On a gentle, sloping hill, with views towards the mountains, in the rapidly growing South Surrey neighbourhood of Grandview Heights, is where you will discover OLIVIA. This is a boutique-style offering of 37 townhomes, many of which boast fabulous views.

“What makes OLIVIA distinctive is that it feels like its tucked away yet set within an established family-orientated neighbourhood, all the while providing a sense of privacy,” says Jessica Radziszewska, marketing manager Woodbridge Properties. “This is a real hidden gem in South Surrey.”

Designed by award-winning Barnett Dembek Architects, these elegant Craftsman-inspired residences offer a seamless blend of traditional and contemporary architecture. OLIVIA’s open-concept homes feature wide-plank laminate wood flooring throughout entries and main living areas, overheight nine-foot high ceilings, forced-air electric heating, white shaker-style cabinetry and master bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, as well as private patios and spacious backyards for entertaining family and friends.

Capitalizing on the success of OLIVER townhomes, OLIVIA features many of the finishes that attracted buyers to OLIVER.

“We launched OLIVER, which was a collection of 57 townhouses, in mid-February and it sold out very quickly,” adds Radziszewska. “The feedback was so positive and the response so overwhelming that we wanted our next collection of homes to provide our buyers with the same features that made the original community so desirable. With that mindset, the concept for OLIVIA was born, located only a stone’s throw away from OLIVER.”

The contemporary, open-concept homes, ranging from 1,400 to 2,100 square feet, feature thoughtful design for comfort and ease, such as: expansive energy-efficient windows, forced-air natural gas heating, an upper-floor linen closet and generous kitchen pantries.

The larger, 2000-plus-square-foot north-facing homes will boast side-by-side garages with additional two-car parking on driveways as well as sizable recreation rooms that can be converted into a ground-floor fourth bedroom. Meanwhile, the south-side 1,400-square-foot homes will have a walk-out backyard off of the main level, ideal for those with pets/children or anyone who will appreciate an extension of their living space.

“All of the homes areideal for families with young or mature children or other family members living with them,” adds Radziszewska.

In order to establish a greater sense of community, OLIVIA will create a natural outdoor space with community gardens as well as an indoor amenities building for entertaining and relaxing with neighbours.
