Sky’s the limit for town­houses

Ar­rive at Skyview Ranch in Cal­gary

Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - JOSH SKAPIN

Town­house decks can some­times leave one want­ing more. For fans of out­door en­ter­tain­ing and year-round bar­be­cue, deck space is a pri­or­ity.

A new showhome by Ar­rive at Skyview Ranch has that to of­fer ... and more.

The Nim­bus model comes com­plete with a broad, 13foot bal­cony.

In­side, an invit­ing, Ushaped gourmet kitchen with a break­fast bar opens into a din­ing area and liv­ing room on the main level of this three­floor plan.

The kitchen is el­e­gant, with full­height tile back­splash and solid maple cab­i­net doors. It also in­cludes 36-inch up­per cab­i­nets, a built-in, over-the-range mi­crowave and a pull­out spray faucet.

The open con­cept is ideal for host­ing guests, of­fer­ing a nat­u­ral flow from din­ner to a place to sit-down and catch up in front of the liv­ing room’s gas fire­place.

The front-fac­ing liv­ing room is high­lighted by large, low-e win­dows, com­plete with three inch win­dow trims. E stands for emis­siv­ity, a mea­sure of heat loss.

Space con­tin­ues to be a fo­cus, with nine-foot ceil­ings on both the main and sec­ond floor of the plan.

The sec­ond level in­cludes a be­d­room and rear-fac­ing mas­ter suite. A vaulted ceil­ing adds charm to the feel of the suite.

A mas­ter en­suite is an op­tion with the plan. The sec­ond floor also has a full bathroom with a dual-flush toi­let.

Rounded corner beads and four-inch base­boards are ex- am­ples of the home’s com­mit­ment to de­sign de­tail.

A den-and-a-half bathroom com­pletes the ground floor. The den is ideal as a home of­fice, serv­ing as a space for study­ing or work­ing from home.

Green con­cepts are a fo­cus in this unit, with a high-ef­fi­ciency water heater and fur­nace.

The home in­cludes an at­tached sin­gle-car garage with an in­su­lated door.

The town­house com­plex has plenty of charm, with ex­ten­sive stone ac­cents on an Arts and Crafts-style ex­te­rior.

A stylish U-shaped kitchen is part of the sec­ond floor of the unit.

The vaulted ceil­ing is an el­e­gant touch in the mas­ter be­d­room.

The sec­ond floor fea­tures a cosy fam­ily room with a gas fire­place.

An open con­cept floor plan of­fers a nat­u­ral flow be­tween the din­ing area and kitchen.

Above, a den area of­fers a home of­fice space on the ground floor. Be­low, a half bath and stair­case on the main floor.
