Home Sweet Home at Bertrand Creek

Our family currently resides in a busy hub of Willoughby, Langley, but lately we’ve been contemplating moving to Aldergrove.

Aside from being slightly more affordable when it comes to owning a detached home, we recently discovered that this little growing community has a lot of charm. READ POST HERE.

You can actually hear the birds chirping,  head to Krause Berry Farm for roasted corn pizza, meet a friend for lunch at the Milsean Chocolate Shoppe and enjoy a date night at one of the few remaining outdoor theatres – the Twilight Drive-In.

In addition to new specialty shops, boutiques and restaurants popping up on the local landscape, there is a new community of single-family homes with Craftsman character and its own network of nature trails that has caught our eye called Bertrand Creek.

Built and designed by Epic Homes, this local developer was inspired to preserve and enhance the natural setting for a new generation of active Valley families. Three and four-bedroom homes are sheltered by greenbelt privacy on tree-lined streets and quiet cul-de-sacs.

These homes have everything on our wish list and more, with enticing features including: country kitchens with ample space to entertain, wide plank flooring, stone countertops, custom cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, full basements (in most homes), double side-by-side garages, patios and grassy backyards.

Bertrand Creek’s trail system can be explored on foot or bike — through forests of red cedars and maple trees, over pedestrian bridges, past lagoons and meadows of wildflowers. Even the family’s four-legged best friend can keep active in the new off-leash dog park.

Also in close proximity are all levels of schools, a wide selection of grocery stores and restaurants, plus Aldergrove’s upcoming Leisure Centre with ice arena, fitness room and swimming pool. All the spirit of a small town — summer fairs, wineries, orchards and family farms, with great accessibility to the world beyond.

Inspired by its natural setting, the house plans at Bertrand Creek are each named after one of Langley’s major water sheds — the streams and rivers that flow to the ocean. Here’s a peek at the three options:

1.The Anderson

The Andersons were one of Langley’s first pioneer families, Anderson Creek runs from the Brookswood area of Langley into the Nicomekl River. The meandering stream is a salmon spawning channel and also home to steelhead, rainbow trout and three-spine stickleback.

2.The Latimer

This protected watershed flows from the Willoughby area of Langley towards the Serpentine River in Surrey. A haven for wildlife, look care fully and you might spot a red-legged frog or pileated wood pecker. Latimer Creek supports an abundance of fish species including coho salmon, coastal cutthroat trout and three-spine stickleback.

3.The Bertrand

Bertrand Creek runs south through the community of Aldergrove in the Township of Langley, and is a cross-border tributary of the Nooksack River. (Originally known as the Sehkomekl to First Nations,) The creek continues to support salish sucker and Nooksack dace. It welcomes spawning coho and chum salmon in late fall, and rainbow and cut throat trout in spring.
