Families moving up from smaller homes have a new option in South Surrey, where Foxridge Homes is developing a collection of four- and five-bedroom residences that offer buyers the opportunity to put down roots in the flourishing Grandview Heights subdivision and select their choice of floor plan and finishes.

The 62-lot Edgestone is expected to attract move-up buyers who have sold a townhouse, condo or a smaller single-family home, says Diane Zarola, director of sales and marketing for Foxridge Homes.

One of nine available floor plans, the 3,370-square-foot show home (the Glenmore plan) has a two-car garage, four bedrooms on the upper floor and a fully finished basement with a fifth bedroom, which could be finished as a suite.

The Glenmore’s flex room at the entry can be designated for many purposes – perhaps an office or den – but in this presentation, a wine bar and comfortable seating allows the space to double as an entertainment area or a quiet place to settle down with a book.

In the kitchen, a rectangular bulkhead and LED light fixture above the nine-by three-foot island adds some drama, while also subtly defining this section of the open-concept main living space.

The soft grey cabinet colour complements the white and grey quartz countertops, while the full-height white ceramic tile backsplash keeps the space feeling fresh and bright.

The major appliances are by Bosch, and a double bowl under-mount stainless steel sink is in the island, along with the dishwasher.

The dining area comfortably accommodates a large dining table, while a built-in hutch and a convenient under-counter wine cooler maximize functionality. The built-in is an optional upgrade for buyers who do not own a dining hutch, Zarola says.

Large windows on the open-concept main floor and the 19-foot ceiling make the space feel open and airy. The upper floor, meantime, comprises the master bedroom and ensuite bathroom, three additional bedrooms, the main bathroom and laundry room.

In the master bedroom, a wall of shiplap supports the modern farmhouse theme, while the ensuite features a luxurious free-standing tub, shower with glass enclosure and a vanity with double under-mount sinks. Just off the ensuite, the walk-in closet includes closet organizers.

The basement comprises a fifth bedroom, full bathroom and a walk-out to the backyard garden. While it can be completed as a suite, in the show home it is the place where prospective buyers can find the Foxridge Design Centre containing the myriad colours, materials and finishes homeowners can choose from to customize their new home.

Unlike many developments that present a choice of design schemes – each with fixed materials and finishes – Foxridge’s process gives buyers a wide range of options, including everything from the shade of engineered hardwood flooring, cabinetry colours and countertops to the stone on the exterior of the West Coast-inspired architecture.
