When looking to move for a career change, Esquimalt wasn't initially on Candace McKinty's radar. That was before the 52-year-old discovered Esquimalt Town Square.
“I was so impressed with the European look at Esquimalt Town Square and how I could walk pathways dotted with art to two grocery stores. From the first moment I saw Esquimalt Town Square, I felt like this was my community,” says McKinty.
“Then, once I saw the quality of the finishes and the amazing views from the deck, I was sold.”
She purchased a one-bedroom and den sub-penthouse offering Instagram-worthy views of the Salish Sea, Olympic Peninsula, and the city from her 379-square-foot deck.
“The attention to detail inside is incredible,” says McKinty. “I especially love the reclaimed brick wall with fireplace.”
If you’re looking for a home perfect for entertaining guests yet comfortable and luxurious to live in, as well, the two-bedroom penthouse in the Arbutus at Esquimalt Town Square, built by award-winning Aragon Properties, deserves your attention.
But don’t hesitate. It’s the only residence left!
The move-in-ready $1,295,900 (plus tax) penthouse boasts two bedrooms and two bathrooms spread across 1,449 square feet of design-forward living. What’s more - the private 1,188-square-foot rooftop terrace complete with an outdoor kitchen and a wood trellis is sure to impress even the most discerning of buyers. If that’s not enough, the rooftop terrace provides 180-degree views of the Salish Sea and provides plenty of space for entertaining.
You’ll be part of a thriving community consisting of two six-storey condo buildings – The Arbutus and The Douglas - showcasing a collection of 68 homes, ranging from 665 to 1,449 square feet of distinctively sophisticated living space.
Besides the dramatic exposed reclaimed brick wall complete with a linear electric fireplace, the penthouse features 9’6” ceilings, engineered wide plank white oak hardwood floors, and custom millwork in the master bedroom closet. The energy and cost-efficient geothermal heating and cooling system will keep you comfortable year-round.
The epicurean kitchen comes outfitted with an island, quartz countertops with polished tile backsplash, and a gourmet stainless-steel appliance package, including a Bosch four-burner gas cooktop and wall oven, and a Fisher & Paykel fridge.
Like a European town square where people congregate and connect, neighbours and friends meet up at the local Esquimalt Roasting Company for a cup of java. Soon, they will be able to walk to the Esquimalt Branch of the Greater Victoria Public Library, opening later this spring.
The focal point will also feature offices, a rental and commercial building, and a civic plaza. These installments, along with the Public Art Walk, have solidified Esquimalt Town Square’s position as a hub for artists and creative thinkers alike.
A western suburb of metropolitan Victoria, just a 10-minute drive away, Esquimalt was once not as well-known as Victoria, but no longer! Esquimalt is undergoing a substantial revitalization, and Aragon is transforming the downtown core with Esquimalt Town Square.
With over three decades of excellence in building quality homes, award-winning Aragon Properties is the major player in the growth and revitalization of Esquimalt. Together with the existing civic Town Hall and the public square, the redevelopment represents the next step in the evolution of the town of Esquimalt.
The final home at Esquimalt Town Square, located at 1216 Carlisle Ave, Esquimalt, is open for viewing by appointment only. To schedule a private tour, please contact the sales team at your earliest convenience at 250.891.8252 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
