Courtenay, BC is one of the best places to live on Vancouver Island. Never heard of it? Let’s take a moment to imagine a typical day in the life of someone living in Northridge Estates.

What is it like to live in Courtenay?

On a quiet morning, you wake up gently from the natural light coming through your window. The temperature is just right, not too hot nor too cold. Slowly, you get up, put on your favourite slippers and light housecoat, then walk down to your open-concept kitchen to make a fresh cup of coffee.

You enter a luxurious, modern white kitchen complete with an island, stainless steel appliances, and a view into the living room where your spouse has already turned on the gas fireplace, not because it’s cold but because it’s beautiful. Ample storage and a smart design means you walk into a serene, uncluttered kitchen and can enjoy the ritual of getting your morning cup of coffee together without any stress.

With your choice of seating options at the nearby dining room table under a high-end statement lighting or in the living room in front of the cosy fireplace, you decide to instead go out the French doors into the back patio. Here, you have a comfortable chair where you can relax to the sounds of birds chirping and soft sunrays on your face. The sun is shining and you can’t help but want to breathe in the fresh air.

Your backyard is small, private, and fuss-free. A beautiful rock wall lined with small cedar bushes allows for all the privacy you need, while providing enough green space to not burden yourself with extraneous yard work. Above the rock wall is natural flora and fauna, providing even more of a beautiful view. It’s a peaceful place of solitude or to share with loved ones with a backyard BBQ.

Once you have emptied your cup, you head back inside to get ready for the day. Of the two bathrooms, you choose the one with the free standing bathtub under an elaborate chandelier. Starting your day as relaxing as possible is what it is all about. Once you are fully relaxed, you return to your bedroom and explore your large, walk-in closet for the day’s attire. There’s a large collection of fashionable, smart clothing options. As Courtenay has a moderate year-round temperature, you have more freedom to dress for style instead of functionality.

Small room with washer and dryer

Before heading out for the day, you step into your large laundry room to start a quick wash behind closed doors. It’s easy to keep your home neat, tidy, and a sanctuary for relaxing when you have a layout this well thought out.

Exploring Courtenay: things to do

As you pull out of your attached garage and turn onto the street you can’t help but notice and appreciate how safe and quiet your neighbourhood is, along with friendly neighbours that take pride in keeping their properties nicely landscaped. It feels good to call such a place home.

After a short few minutes’ drive, you find yourself on one of the main roadways in Courtenay, Lerwick Road. In no time at all, you are conveniently located near a Costco, Home Depot, several grocery stores, and the respectable North Island College. From your home, it’s only a 10 minute drive to the heart of downtown where even more amenities are available.

Today, you don’t have any reason to go downtown so instead you head north for a short 5-10 minute drive to your favourite golf course to meet your best friend for a few rounds and lunch. During your visit, you learn that your friend is considering spending the next day at Mount Washington Alpine Resort and passes along an invitation to you. It’s a warm day, but you already know that there are year-round activities available, not just skiing and snowboarding.

After your visit, you drive home to Northridge Estates and think to yourself how lucky you are to live in such a beautiful home. With rising real estate prices all over British Columbia, you are thankful you found your little spot of paradise built with perfection by Ballard Fine Homes.
