The Cottages at Seabright Farm is the largest and newest residential project in Point Roberts. Construction recently started, and Lower Mainland residents are flocking to it to purchase their own private piece of paradise.
“You can purchase an ocean-view cottage for less than the price of an average condominium in Vancouver,” says Wayne Knowles of Orca Shores LLC, the project’s developer.
Seabright Farm is comprised of 58 lots spread across 62 acres of gently sloping south-facing waterfront. The large lots (1/4 to 1/2 an acre) offering privacy along with the great views and are located in three distinct zones: the Bluff, the Meadows and the Woodlands. Seabright Farm will also have a barn/community centre, greenhouse, outdoor swimming pool and hot tubs, sauna, community vegetable and flower gardens, and orchards. The trails are perfect for running, cycling or horseback riding, and offer direct access to the beach. Because of both the elevation and south slope of the entire property, you’ll find a gorgeous view no matter where you purchase.
The cottage plans range from 850 to over 2,500 square feet, in a variety of two-or-more-bedroom floor plans. The styles include open floor plans, stone fireplaces, sunny window seats, hardwood flooring, large relaxing decks and covered porches. All of the plans include owners the option to expand their cottages in the future, whether it’s with a guesthouse, a studio or a separate master suite. Covered decks and breezeways can be built between the buildings and garages (complete with guest suites) or potting sheds added to truly make your Seabright cottage your own. The cottage designs have been specifically developed to reflect historical summer cottages and simple farm buildings typical of Point Roberts.
That character is obvious when you visit the sales centre, which is actually an original farmhouse from the 1890s that’s been outfitted with finds from garage sales and Pottery Barn. It will become an additional gathering place for Seabright owners, along with the barn-themed community hall that will be used as a venue for neighbourhood gatherings, art shows for local artists, cooking demonstrations, musical performances and wine tastings, among many other things!
And beyond Seabright Farm, Point Roberts has plenty of other things to do, whether you’re staying for a month, a week or just a weekend. Play a round of golf at the 18-hole Point Roberts Golf and Country Club, or pay a visit to the Lighthouse Marine Park to see Orca whales, comb the beach or go clamming or crabbing. The 275-acre Lily Point Marine Reserve is just around the beach corner from Seabright Farm, and features sandy bluffs and tidal flats. The full-service Point Roberts Marina has over 900 slips and is also only minutes away. The Point’s unique restaurants and eclectic shops round out the experience.
Canadians looking to purchase a cottage at Seabright Farm will be able to secure attractive long-term financing through a U.S. banking institution with 20 per cent down, and a Real Estate Disclosure Statement has been filed in British Columbia.
With the opening of the South Fraser Perimeter Road earlier this year and plans to build a new bridge to replace the tunnel on Hwy 99, getting to Point Roberts is becoming that much more convenient from all parts of the Lower Mainland.
The pricing at Seabright Farm is also exceptional, with lots starting at $180,000 U.S., while cottage and lot combinations start at $399,000.
