Grand­scape Homes finds the bal­ance within set­ting, style, and func­tion.

Em­brac­ing a pic­turesque, two-acre lot en­hanced by fresh moun­tain breezes, Grand­scape Homes ven­tures be­yond Cape Cod charm to cap­ture the bright side of craft and char­ac­ter. En­trusted with a rep­u­ta­tion for friendly and ef­fi­cient cus­tomer ser­vice, Grand­Scape Homes builds on trust and in­tegrity that ex­ceeds ex­pec­ta­tions. “This is the client’s sec­ond home with us, which is not un­com­mon as we have had many re­peat build re­la­tion­ships,” says Lina Ribecco, who with hus­band Tony have en­joyed a builder part­ner­ship that has flour­ished since 2000. A bou­tique, cus­tom home­builder of high-end acreage and cus­tom in­ner city homes in Cal­gary, Grand­scape se­lec­tively caters to each client’s unique vi­sion. “We have de­vel­oped a team that al­lows us to achieve a level of sat­is­fac­tion that oth­ers now rely upon,” shares Lina and Tony Ribecco.

Nes­tled in the lush mead­ows of Spring­bank, this res­i­dence ad­dresses a house­hold’s de­sire for am­ple win­dows that en­gage bright in­te­ri­ors and riv­et­ing views. “Style-wise, we wanted an East Coast flair that would be awash in light through­out the day,” ex­plain the home­own­ers. Tak­ing ad­van­tage of its set­ting with gen­er­ous decks and glaz­ing, this two-story home de­liv­ers the hos­pi­tal­ity and proven ap­peal of its time­less ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign.

“The wife had a keen sense of what she wanted, which al­lowed the job to go very smoothly, work­ing one-on-one with Tony,” re­calls Lina Ribecco. “She de­sired a very open con­cept Cape Cod de­sign that would ap­pear as if it had al­ways been there.” Cap­tur­ing an el­e­gant and invit­ing am­bi­ence, its com­fort­able and en­ter­tain­ing flows cater to the needs of a young, grow­ing fam­ily. Po­si­tioned on a lot that eas­ily ac­com­mo­dates its broad façade, wrap-around ve­ran­das and an out­door fire­place fur­ther en­hance the en­joy­ment of the out­doors with 360-de­gree panoramic views.

Show­cas­ing 6,200 square feet on three de­vel­oped levels, the own­ers were well re­searched and in­volved in se­lec­tions that host an ap­peal­ing and hos­pitable vi­sion of home. Af­ter fine-tun­ing a de­sign and adding their own Grand­scape touches, they achieved what was de­sired. “The clients

Cus­tom painted, solid wood cab­i­nets de­fine a brightly en­gag­ing kitchen dé­cor where Car­rera mar­ble coun­ter­tops and co­he­sive millwork whitens a win­ning style. Host­ing a side but­ler’s pantry to ex­tend al­ready gen­er­ous ca­pac­i­ties, de­tails steal the show with a stain­less steel apron sink and hood fan fea­tures that com­ple­ment fix­tures. Quar­ter- sawn oak hard­woods add a warm and rus­tic con­trast with an­chor­ing charm.

Cape Cod style is com­ple­mented with cedar shin­gle sid­ing and pil­lar de­tails shel­tered by steep roof pitches clad in ar­chi­tec­tural asphalt. Kayu batu ex­otic wood sur­faces the wrap- around deck of this home with at­tached four- car garage.
