The Langley builder who created the 2022 PNE prize home is pleased with the results.
“It really turned out beautiful,” Sean Tilstra, vice-president of Wesmont Homes, told the Langley Advance Times during a Wednesday morning tour of the 3,408 sq. ft. three-level house, located in a new Langley neighbourhood.
A Tuscan-themed design features open spaces, rustic roof beams with high-end appliances and fixtures, and includes a one-bedroom, one-bathroom legal basement suite that can serve as a mortgage helper or a place for in-laws, Tilstra explained.
Top-end features include a “smart house” system, an EV charger, 12 solar panels, triple-pane windows and an all-electric heat pump system to warm and cool the house.
“Some builders in the area think we spent too much,” Tilstra commented – but he doesn’t agree.
It is the first time in the PNE prize home’s 88-year history, that it has been located in Langley.
Reservations were being taken for in-person tours of the house online at pneprizehome.ca/guided-tours.
As well, fair visitors will be able to tour a mock-up suite that duplicates the house.
In addition to the grand prize, ticket purchasers have the chance to win one of five Chevrolet vehicles, $100,000 in total cash prizes, a Sport Trek Travel Trailer from Woody’s RV World, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle or two Harley-Davidson electric bicycles from Trev Deeley Motorcycles, a $50,000 Yaletown Interiors gift certificate, and a hot tub package from Beachcomber Hot Tubs Group.
Tickets for the home and other prizes can be purchased by phoning 604-678-4663 or 1-877-946-4663 or going online at pneprizehome.ca.
