Maplewood Place:
Your Kind of Home

Looking for a family-friendly neighbourhood where you’re just minutes from a diverse array of urban amenities, yet you’re surrounded by lush, green forest? A community of elegant townhomes with plenty of space for your family, at a price you can afford? Well say hello to Maplewood Place in North Vancouver — a collection of 61 townhomes that’s amazing savvy homebuyers with its North Shore style, versatile floorplans, and one-of-a-kind location adjacent to the famous Maplewood Farm.


Love the Location

“This is such a cool part of North Vancouver — a true hidden gem that once you discover, you want to hang onto,” says Peter Edmonds, director of marketing with Anthem Properties, adding that new townhomes are virtually impossible to find here.

Best of all, it’s a neighbourhood that’s connected to — well, everything. “Families love how close Maplewood Place is to everything — great schools, rec centres, restaurants.” He points to the west. “About a three-minute walk over there is a wonderful neighbourhood shopping centre with coffee shops, a liquor store, restaurants, and soon Metro Vancouver’s second Stong’s Market — anyone who’s been to their Westside Vancouver store knows what an amazing grocery Stong’s is. You’re half a block to a park along the Seymour River, you can be on the Second Narrows Bridge in about five minutes, and if you’re craving one of the best avocado on toast sandwiches going, just head over to Café Orso in Deep Cove.”


Celebrate Your Good Taste

With five distinct floorplans available, Maplewood Place really does have something for every lifestyle. First there’s a single-level, two-bedroom with open great rooms and two patios — one front, one back. Or check out the traditional two-level, stacked plans featuring two bedrooms upstairs and comfortable main-floor living below. Maplewood Place even offers one bedroom homes — particularly appealing to first time buyers and young singles.

Then there’s the E Plan, a design Peter says is one of Maplewood Place’s most unique. At a single glance it’s easy to understand why. This three-level beauty redefines the kitchen as “heart of the home” — a centrally located culinary hub featuring composite quartz counters, stainless steel appliances, and enough storage to satisfy even the most demanding chef. The display home also showcases white Shaker cabinetry with black matte pulls, one of the two colour schemes available and an eye-catching detail unlike anything I’ve seen before.

The second floor is where you’ll find two generously sized bedrooms for the kids, the main bathroom, genuine laundry room with side-by-side washer/dryer, and… a door at the bottom of asecond fight of stairs. “We really did save the best for last,” Peter says with enthusiasm.

Arriving on the top floor is definitely one of those “aha” moments. More than a master suite, this room spans the entire floor and is a true retreat designed exclusively for mum and dad. Want a few hints? Okay, try these: massive walk-in closet, ensuite with spacious shower and double vanity, room for a king-sized bed as well as extra large night tables, and my favourite, a flex-space with door. Sure that extra room would be great for a home office as it’s shown, but my mind’s already wandering in different directions — library, a place to put the stationary bike or treadmill, even a hobby room for those with more crafting skills than I possess. After all, choice is always good.


Value You Can Count On

“Maplewood Place offers terrific affordability and long term investment potential,” Peter says. “It’s an emerging neighbourhood, you’re buying new so you have the peace of mind that comes from having a new home warrantee, and you’re getting all the design and style you’d expect from a single-family home.” Sounds like win-win all around.
