HOMEFINDER: Phase Two of Paradise Falls to sell soon

Pricing hasn’t been established yet, but Phase One sold from $439,000 to $569,000

New homes in Phase Two in the Paradise Falls development in Westhills are set to go on the market March 25. Although pricing hasn’t been finalized, Phase Two will offer up single family homes of approximately 2,100 sq. ft. featuring custom appliances, quartz countertops and a geothermal heating and cooling system.

The Paradise Falls development consists of six phases and will contain about 135 single-family homes, 13 townhouses and six small footprint homes upon completion, said Rob Muller, marketing and construction coordinator for Westhills.

Prices for single-family homes in Phase One ranged from  $439,000 to $569,000 for the 12 single-family homes, 13 townhouses and six small footprint homes in that phase. Sales have been brisk, with only single-family home left after Phase One went on the market in October, Muller said.

Phase Two will include upgrades not included in Phase one, Muller noted.

Construction began on Paradise Falls, part of the larger scale Westhills master plan community, in 2014. Information on the Lakepoint phase, which will include mixed use residential and retail, will be unveiled in the near future,

Westhills appeals to families because of the close proximity to trails, City Centre Park and shopping amenities such as Capital Iron, Cascadia Liquor and Quality Foods, all within walking distance, Muller said The new YM-YWCA Aquatic Centre, scheduled to open in the spring of next year, will add another key recreational component.

“The Westhills focus is on community,” Muller said. “We have a master plan that separates us from other developments on the West Shore.”

Q: Is growth slowing down in Langford?

Residential growth in Langford continues at a healthy pace with a mix of housing options available.

Limona Developments is developing properties on Happy Valley Road that will offer smaller size single-family homes.

There are plenty of subdivisions currently under construction as well, including more conventional size detached single family homes on Latoria Road.

Complementing the current upturn are a number of rental projects under way, including three on Hockley Avenue, one on Station Avenue near Jacklin Road and another on Peatt Road, adding to the one recently completed on Granderson Road, meaning that there will soon be many more options for both renters and buyers to take advantage of.

If you just drive around  for a while within the boundaries of Langford, any questions you may have about whether the growth is slowing will soon be answered.

The whole West Shore region is booming just now, and it doesn’t look like it will reach its plateau for a while yet.
