Buyers take shine to Copperfield
Across from large green space
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.
