Sardis Chilliwack

August 30, 2011

Sardis is located just south of Chilliwack on the road to Cultus Lake, a popular vacation destination. Historically a quiet agricultural community, Sardis's growth has brought a number of commercial developments to the area.

Proximity to the highway has made Sardis a prime location for retailers, but the location also makes it a convenient, desirable destination for families on-the-go, commuters traveling between Chilliwack and Abbotsford, or those traveling east into the Interior.

Sardis's growth is reflected in the significant amount of housing built since 1986 almost one and a half times the volume of older stock. Single-family housing dominates, with the remainder split almost equally between townhomes and apartments. Outlying areas have attractive acreages with views of Mount Vedder and Mount Baker.
