Grand­scape Homes moves right on in with show-stop­ping fea­tures and func­tion.

Equal in their ef­forts to cre­ate beau­ti­ful homes is Grand­scape’s com­mit­ment to their clients. “It is the key to our suc­cess as builders and to the suc­cess of your home,” ad­mit own­ers Tony and Lina Ribecco. The re­cip­i­ent of the 2016 Best of Houzz award for achiev­ing the high­est level of client sat­is­fac­tion, Grand­scape de­signs and builds each home with the ut­most at­ten­tion to qual­ity, crafts­man­ship, and value.

Builders of lux­ury of homes in Cal­gary and the sur­round­ing area for over eigh­teen years, their ded­i­ca­tion to in­tegrity de­fines Grand­scape through com­mu­ni­ca­tion that is paramount in each build. “We also en­sure the high­est level of qual­ity with the help of our tal­ented and long-stand­ing ar­ti­sans and trades­peo­ple.”

Time­less and el­e­gant, this clas­sis con­tem­po­rary home in St. An­drews Heights speaks to the evo­lu­tion of fam­ily. Be­yond a home that would be prac­ti­cal and invit­ing, the clients de­sired to ac­com­mo­date all stages of growth with mod­ern sus­tain­abil­ity that they would still be com­fort­able in twenty years from now. A sep­a­rate chil­dren’s wing with at­tached en­suites and walk-in clos­ets helps en­sure an en­joy­able jour­ney into a young adult­hood.

This two-story home fea­tures 4,727 square feet on three lev­els and hosts spa­ces that can be en­joyed as a fam­ily with in­di­vid­ual ar­eas for per­sonal growth and re­cre­ation. Af­ford­ing a seam­less oc­cu­pa­tion of util­ity and func­tion, all ar­eas are open and con­nected within its eye-catch­ing in­te­ri­ors. The base­ment fea­tures a home

theatre, golf sim­u­la­tor, and a gym en­hanced by a bar area with a beau­ti­ful birds-eye-view from the sec­ond floor. A pri­vate loft area fur­ther cap­tures a daz­zling view of Cal­gary’s sky­line.

De­light­fully in­no­va­tive in fea­ture and de­sign, the float­ing stair­case, golf sim­u­la­tor, and breeze­way that con­nects to the garage through a hid­den door in the kitchen, af­fords the unique at­trac­tions of cus­tom lux­ury.

Fea­tur­ing the tal­ent of Phase One De­sign, the home re­flects St. An­drews Heights chang­ing and tran­si­tional com­mu­nity of young fam­i­lies. “It blends in nat­u­rally with its clean, con­tem­po­rary lines,” notes Tony Ribecco.

Build­ing only a few homes each year al­lows Grand­scape the op­por­tu­nity to give their cus­tomers the in­di­vid­ual at­ten­tion needed to achieve their dream home.

“We en­joyed work­ing with two won­der­ful peo­ple who had a de­fined vi­sion of what they wanted their for­ever home to be,” says Tony. “The ultimate gift we shared was build­ing a close friend­ship with this fam­ily and hav­ing the joy of watch­ing them en­joy a space that our team cre­ated specif­i­cally for them.”

“Tony and Lina were great. They were part­ners with us in con­stant dis­cus­sions on how to op­ti­mize our vi­sion, which was a very en­joy­able part of the process,” shares the home­owner. “You can sense the qual­ity of what ev­ery­one put forth. Peo­ple made their best ef­forts from de­sign to con­cep­tion and I am very proud to call this house our home.”
