Crown Isle is a high-end subdivision located in the Comox Valley that is unparalleled. Why? No other one offers the extra wide streets and upscale lamp posts and signs and the number of custom homes that are found here. Luxury is a word that can be applied to most of the homes built in this community. Elegant is a word that can be applied to the interiors of many of these homes.
Over the past few years new construction has continued at a fairly rapid pace yet used home sales have slowed down. There are fewer houses being placed on the market and the overall number offered each year has decreased. People are continuing to relocate here but fewer are leaving the area. Single family homes, patio homes, condominiums, and some bare land strata properties located in small gated communities all form part of the mosaic that is Crown Isle.
The 2019 entry price point for single family homes in this luxury area is about $700,000. There have been 7 sales over one million dollars and four of them came in 2018. Rancher style homes with or without bonus rooms are among the most popular choices for consumers who tend to be affluent and older than the average age in Courtenay. Open concept main living areas and upgraded kitchens, master bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms are among the most popular features. There are, of course, many other features found in these upscale homes. Home theatre rooms, games rooms, and wine cellars are among them.
Most people who are aware of Crown Isle know that this community was built around an 18-hole golf course. While some homes border the course, many do not. Some have views of the local island mountain range and the Comox Glacier. All are conveniently located to the nearby Crown Isle Plaza, the area Costco and Home Depot, the regional hospital, the aquatic centre and North Island College. Also convenient is the airport about a 5 minutes drive away. Downtown Comox and downtown Courtenay are also about the same driving time from this great area.
The Crown Isle resort and golf community does offer nightly accommodations (rooms and suites) located near the main complex at 399 clubhouse drive. Stay and play golf or just enjoy venturing out into the local area. There is a dining room and pub on the premises and events are scheduled throughout the year such as the classic car show which is held in the June/July timeframe. In 2019, the event takes place on Saturday July 27th. If you are looking for a refreshed quality of life or retirement in a terrific area why not drop by and take a look. You may just fall in love with the area and decide to move here.
