IC Mt’s easy to wax lyri­cal about Rei­dBuilt Homes’ Opus floor plan. The du­plex show home in Kin­cora is a gen­er­ous 1,556-square-foot, two-storey home with three bed­rooms, an at­tached two-car garage — and some beau­ti­ful up­grades.

At 694 square feet, the main floor is ac­cessed from a cov­ered ve­randa at the front door or through the two-car garage.

The foyer in­cludes a closet to hang coats be­fore en­ter­ing the kitchen and great room.

The cof­fee-bean cab­i­nets, light gran­ite coun­ter­tops and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ance pack­age by Whirlpool pro­vide a mod­ern Euro­pean feel.

The kitchen is­land, which holds an un­der-mounted sink and dish­washer, has space for four peo­ple at the ex­tended counter.

The white glass tile back­splash makes the coun­ter­space bright to work on.

Next to the kitchen is the din­ing ta­ble, with slid­ing glass doors pro­vid­ing ac­cess to the back deck.

The great room is filled with light from two sides — a large win­dow to the back­yard and two ver­ti­cal win­dows flank­ing the fire­place.

The stone fire­place has an at­trac­tive built-in wooden man­tle, with enough space above for a flatscreen TV.

Up­stairs, the floor opens onto the sec­ond-level re­treat, here done as a me­dia room.

The sec­ond floor has 862 square feet with three bed­rooms, two bath­rooms and a laun­dry room.

To the right is the master bed­room with walk-in closet. A large win­dow fac­ing the back­yard, and two small, ver­ti­cal win­dows on ei­ther side of the bed, pro­vide cross-breeze po­ten­tial

Nearby is an at­trac­tive en­suite with a built-in soaker tub in the cor­ner, along with a glassed-in shower and sin­gle van­ity.

The sec­ond bed­room, with a gen­er­ous closet, is ac­cessed off the re­treat, while the third and slightly larger bed­room with walk-in closet is found down a short hall­way past the laun­dry closet and four-piece bath­room.

The home is prov­ing pop­u­lar with both young cou­ples and fam­i­lies, as well as older cou­ples, says Uniti area man­ager Jen­nifer Skapin of Rei­dBuilt Homes.

The Opus is one sev­eral floor plans in the Uniti group of de­signs of­fered by Rei­dBuilt Homnes in Kin­cora. Other in­clude Credo, Luxe, Maxim, Novus and Volo.

Floor plans range from 1,304 to 1,746 square feet, and start in the low $300,000s.

The Opus model starts at $344,199, in­clud­ing lot and GST, based on a $122,900 lot. The show home is priced at $393,520, in­clud­ing lot and GST.

It in­cludes up­grades such as knock­down ceil­ings, rounded cor­ners on walls, a built-in stereo sys­tem in the kitchen, liv­ing room and master bed­room, hard­wood floors on the main level, and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances and gran­ite coun­ter­tops in the kitchen.
