Luxury Living in Morgan Creek

If you’ve ever dreamed of one day driving down the tree lined streets of Morgan Creek to your
own personal sanctuary, wait no longer!

This beautiful home offers an amazing location in the gated community of Wedgewood, Morgan Creek. Just steps to the Morgan Creek club house, and backing onto the 12th fairway of the golf course, this is perfect package for empty nesters who want to downsize without sacrificing space and luxury.

With over 5,200sq.ft. of living space, everything in this home is grand. As you step inside, you
are greeted with an open foyer, cascading staircase, vaulted ceilings as well as formal living and
dining areas – prefect for those holiday dinners and family get-togethers! Moving along, you’ll
discover the office with private patio area, spacious powder room, and chef’s kitchen with
granite countertops, large island, high-end appliances and breakfast nook. Looking out from the
kitchen is the large family room creating the prefect space to gather with friends and family and
enjoy a glass of wine! With direct access from the main floor to your private covered patio
areas, you can enjoy the seasons surrounded by lush, manicured landscaping and view of the
12th fairway! Completing the main floor package is the tastefully appointed master suite offering private patio, gas fireplace, spacious ensuite with soaker tub, double vanity and shower as well as large walk-in closet.


For guests, or the kids, the upstairs is complete with two additional bedrooms, both featuring
private ensuites and oversized closets. As a bonus, one of the secondary bedrooms also
features private balcony with views of the fairway!

Heading to the fully finished lower level, you’ll find a large wet bar and entertaining space, flex
room which is prefect for future gym or play room, den, additional bedrooms as well as full-sized
laundry room with dog shower!

 

The final piece is how much storage space this home has to offer. In addition to the double car
garage, you’ll find two full-sized storage rooms in the lower level, offering ample storage space!
Morgan Creek has long been regarded as one of the most exclusive and desirable neighbourhoods in the Fraser Valley. Centrally located, it offers amazing access to high-end shopping, dining, schools, beaches, recreation, as well as amazing proximity to the Peace Arch Border and Downtown Vancouver.

If you’re ready to start living the dream, take a tour!

Shopping Local and Ethical Without Busting Bank

 

We’ve all heard it. “I want to support local or ethical, but I just can’t afford it.” This is basically how big box retailers thrive – they churn out mass volume for cheap labor and cost, and families on a budget flock. This isn’t to shame, because all of us do it. I love my Target runs or saving up coupons to get everything my daughter needs from Gap. I’m writing this because most of us have a heart for being more ethically conscious, and wanting to provide a cleaner, less-polluted world for our kids, but need some help doing it. So if you are from BC or Canada in general, here are some helpful tips for how to afford ethically made products.

Municipal Leaders and Tech Entrepreneurs Unite for 2nd Annual Fraser Valley Tech Forum with a Focus on Intelligent Communities and Funding for Valley Entrepreneurs

On Thursday, September 20th, key regional stakeholders and industry experts are participating in the second annual Fraser Valley Tech Forum co-hosted by the Sumas Regional Consortium for High Tech (SRCTec) and the District of Mission. The event aims to attract industry, government, academia, tech influencers, and community stakeholders to come together and foster growth and innovation within the local tech sector.

The Roots of Impact

At the beginning of the 2018 school year my daughter started working in grade schools toward a very meaningful initiative. Upon being asked to participate in the Roots of Empathy program I was unclear about what it would look like, however, my interest peaked, and we scheduled a meet and greet with our potential instructor. It went very well and on our first day I got my daughter ready in her little ‘teacher’ uniform (cue the proud tears of delight!) and we set out for our first session working with grade 7 students. She was 4 months old and I could see that she was a little overwhelmed with entering a new, busy environment. I held her tight as she clung to the neck of my shirt with a white-knuckle grip and intensely wide eyes. Our instructor guided us through an educational session about her capabilities, milestones and her general demeanor. I was delighted to see that the students were both curious and very respectful of her need for comfort and quiet ‘indoor voices’. Upon getting home and reflecting I was excited to continue our Roots of Empathy journey and all that we would subsequently experience as a community of shared learning.
