The Victorian-inspired Yukon Residences timeless beauty, both inside and out, are attracting discerning buyers

By Michelle Hopkins Jul 21, 2021

Originally, Susan Chu was looking to purchase a townhome in her Marpole neighbourhood.

Once she discovered Alabaster Homes’ Yukon Residences, she was immediately sold.

“When I heard about the location and then saw the timeless yet contemporary design, I fell in love with Yukon Residences,” says Chu. “I have two dogs, so living across from a park was also very important.”

When it came to the interiors, the kitchen’s chevron backsplash, the stunning views from both the living room and master bedroom, the high-end finishes throughout and the extra storage in the private garage, were equally attractive to Chu.

Tucked away from the iconic Cambie Corridor, you will discover Yukon Residences - an exclusive collection of 32 townhomes and garden homes. Steps from Winona Park, Yukon Residences is down to its final seven homes, three and four-bedroom townhomes, ranging from 1,400 to 1,600 square feet of beautifully curated spaces.

The grandeur and enduring beauty of Yukon Residences’ European architecture design cannot be overstated.  Defined by richly detailed brackets, warm toned brick and arched canopy; while the bay windows, balconies and dormer roofs further offer understated refinement to the homes. Yukon Residences is set to become a landmark in this coveted enclave.

When it came to the interiors, Area3 Design took inspiration from the building’s classic architectural style inside with crown molding details to reflect the Victorian era design, giving it a sophisticated contemporary look. 

In the kitchen, Brenda Chiu, Principal at Area3 Design, says, “the Shaker doors have a slight bevel to the panels, creating a soft, transitional look that sets off the modern lines of the quartz kitchen island. Intricate tiled backsplashes and natural stone features further complement the timeless look and feel of the space.”

This is the newest move-in-ready luxury development from award-winning Alabaster Homes, one of Vancouver’s most respected and lauded developers – one that brings high-end transitional finishes to the forefront. With expansive windows bathing the homes in natural light, nine-foot ceilings and crown mouldings on the main, as well as wide-plank engineered hardwood floors, that attention to detail can be seen throughout.

Chefs and aspiring chefs alike will fall in love with the gourmet kitchens, featuring a Bertazzoni Italia 30” gas range, a Fisher & Paykel integrated French door refrigerator and a Broan 600 CFM hood fan. 

The bright, airy master bedroom is an oasis of serenity, with large walk-in closets, a chic hotel-feel ensuite with large-format tile, Shaker-style beveled cabinets, and a luxe focal point: the deep soaker tub.

For year-round comfort, Yukon Residences features air conditioning, high-efficiency instantaneous hot water heaters, pre-wired security system rough-ins, Magic corner cabinet organizers (select homes), built-in closet organizers and natural gas hookups and hose bibs on each deck and patio space.

In the evening, retreat to the rooftop decks for its jaw-dropping views of Winona Park and the South of Vancouver as backdrops for celebrating with family and friends. 

Situated in one of the city’s most historic enclaves, the Cambie Corridor has grown to become a bustling and sought-after neighbourhood. Perfectly positioned in Vancouver’s west side, this district is blessed with hip restaurants, trendy shops and for sports enthusiasts, is home to Nat Bailey Stadium and to the Hillcrest Community Centre. 

Avid golfers and novices alike will enjoy the close proximity to the Langara Golf Course. A short walk to Cambie Street provides access to transit and the Marine Drive Canada Line Skytrain.
