Prairie Promi­nence

Best Home (Canada) - - Front Page -

Aacrop­o­lis Homes con­sis­tently brings warmth and glam­our into our lives with sleek style.

Aplace of warmth, glam­our, and in­escapable style, Aacrop­o­lis Homes en­sures that each home they build is as func­tional and ef­fi­cient as they are beau­ti­ful. Fea­tur­ing a trade­mark de­sign of bold el­e­ments ac­cented by re­fined de­tails, their qual­ity of work­man­ship is sec­ond to none.

“Our spec­tac­u­lar Keswick show home is a real stun­ner,” states Kevin Ken­tel, Vice-pres­i­dent of Op­er­a­tions. “It’s pop­u­lar­ity and wow fac­tor truly com­ple­ments the amaz­ing new Keswick on the River com­mu­nity in South­west Ed­mon­ton.” Founded over 25 years ago, Aacrop­o­lis Homes is a builder whose com­mit­ment per­son­i­fies the cus­tom ideals of unique de­sign, lux­ury, and su­pe­rior crafts­man­ship.

The Cos­mos hosts a warm yet mod­ern ambience that is re­flected in its rich, alder mill­work. Art­fully de­signed with the as­sis­tance of Barb Kryza­lka of De­sign by Barb, she states, “Aacrop­o­lis had a vi­sion of a Mod­ern Prairie home with warm alder through­out that coun­ters the mod­ern sen­si­bil­ity of con­crete-look sur­faces.” Host­ing a va­ri­ety of unique fin­ishes that in­clude slat wood walls for a burst of colour, pre­mium fin­ishes and cut­ting-edge ad­vances in technology are all hall­marks of an Aacrop­o­lis home.

Slop­ing roofs with wide, over­hang­ing eaves char­ac­ter­ize this home of the Ital­ianate style of Keswick, with pic­turesque aes­thet­ics com­bin­ing a simple, straight build­ing form with prom­i­nent brick fea­tures. “Keswick is a great com­mu­nity. The de­vel­op­ers have done a tremen­dous job of con­nect­ing the ar­eas with walk­ing paths and it’s laid out beau­ti­fully,” shares Ken­tel. Fam­ily-ori­ented with in­ge­nious open flows the base­ment hosts con­sis­tent style that in­vites ca­sual gath­er­ings with a wet bar, games and lounge ar­eas, and a gym. “This model fea­tures three bed­rooms and has the flex­i­bil­ity to al­low us to add bed­rooms or ad­just the de­sign to ac­com­mo­date dif­fer­ent life­styles,” adds Ken­tel.

Show­cas­ing a walk­out de­sign with 2,825 square feet on the top two lev­els and a 1,252-square-foot base­ment, it fur­ther af­fords a side drive and triple-car garage to sat­isfy space for recre­ational ve­hi­cles. “Our vis­i­tors love the feel of this home which is not cold or bland. With clean lines it is mod­ern but hosts a calm ambience with great views at the back.”

Ded­i­cated to their phi­los­o­phy that ‘It’s not just a house. It’s your home,’ Aacrop­o­lis be­lieves that build­ing your own home is a unique op­por­tu­nity and a chance to cre­ate some­thing spe­cial that truly re­flects you. Re­ceiv­ing the very best stan­dard of crafts­man­ship from their sub­con­trac­tors, they have built their rep­u­ta­tion on sat­is­fy­ing client’s needs and wishes.

Since 1990 Aacrop­o­lis Homes has been com­mit­ted to the de­sign and con­struc­tion of ex­clu­sive homes in Ed­mon­ton for a dis­cern­ing clien­tele. “When it’s time to make your place in the world,” states Gerry Wake­field, “We can help you live up to your ex­pec­ta­tions.”
