Langley isn't Vancouver, and that distinction is exactly what nature lovers of the west coast may be seeking.

Those looking to buy a home can likely get more space in Langley, for a significantly lower price than what it would cost in Vancouver. And, Langley will soon be even better connected to the rest of Metro Vancouver with the upcoming Surrey-Langley SkyTrain Extension.

One other perk: where in Vancouver can you get a large property with private access to a beautiful lake? (The answer? Nowhere.) But that's exactly what you can get in Langley, specifically with a home currently on the market for just under $6M, located at 2888 204 Street. Literally next to Rees Lake, the abode is about a 10-minute drive from the future site of 203 Street SkyTrain Station.

The gated property was originally built in 1988, but went through extensive renovations and upgrades in 2018. It's home to five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a generous 4,616 sq. ft of living space, all across a 2-acre lakefront lot.

The home was designed by an award-winning interior designer, has been featured in a prominent home decor magazine, and has reportedly been in a few movies as well, with a potential $10,000/week revenue stream remaining a real possibility. (Thank the lake.)

Leading into the home is a sizeable front porch, supported by strong wooden columns. On the ground floor you'll find a spacious and modern kitchen with minimalistic cupboards, as well as a few artistic storage compartments. Off to the side of the dining area is also a little wet bar area, perfect for post-meal drinks.

The living and lounge area is also quite spacious, matched by equally-large windows that look out onto the patio and beautiful lake. From the inside, it almost feels like you're living on an island.


On the upper level you'll find most of the bedrooms, with the primary featuring a deep walk-in closet, as well as an elegant bathroom with a steam shower and counters and cupboards that match those of the kitchen downstairs.

And for family or friends who visit, the property includes a fully-equipped guest suite with a full kitchen, dining area, living area, laundry room, and bedroom that may be larger than some apartments in Vancouver (and can be rented out, legally).

Our Favourite Thing

This home has a really beautiful living room. It's spacious, boasts tremendous views of the yard and lake, but it also has some thoughtful design flourishes such as the alcove TV and shelf space, as well as a side wall composed of exposed brick -- always a nice touch.

Then there are the details, such as the built-in central vacuum system, central air conditioning, in-floor heating, smart septic system, high-end home security system, indoor and outdoor home theatre speaker system, as well as electric-motor-powered dock down by the lake... views of which can be enjoyed from the sprawling deck, outdoor-roofed dining area, and lower yard.

Really, what more could you need?
