An oceanfront townhome development 14-years in the making is launching its tenth and final phase of sales on the heels of record-breaking demand in 2020.
Sooke’s Heron View community overlooking Sooke Harbour from the 6900-block of Nordin Road (near Whiffin Spit Road) sold-out of available inventory in phases seven
, with only one home remaining in phase nine
, amid shifts in real-estate trends brought on by COVID-19.
“2020 was by far our best year of sales with 21 townhomes sold, toppling our previous record of nine sales over a twelve month period,” said Heron View’s Project Manager, Bob Vaughan. “Our strategy has been to take a slow and steady approach to home construction at Heron View, but in 2020 we found ourselves unable to keep up with demand as purchasers gave larger homes and suburban locations more consideration.”
Upon build-out of phase 10
, Heron View will be comprised of 91 oceanside townhomes only a short stroll from Sooke’s commercial core and the popular Whiffin Spit nature area. Construction on the final nine-units has begun as the ninth phase nears its scheduled May completion.
Phase 10's homes range in size from just over 1,600 square feet to over 1,700 square feet and are priced from the mid-$600,000s, representing a significant price advantage over comparable offerings elsewhere in the region priced from the high $700,000s. Layouts feature dual car garages in duplex or triplex building footprints.
“Bright, spacious and accessible design has been at the forefront of our harbourside residences since day one,” says Vaughan. “You will not find this level of designer real-estate anywhere in the Capital Region that is on the water’s edge, is as well apportioned as are Heron View’s offerings, and at the price points we are able to deliver.”
With the sales launch of the last phase only days in, one home has already sold and multiple offers are pending, Vaughan confirms.
As one of the most unique townhome projects on southern Vancouver Island, Heron View has an expansive mix of amenities to keep residents active and engaged, its location is close to Sooke’s town centre and sits along a frequent bus route, and outdoor activities are a short walk or drive away. In addition to an on-site swimming pool and a tennis court, residents can also enjoy amenities like a fitness gym, a hot tub, a crafts room and a fire pit overlooking Sooke Harbour.
“Our residents can attest to the sense of community that has been built here, where everyone gets to know their neighbours as they take part in socializing activities within our amenity areas, and as they stay active on the tennis court or at the outdoor pool. And you don’t feel confined to your neighbourhood as you can stroll into town if you’d like, take a walk to the beautiful Whiffin Spit, or hop into the car and explore the vastness of the natural areas beyond Sooke along Highway 14. But that aside, the head-turner is our pricing, which is the most competitive among all pre-sale offerings in Greater Victoria.”
Each home’s interior design options, professionally procured and available in two west coast-inspired colour themes, yield ample choice for finishings and accents.
Kitchens are adorned with rich wood or European-styled cabinetry while quartz stone countertops create impressive focal statements. Deluxe stainless steel appliances give these dining and entertaining spaces a sophisticated feel.
Bathrooms are designed for modern convenience with opulent accents that include designer elements, deep soaker tubs and full vanity mirrors with elegant light bars.
Two-car garages make the most of an accessory space with plenty of accommodation for vehicles or for use as a flex area.
“When designing these townhomes, we opted for larger floor plans over two levels in lieu of the more traditional three or four level layouts,” Vaughan said. “This makes transitioning across the home so much easier, and especially for parents or grandparents with young children, not having that additional floor of separation can be quite helpful.”
Located along the 6900-block of Nordin Road off Whiffen Spit Road, Heron View’s central yet private setting gives residents the option of walking to the town’s grocery stores and restaurants (which includes the Wild Mountain restaurant that has garnered much praise among south Island foodies and the oceanfront West Coast Grill at the Prestige Hotel), is close to oceanside walking trails, parks and beaches, and even a year-round golf course is only moments away. Two elementary schools, a middle school and a high school are all within easy reach by transit which runs from the early morning hours to late-night throughout the town and into downtown Victoria.
