February Founder’s Message – Welcome to Horseshoe by Westbank
As spring approaches on our beautiful West Coast, I would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to Horseshoe Bay by Westbank. VIRANI is offering exclusive access to this luxury resort-style village that is Metro Vancouver’s last true waterfront development.
Designed by internationally renowned local architect Paul Merrick, Horseshoe Bay by Westbank features the best of West Coast Modern architecture. Spectacular waterfront views of Howe Sound, leading-edge design, all-concrete construction and first-class amenities highlight this extraordinary project by Westbank, one of North America’s leading residential developers.
Elegant interiors and exteriors are inspired by the natural surroundings and all materials and finishes are carefully selected to reflect the environment. Over-height ceilings, polished quartz countertops, teak vanities and wide wood plank flooring are found throughout these gorgeous homes. With six unique low-profile buildings located on the sheltered shores of Horseshoe Bay and nestled into the surrounding mountainside, this development offers outstanding value in a world-class location.
Conveniently situated only 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver, Horseshoe Bay is the jewel of West Vancouver. Recreational activities such as sailing, fishing, hiking, diving and skiing are within minutes. Whistler-Blackcomb is an hour’s drive up the scenic Sea to Sky Highway. Year-round golfing is 20 minutes away at Gleneagles and Furry Creek golf courses.
There is also a fully-equipped fitness facility and a boat house with a deluxe 25-foot Chris-Craft powerboat available to the new strata residents – complete with a skipper, gas and insurance. The boat house also includes a gathering hall that is an ideal venue for pilates workshops, wine-tastings or sailing skills demonstrations. Upstairs, there is a resident’s lounge and an additional casual area so you can watch the passing harbor vessels or chat with your neighbours.
And thanks to the project team’s $10 million amenity and community contribution, the nearby Horseshoe Bay Park will receive numerous upgrades, including more green space, playground improvements and a plaza for concerts and festivals. A new seawalk will provide unprecedented access to the Howe Sound foreshore, stretching from the B.C. Ferry Terminal, past the new Sewell’s Marina, up to Madrona Island.
Now is an excellent time to purchase a home as interest rates are still at record lows. Metro Vancouver residents recently received their 2022 B.C. Property Assessments, which do not reflect true market value as the tax assessed amounts are often significantly less. Call one of our experienced VIRANI advisors today to receive a complimentary comparative market analysis. You may be surprised to discover your home’s actual value and what you can afford to purchase.
Prices continue to edge higher across Metro Vancouver. Last month’s sales were 25.3% above the 10-year average. The MLS Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $1,255,200, an 18.5% increase over January 2021.
VIRANI has approximately 20 homes left at Horseshoe Bay with completion quickly approaching. There will never be a waterfront living opportunity quite like this again. Horseshoe Bay by Westbank is West Vancouver’s most beautiful block of waterfront land with its panoramic views of the stunning shores and beyond to the alpine peaks along Howe Sound.
Located close to Whistler, the Sunshine Coast and a myriad of other world-class recreational amenities, Horseshoe Bay is at the hub of one of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. Inspired by the picturesque Italian Riviera town of Portofino, this unique Westbank development offers the rare opportunity to live beside pristine nature, while having all the advantages of a cosmopolitan, urban city nearby.
With more than $25 billion of real estate projects constructed or currently under development, Westbank has consistently led its markets. Horseshoe Bay offers an excellent opportunity to live in one of the most innovative and outstanding developments currently available in Canada. We invite you to call our experienced VIRANI advisors today to receive exclusive access to the very best of elegant west coast living.
