There are just five dif­fer­ent floor plans in the lat­est condo de­vel­op­ment to spring up in the es­tab­lished com­mu­nity of North Haven, but each is a gem.

You know you’re in for a treat as soon as you see Havenworth from the street.

The unique build­ing looks like some­thing you’d find in the high­est-end re­sort prop­er­ties in Can­more.

It has a metic­u­lous at­ten­tion to ev­ery small de­tail, along with am­ple use of rock and beams to high­light ar­eas.

There are also large, wrap-around bal­conies up high and pat­terned, stamped con­crete walks mixed with gen­er­ous land­scap­ing.

The condo has just 20 units al­to­gether, with five per floor — each ac­cessed from a cen­tral hall­way that’s in an oc­tag­o­nal shape, with doors into each suite at each an­gle high­lighted with a gran­ite floor plate.

In­side each unit, es­tate fin­ishes are ev­ery­where, in­clud­ing domed win­dows with deep, rich African ma­hogany frames match­ing the wide base­boards.

Ex­otic wood is a key to the el­e­gant decor. Lyp­tus wood cup­boards are in a flat Mis­sion style in kitchens, topped with twists of metal for han­dles.

The floors are an en­gi­neered Pan­gali iron­wood that re­sem­bles the warm, vi­brancy of rich teak. In­te­rior doors are an­other unique fin­ish: Sapelle wood in a hor­i­zon­tal grain.

Rock is in abun­dance, as it is out­side. Look for it on walls sur­round­ing the gas fire­place and in unique tile treat­ments be­tween up­per and lower kitchen cab­i­nets.

Sev­eral show suites are on dis­play, each with its own spe­cial fin­ishes and treat­ments, but only one is fur­nished and dec­o­rated.

SKitchen ap­pli­ances are all topof-the-line, in­clud­ing Miele dish­wash­ers with the con­trols in­side the door pan­els, and a Jenn-Air side-by-side fridge and oven.

Units range from 1,130 square feet for a two-bed­room model to 1,905 square feet for a three-bed­room model.

All units have heated and se­cured un­der­ground park­ing with stor­age lock­ers. Big­ger units have two un­der­ground stalls. The top floor has 12-to 14-foot ceil­ings and the al­ready-men­tioned wrap­around decks. Other floors have 9.5-foot ceil­ings and two sep­a­rate bal­conies or pa­tios, as the case may be.

Be­cause some units face 14th Street, triplepane­d win­dows have been used to cut down on traf­fic noise.

The con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion is just a few min­utes drive from John Lau­rie Boule­vard, so ac­cess to Deer­foot Trail or points west — in­clud­ing Foothills Hospi­tal, Mar­ket Mall or the Trans-Canada High­way to Banff — is fast and con­ve­nient.

At the same time, be­cause the com­mu­nity is al­ready long-es­tab­lished, ser­vices are close and con­ve­nient. The Cal­gary Win­ter Club, for in­stance, is di­rectly ad­ja­cent to Havenworth.
