A hidden gem is found at Secret Ridge

Secret Ridge is no longer a secret due to its amazing location, stunning homes and large floorplans.



Secret Ridge, built by Mission Group Homes on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain, is no longer a secret due to its amazing location, stunning homes and large floorplans.

“You won’t find this anywhere else in Metro Vancouver,” says sales manager Barbara Hughes. “They feel like single-family homes, without the maintenance and upkeep.”

The duplex homes, which Mission Group calls “paired homes” and which are more than double the size of a usual townhome, have already garnered an extremely positive response. The project is over 75 per cent sold, and Hughes notes that the location is one of the biggest draws.

“It’s a beautiful setting,” she says. “There’s no one near you, so it feels incredibly private.”

Secret Ridge is situated within the Foothills at Burke Mountain community, and bordered by East and West Smiling Creek, making your new home feel like it’s a part of nature.

“This a really unique product offering in a beautiful, growing community,” says JoAnne Adamson, director of sales at Mission Group. “It’s an ideal location; there’s no one else offering this kind of opportunity.”

Craftsman-style architecture lends itself to great curb appeal, along with spacious south-facing covered decks and patios, double-wide attached garages and painted wooden fences surrounding each yard.

Inside, rich wood laminate flooring throughout the main living areas and soaring vaulted ceilings (with many up to 17 feet) on the main floor welcome you home.

The gourmet kitchen includes custom wood shaker cabinetry, complemented by double thick polished granite countertops with a full-height mosaic tiled backsplash, an expansive kitchen island and under-cabinet lighting for extra illumination while you cook. Homeowners can choose Kitchen Aid stainless-steel appliances as an optional upgrade.

Luxurious bathrooms are another feature of Secret Ridge. All of them include custom wood shaker cabinetry, with the master ensuite going above and beyond with their own double thick granite countertops and large format polished porcelain tile flooring. The main bathroom and secondary ensuite (depending on floor plan) have square-edge laminate countertops, a full-width vanity mirror and a soaker tub and/or full height shower with a gorgeous tile surround.

The master-on-main floorplans have been appealing to downsizers and young families alike, Hughes says. One of the floorplans actually has two master suites; one on the main floor and one on the upper floor.

“It works well for people who have family living with them,” Hughes says. “It’s very appealing that way.”

Because the homes are paired with another one, all of them are prime corner homes, and have been built wider than any other home in the area.

“I can’t stress enough how large these homes feel,” Hughes says. “

Homeowners at Secret Ridge are within easy driving distance to everything the Tri Cities have to offer, including dining, shopping, leisure opportunities and excellent schools. Burke Mountain itself is steadily growing, with its own restaurants, retail opportunities, trails and schools.

Remaining homes at Secret Ridge start at $669,900. For more information, visit www.secretridge.ca, call 604-916-8805 or stop by the display home at #105-3458 Burke Village Promenade, open Saturday to Wednesday between noon and 5 p.m.
