Hadleigh on the Park exudes a charming Coquitlam ambience

0 0

Hadleigh on the Park is a new Polygon development in Coquitlam where Tudor-style architecture featuring steep-sloping gable roofs and wood bracket details give the townhome community a welcoming atmosphere and evokes the charming ambience of the English countryside.

Named for the market town of Hadleigh in Suffolk, the development, designed by Formwerks Architectural, is located on Princeton Avenue (a cul de sac) and opposite Burke Mountain Pioneer Park in Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain neighbourhood.

“It’s a beautiful location in a neighbourhood that is already established; people love being close to the park and the walking trails in the area,” says Goldie Alam, Polygon’s senior vice-president of marketing.

The 88-home development is expected to be most popular with families who want the size and feel of a single-family home, but the convenience of having someone else take care of the yard, Alam says.

There are two show homes open to potential buyers: the Aydon plan and the Carlisle plan. Buyers can choose from two interior design colour schemes, Pearl, which leans toward a traditional style with a few contemporary flourishes, or Onyx, which shows a slight West Coast influence.

In the kitchen, the Pearl scheme features an attention-grabbing antico scuro marble backsplash. The marble – black with delicate touches of grey and beige – is presented in elongated hexagon shape tiles in the full-height backsplash. White painted Shaker-style cabinetry provides an interesting contrast and a grey quartz countertop completes the palette. Throughout the home, the Pearl scheme has white wall paint with grey trim (as seen in the Aydon show home).

In the Onyx option, the creamy white and grey marble in the backsplash is complemented by flat-slab cabinetry, white quartz countertops and grey wall paint with white trim (as seen in the Carlisle show home.)

North Vancouver couple Raein Jamshidi and Nousheen Bastani recently purchased a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home in the development. Jamshidi says they were looking for a forever home.

“We don’t want to move multiple times, so we wanted a home to grow into and as soon as we walked into the [show] home, we loved it,” he says.

After an initial viewing on a Saturday, the couple returned the next day to select a floor plan and colour scheme and bought a home in the first phase of the development.

The couple’s 2,120-square-foot Aydon-plan home with the Pearl scheme features a bedroom and bathroom downstairs – a potential in-law suite – and a formal dining room, living room, large kitchen and family room on the ground level and three bedrooms upstairs.

“The gas cooktop and the gas outlet on the deck for a barbecue are some of my favourite features,” says Jamshidi, who adds the integrated appliances in the kitchen were also on the couple’s wish list.

The Aydon plan is one of three available in the first phase of the development: the others, also named for English towns, are the just-under 2,300-square-foot four-bedroom-and-rec-room Bedford plan; and Carlisle, the 2,346 square foot plan with four bedrooms, four-and-half bathrooms and a rec room.

Alam’s favourite room in the homes is the kitchen.

“They are bright and most have a door to the deck to enhance the indoor/outdoor feel,” she says. “The kitchens are very usable and designed for people to spend time there – families cooking, while kids are doing their homework at the island.”

The appliance package includes an integrated 36-inch Fisher & Paykel refrigerator with french doors and a pullout freezer drawer, a dishwasher (also integrated), a five-burner KitchenAid gas cooktop and a stainless-steel electric wall oven and microwave.

Other features include the undermount double stainless-steel sink with single-lever Grohe faucet and pullout spray, rollout recycling bins, soft-close hardware for all cabinet doors and drawers, plus a pull-out pantry and Lazy Susan in the corner cupboard. The large island (approximately three by seven feet in the Aydon show home) has a waterfall edge and a generous overhang to easily accommodate four comfortable kitchen stools.

The master ensuite bathrooms have a spa-like ambience, says Celia Dawson, senior vice-president interior design for Polygon Interior Design.

“The design is clean and fresh and creates a calm space where you just want to soak in a tub of bubbles – it’s very conducive to that relaxing feeling,” she says.

To achieve that esthetic, Dawson specified quartz countertops and porcelain marble-look floor and wall tiles and a sleek medicine cabinet.

“The vanities with double sinks appear to be floating, giving the rooms a spacious feel, while the soaker tub and shower with frameless glass door, built-in bench seat and the rain shower head and wand all contribute to that spa feel,” she says.

In keeping with the selected scheme, the bathrooms feature the same flat-panel or Shaker-style cabinetry as the kitchens, enhancing a feeling of design continuity throughout the homes. In addition to the master ensuites, there are secondary ensuites with a shower and some third ensuites feature a bathtub.

While engineered wood floors run throughout the main floor living areas, carpets are soft underfoot in the bedrooms.

And there’s a surprise feature in the master bedroom walk-in closet: a built-in wall safe.

“It’s one those things you wouldn’t often think of including, but when you have it, it’s really useful,” Dawson says.

The homes also include laundry rooms with side-by-side front-loading washers and dryers, a countertop for sorting and folding washing and upper cabinets for storage.
