Last Chance to buy at Zen

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Buyers have always known that Zen in East Clayton is an exceptional development. And now it’s official. Zen has just been nominated for a remarkable four awards in BC’s most prestigious housing awards program, The Ovation Awards. Every year the Greater Vancouver Homebuilders Association celebrates excellence in homebuilding, design & marketing, and has named the finalists in a multitude of categories, Zen was chosen in four of them.

Zen is a finalist for the best kitchen in a multi-family development. According to developer Zenterra, the kitchens at Zen represent the largest kitchens in a multifamily development in the Metro Vancouver area. Kitchens in the four bedroom townhomes measure a huge 16’ x 16, and include lots of highly sought after features like five burner gas cooktops, double wall ovens, quartz countertops, glass backsplash and custom shaker style cabinetry. Most units also feature a 4 x 4 island with an optional built in wine fridge.

From the high quality 39oz carpet throughout the upper floors, to the 2’ wide window blinds and the 9’ high ceilings, it’s evident from the moment you step in the door that it’s the attention to detail that makes the difference. The story doesn’t stop there, all the bathrooms at Zen feature quartz countertops, and under cabinet lighting, while master bathrooms also include double-wide glass showers and luxurious warming towel rails. A unique feature that always gets attention is the ‘Makeup Vanity’ that provides extra counter space for cosmetic and wellness items, plus an additional four electrical outlets. Because our West Coast lifestyle means we spend so much of our time outdoors, Zen is designed to make the most of it.

The thoughtful landscaping includes open green spaces with walkways that are perfect for that after dinner stroll. With full natural gas barbeque hookups Zen gives the chef in the family a chance to show off their culinary skills while friends and family relax on the oversized 8 x 20 sundecks.

Parking is easy too, with double, and tandem garages and lots of visitor parking for those memorable family gatherings.

Other kinds of entertainment are catered for as well. The Zenterra Signature Entertainment Wall features a custom Italian stone finished fi replace, and offers all the interconnectivity options that today’s buyers demand.

Despite the feeling of tranquility that living at Zen provides, the location couldn’t be more convenient. Within a few minutes’ drive there are literally hundreds of shopping options, from quaint sidewalk cafes to Willowbrook Mall and Costco.

Zen has also been nominated for three of the most prestigious Ovation Awards, Best Townhouse Development, Best Marketing Campaign and Multi-Family Home Builder of the Year. Winners will be announced on April 26th.

The final phase of Zen has been released to the market with 3 bedroom and 3 bedrooms and flex room tandem homes starting from just $345,900.

Zen’s showhome is located at 196 Street and 66 Ave and is open every day (including Fridays) between 12 and 5pm.

With their unique features and affordable pricing the remaining homes at Zen are sure to sell fast. To arrange a personal tour please call 604-355-0166. FIN
