Morningstar Homes has an excellent track record for building spectacular single-family homes, including nine neighbourhoods on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain, and are one of the largest single-family builders in the area with nearly 2,000 homes built to date. Now they are heading out to Maple Ridge to showcase their expertise with their latest project, The Summit at Grant Hill.
“These are some of our best designs ever,” says Deborah Calahan, vice-president of sales and marketing at Morningstar. “Add to that the scenic backdrop of the Golden Ears Mountains and it’s just magical.”
In fact, Calahan notes that she’s already had a lot of people contacting her wanting more information about the project, or to purchase a home immediately.
“We’re thrilled at the response to our homes,” she says. “We’re bringing our best ideas from Burke Mountain to Maple Ridge … and adding some new twists.”
They also have Robertson Heights coming soon to Maple Ridge, with an expected opening in early September.
“Maple Ridge is a new area for us, full of natural beauty,” Calahan says. “Here, we’ve created new designs that address the stunning views and natural surroundings and blend with the uniqueness of the neighbourhood.”
In this case, it is sprawling estate homes with three-car garages and huge windows to capture the maximum amount of views and nature possible!
The Summit at Grant Hill will feature 26 four-bedroom luxury homes on 1/2 acre homesites with large, private backyards perfect for a hot tub, basketball court or pool. It’s up to you! The lush greenery surrounding the homes adds to the sense of peace you’ll feel as soon as you enter your new home, and the views of the mountains and blue skies are simply stunning.
Inside, the vaulted ceilings, gorgeous kitchens and relaxing bedrooms are designed to impress, and Morningstar is offering plenty of options for customizing your home, from exterior gable lighting to a master bedroom sitting room.
Windows are always a big thing in a Morningstar home, and that continues at The Summit at Grant Hill. This time, they’ve included walls of windows to let the natural light pour in and take advantage of the views and natural surroundings.
Morningstar has built two show homes for buyers to visit before choosing their floorplan.
“We take the guess-work out, by providing show homes that are tangible examples of what your home will be like,” says Calahan. “Prospective purchasers can walk through the show homes and choose which floorplan is right for them!”
Buyers at any Morningstar project are assured of great customer service as well as the peace of mind in knowing that they are purchasing from a reputable builder who will stand behind the homes they sell. In fact, Calahan notes that she often sees buyers looking at a Morningstar home after a friend or family member purchases one.
“Word-of-mouth is our best form of advertising,” she says. “We’ve found the secret recipe for making homeowners happy.”
Buyers will certainly be happy with their home at The Summit at Grant Hill.
“This is definitely going to be a winner for us,” says Calahan. “We are building luxury homes on large scenic properties at great prices; now that’s something that you don’t see every day!”
Purchasing a new home can be stressful, but Morningstar always endeavors to take the stress out of home-buying experience (that is the Morningstar Promise after all!), making it easy for you to sit back and enjoy the process.
Morningstar is holding a grand opening of The Summit at Grant Hill on July 12, starting at noon. Calahan urges interested buyers to pre-register, which will give you earlier access to purchase one of the homes. The sales centre is located at 25465 Godwin Drive, Maple Ridge, and homes will start at $690,000 plus GST.
