Downsizing or just love big rooms and lots of space? Consider calling Windgate Court home. Ideally situated near Blundell Road and Minoru Boulevard, walking distance to Richmond Center, Windgate Court is a collection of 64 large two and three bedroom condos that was built in 1988. The 16 ground floor one-level units are set up like townhouses with a private yard, front door and back door which leads directly into the parking garage for easy access. Units on the second and third floors are built around two private garden areas and are linked to the lobby by outdoor walkways. The unique plan puts windows on at least two sides of each condo on the second and third floor. Four of the third floor units have lofts. The roof was redone in 2010 and this year the building is undergoing balcony upgrades. There is a shortcut to No 3 Road from the building for easy access to the bus.
Windgate was designed for owner occupiers -- just one rental is allowed. The bylaws allow one cat or dog weighing up to 20 kg (additional pets or larger pets require council approval). Each unit has a storage locker on the parking level. The main entrance has a circular driveway for easy drop offs and pick ups, a lobby with chairs (perfect spot for a visit with neighbors or for waiting for rides), and the main elevator which is beside the mailboxes. The second east elevator is located on the other side of the building. Both elevators access the parking garage. The east elevator is used for moving. There is covered visitor parking at the entrance to resident parking just before the gate. The maintenance fee includes unlimited hot water and gas for each unit's fireplace.
Windgate Court is for all ages of residents. Richmond Secondary is located a short walk away down Minoru Boulevard; Ferris Elementary is also nearby.
