Nestled in the heart of East Courtenay, Crown Isle stands as the epitome of upscale living, a community where homes intertwine with the lush embrace of a Platinum-rated golf course. This prestigious neighborhood, flanked by the intersection of Ryan Road and Lerwick Drive in Courtenay East to the East and Anderton Road on the Comox Peninsula to the West, radiates luxury and sophistication.
A Tapestry of Exclusivity
Crown Isle is not just a residential enclave; it’s a masterpiece born from the visionary minds of two astute businessmen. Their acquisition of 871 acres just outside the Courtenay city boundary marked the genesis of what would become a meticulously crafted golf course community. The decision to blend residential living with a splendid 18-hole golf course was backed by comprehensive market studies, culminating in the unveiling of the course in two phases—the back nine holes in 1992 and the front nine in 1993.
Crowning Achievements: The Resort Center
Five years post the golf course’s inauguration, the Crown Isle Resort Center made its grand debut. Adorned with restaurants that offer panoramic views of the majestic Comox Glacier, this center has become the heartbeat of the community—a place where residents and visitors alike converge to savor not just the golfing experience but also the charm of the surroundings.
Gateways to Elegance
Crown Isle beckons through multiple gateways, each unveiling a different facet of this opulent community. Whether entering from Ryan Road near Cosco, taking the Malahat Drive from Lerwick Drive in proximity to Mark R Isfeld High School, or choosing the entrance from Idiens Way off Lerwick or Anderton Road, every path leads to a realm of exclusivity.
A Symphony of Home Varieties
The Crown Isle real estate market, germinating in the early 1990s, has evolved into a symphony of housing diversity. From single-family homes to stratas, including condos, patio homes, and bare land, the community offers a plethora of choices. The architectural tapestry is woven with residences gracing the golf course’s edges, some blessed with panoramic views of the Comox Glacier—a testament to the harmonious coexistence of nature and luxury.
Unveiling the Legacy: Continuous Development
The legacy of Crown Isle unfurls with each passing year. From the first MLS sale on Royal Vista Way in 1992 to the ongoing developments in Dover Place in 2010 and Lancashire Place in 2012, the community remains dynamic. Its allure, a blend of meticulously planned architecture and nature’s bounty, continues to attract those seeking not just a residence but an embodiment of elegance.
