This Family Has So Many Reasons to Love Living at The Ridge

Residents of The Ridge in Courtenay have many reasons to "Love living at The Ridge."

One couple, Brianna and Jeremy, told 1stView about many of the benefits their family enjoys in their new home at The Ridge. They moved into their new custom home at The Ridge in March, 2019.

The couple said they looking for a safe and quiet neighbourhood for their family and their two young children. They bought a home built by one of The Ridge's preferred builders, Brando Construction. 

“We were looking at quite a few homes in different locations and the first time we visited The Ridge we fell in love with it, because of the layout of the neighbourhood, the walking trails for our dog, and the amazing mountain and ocean views. We can even see the Mainland mountains from here! We immediately enjoyed a very welcoming feeling driving into The Ridge."

The family enjoys the easy access to outdoor activities, and have noticed their neighbours are also busy exploring the Comox Valley.

“We love being outdoors! Most of the places we like to go to - like Comox Lake and Cumberland - are only a 15 minute drive away. We often see like-minded neighbours getting ready to pursue their favorite outdoor activities on the weekends."

Additionally their new home is close to all of the day-to-day needs:

“The Ridge is also close to grocery stores, shopping and the airport is only 20 minutes away. I travel frequently for work and easy and quick access to the Comox Valley Airport is important," Brianna explained.

And the community has quickly become home for the entire family, thanks to friendly neighbours and community amenities.

“There is a relaxed atmosphere in the neighbourhood, and strong sense of community. Last night we went to the local park here, only a few minutes from our home and there were four other families at the park. The kids ran towards each other and played together and we had a visit with the neighbours. Even though we have only been here a few months, we all know each other’s names, the childrens’ names and we even know the dogs’ names! Our children feel very comfortable going to the park, and we know that they are safe in our neighbourhood. We visit the park daily and sometimes multiple times in the same day.

“Soccer, lacrosse and frisbee activities are frequently played in the park and it is also a great area to play with our dog. We often see celebrations being held in the park as well. We feel a great sense of community here. 

“Life at The Ridge is very family-friendly, there is a nice mix of young families who interact with each other, retirees and other residents of all ages. There are very few vehicles on the roads - only neighbourhood traffic - and the roundabouts help calm the traffic. 

“When I walk the dog, even early in the morning, I say ‘hi’ to at least 10 people. We have the best neighbours and we have quickly become friends."

Brianna & Jeremy, residents at THE RIDGE.

Learn About The Ridge From Happy Home Owners

The Ridge Courtenay1stView recently spoke with new residents at The Ridge to learn about their experience moving to this new Comox Valley real estate development:

Donna and Jim decided to make the big move to Vancouver Island in 2016. They had lived in Kingston, Ontario for over 50 years and after their two sons had moved to British Columbia, they decided to follow. The question was, where on Vancouver Island were they going to live? They had looked at other communities on Vancouver Island and chose the Comox Valley as it offered everything they were looking for, including a doctor who was taking new patients, a new hospital and a community that was located about half-way between the cities where their sons lived.

They came across The Ridge website and decided to take a drive through the scenic subdivision. After meeting the developer and viewing a Lawmar Contracting home under construction, they made their decision on the spot to purchase the home and moved in on December 1, 2016.

“The area surrounding The Ridge is so beautiful, and we love walking around the many trails here and seeing the mountains and the ocean,” Donna told us.

She goes on to say “It is like living in paradise: we see trumpeter swans, Canadian geese and eagles flying right over our house."

Donna and Jim thoroughly enjoy living at The Ridge. They really appreciate the multi-generational aspect of their neighbourhood and having young children, families and retirees in their community. The neighbours are friendly and welcoming. As an added bonus, Jim loves being in such close proximity to many top-rated golf courses.

Blossoms Come Quickly to Back Yard Gardens at The Ridge on Vancouver Island

Spring comes quickly to Vancouver Island, and with it the spectrum of colour that fills gardens and planter boxes. Rhododendrons and Azaleas thrive in the mild West Coast climate and are blooming shortly after the spring daffodils and tulips make their appearance.

While the Island is green year round, spring gardens burst into bloom earlier here than anywhere else in Canada!  With large yards at The Ridge subdivision, gardeners can plant flowers, shrubs and trees to their heart’s content. Design your landscaping to showcase year-round colour, and still make it as low maintenance as you wish.

The Ridge community has 20 new homes under construction in  Phase I and preparing lots for Phase II. With new residents already enjoying their spacious properties, contact us to learn more about building your new custom home at The Ridge.
