Built Green Platinum Homes at The Gales Offer Many Benefits

With stunning ocean views and forest trails at your back door, living at The Gales in Ladysmith means living in nature. The developers and builders of this Vancouver Island new home development are focused on protecting this green space while building homes of the highest quality.
New homes at The Gales are built to the BuiltGreen Platinum level. This is the highest level of BuiltGreen certification and provides a number of benefits to home owners.
According to the Built Green website, owners of Built Green enjoy healthier, more durable homes with lower environmental impacts. Built Green Platinum homes offer lower monthly operating costs thanks to things like energy efficient appliances, furnaces, windows and insulation. Water efficiency is achieved through plumbing and landscaping choices. Air inside the homes is cleaner with fewer allergens, and more comfortable with fewer drafts and more consistent temperatures.
The Gales is a well-established community on Ladysmith on Vancouver Island. Award-winning GNB Builders continues its tradition of luxury home building with new patio homes, two of which are currently listed for sale.
These 1,820 sq ft patio homes are built as a side-by-side duplex and are listed at $599,900. An additional two new rancher-style homes are set to begin construction soon. These new 1,820 sq ft homes will start at $614,900.
For more information on available homes and future plans at The Gales, contact Realtor Keith Mazurenko of Royal LePage Nanaimo Realty at 250.245.0545.

Preferred builders at The Ridge bring many years of experience to their work. This, combined with the New Home Warranty Insurance, gives buyers peace of mind when buying a new home at The Ridge.

Hear from These Residents About Why They Love Living At The Ridge in Courtenay

Residents of The Ridge have a lot of reasons to love their neighbourhood. Hear from one couple about why they love their new community:

“We have lived in the Comox Valley for 20-plus years and had never been to The Ridge community until 2013 when we took the time to explore this otherwise empty space with recently constructed roadwork and just a couple of houses. We immediately fell in love with The Ridge."

A few years later, the couple was ready to build their new home.

“As we built our property, we often found ourselves walking through the community to observe the new homes being constructed. It was the genesis of getting to know not only our neighbourhood but our neighbours as well. The subdivision was growing but that seemed to only add new friends to the bonds we had already kindled. It is not uncommon for neighbours to be relaxing in their front yards only to be joined by friends for impromptu social gatherings.

“The developer Bruce Clapham really cares about creating a community neighbourhood at The Ridge and has donated funds for our annual block party for the past two years. This event has brought neighbours together and has helped immensely to create bonds and make the community feel like a large extended family.

“We are minutes from town, yet it feels like we are living in a rural setting. There is no thru traffic here and no overhead wires to spoil our great views. We even got to watch the BC Day fireworks from our deck. We are glad that not everyone knows where The Ridge is, but if you’re lucky enough to find us, you will feel like you have lived here your entire life."
