The best of all worlds

Beat­tie Homes’ Vil­las at Cranston

Calgary Herald - Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos -

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.
