As much as Angela Ross likes living in downtown Vancouver, she was ready to sell her 20-year-old small condo for something new and larger. Having grown up in Port Moody, Ross decided to search in her old ‘hood.
“I looked at other projects out there but Clyde’s finishes were a lot nicer,” says Ross. “The condos are so stunning and bright. I also like the great amenities, including the gym and the courtyard with fire pits, which really encourages a sense of community.”
Ross bought a 900-square-foot two-bedroom and den condo on the third floor, which offers views of the growing city, and she couldn’t be happier. “I think Port Moody is an underrated gem … you have easy Skytrain access, nearby lakes and hiking trails and it still has that small-town feel with big-city amenities,” says Ross.
Clyde is an impeccable collection of 117 one, two and three-bedroom homes starting at $439,900 for a one-bedroom. Designed by award-winning Ross & Company, each home features herringbone flooring in the main living areas, 8’ to 10’ ceiling height throughout with oversized windows bathing the homes in natural light.
Soak up your worries in your deluxe deep soaker tub, before heading into your gourmet kitchen to start dinner. Here, you will fall in love with the woodgrain detailed open shelving, the island breakfast bar for extra seating (in most homes), Quartz countertops and porcelain tile backsplash and high-end stainless-steel appliance package.
Ross’ sentiments are echoed often by those who have already bought in Clyde, says Emily Paris, marketing coordinator, Porte Communities. “Buyers have told us they love both Clyde’s location and finishes, bridging the gap between luxury and attainability,” says Paris.
After an exhilarating day on the trails, kick back with friends and family on your generous-sized deck or around the indoor social lounge that extends onto the courtyard for parties – a fully landscaped courtyard with a BBQ area, fire pit and space for children to play and dogs to roam. Or hit the fully-equipped fitness centre for a great workout. Everything is possible at Clyde.
“All homes at Clyde have expansive patios and the sixth-floor homes feature stunning private rooftop patios with great views - these homes are what patio dreams are made of!” says Paris.
To make it even sweeter, Porte Homes is offering a limited-time promotion of $10,000 off two-bedroom homes and $15,000 off three-bedroom homes.
This former “lumber and mill town” has morphed into an affordable, hip and active community, all while embracing its rich heritage. With over one-third of the city’s 25.89 square kilometres dedicated to parkland, people are attracted to its outdoorsy lifestyle.
Beer lovers rejoice too. Where can you visit five breweries on a three-block stretch of the same street? Well, you can at Brewer’s Row.
For more than five decades, Porte Homes doesn’t just develop or manage properties, they build communities. They are also a Vancouver-based, family-owned company with heart. “We have partnered with the Breakfast Club of Canada which means that for every home sold at Clyde, we are able to help feed a child for 50 days through a breakfast program at a local elementary school in Port Moody. We are always excited to be able to support the communities we build in,” says Paris.
Clyde presentation centre, located at 2545 Clarke St., Port Moody, is open by appointment only. For more information about the promotion or to register, call 604-949-3454, email [email protected] or visit www.clyde.porte.ca.
