Chesapeake’s all in the mix
Project aimed at range of buyers
Ayoung couple take their dog for a walk at about the same time an older fellow brushes the snow off his car.
This mixing of different ages and groups of people is partly behind the success of the Chesapeake project for Aspire Condo Living by Jayman.
Of the 110 units making up the townhouse development in Auburn Bay, only 15 are left to sell.
“We have a healthy mix of buyers, with about 40 per cent being first-timers, 30 per cent downsizing, and the other 30 per cent newly-singled and families,” says Aspire sales associate Mark Keating.
There are two models available — the Lakeview that ranges from 1,602 to 1,639 square feet, and the smaller Bayview from 1,312 to 1,394 square feet.
One of the two show homes is the 1,328-square-foot Bayview.
From the ceramic tile foyer, visitors step down into the combined living room/dining area finished with an umbriastained maple floor.
Adjacent to that is the kitchen, which has melamine cabinets, laminate countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass tile backsplashes and a pantry wall.
The show home has an op- tional finished basement level with space for a games table and sitting room with entertainment centre.
The laundry is in the mechanical room, while a full bath has a tub/shower and vanity with laminate top.
Back on the main floor, a bar with small wine rack, cabinets, and a small fridge is at the bottom of the stairway to the second floor.
At the second-floor landing, to the right is a bathroom with tub/shower.
Along the hall is a smaller bedroom next to the master suite with a walk-in closet.
It also has an ensuite with tub/shower, five-foot laminate-topped vanity, and fulllength mirror.
Another set of stairs leads to a loft that is finished with a sitting area and a home office.
