The Life of Style
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.”
