Soho has buy­ers in ‘pocket’

Du­plex con­tains pocket of­fice on main floor

In many hous­ing de­signs, an open-con­cept plan con­nects three rooms. This pop­u­lar main floor lay­out in­cludes the kitchen, din­ing room and liv­ing room.

But one more room is added to the mix in a new show home by Lionsworth­e Homes. A home of­fice joins the open-con­cept lay­out in a new du­plex model in SkyView Ranch named Soho.

Called “the pocket of­fice,” the space — which has a built-in desk — sits just off the liv­ing room.

Whether fin­ish­ing off work from the day job or just surf­ing the In­ter­net, res­i­dents can be on­line and stay con­nected with other peo­ple at home.

In ad­di­tion to the open con­cept, the main floor feels spa­cious due to soar­ing nine-foot ceil­ings.

The kitchen boasts 42-inch dark maple cab­i­nets and cus­tom­made coun­ter­tops with an eat­ing bar.

It also fea­tures a full-height, glass-tile back­splash and a stain­less-steel ap­pli­ance pack­age in­clud­ing dish­washer and a mi­crowave with hood fan, along with a fridge and a stove with a glass cook­top.

In ad­di­tion, there’s a dou­ble­bowl, stain­less-steel kitchen sink with a chrome veg­gie sprayer.

The kitchen also opens to a spa­cious pantry.

A din­ing room is lo­cated be­tween the kitchen and liv­ing room.

A loft, full bath­room and two bed­rooms — in­clud­ing a master suite — are on the sec­ond floor.

The master bed­room con­nects to an en­suite and walk-in closet.

The en­suite fea­tures in­clude over­sized mod­ern chrome fix­tures, a glass mo­saic tile back­splash and maple cab­i­nets.

The loft is dressed as a sec­ond of­fice, of­fer­ing a more pri­vate space to tackle work at home.

But the space is multi-pur­pose and can be used as a nurs­ery.

The home’s ex­te­rior has a neigh­bourly feel with an invit­ing front porch.

The Soho comes with an as­sort­ment of en­ergy ef­fi­cient fea­tures. This in­cludes a drip hu­mid­i­fier, 50-gal­lon en­ergy saver elec­tric hot-wa­ter tank and a high-ef­fi­ciency fur­nace.

It is also equipped with a com­plete security sys­tem that in­cludes a key­pad and mo­tion con­trol, along with hard­wired car­bon monox­ide and smoke de­tec­tors.

The main floor half bath­room is ad­ja­cent to the kitchen and fea­tures a porce­lain pedestal sink un­der a mir­ror.

The home also comes with a dent­free stain grade fi­bre­glass front door, a dou­ble car park­ing pad and rough-ins for a gar­bu­ra­tor and VacuFlow.
