The stylish interiors of Ballantree, Polygon Homes’ new residential development in Coquitlam, are just one of the draws for young families looking for room to grow. The amenities of the future Burke Mountain Village and proximity to the area’s many trails and parks also add to the appeal of the three and four bedroom townhouses.

The development, designed by Ekistics Architecture, attracts first-time buyers and new buyers, mainly families, many of whom are from the Tri-Cities, who currently live in older apartments or townhouses and are in need of more space, says Goldie Alam, vice president of Polygon – president of marketing.

“Burke Mountain is a growing community, it’s growing so fast,” she says. “With the [recent] Provincial government funding for the new high school and being right across from Burke Mountain Village it’s a huge draw. Residents will enjoy amenities such as a community center, shopping and other services at Burke Mountain Village. And, she says, “having trails and parks for families to enjoy and connect with nature is amazing. “

Buyers can choose from three floor plans, all with private double garages fitted with electric vehicle charging sockets. The ground floor has nine foot ceilings and a powder room. Warm toned laminate floors connect the open plan living spaces, including the generously sized kitchens that really are the heart of these homes.

Heritage-inspired colors – a rich burgundy, a sophisticated charcoal gray, and a deep dark blue – distinguish the front doors of Craftsman-style homes ranging in size from 1,652 to 2,235 square feet. Meanwhile, interiors reflect a combination of “playful modern design and urban flair,” says Celia Dawson, senior vice president of interior design at Polygon. “There is the feeling of a cool space that is not crowded. I feel like I can come home, relax, take off my shoes and breathe.

Polygon’s interior design team have created two stylish color options, both featuring modern flat-panel cabinetry with soft-close hardware and quartz countertops where subtle speckles soften the tone of the engineered stone. White. The Ivory scheme features matte white cabinetry, while Sand is a light palette with oak-look laminate cabinetry.

Large kitchen islands are a feature of all floor plans and make home entertainment fun, says Dawson.

While she notes that it’s important to keep the main surfaces (cabinets, backsplash, countertops, and floors) fairly neutral, at Ballantree it was possible to use oversized marble tiles – Statuarieto or Nordic Gray – to full height backsplashes, creating visual interest without dominating the design. “It’s like putting on a necklace, it’s [enhances] but does not dominate. The main surfaces must match well so that [the end result] doesn’t look like a quilted quilt, ”says Dawson, adding that the larger tiles make the space bigger and less busy.

Cooks will appreciate the five-burner gas cooktop with slim, sliding stainless steel range hoods. They are all part of Dawson’s design strategy to create a clean look, as is the stainless steel French door refrigerator, electric wall oven, and double sink.

For the adjoining bathrooms, the design team extended the marble-look porcelain tile from the floor to the shower walls with its frameless glass door and built-in bench. Oversized floating mirrors and tiled tubs provide convenient space to place a few candles and a glass of wine while enjoying a relaxing soak at the end of a busy day also add to the spa vibe.
