The Mint is a new eight-unit multi-family townhouse complex in Aldergrove.

‘The Mint’ – luxurious family townhomes in Aldergrove

The Mint in downtown Aldergrove is a very attractive "Modern Tudor" development and the quality is more than skin-deep.

The Mint in downtown Aldergrove is a very attractive “Modern Tudor” development of eight new family townhomes and the quality is more than skin-deep.

Marketed by The Schacter Team of Re/Max Treeland Realty, Joel Schacter says the construction and design features of The Mint rival those offered in custom homes.

Builder Hari Bandesha, owner of Reno Quality Homes, has incorporated design features and finishes in The Mint such as double-wide garages, Juliette balconies, quartz stone countertops, nine-foot ceilings with crown moldings, and tankless hot water heating and domestic supply systems … upgrades that are not usually available in townhome living today.

The three levels of each unit include an office/den and a combined laundry room and washroom on the ground floor behind the double garage. A full-size front load stacker and washer is included in the sale price. The office is ideal for a home-based business, and has a separate rear entrance.

The main living area on the second floor is open-concept, with a kitchen, dining and living space, along with a washroom.

Kitchen cabinets are custom-crafted maple with solid plywood boxes, and all doors and drawers are “soft close.” The countertops, including the island, are engineered quartz, and the back splash behind the under-mounted double basin stainless steel sink is glass tile. Appliances are included in the sale prices, and consist of a stainless steel two-door Frigidaire unit with ice maker, a ceramic-top stove and dishwasher.

Floors are wood laminate throughout and recessed lighting is complemented by chandeliers to highlight areas such as the kitchen island. Natural light is plentiful too, from the windows and the glass door that opens to the tiny “Juliette” balcony. The living rooms also feature fireplaces, gas-powered in the four end units and electric in the four middle units.

There is also a covered back deck, perfect for sitting in the open air and enjoying a barbecue — and if you purchase a unit before the end of April, the developer will give you a new barbecue too.

The third floor has three bedrooms as well as two full bathrooms, including the master bedroom ensuite. The bedrooms are comfortably sized and all closets are equipped with swing doors — no bi-folds.

All windows are equipped with designer two-inch faux-wood horizontal blinds and the double 2×4 insulated party wall system and engineered TJI silent floor joist system ensure everyone’s peace and privacy.

Each unit offers 1,548 to 1,593 square feet of living space, and prices, including all appliances and GST, range from $349,900 to $359,000.

“With a minimum of five per cent down, $17,500, monthly payments would be $1,592.34 (based on a 25-year mortgage at 3.09 per cent on a five-year term),” notes Schacter. “That’s the same amount you’d pay in rent but you’d be investing to own it as $738 of that monthly payment would go to the principal.”

Townhouses have been retaining their values in the local real estate market, and purchasers can also feel confident in the quality of The Mint. Bandesha has been building homes in Langley and surrounding communities as a registered New Home Warranty builder with National Warranty, boasting zero claims against him since he started his company over 20 years ago.

As part of Reno Quality Home’s ongoing involvement in giving back to the community and globally, both Reno Quality Homes and The Schacter Team will be contributing funds from the proceeds of sale for each unit towards building four complete homes for families in extreme poverty in Guatemala. Joel Schacter will be flying to Guatemala in October of this year and personally assisting in the construction of these homes through Bethel Ministries, as well as distributing food, vitamins, clothing, and wheelchairs for the disabled.

The Mint units are available for viewing by appointment or on weekends when they will be open from 1 to 4:30 p.m. The address is 27234 – 30 Avenue.
