A Flair for Liv­ing

Sng-devel­op­ment of­fers ex­cit­ing al­ter­na­tives and up­scale at­ti­tude.

Part­ners Nick Sherby and Jay Ge­fen are two friends who honed their skills over­seas, cre­at­ing lux­ury con­dos and cus­tom fam­ily homes in Europe with over ten years of ex­pe­ri­ence in real es­tate devel­op­ment. “We are proud to bring our ex­per­tise and fresh, ad­vanced de­signs from all over the world to Cal­gary,” ad­mits Nick Sherby, a builder of unique style, qual­ity fin­ishes, and a pas­sion for the cus­tom home in­dus­try.

For the past three years SNG has es­tab­lished a loyal team of ex­pe­ri­enced trades and sup­pli­ers in Cal­gary to ad­vance this stan­dard through de­sir­able fin­ishes and el­e­gant dé­cors, of­fer­ing ex­cit­ing al­ter­na­tives within bound­aries. Lo­cated in Al­ta­dore, this 3,500 square foot, two-story, show home with fin­ished base­ment ex­hibits taste and up­scale at­ti­tude within an open lay­out en­hanced by mul­ti­ple at­trac­tions.

A wide in­fill that evokes a re­mark­ably spa­cious feel, de­signer Brent El­ler­godt tweaked an ex­ist­ing de­sign to cre­ate a flex­i­ble home of fluid func­tion. “The liv­ing spa­ces are larger than what you would nor­mally find in an in­fill, with con­tem­po­rary style and bright, clean-lined in­te­ri­ors that en­gage

un­ob­structed sight lines that sus­tain a sense of gen­eros­ity,” de­scribes the prin­ci­pal of Brent El­ler­godt De­sign. Ap­peal­ing to a wide de­mo­graphic with its sim­ple el­e­ments and no-fuss fea­tures, vis­i­tors fre­quently com­ment on the home’s am­ple flows, which is aug­mented by its mul­ti­ple tem­pered glass fin­ishes, al­low­ing abun­dant light flows through­out the home.

Fea­tur­ing a base­ment that sus­tains its bright, mod­ern dé­cor, a gym, wine cel­lar, and full wet bar with a re­laxed lounge area pro­vides func­tion and en­ter­tain­ment with an added bonus room on the up­per floor of­fer­ing flex space po­ten­tial. “The home was de­signed to ac­com­mo­date a fam­ily with two or three kids,” says Jay Ge­fen of its four bed­rooms, abun­dant stor­age, and south-fac­ing yard that in­cludes a two-car garage with re­cre­ation ve­hi­cle park­ing.

Tall ceil­ings and an open stair­case with a de­light­ful birds-eye­view from above, height­ens the draw of this al­lur­ing home. En­ergy sav­ings was fur­ther ad­dressed with triple-pane win­dows, max­i­mized in­su­la­tion, and low flow toi­lets. Warmed floors in the base­ment and master en­suite also en­sure com­fort.

“Peo­ple are drawn to its unique fea­tures, like the glass wall di­vider in the master bed­room and the high qual­ity fin­ishes used. We didn’t cut cor­ners,” adds Sherby whose foray into warm con­tem­po­rary de­sign is equally matched by their ex­per­tise with tra­di­tional con­cepts. “Vis­i­tors also love the smooth flows of the huge kitchen that is a great gath­er­ing spot with its seven­teen-foot is­land. We wanted to pro­vide some­thing out­side of the box, some­thing less main­stream and more so­phis­ti­cated in its pre­sen­ta­tion.”

This home is cur­rently for sale for $1,599,888. To view by ap­point­ment only, please con­tact Sam Olschewski of Re­max at (403) 585-1291.

White oak, en­gi­neered hard­woods sur­face the main floor, in­clud­ing the great room where El­do­rado Sil­ver Lin­ing stack stone adorns the gas fire­place chase.

At en­try the glass-en­cased den com­bines bright flows and vis­ually open con­tours for a translu­cent set­ting.

The solid, white oak stair­case pro­vides a warm yet trans­par­ent ad­di­tion to dé­cor charm with tem­pered glass and stain­less steel rail­ings.

The master en­suite fea­tures a glass par­ti­tion and slid­ing barn door for trans­par­ent views into spa-like lux­ury. Warmed ce­ramic tile floors climb walls, back­splash, bath sur­round, and steam shower com­forts with bench seat­ing. Raised ves­sel sinks host chrome faucets above Cae­sar­stone coun­ter­tops in Vivid White. A float­ing dual van­ity dis­plays chan­nel pulls with ad­di­tional light af­forded by a clerestory win­dow above.
