Rated as the jewel of the West Coast, the Sunshine Coast is known for its beauty, vibrant arts community and year round outdoor lifestyle. Residents and tourists seek out its shores and coastal hideaways as a means to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Is it time for you to do the same?

With the current extremely active real estate market on the Sunshine Coast, we are seeing an acceleration in a “Great Migration” from expensive and tax-heavy regions and major cities, into demand in smaller communities away from cities. Home owners from across Canada are more and more interested in a home at the foot of the mountains near the beach or overlooking the ocean, and it’s an exciting shift that Touchstone is poised to support. 

Touchstone at Gospel Rock offers a residential mix unlike anywhere else on the Sunshine Coast. The Residences and The Townhomes, selling now, and Single Family Homesites coming soon, are all tied into the Village. With traffic-calmed streets that are laid out for jaw-dropping views and enhanced sun exposure, the Village with its Hotel and Plaza was designed to promote community spirit and create a welcoming experience for all visitors.

Here’s 5 Reasons to make The Residences at Touchstone Your Next Home:

Unbeatable Views: Enjoy expansive views of Howe Sound and the Salish Sea from many of the home’s patios and decks. There’s more though, picture yourself enjoying a sunrise with your morning coffee or taking an evening stroll to Cross Rock lookout as the sun slowly drops into the glistening sea. Stare out over the expanse, as you watch sailboats and cruise ships roll by, and if you listen closely you can enjoy the songs of sea lions below. With three protected parks also located at  Touchstone, it’s the year-round access you’ve always wished you could have to astonishing panoramic views.

Gourmet Kitchens: Is there a Chef or avid entertainer in the family? Then you’re going to love the ease of hosting your guests and loved ones in comfort and style. The gourmet kitchens will delight the seasoned and aspiring chefs alike. Even the little ones can position themselves at counter height to whip up their favorite freshly baked cookies. Featuring a dining peninsula/island, durable quartz stone countertops, porcelain tile backsplash, a premium stainless steel appliance package, contemporary-styled cabinetry and open cookbook shelf in some homes, you will savour entertaining family and guests.

Close to Amenities:: The cultural and social centre of the community, Touchstone Plaza welcomes visitors to the Village, providing landscaped grounds for community events, live music and art. Take an art stroll and visit artist studios in residence, sit on the café patio savouring a cappuccino with a friend or drop by the local general store to pick up a few key ingredients for dinner. It’s all here, at Touchstone.
