The seaview residences at the cruise-ship-inspired Fantom in White Rock offer timeless luxury, space and light
Imagine waking up to fabulous sunrises and commanding ocean views in your own getaway in the heart of arguably one of the most coveted oceanfront communities – White Rock. You can at the city’s newest condominium development by award-winning Forge Properties. Welcome to Fantom, an elegantly appointed 10-storey concrete building showcasing 25 exclusive residences.
Curvaceous and sleek, the exterior is reminiscent of cruise ships of yesteryear.
“We took our inspiration from those mighty sea vessels from the past,” says Cory Saran, one of the principals at Forge Properties. “Prospective buyers are taken by the unique architecture. There are three homes on each floor and they are all south-facing. While some buyers get to choose between morning or evening sun, the prestigious Spectre homes get it all, with expansive wrap-around patios beholding gorgeous ocean views.”
Fantom is attracting a lot of attention, including from downsizers, who still want the comforts of home but not the maintenance.
“Fantom is literally a building of penthouses … all the things people love about a house are here, without having to mow the lawn,” says Saran. “We took all the things that made Royce so desirable and expanded on that (Royce won seven Georgie awards and a National award for best mid- to high-rise building).”
Thoughtfully designed by Ankenman and Associates Architects, with help from Forge’s in-house interior design team, the contemporary open-concept floor plans, ranging from 1,500 to 2,200 square feet, feature finishes such as engineered-hardwood flooring, oversized floor-to-ceiling windows, HVAC heat and cooling systems, porthole windows in the ensuites, and a sleek marble-encased linear double-sided gas fireplace.
Aspiring cooks and experienced chefs alike will love the kitchens with their floor-to-ceiling cabinets, generous islands (10 feet by 3.5 feet) with shimmering pendant lighting, a Thermador appliance package, and modern undermount sinks. Residents can also choose to upgrade their stainless-steel appliance package to the exclusive Gaggeneau line.
Just a short drive to the Peace Arch border, only 30 minutes to YVR airport, and minutes from the shoreline trails of White Rock’s West Beach, Fantom offers the best of both worlds with both urban and natural conveniences nearby.
In addition, Fantom is close to the Shops at Morgan Crossing, which is the shopping centre of choice for homeowners. This upscale shopping centre boasts chic urban shops and boutiques as well as restaurants – ideal for people-watching and for meeting good friends over a cup of artisan java.
Besides its picturesque location and panoramic views of the ocean, Fantom is dedicating the whole first floor to an exclusive resident-only amenity facility. It will be showcased by a fitness centre with yoga studio and spa, and an outdoor terrace. It will also boast a lounge with kitchen and media room to entertain family and friends.
With more than three decades of building excellence, Forge Properties is a boutique-style builder with a passion for beautifully designed, functional homes.
“We love what what we do, and are committed to the pride and enjoyment of our homeowners,” adds Saran. “We have a committed in-house graphic and interior design team that’s strives for the balance between form and function, ensuring the look, feel and use of our homes is both genuine and inspired.”
With prices starting from $1,198,900, Fantom is truly West Coast living at its best. This is your opportunity to live in a new home that offers exceptional quality both inside and out, by a local family-owned builder you can trust. The sales office is open by appointment only. Tentative occupancy is slated for fall/winter of 2020.
