Why Any Mom Will Love The Residences

Big houses can be a lot of work, plus it’s tough to travel without worrying about everything inside of them. Did you know that there are homes available that are both spacious with lots of storage and yet still manageable enough so you can live the lock and go lifestyle without worry? If this sounds like something you would like, it may be high time to check out a beautiful home in The Residences.

You may be wondering “But if I decide to downsize, where will I put all my or my families’ stuff?” That’s one of many concerns you don’t have to think about as a mom when it comes to living in our luxurious homes at The Residences at Gateway. You can have the house of your dreams with all the comforts of a 5-star hotel, and when you choose to travel then everything in the home is looked after for you. If this sounds right up your alley, read on! Here are some more things about The Residences that we know Moms like you will love.

The Bedroom

All of our 1, 2, and 3 bedroom homes at The Residences will make even the Queen feel right at home as they all come with an AC installation. There is also the ability to control the heating and cooling in different rooms throughout your home. You can officially say goodbye to summer nights when you feels like your lost in the desert and hello to sleeping like you’ve found a much needed mom oasis!

The Bathroom

Whoever invented the idea of heated bathroom floors was a genius! And that’s exactly what any Mom like yourself can expect in our homes at The Residences at Gateway. Our bathrooms are on par with those installed in luxury hotels, as they come complete with Kohl fixtures and faucets, giant showers and bathtubs, and a floating vanity with under-the-cabinet lighting, to name a few. Now you can pamper yourself with a bubble bath or get ready for a night out to dinner in style!

The Kitchen

There are so many awesome things about our kitchens at The Residences. Not only will you have enough space and storage for cooking or entertaining your family and friends, but also our homes come complete with features you are unlikely to see in other places:

Built-in Wine Rack – a dream come true for anyone who is also a wine connoisseur!

Pantry – not only is our pantry handy for storage but also it slides out sideways from the cupboard. Great for anyone that likes to use many ingredients while they’re cooking!

Modern Appliances – including a Bosch integrated dishwasher, the Bertzazzoni Range with self-cleaning capabilities, and a Fisher & Paykel fridge with a built-in filtered water system and more storage than what meets the eye.

Space – our homes are big enough so that six people are seated comfortably at the dining table, both inside and outside on the patio, perfect for any family gathering. Mother’s Day is what some people call an “eating holiday”, so there’s plenty of room for you to eat and relax throughout the day!

Speaking of patios…the next best thing.

The Balcony

We can’t think of a better way for your much needed downtime as a mom then to spend your morning lounging on our spacious patios with a fresh cup of coffee or tea. The balcony is also big enough to host large, beautiful furniture as well as a barbecue. You can bring her plate outside while basking in the natural light and having a real taste of farm-to-table living!

If you have a green thumb and can’t bear the thought of not having a vegetable or herb garden, there’s no need to worry about that either. There are several potted plants that will be more than happy growing on our patios, so fresh food can be provided for yourself and your family and friends!

The Courtyard

If the balcony isn’t enough for you as a Mom as far as going outside is concerned, then you’re going to love this! The courtyard at The Residences at Gateway is a lush, Mediterranean-style garden, complete with a gazebo, a grotto, and even grape-filled arbours. We’re sure you’ll appreciate lounging in this slice of serenity while getting to know her neighbours at The Residences better.

The Laundry Room

When it comes time to do the laundry, your family needn’t worry about going out to the laundromat. Save money and time by using our in-suite storage/flex room or storage/laundry room. Depending on which suite you decides to move into at The Residences, there is an option to add some extra shelving and a cabinet sink next to the stacked washer and dryer, or an extra counter and overhead cabinets with the side-by-side washer and dryer. This applies to select suites only however, so if you have any questions about this, contact us!

The Ability to Declutter While Downsizing

Decluttering is becoming one of the biggest trends around for pretty much anyone who feels inclined to get rid of extra stuff. Most of those extras are things they don’t use anymore and are filling up that much-needed storage. If clutter is something your family may struggle with on a near-daily basis, downsizing to one of our homes may be just what you need in the long-term.

The Abbotsford Community

Abbotsford is growing steadily as an outgoing, loving community with its increasing population, unique shops, and even some events around the Residences that are well worth exploring. There is likely to be something cool happening whether for Mother’s Day or any day of the year, so keep your eyes peeled!

Whether you’re just coming over for a visit to your friend or family member’s home at The Residences or you’re looking to downsize without losing much-needed storage and space, we’re sure any mom will have a wonderful time in our homes.
