A Walk on the Quiet Side

This gentle, family-friendly townhome community offers nature and peace but also all the amenities you need.

On a quiet street surrounded by mature trees, a park, walking and biking trails is Clayton Walk, Anthem’s newest community of 143 family townhomes in the Clayton Heights neighbourhood in Surrey.

“We love this area,” says Elva Kim, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Anthem. “It’s close to schools, playing fields, shopping and transit, but when you open your front door at Clayton Walk, the first thing you see is nature. Families told us they want to establish roots here, so we built homes for growing families.”

Adding a modern twist to the historic architecture of Prairie-style homes – with its broad, gently defined window elements, overhangs and clean lines – Clayton Walk’s two-, three- and four-bedroom homes fit seamlessly into the revitalized East Clayton neighbourhood.

Ranging up to 1,658 square feet, these homes were thoughtfully designed with families in mind. The open-concept interiors feature gourmet kitchens with large pantries and kitchen islands, main-floor powder rooms, cascading windows in the stairwells that flood the homes with all-day natural light, plenty of storage and nine-foot ceilings. Spacious decks open up from the kitchen, and downstairs are side-by-side garages.

There is also an amenity building with indoor and outdoor entertainment areas, perfect for families to gather, enjoy and entertain with friends and neighbours.

This is Anthem’s third community in this Surrey neighbourhood. The first was Rockwoods, which outsold every other townhome community in the city. Fleetwood Rise is Anthem’s second community, a few blocks away from Rockwoods, and it’s selling quickly.

The neighbourhood is increasingly becoming a popular place to live for first time buyers and young families, because of location and value. The City of Surrey recognizes how quickly the area is growing, and has committed to building a new elementary school just a few blocks away from Clayton Walk.

“We wanted to help build a community with family at its core,” adds Kim. “Kids at Clayton Walk can ride their bikes to school, families can walk to the park, to the shops, and transit is close by.”

Clayton Walk is more than just a home. It’s a family-friendly neighbourhood next to Clayton Park with baseball and soccer fields and a Lawn Bowling Club. A secondary school is a short walking trail away, and it’s centrally located with easy access to the Port Mann Bridge, Fraser Highway and Highway 1.

Clayton Walk is built by Anthem, a real estate development, investment and management company that strives, solves and evolves to create better spaces and strong communities. Anthem’s growing residential portfolio includes more than 10,000 homes that are complete, in design or under construction, from masterplanned communities to townhomes and single-family communities.

The Clayton Walk Sales Centre, located at 18505 Laurenson Place (185th & Fraser Hwy.) Surrey, is open daily from noon to 5pm except for Friday.
