Hazelwood Grove Adult +55 Community Chilliwack B.C.

In the past 25 years there has been a continual push to provide "gated" adult communities in the eastern Fraser Valley. Chilliwack, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs offer some of the most affordable adult housing in the Valley offering close proximity to Vancouver and the US border. Of these the Hazelwood Grove Adult +55 Community in Chilliwack, BC is one of the best. 

  Situated on a former hazelnut grove this property is insulated by a row of buildings from road noise.  As you can see, in the picture above, the attractive gates are a long ways away from the street.  Gates play an interesting role; providing protection and give a dramatic touch to arrival and departure. Construction of this mixed density development began in 1993 when a row of detached single family houses were built. Since then a variety of single family detached dwellings, ground oriented duplexes, attached units and apartment buildings have constructed; in total 150 homes and two apartment buildings. There are a number of important elements that make the Hazelwood Grove +55 Retirement Community stand out from other offerings in the Chilliwack area. This may seem like a minor point but with 50 visitor parking stalls and a large Recreation Vehicle (RV) storage area there is plenty of parking. With land at a premium, this amount of parking space is not found in other adult communities.
  The Clubhouse is a luxury that can be afforded and features a library, meeting hall, billiards area, swimming pool, hot tub, sauna and a guest suite complete with a small kitchen.

  The design of the houses many over 1500 square feet on the main floor are sensibly sized for one or two people even though they usually have 3 bedrooms.  This gives space for a guest suite and computer/den area. I was very impressed by the level of care and attention to the landscape and talked briefly with one person about the maintenance of the complex.  It would seem that they have a deep contingency fund and an appropriate attitude towards the ongoing issues of care that arise with age.   There are a number of listing in this complex ranging in value from $209,900 for a two bedroom apartment to $295,000 for a 1526 square foot, 3 bedroom detached house I have just listed.  Details on these properties can be found by clicking here .  This link will disappear with time so if you want an update of available real estate properties please send me an email or give me a telephone call 604-378-9000. The property I have been fortunate to list for sale is a rancher and as pictures seem to tell the story here are a few of this beautiful house.

If you are considering a move or purchase in this area please give me a call.

  1. Turning 55 brings with it certain opportunities. For one, you can now live in a 55 + community. Be surrounded by people your own age and have fun. You can choose to live in a community that emphasizes an active lifestyle and never be bored.
