Sure, it’s nice buying into a family friendly neighbourhood that already has transit, schools and community centres in place. But it’s also nice spending about $100,000 less on a home in an up-and-coming community that will soon have all those things. Which is probably why the first 78 homes in Farrington Park went so fast. The Coquitlam townhome development is in an area that’s about to blossom with new bus routes, public amenities and, of course, schools.

Farrington Park is just as close to Coquitlam Centre as the Westwood Plateau area, yet its units are considerably more affordable. But you can bet once this promising new part of Coquitlam is fully built-out, the value of Farrington Park homes are going to increase significantly.

That’s why the development’s seven remaining homes are this week’s pick for “best deal in town.” Three-bedroom homes start at $389,900. For that, you get street-level access, south-facing decks and parking galore. Each home also features stainless steel appliances by KitchenAid, warm wood laminate flooring and three contemporary colour options.

Framed by cedar and maple trees, these tudor-style townhomes are next door to Galloway Park – complete with a splash pad, playground and basketball court for the kids.

This limited collection of parkside, Cotswold-inspired homes are on the market now and will be ready for occupancy this fall. You can check out the sales centre at (1338 Hames Crescent, Coquitlam) from noon to 6 p.m. daily (except Friday).
