The Perch neighborhood is nestled on a mountainside overlooking the eastern Fraser Valley. This vista with its stunning views is surrounded by green space and a network of trails. Walking distance to parks, the neighborhood itself is a pleasure to stroll through. The proximity to schools and amenities is convenient, yet the setting itself has a calmness, removed from the noise and buzz of the main hub.
Chilliwack is a unique merging point in the eastern Fraser Valley, where west-coast living blends with agricultural and farming life, nestled in the natural beauty of surrounding mountains, lakes and rivers. It is an energizing setting that inspires creativity, activity and so much more.
A Connection With Nature: Chilliwack’s close proximity to mountains, lakes and rivers offers access to recreational areas, walking, cycling and hiking trails, naturally promotes an active lifestyle. With two large recreational centers, a newly opened YMCA recreation center, Twin Rinks and Prospera Center, there are recreational opportunities year-round.
Farm To Table: Living in Chilliwack allows you to skip the over-crowded urban farmer’s markets found in the larger cities and go directly to the farming source. Organic, locally grown foods are easily sourced, with many offering country store fronts for farm direct pick-up. Fresh dairy products and free-range eggs, meat and poultry, fruit, berries and wine, mountain meadow honey and locally roasted organic coffee are just some of the locally sourced items that are enjoyed by the Chilliwack residents.
Sip, Savour & Dine: The creativity of the culinary arts happens quite organically in a farm-to-table region. Tasting rooms abound in Chilliwack, and the experience starts with our local boutique breweries including, Old Yale Brewing Co, Field House Brewing, Brick Layer Brewing and Flashback Brewing, as well as Royal Kombucha Brew House. For the more refined palette, BC Urban Kitchen & Wine Bar offers world class B.C. wines, paired with local ingredients.
In addition to the crowd-pleasing favorites like Brown’s Social House and Earls, Chilliwack has a great variety of owner-operated restaurants ranging from East Indian cuisine to Sushi. Foodies will make the drive just to dine at Frankie’s Italian Kitchen or Bravo Restaurant, each with their own signature style.
Boutique Shops & Cafés: Affordable retail space has given opportunity for a growing community of artisanal shops, boutiques and cafés offering a sidewalk shopping experience. Boutiques include The Button Box, Pick Eco Refills, Payton & Buckle Shoes, Circa Vintage Finds, The Rustic Soap Company, and the soon to open Spruce Collective. Pause to enjoy a cup of your favorite hot beverage at one of several cafés along the way, like Decades, Harvest Bakery & Café or Birdies Café, to name a few. With the new laneway shops in Old Chilliwack soon to be open, more shops and cafes will be added.
Enhance your life with where you live.
This is just a glance of the Chilliwack lifestyle, and there is so much more. With the traditional work/home model being re-invented, more thought is being put into where our homes are located. Our personal space and how it contributes to our quality of life and well-being is being prioritized like never before. Space and openness have become a strong need, both in the home and in our surroundings. A home based largely on its proximity to our place of work is giving way to fill a much bigger need: Does your home, and the location of it, enhance your health, wellness and improve your life? Think about it.
