left to chance! We are putting the finishing touches on new specs we’ve discovered and cool features we think will resonate with Gramercy home buyers. As more details develop, we’ll be sure to keep you posted! Its been fun getting to know the Aldergrove community and all it has to offer…so green and beautiful!
As an interested potential purchaser looking for a home, we also want to keep you up-to-date on the latest in real estate news. The BC Government is now helping first-time home buyers get into the housing market. They have started a new program that loans a home buyer the matched amount to their down payment, up to $37,500, on an interest free loan for the first 5 years. Wow, that’s a lot to take in! If you are a first-time home buyer, this is definitely something you are going to want to look into!
