A home on a high perch is a hotticket item in Evan­sRidge.

Since launch­ing May 4, Cal­bridge Homes’ mod­ern lux­ury town­home pro­ject, Van­tage on Evan­sRidge, has gar­nered much at­ten­tion.

“We’re close to a third sold,” says area sales man­ager Mario Dev­cic.

The pro­ject will con­tain 20 build­ings, with four to six units in each. Of the 78 units in the de­vel­op­ment, 26 have sold.

With only a hand­ful of units re- main­ing in the first build­ings, the sec­ond phase of four build­ings re­cently be­gan sales.

Van­tage of­fers two floor plans. The Gemini end unit con­tains 1, 462 square feet with den — or 1,365 square feet with­out the den — and starts at $325,000, in­clud­ing GST, in the first phase.

The Orion in­side unit has 1, 430 square feet with den, or 1,334 square feet with­out the den. It starts at $323,000 in the sec­ond phase.

Both the Orion and the Gemini come with a choice of three-bed­room or two mas­ter bed­room con­fig­u­ra­tions on the third floor.

The ground-floor den could also act as an­other bed­room. Each unit comes with an at­tached two-car garage.

Pur­chasers range from first­time home­buy­ers to empty nesters who want to stay in north­west Calgary.

“We’re notic­ing a lot of cus­tomers com­ing from Panorama Hills and the Hamp­tons,” says Dev­cic. “The Hamp­tons ones are quite in­ter­est­ing be­cause they are re­peat buy­ers of Cal­bridge who bought homes (in the Hamp­tons) 15 to 20 years ago.”

Cal­bridge Homes has plans to build show suites that are slated to open in Fe­bru­ary. Ex­ca­va­tion on the first build­ings is ex­pected to start in Au­gust.

The mod­ern in­te­ri­ors in­clude wide-plank lam­i­nate hard­wood floor­ing on the main liv­ing level, a pre­mium stain­less-steel kitchen ap­pli­ance pack­age by Whirlpool, and maple or ther­mo­foil flat slab or Shaker-style cab­i­nets.

They also in­clude front-load, high-ef­fi­ciency wash­ers and dry­ers, and knock-down ceil-

The ex­te­rior in­cludes fade-, dam­age- and fire-re­sis­tant James Hardie fi­bre ce­ment sid­ing, over­sized en­ergy-ef­fi­cient win­dows, and a cov­ered bar­be­cue deck off the kitchen area with a gas bar­be­cue rough-in.

The stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tions are high, so adding all the up­grades pos­si­ble to­tals at most around $17,000, says Dev­cic.

Van­tage’s lo­ca­tion has much to rec­om­mend it.

“Be­ing right on the ridge in Evan­sRidge, we over­look Sy­mons Val­ley Ranch,” says Dev­cic.

“We have a great view of the val­ley and the moun­tains. The site backs onto the ridge, sides onto green space and fronts a fu­ture school site.

“Lo­ca­tion-wise, we’re not sur­rounded by a bunch of sin­gle­fam­ily homes look­ing down on you, not sur­rounded by apart- ments and not sur­rounded by com­mer­cial. It re­ally is its own lit­tle en­clave on the hill.”
