High end and custom describe the overall sense of what you will find in homes in Crown Isle. Started in the 1990s, this idyllic subdivision is home to locals and transplants from other provinces. If you are looking for convenience and a grand lifestyle in newer part of Courtenay then this should be one of your options. All homes listed on the MLS in Crown Isle represent the vast majority of homes that come available each year in this desirable neighbourhood.
While Crown Isle has some condos located in six building complexes located either bordering or near the golf course, there are also patio homes (located within and outside of gated areas) and single-family homes. Single-family homes constitute the vast majority of the homes located in this prestigious subdivision. They currently range in price from about $600,000 to well over a million. Most of the recently constructed homes tend to be either rancher style homes of ranchers with bonus rooms between 1700 and 2100 square feet to cater to the needs of what is most sought after in the market. Many homes are custom-built to owner specifications by established builders and their features are as wide ranging as the home styles themselves.
Some homes border the golf course but most do not. The vast majority offer Freehold ownership while some sit on bare-land strata lots. Crown Isle is all about choice. Most homes offer crawl space under the main floor and some have basements. Double car garages are common and some homes have three car garages. Main floor living is a highly sought-after feature by quite a number of families and second floors are generally limited to one or more bonus rooms. The newer built homes generally have tile roofs and Hardie Plank exterior wall coverings. Many also have some type of rock decorative motif on part of the exterior as well. Inside each home is where the differences are most pronounced.
Open concept is a very common feature of most of the newly built homes. As you enter these homes many have a great room main living area with tall ceilings and windows. Large fireplaces are often a central focus of these areas and they generally offer easy access to most of the other common areas such as the kitchen, dining and other living areas. Crown moulding, wainscoting, tray ceilings, open beam construction and tile and hardwood floors are just some of the many different features that some people choose for their homes and lifestyles. The features represented are only limited by people’s imaginations. Look throughout the Comox Valley and you will discover this is a truly high-end community of homes.
