Peter Lafuente’s parents have been Vancouver residents for quite a while and when they began thinking about downsizing their home, Lafuente was on hand to help them find a home where they can enjoy their new lifestyle.
Lafuente spoke about his parent’s decision to buy an apartment at Kindred – a multi-family residential development by Fairborne Homes. Since Lafuente was involved in real estate, he was familiar with the quality of apartments that Fairborne has developed in North Vancouver. The 96- home development includes two 5-storey buildings with one or two bedroom homes in the Moodyville neighborhood.
Moodyville is a traditional neighborhood of small single family homes. For the past 70 years, the area has not changed much and the homes that were originally built for workers during World War II era remained. Kindred happened after the City of North Vancouver approved a new community plan for the neighborhood.
According to Cristy Edmonds of Fairborne Homes, the location is getting popular among home buyers because Kindred is on a Transit Corridor that is walking distance of the SeaBus at Lonsdale Quay. The area is also connected to the Spirit Trail that has a walking and bicycling route right outside the development. But what seems more appealing to buyers is the limited opportunities for new development.
Lafuente wanted a low-maintenance home for his parents. The Kindred home has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathroom corner units with an 11-foot ceiling and a beautiful patio. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances with a Fisher & Paykel counter-depth fridge, a gas cook-top and wall oven.
The bathrooms are luxuriously fitted with quartz countertops, porcelain tiles on the floors and walls, frameless glass shower enclosures and soaker tubs. The homes were really built for people and not for investors. It has all the luxurious features and details that many people do not have in their present homes.
Frameless glass shower screens are now the trend in many new homes because it gives an illusion of a bigger bathroom space. Aside from being aesthetically stunning, glass shower screens are easy to clean and they perfectly match any size of bath and shower room.
