Three developments that redefine today’s townhome

If you think you know townhomes, you may want to think again. From Vancouver to Seattle to Irvine, these three communities are turning heads — and breaking paradigms. Sure, they’re stylish and jaw-dropping in their use of eye-pleasing aesthetic, but they’re also practical. For the homeowner who appreciates the intricacies of design, there’s much to love.

Take a closer look.


Vancouver, British Columbia: Granville & 57th

A gorgeous collection of 17 townhomes, this vibrant new community includes 2- and 3-bedroom plus den homes along Granville Street in an established Westside neighbourhood (think: schools, and endless awesome amenities). Each home, a contemporary spin on the classic townhome.

Exteriors balance modern and traditional west coast architecture, an authentic nod to the history of the neighbourhood. Outside, you’ll find dramatic cedar screen accents, articulated bays, large windows and raised porches. Inside, the meticulous attention to detail continues. Kitchens that include Bosch appliances and stone countertops, and living spaces with room for full-sized furniture. (Yes, actually.)

Current Status: Hurry, the final homes are now selling.


Seattle, Washington: Revel Townhomes

When it comes to Revel, it really is a celebration of location, location, location. Situated on the incredibly dynamic California Ave SW, Revel is the embodiment of vibrancy – the best dining, shopping, and entertainment. All at your doorstep.

But there’s more to Revel than just incomparable positioning on the map.

With a nod to industrial design, Revel’s contemporary northwest aesthetic is something to be experienced. Oversized windows, metal details, cedar and fiber cement siding on the outside. And on the inside? Spacious floor plans that offer great room living and full-floor master suites with walk-in closets — and the added plus of walk-out decks.

Current Status: These homes are selling now – and will be selling fast.


Irvine, California: C2E

Before we dive into some of the reasons C2E (short for “Close to Everything”) is so plum an address, a top-level refresher into what makes Irvine such a hot place to be. A roaring job market, a dialled-in tech scene, a top-notch school district, loads of entertainment options, impressive safety stats and a central Orange County location, Irvine really offers proximity to all that. And C2E offers proximity to all that – and more.

These modern three-story residences feature clean lines and open concept floor plans, not to mention high-end finishes and details that will appeal to the homeowner who covets urban contemporary. (Oh, and did we mention the attached 2-car garages? Well, we have now.) Perhaps best of all, however, is that C2E provides an attainable entry price point into the Irvine market.

Current Status: These homes are selling now – and will be selling fast.
