For those who chance upon the Serendip­ity show home, they will find a com­pact, well-laid floor plan that presents its space in a liv­able con­fig­u­ra­tion.

Jay­man modus’s town­home condo project in New Brighton has three floor plans to choose from — Serendip­ity, Bliss and Karma, rang­ing from 1,210 to 1,662 square feet.

The Serendip­ity has the small­est foot­print, with units be­tween 1,210 and 1,234 square feet.

With the dou­ble master bed­rooms and en­suites set up on the up­per level, this home would be spa­cious for room­mates.

It has enough sep­a­ra­tion be­tween its com­mon ar­eas to al­low for mul­ti­ple uses with­out en­croach­ing on each other.

It would also make a com­fort­able home for a cou­ple or sin­gle per­son. En­ter­ing on the ground level, which holds a sin­gle-car garage, the front foyer opens onto a sunny room with large win­dows. This could eas­ily be used for a home of­fice.

Along the hall to the garage are large stor­age clos­ets as well as the laun­dry.

Up to the main liv­ing area, the car­peted stairs open onto a short hall­way with wide-plank grey wood floor­ing with a large win­dow.

To the left is the kitchen and din­ing nook. Seat­ing for three at the ex­tended ledge on the penin­sula-style is­land al­lows for ca­sual con­ver­sa­tion with the cook.

The kitchen comes with mod­ern flat-panel cab­i­netry, with slen­der metal tabs as han­dles.

A nice touch is the cor­ners of the ledges in the kitchen and bath­rooms are trimmed to avoid catch­ing a sharp cor­ner.

Stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances en­hance the back­splash, set with small square tiles, and lam­i­nate coun­ter­tops, both en­com­pass­ing warm shades of brown. The dou­ble stain­less-steel sink is set into the is­land.

The cab­i­nets ex­tends past the re­frig­er­a­tor, which marks the end of the kitchen, pro­vid­ing a tidy place for ex­tra stor­age as well as more counter space.

Open to the kitchen is the din- ing nook, a sunny space with a glass door lead­ing to the bal­cony. It of­fers out­door bar­be­cue po­ten­tial, with enough room for ta­ble and chairs to en­joy din­ing al fresco.

Along the hall to the great room at the front of the home is a half-bath­room.

As this is an end unit, the room has a can­tilever to pop out some ex­tra space for the liv­ing area, here used to en­sconce a love seat.

The great room is bright and airy, with plenty of space for fur­ni­ture.

The up­per floor of­fers dou­ble master bed­rooms with en­suites, sep­a­rated by the stair­well and a short hall­way. Both of­fer dou­ble clos­ets for max­i­mum stor­age space, and are spa­cious, bright bed­rooms.

Adding to the sense of space are the nine-foot ceil­ings. Th­ese homes come with a choice of four colour pal­ettes.
