FUSS-FREE LIV­ING IN EX­CEL TOWNHOMES

StarMetro Calgary - - SPECIAL FEATURE: NEW HOMES -

A dis­tinc­tive Dutch in­flu­ence and a com­mu­nity gar­den of­fer unique ap­peal for buy­ers seek­ing townhomes in the city’s south end.

Hol­land Park in Walden is one of Ex­cel Homes’ first town­home projects with condo fees.

“We usu­ally do sin­gle fam­ily or de­tached, or townhouses in (sur­round­ing) towns, but not in the city,” says Stephanie Chap­man, mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions spe­cial­ist for Ex­cel.

Once com­pleted, there will be 216 townhomes in 21 build­ings fea­tur­ing what Chap­man calls a “mod­ern, con­tem­po­rary and very clean Euro­pean min­i­mal­ist look” that stands out for its unique­ness but also fits within the Walden streetscape.

The three-storey townhomes will range from 1,177-1,452 square feet, with sev­eral floor plans, in­clud­ing two- and three­bed­room units, three-bed­room plus flex/den space, and some with dual mas­ter bath­rooms.

All units in the first phase have dou­ble rear-drive garages, with the re­main­ing units hav­ing tan­dem (one be­hind the other) garages, so all garages hold two cars.

Ex­cel isn’t re­leas­ing all floor plans at once, and not all are avail­able right away, but the com­pany soft-launched pre­con­struc­tion sales of 10 re­cently, with a grand open­ing last month.

Like the ex­te­ri­ors, Hol­land Park’s townhomes carry the clean, mod­ern, sim­plis­tic lines in­side, and fea­ture large win­dows through­out, nine-foot ceil­ings, quartz coun­ter­tops, Whirlpool stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances and Delta chrome fix­tures.

Two de­signer in­te­rior colour schemes are of­fered, and up­grades in­clude smart tech fea­tures such as a Nest Learn­ing Ther­mo­stat that ad­justs to tem­per­a­ture pref­er­ences and times of day for en­ergy ef­fi­ciency, wire­less key­less en­try, video door­bell and out­door se­cu­rity cam­era.
