$23 million, Lakeside Cultus Lake offers last chance for resort-style waterfront living

CHILLIWACK, B.C. – An extraordinary purchasing opportunity has officially been launched at Lakeside Cultus Lake in the Fraser Valley. The last piece of waterfront land available for development on the lake is now home to a $23 million, high-end, resort-style 21-unit residence offering luxurious waterfront accommodation.

Inspired by the beauty of the natural surroundings and taking full advantage of lakeside living, Lakeside Cultus Lake is located a comfortable 90 minutes from Vancouver, with no border lineups or ferry crossings. Surrounded by one of the most popular provincial parks in British Columbia, this development is the last waterfront location on the lake that has freehold ownership opportunity.

Priced from $780,000 to $1.6 million, these units, ranging from 1,175 to 1,750 square feet, offer buyer’s a resort lifestyle for part-time, or permanent residence.

Interior finishes are elegant and well-appointed with inspired kitchens, wood floors, air conditioning, and open concepts. Each unit has a large balcony with unobstructed west-facing views to the pristine lake and mountains with stunning B.C. sunsets. Award-winning designer Debbie Evans will be applying her expert eye to the interior, creating spaces that are as functional as they are beautiful. Evans, a registered interior designer and LEED Green associate, is recognized as one of Western Canada’s top designers. She’s won 10 Georgies and three National Sam Awards for her work.

The development boasts an on-water recreational pavilion and marina with designated boat slip for each home, so owners are just steps away from enjoying water-based activities. Since the lake is not glacier-fed, the water is temperate in the summer, so it’s perfect for swimming, water skiing and paddle boarding.

“Cultus Lake is one of B.C.’s most popular recreational areas in B.C., bringing more than one million visitors a year;  however, there is very little moorage for boaters,” says project sales leader Ben Hurlbutt of Engel Volkers Canada. “Lakeside is the only resort residence with a private marina. There is no other place on the lake like this.”

The land on which Lakeside is being built comes with a unique history. Carved out of Crown land in the 1920s, it was home to a provincial fish hatchery. In the 1960s, the fisheries ministry gave up trying to stock the lake with trout, and the hatchery closed. The property had different owners over the years until it was finally sold to Cultus Lake Resort Properties in 2006 and later rezoned for residential development.

Lakeside is a collaboration between Jim Young, a Cultus Lake homeowner, and Alture Properties, which has been creating resort and residential developments for 16 years. Young, who is part of a four-generation family on the lake, has been coming to the area since he was 10. He is spearheading the Lakeside Trail project along with local residents, and shares Alture’s interest in creating a resort community designed to be a landmark and legacy for future generations.

The Lakeside Trail will follow the lake on its eastern side. The 10k path will be designed for all ages and abilities, allowing nature-lovers to walk, run or cycle, and will eventually be extended to a 25k route around the entire lake. The trail will be informative and educational, as well as beautiful, featuring interpretive First Nations signage celebrating the history and ecology of the lake and its region.

“I’ve missed only one summer in 58 years,” says Young, who lives on the lake at Lindell Beach. “It’s stood the test of time. My kids and grandkids love to come here. It’s the perfect size for family recreation. At about six square kilometres in size, it’s big enough to support a lot of recreational activity ­– kayaks, paddleboards, swimmers – but not too big that you would get serious storms. It’s not like Lake Okanagan.”

Kerkhoff Construction Ltd. is a trusted builder leading Lakeside’s construction management. Kerkhoff has built a local and international reputation for reliability, cost efficiency and quality.

This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a waterfront home with a boat slip on a lake inside the boundaries of a provincial  park, where there is no more development land.
