Town­houses of­fer plenty of choices

Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condo -

Aswing­ing sin­gle’s pad? Maybe, maybe not, but def­i­nitely a cool pad. The show suite of Vil­lage Homes, by Mat­tamy Homes Ltd. West­ern Canada Divi­sion in its Wind­song com­mu­nity in Air­drie, has the touches and fin­ishes any man or woman would be proud to show off to vis­i­tors.

And ac­cord­ing to Mat­tamy vice-pres­i­dent of land de­vel­op­ment Greg Mills, the free­hold town­houses have been pop­u­lar.

Only 18 of the 64 units in the first phase are left to sell — and all of that has been done without the ben­e­fit of a show suite, which of­fi­cially opens to­day at 11 a.m.

“I think the ap­peal is a mix of unique floor plans and price,” he says from the show suite.

Prices range from $209,000 to $246,000 for the homes that mea­sure be­tween 1,100 and 1,400 square feet. Be­cause they are free­hold homes, there are no condo fees.

“We’ve tried to ap­peal to the younger, sin­gle buy­ers with the Vil­lage Homes,” adds Mills.

Tones of grey with black and white dom­i­nate the 1,315-square­foot Wind­way model just down from the pre­sen­ta­tion and sales cen­tre on Eighth Street. And cap­ping it all off is a sen­si­ble, ap­peal­ing floor plan reach­ing three lev­els high.

Built slab on grade so there is no base­ment, the ground level has a sin­gle garage next to the front door. An in­te­rior door from the garage opens to a flex area that, in this case, holds a home of­fice area.

The me­chan­i­cal room is also on this level.

A car­peted stair­way leads up to the main liv­ing area of the home, but on the way you pass the laun­dry area with stack­ing washer and dryer.

At the land­ing, there is the stylish kitchen with a com­bi­na­tion din­ing and liv­ing area.

The work­able kitchen has been fin­ished with ce­ramic tile floor­ing, glass tile back­splashes, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and black gran­ite that cov­ers all the coun­ter­tops and the eat­ing penin­sula that sits two and pro­vides space for food prepa­ra­tion. Off the kitchen is pow­der room. The din­ing area is large enough to seat six to eight peo­ple and the ad­ja­cent liv­ing room is large enough for a ch­ester­field, a cou­ple of chairs, ta­bles and ac­ces­sories.

A door from this room leads to a spa­cious front bal­cony.

The up­per­most floor of the town­house holds the bed­room area. In the Wind­way, Mat­tamy de­cided to show the one-bed­roomwith-den op­tion.

At the land­ing, dou­ble doors open to the den that has a sofa bed. In an al­cove is a com­puter desk. Just out­side the dou­ble doors is the home’s main bath.

At the front of the home is the mas­ter bed­room with walk-in closet and a ta­ble that can be used for var­i­ous pur­poses — maybe as a makeup desk.

The en­suite has a stall shower, no tub, gran­ite-topped van­ity and ce­ramic tile floor. Stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tions for the Vil­lage Homes in­clude low E win­dows, vinyl sid­ing, alu­minum rail­ings, lam­i­nate coun­ter­tops, tile back­splashes, high-ef­fi­ciency fur­nace, pro­gram- mable ther­mo­stat, and floor­ing of vinyl, car­pet and hard­wood.

“Vil­lage Home cus­tomers have one ap­point­ment with the de­sign con­sul­tant which takes places ap­prox­i­mately five to eight months be­fore pos­ses­sion,” says Mills.

“In terms of decor cus­tomiza­tion, we of­fer a full range of op­tions in­clud­ing tile, hard­wood, paint, and coun­ter­tops. Th­ese op­tions are se­lected in our de­sign cen­tre with our de­sign con­sul­tant.”

The kitchen has gran­ite coun­ter­tops, glass tile back­splashes and stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.
