When in search of a beautiful city to settle down in boasting proximity to some nice examples of Canada’s stunning nature, you might want to take a look at Abby, the largest municipality in the Fraser Valley. Located between Mount Baker and the Coast Mountains, it offers big city vibes with a rural flair. The Abbotsford real estate market is quite generous, featuring all types of properties ranging from budget-friendly nooks to luxury homes, all having one thing in common—spectacular views from every angle.
Here are three great homes currently up for sale offering agreeable views in the city they call the Raspberry Capital of Canada:
#1 305-32119 Old Yale Road, Abbotsford, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, $279,700
First up we have the most affordable property of the bunch, in the form of this lovely 2-bedroom top floor apartment, part of the Mouat-Royalty real estate market. Situated just outside the downtown core, the listing boasts easy access to schools, shops and parks.
The entire development complex has been recently renovated throughout, adding additional value and appeal to the property. Whilst the apartment boasts many impressive features, its highlight is definitely the spacious terrace which can be reached from the living area via double oversized glass doors. It looks out over some of the city’s main streets and the many large trees which are a feature here, not to mention some attractive parks that are in the vicinity.
#2 2480 Mendham Street, Abbotsford, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, $674,700
Second on our list is a 4-bedroom home located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the eastern part of the city, and it goes some way to explaining why Old Abbotsford real estate is so popular. The privacy and peacefulness of the house is further ensured by the mature shrubs around the lot.
Another fantastic feature of this amazing property is its well-maintained back yard, offering a charming outdoor oasis which the entire family will surely enjoy. Accessible from the bright and airy dining area, the generous wooden deck comes with enough space to host a small gathering of friends or family. From here you can access the inviting flower garden, with tall trees towering above it, ensuring enough shade on hot summer days.
#3 34481 Clayburn Road, Abbotsford, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, $1,199,999
Concluding our list is this impressive 3,341-square-foot home, located in the highly sought-after Matsqui real estate market in northern Abbotsford. It lies close to several schools, Clayburn, Bateman and Willband Creek parks, as well as Abbotsford Mission Highway, which connects the area to not only Downtown Abbotsford, but to other large cities as well.
The property is a rare find, thanks to its newly-upgraded interior and the oversized lot that comes with it. The huge back yard comes with a private fruit orchard, a partly-covered, spacious wooden deck with a barbecue area and a beautifully-maintained koi pond. It also boasts a professionally-built dog kennel, along with a large flat field, where you could leisurely put together a generous playground for your children or even build the workshop/tool-shed of your dreams.
