Bassi Properties’ new townhome development in North Delta features plans with either three or four bedrooms and up to 2,342 square feet.
A typical floor plan in a new townhome development in the Lower Mainland can sometimes be a somewhat narrow affair, with perhaps two or three bedrooms and a maximum size of about 1,600 square feet. But the townhomes at Cyrus Hill are anything but typical. Bassi Properties’ new townhome development in North Delta features plans with either three or four bedrooms and up to 2,342 square feet.
“The homes at Cyrus Hill are pretty large,” said Hardeep Bassi, vice-president at Bassi Properties. “We were conscious that growing families often want more space and when downsizers move from a bigger home, they don’t want to feel cramped. The four-bedroom plans feel very house-like. They have double garages, walk-in pantries, side-by-side laundries, double sinks and full closet organizers.”
With three young children, Nick Nashar said the extra space was a big part of the reason he and his wife decided to buy a home at Cyrus Hill.
“They’re offering a lot more space for the price, so we feel like we’re getting a lot more for our money with these guys,” Nashar said. “It’s also close to the school we want to send the kids to and then you have all the amenities nearby.”
“Right now, we’re in Surrey, but it’s getting very busy there,” Nashar added. “Even though the commute time for me will only be about 10 or 15 minutes less each way, that actually makes quite a big difference when you add it up over a week.
Bassi is eager to point out that the Cyrus Hill site is within a very walkable community.
“It’s a great location in terms of access to shopping and outdoor recreation,” Bassi said. “There’s a great trail network, so we see a lot of hikers, bikers and dog-owners. The highway is just down the street so you can be in Richmond in 15 minutes or Vancouver in 25 minutes.”
Kitchens come with bevelled Shaker-style cabinets, soft-closing doors and drawers, quartz stone countertops and under-cabinet task lighting.
Bathrooms feature quartz countertops with coordinated tiles, under-cabinet kick lighting, two undermount sinks and showers with frameless glass doors.
“We include features here that would normally be considered extras and that other developers would charge buyers more to install,” said Bassi. “The biggest thing for us is focusing on a high-quality product at an affordable price.”
Trust in the developer was never an issue for Nashar when buying a home at Cyrus Hill. The Surrey native had recently bought a condo from Bassi Properties and knew that they took pride in the quality of their products and the finishes within their homes.
The first phase of homes at Cyrus Hill, scheduled to be completed this fall, is about 80 per cent sold out, even before the grand opening event for the presentation centre scheduled for Saturday. The second phase should be complete by the spring of 2020.
