When it comes to relocating to a new home in Abbotsford, location is one of the first things you consider.
If you’re working, what is your commute like? If you have children, how close are your schools of choice? And let’s not forget the amenities: recreational, shopping and services. The style and layout of your new home are clearly important, but after you’ve moved in, how close are the day-to-day activities for you and your family?
Timberlane, a neighbourhood in development in Mountain Village, offers stunning vistas from every home site, while checking all of your boxes when it comes to location.
“This is what it takes for a home to have an A-plus location,” says Jon Kinneman, marketing and art director for Algra Bros., Timberlane’s developer. “From the side of this mountain, you have a panoramic view of the valley from the east toward the Cheam Range, Mount Baker immediately in front of you, sweeping farmland views and urban views west toward Langley.”
Besides the viewscape, the neighbourhood is perfectly situated to enjoy other elements:
- Schools nearby Whether you’ve got young children (Mountain Elementary is walking distance), high schoolers (Yale Secondary is less than a five-minute drive) or middle school (Fraser, virtually next door to Yale), or have specialized students in your family (Abbotsford School of Integrated Arts, Grade 6-12, is just down the hill), you’ve got close educational options in one of the highest-rated catchments in Abbotsford.
- Trail mix Abbotsford’s wonderful east-west connector, the Discovery Trail, is a short bike ride away, while other recreation trails will be easily accessible from the Timberlane neighbourhood.
- Pick your workout The multi-faceted Abbotsford Recreation Centre is also a short drive or 10-minute bike ride away. Featuring everything from swimming to skating to fitness training and a multitude of classes, you’ve got a great recreation resource handy. For those fun family days, don’t forget Castle Fun Park is just below!
- Green space abounds While Sumas Mountain is full of rugged and rural areas, the more developed Delair Park, with large and smaller sections, is a short 400-metre walk down Old Yale Road.
- Golf anyone? Timberlane is located a short drive away from McKee Road and Ledgeview Golf and Country Club, training ground of current PGA golfers Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor.
- Keep your pantry filled From grocery shopping to specialty stores to coffee shops, you’re a close walk to a variety of merchants, including Parallel Marketplace (0.7 km south) and Sumas Mountain Village (0.5 km east).
- Jumping off point With Highway 1 access three minutes from your front door, heading east or west quickly is easy, whether it’s Chilliwack and Cultus Lake, Langley or even downtown Vancouver.
