A Beautiful Collection of Traditional Homes
Tucked away on a quiet, residential street in Burnside Gorge, Washington is collection of 34 traditionally-inspired 2-, 3-, and 4-bedroom townhomes by Formwell Homes. These 2- and 3-storey residences celebrate traditional form with Craftsman-inspired detailing, pitched roofs, and gable architecture. Landscaped paths lead to each classically-designed home, surrounded by wood picket fences that frame private yards. Washington Green is a community common where kids can play while adults socialize on benches under the canopy of large mature trees.
Washington offers the relaxed pace of neighbourhood living, surrounded by parks and outdoor space. Steps away from Cecelia Ravine Park and close to the Selkirk Waterfront and the Burnside Gorge Community Centre, there’s plenty to see and do close to home. The nearby Galloping Goose Regional Trail is a popular bikeway that offers you car-free convenience to quickly get to where you need to go without having to worry about traffic, parking, or gas. Mayfair, Uptown, and Tillicum shopping centres are all less than 10-minutes away by bike. And whether you’re commuting downtown to work or meeting friends for a night on the town, take your pick of bike, bus, or car and you’re there in less than 15 minutes.
