Vancouver Island’s demand for Laned Homes is becoming more sought-after and for good reason. We are seeing many first-time home buyers and downsizers head to Royal Bay in Colwood to embrace this affordable style of home. Showcased by detached garages in the back of the home, GableCraft Homes designs offer the privacy of a detached home at a more affordable price.

5 Things We Love About Lane Homes

1) Choice: GableCraft Homes offers a number of thoughtfully designed open concept models in several Royal Bay phases – all designed for young families in mind. Best of all, GableCraft allows you to personalize your home with several upgrades – ensuring your home will reflect your unique personality. With wonderous designs and luxury finishes, GableCraft’s Corrigan, Carlisle, Hendon, Shelton and Westwick designs are just some of the Laned Homes that are peaking the interest of many.

2) The traditional curb appeal: While some homebuyers absolutely love the aesthetics and convenience of a home with a front attached garage; others prefer the more traditional look that Laned Homes provide. It is also a fact that a standalone garage can enhance the curb appeal of your home. While some people might perceive that a detached garage is a lesser product, in actuality, the quality is the same as an attached one.

3) Affordable Prices: Laned homes offer great living space for a great price point. On average, Laned Homes are more affordable than front garage homes. What’s not to like about more privacy, improved curb appeal and better pricing?

4) Your pick of Lot within Royal Bay: GableCraft Homes makes it easy to get into a Laned Home. Whether you are looking for the serenity of fronting onto a forest or perhaps living closer to great schools or within a few minutes to all of the various amenities, you will find your perfect Laned Home.

5) The beauty of separation: Another big plus? If you don’t own a car, you can convert your detached garage into living space, or to store “stuff.” There’s no end to the common advantages of having a detached garage.

For More Information

Whether you are considering either a Lane or Front Drive design, GableCraft has a variety of options, some of which are Quick Possession while even others offer 1 and 2 bedroom suites as Mortgage Helpers. Check with the Sales Team for more information.

GableCraft Homes’ master-planned community designed with front and laned garage homes

B.C.’s topography lends itself to an untold tally of residential developments in pockets of waterfront communities throughout the province. However, not all are created equal.

On the southern tip of Vancouver Island, you know you’ve found an extraordinary opportunity when the most significant homebuying details align: an award-winning new home builder with high-quality craftsmanship; homes with a thoughtful floor plan mix, with curated options to personalize your spaces; and a community designed to foster a thriving costal lifestyle within an amenity-rich, natural setting—both ocean and forest.

GableCraft Homes‘ master-planned seaside community at Royal Bay in the heart of Colwood is bordered by 1.3 kilometres of stunning shoreline along the Juan De Fuca Strait, with sweeping views out to the Olympic Mountains and Victoria’s Inner Harbour.

With the same reliability as the tides, GableCraft Homes focuses on making your dreams a reality with various new construction housing types that check all the boxes on your West Coast wish list.

Creative site planning affords home styles to include either front-drive garages with single and double attached garages or rear-laned homes with double detached garages.

“It’s a growing family-oriented community,” says Tom Munro, sales & marketing manager, GableCraft Homes and realtor with 460 Realty. “There are some opportunities available now that people can come and explore with us.”

Phase 4C, their latest release, includes 31 new single-family efficient homes, ranging from 1,700 square feet to more than 3,000 square feet, some with a legal suite built within the buyers’ package as a mortgage helper, ideal for first-time buyers.

Additionally, the new Sheffield show home provides an exciting opportunity to experience all the offerings, including the legal suite, which demonstrates the outstanding addition to their inventory.

Multiple options and flexible designs

Livability goes hand-in-hand with the ability to make your home a reflection of your unique personal style and how you want the space to function for your family.

“We offer many options and upgrades, which allows the customer to personalize their home,” says Tanya Zakkour, area sales manager, GableCraft Homes, and realtor with Engel & Volkers, Vancouver Island.

“The integrated automated system is just one of the technology advancements in our homes. In keeping with what’s most efficient and Built Green, for example, we offer a natural gas furnace and an option for a heat pump; the fireplace is natural gas, and the hot water tank is ‘hot water on demand,’ also natural gas, and so is our cooktop.”  

The ‘hot water on demand’ feature doesn’t produce the standby energy losses associated with storage water heaters, which can help save the homebuyer money.

“The pre-planned options give homebuyers a customized ability within the GableCraft scope, that’s how they’re able to build at a repeatable quality and repeatable cost effectiveness, as opposed to a custom home,” says Brendan Wilkinson, area sales manager, GableCraft Homes, and realtor with 460 Realty.

All basements are unfinished, a distinguishing quality about Royal Bay.

“Buyers have the ability on a pre-sale home to finish the basement, which provides an additional bedroom, bathroom, and rec room, where people often add a wet bar,” explains Wilkinson.

“Other popular primary upgrades include the kitchen cabinetry and enlarging the kitchen island.”

GableCraft is mindful of integrating the most modern finishings and fixtures, keeping a strong balance of utility and luxury.

“Many people are happy they can have black hardware and black plumbing fixtures, a real wow factor,” says Zakkour.

“There’s a kitchen and bathroom stone countertop standard throughout the single-family homes,” adds Wilkinson. “Plus, water-resistant wide-plank laminate flooring standard throughout that’s really impressive.”

Planned community, accessible amenities

Enjoy abundant family activities among forest trails, parks like popular Meadow Park, bike paths, and a walking loop, all easily accessible just steps away from your new home.

The upcoming Commons Retail Village will be a community and commercial gathering hub

with shops and eateries, and anchor tenants Quality Foods and Cascadia Liquor, offering every convenience. Nearby urban amenities, sports facilities, and career opportunities are mere minutes away. 

“People are enjoying living in this neighbourhood and thriving because of the growth, which is exciting,” says Zakkour. “They’re also seeing their investment grow significantly.”
