Project of­fers cosy Haven

Havenworth by Courte­nay Group

Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - AN­DREA COX

With its ex­ten­sive use of stone and tim­ber, the Havenworth ex­udes the re­laxed ap­peal of a chic moun­tain re­treat.

This small, in­ti­mate four­storey project de­vel­oped by Courte­nay Group is in the midst of the well-es­tab­lished north­west neigh­bour­hood of North Haven, just a stone’s throw from the Cal­gary Win­ter Club and a few min­utes’ drive from Nose Hill Park.

The project of­fers 20 so­phis­ti­cated and high-end lux­ury units, with a mix of two-bed­room, two-bed­room-plus-den, and three­bed­room units.

“We’ve al­ready sold 10 units,” says Doreen Mal­larky, sales agent on the project, who adds the range of buy­ers is varied.

“We’ve had in­ter­est from young pro­fes­sion­als to empty nesters and quite a few of our own­ers are mem­bers of the Win­ter Club. That seems to be a real draw.”

Each of the four floors fea­tures only f ive units, each ex­tend­ing from an oc­tag­o­nal cen­tral foyer, creat- ing a sense of in­ti­macy and co­he­sive­ness be­tween the units.

“There are no long cor­ri­dors, so ev­ery­body gets to know each other,” says Mal­larky.

The project’s three show suites are lo­cated on the main floor.

The 1905-square-foot cor­ner unit with three bed­rooms is def initely a show­stop­per.

The splen­dour starts at the en­try, where el­e­gant stone tile frames the solid f ir front door.

One steps across a gran­ite thresh­old into a foyer with a tiered and lay­ered etched glass wall.

Past the foyer, the open con­cept plan through the liv­ing, din­ing and kitchen ar­eas is spa­cious and bright.

On the west wall, fram­ing the liv­ing area, large floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows cap­ture views onto the largest of the home’s three ter­races.

The south wall in the liv­ing area fea­tures a con­tem­po­rary gas f ire­place with a pol­ished mar­ble hearth and a floor-to-ceil­ing sur­round.

The kitchen is a well-de­signed and well-def ined space within the open plan.

A large eat­ing bar dou­bles as an ex­tra prep area and the stain­lesssteel ap­pli­ances in­clude a Jen­nAir f ive-burner elec­tric cook­top, self­clean­ing oven and 25-cu­bic-foot re­frig­er­a­tor.

It also has a Braun stain­less steel hood fan and Miele dish­washer.

Mak­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion a snap, am­ple cabi­nets and draw­ers are cus­tom crafted for spices and kitchen uten­sils.

Through­out the home, the use of unique and in­ter­est­ing wood de­tail­ing is ap­par­ent ev­ery­where from the choco­late stained floor­ing con­sist­ing of en­gi­neered Pan­gali Iron­wood hard­wood, to the African Sapelle ma­hogany base­boards and in­te­rior doors.

The unit also con­tains Shak­er­style cabi­nets made of ex­otic and sus­tain­able Lyp­tus wood.

Other thought­ful fea­tures in- clude 76-inch raised van­i­ties in the main and mas­ter bath­rooms, plenty of shelves in the over­sized laun­dry room, and a built-in vacu­flo sys­tem.

Tripled glazed glass al­lows the in­te­rior to re­main peace­fully quiet, de­spite the prox­im­ity to 14th Street.

Views are spec­tac­u­lar, es­pe­cially from the third and fourth lev­els — where, de­pend­ing on the condo’s ori­en­ta­tion, city sky­scrapers or moun­tain vis­tas daz­zle.

All homes are in­di­vid­u­ally heated and air-con­di­tioned.

Home prices in­clude stor­age space and ti­tled un­der­ground heated and se­cured park­ing spa­ces (three bed­room units come with two ti­tled spa­ces).
