The best of all worlds
Beattie Homes’ Villas at Cranston
Villa living offers the best of all worlds. The homes are spacious bungalow styles with room to grow. And they have all the advantages of a single-family home without the price tag.
The villas are duplex-styled homes that offer spacious living all on one level — no stairs to climb. And yet, the living space can be expanded if needed.
Beattie Homes’ Villas at Cranston is the perfect example.
The Chancellor II is a great bungalow with 1,235 square feet on the main floor that is an open floor plan with drama, and a master bedroom and ensuite. But it comes with a twist. The lower level has been developed, adding another 893 square feet, and the two-storey great room has space for a 697-square-foot loft.
The home comes with an attached, two-car garage in front, a deck, grassed yard and fence out back.
The foyer is sunken with the den up three steps to the right. A large opening in the wall of the den has a decorative grill feature that stands out in the foyer below, as well as in the den.
The garage entrance, half-bath and laundry room are to the left of the foyer.
The staircase, both up and down, hugs the wall to the left. The upper staircase has open risers and the spindles are square.
The kitchen is to the right — a grand gourmet kitchen with all the necessities for cooking and entertaining friends and family. It’s in a long L-shape with cupboards of dark-stained maple running all the way down two walls. Add on the high-end Dacor stainless steel built-in appliances, the long, narrow glass-block backsplash and the exotic cream and grey granite countertops and it’s a room that captures the eye immediately.
The long, rectangular island has a flush eating area along the outside edge and a wine fridge is at the end, next to the goodsized nook.
