Mod­ern LIV­ING

Sage Creek town­home of­fers loads of fea­tures and ter­rific lo­ca­tion

SOME­TIMES, a home’s look can be de­ceiv­ing. In some cases, it might look plain from the out­side, yet be dy­na­mite in­side. In other in­stances, it might pos­sess great curb ap­peal, but be rather un­ap­peal­ing once you step in­side. Then — on rare oc­ca­sions — a home’s looks are a mere pre­lude to what awaits once you walk in­side. That’s the case with the 1,665-square-foot two-storey town­home­style con­do­minium found at 5 Tansi Lane in Sage Creek, said Ch­eryl Thurston of Realty Ex­ec­u­tives First Choice. “This is a bright, spa­cious, well-main­tained and beau­ti­fully up­graded Ran­dall-built home in a pre­mium lo­ca­tion,” said Thurston. “Its de­sign (the town­home was built in 2009) was ahead of its time. There’s just so much open space, and each area feels that much big­ger and brighter be­cause ceil­ings are nine-feet high; the high ceil­ings then al­lowed for the place­ment of huge win­dows ev­ery­where.” Wow fac­tor is front and cen­tre the mo­ment you en­ter the home. First, the foyer is de­mar­cated in lux­u­ri­ous fash­ion by gor­geous taupe/beige tile with a cir­cu­lar (choco­late brown) tile in­lay. Next, a dra­matic nat­u­ral maple stair­case an­gles its way smartly up to the se­cond floor to the left of the foyer. Then, there’s the great room, said Thurston’s sales part­ner, Jon Wiebe. “It’s hard to know where to be­gin, it’s such an amaz­ing space,” he said. “Both the fam­ily room and din­ing room are de­fined by (white) pil­lared en­trances with maple capped one-third walls. The fam­ily room and din­ing room are sep­a­rated neatly by a gor­geous three-sided gas fire­place, the fam­ily room has a huge pic­ture win­dow that lets in tons of nat­u­ral light, and the nat­u­ral maple hard­woods just gleam.” He added that the great room’s avail­able space has been well-dis­trib­uted. “The en­tire area is 24.5 feet by 11.75 feet. The din­ing room is huge, and eas­ily holds a ta­ble for eight, with room to ex­tend it out, if nec­es­sary. On the other side of the fire­place is the fam­ily room, which of­fers plenty of room for fur­ni­ture and all kinds of nat­u­ral light. It’s a per­fect area for en­ter­tain­ing.” Thurston said the ad­ja­cent eat-in kitchen — which also con­tains a handy main floor pow­der room — is equally spec­tac­u­lar. “It’s ab­so­lutely huge, with room for a ta­ble for four and door that leads out to a back­yard with large deck, dou­ble garage and fenc­ing on ei­ther side,” she said. “There’s also an is­land with raised eat­ing bar for two, tons of nat­u­ral maple cab­i­netry (with dark maple trim), gor­geous tile back­splash, un­der-cab­i­net light­ing, cor­ner pantry and newer stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances that come with the home.” Head­ing up­stairs to the home’s se­cond floor is a plea­sure thanks to the afore­men­tioned nat­u­ral maple stair­case, which adds an­other wel­come dash of style. Ar­rival at the top re­veals a gen­er­ous — and light-bathed — land­ing around which two bed­rooms and a four-piece main bath re­volve to the left of the stairs. Mean­while, the mas­ter suite is set down its own seven-foot hall­way — cre­ated by the a one-third maple capped wall that bor­ders the stairs — on the right-hand side. The de­sign creates a lay­out that of­fers the best of both worlds: am­ple space to move be­tween spa­ces, yet the mas­ter bed­room is a pri­vate, de­fined space. “The two sec­ondary bed­rooms are both a good size and come with good stor­age space,” said Thurston. “As is usual with Ran­dall Homes, the bed­rooms have huge win­dows. That al­lows all kinds of nat­u­ral light to spill into the land­ing. Even more light pours in from a huge pic­ture win­dow in the mas­ter suite.”

Not only is the mas­ter suite filled with light, but it’s also filled with lux­ury and util­ity. The lux­ury comes in the form of a spa­cious en­suite that’s been out­fit­ted with an oval soaker tub, four-foot shower and nat­u­ral maple van­ity; the util­ity is de­rived from the walk-in closet. “It’s not only huge, but it comes with a large win­dow and all kinds of wire racks for stor­age,” said Wiebe. “The mas­ter bed­room is awe­some in ev­ery re­spect.” The same can be said of the home’s lower level. Fully de­vel­oped and of­fer­ing about 670 sq. ft. of liv­able space, it’s at once lux­u­ri­ous and prac­ti­cal. “You don’t al­ways have this much space to de­velop in the lower level of a town­home-style condo, but this one does,” Thurston said. “It’s been beau­ti­fully uti­lized with a rec room that’s been pre-wired for sur­round sound – there’s a me­dia area, games area and wet/ dry bar — plus a wing with ex­er­cise room/of­fice, laun­dry room and gor­geous three-piece bath with cus­tom tile/glass shower with rain shower head.” Fi­nally, there’s the home’s lo­ca­tion, which is ex­cep­tional, said Wiebe. “Its lo­ca­tion is one of the best in the com­mu­nity. Ac­cess in and out of the area is quick and easy, you’re a two-minute walk from Sage Creek Vil­lage (shop­ping/ser­vices area), walk­ing/cy­cling trails and wetlands are just steps from the front door, and you’re tucked away on a quiet street. It’s a move-in-ready home that’s ideal for sin­gles, young cou­ples, fam­i­lies or empty nesters.”
