Af­ford­able town­homes in Sage Creek

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES - By Todd Lewys

MANY new-home buy­ers as­sume $350,000 — or more — is needed to ac­quire a new home in a cut­ting-edge com­mu­nity. That’s not the case in Sage Creek, said Street­side De­vel­op­ments’ Jessica Wil­lis. “We’re very ex­cited about Bluestem Town­homes, which are lo­cated at 301-1555 Des Hiver­nants Blvd.,” she said. “They’re a col­lec­tion of three-storey town­homes that start at just $278,000, in­clud­ing GST. Sev­eral of the town­homes are in spe­cial lo­ca­tions fac­ing on to na­tive grass­lands, and a num­ber of the units are move-in ready.” Bluestem Con­do­mini­ums — three build­ings are com­plete, with another six to come — of­fers six dif­fer­ent floor plans (Cedar 1, Cedar 2, Elm­vale, Rain­tree, Ta­ma­rack and Wil­low) that will range in size from 1,046 square feet (Cedar 1) to 1,552 sq. ft. (Ta­ma­rack). Floor plans will fea­ture ei­ther two bed­rooms, or two bed­rooms plus den in larger mod­els. In­te­ri­ors are char­ac­ter­ized by an open-con­cept floor plan that’s at once nav­i­ga­ble and beau­ti­ful, said Wil­lis. “Take the Ta­ma­rack, for ex­am­ple,” she said. “The sec­ond level, which I re­fer to as the ‘liv­ing level’, is ab­so­lutely stun­ning with a 12-foot is­land, all kinds of room to move and gor­geous fin­ishes sur­round­ing you.” Those fin­ishes, which in­clude op­tions such as plank floor­ing and quartz coun­ter­tops (in white, grey or dark fin­ishes), com­bine with the er­gonom­i­cally sound floor plans to cre­ate suites that will meet a wide va­ri­ety of needs. “From our Cedar plan at 1,046 sq. ft. to our Ta­ma­rack plan at 1,552 sq. ft., we’ve made sure to build floor plans that are suited to a va­ri­ety of buy­ers,” she said. “We have young, first-time buy­ers who love the space and value they get in the Cedar, which comes with a sin­gle at­tached garage.” Like­wise, folks from other walks of life are also grav­i­tat­ing to the thought­fully de­signed town­homes. “Pro­fes­sion­als, fam­i­lies and down­siz­ers ap­pre­ci­ate the ex­tra fea­tures of the Ta­ma­rack, like the 12-foot kitchen is­land and dou­ble-at­tached garage. In be­tween, we have other sizes and lay­outs that of­fer the same great liv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, but al­low buy­ers to choose a floor plan that feels right for them.” Re­gard­less of which town­home buy­ers choose, one fea­ture is univer­sal, added Wil­lis. “Each town­home comes with a gen­er­ous front (wood) porch and a spa­cious sun bal­cony, so res­i­dents will be able to en­ter­tain out­doors with­out the work or has­sle that comes with main­tain­ing a yard,” she said. “The garages are also per­fect for the win­ter months, and all land­scap­ing and shov­el­ling will also be taken care of.” She added that with sev­eral move-in-ready units avail­able for view­ing, prospec­tive buy­ers can get a real-life glimpse of what the town­homes look like. ‘I think it’s a real ad­van­tage that peo­ple can see ex­actly what they would be pur­chas­ing. You can buy a move-in-ready unit that best meets your needs and tastes, or you can opt to work with our de­sign con­sul­tant on the fin­ishes that you want in a new unit. Right now, there are 29 com­pleted unit, and there will be 75 units in to­tal spread out over nine build­ings. There’s go­ing to be some­thing for ev­ery­one.” That univer­sal ap­peal is re­flected by the pop­u­lar­ity of pre­vi­ous projects in Bridg­wa­ter For­est, said Wil­lis. “Our buy­ers just love the town­home life­style. Within the last year, we’ve sold out two projects in Bridg­wa­ter For­est, and the units in Sage Creek have been tweaked to make them even bet­ter,” she said. “Street­side is ex­cited to bring such af­ford­able, liv­able — and beau­ti­ful — homes to a great com­mu­nity that of­fers an abun­dance of con­ve­niences and a won­der­ful lo­ca­tion.” For more in­for­ma­tion on Bluestem town­homes, visit www.bluestem­con­dos.ca or con­tact Glen McAn­gus or George Matwichuk of Royal LePage Top Pro­duc­ers at (204) 955-3922.
