Buy­ers take shine to Cop­per­field

Across from large green space

Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - KATHY MCCORMICK

With a his­tory con­struct­ing hous­ing in Cal­gary, a B.C. de­vel­oper has re­turned with big plans and projects that have al­ready hit the street run­ning.

Stonecroft has three de­vel­op­ments un­der­way — all of­fer­ing value-ori­ented liv­ing at the right price.

Cop­per­field is one ex­am­ple.

Lo­cated in the south­east Hopewell Res­i­den­tial Com­mu­ni­ties’ neigh­bour­hood, it’s across from a large green space off McIvor Boule­vard S.E. that has al­ready been built, in­clud­ing a gen­er­ous play struc­ture that’s sure to keep the kids en­ter­tained.

A small com­mer­cial cen­tre is pro­posed for across the street to add con­ve­nience — and Stonecroft has fu­ture plans for an­other multi-fam­ily site ad­ja­cent to it.

The de­vel­op­ment con­sists of a block of stacked town­house units in the cen­tre sur­rounded by more tra­di­tional, street-ori­ented townhomes in a square around it.

Stacked units that started at just $149,900 plus GST have al­ready sold out — and about half of the oth­ers are sold as well.

The tra­di­tional townhomes are 1,219 and 1,247 square feet with three bed­rooms, along with an ad­di­tional 600 square feet in the un­fin­ished base­ment to ex­pand.

These start at $234,900 to $241,900 plus GST.

Out­door liv­ing space has been max­i­mized with both a front porch and back pa­tio. Each unit has a cov­ered park­ing space al­lot­ted to it.

The spec­i­fi­ca­tions in­clude main­te­nance-free sid­ing, vinyl decks and con­crete pa­tios, and 30-year as­phalt shin­gles on roofs. In­side, look for fea­tures such as high­ef­fi­ciency wa­ter heaters and fur­naces, low-flush toi­lets, a blinds pack­age and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing the over-therange mi­crowave/hood fan and Ther­mafoil kitchen cab­i­nets.

The group of townhomes looks at­trac­tive from the street due to large, cov­ered ve­ran­das an­chored with shake de­tail on ta­pered col­umns, along with var­ied rooflines with shakes un­der peaks, and trim.

The homes have fea­tures that in­clude semi-pri­vate spaces for var­i­ous func­tions, with the spacious great room, din­ing room and kitchen on the first floor, as well as a powder room.

The L-shaped kitchen has an op­tional eat­ing bar sep­a­rat­ing it from the gen­er­ous

Up­stairs, the three bed­rooms in­clude a mas­ter suite with a walk-in closet and a full ensuite with shower.

The base­ment has space for an­other bed­room, the util­ity room with washer and dryer (in­cluded in the price) and a games room, if de­sired.

The sold-out stacked units, mean­while, con­sist of two dif­fer­ent types of homes — one-bed­room units with main-floor en­try through a pa­tio, and two-bed­room units up­stairs.

The one-bed­room homes are ei­ther 515 square feet on the main floor with the kitchen in a gal­ley-style — with op­tional eat­ing bar op­po­site the great room, and the bed­room at the back — or a 625-square-foot model, again with the great room at the front with a small desk built in along one wall.

The kitchen is in a Ushape at the back, ad­ja­cent to the bed­room.

Both units have enough space down­stairs to put in one or two ad­di­tional bed­rooms, a bath­room and a fam­ily room if de­sired, as well as a stacked washer and dryer.

The up­per units range from 1,208 to 1,253 square feet of main liv­ing space, each with two bed­rooms up­stairs, one a mas­ter with a full ensuite, the other ei­ther with a cheater door to the main bath­room or ad­ja­cent to the main bath­room.

Both have walk-in clos­ets. A sep­a­rate linen stor­age and stacked washer and dryer fin­ish off the up­per level. Bay win­dows both front and back add to the vis­ual ap­peal and bring ad­di­tional light in­side.

The main floor plan on the smaller unit also has a bay win­dow both front and back, dou­ble clos­ets flank­ing the en­try to the powder room, and a large L-shaped kitchen with the en­trance to the deck at the side.

The other plan in­cludes a den and open floor plan, with the great room at 16 feet by 12 feet.

Both of these units had an elec­tric fire­place as an op­tion.

These units were priced from about $190,000 plus GST.

Al­though they are sold out, the next de­vel­op­ment — which will be across the street from the cur­rent site and by the small com­mer­cial cen­tre planned for the area — will con­sist of 105 units in to­tal, again of­fer­ing a com­bi­na­tion of stacked and tra­di­tional townhomes.

Mean­while, con­struc­tion is ex­pected to start soon on the first site, with first pos­ses­sions by this fall.

A sales trailer is on site.
