Learn to Drive? Why?

Central Lonsdale Lisa Gordon

Why?  I don’t have time … and I don’t need a car, I walk everywhere” says the current homeowner and her daughter.  “We’ve always enjoyed being able to walk across the street to daycare, then Queen Mary Elementary School.”  A total of 11 years of access to daily child care and education practically at their doorstep.

Queen Mary is highly sought after for its International Baccalaureate (IB Program) and has been newly renovated and seismically upgraded.  The family’s youngest child who recently graduated from Carson Graham Sr. Secondary has also been completely renovated has an emphasis on academic learning.

“The best part about living here are the neighbours!”  is the first great quality the homeowners described of living at The Beeches, a cluster of 29 townhomes in Central Lonsdale.  Extremely well cared for, $340K earmarked in the Contingency Reserve Fund by end of 2017 Beeches is a fiscally responsible strata.  The large townhomes allow pets, some rentals (6) and have 1 designated parking stall with the potential to request a 2nd stall for your use upon availability at no charge.   There have been no sales to report in over 2 years at The Beeches. The reason for lack of turn-over is because once you discover the large size of these townhomes at over 1900 square feet – it’s pretty hard to compare to anything else.  You’re already home!

With Lions Gate Hospital just blocks away, as a wind-down from her busy workday, it’s easy to stop in at one of several local green grocers to prepare dinner.  “I think I’ve saved thousands of dollars over the years by being able to shop locally and lookfor bargains on my grocery bill!” says the owner.  “I admit, I miss my Safeway at 13th & Chesterfield. But I’m also looking forward to the new Whole Foods and we really don’t eat much that isn’t fresh anymore since my husband joined Weight Watchers!” she adds.
