If you thought living like you’re on vacation year round in Vancouver was impossible, grab your swimsuit and clubs and head 30 minutes out to the brand new golf resort Tsawwassen Springs, a 137-acre “hole-in-one.”
“You basically never have to leave — we’ve got it all,” says Sarah Toigo, Tsawwassen Springs’ sales and marketing director. “You work hard — it’s about bringing that resort lifestyle home.”
A beautiful golf course with lush vegetation, a high-tech golf academy, and a 32,000-square-foot amenities building, for fitness, yoga, pilates and physiotherapy, together create a healthy living environment perfect for baby-boomers looking to downsize and young professionals eager to take a breath from city life. With top private school South Pointe Academy nearby, it’s equally nourishing for families.
It’s not paradise by chance, as Tsawwassen is three times sunnier than the rest of Vancouver. It’s “like a hole in the sky — a blue sky over Tsawwassen,” says Toigo. Their perfect climate invites tanning and dipping at one of the surrounding beaches, crabbing, bicycling or taking walks into town to watch the sunset, where you can sip a glass of wine and nibble on fresh calamari. “We’ve got this small town charm, but big city proximity,” says Toigo.
The property also boasts the largest ballroom in the area, at 6300 square feet, with a capacity of 500 people. They’ve already hosted fundraisers and events attended by NHL legend Bobby Orr and crooner Michael Bublé, and, with the vibrant surroundings, it’s the perfect place for couples to tie the knot.
What’s equally attractive is its unrivaled value. It’s freehold land, meaning you’re not leasing for 99 years, you actually own the land forever. And because it’s still hidden from the mainstream market, for $500,000, for example, you’ll land a 1000-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath Tsawwassen Springs property, about double the space you’d get downtown.
Opened in 2011, they’ve already sold out in the first two of four condo construction phases and the first five of nine home construction phases, making now the time to buy into this sublime community, whether you’re looking to live there or simply invest.
