A Flair for Living
Sng-development offers exciting alternatives and upscale attitude.
Partners Nick Sherby and Jay Gefen are two friends who honed their skills overseas, creating luxury condos and custom family homes in Europe with over ten years of experience in real estate development. “We are proud to bring our expertise and fresh, advanced designs from all over the world to Calgary,” admits Nick Sherby, a builder of unique style, quality finishes, and a passion for the custom home industry.
For the past three years SNG has established a loyal team of experienced trades and suppliers in Calgary to advance this standard through desirable finishes and elegant décors, offering exciting alternatives within boundaries. Located in Altadore, this 3,500 square foot, two-story, show home with finished basement exhibits taste and upscale attitude within an open layout enhanced by multiple attractions.
A wide infill that evokes a remarkably spacious feel, designer Brent Ellergodt tweaked an existing design to create a flexible home of fluid function. “The living spaces are larger than what you would normally find in an infill, with contemporary style and bright, clean-lined interiors that engage
unobstructed sight lines that sustain a sense of generosity,” describes the principal of Brent Ellergodt Design. Appealing to a wide demographic with its simple elements and no-fuss features, visitors frequently comment on the home’s ample flows, which is augmented by its multiple tempered glass finishes, allowing abundant light flows throughout the home.
Featuring a basement that sustains its bright, modern décor, a gym, wine cellar, and full wet bar with a relaxed lounge area provides function and entertainment with an added bonus room on the upper floor offering flex space potential. “The home was designed to accommodate a family with two or three kids,” says Jay Gefen of its four bedrooms, abundant storage, and south-facing yard that includes a two-car garage with recreation vehicle parking.
Tall ceilings and an open staircase with a delightful birds-eyeview from above, heightens the draw of this alluring home. Energy savings was further addressed with triple-pane windows, maximized insulation, and low flow toilets. Warmed floors in the basement and master ensuite also ensure comfort.
“People are drawn to its unique features, like the glass wall divider in the master bedroom and the high quality finishes used. We didn’t cut corners,” adds Sherby whose foray into warm contemporary design is equally matched by their expertise with traditional concepts. “Visitors also love the smooth flows of the huge kitchen that is a great gathering spot with its seventeen-foot island. We wanted to provide something outside of the box, something less mainstream and more sophisticated in its presentation.”
