Follow a sloping road down toward the rolling green woodland just south of Burnaby Lake, and you’ll discover a quiet corner of the world, a place where centuries – old fir trees stand guard and scotch broom bursts into yellow flowers in the springtime. Here you’ll find Aschcombe, a place that feels like home from the moment you arrive. Low-slung rooftops, tall chimneys and soft colours capture the spirit of the English Cotswolds. Tudor trim and large mullioned windows are classic, timeless, welcoming.
Ashcombe is part of Burnaby’s long established Carboo Hills neighbourhood, a warm and comfortable family community close to every imaginable recreation facility, with endless shopping choices and good local schools. Bordered by protected forest land, Ashcombe enjoys a peaceful away-from-it-all feeling, yet it’s just a few minutes from numerous parks, community centres and shopping. There is Burnaby Lake, just five minutes way, which is a popular destination for canoeing and kayaking, hiking, and horseback riding. Sports buffs will love living so close to Canada Games Pool and the Burnaby Sports Complex. While shoppers will certainly find what they need while hunting through close by Metrotown, Lougheed Mall, and Westminster Quay. Ashcombe caters to students of all ages – elementary school and high schools are within walking distance, while BCIT and Simon Fraser University are within easy driving distance.
