Cottages at Seabright Farm
Only an hour’s drive from Vancouver, Point Roberts has a unique micro-climate with less rainfall and more sunlight than its Canadian neighbour. The international border and isolation from the U.S. mainland has sheltered this quiet American village from urban development, preserving its laid-back, peaceful island air. Add in a multitude of beaches; a well-serviced marina and widely-renowned golf course; beach combing, salmon-fishing and crabbing, as well as orca- and eagle-watching, and it’s no surprise that much of Point Roberts is dedicated to cottages owned by Vancouver families.
The Cottages at Seabright Farm celebrates the Point Roberts’ lifestyle. Unlike typical subdivisions that are imposed upon their environments and neighbours, Seabright Farm is designed to have a “light footprint”, maintaining harmony with its surroundings and the local village. Services and amenities include a regenerated farm where residents can get fresh produce, flowers and fruits; copious green spaces and a large wetland complex; a community barn for potlucks and dances; a heated pool and hot tubs; stairs for easy access to the beach; a lookout, and a heritage cottage for yoga, wine tastings or just catching up.
Buyers have a choice of six charming cottage plans that capture the location’s farm, beach and seaside themes. The plans promote a flow between indoor and outdoor living spaces, incorporating ocean light and sea breeze from the Gulf of Georgia, and emphasizing family gathering areas with great rooms, decks and fireplaces. A multitude of add-on buildings and features make each cottage further customizable. Lot and cottage combo prices range from US$400,000 to US$800,000+.
An easy and ferry-less commute away, Point Roberts combines the serenity of island life with the simplicity of small town living.
