Background

Each unit at Windermere has their own garage


Windermere is an adult exclusive community consisting of 44 town homes. Located in the beautiful Indian River district of North Vancouver, this community provides contemporary urban living in a picturesque natural setting. If space is an issue than Windermere might be worth considering since the town houses range in size from 1,775 to 2,610 square feet.

The area of Indian River is a haven for those who live to be outside. Its location is right at the base of Mount Seymour, home to world class mountain biking and one of three ski areas within the greater Vancouver area.

The Northland Golf Course is also nearby as is the Pacific ocean. Windermere is also just minutes from the Parkgate Village Shopping Centre, featuring all of the amenities one comes to expect from living in an urban neighbourhood. [1]



Location

The location of Windermere at 1925 Indian River Crescent truly enables residents to enjoy everything that encompasses the West Coast lifestyle. As mentioned, Windermere is in proximity to a seemingly endless array of outdoor activities. It is also within walking distance to the Parkgate Village Shopping Centre. The community is accessible by public transit, however this area is a bit more remote than most North Vancouver neighbourhoods and therefore transit is less frequent.

While Windermere isn't technically in the Sea to Sky corridor, it does enjoy the same lifestyle since it is sandwiched between Mount Seymour and the Burrard Inlet. A 15 minute drive up Mount Seymour Road, (please be wary of weather conditions) will bring you to the quaint ski and snowboard resort of Mt.Seymour. Also, a 15 minute drive along Indian River Drive will land you spectacular ocean views of the Indian Arm Inlet. Of course, the internationally regarded city of Vancouver is also within reach via public transit or a reasonable drive.[2]

Another feature unique to these units are large skylights that open the living space to its beautiful surroundings. [3]

Sustainability

While the units at Windermere were constructed before the notion of sustainability became widely adopted, the developers did manage to integrate some sustainable measure into the residences. The ample use of skylights throughout the residences of Windermere allow for an abundance of natural sunlight to flood into each unit.

The District of North Vancouver has long been a leader in the implementation of sustainable program development and encourages all residents to utilize all of the programs they provide. These include extensives recycling and composting services.[5]


Public transit does serve the area but residents are advised to leave extra time to reach their destinations.

Trivia

Mt. Seymour's new Mystery Peak Express

For the winter season of 2012/2013 Mt. Seymour installed a brand new five million dollar highspeed quad chairlift. Called the Mystery Peak Express, this lift doubles the capacity of the previous lift, which was a double chair built in 1978. The Mystery Peak Express reduces the time to get to the top from 10 minutes to only five!

While on the topic of Mt. Seymour, the ski and snowboard resort averages over a thousand centimetres of snow annually.[6]

The Indian Arm Road is one of the few links to the Indian Arm Inlet and the residences that dot its shore. Recently the road received the distinguished honor of making the list of BCAA's Top Ten Worst Roads in BC.

One of the best and most well known mountain biking trails in the province is located on Seymour Mountain. Named CBC, after the nation's public broadcaster, it is over 2km in length and is one of the most popular trails on the North Shore.[7]
