The Ridge at Burke Mountain: Entertaining in Elegance

By Michelle Hopkins  November 8, 2019

Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain is a unique mountainside community. Named for British author and statesman Edmund Burke, it is one of the city’s fastest growing, emerging districts.

It is here where multiple award-winning builder, Foxridge Homes, is launching Phase 4 of The Ridge at Burke Mountain. 

“Foxridge has been building on Burke Mountain for 10 years,” says Sherry Whitter, Foxridge Homes project sales manager. “People who live here are drawn to its stunning mountainside location, yet they are only five or 10 minutes away from city centre.”

This exclusive collection of 15 executive style residences features three and four-bedroom homes, all boasting more than 3.360 square feet of luxurious living space. Each home is thoughtfully designed with professionally landscaped fenced yards, decks and attached double car garages.

“Phase Four has the most incredible views towards Simon Fraser University, and gorgeous westerly vistas,” says Whitter. 

The Ridge at Burke Mountain was conceived for entertaining in elegance. Each residence comes with high-end Platinum Collection finishes, including engineered hardwood floors on the main, contemporary linear gas fireplace in the great room, free-standing soaker tub in the master ensuite, vaulted ceilings in most master bedrooms, and gourmet kitchens featuring Bosch appliances and quartz countertops.

“Foxridge Homes also offers an upgrade option of finishing the basement or adding a legal suite, perfect for in-laws, guests or as a mortgage helper,” says Whitter.

Buyers have exclusive access to the Foxridge Design Centre – where they can personalize and customize their new home - from the colour of the flooring and walls to faucets, cabinets and counters, right down to tiles and mirror frames.

“Our Design Centre allows home buyers’ personalities to shine through,” says Whitter. “They can choose from gold or black cabinet hardware, the colour of stain on the engineered hardwood or upgrade to a wider plank hardwood … there are endless choices.”  

Within the next two years, the master planned community will be showcased by Burke Mountain Village – a Whistler’ish village with a community centre and a vibrant public plaza boasting a grocery store, restaurants, services, yoga studio, shops and more.

Outdoor enthusiasts, you are at the doorstep to dozens of parks and playgrounds, extensive hiking trails, streams, and the Pinecone Burke Provincial Park. In addition, getting in and out of Coquitlam has never been easier. It is a five-minute drive to the Millennium Line SkyTrain, and with no bridges or tunnels to contend with, getting to Downtown Vancouver is nearly stress-free.

Foxridge Homes has built a reputation for designing classic, energy efficient homes for today’s busy families. Known for innovation, inspired floor plans, and a wonderful sense for colour and texture, they build homes that echo the way people live, work and play.

The Ridge at Burke Mountain Sales Centre and show home, located at 1438 Mitchell St., Coquitlam, is open Saturday to Wednesday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, email:,  phone 778-285-6299 or visit These stunning homes in Phase 4 start at $1.5 million.  Occupancy is slated to begin in August 2020 to spring 2021.
