A new townhouse complex a stone's throw from the banks of North Vancouver's spectacular Lynn Creek is redefining connection to the natural environment.

The Connect at Nature's Edge development, located in the Lynnmour neighbourhood near Capilano University, will give residents immediate access to the renowned natural beauty of the North Shore, within immediate reach of urban amenities such as schools and shopping.

But it's not just the view and walking trails that mark Brody Development Group's 32 townhomes as “green.”

Designed by the award-winning Integra Architecture, Connect at Nature’s Edge features West Coast-style design to high environmental standards — with houses that are certified Platinum level “Built Green.” That means they're energy efficient, built sustainably, and reduce water and construction waste.

“This affinity with nature inspires Brody to create warm, enduring developments, making optimum use of natural materials and traditional construction techniques,” the project's website says, “while also presenting contemporary features and detailing with an urban edge.”

The three-bedroom houses range in price from $619,900 to $684,900 and offer home warranties of 2, 5 and 10 years.

They include double-car garages, a variety of spacious layouts for your family's needs, and special features such as high efficiency natural gas-fired hot water on demand and an advanced heat recovery ventilation system to cut your energy bills.

Keep your feet warm with in-floor heating in the bathrooms, which are floored with slate as are the kitchen and entry areas.

With the neighbourhood's landscaping “thoughtfully” blended with the North Shore's natural beauty by Forma Design, Connect at Nature's Edge will let you kick back on your generous balcony - some units even have two - and take in the wondrous surroundings.

View the presentation centre at 757 Orwell St., North Vancouver 1-4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays or by appointment, or visit the website at connectatnorthshore.com.
