Our home sits in the middle of 2 ½ acres of lawns and forest, with an expansive 180 degree view of a valley, islands and mountains. We are approximately 1 hour from downtown Vancouver, in Langley. There are many tourist activities in our local area as well as in Vancouver. We have lived here 30 years and are still discovering new things to do! Although we are situated in “the country”, shopping, theatre and other amenities are 10 minutes away by car. Our area is very quiet and we frequently have bunnies and deer in our yard. There are several outdoor patios, and an indoor pool. All the rooms in the house have views onto the valley or the gardens. The kitchen/eating area/family room is spacious and is well appointed for cooking and entertaining. The house is a single level, (with a basement). There is excellent walking right out our door, with a park at the end of the street that has horseback riding trails and many acres of forest. The land is slightly rolling, so biking in the countryside is scenic and easy. White Rock beach is a 10 minute drive away, great for walking on the pier and the promenade, and fish ‘n chips. There are many walks/hikes and parks within 1 hour of our home, and we have several books of walks and hikes to choose from. Access to Vancouver is easiest by driving 15 minutes to White Rock, then taking the bus and skytrain (approximately 65 minutes) to downtown. You can also drive to directly into Vancouver which takes 45 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on traffic and time of day. Whistler is 2.5 hours away by car and the USA border is 8 minutes away.
