The southernmost spot of Howe Sound’s Sunshine Coast, The Town of Gibsons is home to over 3,500 residents, many of whom are regular “commuters” to downtown Vancouver and Vancouver’s North Shore. To many Sunshine Coast Real Estate buyers, the Town of Gibsons represents an idyllic lifestyle combination of outdoor recreation, plentiful shops, services, schools, art and culture, and a rare opportunity to own waterfront property at a fraction of the cost of a Vancouver waterfront condo or West Vancouver waterfront property.
However, great real estate deals in Gibsons are in short supply. With Town limitations on growth and available building land at a premium, it is not surprising to see that the Gibsons Real Estate market has been buoyant during 2016 and home prices on the rise.
The future George Marine Residences is the only new Gibsons waterfront property offering luxury condominium homes in the area.The marina-side residences will sit adjacent to the new five star service boutique George Resort Hotel featuring a 21,000 square foot health and wellness centre, unique to the Vancouver region. Along with the adjacent hotel’s multiple benefits, the 400+ berth Gibsons marina, and the heritage village location, the George is bound to become the most prestigious Sunshine Coast real estate around. All this and just a 40 minute BC ferry ride to Horseshoe Bay, 30 minutes by the new Pacific Ferries passenger ferry service, and a passenger ferry service direct to Coal Harbour in downtown Vancouver.
Where else can you live so close to Vancouver and enjoy the myriad amenities and beautiful vistas of a luxury waterfront condominium lifestyle in gorgeous Howe Sound?
